Hot Tub Trends That Are Hot, Hot, Hot, So You Do Not Want To Miss
What’s putting the “hot” in hot tubs this year? Here’s a clue: It’s not just the heater that is hot, hot, hot!
Once looked on as a luxury, backyard spas are making their way into the mainstream. Maybe more people realize the health benefits they offer. For the conventional pool owner, a backyard spa also extends the swimming season. Or maybe it’s because new technology allows folks to customize their spas with LEDs, music and hydrotherapy options.
Here are a few of the other hot tub trends rising to the surface:
- People are looking at more oversized spas, especially swim spas that offer room to move. A hybrid of sorts, the swim-spa allows you to swim laps against counter-currents and opens your hot tub to more friends. There’s also room for a swim-up bar like the ones you’d find at a resort.
- Spas are getting smart. Following in the steps of smartphones and smart homes, pools now allow you to automate maintenance routines. Chemical balance? Check. Need a shot of chlorine? Check. A little stabilizer? Check. All of these actions can be managed from your web-connected smartphone or another mobile device.
- They’re more energy-efficient, too. Tubs are surrounded with better insulation, and covers keep the heat in. Additionally, many tubs now come with energy-consumption monitors and self-diagnostic controls. These devices are good for the environment and your wallet.
