The Best Hot Tub Controls To Keep Your Spa Ready and Waiting
For hot tub owners, the best part of the day is emerging from the spa. Because today’s high-tech hot tubs efficiently maintain temperature, your hot tub is always ready and waiting at your ideal personal settings. Intuitive hot tub controls allow for precise adjustments to temperature, jet massage action, soothing lights, and even music to set the mood whenever you’re ready for a soak.
Some hot tub control panels allow you to navigate the control menu and options with buttons; others operate through colorful touchscreen navigation, much like a smartphone interface. With Hot Spring®Highlife® Collection and Highlife NXT advanced touchscreen control panels, you can even remove the panel from its dock and use it as a remote control as you sit back and enjoy your relaxing soak. The best hot tub controls are as easy to use and reliable. Plus, because control functions are more specific, navigation is more streamlined than ever before.
HOW TO USE THE HOT TUB CONTROL PANEL TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR SOAK
A hot tub can be an important ally in your efforts to establish an active, balanced, and healthy lifestyle. The best hot tub for you is the one that allows you to personalize your wellness.
OPTIONS AND TIPS TO SET YOUR HOT TUB TEMPERATURE
The right hot tub temperature for therapeutic effect is entirely a matter of personal preference. So, it’s important to take time to discover the range of temperatures most comfortable for a full 20-minute soak. Choosing and setting the temperature from your control panel is easy. Simply toggle the temperature up or down, one degree at a time.
It’s also important to remember that in the summer, ambient air temperature will heat the spa even when the heater is off. For example, if you live in a city where daytime temperatures get very hot, a spa set to 96 degrees Fahrenheit can easily climb to 104 degrees or higher. So, you might want to consider a system that allows you to chill the water to as low as 60 degrees. With the CoolZone™ System from Hot Spring, you can enjoy a cool dip on a day and warm soak later that evening.
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR HOT TUB JET CONTROLS FOR A CUSTOM MASSAGE
Hot Spring spa jets have been carefully engineered and positioned to target different muscle groups. Your hot tub control panel also allows you to design your personalized hydro massage. From the Jet control menu, you can turn one or more jet pumps on and off; from the diverter controls on the bartop, you can adjust the intensity of jet streams. In time, you’ll get to know the levels of intensity that are therapeutic for different areas of your body and for different needs—deep muscle massage versus deep relaxation and calm.
SET THE MOOD WITH COLORED LED SPA LIGHTING
Each Hot Spring spa collection offers a LED lighting system specific to it. From the control panel, you can choose to display one color or rotate through all the colors automatically, display lights below the water, and control exterior lighting along the bartop and cabinet, including the full corner light bars unique to 2018 Limelight® models and the corner sconce lights on higher-end Hot Spring models LED spa lighting helps set the perfect ambiance.
MAKE YOUR SPA EXPERIENCE UNIQUE WITH AN ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM
With a Hot Springs spa, you have the option of adding an entertainment system, which you can control right from the panel. You can even enhance the system by opting for a TV monitor with HDMI convenience and wireless Bluetooth® technology, which allows you to pair your spa system with your smartphone or other devices and stream your favorite programs and movies. Adjust volume, bass, treble, and subwoofer levels direct from your hot tub control panel, even when you’re not in your spa.
CONTROL PANEL SETTINGS FOR EFFICIENCY AND SAFETY
Saving your preferred hot tub settings at the end of a soak is as easy as pushing a button. With Highlife and Limelight models, the Memory feature learns your specific combination of jet and light settings. The next time you get in the spa, simply activate the Memory to replicate your favorite settings.
If your Hot Spring spa is equipped with a circulation pump, the Summer Mode option on the control panel allows you to take advantage of the warmer air temperature and save on summer electricity bills. In Summer Mode, your spa’s heater and circulation pump turn off for 8 hours to save electricity.
Hot Spring even offers an advanced option to help you carefully monitor the health of your spa and to control certain settings from a distance. The Connextion® mobile app synchronizes with your hot tub and provides you and your local dealer with real-time information and control options remotely. By subscribing to Connextion, you’ll receive timely dealer attention when issues or service needs arise and convenient reminders to complete routine maintenance tasks. Connextion can be particularly useful for people who travel often or who own a hot tub located at a vacation or rental home.
USE THE HOT TUB CONTROLS TO KEEP SPA WATER CRYSTAL CLEAR
When spa water maintenance becomes a part of your weekly and monthly routines, you’ll enjoy crystal clear water with every soak and reduce the potential need for repairs down the road. With Hot Spring spas, water care is simple and intuitive—and achieved with the help of maintenance alerts that appear on your control panel. If you need guidance, your local dealer can show you how to recognize those alerts and take the guesswork out of the ideal combination of products and solutions for optimal spa health. When your water’s healthy equilibrium is maintained, it’s gentle on your skin and primed to keep water clean and free of algae, mold, and mildew.
Imagine kicking up your hot tub temperature by a couple of degrees right from the Connextion app on your phone as you leave work. The ability to ready your spa for the perfect tension-relieving soak whenever the mood hits is at your fingertips. Feel empowered to explore the unique spa experiences you can create with responsive hot tub controls.
