Hot Tub Magic for Valentine’s Day

If you have a hot tub , spa, Jacuzzi , or anything of that nature, now’s the time to have an excuse to use it as your wingman (or wingwoman)! If you want to wow that special someone, use your hot tub to its full potential! This week we’ll talk about ways to turn your partner’s head with how romantic you can be with the hot tub you already own!

    1. Hot TubChange the lights: Whether you have outdoor lights near the hot tub or you can change the lights in the hot tub with relative ease, consider using a red or pink bulb or filter to give the hot tub a special romantic feel. You can also add faerie lights or other light sources around the hot tub for added effect.
    2. Hot Tub Trays: Spent a little money and invest in something like a spa caddy or a floating tray. If you’re using the floating tray, consider loading it up with delicious things that are best served warm, but if you’re using a tray that attaches to the side of your spa your options are endless. Set up some wine or champagne, or set out his favorite beer with a delicate snack, or set up a stereo playing your favorite songs as a couple. Keep the romance close by so you can stay in the hot tub instead of getting out for a refill!
    3. Rose Petals: Lead her to the hot tub with a trail of rose petals to the hot tub where you’ve sprinkled a few petals (preferably fake) or some floating red, white, and pink items.
    4. Candles: Provides there’s enough ledge space (or nearby tables), consider lighting a few candles, especially scents like flowers or vanilla! Not only will they provide beautiful ambient light but they’ll smell amazing.
    5. Light show: Invest in a little gadget like this to make a quiet night more like a party! Have a double date in your hot tub with some wine, sparkling cider, champagne, or even beer. If you and your partner just want something a little more exciting than a basic hot tub with boring lights, surprise them with something snazzy like this.

  1. Bathing suits, towels, and other items: Surprise her with matching pool towels with hearts or embroidered with initials, or buy the two of you matching swim suits for the occasion. Lead them to the spa where you’ve placed new lounge pillows or padding to relax them after a long day of cooking, working, or shopping.
  2. Be there: Don’t just relax away silently, listen to your partner while you both let the jets soothe your aches and pains away. Relax into each other’s arms, sipping on champagne and giving each other massages. Even if you’re mad at the other person, don’t let it interfere with romantic hot tub time. Isn’t that why you installed it in the first place?

Above Ground Hot Tub Vs. In Ground Hot Tub!

Above Ground Hot Tub Vs. In Ground Hot Tub!

Hot tubs are great for cold nights (if you use it regularly, otherwise consider winterization) and they’re also very soothing and relaxing year-round. If you’re considering installing a hot tub at any time (especially with Spring coming right around the corner, with Summer right behind) read further and decide which type is best for you.

  • Initial cost of an above ground hot tub ranges from $3,000 to $12,000 with a monthly cost ranging from $20-$30 (meaning very little effort involved in maintenance).
  • 30-70 jets and ergonomic seating for maximum comfort.
  • This style of hot tub is usually placed close to the home (usually within close proximity of a door) which means in states with mild weather, users are more likely to use it year round. Also, they are not uncommon for homes with small yard space (not enough space for a full pool and in-ground spa).
  • Warranties for parts and labor can last for up to 5 years.
  • No preheating needed for most units.
  • Covers are usually large and heavy, meaning some users may have trouble lifting on their own.

  • Initial cost ranges between $5,000 and $25,000. They tend to be high maintenance and can easily cost more than $30/month to run.
  • Fewer jets and usually simple seating options with minimal “ergonomic” designs.
  • Usually placed next to (if not nearly connected to) a pool, so the distance between the house and hot tub is usually further than above ground units, leading to a greater need to winterize the unit. They can be placed closer to the home, but it is unusual since most owners of an in ground hot tub also have a pool.
  • Warranties for parts and labor are usually for one year only (so ask about extended warranties when possible).
  • These units often need to be preheated, further adding to the desire to winterize the unit because the hassle of using it year round.
  • Covers often operate using an attached bar with a level system—very easy to remove.

Overall, above ground hot tub are often chosen by clients wanting something to use year-round due to the lower initial cost and the lower monthly costs and greater default warranties. Those who choose the in ground units often just want an extra water feature to use periodically and are not interested in the large number of jets provided in above ground units. Those seeking therapeutic usage of a hot tub may want to consider an above ground unit.
