Saltwater hot tubs are perfect for homeowners who want to enjoy a gentle hot tub experience! A saltwater hot tub combines the luxuriously soft, gentle water of salt systems with the relaxing and soothing comfort of the hot water. A hot tub equipped with a salt water system is more cost-effective and will require less maintenance than a traditional hot tub so you can count on spending less time monitoring chemical levels and more time enjoying all the amazing benefits a hot tub has to offer.
5 benefits of salt water hot tubs that ensure a relaxing and healthy soak:
1. Convenience and Fewer Chemicals
With a saltwater spa, you will have fewer bottled chemicals to buy, measure, pour, and worry about. Gone are the days of the weekly water check-ups to make sure your spa chemicals are completely balanced. This is because after the initial setup of a saltwater spa, the saltwater system essentially takes care of itself, constantly producing clean, pure water on its own. Plus, it’s extremely easy to use because the spa is already all set up and ready to run. With Caldera’s FreshWater Salt System all you have to do is simply press a button on the panel and your spa will automatically start release salt into your spa. When you spend less time caring for your spa, you have more time to enjoy the benefits!
It’s no secret that unfortunately, chlorine tends to have a bit of a smell. The smell is caused by the chemical residue in the hot tub water. Since salt water mostly eliminates the use of chemicals this means no smell!
3. Fewer Drainings
Unlike traditional hot tubs that need to be drained every 3 months, a saltwater hot tub only needs to be drained once a year. What’s great about this is that this saves time, money, and water! Therefore, you can feel great about knowing you are preserving water and your utility bills will thank you too!
4. Softer Water and Healthier Skin
One of the disadvantages of heavily chlorinated fresh water hot tubs is their drying effect on your skin. Salt water, however, has a softening effect on your skin. Also, sensitive eyes and skin are exposed to irritation when soaking in chlorinated water. Since chlorine is naturally generated in saltwater hot tubs, chloramines are less likely to build up, keeping your eyes and skin safe from irritation so you can fully enjoy relaxing in the hot water.
Another perk of a saltwater hot tub is that salt water can act as a gentle exfoliant. This helps to remove dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface to reveal smoother and healthier looking skin. Salt can also help to clean pores, balance oil production, and decrease bacteria that cause acne.
5. Enhanced Hydrotherapy!
A saltwater soak in your hot tub has all the same benefits of a regular freshwater hot tub, with an added bonus: salt water actually helps extract extra fluid from your skin, which in return helps with swollen joints and inflammation. People who suffer from arthritis can experience greater relief in a salt water hot tub. Plus, salt water is extra buoyant!
As you can tell, there are many positive benefits when it comes to a saltwater spa. But don’t just take my word for it.
