What you get out of your new Jacuzzi® brand hot tub is what you put into it. Ask any long-term hot tub owner and they’ll attest to the fact that there are certain things they’d wish they’d known during their first 100 days of ownership. With that in mind, make sure that you aren’t missing out on any of the opportunities your new hot tub provides with this list of 5 mistakes to avoid.

MISTAKE #1: I can’t find the time to take a dip.
Whether it’s a quick dip in the early hours of the morning, a post-work moment to decompress or a Sunday night ritual to prepare for the week ahead, all it takes is 15 minutes here and there to reap the benefits of your new hot tub. However, it’s equally important that the hot tub time you set aside is pressure-free. If it’s your usual hot tub night and you prefer to unwind on the couch with some TV instead, it’s no big deal. Your hot tub is a source of enjoyment and pleasure, not an obligation.
 


MISTAKE #2: I haven’t customized my hot tub to meet my needs.
You wouldn’t drive a new car without first adjusting your seats, mirror, radio and climate settings. Likewise, as a new hot tub owner, it’s important to find out what feels right for you when it comes to temperature, seating, jets and pressure. Use your first 100 days as a hot tub owner to familiarize yourself with each configuration and watch as, in no time, you become a certified hot tub expert!

 
MISTAKE #3: I haven’t created a family hot tub ritual.
Hot tubs are the ultimate gathering place for the entire family, which is why making hot tub time a family ritual is so effective for quality bonding time. It helps to think of it as an extension of your living room with the added bonus of heated water and massaging jets, where everyone can get together after their day to chat, relax and enjoy each other’s company. Activities like game night or star gazing help to keep all ages entertained and coming back for more.



MISTAKE #4: I haven’t hosted a hot tub party.

One of the most satisfying aspects of being a new hot tub owner is watching others enjoy the pleasure it provides. Don’t miss out on the satisfaction of showcasing your new back yard investment by hosting at least one hot tub party during your first 100 days of ownership. To help the party run as smoothly as possible, take the time to do some simple preparations in the way of refreshments, spare towels and party playlists. Hot tub theme parties are also a great way to turn it up a notch and keep your guests coming back for more.

MISTAKE #5: I haven’t used my hot tub for romance.
The hot tub is most enjoyable when in the company of at least one other person, especially when that person is your significant other. Alone time in the hot tub with that special someone allows for relaxed communication that’s free of distractions and interruptions. It’s also the ideal place for sparking romance, so the next time it’s date night, head for the back yard. Turn up the heat with some candles, romantic music and the built-in loveseat that’s ideal for couples.
