Hot Tub Spa
Hot tubs are known for their "barrel" shape and the wooden or wood-like straps that make up the walls of the tub.
tubs are watertight containers designed to hold 300 to 1000 gallons of
water and 1-12 people. Hot tubs may be round, oval or rectangular, with
straight or slanted sides. Hot tubs rely on support equipment to keep
the water hot and clean. Hot tubs have a heater, pump and filter and
often have hydrojets or air bubblers for different water effects.
wooden hot tubs were born in the 1960s near Santa Barbara, California.
The local residents bathed regularly for years in the natural hot
springs of Big Caliente, Montecito, and Esalen. The problem was that
while hot spring baths were a pleasure, bathers had to leave their home
to get there.
One bather took an old wine barrel
and spare plumbing parts and placed the contraption near his house.
This inspired invention became the first known modern hot tub.
tubs of today can be installed, inspected and ready to use within a
couple of weeks. Like home spas, hot tubs can be placed on patios and
decks outdoors or indoors - in fact, almost anywhere!
Hot Tub Stairs
Hot tub stairs can be straight and simple or curved. Spa steps can be found with one, two or three rungs. More importantly, hot tub stairs should be the appropriate height and should be made of materials that offer traction - you certainly don't want to slip on them.
Hot Tub Spa Accessories
Hot tub spa accessories are confusing to the modern homeowner. From chemicals, to testing, stairs and filters, whether you are buying a new hot tub or wish to add to your existing one. The following information discusses spa chemicals and accessories.
Hot Tub Sanitizers
Hot tub sanitizers are one of the most important choices a hot tub owner can make. Essentially a sanitizer is the primary product that you will need to keep your hot tub spa clean.
Hot Tub Safety
Your hot tub or home spa can be a source of entertainment and relaxation for years - but only if you use it safely.
Hot Tub Heaters
Hot tub heaters are important to maximize the enjoyment of your spa experience.
Hot Tub Filters
Hot tub spa filters are crucial pieces of equipment for spas. A hot tub without a properly sized, broken or dirty filter will not clean the water properly. Spa filters are most commonly cartridge filters.
Hot Tub Chemicals
Hot tub owners are accustomed to dealing with the competing claims of water-treatment products that go by a variety of names: sanitizers, cleansers, oxidizers, clarifiers, balancers, ionizers, defoamers and more.
