Your Ultimate Home Hot Tub Guide

***Collaborative post***

If you are looking for a hot tub, you will have no doubt done a little bit of digging on the Internet. You will have found an abundance of information, yet the only trouble is that this can be a bit misleading, and this is because there is a lot of myths and false details surrounding hot tubs. Keeping that in mind, in this post we aim to put some of the most common myths to bed. 

Firstly, a lot of people believe that hot tubs are difficult to maintain. They think they are going to have to dedicate a huge amount of time every week to looking after their spa. However, this could not be further from the truth. In fact, it is more likely to take you around five minutes per week. Many individuals also think that hot tubs are expensive to run. However, just like air conditioning, you can find many energy-efficient solutions nowadays. Therefore, this is vital to keep in mind when you are looking for a cheap hot tub. 

One of the most common myths is that the more jets your hot tub has the better it is. Unfortunately, this leads to a lot of people simply counting the number of jets when purchasing a spa. This is a huge mistake to make. There are many different types of jets available nowadays. Therefore, you need to be concerned with their type, quality and orientation. Finally, another myth is that cleaning your spa with bleach is the best approach. However, this can damage your filter and your interior and so should be avoided. 

What You Didn’t Know About Hot Tubs

An increasing number of people are looking for hot tubs for sale, and it is not difficult to see why. After all, there are many benefits to gain, from relaxation, to weight loss, to pain relief… the list is endless. However, in this post we are going to provide you with some interesting information you may not know about hot tubs. 

First and foremost, did you know that the use of hot tubs actually extends back thousands and thousands of years? A lot of people have a tendency to assume that this is a modern luxury, but that is not the case. In fact, in Ancient Japan, Greece, and Egypt they believed in the positive and therapeutic effects of cleansing. Although their ‘hot tubs’ were very different from the ones we know today. A lot of people look to buy a cheap hot tub because of the hydrotherapy benefits associated with them. 

But, did you know you can benefit from various types of therapy aside from hydro-massage? For example, you can relief tension by targeting pressure points on your feet and your hands. Another surprising fact is that the technology found within a hot tub actually originates from agricultural and aviation industries. There is also a common misconception that hot tubs are expensive to run, but there are many energy efficient options available today and so this is no longer the truth. Also, did you know that a spa dealership in Spain holds the world record for squeezing the most people from around the globe into one tub? 26 if you are wondering!

The Most Luxurious Hot Tubs Worldwide

Nowadays, hot tubs are more affordable to the masses than they ever have been. However, this does not stop there from being lavish and expensive options available on the market. Have you ever wondered what the best hot tub in the world is? In this section, we are going to talk you through some of the contenders. 

Firstly, we have the Cal Spas Galaxy GX49 Entertainment Spa, which will set you back more than £20,000. As you may have gathered by the name, the appeal of this hot tub comes from the array of entertainment options that are available, including a 40” plasma, a dedicated sound system, an iPod dock, a SCS player, and a therapy system seat. You have an entertainment room and a spa all in one! Another option is the Luxema, which is available for about £18,000. You will struggle to find a hot tub as extravagant as this one. The Luxema 8000 has its own private bar as well as a generous flat-screen TV and it also stretches over two floors. On the lower partition of the hot tub alone you will find the bar with six seats around it, and this is the smaller section of the Luxema 8000. Last but not least, we have one of the best hot tubs for sale in terms of the jetting system, which is the Villeroy & Boch outdoor whirlpool Just Silence.

Hopefully the horrible cold wintry days are now behind us, and the sunny summer days will fastly be here. With that in mind it has got us thinking about our summer must-have items for this summer. There is nothing we enjoy more than relaxing evenings in the garden after work. Since last summer we have had a garden makeover, we now have a garden that can be enjoyed by us as a family.

Also since last summer I have had to reduce my hours at work due to illness so we are always looking for the latest deals to be had.

We love to entertain and we are known for our parties, especially garden parties. This will be our first summer in our newly revamped garden and are yet to update our garden furniture. This Rattan Corner Sofa has caught our eye, it will be a great way of bringing the comfort of our living room outside with us. A perfect way to enjoy summer in comfort whilst wearing lovely summer dresses.

Seating area

It use to be a great way to sit back and relax whilst swaying in the breeze. Ian use to relax so much he’d fall asleep on it.

Garden maintenance

Back in January we welcomed Coco into our family, our Siberian Husky puppy. Since then we have worn our old pressure washer out keeping our garden clean and tidy. We are now looking for a new pressure washer with additional patio cleaning accessories for making this never-ending task easier and faster.

Summer cooking

Now we have a nice new patio with a canopy over the top, we are now looking at replacing our existing coal BBQ with a gas BBQ so that we can then BBQ in all weathers come rain or shine. This will be a perfect addition when entertaining at our garden parties.
