MLP Sidewall Light 1908Pictured: LED Sidwall/Footwell LightMood Lighting Package (MLP™)

Artists use color to set the mood in their paintings.  Film makers and theatrical producers use color extensively to create a mood in films and plays. They know that combinations of color depict different moods.  We know that in the hot tub industry as well!

Lighting in a hot tub can be purely functional, such as it’s important to see where you are going while entering or exiting the water.  However, using LED lights to give the water an ethereal glow of soft, gently transitioning color can visually enhance your hot tub experience.  It creates a calming mood and helps you relax and fully enjoy the benefits of hot water therapy.

Our Mood Lighting Package (MLP™) includes LED sconce lights on the exterior corners of the cabinet. These lights not only illuminate the way but help set a serene mood around your hot tub.  An LED footwell or sidewall light (placement depends on the tub model) creates the beautiful glow from within the water. 

MLP™ is available as an optional upgrade on select “All-In” 110V Series hot tubs, on all Classic Series hot tubs and the Bella MS.

Make sure to add the MLP™ package when you order your new Nordic Hot Tub!

Preparing your Hot Tub for Winter

Posted in Hot Tubs

Warrior-Round-Tub-Snowball-fight-430x297We recommend you keep using it through Winter!  Enjoy the falling snow while sitting in a hot tub.

But if you decide to close the spa for Winter, follow these steps:
  • Add a degreaser to the water for about 24 hours prior to draining.
  • Remove all hot tub water
  • Remvove the filter from the skimmer and clean the area well
  • Use a recommended filter cleaner and soak the filter in a bucket
  • Clean the cartridge and be sure to remove any debris
  • Once again, use a wet-vac to remove any remaining water
  • Clean all the surfaces
  • Release all the plugs and open the drain
  • Turn off all power and unplug the spa
  • Place the cover back on - be sure to lock it
Now your tub is ready for the Winter months.

Add a Cover Lifter

cover-rx-imageIf you have never owned a cover lift system now is the time to be thinking about one.  Most Nordic Hot Tub owners do a last drain and fill prior to the winter, this is a good time to purchase and install a cover lifter. 

The lifter will make life much easier in winter by allowing the cover to open, lift up and hang in place on the back side of the tub.  No fighting to set it to the side and no struggling to get it back on. 

We recommend the Cover RX by Cover Valet, this model has a plate that slides under the tub and requires no attaching to the cabinet.

Starting up your new Hot Tub

Posted in Hot Tubs

Stella-folded-handsStart Up

With your Nordic Hot Tub in its factory setting, begin with start up.  Be sure to read your owner's manual before proceeding:
  1. Turn off all electrical power to the equipment at the circuit breaker
  2. Be sure the hot tub's gate valves are open
  3. Be sure that the drain valve is closed. Otherwise it will take forever to fill - literally.
  4. Clean inside the Hot Tub with a mild, non-abrasive, non-foaming cleaner.
  5. Check the filter - ensure a proper fitting.
  6. With a hose, fill hot tub with clean cold water to level specified in owner's manual. IMPORTANT: A low water level can damage the pump and heater element.
  7. Be sure to open the equipment door and check for any leaks around union fittings. Tighten if necessary.
  8. Turn on power at the circuit breaker.
  9. Set the hot tub's controls per the manual.

Where do I place the Hot Tub at home?

Posted in Hot Tubs

Choosing the Hot Tub Or Spa Site

Whether indoors or outdoors, the placement of a hot tub or spa is a very personal decision.  You need to based the placement on your intended use and the features of your home / property.

Create a special area if you have scenic view of a secluded grove of trees; the Hot Tub will enhance this location.  If you are placing it indoors, be sure you have a large enough space (remember the service areas).  If you need ot expand an existing room, it may cost a few more dollars, but it will add to the value of your home.

Hot Tub Weight Loss

Posted in Health Benefits

Can you lose weight in a hot tub?

Fat, no. But you sweat in a hot tub. You just don't notice because you are in the water.  So any weight loss is water weight.

We recommend for the Best Hot Tub on the Market for Weight loss (a Nordic of course), the temperature setting should not be above 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you are drinking beverages in the tub, the net is zero - as far as water weight.
If those beverages have carbs - a definite no.

Hot Tub Tax Deduction

Posted in Health Benefits

 Claiming a tax deduction for your Hot Tub:

The IRS stated in its opinion letter Index No.: 213.05-00, " Section 213(a) allows as a [tax] deduction the expenses paid during the taxable year for medical care of the taxpayer, spouse, or dependent. Under § 213(d)(1)(A), an expense is for 'medical care' if its primary purpose is the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease.   Notice the words "primary purpose".  Because a hot tub or spa is of a particularly personal nature, you must establish that your hot tub is "primarily" for the cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease before you can deduct the cost of your hot tub on your tax return.  You may be able to claim your hot tub as a tax deduction even though you also derive pleasure from it and even though someone else such as your spouse may use the spa, as long as you are buying the hot tub or spa primarily to relieve pain due to an injury or disease.

You can also claim a deduction for the hot tub as a capital expense even if it is an improvement to your home.  Click here to read the IRS information.
