When getting into hot water is a good thing

Jun 17, 2009 10:59 AM

It is important to keep spas maintained as they tend to be havens for bacteria, according to Ms. Schoeck. She noted that with chemicals and a simple brushing of the walls, spas are fairly easy to keep up. She said there are maintenance companies that will service spas for roughly $30 a week.

“But it’s really not that hard to maintain them by yourself,” Ms. Schoeck said.

For those who cannot afford, or simply don’t want to shell out the money for a standard spa, there are inflatable alternatives, which start around the $600 to $800 range.

Inflatable tubs are relatively easy to set up. They also use a normal household outlet to heat the water up to 104 degrees. Some versions even come with air jets just like the more expensive counterparts, though inflatables are typically used on a temporary basis for specific events.

But for those who have the money in their budget and a permanent need for heat, a standard spa is the way to go, according to new hot tub owner Karen Cozine, who lives in Westhampton Beach. She recently purchased her new spa at John’s.

“It’s much better than a pool,” she said during an interview earlier this week. “The jets are great ... It’s always there and it’s always hot, it’s just so relaxing and therapeutic. I can’t wait to get in again.”
