A hot tub is a large tub or small pool full of heated water which is used for soaking, relaxation, hydromp3y, reading, or meditation. Hot tubs are frequently located out-of-doors although they may be sheltered against sun, rain, wind, or snow. You will find many hot tubs in areas that are colder, and all over many ski resorts. Hot tubs are a great way to enjoy the cold out doors whilst still staying warm. There are a few different kinds of hot tubs, including Soaking Tubs, Spas, and Bathtubs.
Soaking tubs are constructed much like a very large barrel with wooden slats. The water within is usually still, circulated only for the purposes of heating and filtering it. The tub is often inset within a wooden deck and is entered from that deck. Seating within the tub usually takes the form of wooden benches or a seat that forms a ring around the inner circumference of the tub.
Spa tubs are very different from the soaking tub. These are usually less deep and manufactured from fiberglass-reinforced plastic formed into shapes that provide a variety of seating arrangements within the tub. Each seat is usually equipped with hydromp3y jets that allow a forceful flow of water to be directed at various parts of the body. The water flow may be aerated for additional effect and some or all of the jets may also automatically move or rotate, causing the changing pressure of the water on the body to provide a massage-like effect.
Much smaller spas are now commonly available for installation within an ordinary bathroom. Resembling conventional bathtubs, they are filled afresh for each use, don't contain any heating or filtration mechanisms, and usually contain just one hydromp3y water circuit. They may accommodate one or sometimes two people simultaneously. They are the small, bathtub equivalent to a hot tub.
