What to Consider When Adding A Hot Tub To Your Bathroom

13 September 2020



Nowadays, hot tubs spas boast an array of exciting features, from LED lighting to in-built televisions. However, the most important aspect is always the hot tub’s jetting system. This is where the relaxation and health benefits come from, and so it is vital to have a better understanding of the different options that are available. 

If you look at a hot tub, you will see that there are small holes where the water comes out. These are known as water jets. A jet-like action occurs when the heated water is forced through these holes. Nevertheless, what a lot of people fail to consider when buying hot tubs and spas as part of their bath renovations is the fact that there are many different types of jets to choose from. In this post, we are going to talk about some of the most popular so that you get a better understanding.

Let’s begin with foot jets and neck jets. You can probably gather by the names that these jets are targeted at certain body areas. Foot jets are highly beneficial because all of your nerves end in your feet, and thus more and more people are looking for high-quality hot tubs with foot jets included.

On the other hand, neck jets tend to be incorporated in all tubs, irrespective of the quality or price range. They can be extremely relaxing and they can help to ease headaches. You then have pulsating jets, which provide a gentle massage, as well as air jets, which create a soft tissue massage effect by emitting air down your lower back and legs.

Finally, rotating jets supply water in a rotating action whereas directional jets are the opposite of this, making them the most basic type of jet.

Important Efficiency Elements

When purchasing spas and hot tubs for your home, one of the most important aspects you need to consider is efficiency. The last thing you want to do is buy a hot tub that costs you a fortune to run. Keeping that in mind, we are going to take a look at the different elements that impact efficiency.

The first thing you need to consider is the hot tub’s insulation. Your requirements regarding this will depend on whether you are looking for indoor or outdoor hot tubs. If the latter applies, insulation will be exceptionally important. This is crucial because the better insulated your hot tub is, the less you will need to spend when it comes to your utility bills. There are two different techniques that are used for hot tub insulation.

The first one is the Full Foam technique, which involves using a combination of low and high-density foam to fill the dead air space inside the hot tub’s inner compartment. The other option is the Dead Air Space technique, which is based on the principle that insulated and enclosed air space will ensure the hot air is trapped inside. Aside from this, when buying hot tubs and spas, the pump and motor play a vital role in efficiency. Don’t be misguided into believing horsepower rating is the most important aspect, as water flow control is crucial. After all, if you have an inefficient jet and plumping system, it won’t matter that you have a turbo-charged pump to propel the water through. Finally, it is imperative to invest in a hot tub water to ensure the heat does not rise into the atmosphere.
