Foam in Hot Tubs

April 6th, 2015 by

Foaming in hot tubs and spas is a problem that every spa owner will have at one time or another. Even if you take great care of your spa, always ensuring good sanitation and filtration, foamy spa water can become an issue, so don’t be embarrassed if it happens to you! A little bit of [...]


Hot Air Balloon Hot Tubs

March 30th, 2015 by

This blog has reported on spas in some very strange places – suspended from a bridge, on top of a mountain, built inside of a cave or sunk into a glacier. But a hot air balloon hot tub? Where would a off-beat start-up launch such a creative endeavor? Where else but in California? In Napa [...]

Is the Container Store a favorite hang-out for you? Do you spend hours organizing everyone’s sock drawer in the house? Do you feel a calm sense of control when your surroundings are neat and orderly? Me too – storage and organization is kind of a hobby of mine. My Pinterest page is filled with ideas [...]


Hot Tub Pioneers – Spa Cover Inventors

March 17th, 2015 by

The hot tub cover or spa top, is one of the most necessary accessory items for a spa or hot tub. But it wasn’t always so – in the early days, hot tubs were not kept hot all the time, but heated up as needed. Then, the energy crunch of ’73 hit, and inventors starting [...]


Children in Hot Tubs

March 12th, 2015 by

Children in hot tubs – is it dangerous? When my children were young, many years ago, I can remember telling my husband; “they’re not just little adults, you know…”.

How to Clean a Hot Tub without Draining

March 10th, 2015 by

First off… I have to say that draining the spa is usually recommended every 3-4 months, to replace with fresh water that contains far fewer dissolved solids, wastes and disinfectant byproducts. Fresh water is easier to filter, sanitize and is healthier for bathers. But… I understand that there are times and places where draining the [...]


How to Buy a Hot Tub

March 5th, 2015 by

Thinking about buying a hot tub? You’ve come to the right place honey, I’ve purchased a few hot tubs in my day, but helped more people buy theirs. For many years I was a Top-Selling Spa Salesperson. That’s right, two-time Salesperson of the Year, as a matter of fact. Since my spa store days, I [...]


Spa Error Codes – The Big List

February 27th, 2015 by

The best thing about digital spas and hot tubs – those with a spa side control panel – is that you are given error codes for most equipment problems. Spa error codes can be somewhat cryptic, but when you have the BIG LIST of CODES, you can immediately define the two or three digit source [...]


How To Clean a Hot Tub that has been Sitting

February 24th, 2015 by

It doesn’t take long for spa water to go south when the hot tub has been sitting for days or weeks without being filtered or sanitized. How long? In moderate temperatures, spa water can stay fresh for up to two weeks, if covered tightly. Spa water that sits longer than a week or two will [...]


Spa & Hot Tub Maintenance

February 20th, 2015 by

Well hello again, my dear readers; I would have thought this topic would go to one of our more technical writers, but my hot tub was voted as the most well-maintained, and they asked to know my secret! Flattery will get you everywhere I suppose,  so here I am with some basic spa and hot [...]
