The warm weather is finally here, and people across the UK are breaking out their shorts and barbecues as the temperatures heat up. If you’re lucky enough to own a hot tub in your garden or summer house, you may be thinking that the warmer temperatures mean it won’t – or shouldn’t – get much use. However, you can still get plenty of enjoyment from your hot tub when the heat rises. From switching up the time of day to cooling down the water temperature, see below for some easy ways to make the most of your hot tub during summer.
Turn the temperature down
The first logical step is to turn the temperature on your hot tub down as far as it will go – or if you’re feeling brave – even off completely to create a cooling plunge pool to dip into when the heat gets too much. A strategically placed patio umbrella can also make a big difference to a hot tub’s temperature and cool it down by keeping it in the shade.
A good time for maintenance
If it really is too hot to get much use from your hot tub, then this is the perfect time for some routine cleaning and maintenance. Have the tub drained and inspected by a professional before giving it a thorough clean. The tub can then be filled with fresh water and the chemicals checked to be sure they’re at the right levels. Regular maintenance is important to ensure your hot tub stays fully functioning throughout the summer and for years to come.
Morning and evening soaks
Make the most of your hot tub by using it either early in the morning or at dusk, when temperatures will be cooler and you can escape the fierce midday sun. Sitting in a hot tub after the sun has gone down can also be a magical experience; what could be better than relaxing in some warm water while looking up at the stars?
It’s easy to become dehydrated as temperatures rise, and it’s especially important to make sure you’re drinking enough water if spending time in a steamy hot tub. Keep bottles of water within easy reach, preferably one with measurements marked on so you can keep track of how much you’re drinking throughout the day.
