How does stress affect your health?

Learning to cope with stress is a challenge we all must face. As humans, we have different stressors throughout our lifetime and it is up to us to decide our coping methods.

It is good to cope in a healthy way to release negative thoughts and feelings and that is where Cal Spas Hydrotherapy comes in. Hydrotherapy is a great way to cope with stress for many reasons you can find here.

So the question is… “How does stress affect your health?”

Headaches- The tension created in your muscles when stressed can cause headaches.

Insomnia – Stress will make it hard to fall asleep due to over thinking

Irritated digestive tract – Stress affects your body’s Digestive System, therefore, it can lead to stomach aches, nausea, and even irritated bowel syndrome.

Lower your immune system – Long-term stress weakens your immune system leaving you more vulnerable to infections.

Create foggy thinking – Stress can wear you down emotionally and can cause depression.

Muscles feel fatigued – Stress makes muscles tense and can lead to backaches and headaches.

Stress is a natural physical and mental reaction to what we are experiencing and everyone goes through it. Master your lifestyle and you will master your thoughts which will master your stress levels.

Great ways to cope with stress are to first identify unhealthy coping methods and stop those bad habits. Additionally, stay active and do not stop moving. Dance by yourself or with friends, take a walk in nature and go to exercising classes or the gym. Get involved with your community or join a club. And the biggest coping method is your attitude. Your attitude is everything. The better your attitude the easier life becomes. And oh! don’t forget to stop to smell the flowers on your nature walk…

Benefits of Using Hot Water and Hydrotherapy to Heal Your Body

When our heart rate goes up, our hearts pump faster to pump more blood per stroke in order to transport needed oxygen and nutrients throughout the body. Doing light exercises in hot water will heal you because healing begins when blood flow increases on the injured location.

Immersion increases circulation – When you are in the water, your heart pumps faster, your BPM increases. Therefore, your heart is pumping harder and your circulation will increase. Your arteries and veins dilate to carry more blood. Please check with your doctor if you have high blood pressure. 

Water relieves pressure on our body – When your body is soaking in hot water, dopamine is released which causes immediate relaxation. Soaking in hot water is a healthy way to cope because it will also relieve anxiety, stress, pain, and fatigue.

The buoyancy of the water reduces the amount of weight we bear on our joints due to gravity – Take off the pressure and regroup your mind and body by floating in the water and moving around slowly. Close your eyes and dream or even meditate about the pleasures that life has to offer. 

Increase flexibility, joint mobility, and range of motion – Stretching in hot water (hot tub yoga) is a great way to build your core strength. Stretching in hot water will also remove the lactic acid build up in the muscles that cause your muscles to be sore. Drink water after you stretch to help remove the toxins in your body.

Immersing in a Cal Spas Hot Tub will ultimately allow you to heal. Wind down from a long day and rest your mind and body. Treat yourself every evening. Easily adjust your mindset to be more positive considering you are more relaxed. Reconnect with your friends and family. Soaking in a Cal Spas Hot Tub is a healthy habit that can heal and relax you.

What You Need To Know Before You Buy a Hot Tub

Before you buy a Cal Spas Hot Tub or Swim Spa it is important to understand what goes into the process. Key factors are location, electricity, budget, warranty, the right spa, and finding the right dealer. Here is a guide to consider before you buy:

Choose a location

  • A leveled foundation is crucial – Cement with minimum 4.5 inches THICK is recommended.
  • Walkway to the spa is advised for easy and safe access in and out of the spa. Also, it will help keep your spa clean from dirt and debris when you enter the spa.
  • Access for delivery is a must when placing a spa. Using a spa delivery service is recommended. In some cases, you may need to use a crane to get your spa or swim spa into your backyard.
  • Make room for drainage. Depending on how often you use your spa we recommend you change your spa water every 2-4 months.
  • If you decide to put your spa indoors choose a space with proper ventilation.

Consult an Electrician

  • A licensed electrician is advised to consult your backyard and see what is needed to safely set up your spa.
  • Check if your electric box will handle the usage of volts. Hot Tubs can take 120V or 240V depending on the spa.

