Is Your Hot Tub Ready for Fall?

Jacuzzi owners already know this: when summer ends, hot tub usage heats up. The weather gets cooler, kids start new sports activities, and in general, everyone spends more time at home. It’s prime season for spas and hot tubs, so make sure yours is ready for action.

Prepare your hot tub for the cooler days ahead.

• Is your cover in good shape or is it time for a replacement? Your spa cover prevents leaves and dirt from getting into the water, and it keeps the heat inside to conserve energy.
• Start of a new season is a good time to check the filters – replace them if needed for maximum operating efficiency.
• Drain your spa for a thorough cleaning before serious winter weather sets in.
• Program your hot tub’s water temperature so it’s warm when you want to go in and in energy-saving mode at other times. The J-1000™ control system on the J-400™ Collection is the most advanced in the industry (super-easy to use, too).

Why you need hydrotherapy this fall.

• Has your workout routine changed from last summer, or are you just starting one? Hydro-massage soothes sore muscles and strains, and promotes flexibility.
• A 10-minute soak relaxes homework-stressed kids, and parents.
• When the days get shorter, immerse in a warm-water massage instead of holding down the sofa – you’ll probably sleep better afterwards.

People who own spas and hot tubs love to entertain outdoors in every season, too. Half-time during the game or last-minute Friday happy hour, you don’t have to make a big deal out of it – everyone enjoys a warm soak and good conversation.

Need supplies? How about a new cover or accessories? Contact your local Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer for genuine Jacuzzi parts and extras, or to see the latest models.

The Best Hot Tub Maintenance Routine? It’s Easy.

Shoppers always ask about the work involved in taking care of hot tubs and spas. With our new Jacuzzi models, maintenance is incredibly simple, thanks to advanced filtration and purification systems. I should say “thanks” to our engineers! The innovative technology used to design the optimum system for each specific model means everything works in sync. The water stays cleaner longer and chemical usage is minimal.

Here are 5 simple tips to keep your hot tub’s water clean, systems running smoothly, and everything looking new:

• Use only the best hot tub parts and supplies: genuine Jacuzzi products.
• Clean and replace your filters as needed.
• Remove leaves and debris from your hot tub cover and keep it clean. Ask your Jacuzzi dealer about easy maintenance for your model’s cover.
• Avoid going into the water with oils and heavy lotions on your skin – they can leave a film on the sides of the hot tub.
• Drain, clean and refill your spa every 3-4 months, depending on your usage.

The best hot tub breakthrough in easy water maintenance is the CLEARRAY® Water Purification System. It uses natural UV-C light technology and doesn’t add any gas or chemical by-products to the water. You can cut down the amount of chemicals needed by about 50%, and it instantly kills up to 99% of waterborne bacteria. You can relax because the water’s clear and fresh without a lot of work on your part.

To get details on maintaining specific models, the person to talk to is your authorized Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer. They know the models inside and out, and have experience helping people who have purchased hot tubs and spas. I recommend contacting a Jacuzzi dealer near you or stopping by the showroom to learn more.

Making Your Hot Tub Guests Feel At Home

Tips for Having a Trouble-free Good Time

Hot Tub Guests JLX 300x228 Making Your Hot Tub Guests Feel At Home

For most people, late November marks the beginning of festivities and entertaining guests at home. The holidays are a popular time to invite friends and family over and the perfect occasion to relax and catch up in the hot tub. We asked our Jacuzzi® Facebook followers to share their advice and hot tub tips for guests.

We got a kick out of some of the responses:
- Welcome to our s a, there is no p in it. Keep it that way!
- Don’t drink and dive.
- Bring those you love.

A good way to make sure everyone feels at home is to establish your own set of ground rules to follow. It’s easier than it sounds, and a few guidelines can help make everybody feel comfortable and welcomed.

Snack items and beverages. Most invited guests will ask what they can bring in terms of snacks and beverages. As the host, provide the snacks items and drinks the first time guests are over and use the hot tub. Serve “hot tub safe” snacks, like fresh veggies, olives and other goodies that you can easily retrieve in case they fall into the water. Avoid serving snacks like crackers or potato chips, these type of snacks crumble and can easily fall into the water and cause a nightmare to clean up. Cool beverages taste great and refreshing when you’re soaking in a hot tub – be festive with cranberry juice spritzers garnished with mint leaves. Non-alcoholic smoothies are always a popular choice for kids and adults. Take the opportunity to explain to guests the reason for your hot tub safe snack and beverage choices- so they can keep it in mind for the next party.

No foam please. Although the kid in all of us enjoys a warm bubbly bath, foam in a hot tub is not considered a good thing. The appearance of foam on spa water is typically created by:

  • Shampoo or hair gel residue – Provide hair bands so guests with long hair can easily tie it up and keep it out the water.
  • Body oil and lotions – Applying body oil or lotion the morning of an evening party is fine and will most likely not affect spa water. However, it’s best to notify guests ahead of time not to apply lotions or oils on skin right before arriving to the party. Offer guests a variety of skin moisturizers to use immediately after bathing.
  • Excessive detergent- Many people wash their swimsuit in strong detergents, which may reside in the clothing even after the rinse cycle. Ask your guests to rinse their swimsuits in water prior to arriving.

Easy in, easy out. Going barefoot and stepping into the spa may track grass or dirt into the clean water. Keep extra sets of outdoor slippers handy for spa guests. It’s easy to keep the hot tub water clean if your guests wear slip-on shoes and remove them right before they step into the hot tub.

Warm, cozy and dry. For me, the ultimate spa experience involves wrapping myself up in a large fluffy towel to stay cozy immediately after stepping out of the water. Extend the hospitality and make your guests feel pampered. Set out stacks of freshly laundered large fluffy towels near the spa and easily accessible.

We hope you find the above tips helpful as you begin party planning this season. Your guests are sure to enjoy relaxing in your hot tub and appreciate the extra thought put into making them feel at home.

Why You Should Use Only Genuine Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Filters

filter 199x300 Hot Tub Filters: Changed Yours Lately?

Hot Tub Filters: All filtration systems are not the same. Neither are all filters. Don’t be fooled by “generic replacement filters” or “imitations” instead of genuine Jacuzzi Hot Tub filters. Non-genuine hot tub filters may be less expensive, but using them could prove to be very costly to you in terms of performance and overall value. Using non-genuine Jacuzzi hot tub filters may also void your warranty.

Your Jacuzzi Hot Tub is an investment, and like any investment, proper and regular maintenance of your hot tub will help it retain its beauty and performance. Your authorized Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer can supply you with all of the information and supplies you need.
