    Hot tubs

    Anyone got one ? I have and its the best 400 i have ever spent ! ( Apart fae ma season ticket !) I have the water levels with the chlorine crystals and the PH thingy to a tee so the water is clear and clean, But my question to anyone that has one is even when your NOT using the tub do you still put in the dailly intake of chlorine granules ?..Every morning i throw in 2 teaspoons off chlorine granules as the manual tells me to do so so by the time i get in it later on the water is crystal clear but if i was to not use my tub for say a week i wasn't sure if i'm still to throw in the allocated amount of granules dailly ?

    Another thing, It tells me to leave the tub plugged in all the time even when not in use, A dinnae hink so the plug would get soaked !

    Always wanted to get a hot tub in my garden. Any idea how much it costs to run per year?

    400 for a hot tub? I thought they were an order of magnitude more than that.

    My garden is overlooked unfortunately so either way I'll save the neighbours the sight of me in speedos.

    You can get pergola/gazebo type structures that give a little privacy. There's a house up Craigmount way that has one, I walked passed one winter evening and you could see the steam rising and hear the chinking of glasses along with too much hilarity for my liking,,,personally I think they were one step away from throwing the car keys into the fruit bowl!
