  • How to Use a Hot Tub to Get Back Pain Relief

    Chronic back pain

    According to the National Institutes of Health, back pain is the most common cause of missed work days and disability claims. Physical therapy, medication, and even ultrasound therapy treatments are often prescribed to back pain sufferers, but one of the oldest, most effective and inexpensive ways to alleviate back pain remains this: taking a hot bath.

    How Hot Tubs Help Relieve Back Pain

    Heating pads and hot packs are a great way to treat muscle pain, but a better way is to take a hot bath, and an even better way is to sit in a hot tub.

    Heat does some pretty great things for back pain sufferers:

    • It relaxes muscles, thereby reducing muscle spasms.
    • It dilates blood vessels, which increases blood flow and promotes healing.
    • It alters pain sensation.

    Sitting in  a hot tub adds some additional relief:

    • It causes the body to release endorphins.
    • It promotes restorative sleep.

    Hot tubs are so good at relieving back pain that in some states will eliminate sales tax on hot tub purchases made with a doctor's note.

    Choosing the Right Hot Tub for Your Back Pain

    When shopping for a hot tub to alleviate your back pain, you want to pay close attention to the following features:

    • Jets -- It is important that the jets be positionable, so you can focus them on the areas experiencing pain. There are different types of jets: massage jets that oscillate and whirlpool jets that concentrate the stream of water. Some manufacturers will customize the type and position of the jets based on your needs.
    • Shape of the hot tub shell -- Look for models that have lounge-style seats so you can choose to sit up or lay back depending on your comfort needs. Also look for models where you can fully immerse yourself.

    We carry many hot tub models with lounge seat options. Check them out!

    Ways to Use Your Hot Tub for Back Pain Relief

    Simply sitting and soaking in a hot tub will provide a lot of relief, but there are other things you can do with/in your hot tub to help soothe your aching back:

    • Bring a tennis ball into the tub with you. Trap it between your body and the tub to apply rubbing pressure to your muscles.
    • Do stretching exercises. The heat softens up your muscles and makes stretching easier and more effective.

    Some Precautions to Consider

    As with anything, there are some precautions to take when you use a hot tub to relieve your back pain:

    • Don't turn it up too hot. Temperatures that are too high can exhaust your muscles and create a sense of exhaustion, which is not the same as relaxation. Also, while your muscles may feel limp, high temperatures actually rev up your nervous system. The water should be pleasantly warm, but not hot. If you are pregnant, hot tubs should be kept barely above body temperature.
    • Do not use heat to treat a fresh injury. If your skin (pre-hot tub) is hot and red or swollen, do not heat the area. You could make the injury worse. Ice is for injuries. Heat is better used for muscle soreness and pain. If you are unsure whether or not to appy ice or heat, see your doctor for advice.
    • And while we are on the topic of doctors, it's a good idea not to use a hot tub for any medical condition without first talking to your doctor. Definitely do not use a hot tub if you are using medications that cause drowsiness.
    • Never exceed the time limit or temperature limit recommended by the hot tub manufacturer.

  • 10 Tips for Hosting a Hot Tub Party

    10 Tips for Hosting a Hot Tub Party

    As summer winds down, it might be just the time to host a hot tub party! Here are 10 tips for hosting a great farewell-to-summer hot tub party:

    1. Keep it Clean --  The hot tub, that is. Make sure the tub is clean inside and out: fill it with fresh water, clean out the filters, wipe down the exterior, and pick up the space surrounding the tub. Everyone will have a much better time in a tidy space.

    2. Turn it Up -- Many hot tubs have built-in speakers and will connect to various music devices. Take advantage of these features by creating a killer playlist that sets the mood of the party. You can even use the music to control the tempo of the party: start with upbeat, high energy songs and end with slower, mellower tunes to wind down the night. Don't have audio features on your tub? No problem! Set up a stereo a safe distance from the hot tub. Keep the volume loud enough that everyone can hear it, but no one has to yell to talk over it. Be courteous of your neighbors, too: turn the music down or off when it gets late, or invite them over too!

    Check out the hot tub models we carry that have stereo options!

