5 Ways to Stay Cool in Your Hot Tub

5 Ways to Stay Cool in Your Hot Tub

Don’t retire your Cal Spas Hot Tub because the weather is scorching hot! Check these 5 ways that you can stay cool in your hot tub.

1) Lower the Water Temperature

Your hot tub temperature usually hovers around 100 degrees, so dial down the temperature to 85 degrees to cool off the water. If the outside temperature permits, feel free to turn off the heater altogether. Bonus: When the temperature is lower, there’s no limit on how long you can soak.

2) Stay Hydrated

This is a good rule of thumb to follow when it’s hot, even when you’re not in your Cal Spas hot tub. But when it comes to staying cool in the spa, definitely drink up—water, that is. Say no to alcohol and yes to cold H20 when you head in for a dip to keep your body from overheating.

3) Apply a Cold Compress

Keep a cool, wet washcloth handy and place it on your forehead or neck. You’ll instantly feel cooler—and you’ll be comfortable enough to enjoy a longer soak in the tub when it’s hot outside.

4) Soak in the Shade

If your hot tub is in direct sunlight, consider putting up an umbrella or shade to deflect some of the rays. A hat can also go a long way in keeping your head and body feeling much cooler. We recommend using a Cal Spas Side Umbrella. The Side Umbrella is the perfect addition for keeping you cool and will allow you to enjoy your spa experience.

5) Wait Until Sundown

The scorching summer sun will only get your hot tub—and you—hotter. A simple solution is to wait until the sun sets before taking the plunge.

There’s no need to retire your hot tub when the weather heats up, as long as you take precautions to be safe while you soak. Be aware that when your body temperature changes quickly, you might feel a bit lightheaded. Enter your hot tub slowly, and do the same as you exit.
