What are the benefits of a hot tub?

While using a hot tub is a relaxing pastime, it can provide several mental and physical benefits as well. So, take solace in knowing that you are doing your body a service by taking a daily dip. The overall wellness benefits include: 

  • Improved range of motion and temporary pain relief of minor aches and pains 
  • Increased blood flow because the heat dilates blood vessels 
  • Therapeutic massage from the jets 
  • Increased heart rate despite decreased blood pressure 
  • Improved respiratory health as the steam opens nasal passageways 
  • Reduced blood sugar levels 
  • Tension headache relief 
  • Reduced stress 

Do hot tubs help you detox?

Another perk of acquiring a hot tub from Deep Blue Pools and Spas for your Salt Lake City-area residence is having the ability to detoxify your body at home. Before using your hot tub, take a bath or shower so you can scrub your skin with a coarse washcloth to exfoliate and allow your pores to breathe. Soaking in the warm hot tub will cause your core temperature to rise, and your body will begin to sweat. As a result, your body will flush any toxins via your pores. To complete the process, take a quick shower after your hot tub session to rinse any impurities that remain on your skin’s surface. 

Which hot tub brand should I choose?

A hot tub is a significant investment and addition to your home, so it is imperative that you carefully consider the brands and features that you want. Our team of experts at Deep Blue Pools and Spas will help you sift through the sales pitches each company employs so you have a clear understanding of what you are purchasing. This friendly service will help you ensure that you are getting the best value. Among the items to consider when choosing your hot tub are ease of installation, quality, energy efficiency, and cost. 

How much does a hot tub cost? 

The price of a hot tub in Salt Lake City will vary greatly depending on its quality, features, size, engineering, and design, among other factors. Other aspects in play when determining hot tub costs are dealer location and freight costs, dealer overhead, and services such as repairs that are included as part of the hot tub package. General price ranges for hot tubs are: 

  • Entry-level hot tubs – $3,000-$5,000 
  • Value-priced hot tubs – $4,000-$8,000 
  • Premium hot tubs – $6,000-$10,000 
  • Luxury hot tubs – $9,000-$16,000 

What is the difference between a hot tub and a spa?

The most significant difference between a hot tub and a spa is the setting. A hot tub is essentially an above-ground portable spa. All of its plumbing, components, and control systems are inside its cabinet. Hot tubs can be simplistic or feature intricate shells with a multitude of jets. Spas are usually attached to an in-ground pool and require considerably more energy to maintain a hot temperature.  

Is it better to use a sauna or a hot tub?

Hot tubs and saunas are similar, with both providing heat to relax the body and alleviate aches and pains as well as a peaceful setting in which to relax. However, hot tubs are typically more versatile than saunas in terms of appearance and also provide the benefit of massage. Hot tubs and saunas will both perform more efficiently following a professional installation and with routine maintenance. Your specific goals will determine which option is better for you, but the versatility and additional benefits of a hot tub make it a splendid choice for your home. Deep Blue Pools and Spas specializes in the installation and repairs for both hot tubs and spas in the Salt Lake City Metro Area. 

Is a hot tub good for recovery?

Improving respiratory and cardiac function while alleviating muscle pains make a hot tub perfect for recovery from a stressful day or strenuous workout. Setting aside 30 minutes as part of your routine three or four days per week will produce emotional and physical benefits. 

Do I need a fence around my hot tub?

You will need to check the local building codes for your home in the Salt Lake City Metro Area, as well as any relevant homeowners’ association rules to determine if a fence is required. However, either way, it is a recommended addition to provide extra safety and protection from drowning or even vandalism. Please contact Deep Blue Pools and Spas for additional information about hot tub and spa installations and repairs in the Salt Lake City Metro Area. 

How often should I change the water in my hot tub or spa?

Depending on how often you use your hot tub or spa, every 8 to 12 weeks.
