5 Reasons Why Autumn/Winter is the Best Time to Buy a Hot Tub

Apparently, ‘hot tub season’ runs from spring to summer.


We all spend more time outdoors in the warmer months than we do when it’s cooler.

Us Brits generally don’t like going out if it’s cold, wet, or both, but when you buy a hot tub in Plymouth, or anywhere else across Devon and Cornwall, you have plenty to enjoy outdoors year-round – particularly if you’ve bought a Hydropool.

Don’t believe us? Here are 5 reasons why Autumn/Winter is the perfect time to buy a hot tub.

1. Hot Tubs Are Too Hot For Summer

In this country, we’re obsessed with the weather; we condition each other to think anything other than sun and blue skies is ‘bad weather’.

But the beauty of hot tubs and swim spas is they bring the heat.

In peak summer, we don’t exactly fantasise about getting into a warm bath! We want to plunge into the sea or hop in a cold shower to cool off.

Yes, you could make your hot tub or swim spa cold, but who really wants a cold water massage?

Between Autumn and Spring, hot tubs thrive – that’s why you commonly find them outside on ski resorts!

When you own a Hydropool spa you own the reverse sensation of a cool shower on a hot day. However cold it is outside. You’ll be warm in your hot tub.




2. Maximum Energy Efficiency (With Love From Canada)

Our spas are designed for maximum energy efficiency in bleak Canadian winters, where temperatures frequently drop well below -20 degrees C!

From our super-efficient pumps to our industry-leading insulation system, Hydropool spas can handle any climate. British winters? Pathetic!

This is why, unlike other hot tub and swim spa companies, we don’t recommend shutting your spa down for the winter.

We believe that even in these current times of higher energy prices, the benefits of a Hydropool spa are too great to reject when running your spa remains economical even during the winter. You can read our blog about hot tub running costs UK here.

Update: The UK government has announced that the energy price cap is to be frozen from October 2022 for the next 2 years, so you will be able to find out the maximum price per unit you will pay over the next 2 years.



3. Move Freely with Hydropool Home Hydrotherapy

Hot tubs aren’t only used for leisure. Hydrotherapy has many widely known physical health benefits, including stress relief, pain relief, increased blood flow, improved sleep, and general relaxation.

We all just want to be able to move freely and feel good. Improved blood flow and range of motion make this possible, and enjoying your time in your spa to feel these benefits is not exactly a chore!

Extensive research shows that the profound benefits of hydrotherapy go much deeper, improving the function of:

  • The cardiovascular system
  • The respiratory system
  • The nervous system
  • The musculoskeletal system
  • And many more!

Hydropool zone therapy makes people feel better going about their day-to-day. Through our understanding of the ergonomics of the human body, all Hydropool spas have 4 designated zones for targeted hydromassage treatments on areas of the body susceptible to tightness and tension that disrupts our everyday movement.


These treatments can be customised in a few ways:

  • Wellness programs that focus on your personal concerns, such as leg pain, back pain, or stress-related issues
  • Replaceable jets that simply screw into place, allowing you to move jets around as you please to really hit the spots you need to hit the most
  • Diverters that divert the water to specific places in the spa, generating more water velocity without additional energy usage


4. Be Present Together

A greatly enjoyed, but perhaps lesser discussed benefit of owning a Hydropool is the incredible enhancements of your personal and social lives.

With a Hydropool hot tubs in Devon, you can enjoy your evenings together with added pleasure.

We all love cuddling up and watching our favourite winter shows on the tele, but wouldn’t it be nice if you had the option to properly relax somewhere that you can both be present, in the moment, and with no distractions?

Choose your mood with lighting, and perhaps some aromatherapy liquids, then pour a glass of your favourite drink to sip on.

Step in and feel the warm jets relax you, while the water trickles around your body and you drift freely in and out of a conversation with your loved ones.

There are no distractions that take you away from the pure state of mental and physical relaxation.




5. Be THAT Friend

There’s a little less to do in the cooler months as we go outside less, so why not have friends and family round for home spa days, whatever the weather?

We all want to be a good host, but sometimes it comes with added pressure to make sure that people have a good time. What if they don’t want to come back?

Having friends over for a real hot tub experience is one of the biggest pleasures in life.

With a Hydropool spa, you can be certain that your guests will always have a good time. It’s literally science.

Your home gets an activity that immediately gives your host rating an extra or two extra every time, meaning you can relax a bit more and enjoy it just as much as everyone else. Use the spa surrounding to store your bottles in ice so you don’t even have to get out and run to the kitchen to make sure everyone’s got a drink!

Owning a Hydropool spa is owning a complete home-wellness experience for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Whether you invite your best friend round for an afternoon chat or your whole group comes over for a few drinks in the hot tub in the evening, you can be sure that if you’re that friend that owns a Hydropool hot tub, your house will soon become the place that your friends want to spend their time. And when you choose to invite them, you’re guaranteed to be met with enthusiasm and love. That’s the pre-Hydropool feeling!
