Imagine taking it easy lying back in the sun with a glass of wine in your hand, listening to your favourite music or even watching a dvd while being gently massaged by thousands of tiny bubbles… welcome to the joys of owning your own hot tub! Stepping into your very own hot tub may seem like an indulgence, but it is truly an extraordinary, rejuvenating way to improve your overall health.

Hot tub construction
Most modern hot tubs are manufactured using a vacuum forming system, the
acrylic base is made by placing the sheet over a mold and heating with an overhead heater while pulling a vacuum on the mold. Another manufacturing process of modern day hot tubs is called rotational molding which involves placing polyethylene powder in an aluminum mold which is then heated and spun in a large oven so that the plastic melts and takes the form of the mold.

understructure of the shell provides the strength needed to support hundreds of gallons of water and the weight of the bathers. substructure is generally made of fibreglass. Some manufacturers build a self-supporting shell, while others use secondary supports of wood or metal under the seats or in high-stress areas to reduce the amount of fibreglass required. The cabinet around the hot tub serves as both an enclosure for the plumbing and a decorative covering of base and the plumbing below, the cabinet can be made from wood (especially cedar) but synthetic materials are becoming increasingly popular because they require relatively little maintenance to keep their appearance looking nice.

The plumbing of a hot tub consists of a pressure system that delivers water to the jets and a suction system returning water to the pumps. The water is also passed throug a filtration system to help clean the water.
