Are you considering buying a hot tub? Have you ever thought about how hot tubs actually work? It is important to know how your hot tub is going to work and if there is anything you need to be aware of, so let’s take a look…
Self-contained hot tubs
Outdoor hot tubs are self-contained units, this means that no additional plumbing is required for the setup. The hot tub does need to be plugged in though, so it is important that you can keep the electrical cords neat and out of the way. A good way of keeping wires hidden is to dig up a bit of the ground and bury the wires in there. The next thing you need to consider is filling your hot tub up, most hot tubs can be filled with a water hose, so make sure you have water access and a long garden hose so you can easily fill and drain the tub.
The jets & pump
The best bit, the water jets! But how do the jets work? Well, the pump pulls air through each water jet and this is what generates the stream of pressurised and bubbly water. The jets allow you to comfortably relax as well as massaging the skin, eliminating sore or painful muscles. The pump is what makes the water circulate through the hot tub, it is responsible for filtering and operating the water jets also.
Having the right filter in your hot tub is so important, as it acts as a sanitisation system, keeping the water clean and sanitary. Normally, there are several filters in a hot tub and they do need to be cleaned regularly. It is important to remember that they also need to be replaced every so often. You can find a range of filters here.
By understanding how the components of your hot tub work, you can ensure that your hot tub is operating optimally.
