Enjoy Your Hot Tub This Valentine’s Day

Valentines hot tub

With Valentine’s Day on the horizon, hot tub owners can look forward to a romantic evening in the bubbles that will be warm, relaxing and even a little steamy!

Here we list just a few of the advantages owning a hot tub can offer to couples of all ages who like to relax and unwind in each others’ company.

Quality alone time

Between work, family and personal commitments life can be pretty busy, with less and less time to spend with our partners. Owning a hot tub gives busy couples the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of luxury and serenity whenever they have the chance, with a quick jump into the tub offering the perfect opportunity to relax and reconnect.

Romance and relaxation

Sharing a hot tub with the one you love is an enjoyable and calming experience that allows you both to relax and find some peace and tranquility together. Whatever the rigours of everyday life, owning a hot tub offers couples an opportunity to enjoy some quiet seclusion and concentrate on one another as the rest of the world rushes along.

A bottle of bubbly

At the end of a hard day or a busy week many of us enjoy a few drinks (in moderation of course!) and a hot tub offers a perfect environment to unwind with a glass of wine or champagne and spend some time with a significant other. There are many advantages to owning a hot tub, but enjoying a bottle of bubbly in the bubbles with your partner is certainly one of the best!

Beat the crowds

Be it Valentine’s Day or any other time of the year, a romantic rendezvous at a restaurant, theatre or bar can be overcrowded and very noisy. Owning a hot tub gives you the option to spend special time together in the comfort of your own home without having to worry about reservations and traffic jams.

On the 9th November, we celebrated the grand opening of our new indoor showroom in Cannock.

Whilst we have been open for business at our new location since the end of August, we are so proud of our fantastic new setting that we felt that a proper celebration was in order, allowing us to introduce as many customers and prospects to our new premises as possible, treating them to plenty of drinks and nibbles and entering all attendees into a special raffle.

Not only does our indoor space allow us to showcase a larger selection of our hot tub models and products, we can also show more of our hot tubs in action – this is great for our customers and makes our jobs much easier as it’s much easier to talk through the features of each model when they aren’t empty!hot tub showroom

Making the Most of Your Hot Tub with Exercise

When you think of a hot tub, you probably envisage it as a place to kick back and relax. But it can also offer the perfect place to enhance your health and fitness and to help repair your muscles.

The bubbling water in a hot tub helps to repair and rejuvenate your muscles by increasing blood flow and stimulating your lymphatic system to remove toxins from your body. Therefore, doing some exercises in your hot tub can have even more benefits than doing them out of the water.

At All Weather Leisure, we’ve come up with a few firm favourites to help you get started on your hot tub exercise journey. Bear in mind that you don’t need to do all the below in one session – mix and match as you please! When starting any new exercise programme, it’s always best to check in with your doctor first.

 

  1. Releasing tension in and strengthening your leg muscles

 

  1. While sitting down, push your toes against the end of the hot tub and hold for five seconds. Relax and repeat on each leg three times.
  2. Stand up and bring your foot behind you up to your buttock and hold for five seconds, feeling your quadricep stretch.
  3. Sitting down, lift one leg so that your foot is in line with your knee. Repeat five times for each leg – moving against the resistance can help to build up your muscles.

 

  1. Easing tension in your neck and shoulders

 

  1. While sitting down, slowly roll each shoulder front to back, making a full circle. Repeat this five times with each shoulder. Then repeat the exercise with the soft circular motions going in the opposite direction.
  2. Sitting down and facing forward, slowly move your head down to the left as far as you can, before returning your head to a central position. Repeat this for each side, as well as forwards and backwards, five times.
  3. Sitting in the hot tub, lift your shoulders towards your ears and hold for five seconds. Repeat five times.

 

  1. Other exercises

 

  1. Abdominal hold – while sitting down, suck your abs in and hold for ten seconds. Repeat this five times.
  2. Arm stretches – while sitting or standing, lift one arm over your head and point down over your other side, leaning as far as you can go. Hold for five seconds and repeat for each side five times.
  3. Arm crossovers – extend your arms out in front of you with your palms down on the hot tub seat. Quickly cross your arms, alternating right and left. Repeat this for five sets of five crossovers.

