Buying a Hot Tub

How Hot Tubs Can Improve Family Bonding

Send the neighbor’s kids home, turn off the television, and round up the family for an evening of fun in the hot tub. Your spa provides the perfect place for your kin to spend some quality time together without cell phones buzzing with text messages or social media causing distractions. Because sometimes finding common ground between your teenager and your elementary schooler is a challenge, try some of these family bonding tips:

Star Light, Star Bright

Brush up on your constellations and Greek mythology as a family. Head into the tub on a night where there aren’t any clouds to see the stars at their finest. This is not only a great way to educate your children, but it can also create some friendly competition. See who can find the North Star first or challenge them to find Canis the Dog, Draco the Dragon, and Equus the Horse. Even though it’s practically impossible to impress your kids at their age, show off you knowledge of Greek mythology, or see who can come up with the funniest renditions of the ancient stories.

UNO!

It doesn’t matter how much teenage angst your kids have built up, everyone can get on board with a game of UNO. Stock up on a waterproof deck and let the fun times fly. Even better, up the ante and let the winner skip out on dish washing duty! If teaching your kids the basics of Texas Hold ‘Em is more your style, pick up some traditional waterproof game cards, too.

Food for Thought

Stretch out the evening with your family’s favorite grub. Bribe your kids to join you outside with cheese and crackers, fresh fruit, and veggie dip. If that’s not enough to get them to hang out with you, the smell of your BBQ ribs just may do the trick. Throw some corn on the cob and burgers on the grill and you’ve got yourself a family feast. And to keep the kids coming back for your next backyard hang out, don’t forget to treat them with some dessert.

Hanging out with your family in the hot tub doesn’t have to mean silently staring at one another and watching the seconds tick by. Use this opportunity to strike up conversation, play some games, and get in touch with your sillier sides.

5 Mistakes to Avoid in Your First 100 Days

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.

mistake1 5 Mistakes to Avoid in Your First 100 DaysMISTAKE #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!

 
mistake3 5 Mistakes to Avoid in Your First 100 DaysMISTAKE #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.

mistake5 5 Mistakes to Avoid in Your First 100 DaysMISTAKE #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.

Answering Your Hot Tub FAQs

You asked, and we answered. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about our hot tubs. Read on: The responses might just surprise you!

Why should I invest in a Jacuzzi hot tub?

There are as many answers to this as there are tub owners, but the most universal perk is pure revitalization. From unforgettable moments with family and friends to reflective experiences all by yourself, our whirlpools revitalize mind, body and spirit in a way that no other brand has managed to achieve.

What are the benefits of hydrotherapy?

Our decades of engineering experience have allowed us to create a hydrotherapy system that works on both physical and mental levels. Research indicates that you could experience decreased joint soreness, improved circulation and a boost to the body’s ability to heal itself, and customers have reported a fresh sense of vitality and zeal for life. After all, extended periods of stress can have traumatic effects on your health; the relaxation offered by hydrotherapy aims to correct those problems before they become unmanageable.

How do I decide which size is right for me?

The best place to start is with the installation area itself. If you’re working with a limited space, that alone might dictate the size of your hot tub. For customers who aren’t concerned about square footage, however, it all comes down to how you intend to use the tub. Social gatherings generally warrant larger tubs while private, spa-inspired experiences can stay on the smaller side.

Which Hot Tub Is Right for You?

You’ve made the decision, budgeted the money and found the perfect spot in your backyard. When it comes to buying a Jacuzzi hot tub, however, you’ll want to weigh every option before settling on the perfect model. How to know which hot tub is right for you? It all comes down to four elements.

Function: Start the browsing process by asking yourself one question: How do I envision using this hot tub? Certain models are designed for fun-filled social gatherings, but others make the most sense for a tranquil experience. Your Jacuzzi dealer can even direct you to collections that combine the best of both worlds.

Size: Bigger is only sometimes better. Though larger hot tubs are social and spacious, smaller options can work wonders for a spa-inspired deck or tiny backyard. Balance your intended function with the amount of space you’ve allotted for the tub, and then add a little extra room if you plan on inviting friends for a soak.

