Hot Tubs: All The Little Things You Want To Know

By on April 4, 2013

A hot tub is a large tub made of ceramic, acrylic, wood, or another substance used for recreation or physical therapy. In the past, the Romans are the most famous for their bathhouses, however other cultures also made use of spa-like hot baths, including the ancient peoples of China and Japan.

We have to admit that hot tubs are really expensive not only in purchasing them but in operating, too. Today, hot tubs and home spas became a new trend in the business as the manufacturing of materials have become better and cheaper.

We are living in the era where the medical science has become more advanced. As a result, there has been an increased awareness of the benefits of hot tub hydrotherapy. Arthritis, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, joint problems, chronic back pain, etc are some of the medical conditions treated with the regular use of hot tub hydrotherapy.

These are all made possible by the modern materials and production processes in designing and building home spas and hot tubs with highly specialized hydrotherapy features such as the seating position, jet position and jet function. First is seating position. It is the traditional hot tub seating was bench-style, typically in a round shape and at a uniform depth so that everyone sat at the same level in the tub. Second is jet position.

With the help of moldable shell, you can place jets in nearly any position within the tub. In the past, jets are difficult to use because they were single-action nozzles with limited ability to adjust where they were aimed or the intensity of the jet action. However, as time goes by, the functionality of these jets became more advanced and developed. And lastly is the jet function.

Modern hot tubs and spas can be customized with a surprising variety of jets that range from multi-purpose to highly specialized. There is a variety of jets to select from and it is your choice which jets you’ll install in specific locations within the hot tub or home spa. Swirl jets, produce water swirls in a circular pattern and it is wide range, whirlpool jets, large-round jets however it has a specific range, mini jets, smaller than standard jets, pillow jets, it is for the neck with a pillow designed to let the bather rest their head without going under water, shoulder jets, it is for the specified range of the shoulder, and moving massage jets, oval-shaped jet that provides pulsating therapy are some of the most common types of jets used.

On the other hand, there is a new generation of home spas commonly called as swim spas is elongated in shape and allows the bather to choose traditional spas functions.
