The hot tubs, also referred to as whirlpools and whirlpools, are medium to large tubs that are filled with water heated with a natural gas, solar or electric heater. A hot tub is usually designed to be kept outdoors and is generally used for hydrotherapy, bathing and relaxation. Due to the fact that hot water is often a breeding ground for many types of dangerous organisms, water treatment and sanitation of the pool regularly are very important.
Most historians agree that heated water was first used in Egypt for therapeutic reasons as early as 2000 BC. Then, it was thought that heated natural water possessed powerful healing properties. The remains of the first baths built in the world have been found and date back to six hundred years and were created from simple cauldrons filled with heated stones.
Primitive heated pools and spas started to appear in ancient Finland and Japan a few decades later and are still extremely popular today. Their complexes were considered important social centers and were known to contain rooms for whirlpools, private laundries, Turkish baths and massage rooms.
At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the popularity and use of the hot tub had made its way into America and western Europe. There, attending the baths was considered an important part of a comfortable and kind lifestyle. Over time, bathing houses have evolved and have started to include things like casinos, shopping centers and even hotels.
In the mid-forties, smaller versions of whirlpool tubs began to appear in modern American homes. They remembered the largest bathing centers and were generally made of large oak barrels and cedar vats. These early prototypes were manufactured at low cost and were often subject to losses. In the mid-1960s, people began building more stable spas from shaved smoke to wood and wood-fired heaters. These devices resembled today’s hot tub and offered better water circulation that helped promote hygiene.
The popularity of the product quickly began to spread throughout the country and was produced in a way that allowed the average bourgeois American to afford one of them. The spa has proved extremely beneficial for anyone suffering from arthritis or muscle pain and has proved very relaxing for those who want to relax at the end of a busy day.
Eventually, the products began to be assembled and fabricated with fiberglass shells to prevent the wooden boxes from losing and deforming. The shells not only prevented leaks, but allowed the manufacturers to model the ergonomic seats and ensure the cleanliness of the heated water.
The waterproof fiberglass shells are not enough to keep the bacteria away from you, to ensure the safety of your pool you must undertake regular cleaning and water changes. Maintaining the pH balance and the water chemistry of the product will help prevent the spread of any waterborne diseases. The special cleaning kits for chemicals and water are available at any pool or hardware store.
