Reading and relaxing often go hand-in-hand, and many people like to enjoy a hot tub with a good piece of literature. Reading in a hot tub provides a peaceful time. Bring a real book with you or a waterproof device that holds e-books. The hot tub you choose can make a big difference in your reading experience.
Check out some hot tub features that cater directly to reading. The features offer other benefits as well and can become an integral part of your hot tub experience.
1. Lounge Deck
As you soak in a hot tub, you may feel obligated to hold onto the book the whole time while you relax in the water. Otherwise, you would have to get up, get out, and set the book down somewhere else. Stay immersed in the hot water and easily take a break from the book with a lounge deck.
A hot tub with a lounge deck features a flat dry surface. Easily set a book down and relax. Leave a small hand towel on the lounge deck to dry your hands when you’re ready to grab the book again. A lounge deck also offers an alternative seating option. Sit on the deck and just soak your feet in the water while you read.
Many hot tub lounge decks also double as a storage area. The storage space is ideal for snacks, drinks, and other reading materials like magazines.
2. Quiet Pumps and Blowers
Hot tub readers often like a quiet experience. The last thing you likely want are loud jet, pump, or hot water heater disruptions. When you shop for a new hot tub, consider quiet pump and blower technology. Hot tub companies have made many advancements in reducing the noise in and around a hot tub. The cabinetry on the exterior of a hot tub helps block sound.
Modern pumps are quiet and more energy-efficient. If you visit a hot tub store in person, check out some of the models in operation to listen. Video reviews and features also help showcase the sounds if you’re unable to hear them in person.
A quiet hot tub will make a big difference, especially if you enjoy massage jets while you read in the water.
3. Built-In Lights
One of the biggest challenges of reading outdoors is dealing with natural light. As the sun sets, you may struggle to read. Floodlights or deck lighting will help illuminate a book, along with lights built right into a hot tub. Lights around the edges of a hot tub also provide extra illumination and direct lights on a book.
Some hot tubs feature light dimmer options. Adjust the brightness of lights to provide plenty of illumination to see the book. Easy touch controls allow you to change the brightness of the lights without the need to get out of the hot tub. Once you finish reading, you can dim the lights and enjoy the warm water.
4. Bluetooth Speakers
As a book lover, you may choose to listen to your books rather than read them all the time. Shop for a hot tub with Bluetooth speaker technology to listen to audiobooks. The wireless speakers allow you to keep your phone or other device away from the hot tub and still clearly hear an audiobook.
Bluetooth controls built right into the hot tub may include volume controls and track options. Skip chapters or select a different book without getting out of the hot tub. Some hot tubs include Bluetooth speakers as part of the initial package. Include the Bluetooth speakers with your hot tub installation.
