Frequently Asked Questions About Hot Tubs

What are the most popular reasons people buy hot tubs?

The luxury of a hot tub stretches far beyond simple home-improvement or entertainment, a hot tub is an investment in your health and well-being. Our owners say that they have more energy, sleep better, and can do more with their day. The physical wellness benefits of hot tubs are delivered in three ways: heat increases circulation by dilating blood vessels, buoyancy relieves joint stress by reducing your weight by 90%, and powerful jets soothe away tension with massage. All of these elements work together to provide a variety of health benefits that ultimately allow our owners to lead more active and fulfilled lives.

Are hot tubs good for your health?

Hot tubs are great for your health! Hot water therapy provides a multitude of benefits to a person’s overall well-being. Hot tubs can be used to conduct many different types of therapy. Many people think of soaking in a hot tub as just a way to reduce stress, but there are genuine physiological benefits to utilizing your hot tub. Hot tubs can provide relief from certain health conditions, ailments, and all the other discomforts life brings your way. Our Limelight and Highlife spa collections focus on exceptional performance with unique ways of hydrotherapy massage bringing you the highest levels of relaxation.

Which hot tub chemicals are best?

There are three main approaches to hot tub water care. Traditional spa water care is the most manual approach, and also the least expensive. Traditional care requires the spa owner to manually add an approved sanitizer to the spa once a week and before each use. With traditional spa water care you will typically use one of two sanitizers – Chlorine or Bromine. These are the primary actors for killing bacteria and viruses as well as preventing algae growth. Chlorine levels should stay between 3 and 5 parts per million. Do not use tri-chlor chlorine, any type of compressed bromine or chlorine, acid or any type of sanitizer which is not recommended specifically for your spa. Ozone with MPS and Silver Ions is slightly more expensive than traditional water care. While still a fairly manual process, it requires a little less interaction from the spa owner than traditional water care. The main benefit is crystal clear spa water with very little chlorine needed. Typically the most expensive option, salt water systems automatically generate the sanitizer needed, making water care much more hands-free. Depending on the type of salt system you choose, there are a number of other added benefits to consider – including better-feeling and longer-lasting spa water. The new FreshWater Salt System is designed to make water care as easy as possible. Available on all Highlife Collection and Limelight Collection spas, this easy-to-use salt water system eliminates the worry of keeping spa water clean, clear and sanitized for a full year. With just a little salt in your spa water, the system generates chlorine automatically so you’ll spend less time measuring and adding chemicals.

What’s involved in hot tub maintenance?

Hot tub maintenance is a breeze when you use the right tools. We offer a variety of water care systems, as well as many different spa care products. The easiest way to maintain your tub is with our FreshWater Salt System. In any salt system, an electrode cell transfers energy to the water to convert salt into a sanitizer. When using a salt water system, the hot tub owner still needs to balance the spa water and dip a test strip to determine how often the system should run. The electrode cell will create the sanitizer automatically so the spa owner spends much less time manually treating the spa. The cell will need to be replaced at regular intervals, which vary depending on the type of system you have. The new FreshWater Salt System is designed to make water care easier than ever. This system eliminates the worry of keeping spa water clean and sanitized for an entire year. This unique system makes spa ownership easier than ever by removing the guesswork and hassle of water care maintenance.

How often would I need to service my hot tub?

Depending on what hot tub and water system you are using, this number could vary. However, the FreshWater Salt System that was previously talked about allows you to only have to service your hot tub once a year! Alternative options typically require weekly or monthly service to be done.
