3 Outdoor Hot Tub Trends

What to Look for This Season

Outdoor hot tubs are definitely a popular addition for homeowners who like to spend time outdoors year 'round. This year, we're spreading the word about three "trends" we're bringing to outdoor hot tubs:
  • Hot tubs that combine an entertainment center with a meditative retreat
  • Energy efficient spas
  • Low-maintenance water maintenance with reduced chemical usage
Outdoor hot tubs attract friends and family who love to have a good time together, but they are also natural havens for individuals seeking relief from stress. The 780™ Series spas are great examples: they are sized right, easy to take care of, and beautifully styled. Instead of going out, people who own a Sundance® 780™ Series outdoor hot tub make the most of their backyards on the weekends. Relaxing with a cool drink, stretching after exercise, or just sitting together and talking in the warmth of the hot tub – a modern outdoor hot tub can be a social spot and a source of well being.

Top of the Line Hot Tub Design and Performance

Feature-Rich Sundance® 880™ Series Hot Tubs Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? Yes indeed, the month that includes one of the most stressful days of the year -- tax day -- is designated as Stress Awareness Month. How many of you are satisfied with the amount of time you take for yourself to unwind and relax in a stress free environment? My guess is that the majority of people do not allow their minds and bodies the opportunity to slow down and de-stress, therefore missing out on the health benefits of relaxation. Visit your local dealer to learn more about the health benefits of relaxing in a Sundance® spa Spa hydrotherapy not only provides relaxation but also healing effects and nourishing rejuvenation. The combination of heat, buoyancy and massage accelerates your body’s natural healing process, and promotes physical and mental well-being. READ MORE >


How Portable is a Hot Tub?

A Sundance® Spa Can Be Moved More Easily Than You Think

Portable Hot Tub When my husband and I remodeled our backyard, it took us months to decide on the color and dimensions of the stained and stamped concrete patio. Several decisions and choices revolved around this permanent fixture and once it was poured and set, there was no going back. Fortunately, most  Sundance® spas are above-ground, self-contained units that are portable. Our hot tubs are quite easy to install and set up, and they can be relocated again later, depending on the hot tub installation. These benefits have made our portable spas extremely popular for home owners looking to create a backyard spa retreat without the stress of a huge construction project. A portable hot tub can be tilted up on its side onto a flat dolly and easily guided along a walkway – just be sure the hot tub has clearance at gates or doorways. Unlike an in-ground hot tub installation, a portable hot tub doesn’t require any special construction or plumbing. (It’s important that you contact a licensed electrician or contractor when planning for your hot tub electrical hook up. You should consult the owner’s manual for your specific hot tub model and provide the information to your electrician.) READ MORE >

Warm Up to Stormy Weather

Hot Tub Review: The Perfect Storm

Aqua Quip, a Sundance® Spas dealer serving the Puget Sound area, shared a hot tub review from a happy customer, Cathy Hitchman. Cathy and her husband bought their new Sundance® Certa®  hot tub from the Aqua Quip booth during the Puyallup Fair. The couple have been enjoying their spa for a couple of months when their area was "nailed" by storms. Without power to the house or the hot tub for five full days, and with temperatures around 30-35 degrees, Cathy expected to open the hot tub cover and find icy-cold spa water. "When we finally got power back to it [the hot tub]," Cathy writes, "we were impressed to see that it had only gone down to 70 degrees! We thought that was a pretty impressive statement about the insulation." We think so, too, but it's not surprising. The full-foam insulation used in Sundance® Spas hot tubs greatly reduces heat loss. Top-quality insulation retains the heat generated by the best hot tub heater in the industry – a titanium coil heater whose surface heats the water directly. This produces faster heat recovery and shorter heating cycles: that adds up to energy savings, and produces the type of warm surprise delivered by Cathy's Certa® hot tub.

How to Get a “Real Deal” on a Hot Tub

The Truth About Hot Tub Price and Value

Have you ever wondered about the range of prices for hot tubs? How do you calculate the value of a Sundance® brand hot tub vs. that of another manufacturer? I recently happened to catch a segment on the Today show about following up on New Year’s resolutions. One of the top things people resolve to do is save money. That led to a discussion about weighing what something costs vs. its value. Their conclusion was that in the long run, you may spend more by “going cheap” in the first place. The Today show hosts discussed possible outcomes which can result from a less expensive product: • The product doesn’t perform as well as you would expect it to, so you experience disappointment instead of enjoyment. • The product is not well made and either kicks the bucket or requires expensive repair fees. Save yourself buyer’s remorse and take the time to compare a big purchase on factors other than cost. This is so true in buying a hot tub. If it doesn’t deliver the hydromassage power you expect, have the features you enjoy or the options you need, you are less likely to use it. Take the time to weigh the price of a product against its value, especially if the item is a big investment, like a hot tub. A “cheap” spa may cost more in repairs and add-ons. Poor quality often goes with very low prices, and vice versa. How frustrating would it be to look forward to a nice soak in your hot tub at the end of the day, only to discover that it isn’t working properly, again? Getting a quality spa relative to your investment will add more value to your enjoyment of the hot tub for years to come. Sundance® Spas has earned a reputation for maintaining high manufacturing standards that can be counted on in manufacturing reliable, high-performance products, with the stylish features and options more people want.
