A new survey have surfaced (sorry fur the pun) covering how often people actually use their hot tubs and the results are far more than expected.
Hot Spring®, the only brand to sell more than one million hot tubs, has completed a new survey on consumer perceptions and real-life uses of hot tubs from more than 700 respondents. Results from the survey indicate that hot tub owners cite the wellness benefits of a personal spa more frequently than non-owners expect.
Only 32% of non hot tub owners anticipated the owners would use the tub before bedtime, whereas the survey showed that this figure was actually 45%.
13% of hot tub owners considered that owning a hot tub actually added value to their home as opposed to 6% of non owners.
Around 11% of owners said that they regularly have a morning dip in their hot tub, compared to our 2% of non owners prediction.
The survey also asked questions about wellness benefits and those who considered the spa to being an actual wellness appliance rather than just a hot tub. Surprisingly but the main reason (84% of those asked) for purchasing a hot tub, was for relaxation and stress relief, where non owners only accounted for 65%
Other wellness reasons why hot tub owners purchased their tub was for better sleep (33%), help with exercise recovery (49%) and recovering from injury (20%)
Other past times and activities that owners referred to as helping wellness were drinking alcoholic beverages (20%) and going to the gym (6%)
