How to Beat the Summer Heat with Your Hot Tub

Has the sudden burst of hot weather got you thinking about cooling off in your hot tub? When it’s 30 degrees outside, heating up in a steamy hot tub is furthest from your mind. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative! If you’re looking for a haven in the heatwave, and you want to make the most of your hot tub, then keep reading! In this article, we reveal our favourite tips and tricks for using your hot tub during the summer. Read on for more.

Turn Your Hot Tub into a Cool Tub

There’s no need to maintain a hot temperature in your hot tub, just because it’s a hot tub! When it feels hotter than the hinges of hell, turn down the temperature and grab some bags of ice from your nearest shop and dump them in the hot tub. You can still turn the blower on, and put the jets on high for some hydrotherapy, so you’ll be as cool as a cucumber.  If you’ve never done it before, give it a try. Your body will thank you later!

Keep Hot Tub Covers On

Here’s another great tip to keep your hot tub water cool and refreshing during the summer. Keep your hot tub covers on! Anytime you’re not using it or anytime you’ve achieved the desired temperature, keep the spa covered so you can take advantage of your hot tub’s insulation capabilities. To keep it further chilled let the jets run at night, so when you next take your soak, you can kick back and cool off in style.

Use Your Hot Tub’s Summertime Mode

Depending on the make and model of your hot tub, and how modern it is, cooling your hot tub can be achieved in one single switch. Many of today’s hot tubs include a summertime mode that lowers the temperature by reducing your spa’s filtration. If you’re not 100 percent sure, check your hot tub instruction manual to see if this feature is included.

Perform Low-Impact Exercise

When it’s too hot to exercise, why not use the cool water in your hot tub to perform low-impact stretching? As well as feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, there’ll be little risk of overheating and injury, as the water acts as a cushion on your body’s weight-bearing joints. What better way to build strength, cardio, and resistance while feeling cool, calm and collected.

So, now you know how to turn your hot tub into a cool tub, there’s no reason to neglect it until the autumn.
