When is the Best Season to Use a Spa?

Are you considering purchasing a spa but you aren’t sure of the best time to use it? Here, we break down the seasonal benefits of enjoying your spa or hot tub all year-round.


Sometimes the colder temperatures, snowy weather, and overall harsh conditions can paint quite a brutal picture in some parts of the country. Shoveling, heat bills, and cabin fever can be in the forefront while also negotiating single digits, slippery ice, and an overall lack of sun. Dealing with all of these things can be stressful and sometimes be taxing on your body and your muscles. Sometimes by the end of a long winter’s day your mood is low, and a relaxation pick me up may be exactly what you are needing.

With this in mind, a great way to defrost and calm down from a long frigid day is a warm soak in a hot tub. Think of watching the cold snow fall while you stay warm and relaxed in 101°F water. When the snow falls, don’t even worry about it as it’s no big deal at all. Our Strong Spas, regardless of the model, can definitely take the weight of any heavy wet snow that is thrown its way. The spa cover, composed with Strong’s Dura Shield™ technology will keep the spa covered and fully protected at all times. This cover is patented technology and is best in class all while coming with a lifetime warranty. Don’t let winter get in the way of enjoying your spa.


Spring is a great time for awakening. The weather is warming up but not to the heat of summer just yet. Gone are the ice and snow, while the sun is out and shining. You venture outside, only to find that those cold temperatures haven’t quite left yet. Even though summer is right around the corner, the desire for warmer temperatures can certainly be at the top of the wish list.

Spring is the perfect time to find those warmer temperatures when using a spa. Spring arrives with lots of sun and longer days that you mine as well take full advantage of. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, let the heat help open your sinuses to ease congestion, pressure, and headaches.


Summer brings more plans with family and friends, your “to do” list increases, and so do temperatures. Busy summer days include chores like mowing the lawn, gardening, and property maintenance. Busy summer days turn into fun summer nights and whether it’s hosting parties or having a few friends over, outside entertainment is always popular.

Strong Spas fit anywhere from five to seven people depending on the model. This size is perfect for a party or a small gathering. Sore muscles from a day of household chores? A solo soak involving some quality hydrotherapy, and relaxation, may be just the ticket.


The fall season brings uneven temperatures that drop drastically overnight and rebound during the day. The temperature differences are usually linked to an increase in sickness and the start of the dreaded flu season. Staying hydrated, taking vitamins and generally taking good care of yourself is a start, but you could in fact be doing even more.

Research has shown that soaking in a hot tub decreases stress which could be directly linked to improving your immune system. Being proactive about your health by setting time aside to relax and enjoy your spa in the convenience of your home could create lasting effects on your health overall.
