Are you considering buying a jacuzzi hot tub? Are you wondering whether this would be a worthwhile investment? While many people might use their jacuzzi hot tubs for half the year or less and don't make the most of their investment, here are some reasons and ways to keep yours in use all year:
Spring: Spring allergies cause problems for a lot of people. One old home remedy involves sitting with your head over a pot of steaming water to help clear out your sinuses. Instead of sitting in this uncomfortable position, you could be relaxing in a jacuzzi hot tub. The steam may help you find relief from your seasonal allergies while the warm and bubbling water is sure to help relax your whole body and help you forget about your allergy problems. Unfortunately, some people may recommend against using your hot tub in the spring because of the potential for spring storms to blow debris into the water. While this could potentially be a problem, using a snug-fitting cover on your hot tub when it's not in use will eliminate the issue almost entirely.
Summer: People often avoid a jacuzzi hot tub in the summer, because of high temperatures. But a hot tub can be just as relaxing in the summer as any other month. It can be especially helpful in the evening, after a long day of yard work. After spending most of the day mowing the lawn, pulling weeds, or doing other landscaping chores, spending time in your jacuzzi hot tub can be a great way to relieve aches and pains. In order to keep your hot tub from evaporating too quickly, make sure to replace its cover when not in use. If it was set up in an area that receives a lot of sun in the summer, you might want to consider installing either a permanent gazebo or a temporary awning over the hot tub.
Autumn: As the weather starts to get cooler, you may find yourself using your hot tub more and more. The manufacturer may recommend that you drain and winterize your hot tub at this time, before winter sets in. This is, indeed, a good time to clean your hot tub and perform any maintenance recommended in your owner's manual. But instead of leaving the hot tub dry and empty, immediately refill it for winter use.
Winter: If you have arthritis that is aggravated by the cold, soaking in your jacuzzi hot tub at this time may prove to be especially invigorating. You may also find it helpful in relieving mild cold symptoms, similar to the allergy relief you could experience in the spring. If you live in an area that receives heavy snow, make sure that your jacuzzi hot tub is installed on a completely enclosed or partially enclosed porch for easy access. An insulated cover can be helpful for keeping the hot tub warm when you're not using it, especially when the temperatures outside are very low.
