If you’re looking to conserve more water, the solution may be in a surprising place: the hot tub in your backyard. That’s because using a hot tub is actually less water-intensive than a majority of activities that require water at home.
Here’s how: while the average household consumes 400 gallons of water each day, daily hot tub water consumption is roughly just 1% of that amount.
It’s easy to see how water usage can add up quickly, especially when a single toilet flush alone uses 3-5 gallons of water and a single load of laundry uses an upwards of 40 gallons per. load.
However, hot tubs only need to be re-filled once every few months, meaning that a hot tub does not put the kind of daily strain on our water supply that something like regular long, hot showers or baths do. That means that taking a dip in the hot tub to soothe sore muscles is actually doing the Earth a bigger favor than jumping in the shower.
Not to mention that the quality of pain and muscle relief that you experience in a hot tub will be significantly higher than than traditional soaking methods of relief for ailments like arthritis, fibromyalgia, and stress. Hot tubs like those in the Hot Spring Limelight Collection are built for therapeutic relief and feature jets specifically designed to loosen tight muscles and ease stiff joints.
So the next time your back starts to act up or your shins are aching, take a step out of the shower and take a dip in your hot tub instead. It’s the Earth-wise choice!