 

Now that your work has been done, sit back, relax and enjoy the comfort your bubbling hot tub can bring!

At All Weather Leisure, we stock a wide range of hot tubs, garden buildings and hot tub accessories. Our showroom is based in Cannock, Staffordshire, but we have clients from all over the UK.

Choosing a Hot Tub – What to Look For

choosing a hot tub

Despite unpredictable weather in Staffordshire and beyond, a record number of people are looking to spruce up their garden with a hot tub.

At All Weather Leisure, we’ve seen a marked increase in enquiries from people in Lichfield, Cannock and Sutton Coldfield, all looking to add a little je ne sais quoi to their outside environment.

This is in part due to the increasing costs of going out and more people looking for ways to enjoy their home environment. A hot tub can be the perfect way to make the most of your surroundings and bring a slice of luxury that can be enjoyed for years to come. But what are the things you should do before buying your hot tub?

Go and have a look

Although it can be tempting to do all your hot tub research online, it’s wise not to make your decision just by sitting behind a computer screen. We recommend that you go and see some hot tubs before you buy – enabling you to feel the quality and talk through your requirements with a professional. Unfortunately, many internet offers rely on selling low quality hot tubs that don’t stand the test of time, which is why it’s important to go to your local showroom to see them.

At All Weather Leisure, we help people in Cannock, Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield, and surrounding areas find the hot tub of their dreams at a reasonable price.

Find a hot tub seller who offers a warranty

How would you feel if you’d just invested thousands of pounds into a hot tub, only for something to go wrong and you not be covered with a warranty? Sometimes, repair work is necessary to keep your hot tub running smoothly, so make sure you look for a hot tub that has a reasonable warrantee.

Consider size

Hot tubs come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, so it’s important to think about how much space you have to house one and where you want to put it. If you’re unsure of what will fit and work best, having an onsite survey from your local hot tub supplier is a good place to start.

Plan the space

It can be easy to get so involved in choosing a hot tub that you forget to think about things like which direction it sits, how it will work in your overall garden design and whether you need a gazebo or garden building. When you start preparing your garden for the arrival of a new jacuzzi, speak to your local retailer who can help you in your planning journey.

Think about how you want the water filtered

Hot tub filtration systems have many important functions, primarily keeping you safe from bacteria and your machine safe from debris that could damage or even break it. There are many types of filtration systems in place and each has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, it’s important to talk through your options with your local hot tub retailer.

Think about funding

Hot tubs can be an expensive purchase that you might not want to shell out for in one go. Reputable hot tub retailers can offer finance packages that will allow you to spread the cost of your new investment. At All Weather Leisure, we can provide up to 3 years interest free credit on all new Jacuzzi hot tubs.

To start your journey to find your dream hot tub, call our Staffordshire-based store today on: 0333 600 7008. We have a wide range of hot tubs just waiting for you to dip your toes into.

3 Reasons to Buy a Hot Tub Rather Than Booking a Family Holiday

buying a hot tub

Before you consider paying out the annual outlay on a family holiday abroad, we offer three good reasons why purchasing a hot tub might make a better investment.

  1. Bringing the holiday to you

The decision to buy a hot tub can bring a real holiday experience to your home, offering a sense of genuine relaxation and luxury that can be enjoyed again and again!

Whether you’re looking to spend more time socialising with your friends and family, interested in the therapeutic and healing benefits, or simply looking to enjoy some well-earned quiet time, a hot tub offers all the essentials of a holiday at home!

  1. All year enjoyment

You may miss out on a few weeks in the sun, but a hot tub really does have an all weather appeal that lasts throughout the year.

You’ll find a hot tub is a great feature for summer parties and sunny days, but just as enjoyable for luxurious autumnal bathing, relaxing with friends on a frosty February evening or enjoying a festive drink as the hot steam rises!

  1. A long term investment

Although a well-deserved holiday would be lovely, it will only last for a couple of weeks and there’s always the chance to travel abroad next year!