Create your budget

  • Luxury requires constant maintenance; therefore it is good to keep in mind the upcoming factors you need to consider before purchasing a spa.
  • To keep the spa hot, it will take more electricity, to heat your spa. Check with your local city to see how the usage will affect your electric bill.
  • Is it best to finance or pay cash? Cal Spas offers a spa for each lifestyle at every price point. Cal Spas makes it affordable and budget-friendly for you to create your backyard oasis. If you finance, do your research and find the best lender for your decision.

How to Clean Your Hot Tub | Cal Spas

Once you place your Cal Spas Hot Tub in your backyard oasis it is up to you to maintain the spa to keep it in great condition. Here are the steps to show you how to properly maintain your spa with ease.

Keep Your Spa Covered Daily

Keep Your Spa Covered- Keep your hot tub cover on after each use. Covered spas will use less electricity in maintaining your set temperature. Covering your spa will protect your spa’s finish from the sun’s ultraviolet rays. You are required to keep the spa covered to maintain warranty coverage. Covering your spa helps prevent children from drowning.

See the manual enclosed with your cover for instructions on mounting the locks and how to lock and unlock the cover.

In addition, while the spa cover is rigid, it is not designed to support any weight. Therefore, as a safety precaution and to preserve the life of your cover, you must not sit, stand, or lie on it, nor should you place objects of any kind on top of it

Check the water temperature and adjust as necessary – If you notice extreme changes in the temperature, it could indicate a system issue.

Check for damage to the cover and spa – Staying aware of your spa is key to keeping your spa in great condition.

Weekly and before each use

Test the Spa Water – You can use Reagent Test Kits, which is a method that provides a high level of accuracy. It is available in Liquid form or Tablet form. Another option is Test Strips, which is convenient and common for spa holders. You want to balance the total alkalinity, calcium hardness, and the pH.

For more details on maintaining spa water click here.

Keep the spa clean by wiping down any debris – you want to keep clear of anything that will cause contamination

Every 2 – 4 months

Change water – If you use your spa often, change the spa water every two months. If you occasionally use your spa water, change it every 4 months.

Click on the links below for in-depth instructions:

Drain your spa

Clean the filter

Refill your spa with fresh water

Once a year

Replace your filter – We recommend you replace your filter about once a year, depending on your spa usage and bather load. Before you place a new filter in your spa, make sure you remove the plastic wrapper. Soak the filter a minimum of 24 hours before you insert it in the filter well.

Never use a filter too small for your spa’s water capacity!

If you need a replacement filter visit http://quickspaparts.com.

Clean your Hot Tub Cabinet – Keep your panels wiped down and clean for the outdoors. Check for cosmetic or structural damage in case you need to maintain the panels.

If you go on Vacation

  1. Set the spa to Sleep Mode. (See your owner’s manual for changing modes.)
  2. Adjust the pH. Click Here For More Information
  3. Shock the water (add either chlorine or bromine sanitizer.
  4. When you return, check and adjust the pH and shock the water.
  5. If you will not be using your spa for longer than 14 days and a spa maintenance service is not available, we strongly recommend you drain or winterize your spa.

ALWAYS lock your cover using the cover locks if you plan to be away from home and the spa is filled with water.

Plan your Maintenance

Use a Reminder App and Set Reminders – it is always helpful to keep track using your phone. This way everything is at your fingertips.

Use a Tangible or Digital Calendar – keeping a calendar to remind yourself exactly what happened the last time you checked your spa. This way you can get a clear understanding of the patterns and what to expect throughout the years as you maintain your spa.

Use a Dry Erase board to keep track of the Schedule – using a sign in your living room or kitchen is a great way to remind yourself of what you need to do next in order to keep your spa healthy and functioning seamlessly.

Great spa water is easily achieved when the right chemicals are used and a Clear Water Plan is implemented. The key to clean, clear, safe water is to fully understand how spa water reacts to users, operation and chemicals. This Clear Water Plan will help give you everything you need to know.

