5 Easy DIY Projects to Complement Your Hot Tub

Create an at-home spa getaway for a restful staycation, without spending a ton of money at a brand-name store. Making a well-designed space that blends function and form is easier than you think. All you need is a hot tub and some vision.

1. Light and Fragrance
Start off with the easy stuff. Add ambience and fragrance to your soaks by placing candles or lanterns around your hot tub. Stringing lights along a pergola or fence can add charm, while also increasing visibility at night. Plants like citronella grass, lemon balm, rosemary, and lavender will act as natural aromatherapy, and will keep mosquitos away.

2. Privacy
Create separation of space with artful touches, like placing simple wooden fence posts around your tub and hang sheer fabric around the structure, creating the feeling of a personal sanctuary.

3. Seating

Get used dining room chairs from a thrift store (perhaps mismatched), saw off the legs, and attach the remainder of the chair (seat and backing) to a tree stump to create unique, outdoorsy seating.

4. Storage

Cover an aluminum tub with wood and a small tablecloth to provide an eating or drinking surface, with more space to keep pillows and towels. That way, you won’t have to abandon your guests to trek back into the house or search through your linen closet. Decorate and use plastic sand pails as receptacles for everything from silverware to wet bathing suits.

5. Steps and Walkways

Get some bright paint colors and decorate the steps leading to your hot tub. This is also a fun project to do with your kids—each child could paint a different area of the steps. Another idea is to use cut, treated lumber rounds or install large rocks to create natural steps for getting in and out. Practical, efficient solar lights and whimsical glow-in-the-dark paint will illuminate your path after the sun sets without adding to your energy bill.

Retrofit Your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Spa with CLEARRAY®

New Water System for Maintaining Fresh Water

Exciting news for Jacuzzi hot tub spa owners! Yes, you can get the innovative CLEARRAY Water System for pre-2012 hot tub models (going back to 2006). What’s special about CLEARRAY is that it uses UV-C technology to make water care virtually effortless, and it allows you to cut down on the use of sanitizing chemicals.

Contact your local dealer for information about purchasing a CLEARRAY aftermarket kit.

Imagine a system that treats waterborne pathogens without creating chemicals, odors or by-products. If you or your family members are sensitive to the effects of hot tub spa chemicals – dry, itchy skin and red eyes – you’ll enjoy your hot tub so much more with the CLEARRAY system. No more dryness or burning eyes. The ultraviolet germicidal disinfection that helps keep your Jacuzzi hot tub spa water clean and fresh won’t damage the hot tub spa equipment either.

A chart found in the latest Jacuzzi brochures compares CLEARRAY to ozone and salt systems. No surprise: CLEARRAY offers the most benefits in all seven categories. Use CLEARRAY in your hot tub spa along with the ProClear Mineral Cartridge and you’ll have the cleanest, softest water possible.

Download a brochure to learn more about the CLEARRAY Water System.

You don’t have to buy a brand-new Jacuzzi hot tub to take advantage of the best water system on the market. Ask your local dealer about the CLEARRAY aftermarket kit, and start spending more time in your hot tub and less time on maintenance.

Is Your Hot Tub Ready for Fall?

Jacuzzi owners already know this: when summer ends, hot tub usage heats up. The weather gets cooler, kids start new sports activities, and in general, everyone spends more time at home. It’s prime season for spas and hot tubs, so make sure yours is ready for action.

Prepare your hot tub for the cooler days ahead.

• Is your cover in good shape or is it time for a replacement? Your spa cover prevents leaves and dirt from getting into the water, and it keeps the heat inside to conserve energy.
• Start of a new season is a good time to check the filters – replace them if needed for maximum operating efficiency.
• Drain your spa for a thorough cleaning before serious winter weather sets in.
• Program your hot tub’s water temperature so it’s warm when you want to go in and in energy-saving mode at other times. The J-1000™ control system on the J-400™ Collection is the most advanced in the industry (super-easy to use, too).

