Most Attractive Types of Greenery to Surround Your Hot Tub

If you’re seeking to complement your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub with some creative plant life, here are a few suggestions that can position your spa as a centerpiece, while enhancing the overall aesthetic of your yard:

WEEPING BLUE ATLAS CEDAR (Cedrus atlantica)

This slow-growing, drought-tolerant evergreen reaches heights of about 10 feet, and can be trained to “weep” over fences, walls, or arbors. (This evergreen doesn’t shed its needles in fall, which span the spectrum from silvery blue to dark green, so you can enjoy its color year round.) And the striking contours of the moody conifer ensure that it’s an attractive addition to any size yard.

CAST IRON PLANT (Aspidistra elatior)

Native to Taiwan and Japan, this dark, leafy evergreen earned its nickname based on its ability to withstand extremely unfavorable conditions. Not only is it undaunted by the driest of droughts, but it’s equally unfazed by the sultriest summers and wickedest winters. The Cast Iron Plant can grow up to two-feet tall, even under heavy shade, and it’s perfectly fine when neglected for weeks—or even months—on end. They’ll fill in your dark patio corners with pretty lance-shaped leaves.

TOPIARIES

Topiary

Introduce an element of evergreen elegance to your yard with a meticulously trimmed tree. Whether planted in the ground or in a container, topiaries make outstanding embellishments to any garden, and will look wonderful next to your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. Topiaries come in all shapes and sizes from spirals to pom poms you’re sure to find a shape that fits your garden. Consider Eugenia in warmer environs, Boxwood in cooler climes, and containers of Sky Pencil Holly paired with Japanese Forest Grass as an alternate option for a privacy screen.

ANNUALS

Annual bed

Looking for a pop of seasonal color to add to your hot tub landscape? The options are endless with annuals! Fragrant Freesia offer both color and appealing scent; Ipomoea (sweet potato vine) come in a variety of colors and create a spilling effect in container plantings. And if you’re looking for something different, try ornamental cabbage and kale which provide any planting with both striking color and creative texture.

When you’re ready to start sprucing up the area surrounding your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, be sure to check out these great tips for turning your backyard into a garden oasis, and other ways to put your green thumb to good use.

How Hot Tubs May Improve Your Type 2 Diabetes Symptoms

Hot Tub Pre-Installation Checklist

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are easily installed, but there are a number of things that you should expect prior to the arrival of your new relaxation station. Here are some things a reputable hot tub dealer will help you figure out before your spa arrives:

Does your city or county have any requirements, like a gate, fence, or steps that you need when you have a hot tub on your property?

Some cities have municipal codes in place to protect children, such as obligating owners to install gates, fencing, or other such barriers to deny access to unsupervised children. Your local Jacuzzi® Hot Tub dealer will have that information ready for you and help guide you through the installation process.

How much room do installers need to get your hot tub into your yard?

Installation of your new hot tub requires a completely unobstructed route to ensure that the unit does not incur any damage along the way. Double check all gates and entranceways to ensure sufficient clearance. Determine ahead of time the route that the installer should take when your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub arrives. Keep an eye out for objects that might hinder the delivery team in any way, and remove those obstacles in advance of the installer’s arrival. Also inspect your yard for any overhanging branches, rain gutters, or protruding electrical meters that might impede the installation process. Are there more than 6 consecutive stairs without a landing in your delivery route? If so, you must consult your Jacuzzi dealer prior to delivery to make adequate preparations.

Indoor or outdoor? On a deck or on the ground?  Grass or gravel underneath? Does the location you’ve chosen make sense?

Due to the heft of the hot tub, water, and happy bathers inside, it’s of the utmost import that the foundation upon which your unit sits is completely level and capable of equally distributing the weight that rests upon it. Your hot tub dealer will help you decide which type of foundation is best for you.

What are the electrical requirements?

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs that are installed in the United States must meet the wiring specifications established by the National Electric Code (NEC) as well as any other state or local codes. Any circuitry must be installed by a professional electrician and receive approval an appropriate inspection official.

Owning a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can instantly increase your quality of life by providing a relaxing hydromassage and a variety of other health benefits. Before your hot tub arrives, check out this video to see how you’re the installation may go. And if you’re interested in learning even more, take a look at this detailed Pre-Delivery Guide to get you ready for the big day.

The Seven Ailments that Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs Can Alleviate

Hydrotherapy and hydromassage can be used to relieve the symptoms of a multitude of maladies including stress, arthritis, sleeplessness, fibromyalgia, lower-back pain, post-exercise soreness, and leg cramps/restless legs syndrome.

Here’s a closer look at these afflictions and how Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs can alleviate their harmful effects.