Style: From 31-jet wonders with luxurious details to intimate tubs with an understated appearance, the style choices at Jacuzzi are beyond vast. There’s no wrong way to go here; it all comes down to what works best with your home décor, outdoor landscaping, and personal preferences.

Price: While we certainly believe that you can’t put a price on relaxation, we know that cost requirements are top of mind for many buyers. You’ll find an option for nearly any budget, but make sure to factor in your must-have amenities: entertainment systems, spa steps, and a cover lift for instance.

American Heart Month Inspires Everyday Changes

Hot Tub Hydrotherapy Can Be a Step on the Path to Wellbeing

JHT Feb Blog1 1024x683 American Heart Month Inspires Everyday Changes
At Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, we see a connection between making good choices for the sake of your heart health and the positive benefits of hot tubs. Experts tell us that heart disease is preventable and controllable. Eating a healthy diet, getting your blood pressure checked, keeping your weight in a healthy range, and exercising are all recommended, along with no smoking and limiting the use of alcohol.

But where do you start, and how do you stay motivated along the way? This is where hot tub hydrotherapy comes in.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says taking small steps on the path to better heart health is the way to go. Here’s a comparison of what the CDC recommends, and how Jacuzzi Hot Tubs hydrotherapy can support your efforts.

“Don’t become overwhelmed.”
Jacuzzi Tip: Hot tub hydrotherapy can relax your mind and body after a stressful day, renew your energy, and improve your mood. It’s easier to resist the urge to calm the nerves with “stress” eating, and to take a walk after dinner, when you’ve had some time to unwind in your hot tub.

“Don’t go it alone.”
Jacuzzi Tip: The CDC says “The journey is more fun when you have company,” and we agree. Sharing hot tub time with family and friends helps you connect with those who provide support for (and a pleasant break from) your efforts to build healthy habits.

“Don’t get discouraged.”
Jacuzzi Tip: It’s going to take some time to reach your goals for a healthier heart, and we all know how hard it is to stay motivated when you’re feeling tired and sluggish. A hydrotherapeutic massage has been shown to boost circulation and promote a good night’s sleep, leaving you better prepared to face the challenges of the day.

“Reward yourself.”
Jacuzzi Tip: Having fun decreases stress, which has been cited as a contributing factor in heart disease. Kick back in your backyard hot tub with someone you love on Valentine’s Day, for example, and you’ll probably find yourself laughing and talking more easily than you would in a crowded restaurant.

Why not honor American Heart Month by supporting a healthier way of life for you and your family?

Here’s the Breakdown on the Benefits of Jacuzzi® Hydrotherapy

Jacuzzi Hot Tub Infographic2 Got Stress? Get a Hot Tub.

Add this Infographic to your site:

It may be comforting to know that you’re not the only one who worries…about money (75% of us stress over money)…and work (70%)…and relationships (58%). You get the picture. You’re also not alone in being subject to the negative effects of stress, which include:

  • Having trouble falling asleep and waking up at night.
  • Feeling sluggish and less alert during the day.
  • Being “wired” by the body’s production of adrenaline, which gets you ready for action. Since you can’t do anything about that adrenaline rush most of the time (squeezing the steering wheel tighter when stuck in traffic doesn’t count), your body pays the price. Blood vessels get constricted and circulation slows down, which leads to health problems.

All it takes is a quick look at the chart to see how a Jacuzzi hot tub helps you manage stress. The benefits are wide ranging, and include a few that aren’t shown on the chart. For example, sharing time in a hot tub can promote better communication and closer relationships. Spending time outdoors in your hot tub can make you feel more connected to the natural rhythm of the days and seasons, and less of a slave to your crowded schedule.

Behind The Scenes:

Jacuzzi was graciously invited into the home of a local southern California family to capture raw footage featuring a J-480 hot tub installation. Like many families, busy schedules and a flurry of activities tend to dictate the daily pace of hustle and bustle. At this active home, the hot tub is viewed as a place where the family gathers and stays connected. A small area in back of the house was designated as the go to spot to unplug and unwind…as a family.

A Jacuzzi hot tub can make any outdoor space suddenly look like a relaxing oasis.
