Soothing Pain Relief
When is comes to treating sore muscles, no other hot tub manufacturer compares to American Spas. Our hot tubs are designed to deliver targeted hydrotherapy to muscle groups to effectively relieve pain.

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.

Now is the perfect time to surprise Dad with a hot tub from Cal Spas.

maxresdefault

You can celebrate a fun and exciting 4th of July with friends, family and your Cal Spas hot tub.  Plan a day full of tasty food, amazing activities and the thrill of fireworks.

Get Your Cal Spas Hot Tub Ready

Crystal clear water is the first step in preparing your backyard gathering.  It’s important to make sure your water has the right chemical levels and the filters are clean and working properly.  When there are a large number of people enjoying the hot tub bacteria is more likely to grow.  Cal Spas offers some of the best filtration systems in the industry to combat issues with water cleanliness and to ensure maximum protection against harmful build up.  The latest innovation is the Dually™ Pump System that uses 50% less energy with double the power.

The night prior to your event make sure jets are turned on and water is circulating to ensure your water is an inviting addition to the festivities.

Invite Friends & Family! The More the Merrier

The backyard will be a bevy of activity, so don’t worry about inviting more people than your hot tub can accommodate.  Make sure you have plenty tables and chairs to allow your guest to socialize while others are relaxing in the hot tub.  Since it is recommended that time in a hot tub is limited to 15 minutes, guest will be able to have a good time in and out of the water.

Card games, games of wit and interesting conversation will keep your guest involved with the party and give many options for their enjoyment.

Time to Eat

It’s time to break-out the grill and serve up a variety of delicious choices for your guest.  Cal Flame offers grills that do everything from grill fabulous meats to baking sweet desserts. Their product line-up also includes beautiful islands that make outdoor food preparation a breeze.  The skies the limit with what your menu can consist of.  Think outside of the box and give your guest delicious food that will keep your backyard party on their minds for the rest of the year.

Snacks and finger foods are a wonderful way to keep guest happy and in good spirits while the meat is smoking on the grill.  Mouth-watering treats are always welcomed and should be plentiful during the party.  Prepping food a few days early will allow you to enjoy the party with your guest and make sure all of your detailed work is already completed such as seasoning and marinating meat, cutting vegetable and fruit, and putting together salads.

4th of july

Remember people love snacks so have plenty on hand.  Backyard gatherings should always include some of the basics such as chips & dip, color themed candy, and fruit such as blue berries, watermelon and strawberries with whipped cream to make your table look colorful and patriotic.

Refreshing Drinks

It’s important to keep plenty of water on hand for your guest especially those enjoying the hot tub.

There are plenty of delicious party punches that can be served to keep the fun going and make the day a blast.  Also offer non-alcoholic fruit drinks, sodas and once again the ever important water!  If you really want to do something fun make refreshing fruit smoothies for minors or non-alcoholic drinkers and ad just a splash of liquor to turn up the recipe and create a delicious frozen treat with a kick.

It is recommended that you use plastic cups rather than glasses at a hot tub party; accidents happen and you don’t want anyone breaking a glass in or near your hot tub.

FourthofJuly

It’s Time to Party!

Now that you have invited your guest, created the menu, chose your games and activities and made your drink choice it’s time to get the music going and start the party.  Cal Spas hot tubs and CalFlameIslands offer state of the art sound systems that work with your iPod or iPhone to help create the perfect party environment.

“Cal Spas™ is the Best” According to Customers

Cal Spas™ continues a tradition of customer satisfaction:

Cal Spas is by far the best hot tub. A few of my friends have other brands and I don’t have any of the issues they have. They have problems with water, broken pumps and heaters, things I don’t have to deal with. I have a Connect 750B and love it. It hasn’t ever missed a beet or had any problems. I would strongly recommend only buying this brand if you want years of reliability and comfort. Hope this helps…D Sandler, Portland, OR

How a Swim Spa was the Perfect Solution to this Couples Swimming Pool Woes!

cal-spas-splash-photo-7-091813-8

Two summers ago my wife and I were thinking about getting an in ground pool for our back yard. As usual she did the research and we called a pool company to come out and take a look at our yard. Our back yard has a steep slope down to the river behind us and we knew we’d be looking at a few challenges. After meeting with the rep from the pool company and talking with a landscaper that specializes in pool landscapes we decided the cost wasn’t worth it. The retaining wall would cost almost as much as the pool itself. Then my wife had another one of her brainstorms. She suggested we look into swim spas! This was yet another great idea.

A swim spa is not a hot tub nor is a swim spa a pool. A swim spa marries together the best qualities of the two. It has jetted seats like a hot tub and a deeper end where you can swim against powerful jets located on the opposite end from the seats. A swim spa offers the best of both worlds AND is designed to be used year round no matter where you live. To me it’s a no brainer that offers so much more than either of the other two options.