    3. Feed Them -- Warm water naturally suppresses the appetite, so avoid serving up a meal and focus on snacks. Also, you want to keep food out of the water and make it easy for guests to nibble. That means avoiding food that crumble or drip and anything that might leave a residue on fingers that will transfer to the water. Avoid chips, greasy foods, cookies, soups, and so on. Try finger foods or foods on skewers/toothpicks and foods that can be eaten in one bite, such as a vegetable platter with hummus or dip, cut up fruit, kebabs, cubed cheeses and meats.

    4. Hydrate Them -- The warmth of the tub will make your guests thirsty, so be sure to have plenty of cold drinks on hand. Invest in a good cooler to keep near the tub so you don't have to run in and out of the house to grab drinks. Fill it with plenty of ice and stock it with water and juices. You could also make up pitchers of lemonade and iced tea. Here's a tasty recipe that's sure to please everyone:

    Ginger Lemonade

    1-inch piece of ginger
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup water
    8-10 large lemons
    3 1/2 cups water or sparkling water

    Using the handle of a heavy knife or a tenderizer, mash the ginger a little bit. Set in pan with 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar. Cook on low heat until sugar dissolves and ginger is aromatic. Remove from heat and let cool. Juice 8-10 large lemons. Put lemon juice and ginger syrup in a pitcher and add 3 1/2 cups of water or sparkling water. Chill and enjoy!

    Whatever you choose to serve for drinks, avoid alcoholic beverages. Hot water makes the effects of alcohol felt much more quickly and is a surefire way to give everyone a hangover the next day.

    5. Prepare for Weather and Environment -- If it might rain, or if you plan on having everyone over in the heat of the day, invest in a nice umbrella to cover the pool so your guests stay dry/shaded. Is it going to be cold? Set up outdoor heaters to keep everyone comfortable when they are hanging out outside the tub. Going into the cool of the night? Provide robes for people when they are taking a break from soaking. Looks like it might storm? If there is even a remote chance of lightening, abandon the hot tub and move the party indoors.

    6. Play Games -- Hot tubs are a great place for jokes and conversation, but they can also be a great place for toys and games. Pick up a deck of waterproof playing cards, or some rubber duckies for hot tub races. Have a supply of squirt guns on hand (be careful about squirting hot water at each other's faces, though!). Don't use pool toys, though--they aren't designed for the hot water.

    7. Set the Example -- Guests usually look to the host to provide the energy and mood of the party. Be sure to prepare everything before the party so you can relax and hang out with your guests. The more fun you have, the more fun they'll have!

    8. Suit Up -- It's a good idea to have some swimming suits on hand for guests who forget to bring one. Watch for end-of-season sales to get good deals.

    9. There's No Such Thing as Too Many Towels -- Gets lots of towels. Lots and lots. Have them set out next to the tub so guests can grab one easily when they exit the pool. Consider getting different colors and patterns so people can keep track of their towel more easily. Be prepared for guests to use multiple towels.

    10. Plan Fun for Everyone -- You might have a guest or two that doesn't want to get in the tub, or who tires of the tub earlier than everyone else. You'll want to make sure these people have plenty to do. Maybe set up a badminton net or set out some board games. Invest in a tub-side counter and stools so guests outside the tub can still interact with guests inside the tub. We have many to choose from in our inventory, like this redwood table and these stools.

  • Insomnia: Get a Good Night's Sleep with Your Hot Tub

    hot tubs insomnia photo by rachel CALAMUSA via Wikipedia

    Insomnia is a Widespread Problem

    The National Sleep Foundation found that somewhere around 132 million people in America suffer from sleep disorders, ranging from mild to chronic insomnia, snoring, and pauses in breathing.

    Inadequate amounts of sleep can have profound health effects, including erratic mood swings, anxiety, depression, grogginess, and memory lapses. It's pretty clear that sleeping well can help keep you healthy, to speak nothing about keeping you safe from fatigue-related accidents.

    Soak to Sleep!

    One proven method for getting to sleep is simply soaking in a warm bath or--even better--a hot tub. The buoyancy of the water and the jets can help massage and relax tense muscles, contributing to overall relaxation. However, the heated water also contributes to promoting good sleep. According to some studies, a drop in your body's temperature helps to ease the body into a relaxing sleep. It may seem counter-intuitive, then, to sit in a tub of hot water. Here's how it works: soaking in a hot tub will raise your body's core temperature. When you exit the tub, your body will cool down, and that decline in temperature is what triggers restful sleep.

    How to Maximize Your Soak for the Best Sleep

    To fight insomnia, soak in your hot tub for at least 15-20 minutes about 2 hours before you go to bed. For best results, avoid caffeine and exercise during this time period as well.

  • Hot Tub vs Spa vs Jacuzzi

    You might hear the words "hot tub", "spa", and "Jacuzzi" used interchangeably, but are there actual differences between the words?

    While researching this article, we found that there is some disagreement--even among industry professionals--about what these different words mean and when they should be used. However, you can use the information below as a rough guide.

    Hot Tubs

    hot tub vs spa vs jacuzzi photo by Wood and Wellness Ermelo via Flickr

    "Hot tub" is probably the word you will hear used most often, as it is the most generic of the three terms. At its most basic definition, it could be used to mean any hot bath or basic of water. More specifically, however, it is used to describe tubs made of wood, sometimes with a liner set inside, often with wood-burning stoves or some other form of heating. They can sometimes offer jets, but often don't, and they typically don't have contoured seating. This is the original style of tub, and they traditionally resembled large wooden barrels full of hot water. Hot tubs have a long history, but most recently became very popular in private homes in the 1960s.

    Spas

    hot tub vs spa vs jacuzzi

     

    The word "spa" basically describes a hot tub that is equipped with jets. Most are made out of fiberglass or acrylic. The term "spa" was first used in 1596 to describe the Harrogate, an enclosed well that contained medicinal water built by William Slingsby. Slingsby had visited a Belgium town called Spa, which was--and still is--renowned for its healing cold springs. When the hot tub industry began building tubs out of fiberglass and acrylic, they co-opted the word "spa" as a nod to the Belgian town and lend an air of elegance and luxury to this new product.

    Jacuzzis

    Strictly speaking, "Jacuzzi" is the brand name of a company that manufactures spas, and the word should always be capitalized. In 1968, Candido Jacuzzi invented a self-contained whirlpool bath for his young son, who was born with rheumatoid arthritis. It was an instant success and within a few decades the company name became nearly synonymous with the invention itself.

    So Which One Should You Use?

    Colloquially, the three terms are interchangeable. Alternatively, you could use the phrase "hot tub spas" as a good catch-all for any unit that holds and/or heats water and may or may not be equipped with jets.

  • Thanksgiving in the Hot Tub

    With the holidays kicking off this week, it's the perfect time to take the cover off the hot tub and plan family gatherings around warm, bubbly water. Below you'll find some tips and advice on how to make your hot tub a fun part of your Thanksgiving.

    We are Thankful for Lounge Seats and 28 Stainless Steel Jets

    Get the tub warmed up as your guests start to arrive. Invite people to soak while they wait for the turkey to cook, and to soak while the turkey digests happily in their bellies. It's a great way to distract the kids and placate the teenagers. Something about a hot tub really brings a family together, and might even help prevent those awkward holiday arguments. Here are some ideas for making the tub a big part of Thanksgiving dinner:

    • To encourage guests to use the tub, have them bring their suits and towels.
    • Pick up hot tub accessories like this towel table and stools so there's a place to put towels and drinks and other guests and hang out and visit with the soakers.
    • A small table nearby is a good place to set plates so food stays out of the tub.
    • Consider adding some spa steps with handrails, so grandma and grandpa can get in and out of the tub easily.

