Modern molded plastic hot tubs are comfortable and come in a variety of hues that can withstand any climate and home decor, replacing the older wooden hot tub spas of the 1960’s. Hot tubs do in fact require structural support and access to electrical power, are now featured with jets that produce soothing pressure on sore muscles, lounge style chairs, cup holders, color changing lights, foam neck supports, built in radio and waterproof speakers and more.
The hot tub area is normally located in a more private location on a person’s residential property. This includes secluded backyards, patios or enclosed deck areas. This area becomes a frequent social gathering place for families and friends if you take care of your hot tub spa consistently and correctly.
Hot tubs also serve as ultimate stress reducing personal retreats – right at your home. The hot tub’s mineral waters are therapeutic and the jets offer sore muscles a release in tension of your everyday aches and pains. Hot tubs are also an excellent complement to a pool. You know, pool for summer and hot tub for winter! Visit our pool page for more information.
The hot tub and spa market has moved almost entirely to what’s called a free-standing spa. These hot tub product units are all self-contained with the tub vessel, motors, heaters, and filters all in one inclosed unit. This allows hot tub spas to be UL approved.
