Top Things to Consider When Buying a Hot Tub in Jackson, MS

Publication date : Monday, September 28th, 2020

Thinking about surprising your family and friends with a portable hot tub in Jackson? This is one purchase you won’t regret as it can benefit everyone in different ways. Some people use spas to unwind and relax, while others find relief from their arthritis or joint pain. Sitting in a hot tub can also promote weight loss, reduce high blood pressure, lower blood sugar levels and promote healthy sleep. 

As you consider your options for hot tubs in Jackson, here are the top things to think about. 

Price: How Much Should You Spend? 

Hot tubs can cost as little as $3,000 and as much as $15,000+. And like most items, the more you spend, the more luxurious your jacuzzi will be. Some higher-end features include LED lighting, audio systems, hydrotherapy jets and reclining seats. 

Even if you’re on a tight budget, avoid going too low because you could end up spending more in the long run. Balance your budget with quality materials, efficient insulation and durable components. On average, our customers spend around $7,000 for a decent, budget-friendly spa. 

Location: Where Should You Install Your Spa? 

Think about where you want your hot tub installed. Installing it on a deck or in-ground provides the easiest access, but this isn’t possible with all spaces. If you do choose above-ground installation, pick a level area that offers privacy and easy access. We also recommend installing the spa near your home so that you can get indoors quickly, especially in the winter. 

Size: What Size Should You Pick? 

To maximize the use and function of your spa, it’s important to select the right size. Start by measuring your space so that you know how big you can go. Remember to account for walking room. Also, think about who will be using your hot tub. It’s best if everyone has a seat to get the full experience of the therapeutic jets and massagers. 

Water Care System: How Will You Keep the Water Clean? 

As with swimming pools, hot tubs require maintenance. There are different approaches to water care, including manually adding spa chemicals in Jackson or purchasing a water care system. Hot tub water care systems are a popular option for spa owners because they keep the water clean and ready for enjoyment. Be sure to factor in this cost so that you can properly maintain your spa. 

Function: What Will I Use the Hot Tub For? 

It’s tempting to choose the highest end spa with all the latest features, but it’s not necessary. Instead, consider what you will be using the hot tub for. Relaxing after a long day of work? Soothing tired, sore muscles after a workout? Easing arthritis pain? Socializing with friends and family? Knowing how you plan on using your spa will determine the features worth paying for. 

Examples of what you can add to your spa include: 

  • High-flow therapy system
  • Hot tub jets
  • Adjustable lighting 
  • Bluetooth audio system
  • Soothing waterfalls 
  • Self-cleaning technology 
  • Aromatherapy 
  • Cool-down seats 
  • Deep bucket seats

Health Benefits of Jacuzzis

Hot tubs are for more than soaking and relaxing! These amazing spas have a wide range of health benefits that we are going to share with you!

Improved Sleep

If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, a hot tub can help turn the night time blues around. Your mind and body need a regular cycle of REM sleep, as this is what creates dreams, promotes learning and increases brain activity. By getting enough REM sleep each night, you can look forward to increased immunity, enhanced mental alertness and improved concentration.

How does a hot tub promote healthy sleep habits?

When you get into a hot, bubbly spa before bedtime, your body temperature becomes comfortably warm. This helps you fall asleep faster and sleep through the night without waking up. Of course, don’t sit in the hot tub too close to bed, as you could end up hot and sweaty, negatively affecting REM sleep.

Reduced Stress and Anxiety

We all need ways to de-stress, and jumping into a hot tub at the end of a long work day is one of them. Soaking for just 20 minutes has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety. When you climb into the hot tub, the warm water is soothing to tired, sore muscles, and the built-in spa jets massage the back. Feeling weightless in the water is also helpful for treating anxiety.

Lowered Blood Pressure

The higher water temperature in a spa encourages your heart to work faster. You might think that this would make your blood pressure higher, but it actually makes it lower. Initially, your blood pressure will be raised. But, as the cells and vessels get bigger in response to the heat, your body’s circulation is increased, lowering your blood pressure. Additionally, the toasty conditions create more oxygen, which is used to rejuvenate cells.

Faster Healing

Living in chronic pain can be debilitating. Fortunately, having a hot tub in your backyard allows you to escape from this discomfort at any time. Jacuzzis are effective at relieving body aches and pains as a result of arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome or physical injuries. The healing is a result of the increased blood circulation and improved oxygen flow from the hot water. This brings nutrients to the muscles, helping them to relax and decrease inflammation.

Better Skin Care

Whirlpools can also do wonders for your skin. The hot water opens up your pores to rejuvenate the skin and help it heal. The steamy water also cleans and disinfects the skin. Less than 20 minutes is all that is needed for healthy skin care. Too long in the hot tub can lead to irritation and dryness. If you would like, you can add essential oils to your soaks that will help you target your goals, such as improved skin care, better sleep or increased immunity.

Enjoy Fall Nights in Your Hot Tub!

Publication date : Friday, October 21st, 2016

If you have a hot tub in your backyard, don’t even think about closing it up just yet! This is a wonderful time of the year to sit in your spa on a cool fall evening, looking up at the clear night sky.

Here in Mississippi, you can find use for your hot tub almost every night of the year because the temperatures never dip that low. Yet for some reason, many people choose to close up their hot tubs at the same time they do their pools, probably to take a break from the maintenance. We think it’s better to enjoy your investment and make the most of it!

Here are some creative ways to enjoy your hot tub in this fall season.

Night Sky Watching


The nights are longer in the fall, and you don’t have to wait until 9 o’clock forthe stars to appear. You can enjoy an early evening in the hot tub with the family, looking up at the stars and checking out the constellations.

Another supermoon will be taking place in November, and the Geminid meteor shower can be seen in December. For more night sky events, check out this 2016 guide from

Start a New Book (or TV) Series

If your hot tub is purely for some me-time, why not take a dip in the evenings and read your favorite book? Some people love pouring themselves a hot bubble bath and taking their favorite book with them, but you don’t have to mess with extra water, bubbles or the water turning cold after 20 minutes.

If you’re not much of a reader, start a new TV series instead. With streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, it’s possible to watch an entire season – or five – over the course of a few weeks!

Check out the Birds (and Foliage!)

Set up a bird feeder near your hot tub and enjoy watching the birds stop by on their migration to the south. You’ll probably see some pretty neat ones! Don’t forget to soak in the beauty of the trees as well. Here in MS, hickory, oak, maple and other hardwood trees all change color!


Prepare for Cold and Flu Seasonscreen-shot-2016-10-21-at-11-59-18-am

As wonderful as autumn is, it’s also the jumpstart to cold and flu season. Many households see 6-9 colds come their way, particularly those with young children. Luckily, your hot tub can offer your family some better health and immunity during cold and flu season.

Some of the ways that hot tubs boost wellness is by improving sleep, soothing tired and sore muscles, increasing blood circulation and sweating out toxins. You can read more about the health benefits of a spa in this article from Swim University
