California Hot Tubs - A Way of Life
The California Hot Tub Way of Life
In California, more so than any other US state, owning a hot tub is a way of life. When you think about hot tubs, it's easy to envision a group of folks enjoying the experience on a beautiful California Hot Tub evening up in the hills overlooking San Francisco or Los Angeles. Originally Redwood Hot Tubs were the craze in California but as red wood supply decreased they changed to Cedar which provided better insulation value.
The reason California Hot Tubs seems to go together is, first, because it's true that many Californians own them. But beyond that, it also has to do with attitude. A lot of people have a perception about the people in California (especially around the big cities) that includes a laid-back attitude and enjoying a good party. Well, "laid-back" and "party" certainly describe the hot tub experience!
California is, of course, a big state that extends North-to-South. This means that residents of that state can literally go from heavy snow and frigid temperatures at one end to 100 degrees and desert at the other end - all in the same day. This unique climatic situation makes cedar an ideal wood of choice for any wooden hot tub. Cedar is a great wood for hot dry climates and an ideal wood for wet rain forest regions. Both types of climate exist in California.
In the Northern and mountainous regions of California, where colder weather sets in and snow can be an issue, you may want to consider upgrading to a R21 cover for more insulation as well as for extra support. In the mountain regions it is not unheard of to get 4 feet of snow in 24 hours?
