For a long time we didn't have a hot tub cover. And then, we got one. We were given a variety of choices by the Coleman hot tub place, and a variety of colors to choose from. Black, hunter green, espresso brown, dark gray, golden tan, parchment, blue, and red all seemed like good colors for my cedar hot tub. But then I realized that it's not about the color of the hot tub, it's more about the experience of sitting in that hot water without feeling the zap from the hot tub chemicals. But then again, I thought, if I could find a hot tub cover in the color rainbow, that gave me all of the colors, I would finally feel complete!

I am curious where I am going to put the hot tub after I rent it from the hot tub rental store. This is a very good question. Hot tubs are like giant African animals - zebras, hippos, elephants - and you have to think about this before you just go slapping a giant elephant on your deck! Some hot tubs only hold 1 or 2 people while some hold between 6 and 10. The hot tub I want holds between 6 and 10, according to the instruction manual. But I'll be trying to set a world record with 20 people.

Spa chemicals are important because spa filters are not enough to remove the tiny infrastructure of bugs that have built up in your new discount hot tub. The spa filter is good for picking up larger rocks, sticks, and debris. But you need powerful spa chemicals to hone in on the algae and fungi that are no doubt inhabiting and breeding even while you read this article. So the bottom line is that you need both a filter and a good dose of natural spa chemicals to destroy the nasty vermin and vile creatures that can give you and your family rotten diseases.

Some hot tub covers have drain holes and others don't. Some appear to drain and then dry while others don't. I bought my hot tub with special drain holes. If there was some type of a carriage that allowed me to drain the hot tub and then dry it I suppose I would go out looking for that type of hot tub. It's frustrating to me that my brand new cedar hot tub doesn't even have a cover that drains and dries because there are drain holes that are built right into my cover, so you would think the opposite. Maybe I should upgrade my hot tub cover to something that gives me double my protection because I can't stop thinking about it!

I am thinking about making my own hot tub rental store. This means I will have to borrow money to buy all of the hot tubs. Or, I could go up to Alaska and sheer down some trees and make some nice hot tubs out of their fine firs. I actually prefer redwood over cedar - and I prefer wood over plastic. Wood bends and can stretch whereas plastic is just a substance that surrounds us in our normal day-to-day environment, which just gets a little old, let's face it!

If you're going to have a portable hot tub, I don't recommend the blow up kind. These can randomly explode if you put too much air in them. Plus, it's a lot of money to put all of that water in the tub - 500 pounds of water - and the last thing you need is to blow it all. If you're out in the woods and a pine needle pops the thing, then you are in big trouble ! Portable hot tubs should at least have an iota of strength to them, and the blow-up kind of portable hot tubs aren't very strong.

Sometimes I accidentally spill drinks into my Jacuzzi hot tub. If I was in the gym, this would frustrate me because the other customers might get mad at me. But here, in the sanctum of my home, I am able to literally bathe in my own lemonade if I want to. This is a very satisfying feeling, to be in control of my destiny. Once I literally did fill the hot tub up with lemonade for a party, and we all took turns drinking out of it. Of course I had to use powerful spa chemicals when I was done, and powerful Jacuzzi cleaning chemicals.

How often should I replace my hot tub filter? This actually depends on what kind of filter you have. Some filters are very big. Some filters are very small. Some filters need to be cleaned more than others. Others do not. It really all depends. My recommendation is that you read the inside of your direction manual to get the exact specifications. But a good rule of thumb: If it is falling apart, and there are cracks in the pleating, and the core appears to be ruined, then it's probably a good time to start getting serious about your cedar hot tub and take the next step toward changing your hot tub filter.

Hot tub installation often forgets the fact there is an equipment compartment panel. A person is building the hot tub, and they remember to buy all the spa chemicals and such, but they then forget to make a place to store it all! Where are you going to put the extra hot tub filters? Where will the inventory and bills be placed? I recommend putting it all in its own "house" so that way you can stay organized. Cedar hot tubs sometimes take extra care because the wood is more expensive, much like redwood hot tubs.

Hot tub decks are really nice when you remember to incorporate all the elements into an aesthetic pleasure. My number one thing to remember about hot tub decks is that water is heavy, and if you don't jostle the correct concrete pillars into place, then installing your hot tub in the correct place will become an issue. Vertical and horizontal pins and pillars help to solidify the hot tub deck. Even if you have a hot tub rental, your hot tub needs to be supported, if but for a short amount of time!

Watching my kids jump into the Jacuzzi hot tub has been one of the best experiences of my life. While they sing songs about Mickey Mouse, I can hear them from afar, and I realize that I didn't have anything like this growing up when I was a boy. My plan is to put a Jacuzzi hot tub into every room - just install them - so you always have the option to jump into one where ever you are. Put it this way, sometimes I feel like I'm in the mood for a forceful massage.

The great thing about my Jacuzzi hot tub is that it sits right on my deck, overlooking the mountains. Because I am higher than my neighbors, I can look out but they cannot see in. There is nothing nicer than having this privacy while the snow falls. Between talking about spa chemicals and chlorine products to make our hot tub even safer I get to watch the kids go jump outside in the snow and make snow angels. There is a real sense that I am as successful as my neighbors, which is hilarious because they are much wealthier than I am.
