We had been thinking about getting a hot tub for a number of years. We even had the garden prepped with the foundation for one when we decked it.
The time came to make our purchase. I had been looking at HTS for some time but what made us bring the purchase forward was the interest free option. This has allowed us to buy our tub a year earlier than anticipated.
I had done a bit of research regarding the ‘microsilk’ option and this is what we decided upon. I wanted a tub with two loungers so we opted for the ‘Aspire Microsilk’ in Mother of Pearl shell and Midnight Grey cabinet. I also wanted a couple of extras, being an ultra violet sanitizer and a hot air blower. This meant that we had the full works to keep the water as clean as possible as this complimented the ozone generator. After speaking with Arun he confirmed this was not a problem.
The tub arrived about three months later. Due to the location of our house it had to be craned over three gardens to its final resting place. Again this was not a problem getting the lift organised. A few days later the engineer arrived to commission the tub and fit the extras I had ordered. A couple of days later it was up and running. Obviously it takes getting used to how everything works.
Seven months later, I think I have got it worked out to how we like to use the tub. We have one of the filter cycles running every night on off peak electricity. This also keeps the water up to temperature. The tub has the Wi-Fi option so if we know we are going to use the tub that day we remotely turn the tub to ‘ready in rest’ mode a couple of hours before. Most of the time we run the microsilk option about ten minutes before entering. I suffer from dry skin on my fingers and I find using the microsilk does have benefits. Then we use the other functions as and when.
One of the reasons for getting a tub was after a skiing holiday some years ago. The chalet we stayed in had a hot tub outside. It was surreal sitting in a lovely warm pool during snowfall and an air temperature of freezing point!. We thought we would have a long wait to do the same with ours. However in December we had a good deal of snowfall. It was the ideal opportunity to try our tub. It did not disappoint us.
After the tub was fitted we have since installed artificial grass and a pergola complete with a lighting system which we like, and so do our neighbours! We are now looking forward to the summer months.
