The joy of relaxing in your outdoor hot tub doesn’t have to end when the temperature drops. You may not be able to enjoy your hot tub on a warm summer’s night anymore, but keeping it covered, heated, and ready to go can provide you with a cozy place to warm up on quiet, crisp evenings all winter long.
Benefits of an Outdoor Hot Tub
Using an outdoor hot tub in the winter isn’t just about keeping the winter blues at bay. Keeping your hot tub heated in the winter enables you to enjoy sweeping winter landscapes from outside while staying warm. A hot tub also adds a bit of glamor and expands the family gathering party space to the outdoors. Come back to an inviting hot tub from a long day at the slopes and relax while the jets work their magic on your sore muscles. Hydrotherapy helps reduce stress and is great for the body and mind!
Get the Most Out of Your Hot Tub
Taking advantage of the benefits of using an outdoor hot tub in the winter means being prepared for the cold months. We’ve come up with several tips to help you get the most out of your hot tub in the winter.
Cover Up. Invest in a good quality cover that fits tightly and will keep the heat and water inside. Water can evaporate more quickly during the winter months, and a good cover should provide a tight seal to prevent evaporation from occurring. It should also be insulated correctly to prevent heat from escaping.
Water Levels. Keep a close eye on the water level of your hot tub. Because of the increase of water evaporation in the winter, it’s easy to let the level drop too low. If the water line falls below the skimmer, the water won’t be able to circulate and the hot tub won’t have an evenly maintained water temperature. It’s a good idea to set reminders to ensure this doesn’t happen.
Soak Times. Just like in the summer, you shouldn’t spend too much time in a hot tub. 20 minutes is the perfect time to relax in a hot tub and let the stress slip away.
Drink Up. With the added warmth to your body, you’ll want to make sure you stay hydrated to compensate. Grab a water bottle for all hot tub participants and keep sipping.
