20-minutes is all you need to feel renewed

If you're paying monthly gym fees but having a heck of a time getting there, here's a resource that can help. It's called "20-Minute Renewal" and it's FREE. Think of us as your personal mind-body recharging station.

Walking has been shown to offer significant health benefits. It’s also an exercise with the lowest dropout rate. So once you get started, you’ll be less likely to stop.

How Much Should I Walk?

The magic number is 10,000 steps, which equates to about five miles. You’ll see the number as a daily target goal in the recommendations of nearly any reputable health organization. Surprisingly, the 10,000 steps idea wasn’t originally based on scientific evidence but was started as part of a slogan by a Japanese pedometer company.

Since then, research has confirmed that 10,000 steps is indeed a milestone number that provides great health benefits.

To get the wellness benefits of their hot tubs in the summer, many owners soak in the cooler morning hours or in the evening as the heat of the day dissipates. Mornings in a hot tub offer a way to start the day refreshed, relaxed and limber, while evenings provide those benfits and a way to sleep better.

Yet when summer days really heat up, some people find it challenging to find a comfortable time to use their hot tub.

Until now.

Can I Use My Hot Tub To Stay Cool?

While many hot tub users prefer to keep their spa water hot year round, every summer, some users look for ways to cool down in their spas. Usually, that involves turning off the heater and letting the water slowly cool over time. Problem is, it can take a very long time for water temperature to drop on a hot day and just as long to warm back up.

Now Caldera Spas offers a way to cool down and get more use from your hot tub, even on a blistering summer day in Arizona.

When natural remedies were the only available options, warm-water immersion was the best solution for muscle and joint pain. Many hundreds of years later, it’s still considered a very effective treatment for a wide range of musculoskeletal issues - and a hot tub is one of the most convenient ways to get it.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, “Regular sessions in your hot tub keep joints moving. It restores and preserves strength and flexibility and also protects your joints from further damage.”

Why Does Warm Water Help Joints?

Because water is buoyant, it reduces gravity’s pull on joints. When submerged, the body weighs about 90 percent less. Weight and compression of the joints, which are often the cause of pain, are diminished while still providing 360-degree support. The warm water also raises body temperature and increases circulation, which encourages better movement.

There’s a great deal of attention on water conservation and smart water use, especially in areas of the country where rain or snowfall are below normal levels. Here are some tips to using your old spa water wisely.

The water in your hot tub can be recycled for use around your home, decreasing the amount of fresh water you need.

Here are answers to some common questions when it comes to recycling spa water:

Is Recycled Hot Tub Water Considered the Same As Water from a Tap?

No. Spa water is classified as “gray water,” similar to water from baths, showers and bathroom sinks.

Using gray water serves two purposes:

  1. It can the reduce amount of fresh water needed for some household tasks.
  2. It lessens the amount of water entering the waste treatment system.

Can Water From All Hot Tubs Be Recycled?

Some hot tub brands use salt water systems that may damage lawns or shrubs, so it’s not recommended for use on plants.

At first, it seems a little odd - you narrow down the list of hot tubs you’re interested in, then go to the dealer, slip into your swimsuit and climb into a hot tub, right there on the showroom floor.

If your dealer offers a test soak, take advantage of it. It's a great way to understand what you're buying and to compare models you're considering.

Of course, there are many factors to consider when learning about hot tub options, including brand reputation, quality, energy efficiency, customer service, warranty and projected daily operating costs. However, some impressions are best realized through experience.

OK, I’m in. It Feels Great. Now What?

Sure, enjoy the sensation and see how it feels to relax deeply. But you’re here to learn far more than that. 

Here’s what to look for as you test a hot tub:
