We’ve only had our barefoot spa since the new year, but we’ve been really happy with it. Our kids love it, and so do our guests on occasion. I even got my mother in there! She’s just turned 81 so it took some convincing. She refused to do it at first mainly because she is one of the most stubborn people I know (still love you mom!).
Anyway, Mom didn’t want to because she said it hurts her skin/dries it out when in fact, it does the opposite! It actually moisturizes the skin all over and does a great job of it. The chlorine is what has the adverse effects on skin, but this spa has an ozonator that supplements ozone gas in to the water to clean it instead of heavy chemical usage.
I tried explaining this to her, and she didn’t believe me. Finally, with the help of my wife, and some red wine, she got in and tried it. Do you think she liked it? Lets just put it this way, SHE COMES OVER TO THE HOUSE A LOT MORE OFTEN NOW 🙂 We are thinking to get her one at least hoping to maybe next year if we can. She needs it for arthritis and I read hot tubs are excellent for treating that. She even says it helps her instantly with her pain in her legs and back! Can’t argue with that!!
Last thing I want to mention, or I should say ask: We are looking in to getting some kind of structure to go around the spa. We live in Southern Illinois, and it gets windy here. We just want something that will block the wind especially in the winter. Does anyone have ideas on what I can get to accomplish this sort of thing in a really windy environment? Thank you in advance!
