Ways to Use Your Hot Tub in the Summer

There’s nothing quite like sinking slowly into your hot tub in the cooler months, but when the temperature rises from May to September, your hot tub can suddenly seem downright unappealing. The idyllic summer months can pass without a second thought to your hot tub. The fact is, though, that you can still get plenty of use out of your hot tub during the warmer summer months! These three ways of putting your hot tub to use this summer can make your back yard the go-to fun place to be this year!

Adjust the Temperature

Did you know that your hot tub actually has a variable temperature range, instead of being stuck at just one set temperature? Many people are surprised that hot tubs can actually operate at cooler temperatures, too. While many people like to keep it on the hotter side, you can actually turn it as low as 85 degrees or lower if you like. You can even power down the heating system altogether for a much cooler experience if you wish.

Just make sure you keep it clean and free from bacteria and buildup! When the sun is blazing, your cooler hot tub can be an inviting and refreshing escape from the heat once more.

Soak at Night

Of course, when the sun is high in the sky, nobody wants to think about a hot soak. But what about those crisp early mornings, before the sun has fully risen? A luxurious session in your hot tub can help wake you up and motivate you to start your day with some pep in your step.

After the sun sets, and you can hear the summer crickets and cicadas, sneak back into your hot tub again to unwind after a long day of work, lounging or summer activities. When the cool evening breezes start to blow through, you’ll hardly notice it when you’re up to your shoulders in pleasantly warm water.

Soak After a Summer Shower

The summer months are notorious for their sudden torrential downpours, and after a good rain, the temperatures seem to rapidly drop or at least cool down. Take advantage of these unexpected cool snaps by escaping to your hot tub. Grab some cold and refreshing drinks, in shatterproof containers, of course, and set your towels up on a dry perch and put your relaxation face on. Plus, everything feels cleaner and fresher after a good rain, making your soak in your hot tub all the more enjoyable.
