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.

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.