    Don't Get into Hot Water While in the Hot Water

    As always, you'll need to take precautions while the tub is in use to make sure everyone stays safe. A few things to keep an eye on:

    • A sober adult should always be monitoring the tub if there are children or pets in the home. It can be easy to get distracted by Auntie Amy's crazy stories, but it can only take a second for a child or pet to fall into the tub and get into trouble. Consider assigning non-drinking guests as hot tub monitors in half-hour increments.
    • Disallow drinks and food in the tub. In addition to getting the water gross, spilled food and drinks can be a safety hazard and can damage the hot tub's system. Encourage guests to use nearby tables and benches and to exit the tub to eat and drink.
    • Prevent guests from drinking heavily and then using the tub, as they could pass out and injure themselves and others.
    • Eating a big meal can make people drowsy. Throw in a little wine and you have a recipe for a satisfying nap. Keep an eye on the tub after dinner and get sleepy soakers out and onto the couch instead to prevent accidental drowning.

    Happy Thanksgiving, to All of Our Super Soakers!

    From all of us here at spasandstuff.com, Happy Thanksgiving! We hope your holiday is full of good food, good company, and good soaking.

  • Hot Tub Anatomy

    Hot Tub Anatomy

    Most hot tubs come with a set of standard features, but if you are new to hot tubs you may not know what those features are or what they are for. Hot tub anatomy is pretty simple. Below, we've listed and described different parts of the hot tub. Once you are familiar with these, you can better understand what it is you are looking for when shopping for a tub, or you can make better use of your existing tub.

    Popular Features

    Jets

    Jets are what set hot tubs apart from bathtubs and swimming pools. They truly make the hot tub a hot tub. Jets channel and propel water to soothe muscles, such as in the neck or lower back. Hot tubs come with their jets positioned in a variety of ways depending on the manufacturer and the model of the tub. With jets, more isn't necessarily better. Consider jet placement and your own preferences. There are also different types of jets. Some tubs, such as the Alpine Portable Inflatable, has air-only jets. Other tubs, such as this BellaGrande, has hydrotherapy jets. If you can, test drive a few different types of tubs until you get a feel for what you like.

    Size

    A range of tub sizes exists on the market today, from two-person tubs like this Oval Airispa to 9-person tubs like the BellaMassimo SL. As you might have guessed, the bigger the tub the higher the cost. Maintenance costs, as well, will be higher on bigger tubs. Determine how many people will usually be using the hot tub to decide how big a tub to buy. Consider whether you host parties or have friends over to also use the tub. Remember, a larger size doesn't always mean it can accommodate more people: this Swim Spa is 16 feet long, but only designed for 3 people at a time.

    Seating

    Related to the size of the tub is the number and arrangement of seats within the tub. Some tubs come with a simple plastic bench to sit on, while others offer bucket or lounge-style seating like this Paradise tub. Tubs like the Spa2Go don't technically have any seating at all; the bottom is cushioned to provide what is called "open seating". Others, like this BellaGrande, have a dual-end lounger. The size of the tub will limit the amount and type of seats it has. Again, it is worth trying out different types of tubs to determine what you'll like and use most.

    Cabinet

    The cabinet is the exterior of the hot tub. Portable and inflatable tubs don't have a cabinet. Nor do in-ground, permanent tubs. Your typical hot tub does, however, and the cabinet can be made in a variety of materials, from a plastic veneer to a wood finish. Many models allow you to select a color and style of cabinet to suit your home. For example, this Utopia model has a synthetic cabinet available in Espresso or Coastal Grey. Other models may have more choices available.

    Shell

    The shell is the interior of the tub that holds the water. Just like the cabinet, the shell can be made from many materials from plastic to granite to marble. What you select is based on your budget and the model of the tub. Acrylic is by far the most common material for a shell, as it is affordable and can be offered in a variety of colors. The Free Spirit Lounger, for example, has an acrylic shell with six color choices.

    Working Parts

    All hot tubs come with a number of parts that allow them to operate properly. Some of these parts include the pump motor, heater, insulation, and filter. The portable and inflatable tubs tend to have fewer working parts, and the larger and more permanent tubs tend to have more. You will want to consider the warranty on your tub's working parts. Keep in mind that the higher the quality of the tub's water heater, and the more insulation used, the more likely your tub is to maintain a constant temperature. Additionally, consider how much energy the tub will use while in operation--some manufacturers offer especially energy-efficient parts or models. To get a good idea of the different parts and what they do, check out this super cool interactive spa simulator.

