A hot tub provides a great outlet for relaxing your body, especially after a day of activities that leave you tender or sore.

The water jets deliver a massage in the water that keeps you calm and helps you relax. It is a wholesome treat for you and your family or friends, lying just within your reach. However, to ensure that this experience remains wonderful and enjoyable for all, you must maintain it regularly. This includes changing the water three to four times a year.

Swim spas have many practical benefits. They’re the perfect combination of a pool and hot tub, allowing you great flexibility in their use. Ideal for families with small children just learning how to swim, they’re also a great option for those who want a pool, but don’t have a big enough yard to accommodate one.

A swim spa is a great addition to any backyard. Not only does it help you to improve your fitness, it’s a great weapon to have in your arsenal to combat pain. Whether you suffer occasionally from tense, sore muscles or a more serious ailment such as arthritis, fibromyalgia or sciatica, a swim spa may be able to help you manage your condition and some of the symptoms, too.

A hot tub is a long-term investment in your health and overall wellness. And protecting that investment comes down to one thing: proper hot tub maintenance. One of the best ways to ensure your spa serves you well over the years is maintaining proper water chemistry. This is done by balancing the chemical properties of your hot tub water and keeping your sanitization system in good working order. Proper maintenance starts with having the right hot tub chemicals on hand, including bromine tablets, a pH balancer, a demineralizer, a spa shock and a water clarifier. A water softener and a defoamer can also be helpful.

It may sound complicated, but by following our step-by-step list, you will be an expert in hot tub maintenance in no time.

Can I Install a Hot Tub in the Winter?

If you wish to have a hot tub installed on your deck or patio, that can be done no matter what time of year it is, so long as you are prepared.
