Spas and hot tubs

Spas and Hot tubs

Who would not want to be on hot tubs and spas when you are chilling and wanting to take a bath? Who does not want to stay in warm water after a hard day’s work? Who would not want to be refreshed after a tiring workout? You cannot blame yourself from wanting to be on hot tubs or spas especially during cold days because you want to stay on your normal temperature to keep you out from sickness. You just cannot imagine all the benefits a leisure bath can give you.

This is one of the most refreshing ways to be healthy. While you are enjoying yourself with a hot bath, you can also benefit a lot from it. Not everyone knows that hot tubs and spas can help you have an excellent blood circulation. Having a hot temperature makes your blood flow better because it does not clot your blood and it makes your heart pump blood normally despite the cold environment. This is a very nice way to be free from poor blood flow which can result to an unsteady blood circulation resulting to a lot of negative things like hypothermia, numbness of your body parts and chilling.

It does not only make you healthy inside, it also keeps your skin healthy and soft. This is the reason why we cannot blame women wanting to bathe in hot tubs or be in spas just to rejuvenate, as well as men. We all know that our skin is one of our physical assets and if ever you do not mind, just think of reflecting how healthy you are through your skin. It does not only give you a refreshing feeling but it also removes the tiresome feeling you are experiencing from a strenuous work or exercise. Just make sure you will not jump into hot tubs and spas if you are still having a very fast heart beat, to avoid heart contractions.

Hot tub and spa makers surely benefited from their own products too. I doubt that these makers did this just for the sake of making money. They also made these products to save them from the cold weather, sickness and for a new way to get refreshed but in a healthy way. It is a good thing that these things were made for us to be more comfortable, to be healthier even if we work so hard and to be fit at all times.

Having hot tubs and spas for your homes may sound so costly but the benefits they can give you is priceless. Good health and refreshment are the top two benefits you can get from hot tubs and spas. You may go to such spa clinics just to experience it, but has it ever gone into your minds summing up the expenses you have made from going there all the time instead of having one for your home? Just think about it and maybe you will realize the great benefits these things could give you and the expenses you can save by having it.

Hot tubs and spas are becoming increasingly more popular and they are to be found in many homes. When you mention hot tubs and spas, what springs to most people’s minds is an above ground acrylic spa. The acrylic spa is the most popular one on the market as it is quite large and can accommodate up to ten people. Acrylic spas are self contained units that require a 220 volt power supply and they usually need a concrete pad for support. Acrylic tubs are not easy to install, although they have a fairly long life and come with an extended warranty. The acrylic spa is difficult to uninstall and may require professional expertise if it is to be done properly.

Probably the least expensive type of spa is an inflatable one. These tubs are usually made to accommodate two to four people and are made from plastic or vinyl. This type of pool is meant to be portable and so they are quite easy to install. If you don’t have a lot of room to spare than this type of spa is ideal it plugs into a standard 110 volt outlet and can be used outside or inside.

Although portable, plastic spas are a good start they are not that durable so will not stand up to a lot of use. If you want something a bit more permanent then a wooden hot tub is a better buy. The wooden tub looks a bit like an oversized wine barrel and needs a permanent platform to stand on. The wooden spa is heated by fire, is better outside and needs a fair bit of maintenance to keep it in good working order.

The in ground spa is actually a spa/tub combination and can be quite expensive. This type of spa is designed to hold as many as sixteen people although there are smaller sized spas. If you decide to have this type of spa/hot tub then you will have to have it professionally installed, as it involves a fair bit of construction work as well as the plumbing and electrical skills needed. You may need to get planning permission to have an in ground spa.The water in a ground spa is heated from a separate electrical or gas unit. Once you have an in ground spa it is very difficult if you want to move it somewhere else.

Whatever type of hot tub or spa you decide on will depend on how much space you have to spare, how much you can afford, and whether you want it just for your own use or whether it will be used for parties etc. You may also need to consider the maintenance and running costs when you are thinking about the kind of spa that you want installed. If you are having yours installed for health reasons then you will want something that is big enough to allow for movement and exercise.


For centuries, people have soaked in hot water to help them feel better, relieve pain, and get rid of stress. Today, hot tubs provide the perfect place to relax in hot water while experiencing soothing jets and family bonding time.
However, If you’re a new hot tub owner, you may not know what temperature your hot tub should be.
So, how hot are hot tubs? Hot tub temperatures range anywhere from 90-104 degrees Fahrenheit.
Depending on your preference, your age, and your health, you should keep your hot tub at a different temperature within that range.

Learn the best hot tub temperatures for each situation below.

The Ideal Hot Tub Temperature for Relaxing
Most hot tub users find that the perfect temperature is between 100-102 degrees Fahrenheit. However, some like the water to be body temperature at 98 degrees, and some like it hotter–up to 104 degrees.

Test out a few temperatures and see what you like best. Nothing is better than finding that “just right” feeling in a hot tub.

It’s also common for hot tub owners to change the spa temperature depending on the time of the year. Below are how some examples for winter and summer.

Hot tub temperature in winter
Although definitely not a requirement, many spa owners like to increase the temperature during cold winter months.

Hot tub temperature in summer

If you live in an extra hot climate, consider dropping the temperature a bit during the summer and see what you think. Keeping your spa temperature below 98 degrees can be refreshing while still providing the warm water that makes you feel so relaxed.

Safe Hot Tub Temperature

It’s important to stay safe while enjoying the benefits of a hot tub.The CPSC advises to never exceed 104 degrees in your hot tub. Temperatures of 106 degrees or higher can potentially lead to heat stroke.

For your safety, Enciso’s Pool Construction will not allow you to set a temperature above 104 degrees.

Keep in mind that your age and health can also change the safe temperature zone. Here are a few factors to consider:

For kids

If kids will be using the hot tub, the recommended temperature is around 95 degrees or less so they don’t overheat. And don’t let children stay in the spa for more than 15 minutes at a time.
