The therapeutic and restorative — if not entirely miraculous and age-defying — powers of natural hot springs has long been appreciated from Ancient Greece to modern Japan and even Native American culture. These self-sustaining hot mineral springs draw their heat from the earth’s core, providing natural cleansing and soothing for body and soul.
While visiting some of these natural wonders may be a worthwhile venture and satisfy your wanderlust, such travels probably aren’t feasible or practical on a regular basis. You can make similar benefits part of your daily ritual, though, with a salt water hot tub in your own back yard!
Relax More Easily with a Salt Water Hot Tub
A salt water hot tub, like a traditional hot tub, offers the potential of relaxation but without the negative effects of chemical water-quality systems. Salt provides the same level of water quality while offering your skin, hair, and eyes a softer, gentler treatment. Salt water has long been known for its unique rejuvenating and exfoliating properties. While chlorine is still part of a salt water hot tub system, its release is minimal, so you won’t smell the chemical odor that could otherwise disrupt your relaxation and the similarity to natural hot springs.
Enjoy Greater Convenience with a Salt Water Hot Tub
Not only will you appreciate the lack of harsh chemical effects compared to a traditional chlorine hot tub, but your salt water hot tub will actually use about half the amount of salt as a salt water pool uses and far less than human tears or ocean water; you won’t be able to taste the salt. A salt water system will require you to change the water less frequently, as well — typically about once a year.
Salt water hot tubs are generally easier to maintain, due to a chemical reaction that produces a small quantity of the chlorine molecules naturally; that chlorine acts to neutralize contaminants via sodium without creating chloramines that cause irritation. An added benefit is that you don’t need to add chemicals to your hot tub, making it a lower-maintenance option.
Increase Your Health with a Salt Water Hot Tub
Your active lifestyle will be complemented by mineralized heat therapy, which your salt water hot tub promotes. Between the heat and the minerals soaking into the skin, hot mineral springs have proven to be invaluable in improving overall health in these and other areas:
- lessening joint pain and arthritis
- healing of tissue and ligament damage
- reducing muscular fatigue
- helping high blood pressure
- decreasing eczema
- lessening Nasal congestion
- improving Circulation
- aiding digestion
- reducing fibromyalgia pain
Science and technology is constantly helping improve the efficiency of salt water hot tub systems. One new revolutionary system is the ACE® Salt Water System, which delivers active oxygen, which in turn interacts with salt to produce chlorine and leaves behind only two byproducts: water and carbon dioxide.

I’m glad that you mentioned that saltwater tubs would be much easier on your skin. I usually feel pretty itchy from the chemicals after a dip in a regular hot tub, so that sounds nice. If I decide that I want to get a hot tub I’ll have to consider a saltwater one.
