With summer in full swing, it is the perfect time to dive into the relaxing and rejuvenating world of hot tubs. Whether you are a seasoned hot tub owner or just starting your journey, DFW Hot Tubs has you covered with fantastic tips to help you make the most of your hot tub experience during the summer season. Let us get started!
1. Optimal Temperature & Timing:
When the temperature rises outside, it is essential to adjust your hot tub settings accordingly. Lower the temperature of your hot tub to a comfortable level, so you can enjoy a soothing soak without feeling overheated.
- If you enjoy the hot water and its benefits, consider setting the temperature to 100 degrees F. Consider using your hot tub during the cooler parts of the day, such as early morning or late evening, when the weather is more pleasant.
- Maximize your air-knobs! Dialing on your air injectors to the jets will make your experience even more pleasant during the summertime.
- Setting the temperature of your spa to the lowest setting (usually around 70 degrees F) will allow you to operate your spa at ambient temperature during a hot summer day. PSA: if it’s over 100 degrees outside, expect the water to be in the high 80’s or low 90’s.
- Technically the insulation on a hot tub can act like a giant cooler! That’s right. If you really want to add bags of ice in your spa, this will help you achieve an even cooler water temperature!
2. Stay Hydrated:
While soaking in a hot tub, your body perspires, which means you are losing fluids. To maintain proper hydration, make sure to keep a bottle or two of water nearby. Sipping water while you soak will not only replenish lost fluids but also help you stay cool and refreshed. It is always important to prioritize your health and well-being, even when indulging in the bliss of your hot tub oasis.
3. Light Refreshments:
Summer and cold beverages go hand in hand! Enhance your hot tub experience by enjoying some light refreshments. Consider placing a small table or floating tray beside your hot tub. Not only will this elevate your relaxation time, but it will also keep you cool and nourished as you bask in the summer sun. Here at DFW Hot Tubs, we carry all kinds of products that can enhance your spa experience.
4. Shade & Sun Protection:
Although the warmth of the Texas sun can be delightful, it is essential to protect yourself from excessive sun exposure. To create a shaded area around your hot tub, consider installing a pergola, a retractable awning, a large umbrella, or using the shade of your environment. Additionally, wearing a hat or applying sunscreen with higher SPF thoroughly and regularly can help protect your skin. Not only will this help shield you from direct sunlight, but it will also allow you to enjoy your hot tub longer.
5. Proper Maintenance & Cleaning:
Regular maintenance is crucial to ensure your hot tub remains in pristine condition throughout the summer.
- Clean the filters.
- Check the water chemistry.
- Sanitize the hot tub regularly to keep the water fresh and free from contaminants.
A well-maintained hot tub will provide you with hours of enjoyment and relaxation this season. Keep in mind that we provide in-house water analysis for free. We offer hot tub service to Dallas, Fort Worth, Plano or anywhere in the DFW metro.
Remember to adjust the temperature, stay hydrated, create shade, and maintain your hot tub regularly. By following these suggestions, you will be well on your way to creating unforgettable hot tub memories this summer.
