Garden Hose Water Purifier

Hot weather use of spas Many people needlessly discontinue the use of their spas when the summer temperatures rise into the nineties or above.

Although it may sound like a contradiction in terms, your hot tub may actually be the best place to cool-off during a heat wave.

Take a Refreshing Dip in your COOL Tub

To use your spa in "cool-water mode", simply reduce the temperature setting to 85F or less (or turn your heater completely off) and enjoy! With the cover off and air jets running, your water temperature will quickly drop. To maintain cooler water, keep your spa covered during sunny days when not in use. Run the spa with the spa cover open and with water features and air jets operating during cooler evening temperatures. This action together with natural evaporation will cool the water! Use your hot tub to stay cool

Since water heats more slowly than the outside air, the insulated spa will maintain its lower temperature from evening into the following day. And unlike an in-ground pool, a covered, insulated portable spa will not be absorbing radiant heat from direct sunlight during the day, or from a surrounding concrete thermal mass after sundown.

Water balance and the other products you use are maintained exactly the same as with hot water. In fact, some sanitizers work somewhat better at cooler temperatures.

Saving Energy is Cool

Operate your hot tub for pennies a day. Since you will be running your spa heater either at a reduced temperature setting, or completely off during hot weather spells, your cost of operation will be greatly reduced.

So when the temperature soars, make good use of your valuable equipment investment. Enjoy your spa in "cool-water mode". You'll emerge relaxed, refreshed, invigorated... and very cool!
