Summer-Time Hot Tubbing

Summer-Time Hot Tubbing

Posted by TT on Aug 6th 2020

A 102 degree hot tub may not sound appealing when the outside summer temperatures hit scorching 90+ days. But you can still enjoy the therapeutic waters and pulsating jets of your hot tub, even in the summer heat. Yes, even in the summer heat!

Cool Water Instead of Hot Water

Try turning the temperature down to 95 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. Honestly, anything lower than your average body temperature will feel relaxing, even during the hottest days. 

Furthermore, if you really want to cool down and transform your hot tub into a “cool tub” turn the temperature down to 85 degrees or lower. 

As a side note, make sure to keep your spa cover on when it’s not in use so your hot tub won’t absorb the sun’s heat.

Try Hot Tubbing At Night

It’s worth pointing out that once the sizzling sun has set, you can also enjoy your soak without worrying about the harmful sun rays.

Thankfully, temperatures tend to be cooler as well. In fact, you can create your own ambiance by using lights and an indulgent aromatherapy spa salt

We carry a fantastic line of delicious scents that we think you’ll love; even a sample pack.

Clean and Drain Your Spa

Another key point is that the start of your summer season is also the perfect time to drain and refill your hot tub. Furthermore, if you use Waters Choice Enzymes (and we certainly hope you do) you’ll only need to drain and re-fill ONCE A YEAR rather than four or more times a year. 

When it’s time to do this, use our proprietary Waters Choice Clean & Drain to purge the hot tub plumbing and keep your spa lines clear.

Skin Protection

It’s important to realize that water attracts the sunlight. Make sure to give yourself protection by adding shade to your hot tub.

We suggest an umbrella or sun shade. Notably, you can also wear sunscreen but that adds oil to your water. 

In that case however, if you use Waters Choice Ultra Natural Sanitation System, our unique blend of enzymes will take care of the oils in your water and you won’t have to worry.

One more thing, you’ll want to stay hydrated while in the hot sun. It’s a great idea to keep a water bottle by the spa and drink frequently while soaking. 

By all means,it's also a great idea to drink plenty of fresh, cold water BEFORE you take your soak, it'll   help as well.