A hot tub offers a permanent slice of luxury that will last for years to come. You will be surprised how quickly it becomes a regular part of your social and relaxation time, and a highly valued feature of your home. Many people find that the hot tub is the perfect excuse to spend more time with friends and family. There’s no need to travel far to bring all the people you love together, why not buy a hot tub instead?


For many years All Weather Leisure have supplied the highest quality hot tubs, swim spas, wooden garden buildings and thatched gazebos to the Midlands. Why not invest in spending more time with your family, soaking in the hot tub, rather than simply condensing it into only a week or two?

How to Keep Hot Tub Running Costs Down

hot tub building

If you have a hot tub or you are considering buying one, you may be wondering how to keep energy bills down and maximise its efficiency. At All Weather Leisure, we recommend taking a number of steps to ensure that you are doing all you can to keep your hot tub running nicely, while also cutting down running costs where possible.

Pick a well-made hot tub

Although it is easy to think that all hot tubs are made to the same standard, the truth is quite different. A well-constructed hot tub will have built in, quality insulation that helps to keep your tub warmer for longer. Cheaper imports don’t always have the same efficiency, so ensure that you’re buying a high quality product with a decent manufacturer’s warrantee – this is always a given with All Weather Leisure.

cutting down hot tub running costs

Use a quality hot tub cover that’s in good condition

It can be tempting to go for a cheaper option in the short term, but when you purchase the cheapest hot tub cover on the market it can be a false economy. This is because poor quality covers let out more heat, which can mean that you’re spending money on electricity while you heat the world outside. The same can be said when your hot tub cover is broken, as any slight damage can significantly reduce energy consumption.

Use a hot tub gazebo or building

With the unpredictable UK weather, it can be difficult to plan when you go in your hot tub. That’s why housing your hot tub in a gazebo or building can protect it further from the cold, which can lead to lower energy usage and running costs.

hot tub building

Set up a wind block

It sounds simple, but setting up a wind block, made from fencing, shrubs or trees, can not only give more privacy, but reduce heat loss too.

Turning off hot tub accessories

There are lots of fancy functions that you can add to your tub, such as LED lights and power jets, but leaving them on can use an unnecessary amount of energy. For example, air induction jets are fabulous for soothing aching muscles, but lower the temperature by inducing the water with air. Making sure that any additional features are turned off while the hot tub is not in use is key in keeping energy costs down.

When you’re going away, use holiday mode

Remember to turn down the Jacuzzi’s thermostat when you go on holiday, or during any extended period of non-use. If this is during warmer months, you can turn the thermostat down to its lowest level or off, but in freezing weather you must keep some heat in there to stop the water freezing and damaging the pipes.

Change your filters regularly

Spa filters that are clogged or worn out can make your pump work overtime and cause your heating element to perform less efficiently, wasting electricity and cash. Make sure that you clean your filters every time you change the water and replace the filter annually.

Conserve water

Wasting water is not just bad for the environment, but it can increase your hot tub running costs. This is because the more water that’s wasted, the more you will have to replace and heat. When using the tub, try not to splash around too much and make sure that there aren’t any leaks. By cleaning your spa regularly, replacing filters when necessary and using the right combination of hot tub chemicals, your water will last longer before it needs to be changed.

Use a thermal blanket

Thermal spa blankets are one of the best investments that a hot tub owner can make, paying for themselves in no time thanks to the heat that they conserve. They sit on top of the water, underneath the cover, playing a big part in reducing hot tub running costs.

Our Top Tips for Recycling Your Hot Tub Water When It’s Time to Empty Your Tub

Maintaining your hot tub is fairly simple, including a regular draining and refilling every 3-4 months. Refreshing your water is important because over time, it will become clogged with minerals, contaminants and other deposits that put a strain on the filter and sanitiser. You’ll likely be left with cloudy-coloured water that won’t be so nice to soak in. However, since a hot tub can hold up to 2500 litres of spa water depending on its size, draining and refilling it can produce a lot of wasted water. If you’re trying to save on water or work on your environmental credentials, you might want to try these useful ways to reuse, recycle and extend the life of your spa water when it’s time to empty the tub!

