You might think its crazy to get in a hot tub in the summer, after all, its already 95 degrees outside, why would you want to get in the hot tub? Even at resorts in places like Hawaii and the Caribbean there are hot tubs everywhere. And no matter how hot it is you will usually find someone in them! Hot tubs are just so soothing and relaxing to the body that even in hot weather people are still inclined to get in them for a little while. But a hot tub doesn’t have to be hot; it can cool you down too, providing a completely different relaxing and soothing sensation!
Hot tubs run on a heater and you have the ability to adjust the temperature to your liking. Normal temperature ranges are from 80-104 degrees. With your body temperature already at 98.6 degrees, anything less than that will feel good to your body. Just like hot water in cooler weather, cool water in hot weather can be just as relaxing and refreshing!
There are a few ways to reduce the temperature of the water in your hot tub. You can simply turn the heater down to your desired temperature or turn off the heater completely and by keeping the jets running, the temperature will drop even more. Find the best temperature for you, it may be different depending on whether you get in your tub at night or during the day.
There’s no better way to cool off in the summer than to hop in some cool water and relax or to set the water to a comfortable temperature and enjoy a relaxing evening! Why waste your expensive investment by just letting it sit there all summer because you think it is too hot to get in!
