During the winter months, your hot tub can be used to spend more time outdoors as you relax in the warm water and are not as exposed to the cold air.

Ignoring these elements can lead to major problems for the hot tub and result in poor performance when you use the hot tub.
Relaxing in a hot tub is a great way to soothe sore muscles and enjoy the warm waters. The modern advances in hot-tub technology allow people to do a lot more than just sit in the warm water. If you're a football fan, then the installation of a hot tub can make it a lot easier to watch games while simmering in the water. Setting up a television or using a projection screen outdoors is a lot easier these days and can make your hot tub a great location to enjoy some football action.
Some large dogs are natural swimmers that love the water and can swim for long periods of time. For many small dogs, this is not the case. Smaller dogs may not like the water or have the strength to swim for long periods of time. During the summer, you may want to find ways to keep your small dog cooled off without forcing them to swim. If you're considering a new pool installation, then there are a number of features that can cater directly to your dog.
