Winter Hot Tub Spa Use vs. Summer Hot Tub Use
"Point - Counterpoint"
Winter Hot Tub Use:
I Like Winter Hot Tub Use:
My name is Jeff Baxter and I am a
Senior Customer Service Representative for PoolAndSpa.com and I cannot believe that
anyone would use a hot tub when it is hot
out. Get it? It's a Hot tub. Hot weather? it just is not natural, I tell you!
When it is cold outside, you want to get warm. When it is
hot out, you want to get colder. That is why they invented air conditioning. They
invented hot tubs so that you can get a nice hot soak when it is otherwise cold outside.
I am a skier, and I just love going up to Vermont in the
winter, skiing all day, then taking a nice hot soak in the spa afterwards. It feels so
good on all my muscles after a tough day of skiing. I love how the cold air feels on your
face while you are outside soaking in 103 degree water and the snow is falling around you.
There is nothing quite like it !
With my hot tub in New York, we generally open it up in
the middle of September and use it straight through the winter until about the beginning
of May. We then drain it out and cover it until it starts to get cold again in the fall. I can think of no worse feeling than getting into a boiling
hot tub when it is humid and 95 degrees out. How can anyone possibly enjoy this ?
We also have a big problem with mosquitoes in the summer.
Once 6 PM comes around, those little guys come out in force. I remember last year going
over to a friends house in July. We had a nice dinner and then he invited me into
his spa. It was about 8 PM, and we were almost totally eaten up by mosquitoes and gnats !
Is that true hot tub pleasure ?
I absolutely love using the hot tub around the Holidays.
After Thanksgiving dinner, it is a family tradition to all go out and take a long soak in
the spa. Last year, my whole family got in the tub on Christmas morning. It was great !
I feel truly sorry for those who do not know the pleasure
of winter hot tubbing. I think everyone should try hot tubbing in the winter,
and I am sure that you will have the time of your life and forget about summer tubbing
Summer Hot Tub Use:
I Like Summer Hot Tub Use:
My name is Jane Friedman and I work in the Shipping
Department of PoolAndSpa.com. I was asked to write this essay because everyone here
knows how much I love to use my hot tub spa in the summer time.
They all think I am crazy ! Most of the people that work
here are the "winter kind" of hot tub people, so they always make fun of me for
enjoying my spa when it is warm out. But I am here, publicly, to tell all of them that
they are the crazy ones. I know that many of you reading this will agree !
I like to open up my hot tub in May, once it starts to get
warm outside. I normally like my tub to be ready for the Memorial Day
Weekend when my family has a big party. Our hot tub is always a centerpiece at the party.
This year, we stuffed 10 people in the little thing at one point! It was a lot of fun.
I especially like to use my tub alone with my husband on
summer nights. We like to put the kids to bed and take long soaks while looking up at the
stars. It is very romantic.
The best part about using a spa in the summer is that you
do not have to get out and face the freezing cold wind. I dont understand how people
could possibly want to freeze their butts off when they get in or out of the spa.
Dont they keep getting colds ? Dont their little toes freeze when running in
or out of the spa ? Dont they hate having icicles form in their hair as the wind
whistles through their ears ? Are these people nuts, or what ?
I much prefer it when the weather is warm and I dont
have to worry about all of those "cold" inconveniences. I enjoy reading a good
book on a warm August afternoon in my spa. I like to play with my kids in the tub and not
have to worry that they will catch their death of cold.
Come the end of September, we drain out the tub, winterize
the pipes and equipment and cover it up. Over the winter we look at it occasionally and
wait for the time when the warm wind of spring blows again.
