Make the most of your Sundance Hot Tub this summer

This week marks the official start of Summer, and with the weather cooking, plenty of us are looking for ways to keep cool!

Sitting in a Hot Tub is the last thing on some people's minds when the heat hits, but your Sundance Hot Tub can actually be a great place to chill out and find some relief from the heat, and they are a great place for the kids and grandkids to splash around and play in - just throw in some rubber duckies and squirtees and they will be entertained for hours!

Buying a new Sundance Hot Tub is a fraction of the cost of installing a pool, and you can reap the many benefits of a Sundance Hot Tub year 'round rather than just the summer months. 

If your backyard is already equipped with a pool, you will likely see an increase in use of it if you add a Sundance Hot Tub close by, as those enjoying the pool can go and warm up before diving back in! (You will probably save some many as well, as you won't have to heat the huge amount of water in your pool as much if there is a relaxing, warming Sundance Hot Tub nearby).

Here are a few tips for enjoying your Sundance Hot Tub in the heat of summer.

Lower The Temperature

Make your Sundance Hot Tub a Cool Tub! You can lower your Hot Tubs Water temperature to as low as 65°, but anywhere from 90° to 99° will feel like a really nicely warmed swimming pool. Your natural body temperature is 98.6º, so sitting in water below that will actively cool your body down!

When reducing your Sundance Hot Tubs Water temperature you have a couple of options. For a quick cool down, we recommend you drain 4"-8" of the Hot Tubs water and re-fill with cold water from your hose. The Hot Tub will then heat up to your desired temperature which will be a quicker process than waiting for the water temperature to drop down from the high temperature it was set to.

If you don't want to drain any water, you can just lower the temperature setting on your control panel, and your Hot Tub will stop heating to allow the temperature to drop. It is a good idea to do this temperature drop gradually, lowering a few degrees at a time, as this will allow your Hot Tub to continue to circulate and filter the water which will keep your water clean while it is cooling.

Lowering the temperature of your Sundance Hot Tubs water will mean you can enjoy the Hot Tub for longer periods of time and you can enjoy the benefits of Sundance's Patented Hydrotherapy jets whilst enjoying a refreshing soak in the cool water!

Balance Your Water

Use your AquaCheck 6-in-1 test strips to help maintain balanced water (you can download their new SmartApp for iPhones, Ipads and Android devices to take the guess work out of water balancing).

As you are taking care of your Hot Tubs water, be sure to add Sun-Boom Hot Tub sanitizer as required, ensure the Alkalinity & pH are within the correct range and use Chlorine Free Spa Shock to break down any organics that make their way in to your Hot Tubs water.

This is especially worthwhile in the Summer as there is likely to be more oils, lotions and sunscreen products ending up in the Hot Tubs water that can cause cloudiness and foaming if not dealt with properly.

Stay Hydrated

During the warm summer months, when it is hotter and we tend to perspire more, it is important to stay well hydrated by drinking 6-8, 8 ounce glasses of water each day.

Fill a cooler with ice and throw in some of your favorite beverages and some water so you can stay hydrated while you soak in your Sundance Hot Tub and make the most of the beautiful Summer's day.

All 680 Series Sundance Hot Tubs have molded cup holders, and the 780 & 880 Series have both molded cup holders and an optional rubber drink tray that sits on top of the filter lid for extra convenience.

The new 980 Series Kingston & Claremont models come with a beautiful lounge deck complete with 2 illuminated SunCooler cold beverage storage areas, so you can have plenty of ice cold drinks available to stay happy and hydrated in your Hot Tub!
