I have always wanted a hot tub and was hoping I would move into a house or apartment that had a nice big one installed. Why not live in the lap of luxury if you can. A swimming pool is nice, too, but many times they are not heated and they don’t have spray jets or other relaxation accoutrements. So a hot tub is my first choice. I have a few friends with them so I know of what I am speaking. I have personally enjoyed a steamy hot water experience for hours on end. It’s fun also when other people share the tub and it is a social gathering. I can’t say too much about how great it is. So I went looking at small hot tubs for my yard. Wow. I didn’t know there were so many styles and sizes—and prices. It is hard to decide which one is best for average use. This is where the Internet is not that much help. They are dozens of sites with a multitude of choices and the descriptions are pretty good, but how do you know you will like any given one. Sure, there are testimonials, but they are average people and their accounts may not be accurate. You have to take them with a grain of salt.
So I hopped over to the nearest dealer for pool and hot tub supplies to get some expert help. They asked me the right questions. The main one is “how large is your yard.” It seems that is pretty relevant. I cannot accommodate just any size hot tub in my small space. This hasn’t deterred me, however, as I know these tubs come in all sizes, and I know you don’t need to resort to a kiddie pool. Doing a little math together, the consult and I came up with measurements that would work within my space. I wasn’t disappointed that it was a diminutive tub barely enough room for two. It was actually big enough for at least four which meets my needs.
I will soon be in hot tub heaven. I can luxuriate in warmth and soak my aching muscles. This is particularly nice after a heavy work out at the gym. I often try to make up for lost time and push myself hard, but I don’t want to share the communal hot tub with sweaty others. I am looking forward to the privacy that having your own hot tub affords, plus you can set it at any temperature you like. Some people enjoy reading in their tub or having a glass of wine. As far as I am concerned, anything I do there will be relaxing and soothing. My neighbor already got wind of my impending purchase and has been hinting about sharing. I will just wait and see. My tub is not going to be the hub of the neighborhood. Surely there is someone else nearby with a tub bigger than mine.
