The bonus is hot tubs can bring a whole host of health benefits as well as providing a great new social aspect to your life.

  • A Hot Tub is a great place to enjoy social activities, such as spending time with friends or getting together with the family.
  • You can choose the size of your hot tub from two or up to ten people, depending on your needs.
  • A hot tub can be enjoyed in all seasons: from a summer BBQ party to a winter get together, being enveloped in the hot water against the cold winter is excellent.
  • With the rush of modern life, a hot tub has also become a place for families to enjoy a catch up and unwind after a long day at work.
  • With extras such as lights, sound systems and other gadgets that could be installed along with your hot tub, you could lead the way in social interaction amongst your friends! 

If a hot tub is on your shopping list, there will be warm steamy bubbles to relax you through Christmas and into the New Year and beyond, plus hours of enjoyment for family, friends and any guests being entertained over the seasonal period.  

BISHTA recommends that consumers buy their hot tub from accredited members, who are able to give detailed advice about the use of water treatment products and the upkeep of the hot tub, as well as provide peace of mind that they are buying from a reputable supplier. BISHTA is the trade association for hot tubs and spas, which ensure contractors and suppliers, meet industry standards to make usage safe.