    Covers

    A cover is essential to keep the water in your hot tub clean and chemically balanced. Most distributors include a cover with the tub. However, there is sometimes an additional charge for one. If you have young children or pets who live in or visit your home, a hot tub cover should be considered as a required safety feature.

    Bells and Whistles

    The above features are all considered "standard" and, to varying degrees, essential. For the more adventurous buyer, however, there are additional features that can be included with any hot tub purchase.

    Built-in stereo and speakers

    With a built-in stereo and speakers, you do not have to worry about toting a stereo back and forth or wiring outdoor speakers. A built-in stereo is also designed for use with water, so it is much safer than providing your own stereo. Tubs like the Free Spirit Lounger come with optional stereos housed in the cabinet for safety and convenience.

    Built-in television

    Some tub models have a television that can retract into the tub's wall when not in use. These models usually also include a stereo and speakers and are often available with floating, waterproof remotes. As with the stereo, a built-in television is much safer than rigging up something on your own, as it is designed for use in the water. Tubs like the BellaGrande SLT come with a television, stereo, speakers, and dvd player. It can also access cable and satellite television.

    Illuminated waterfall

    This luxury feature provides tranquil sounds and lights as part of your hot tub experience. The BellaGrande SLT linked above is one such tub that offers this decadent feature.

    Whether you prefer a minimalist tub experience or want all the bells and whistles, make sure you choose a tub that best suits your preferences and budget. We're always available via email or phone if you need any help selecting a hot tub model. Happy soaking!

  • Affordable Luxury: Easier Than You Think

    Affordable Luxury: Easier Than You Think

    Everyone wants to enjoy the finer things in life, but the average consumer may not consider herself able to do so. The truth is that with a good budget and smart financial planning many people can afford to treat themselves to luxury goods and experiences.

    A Tub Full of Affordable Luxury

    Hot tubs are more affordable than most people realize and making monthly payments on one is easier than one would think. Hot tubs can be as much as $15,000 or as little as $665. Money spent on pool or health club memberships can easily be re-directed to saving for a hot tub or making payments on a loan or a hot tub payment plan. Additionally, by adding a hot tub to your home, you increase the value of your property and save money on gas and time spent going to a gym or spa to use their hot tub.

    Once the tub is in your home, maintenance on it is just dollars a month. You will only need to buy a few chemicals and measure the water quality on a regular basis. It's easy to learn, easy to do, and costs very little.

    Smart Saving Solutions

    Here are some areas where you can find extra money to set aside for a hot tub:

    • Pack lunch instead of buying lunch.
    • Make coffee in the morning and use a thermos instead of spending on expensive coffee.
    • Cancel your gym membership and go running outside, climb stairs at a local parking garage, go hiking, bike to work, etc.
    • Shop at thrift stores or consignment stores for brand name garments at cheaper prices.
    • Skip going out for dinner and make healthy meals at home instead.
    • Cancel magazine subscriptions and visit the library to catch up on new issues.
    • Cancel streaming movie services and check out movies from the local library instead.
    • Get crafty and make gifts for people instead of purchasing them. Consider gifting home-cooked sweets, knitted scarves, re-purposed frames, or even gifting your time to help out parents who need a night out away from their kids or a friend who needs a dog sitter. Or, gift a skill you have, like making websites, repainting a room, a teaching a friend how to play guitar.
    • Skip the vacation and explore your home area for places and activities you've never done before.

  • Where to Put It? Tips on Where to Install Your Hot Tub

    Where to Put It? Tips on Where to Install Your Hot Tub

    PLAN AHEAD FOR STRENGTH AND SAFETY

    Wherever you decide to place your hot tub, you need to make sure that the location has a solid foundation. The foundation must be uniformly firm and provide a level setting. The recommended foundation is a concrete pad with a minimum thickness of 4 inches with steel-reinforced cross bars throughout.

    When installing your spa on a wood deck or balcony, the same load requirements must be met. The total load may be as much as 90 pounds per square foot. Remember that your tub weighs about 700 pounds on its own. After you add water and people, it could have a total weight of up to 4,000 pounds.

    Regardless of the location that you decide on, you need to be sure that the hot tub is not within 10 feet of overhead power lines and that you leave access to the internal equipment.

