Hot tubs have been an integral part of people’s lives in North America and Canada for the past 25 years. Humans in general have benefited form hot water bathing for hundreds of years however only in the last 25 years have we seen portable hot tubs being used in residential gardens.
Portable hot tubs in UK gardens is a very recent development really only establishing itself around the year 2000 onwards. That said, figures suggest that in the UK there are around 250,000 households with hot tubs in their gardens.
What are the benefits of having a hot tub in your garden I hear you ask? Well for starters they are lots of fun, many tubers find them a great place to spend quality time with family and friends (the new kitchen table). Using a hot tub will also give you a good excuse to use your garden all year round.
Reports also suggest that a hot tub will not only increase the value of your house but will make it more sell-able. The therapeutic benefits of using a hot tub are endless, increased blood flow, relief from aching muscles and joints, reduced anxiety and stress, aids sleep and removes toxins from your body.
Arctic Spa’s are a Canadian brand with a reputation for building the most beautiful, powerful, robust and economical hot tubs in the world. These four key features do not come about by mistake, an Arctic Spa has to be built to run efficiently and continuously during extreme weather conditions. Arctic manufacture in Edmonton Alberta, many of the tubs will spend most of there lives working in -45°C temperatures and sometimes even being covered in snow.
Where do we fit into all of this?
We became Arctic Spa dealers in 2005. We cover Edinburgh the Lothian’s and the Borders (we’ve been known to cover other areas when asked). We now have over 200 spas out there and we are increasing sales year on year.
In 2008 we recorded our best trading year to date becoming Arctic Spa’s number 2 dealer in the UK. It would be fair to say that Scotland has been left behind slightly in the hot tub revolution however it’s catching up fast. A common misconception is that we don’t have the weather for hot tubing, actually we have a perfect climate for it. As stated before the Canadians use their tubs all year round including during the severe winters. Any hot tub owner will tell you that their favourite time to use there spa is during winter.
