Every swimming pool, no matter how high-quality, will require maintenance and the odd repair from time to time. You can follow all the rules, but the truth is that things wear out over time. Some types of damage are best repaired early, to prevent replacement costs. As far as cost goes, we’ve provided a range for each repair type below, but know that details, like your geographical location, type of pool, and intensity of the repairs needed, can all affect the price you’ll pay for the work. The price ranges and repair vs. replacement costs are based on national averages, but be sure to contact a reliable pool company to provide you with quotes based on your specific needs.

Hot tubs are well known to have a variety of evidence-based health benefits. Furthermore, hot tubs are also often used in a type of treatment called hydrotherapy, which is often a part of occupational therapy and physiotherapy. However, the pressing question at hand is: do any of these health benefits have anything to do with weight loss?

While hot tubs should not replace diet or exercise, they can help empower you to diet and exercise better. Not to mention that they can also provide you with a low-impact approach to exercise.