    In order to perform maintenance or make a needed repair, you will need adequate space to reach the internal components. If your tub has external equipment, you need to know that most city codes require the equipment to be at least 5 feet from the tub unless they are separated by a permanent solid barrier.

    CONSIDERATIONS FOR INDOOR PLACEMENT

    If you decide to place your hot tub indoors, you need to understand that moisture will accumulate. The steam created by the tub must go somewhere, and it will leave moisture on your walls, ceiling, floor, etc. You need to make sure that you have really good ventilation. The amount of moisture will vary according to how frequently you use the tub.

    Ventilation not only helps dissipate the moisture and steam, but it also allows the hot tub chemicals to be circulated out. The odor of the cleaning components can accumulate indoors and even create electrical problem unless the area is well ventilated. The good news is that if you place your hot tub indoors, it will probably stay cleaner and require less frequent chemical treatments.

    Big tip on installing a hot tub indoors: you should have some kind of drainage system in place! Experts recommend you change the water in your tub every four months or so. You always have the option of running sewage drains to your hot tub, and if you are placing your hot tub on an existing slab you will need to dig up the concrete to build your drain system.

    Another option that is a little less of a hassle would be to get a small submersible pump. You can use the pump to push most of the water out of the tub, but pumps usually fail to move the last inch or so of water at the bottom of the tub.

    Some manufacturers build their hot tubs with a water hose connection inside of the cabinet at the bottom of the hot tub. This will enable you to hook a water hose to your hot tub so that you can easily drain the water and move it to another drain or outside on the ground.

    ADDITIONAL TIPS

    No matter how well made your hot tub is, it is always possible that after years of usage leaks will occur due to worn gaskets or seals. That water must have a place to go. Be prepared to deal with this if the situation arises.

    Another thing to consider is that you have to get the hot tub into your house. Measure to make sure that you have enough room to get it into your house and then measure again. After you do that, measure once more!

    Many companies suggest that you spend the money to have a licensed contractor make sure that the local building codes and load requirements can be met.

    OUTDOORS AND UNDER THE STARS

    For many people, outdoors is the best location for a hot tub. Outdoors, there are fewer concerns for the tub. You do not have to worry about the steam and humidity or the chemicals affecting your home. Locating your tub outdoors, though, does mean that you may have to get a concrete pad laid down so that it has a proper foundation.

    Outside it will get dirtier more easily. Walking to and from the tub, your feet will get dirty and that will get in the water. Leaves and such may end up in your new hot tub.

    A cover is very important when placing a tub anywhere, but it is especially important when placing it outdoors. Always have a cover on the tub when you are not in it. This is a safety measure to prevent small children from falling into it and it also helps it to stay cleaner. The cleaner the water stays, the less frequently you have to treat the water with chemicals.

    There are a wide variety of pictures of hot tubs on the Internet being placed outdoors in very creative ways. If you want to invest the money, a stand-alone deck can be built that encompasses the tub. The only limit here is your imagination and your budget.

    PLACING YOUR HOT TUB IN A SCREENED-IN ROOM

    Putting a hot tub in a screened-in porch mostly resembles an outdoor installation. You have to consider some of the factors that go with both indoor and outdoor installations, though. A screened-in porch will obviously allow for ventilation and the steam and humidity will not harm your walls. You will still need a drain put into the floor of the porch if one does not already exist. If the manufacturer uses the water hose connection, this will not be an issue for you.

    Again, you can find many creative pictures of hot tubs installed in screened porches on the Internet.

    IN CONCLUSION

    In the end, the placement of your new hot tub is completely up to you and your preferences. No matter where you decide to put it, be sure to plan ahead. The more you plan ahead, the easier it will be to install and to enjoy.

    If you are not sure whether or not your chosen location is suitable, you should seriously consider contacting a licensed contractor.

    Finally, always take into account safety factors when deciding where to put your hot tub. As stated before, a cover should always be in place when it is not in use. Also consider the surface that you will be walking on when going to and from the hot tub. If the path is smooth concrete you may want to put some mats down to prevent slipping.
