Summer is finally here! The season of backyard barbecues, family game nights, and firefly catching couldn’t get much better — until you soak in your hot tub, that is. Many hot tub owners are surprised to find they can continue their hydrotherapy into the warmer months, but you absolutely can use your hot tub in summer!
How to Use Your Hot Tub in Summer
If it’s the heat from your spa that you need for those aches and pains, you can still soak in hot water. You may just want to schedule your spa sessions either in the morning or in the evening when outside temperatures are not quite as hot. Try sipping on your coffee during your morning soak or pair your evening hot tub session with a campfire.
The Perfect Hot Tub Temperature
Of course if you want to turn your hot tub’s temperature down a few degrees, you can still soak whenever it is convenient for you. The average human body’s core temperature is 98.6, so turning your hot tub down to the low 90’s or even high 80’s can be quite refreshing. Worried about dehydrating your skin by soaking midday? Add MicroSilk® to your spa’s water to keep your skin hydrated and glowing.
Hot tub’s are just as safe in the summer as they are in the winter, but whenever you use your hot tub, there are some general safety guidelines to prevent overheating and enhance your spa experience:
- Stay hydrated
- Wait till you stop sweating after exercise before hopping in
- Lower the temperature to stay in longer
- Check medications for side effects of drowsiness or dizziness