Adjusting your pH levels

Keep your jacuzzi water pH level to the ideal range of 7.2 to 7.8, as this will ensure that it is well sanitised and won’t lead to skin irritation or scale formation. Regularly testing and adjusting the total alkalinity and calcium hardness levels of your spa water will also help to prolong its life. Total alkalinity helps you control the pH levels, and should be between 80 to 120 ppm. The calcium hardness will measure the amount of minerals in your water. Keeping this at the right level will help your filter and sanitiser in better shape and can extend the water usage. Calcium hardness should be between 100-450 ppm depending on the finish of your hot tub.

You can find what you’ll need to test your spa water and keep it clean for longer here.

Recycle water by watering your garden

 

hot tub water recycling

Watering your plants and lawn is one of the easiest ways to recycle your hot tub water and reward your garden in the process!

For both chlorine and saltwater hot tubs, you’ll want to test the chlorine and pH levels and make sure they’re at the desired levels before using the water. The chlorine level should be below 1 ppm, and the pH level between 7-8 to make sure that your plants are safe.

Spa water is fine to use on plants; however, some plant varieties may not be so tolerant to saltwater. For grass, a slightly lower pH of around 7 will be fine. It may take a few days to use the hose around every half hour, so you don’t over-saturate one area of the lawn.

With the warmer weather, you may even want to water your house foundations or concrete, to prevent the ground from becoming too dry and soaking the surrounding soil to provide extra support for the house structures.

Got a pool?

A clean outdoor pool can take a large amount of spa water and ta-dah – it’s easily converted to pool water. It’s a great way to recycle a larger amount of water from your hot tub.

Clean your car

If you’re watering your front lawn, you may as well give your car a good clean as well. Simply hose your car down and leave the water running on the lawn as you start scrubbing the car.

Shower before you hop in

Taking a quick shower before you relax and soak in the hot tub may help you reduce the amount of times you’ll have to drain it. Showering will help to get rid of excess dirt, oils and contaminants on the body which could eventually overload the spa filter and sanitiser. Keeping your hair out of the water will also help to keep contamination levels low.

Preventing cloudiness

 

hot tub filter

Adding a second filter, either an inline or external one, will give you better filtration and reduce substance build-up in your hot tub water. You can also use a spa clarifier or spa enzymes to keep the water from becoming cloudy and help you to tackle water waste.

Garden Escape – Hot Tubs in Staffordshire from All Weather Leisure

Hot tub parties might draw to mind images of luxury log cabins and hotel resorts, but hot tubs are much closer to home than some people realise. With many of us looking forward to the summer and taking advantage of any good weather that we get in the UK this year, now is the perfect time to invest in your own hot tub. At All Weather Leisure, we have plenty of experience in supplying and installing hot tubs in Staffordshire and the surrounding areas.

hot tub Lichfield Staffordshire

A few years ago, the only accessories Staffordshire home owners needed in their back garden were a lawnmower, a few tools, a bench, or maybe a garden table and chairs. However, as lifestyles grow more and more hectic, the garden is increasingly becoming a favourite place to relax. Even though the weather in the Midlands is unpredictable at best, this certainly hasn’t affected sales of hot tubs, in fact, hot tubs are actually more popular in cold weather.

hot tub Burntwood Staffordshire

Even in cold weather, a hot tub provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy your garden whilst staying warm, comfortable and relaxed. Whilst people like to tend the garden and make sure their outdoor space looks great, the English weather can often get in the way of this. On the other hand, hot tubs provide an ideal retreat from poor weather – you can even house your tub under a garden building. Gazebos provide important cover whilst still providing plenty of a garden view, or woodlands log cabins are full of potential for relaxing and entertaining your friends all year round.

hot tubs Staffordshire

Living in Staffordshire, you’re never far away from the speed of life and modern technology, but relaxing in the hot tub allows you to get away from your smart phone and escape digital distractions. How does that sound to you? It certainly sounds great to us. You may be in your back garden, but when you are relaxing, you can pretend you are anywhere.

If you are looking for a hot tub supplier in Staffordshire or the Midlands, call All Weather Leisure today on 0333 600 7008 or come and see us at our showroom. We’ll be happy to talk through all of your requirements to find the best hot tub to suit your needs.