So you may ask, how does Fall enhance my hot tub?

Entertain Guests in Style

Relieve Holiday Stress

Planning parties and getting ready for holiday festivities are always stressful, but yet super fun. A great way to unwind from festivities is having your friends and family unwind with you in a Cal Spas Hot Tub or Swim Spa. Even better, when the party is over you are able to escape into your outdoor oasis and rejuvenate for the next day.

Winterize your Hot Tub Winterizing your spa for the season draining it, cleaning it, and protecting it from the effects of freezing weather can be a complicated and time-consuming procedure. In many cases, it’s better for the health of your hot tub to keep it running. Your spa will not freeze overnight unless the water stops circulating and you live in -30° F. If your spa looses power, and assuming there is a cover with reasonable insulation, you will have at least a few days before water starts to freeze. In fact, keeping up your spa maintenance in winter has special advantages; follow a few tips to keep your spa in prime condition. Here are 5 maintenance tips to keep you up to date and your spa running smoothing all winter long.

  1. Invest in a Good Cover.
  2. Keep the Water Clean.
  3. Monitor the Water Level.
  4. Turn Down the Jets.
  5. Change Your Water Early.

Benefits of Owning a Private Spa | Cal Spas #1 Manufacturer

Cal Spas offers luxury products for you to keep for many years. With proper maintenance and protection, you are bound to sustain your private oasis. So what really is the advantage of having your own spa?

First, it’s the privacy! For years and years, you have dreamt of creating a sanctuary where you can come home after a long day and feel like you are in your own element. Having a place to escape in a healthy manner is your ticket to a better lifestyle. Massaging your all your senses by spending time in fresh air and nature. Allowing yourself to immerse in a warm tub with a blanket of bubbles hugging your body is the ultimate goal.

Second, we are the #1 hydrotherapy manufacturer. We pay attention to all the details to make sure we give you the purest experience. By using hydrotherapy to decompress, you are improving your blood circulation, relieving pain, and reducing anxiety. Rejuvenating your mind, body, and soul will cause you to be happier and think more clearly ultimately benefiting your lifestyle.

Third, our jets are unsurpassed! Cal Spas exclusive Velocity Jets and Candy Cane Jets will target soft tissue and deep tissue muscles. By owning a Cal Spas Hot Tub you are not settling for basic jets that burst out water, we got the hydrotherapy jets down to a science.

Here is a display of the Veranda 422B, our spa comes ready to use with a plug n play kit. This convenient kit reduces installation costs since you can simply plug in your spa and soak – saving you money! With a plug n play spa, you eliminate a technician, as the tub comes with a simple 3-prong 110v cord that can plug into any outlet. Additionally, a plug and play hot tub is not hard-wired into a permanent outside box. Which makes it easier to take with you if you decide to move. The Veranda can be indoor or outdoor depending on your set up. Fits up to 2 people and is ideal for empty nesters.

Here are some reasons to stay away from Public Spas:

Recreational water illnesses (RWI) are not uncommon problems: They can happen in the ocean, in local swimming holes, in public pools, and yes, even in hot tubs. Always bathe with soap after you use a public swimming area.

Weird smell in the air: Try the sniff test. If the water has a weird smell, do not go in. This is a sign they are not properly taking care of their water.

Excessive foam: If mounds of foam are still floating on the water when the jets are turned off, don’t get in. That means the water hasn’t been filtered correctly and probably needs sanitizing.

Bio-film: If you notice a strange odor, cloudy water, slime, floating debris, the hot tub is contaminated. Regular sanitizers will not help, and this means the pipes and filter needs to be checked and solved.

Thick Water: Skin lotion, sunscreen, hair products, and sweat deplete chlorine levels in any body of water. Then there’s the potential of other contaminants, like urine bathers secretly release (which they incorrectly assume is harmless). All of these contaminants can rob chlorine of its potency, while not infectious; can cause irritation of the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract.

Public Spas have the potential to not be safe but its best to pay attention and make the best choice for you.
