Posted on January 9, 2008 by , in 2. Hot Tubs & Gazebos

2008 is here at long last and the hot tub sale season has begun in earnest.  We have spoken to a wide range of hot tub suppliers who are running sales throughout January to clear 2007 hot tub models and display hot tubs.  If you are going to be in the market to buy a hot tub in the Spring start shopping around now to see what deals are on offer.  Most hot tub companies will allow you to take advantage of January offers and take delivery in the Spring if you have some preparation to do in the garden.

Don’t forget to wet test and good luck with your hot tub bargain hunting.

Hot Tub Sale

Hot Tub Sale

Santa’s sleighbells are ringing and the Christmas and New Year festivities are fast approaching. For the uninitiated, sitting in the warm swirling water of a hot tub may seem strange, but on the contrary, hot tubbers around the UK are gleefully welcoming the colder weather and cranking up the temperature of their bubbling hot tubs in readiness for the Christmas holidays.

 Hot tubs are much more enjoyable in winter and although we get fairly mild winters, there is only one thing on our reader’s minds when the snow starts falling and that is to lift back the steaming cover on their hot tubs and sink into the soothing warm  water.  Anyone who has been in a warm outdoor pool at a spa hotel or centerparcs in the depths of winter will get the idea.  The feeling is second to none!

The great news is that we are only 14 days from Xmas and more importantly only 20 days away from New Years Eve.  I’ll let you into a secret…behind the humdrum facias of UK homes, there will be around 200,000 familes celebrating the New Year at midnight in the luxury of their very own hot tubs, watching other peoples fireworks from the comfort of their favourite hot tub seat.  So if you know anyone who has a hot tub, make sure that you start buttering them up now to try to get an invite for the champagne New Years Eve hot tub fun…it really is the only way to bring in the New Year.

By the way, it’s not too late of you want to celebrate New Years Eve in your own hot tub, there are some cracking deals to be had at this time of year as December is traditionally the slowest month for hot tub retailers and a time when you can get your negotiating skills polished up and secure a fantastic hot tub deal.  Happy hot tubbing!

hot tubs cheshireShopping for hot tubs in Cheshire will never be the same again following the launch of a brand new hot tubs outlet in Knutsford this week.  Outdoor Heaven is a hot tubs showroom with a difference…Director Adrian Lee tells us why. “We’ve put a massive investment into creating not just a one-stop shopping experience for hot tub and swimming pools clients across Cheshire and the North West, but also in building a showroom that offers only the very best products available in the region” says Adrian.

Partnering with Dimension One hot tubs and Softub has been an obvious choice for Adrian and his team who wanted to offer the very best hot tubs that the market has to offer. “D1 have been just fabulous and we are proud to be part of such a dominant global brand network” says Adrian.  “Our challange now is to make sure that our clients get the kind of service and knowhow that they deserve in line with our premium product offering” Adrian goes on.

For readers looking for some hot tub ideas regarding the installation of their new hot tubs, our Garden Ideas page will be relaunched in the next few months to include some of the fabulous photos that What Spa readers have sent in to us. In the meantime we will be posting some of them up to our hot tub blog for your perusal.  Here is one that we received today which gives an idea how a simple hot tub gazebo can really enhance the hot tub environment and make for an all-year-round haven for hot tubbing in all weathers.

Thank you to Mrs A Irwin for sending her photo to us.Hot Tubs
