Everyone loves hot tubs. However, Quebec summers can be hot, so can you use an inflatable spa in summer?
Having a way to enjoy your hot tub at any time of the year, including summer, can help you stay relaxed and refreshed, no matter what the outside temperature.
In this article, we’ll show you how, even in the middle of summer, you can still have fun with your high-end inflatable spa.
What temperature should an inflatable spa be set to in summer?
In general, many people regulate their spas at 32°C/90°F in summer in warmer climates.
That’s why you can switch your spa to economy or sleep mode.
These modes only heat up during filter cycles instead of turning on each time a temperature drop is detected.
Now you can love to keep the water warm, even in summer. But water temperature also affects how long you can soak. Of course, the higher the temperature, the shorter the soaking time.
So, for starters, as the summer months approach, we recommend lowering the temperature on your control panel to at least 32°C / 90°F, if not cooler.
After all, as the sun hits the lid of your spa all day, it will heat the water as if it were under a giant magnifying glass. So lowering the water temperature before the temperatures skyrocket will help keep it cooler.
How can I cool my hot tub?
Although you can simply turn off the electricity and let the water temperature drop, it’s not very safe. The reason is the same as when you see a pond or a lake of standing water. Without electricity, there is no traffic, no jets or pumps.
The water stays still. And, if you add dead skin particles and body oils, you have the perfect recipe for bacterial growth. Even if you keep adding chemicals, without the pump to circulate it, you run the risk that all the water will not be treated.
The best way is to change mode on your control panel.
With the heating turned on only occasionally, it just doesn’t heat as much as it would otherwise. Bad in winter, but great in summer!
What is summer fashion on a high-end inflatable spa?
Summer mode is available on some spa brands, and this mode uses a timer that turns your pump off for 8 hours, allowing the spa to cool down considerably.
Having this 8 hours stop at night is ideal because the lid does not heat up in the sun and prevents much of the temperature drop.
Not all spas have this mode.
No problem however. Economy or sleep mode works in a very similar way.
No matter which of these modes you use, you will probably be able to lower the temperature of your inflatable spa.
What is the best time of day to use your inflatable spa in summer?
The best times to use a hot tub during the hot summer months are in the morning and evening once the sun has set. The water temperature will not be significantly different, but the experience will be more pleasant without the sun’s rays.
Even in the summer, there may be days cooler than others.
Enjoy these cooler nights to relax and unwind after a long day’s work.
Also remember that when you use a hot tub in summer, even in the morning or evening, it’s easy to dehydrate!
Is an inflatable spa good for sore muscles in summer?
In summer, there is nothing better for sore muscles than hot water from a hot tub. So, after mowing the lawn, gardening or any other intense activity, there is nothing better than a good bath to soothe sore muscles.
Turn on the jets for a complete hydrotherapy experience!
Although hydrotherapy is particularly beneficial for the elderly, as studies show, it is also a great way to relax after a workout or garden work.
Does an inflatable spa help relieve summer allergies?
In a study conducted by the Journal of Integrative Medicine, they found that spa steam is effective in controlling and reducing the effects of allergens, and can reduce allergy symptoms such as sneezing, nasal itching and congestion.
A quick dip in your spa can quickly control some of the benefits. And let you enjoy your summer again with your friends and family. It’s better than hiding in your home.
Summer is supposed to be one of the best times of the year for most people. But this is not always the case, especially if you are a person prone to allergies.
If you have a hot tub, however, you can change all that and enjoy what summer has to offer!
Just because it’s a little hot outside doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your spa.
In fact, it can give you the opportunity to better enjoy your life and manage things like muscle pain, allergies and stress.
With the knowledge you are now armed with, you can move forward and enjoy the summer!
