Three Reasons Why Spas Are So Irresistible and How to Afford Yours

by Anton Leinonen

Spa tubs, or simply "spas," are irresistible to most people. This is why so many people decide to invest money into having a spa or jacuzzi installed. If you still are not sold on the idea because you have never climbed into a "hot tub" full of bubbling water, here are three reasons why spas are so irresistible and how you can afford your own.

Spas Are Extremely Relaxing

All of the warm water and jets makes you feel buoyant and light. Even if you use spa with no intention of speaking to anyone else while you are in it, it is relaxing to just sit, float, and let your mind drift. Using a spa is akin to a nice long soak in the tub, except the jet streams are doing more to ease your aches and pains.

Spas Alleviate Pain

Athletes have been using spa tubs to massage sore muscles and rehabilitate injured limbs for decades. If you are sore and stiff after a long day at work, a spa can help alleviate all of your pain too. The jets gently massage you all over while the warm water acts as an anti-inflammatory.

Spas Can Be Really Social 

If you install a big enough spa tub in your backyard or some other room in your house, you can have hot-tub parties. This is what the Swedes, Norwegians, and Swiss all do with theirs: hold big social events where everybody gets in the tub, drinks, and socializes. If you are considered less-than-social by some of your friends, maybe you should consider a spa and a hot-tub party to shake up your image.

A Spa Can Be Within Your Budget

Without a doubt, a spa tub is an investment. Some may cost around five or six thousand on the small side and low-price end, while others cost more than a new addition on your house! So, how do you afford yours?

You can:

  • Use your tax refund as the down payment and then make monthly payments
  • Put your spa on layaway—once it is paid in full, the pool contractors will come out to install it
  • Finance the whole thing through the spa and pool retailer
  • Take out a home-equity loan for the purchase and installation of your spa
  • Find out whether your insurance company will cover the cost if you have a long-term pain disorder like MS or MD

Any one of the above routes should help you purchase and afford your new spa tub. Talk to a company such as Eastgate Pools to get started.

ideas for custom-built pools

The only thing that was missing from the home that my husband and I bought was a swimming pool. I knew that I wanted one before we sold our last house and purchased the new one. Not having a pool wasn't enough to keep me from buying the new house because I knew I could customize a pool to be installed. If you are considering having a custom-built pool installed on your property, this blog can give you some ideas that will help you create a wonderful setting for you, your family and all of your friends to enjoy.
