Top Myths about a Spa or Hot Tub

Although owning a spa or hot tub is a super luxurious and fun experience, but there are a few common myths about hot tubs… Check out and get enlightened!

I must turn off my spa after use…

Though it is possible to do this, but it is a common myth that you have to turn off your hot tub each time after use. Filtration cycles keep the water clean and in order to uphold temperature to save costs, the flow-thru heater must be on. Many spas come with an ‘Economy’ mode; just push the mode on and save energy!

Spa Chemicals

I must drain my spa after every use just like a bathtub…

Your hot tub is more like a swimming pool that you need not drain after every use. The filtration cycles work in routine and you can add spa chemicals to the spa or the hot tub to maintain hygiene and cleanliness. The spa water does get over saturated with chemicals after a while, so, it is recommended to drain it every three months.

I need to have plumbing lines messing around in my back yard…

It is a great myth! In a portable spa all the plumbing lines and equipment are well fitted under the cabinet and shell. That means you just need a hose to fill your spa each time. And to drain the water just use the pre-fitted gravity drain mode or a submersible pump, if your hot tub does not have any auto options.

I must have more spa jets to have a better spa experience…

Well the key is ‘quality’ and not quantity. Hot tub jets are the top sales feature. You will also be interested in buying a spa with 100 jets more than the one having 40 jets. But, the logic you need to apply is that the number of pumps in the hot tub is the same that implies the power generated is the alike So, power in a spa with a large amount of jets is simply spread more and pressure is less in each jet.

Hope the next time you deal with a spa or the hot tub dealer, these facts no more stay a myth!
