Hot Tubs are No Longer a Luxury item

A Backyard Spa is Not Only Reserved for the Rich and Famous

The hot tub of today has evolved into more than a mere luxury item:

In days gone by, a hot tub was a luxury item. Like many things common in our lives today that is hard to believe.

The modern spa and hot tub is definitely a place for socialization, but also a component for health and wellness. Recognizing this, spa manufacturers offer hot tubs with a variety of features that are highly customizable.

If you are looking to purchase a new spa one of the first things you will want to consider is if you want the spa to be built-in, whether into a deck, part of a pool, or otherwise integrated into your landscaping. Or would you prefer a traditional stand-alone feature? There is no right answer, it depends on your preference, how you will use the hot tub, and your property.

Another consideration is the size of the unit. How will you use the spa? If you want it to be a socializing venue, then you might want one larger than if it is for one or two people to use for health benefits. Especially if you are looking to soothe specific aching spots, be sure that the location and height of the jets and the water depth will suit your needs.

There are a variety of brands available for your consideration. There are even some that allow for “smart” features such as starting your heater from a remote location, using your phone, so it is warm by the time you are ready for it.

Fortunately, there are hot tubs available to fit just about every yard and budget. Talk to us and we will help you determine the right one for your family. We can even provide refurbished models–often from someone who has decided to get a newer, more sophisticated model. Our refurbished spas and spa equipment can really help out those who are on a tighter budget.

One of the biggest health benefits for today’s spa owners is hydrotherapy. Because our bodies are buoyant, being in the water takes pressure off the joints. This not only aids in relaxation but it also helps with joint pain caused by injury and illness, such as arthritis.

Spa’s therapeutic benefits extend to our muscles as well. Whether you have been working hard, exercise a lot, or have muscle pain or even restless leg syndrome, a good soak can help relax your body so you heal faster and get a good night’s sleep.

Some of the biggest brand names in spas are Jacuzzi, Caldera, Sundance, and Cal-Spa. Frankly, there are so many brands out there that to list them all would be…well…boring. So if you have a particular brand in mind, or if you are not sure, give us a call and we can help you select the right brand for you: one that fits your needs and your budget.

We specialize in creating a hot tub that is energy efficient. We want your spa to be affordable so you use it. After all, if you don’t use it you don’t get the health benefits.

Of course, if you want, you can have a spa with all the bells and whistles that would still be appropriately featured on the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. You can have extra large hot tubs that hold 10 or more adults, gazebos, fountains, lighting displays, speakers–above ground and even underwater–just about anything that you want.