The companies who manufacture swim spas have taken everything necessary into consideration. They have thoughtfully designed the plumbing and electronics to be both powerful and efficient. When you sit in a jetted seat of a swim spa you’ll notice right away that the jets are much more powerful than a regular hot tub. If you want to swim against the current you’ll discover a real workout. This is because of the pump design that uses two motors that make two zones. Each motor can be turned up or down to your desired strength of current or jets. This makes for an even better spa experience because you can adjust both motors to give you a relaxing hot tub experience with a combination of jets and the water current. It can be like sitting in a river with a strong current and a hot tub at the same time! A swim spa is whisper quiet and easier to maintain than a swimming pool. The use of chemicals is minimal.

You can use your swim spa as a complete workout system. You can swim against the current or you can use that current for low impact exercise. There are several positions you can use to rehabilitate from surgeries or injuries. You can also get the optional workout package that includes various equipment to maximize your workout. The swim spa is quite possibly the best mechanism you can use for your exercise regimen!

Treadmill Swimming

After our research was done we started things moving. We found a Swim Spa dealer and went to their showroom and asked ten thousand questions. We were lucky to find a salesperson who knew the product inside and out. There are several sizes to choose from, each with options to consider like LED lighting, sound systems and shell finish. The lengths vary and you can select between the standard or over-the-top swim spa and hot tub combination. 

Once we selected the swim spa that was right for us, the next step was to coordinate with an electrician and someone who could pour a cement slab. We were able to have a cement pad poured and an electrician out to do the necessary wiring quickly; our swim spa was delivered and working in a short period of time.

These days I simply can’t imagine my life without my swim spa. Last summer we turned the heat off and were able to use it on hot days as a refreshing way to beat the heat. There is no better way to relax after mowing the lawn or working in the garden than to sit back and let the water rehabilitate your body. This winter we’ve left the heat right around 100 degrees. We jump in and let the steam swirl around us while we’re warm and toasty. The beautiful thing is when you get out of the spa, it can be ten degrees outside and it doesn’t bother you. Your body retains the heat from the water. We have a heated towel rack that we throw our bath robes over, so when we get out of the spa we have warm robes waiting for us. While we’re in our spa we’re able to look out and enjoy all of the wildlife that living on a river brings to us and that makes the experience even better!

How to Turn your Hot Tub into a Cool Summer Spa

familyfun2-07During the hot summer months hot tub owners often put the cover on their hot tub and leave it unused until the cooler months roll back around. Many people have overlooked a simple solution that would make their spas a wonderful summer gathering spot for friends and family. 

I’m happy to tell you that converting your hot tub into a refreshing summer spa can be done in a few easy steps. By turning down the heat, or turning offthe heater entirely and draining some of the warm water; replacing it with cool water to provide a refreshing summer spa you’re sure to create a favorite spot for relaxing and socializing in your own backyard.

Keeping the water cool can be done by using your cover and insulation to keep the cool temperature locked in. We know that water warms slower than the air outside therefore the water will continue to be cooler longer. If you keep your spa cover on during the day when you’re not using it and at night, remove it leaving the air jets running to drop the temperature a few more degrees you will keep a cool comfortable temperature throughout the hot summer months.

Draining your hot tub during the summer is a bad idea, so why not utilize it and make it a functional part of your summer fun. By keeping water in your spa it keeps the seals moist which prevents cracking. Water that is moving keeps the water clear and the pipes in good condition; standing water without movement can increase your chance of corrosion causing costly problems later.

Use your hot tub all year round by making easy adjustments as the seasons change. You will love it and your family will have a new way to enjoy the fun summer months.

How to be the perfect hostess: The 5 senses are key for your girls’ night in the hot tub party

1. Sense of Touch. Be sure your Cal Spas hot tub is the perfect temperature 102-104 is right for most people. Too hot and a 20 minute dip will zap your energy and your guests’. Too cold and a soak won’t feel relaxing.  Leave the cover on until your guests arrive so the water will be that perfect temperature.

2. Sense of Smell.  Be sure your hot tub water is clean and odorless to start with. The only scent your guests should encounter is an aromatherapy blend  Select one that goes with the theme of your party.

3. Sense of Sight. Your hot tub lighting is designed to “set a mood”.  Have the lights on when your guests arrive so that when you lift the cover your hot tub will look super inviting.

4. Sense of  Sound. The sound of moving water is always soothing when coming from a hot tub fountain. Add music from your ipod for the evening.

5. Sense of Taste. Let your creativity run wild. Try chocolate covered strawberries and bananas. Finger foods are a must for hot tub snacking. Save any fork or spoon foods and alcohol for after soaking. Serve chilled San Pellegrino with a twist in the tub. And, use plastic glasses & plates, please, to avoid broken glass.