  • STRESS

Stress can originate from any number of life’s facets, including money, work, family, and health. And according to a report by the Mayo Clinic, the long-term activation of the stress-response system can disrupt almost all of your body’s natural processes and put you at increased risk for numerous health problems.1 But just 10 minutes in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub each day can dissolve stress and relieve headaches by increasing blood flow and soothing muscles.

  • ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is a condition that stiffens joints and causes pain for roughly 350 million people on the planet. Heated hydrotherapy, however—such as is offered in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub—has been proven to reduce pain levels in those with arthritis by opening blood vessels, increasing range of movement, and promoting muscle growth.2

  • SLEEPLESSNESS

If you suffer from bouts of sleeplessness, some time in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub can send you to snoozeville in no time at all. According to the Better Sleep Council, immersing your body in warm water helps create healthy sleep habits by relieving tension and stimulating circulation.3 Plus, when your body is cooling down after a hot tub session, your brain receives subconscious messages suggesting that you sleep.

  • FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia is a condition that affects the entire body in myriad ways. The disorder is often associated with sweeping musculoskeletal discomfort, but can also negatively impact the mood, energy level, and sleep habits of those coping with it. The Mayo Clinic notes that warm water is effective in treating fibromyalgia, due to its ability to foster relaxation and mitigate muscle tension.4

  • LOWER-BACK PAIN

In a 2012 survey conducted by the American Physical Therapy Association, nearly two out of every three Americans admitted to dealing with discomfort in their lower backs at one point or another. With so many individuals afflicted by this pain, it’s no wonder that the “Journal of Musculoskeletal Research” stated that hydrotherapy offers more potential benefits for those with lower-back pain, in comparison to land-based forms of exercise.5 

  • POST-EXERCISE SORENESS

Spending time in the gym can work wonders for your body, but sore muscles the day following an intense session can make movement difficult. That’s why Dr. James Andrews, former president of the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine, recommends hydrotherapy for every athlete based on its ability to increase blood flow, improve sensory impulses, and assuage stiff joints.6

  • LEG CRAMPS/RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME

Though there remains uncertainty as to the cause behind the unpleasant sensation that millions of people experience in their thighs, calves, and feet, one likely factor is that brain misfires signals to sensory nerves in the lower extremities. Relaxing in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub prior to sleeping can diminish those feelings and while putting your muscles at ease.7

Spending time in your hot tub or bathtub to enjoy hydrotherapy can help ameliorate suffering from these ailments. Consult your physician for the best course of action for your medical condition.

How Hot Tubs Can Help Aging Skiers and Athletes

Skiing is a sport that is particularly rough on the knees; despite modern equipment and advancing medicinal practices, skiing on aging joints can be a hazardous practice. So how can skiers, and athletes in general, continue to enjoy the sports they love, while minimizing the stress on their bodies? A recent article in “The San Francisco Examiner” called “Skiing on an Aging Knee[1],” addresses this exact issues:

Skiing into Your 80s

In the article, Dr. Kevin R. Stone, an orthopedic surgeon in San Francisco, took a look at methods to keep skiers moving well into their 80s, and one of his suggestions was soaking in a hot tub.

“To ski, we must bend the knees,” Dr. Stone notes. Bending the knee affects where you go while you ski, as well as how the rest of your body moves with the motion. The article focuses on the effect skiing has on older knees, but in reality the knee is just the lynchpin to the rest of the body. Hips, ankles, elbows, and wrists are all affected by skiing, and keeping them all healthy and functioning is critical to enjoying a good run down the slope.

Maintaining Flexibility with Hot Tubs

To help you attain maximum flexibility while skiing, Dr. Stone recommends sitting in a hot tub before hitting the hills. “Stretching in a warm bath, hot tub, or shower improves flexibility,” he writes, pointing out that such exercise helps loosen up the tissue.

In addition, the hot tub is naturally a place for you to sit quietly and clear your mind, allowing you to focus more on your upcoming ski run. You’ll have a much easier time coming down the mountain if you aren’t thinking about your upcoming work projects or other stressors in your life.

Stretching to Stay on the Slopes

Spend some time soaking in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub or Bathtub to maximize the benefits Dr. Stone describes in his article. While you’re in your spa, perform simple stretches, such as leg lifts and toe points, to help your body limber up and prep for the skiing ahead.

Top Questions to Ask a Spa Dealer

You’re ready to visit your local Jacuzzi® dealer to learn more about purchasing the right hot tub or bathtub for your home, but you may not be sure what questions to ask. It’s understandable that you’d like to be a well-informed consumer and make sure you get the important details sorted out. To help get you started, here are some questions to keep in mind when you make the trip to the dealer:

  • How long has Jacuzzi been in business?

