What’s the #2 Reason People Hate Their Hot Tubs?

May 15, 2012

You guessed it!  It’s hot tub noise. A noisy hot tub can ruin your sanity.

Quiet Hot Tubs Make Good Neighbors

Did you know that one of the biggest summertime complaints to city officials is hot tub noise?  That’s right.  Noise from a neighbor’s hot tub.  If it’s annoying to neighbors,  think how bad it is for the owners.

Why do people get rid of a perfectly good dishwasher and buy a noise free Bosch? You got it, it’s the appeal of not having to hear that incessant noise.

Peace starts at home with a noise-free Hot Spring Spa

Now you’ll understand why Olympic sells new Hot Spring spas to customers who bought brand X the first time around. It’s the noise that’s hard to take.

Your hot tub should promote peace for you and your neighbors.

Nobody wants to live next door to a car with a grinding motor in the middle of the night, which is how most hot tub pumps sound when the timer switches on to filter and heat. That can induce more stress than even a hot tub can heal.

Hot Spring Spa is the only hot tub engineered for no noise from heating and filtering. Hot Spring Spas filter all of the water 24/7 with a no-noise circulation pump that uses less energy than a 40-watt light bulb.

Noise hurts. It’s not just annoying – Noise Free America reports that long-term exposure to 65 decibels or more, and short-term exposure to 80 decibels or more, can have serious physical and mental effects.

Noise triggers the stressful “fight or flight” reaction, releasing cortisol and other harmful chemicals into the bloodstream that can build up and lead to cardiovascular disease, aggression, chronic fatigue, headaches, high blood pressure, mental illness, and anxiety. Noise also affects the endocrine and autonomic nervous systems. It can exacerbate mental health problems such as anxiety, stress, emotional instability, sexual impotence, mood swings and social conflicts. Noise really makes you tired – it’s a major cause of chronic fatigue syndrome – and it can contribute to high blood pressure and ulcers.

So when you go shopping for a hot tub, use your ears.

That rules out buying online, where you’re pretty much guaranteed to get a cheap noisy model no matter what you pay.

When you visit a showroom, ask to hear what the full tub sounds like when the heating and filtering mode is on. If the model is dry, that’s a sign the sound wouldn’t be pretty. And if you plan to put your tub on a deck or balcony, remember that a noisy pump is going to sound even worse on the vibrating floor.

Don’t trust your ears? Add the Decibel Meter Pro app to your smart phone and use it when you shop.

With Hot Spring Spa’s no-noise filtration system, you can put your tub on a deck or next to a window.  It’s stress-free peace, and peace of mind, so you can relax.  So can your neighbor.

Hot tub shopping? Put a Hot Spring at Olympic Hot Tub Company at the top of your list.  Come try one and hear the quiet for yourself.
