Your own private hot tub can be a lifesaver as well as a relaxing oasis! The hot water combined with bubbles can ease your aches and pains from a range of conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis or back pain. It can also relax your muscles after a tough workout or run. If you just want to chill after a long day, a spa can be just the spot!
Before you jump into hot tub ownership, check out these factors that you should consider and keep in mind.
Possible impact on utilities: Hot tubs are different from pools as they need to be drained and filled with fresh water four to five times a year. This extra water usage may impact your water bill. Also, your utility bill can be affected by heating of your water. How much depends on how often you use it and if you maintain a higher temperature or not.
Maintenance is required: In order to keep your water and your family safe, you need to follow a strategy just like pool owners do. But as the water is hot, it can breed bacteria or germs more easily. That is why you need to drain and add new water on a regular basis. You also need to watch your filters and scrub the inside walls. Keep debris out and test your water chemical levels. Add chemicals as needed and necessary.
Clarity changes can happen: There will probably be a time when you open your cover and your hot tub water is not at its best. This can happen no matter how hard you try to maintain your chemicals. This can occur if hot tub users have lotion, sunscreen or other skin products on before getting into the water. Debris can also get built up in your filter. Extra sanitizer or chlorine may be needed to clear it up. Of course, it could be that your pool chemistry is not at its optimal level, too.
You should have some usage rules: To help keep your hot tub clean and a safe space to relax, it is good to have some parameters in place. It is best to not allow any glass around the tub, so you don’t run the risk of it breaking and falling into the water. Keep young children, pets and electronics out as well. Try to not have makeup or lotions on before getting into the water.
Winter works your hot tub more: Keeping your water temperature at a comfortable 102 to 104 degrees takes more effort in the cold months, but it is the best time to get inside! Make sure that you have an insulated and quality cover to keep the heat in.
Great store with everything you need for your pool. Also for your patio with their selection of the Green Egg Grills and accessories they can't be beat. Staff is always helpful, and they stock almost any part that you need for your in-ground pool.
We made the great choice to use Caribbean Pools. They are professional, knowledgeable and responsive! They really stand by their product and installation. We've been really impressed with the company. I don't usually write reviews but they are an exceptional team and I wanted others to know that we have found them to be trustworthy!

First time visiting Caribbean Pools. Great staff. Bought a hot tub on the spot. Very informative and GREAT staff. They service the hot tubs they sell...BONUS! No problems so far. Have had our NORDIC Warrior XL since August. Absolutely love our hot tub and truly blessed that we bought it from Caribbean Pools.
We had an amazingly beautiful pool installed by Caribbean Pools. We love it so much, that we got a spa from them as well. Everyone that we dealt with along the way, from customer care to the service technicians, were absolutely wonderful! With my husband working crazy hours, I never worried about dealing with something going wrong with the pool…
I recommend Caribbean Pools to anyone looking to create a backyard oasis for their family. The crew was professional, courteous & knowledgeable. They were “work horses” & perfectionists with their work. Don’t waste your time getting estimates from anyone else. Caribbean Pools is the way to go!
