-- Vista, CA--With the economy still on the rebound, many people are looking for smaller hot tubs for a variety of reasons, causing the plug-and-play hot tub market -- which has been around for 10 plus years -- to grow considerably. You may be wondering what the phrase “plug and play” refers to -- simply put, it means that these tubs are designed to operate on 15 amps (maximum) and can be easily connected to a common household 110 outlet - the same power you use for a blow dryer!
The affordability, versatility & ease of use these models provide makes them perfect for those who would like to downsize -- as is the case for many moving from larger homes into smaller ones and for empty nesters whose kids have moved out and the large, family-size hot tub is no longer necessary.
Plug-and-play hot tubs offer a number of advantages over larger, traditional hot tubs. The most obvious is their easy, no-cost installation, which offers instant gratification in that most plug-and-play hot tubs can be delivered same-day, setup, plugged in and enjoyed immediately. In contrast with traditional hot tubs, which depending on the installation and permit process, can take up to a week, or sometimes longer before they are ready to be used. And often, a concrete slab or wooden platform needs to be built to hold a standard-sized tub or the homeowner may decide to have a tub installed below ground, which requires digging and reinforcing.
In addition, with the latest design and technology advances, plug-and-play hot tubs have become even more energy efficient, have bigger motors, more jets and even feature items like LED lighting and waterfalls which are only typically found on larger, more expensive hot tubs. The latest portable hot tub models are also more versatile design oriented -- for example, D1’s Elemental home spa is completely customizable and comes in many colors, with a variety of accents and even a canvas feature, which allows you to paint your own designs.
Elemental has the same LED lighting used in D1’s top-of-the line collection as well as accent pieces made out of solid aluminum, circuit massage seats and a hard, full-foam cover that makes it extremely energy efficient, on average costing only $7/month to run.
Today’s Plug & Play hot tubs are advanced enough to offer the latest in hydrotherapy while staying small enough to offer everyone an affordable escape in their own backyard, patio or balcony. To learn more about Elemental, visit www.myelemental.com
