Hot tub ownership can certainly represent a certain status symbol – the envy of the neighbors. But there is much more to it than that.
From a social gathering place or a time to connect with family and friends, to the many health related benefits that aqua-massage provides, a hot tub is more than a luxury item.
In fact the old days of paying sky-high prices for a jacuzzi are gone with many internet vendors selling spas at more reasonable prices. Some manufacturers have joined the online communities and opened their own e-commerce stores where factory spas are offered at deep discounts directly to the public.
There is a difference between buying a “factory direct hot tub” directly from the manufacturer or through an online reseller. The manufacturer supports their spas directly and has factory trained support technicians on staff who know their particular brand very well. The online retailer may represent several brands and only have a passing knowledge of the items they actually sell. In many cases the factory support staff is available no matter where the spa was actually purchased, so dealing with a spa brand where the manufacturer has been in business for a long time is a better assurance the company will be around to take care of any issues that may arise.
Feeling comfortable with a spa brand that has been on the market for decades, the enjoyment can begin. There are water exercises, recommended massage session lengths, ideal temperatures depending on who is using the spa and an assortment of tips as well as accessories to make hot tub use more enjoyable so it will be visited more often, whatever the season.
Remember the time at the ski resort, sitting in the jacuzzi and breathing the crisp winter air while soaking in a hot tub. This is the same feeling that hot tub owners enjoy in the comfort of their own backyards or patios.
So hot tubs aren’t just for fun, but for connection, invigoration, healing and bonding. Enjoy your hot tub spa!
