Pool Season is Over, Hot Tub Season is Just Beginning

Despite the warmer weather that we have been experiencing this fall, you probably already took some time to cover up and winterize your pool—a good idea, since you don’t want to get stuck with a pool that’s not ready when winter weather does hit. If you’re feeling a little sad about having to say goodbye to pool time for a few months, maybe it’s time to think about the benefits of adding a hot tub to your home.

Quality Time

One of the great benefits of having a pool is all the quality time you get to spend with friends and family, and hot tubs are a way you can continue that quality time even when the weather is too cold for a pool party. Sure, they’re not quite as large, so you’ll have to narrow down that list of friends and family to your favorites, but hot tubs today come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, giving you plenty of options for quality time with groups large and small.


When you purchase a hot tub with special jets and other added features, it can provide the perfect level of hydrotherapy to soak away sore muscles, sweat out toxins after a hard workout or when you’re feeling a little under the weather, or just give you a nice massage to relax away the stress of your day. Hydrotherapy options range from simple to advanced, and can be added to many different spa models.


Exercising outside in freezing temperatures? You might not think it sounds like much fun, but it could be with a hot tub, and today you have more choices than ever with options for aquatic exercise, such as a propeller that moves the water (allowing you to swim in place in larger hot tubs) or a treadmill that you can walk. Even a basic hot tub without all the bells and whistles can provide you with the opportunity to stretch when your muscles are warm and bendable, or do some resistance exercises with small weights and use the resistance of the water for a degree of added difficulty.

A Cozy Escape

When the weather gets below freezing outside, there is nothing better than being able to sit and soak in a nice 100+ degree hot tub. It’s a great way to decompress after a hard workout, or the perfect setting for a romantic evening for two.
