Hot Tub Cover Replacement - March 23, 2012
This morning while going out to use my hot tub, I had to ask myself why I was doing exactly what I warn my customers against doing. I got a very clear picture of why it's best to replace your tub's cover before it gets so heavy you need a crane to lift it for you!
Lately I'd been noticing the cover getting harder and harder to maneuver. Today to my dismay I found that after using the tub last night the cover had not been put back on correctly and now I could see steam escaping out the corner ... hard earned money rolling into the atmosphere! Not only was my money rapidly disappearing but now my time was being wasted, while at the same time my back was experiencing a severe wrenching trying to get the cover off. After deciding my morning soak was foiled and not going to happen because there was no way I could get the cover off myself, I decided to at least try to get the cover on the tub so the heat was sealed in. After struggling for some time out in the icy cold my body felt like the icicles that had formed all the way around the cover!
I wondered to myself how many times people make the same crazy mistake and really don't realize that the cover, which does such hard work keeping their spa hot and ready to use, needs to be replaced when it starts showing signs of age. Once the cover starts showing those signs, it's not long before it becomes a huge inconvenience that is costing time spent enjoying the tub and money wasted ... money that could be better spent towards a new cover!!
When replacing your tub's cover it's important that you get a quality product. Not all covers are made equal and although they may be less expensive they may not be a good investment.

Enhance Your Soak - February 03, 2012
A warm soak in your Hot Spring or Caldera spa is the perfect way to relax and enjoy after you’ve shoveled the drive for the 3rd time in a day, spent time snowmobiling or ice skating with the kids, or spent the day on the slopes enjoying our much awaited snow this winter! There’s just something about warming up while soaking in the hot tub enjoying a good cup of coffee, tea, or maybe a Hot Toddy while the beautiful crystal flakes of winter blanket the earth.
The right accessories can help make your soak even more enjoyable and safe. There are a number of great items to enhance your time spent in the tub. How about a cover lifter to make taking your spa cover off and on simple and easy? Or maybe a new step would make it easier to enter the spa. Want something to hold on to while getting in and out? A Safety Rail is the perfect solution to carefree entry. If you find it hard to find a place to lay your towel you might want to consider a towel bar that mounts to the tub. Light Sconces can add ambiance as well as provide a little added safety while heading to the tub. Maybe you need a bar or table to sit your reading material, glasses, and drink on. Don’t forget you don’t want to use glass in or around the hot tub and get some stylish acrylic glassware that will be much safer to use while soaking. And good music and a little aroma therapy are a great formula for a delightfully, warm, relaxing evening in the hot tub!
Stop in to see all the latest in great accessories for your spa and don’t forget to enjoy these snow filled evenings in the bubbling warm comfort of your hot tub! You’ll feel better for doing it!!
