Do you really need someone to tell you how to enjoy your hot tub? Chances are you don’t, but the swimming pool service contractors from Best Pro Pool Service undersand that spending time in your family hot tub or spa doesn’t have to be a big production and you can take advantage of small snippets of time to get in a quick, relaxing soak.

At the end of a long day of working or taking care of family, there aren’t too many things more relaxing than spending time in the heated depths of your hot tub or spa. It doesn’t matter whether you’re spending time to take a long soak or if you simply want to get the chill out before you go to bed, there are some ways to make the most of time spent in your hot tub or spa.

How to enjoy your hot tub

  1. When you know you only have a few minutes to soak, take time to take a few deep, calming breaths and get yourself into the mindset of “relaxation” before you get into the water. Whether you’re sharing the hot tub with a friend or spouse or whether you’re alone, set the scene for relaxation through the use of soothing music, scented candles and taking time to enjoy the scenery. You could even relax in a hot tub or spa in a hotel as long as you have mentally prepared yourself for relaxation.

  2. Shower before you get into the hot tub or spa to remove any contaminants of the day, perfumes, deodorant and hair products. The hot water of the spa, along with the jets, will draw toxins out of your body and slough off dead skin cells. A soak in a hot tub imparts health benefits from ridding your body of impurities as well as relaxing away aching joints and muscles. Don’t bring in contaminants of the day, let the water work its magic on your clean skin.

  3. Eat a light meal (or no meal) before you soak to help the heated water detoxify your system. Don’t indulge in alcohol, caffeine, sugar and heavy foods before getting into the hot tub. The combination of heat and jets leads to dehydration; adding alcohol to the mix can make that worse.

When you have a hot tub installed, you need to decide whether it will be in a room in the house, on your deck or in another part of the yard or even in a corner of the swimming pool, you will also need to decide how many people will potentially use it at one time.

A hot tub is a structure that you can use year round — depending on where it’s place and how easy it is for you to get into and out of it during snow or other inclement weather conditions. Talk to us today if you’re thinking of adding a hot tub or spa to your backyard this year.
