How to Enjoy Your Hot Tub
- Posted on Nov 10, 2016
Pacific Northwest cities like Beaverton have been getting increasingly colder as we creep further into Fall. Before we know it, Winter will be here bringing the perfect weather for cuddling. Most of you might agree the perfect place to do that is in a hot tub.
Upkeeping Your Hot Tub in Portland, OR
Before doing anything, make sure your hot tub is running in tip-top condition. Make sure your filters are clean and that you stock up on cleaning solutions and fluids so you don’t have to run out at the last minute to get them. Fix any leaking issues your spa might have. If water levels are too low, your pumps and heaters will stop functioning and the water inside the tub will freeze. You can read more about maintaining a hot tub in our guide here. You can also call us for repair services if these issues come up.
Keep Yourself Warm
Winter is arguably the best time to use a hot tub in Vancouver, WA. Being immersed in warm water while it is cold outside provides the warming feeling in the world. Getting into and out of your hot tub is a different story.
Subjecting your skin to the cold after getting out will dry out your face and cause discomfort, discouraging you from making the short but arduous trek to liquid bliss. The fast and easy solution is to apply lotion or face moisturizer before dipping in. This will keep the chemicals from getting into your pores and further drying out your skin. Rework this area. We don’t recommend that people put on moisturizer and such…it can clog filters.
Use your jet and blower conservatively. Using blowers will inject cool air into your spa which lowers the water temperature. Use it only when you need it and make sure it is turned off after you get out of the spa.
Enhance Your Hot Tub Experience
After getting the necessities out of the way, it’s time to enjoy your hot tub to the fullest! So, you’re thinking to yourself, “What will make a hot tub bath even better?” Here are a few ideas:
• Make it a bubble bath
• Serve a warm beverage like hot chocolate
• Play some relaxing music
• Dip in after a workout
