Why a Hot Tub? FEEL YOUNGER!

Water has it's own healing properties.

Who doesn't want that?  

Anyone who owns a hot tub can testify to the benefits of enjoying regular mini soaks.

But what if you learned there is scientific evidence that proves using a hot tub ACTUALLY slows the aging process down?


 " Our bodies are constantly trying to seek a physiological balance point called homeostasis. This state preserves optimum function despite changes in position, activity, stress, aging or disease. The effort to find homeostasis is what propels most of the functional adaptations that occur during immersion in water, with some changes being immediate and others only after a period of time. Like many adaptations, a cascade of other physiological changes occur, some sequentially and some concurrently.

Here’s how it works: Because water compresses the body, it pushes blood into the deep vessels during immersion. As the bather steps into deeper water, blood is pushed upward, first into the large capacity vessels of the pelvis and abdomen. Then as depth increases yet further, blood is pushed above the diaphragm into the chest. With neck depth immersion, nearly three-quarters of a quart of blood is displaced, with two-thirds of it going into large pulmonary vessels and one-third into the heart."

How to Save Money with EASY Weekly Filter Maintenance

What is the procedure to clean my filter cartridge (s)?
and HOW OFTEN should I clean my filter cartridge (s)?
How does this save me money?

1) Remove the cartridge from the filter housing following the manufacturer’s instructions

2) Use a garden hose with a straight flow nozzle to wash down the filter element. Work from the top down, holding the nozzle at a 45 degree angle, and wash all the pleats with emphasis between the pleats.

3) Rinse until all dirt and debris is gone

4) For all spa cartridges and elements used in swimming pools where perspiration, suntan lotions, and other oils are present, dilute in water and SOAK the element for at least one hour (overnight is most effective) or SPRAY ON and rinse 15 minutes later (shorter time because it's concentrated)

5) THOROUGHLY Rinse the cartridge again to remove oils and cleaning solution.

6) Allow it to air dry before using again. We recommend that you have an extra filter on hand and rotate them.
