How to Use a Hot Tub in the Summer

Benefits of Hot Tubbing in the Summer

It’s summer, and you’re spending more time outside. Nature is everywhere, and your hot tub is calling to you.

While you probably spent a lot of time soaking in your Caldera spa, you may not be using your hot tub as you should in the summer. The good news is that you can! Let’s look at how to use a hot tub in the summer and get the most out of your spa.

Enjoy a Cool Soak

While you keep your hot tub somewhere between 99° F to 102° F, with a maximum heat of 104°F, you can lower the temperature in the summer and still enjoy the massage.

Just lower your temperature to about 85°F. If it’s really hot, you can simply turn off your heater. You do want to leave your jets running because they’ll help keep your spa cooler. Don’t forget to leave the cover on. This will keep your spa clean and protect your hot tub from water loss.

Soak at Night or Early in the Morning

Another way to enjoy your spa in the summer is to soak either early in the morning or in the evening when the sun goes down.

These are great times to soak either with your heater on or off. You’ll feel refreshed and rejuvenated while allowing your hot tub to soak your stress away. You’ll also benefit from sore muscle and joint relief.

It’s also quite tranquil to soak in the morning and evening. You’ll start and end your day outdoors. This helps you find balance to go about your day or have a great night’s sleep. Don’t forget the benefits of a soak before bedtime for helping you sleep better.

Soak on a Rainy Day

There’s nothing quite like going outside after a really great rain. Now you can jump in your hot tub after a summer rain storm. What’s more, it’s often cooler outside right after a nice rain.

Take this time to soak in your hot tub and enjoy the tranquility that comes with it.

While soaking in the rain is nice and relaxing, please don’t soak if there is lightning and thunder!

4 Ways to Improve Your Heart Health

Relieve Aches and Pains

Summer is a time when people are more active, working out more, gardening, and doing athletic things they might not during the winter.

With increased activity comes the risk of injury and also more aches and pains.

Your hot tub is the perfect spot to relax after a long bike ride, a round of golf, or a day spent hiking. Your muscles and joints will feel so much better as your massaging jets relieve tension and soothe sore muscles.

Final Thoughts

Hot tubbing is a fun activity by yourself, with family, and with friends. It’s relaxing and invigorating at any time of year.

The more you soak, the better you’ll feel, and the better you’ll sleep.

Make a goal to have a 20 minute soak every day. Whether it’s summer or winter, you’ll feel so much better. Not only will you release tension, improve the way your body feels, but you’ll also improve connections with your friends and family!