Why you need hydrotherapy this fall.

• Has your workout routine changed from last summer, or are you just starting one? Hydro-massage soothes sore muscles and strains, and promotes flexibility.
• A 10-minute soak relaxes homework-stressed kids, and parents.
• When the days get shorter, immerse in a warm-water massage instead of holding down the sofa – you’ll probably sleep better afterwards.

People who own spas and hot tubs love to entertain outdoors in every season, too. Half-time during the game or last-minute Friday happy hour, you don’t have to make a big deal out of it – everyone enjoys a warm soak and good conversation.

Need supplies? How about a new cover or accessories? Contact your local Jacuzzi Hot Tubs dealer for genuine Jacuzzi parts and extras, or to see the latest models.

How Hydrotherapy Helps You Beat The Blues

Got the Blues? Hot Tub to a Happier Place

Let’s face it. Everybody feels a little gloomy or off-balance once in awhile, sometimes for no reason. My grandmother used to describe it as being “down in the dumps.” This may surprise you, but hydrotherapy can help us beat the blues!

I’m not talking about throwing a wild hot tub party (but go ahead, if that works for you). The combination of heat, buoyancy and massage that you experience in a Jacuzzi truly is hydro “therapy.” It can lift your spirits, coax you into a better frame of mind, and help your body function more smoothly.

Here’s how a Jacuzzi session can affect your mood in positive ways:

A hot tub lets you get away from it all. Spas and hot tubs are backyard escapes from the harried world of computers, cell phones and TV. Even a few moments of freedom from these typical stressors can give you the chance to slow down and find balance.

Physical warmth may improve emotional wellbeing, according to a series of Yale University studies. The studies cited evidence that when people feel lonely or isolated, they take long, warm baths and showers “to restore the missing warmth.” Spas and hot tubs have the same effect.

The relaxing properties of hydromassage can soothe anxiety and depression. Massage reduces levels of the stress hormone cortisol – too much can increase blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Massage can also boost the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, which can help relieve depression.*

There are many ways to lift your spirits and boost your body’s production of feel-good signals (chocolate is quick and easy!). Jacuzzi owners can take advantage of the naturally therapeutic benefits of warm-water massage every day.

*If you have feelings of sadness that last for more than a few days or interfere with your ability to carry out your daily routine, or enjoy activities you normally like, please consult a medical professional.


Can Hydrotherapy Help Arthritis?

Yes, hot tubs and spas can help you cope with the pain and stiffness caused by arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation recommends warm-water therapy, and research confirms its benefits.

Hot tubs and spas provide a type of hydrotherapy that is more effective than simply soaking in a warm bath. But not all tubs are created equal. Here are three ways Jacuzzi hydrotherapy helps arthritis sufferers:

1) Exclusive jets with full adjustability allow you to change the intensity of the hydro- massage for sensitive joints and muscles.

2) We design certain hot tubs and spas to be easier to get into and out of than typical models. You can add non-slip steps with handrails for safer accessibility.

3) Our seating is engineered to support the body comfortably in a variety of positions; from full-lounge seats to bench seating that allows you to sit upright with feet squarely on the bottom of the hot tub.

With Jacuzzi hydrotherapy, three elements – heat, buoyancy and massage – join forces to provide an effective hydrotherapy experience. Heat stimulates blood flow to stiff muscles and joints to help reduce inflammation and pain. Buoyancy, which lifts the effects of gravity on the body, takes the pressure off joints and offers support that makes it easier to move frozen joints. Massage loosens tightness and helps soothe the discomfort caused by arthritis.

To quote an article in Arthritis Today, the magazine of the Arthritis Foundation, “Research has shown warm water therapy works wonders for all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints, including fibromyalgia, arthritis and low back pain.” Hydrotherapy can also help you stay active, sleep better and fight depression –important benefits for many of us, including arthritis sufferers.
