So, can your Hot Tub be used as a Pool in the Summer?

Abso-bloody-lutely! Hot Tubs are designed to be used 365 days a year! Whilst most hot tubs run around 38°C year round, their temperatures range anywhere from 15°C to 40°C so you can set it to a more Summer friendly temperature! For example, our Swim Spas are typically set to 28°C.

Plunge Pool for Children

During the dog days of summer, children can be especially adversely affected by high ambient temperatures. Your hot tub can play a wonderful role in keeping them cool and allowing you to remain sane. Simply turn off the hot tub altogether and allow the water temperature to drop to ambient levels. (We only recommend doing this for a few hours at a time. You can do so by turning the isolator off).

Just make sure to keep an eye on them at all times. 👀

Make the most of a Rainy Day!

One of the joys of owning a hot tub during a summer rain shower is the sensation of soaking in warm water while allowing the raindrops to cool your head and face. As long as there’s no lightning, this is perfectly safe and very refreshing!

Gimme Shelter!

Another way to keep the temperature bearable while using your hot tub in the summer is to set up some sort of canopy, tent or umbrella. This will prevent the sun from beaming down on your head while you’re soaking. It will also protect your hot tub cover from the sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays when your hot tub isn’t in use.



The Ideal Summer Hot Tub Schedule

When you’re in the middle of summer, the temperatures will be at the highest at midday. So, if you want to use your hot tub without worrying about overheating, it’s best to soak in the evening and the early morning. Once the sun comes out, the temperatures will start to rise again which might make it a little uncomfortable for midday hot tubbing. But, you can always lower the temperature or turn off the heater during the day and use your hot tub as a kind of cooling off plunge pool. In the late afternoon, you can turn the heater on again and have your hot tub ready to provide a warm massage before you go to bed.
