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.

MADE IN AMERICA

LinkedIn-American-MadeDid you hear? A Tariff is causing Solar Panels to be manufactured in the United States. Question is, could this force Spa Companies to move back to the US, raise prices, and lose key retail price points? Most of the time, it is not worth the risk.

In reality, Americans rather buy USA made products and don’t mind paying more for it. This provides jobs for future generations and guarantees safer and fair working conditions. Let’s dive more deep into this subject matter. This encourages our American Independence.

Products made in America will build and maintain a stable, Growth-oriented workforce economy. It will boost American investment opportunities. Our own selves can guarantee the quality of goods, and reduce deficit. It is ideal to avoid foreign political debates, which outsourcing causes!

American made products sounds like a no-brainer! We can protect our environment because we know how we are manufacturing our products. Our friends and family will be working in a safer setting. The quality of our goods enhances since they are within our reach.

LA Country Fair 2017 Round Up

The annual county fair is the perfect opportunity to reminisce on the old days, carnival rides, cotton candy, deep fried anything, and some good old fashion family fun. This year, the LA County Fair is providing that same good-feeling fun for the 95rd year in a row. Cal Spas has been part of the LA County Fair since it’s inauguration, 39 years ago!

Here’s an LA County Fair Round-Up in Photos:

Winterizing Your Hot Tub

In many areas of the country, the temperature drops below 32°F (0°C). We recommend that you always have your spa full of water and running at normal spa temperatures (80°F to 100°F, 26.7°C to 37.8°C). This will help reduce the risk of freezing in your spa and your spa’s equipment.

Warning: If you find the need to drain your spa, be aware of the potential of freezing in your spas equipment and plumbing. Even if the directions below are followed perfectly, there is no guarantee that your spa will not suffer freeze damage. Freeze damage is not covered by your warranty.

  1. Open all filter covers.
  2. Remove the filter baskets and filters.
  3. Drain your spa completely as described in the instructions above.
  4. Vacuum water from the spa’s main drain fitting with a wet/dry vacuum.
  5. Remove drain plugs from the front of the pumps.
  6. Disconnect the unions from both sides of the pump.
  7. Blow any remaining water out of the jets and equipment area with the wet/dry vacuum.
  8. Cover your spa with a good spa cover and an all-weather tarp to ensure that neither rain nor snow enters the spa

Note:  All manifolds are plumbed in series directly to the main drain (see example at right), making it easier to remove water and reducing the possibility of freeze damage.

Why Swim Spas

Swim Pro Swim & Fitness Spas, by Cal Spas, are an excellent solution for an at home aquatic exercise, and make the perfect alternative to any in-ground swimming pool. Rather than choosing between a pool and a hot tub, gain the benefits of both.

Our Swim Spas are designed to be enjoyed by the entire family —whether swimming, relaxing, or enjoying playtime. Unique features, such as sound systems and hydro-streamers, can create a wonderful ambiance in any yard.

For individuals suffering from joint issues or arthritis, a Swim Spa can provide a low impact workout, to keep the body active without the unnecessary stress. Adjustable jets allow swimmers to control the speed, allowing for faster-paced swims and slower-paced swims to work on form.

Additional Cal Flex spa equipment allows you to build muscle mass and increase your endurance. This equipment is bungee and resistance training, providing a solid workout with a much lower impact than traditional weight training regimens.

Each spa also includes dedicated therapy jets which deliver hydrotherapy to key point areas. Cal Spas leads the way in giving users an unrivaled comfort, relaxation, and aquatic massage experience.

Practice Self-care with Our Hot Tubs

If you keep up with blog content on the Internet, then you have probably read the term “self-care” somewhere, at some point. “Self-care” is, essentially, a term used to describe how you take care of yourself. It’s about taking the time to check in with you, and asking yourself what do I need in this moment?

As self-care has become a prominent topic both on and offline, more and more lists of hobbies and activities, of recommendations and prescriptions, have surfaced. Cal Spas is here to add our recommendation to your list of self-care habits—dip into warm water.

Warm water immersion is nothing new. It’s been around for ages, and for good reason: warm water tends to relieve many different types of pain.

According to the Arthritis Foundation’s website, warm water immersion “reduces the force of gravity that’s compressing the joint, offers 360-degree support for sore limbs, can decrease swelling and inflammation and increase circulation.”

The American Psychological Association (APA) estimates that millions of people suffer from chronic stress, meaning that millions of people have muscles in a constant tense state. Their website states that this chronic stress causes issues in multiple systems in the body, such as your respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems.

A Cal Spas hot tub can help you take care of you. Immersing yourself in the warm waters of one of our hot tubs can help combat pain in joints, as well as relieve tension in muscles. If you could combat stress and better your health, why wouldn’t you?

Have You Heard About Our Adjustable Therapy System™?

Here at Cal Spas, we understand that relaxation is one of your top priorities when it comes to buying a hot tub. That’s why Cal Spas offers our exclusive Adjustable Therapy System™ (ATS). The ATS has 7 massage patterns to choose from, allowing you to target specific problem areas for the ultimate relaxation therapy.

Each ATS comes with a dedicated control panel that is installed at arm’s length to choose a massage pattern directly from the ATS seat. The warm spa water and powerful jets will soothe muscle aches and joint pain.

The ATS has its own dedicated pump, which allows you to operate the ATS jets rather than running all the jets in the spa. This means your spa will run more efficiently, and at a lower cost.

The ATS is available as a standard feature on the Platinum™ Spas, and is a premium option on the Escape™ Spas, Escape Plus™ Spas, Platinum Plus™ Spas, and the Swim Pro™ Swim & Fitness Spas.

Arthritis Relief
Water buoyancy greatly relieves joints and muscles of constant pressure. According to the Arthritis Foundation, doctors recommend soaking in warm water before starting your day to help relieve the pain associated with arthritis. Additionally, warm water temporarily relieves stiffness and joint aches, increasing flexibility.

Improved Sleep
Hydrotherapy before bedtime may assist in getting a more restful night of sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends soaking in hot water before sleeping due to the associated calming effects. When exiting the spa, the body’s internal thermostat drops and signals the mind that it is time to sleep. Both effects result in a truly refreshed morning without the grogginess that sleep aids can leave behind.