               Does Jacuzzi offer a warranty? If so, what does it cover?

  • How long has your dealership been in business?

              Do you have any customer testimonials or videos you can share with me? What customer service offerings do you provide?

  • What jets are right for me?

              What part of your body do you want to focus on? Which jet configurations are available in each model?

  • Can I take a wet test?

              Do I need to make an appointment? What is involved in a wet test? How long can I stay in the hot tub or bathtub? 

  • What colors are available for the shells and cabinetry?

               Do color swatches for the acrylic shell and cabinetry look different online as opposed to in person? Are certain patterns unique to each hot tub? 

  • How much space do I need for delivery?

              Can I arrange for a home inspection from an expert prior to making a decision to help determine if I have the needed space? 

  • How intensive is the maintenance?

               How much time can I expect to spend cleaning? How often do I have to clean? What cleaning products do you recommend to keep my Jacuzzi® Hot Tub                spotless? Do I need to take special steps with the changing seasons?

Throw a Kid-Friendly Backyard Party with Your Hot Tub

Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs are known to turn every gathering up a notch or two, and that holds true even for kids’ parties. Plan an enjoyable, family-friendly party in your backyard by inviting your kids’ friends (and their parents) over for a good time and some relaxation in the hot tub. Here are a few ideas to help you get to know everyone:

Backyard Scavenger Hunt

Before your guests arrive, hide toys, treats, or household items around your yard, ideally within view of your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. When the kids arrive, give them either a written list or a picture list (depending upon their age) of the hidden objects, and send them on a quest to find them all. An added bonus: Parents can keep an eye on their young‘uns from the comfort of your hot tub.

Dunking Duck Hunt

Purchase two dozen small rubber ducks and a few nets the size you’d use in a fish tank. Using a marker, write a number between one and 12 on the bottom of each duck, making sure to use each number twice. Toss the ducks in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub and supervise the kids while they take turns using the net to “catch” two ducks. If the ducks they catch both have the same number, the kids gets a point and the ducks stay out of the water. If the numbers are different, no points are awarded and the ducks continue “swimming.” Play continues until all pairs of ducks are “captured” and the winner is whoever has the most ducks at the end.

Football Toss

Using a pair of scissors or shears, cut a variety of different shapes (circles, triangles, stars, etc.) out of a large tarp or old bed sheet. Outline the shapes of the holes using brightly colored duct tape. Then, with a marker, write different point values beneath each hole. (The narrower the hole, the greater the point value.) Hang the tarp between two trees, gazebo posts, or other structures in your backyard, and challenge the kids to toss a football (or other ball) through the holes. Whichever kid racks up the most points in ten throws, wins the game. Bonus: kids can toss the balls from the warmth of your hot tub.

These are just a few simple ideas to get the good times rolling at your next backyard party. And with a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, the parents can enjoy watching all the games from the comfort of the warm water.

The Different Stages of Filtration

Filtration is an essential component in keeping any hot tub clean. And the purification process in Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs makes maintenance simple so you can spend more time enjoying your hot tub.

Here’s a look at the five different stages of the purification process in Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs:

The Five Stages of the Jacuzzi® Water Treatment Process

CLEARRAY illustration

  1. The whole process starts with the ProClarity™ filtration system (exclusively on J-400™ Collection models). This filter traps tiny particles that slip past the other filters, ensuring only the cleanest, clearest water in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub.
  2. Next, to prevent harmful bacteria from accumulating, the ProClear™ Filter (J-300™, J-LX®, and J-400™ Collections) clarifies water even when the jets aren’t powered on, giving you peace of mind when the pumps are off.
  3. The Surface Skimmer (present in the J-200™, J-300™, J-LX® and J-400™ Collections) works in conjunction with the ProCatch™ Filter Bag (J-300™, J-LX® and J-400™ Collections only) to gather oil, grease, and sizable bits of debris before they create a less-than-optimal environment.
  4. Then a pleated cartridge filter works with your hot tub’s hydromassage pump to rid your water of any remaining impurities.
  5.  And the last line of defense when keeping your water safe is the CLEARRAY® Purification System, included standard in every Jacuzzi® Hot Tub model. This system employs pathogen-eliminating ultraviolet light to ensure a constant flow of clean, clear water. CLEARRAY® also reduces the amount of sanitizer required by your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, making maintenance that much more effortless.

To further maintain an ideal experience in your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub, use testing strips to ensure that chlorine levels are within an acceptable range. If the chemicals drop to a dangerously low level, bacteria and other germs will have the opportunity to not only survive, but thrive. Remember to keep your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub functioning at peak performance with Jacuzzi® Genuine Parts and Accessories, available online or at your local Jacuzzi® dealership.
