Home and Garden Spas 5-Person 19-Jet Hot Tub Review

Hot Tubs manufactured by Home and Garden Spas are well renowned for their energy efficient construction & design as well as being durable and packed with plenty of features, so I had high hopes this Spa would be something special.

The Home and Garden Spas 5-Person 19-Jet Hot Tub is an affordable five-person hot tub kitted out with Home and Garden Spas flagship features such as high-density foam insulation and user-friendly controls. Here, we’ll drill down into some of the key features to help determine if it’s the choice for you.

Features of the Home and Garden Spas 5-Person 19-Jet Hot Tub

  • 5-person capacity
  • 19 jets delivering hydro-therapeutic relief
  • 110 volts operation
  • Easy to use digital controls
  • 1.5 HP motor
  • Multi-layered fibreglass construction
  • High-density foam insulation
  • Slip-resistant surface

5-person capacity

The 5-person seating capacity makes this ideal to enjoy with the company of family or friends. It’s rare to find a Spa which only runs on 110 volts yet has such as high seating capacity so if easy installation appeals to you, then this is a plus factor.

110 volts operation

This Spa is powered by 110 volts so if you’re unable to have a dedicated electrical circuit fitted on your property then this is good news. On the downside, it will take longer to heat up than 220 volt Spas, but not significantly longer.

19 jets delivering hydro-therapeutic relief

19 jets are strategically located to provide you hydro-therapeutic relief for your neck, shoulder, calf, and feet. The jets can be controlled conveniently via the topside digital controls so you can adjust the temperature and power to your preference.

They are powered by a 1.5 horse power pump, which is designed to use a minimal amount of energy even when it is operating at its full capacity; this is good for keeping the electricity costs down.

One standout feature is the lounger seat with comfort cushion headrest. This is very luxurious and comfortable, the jets located under it, provide a relaxing sensation throughout your body.

Slip-resistant surface

As you want to have fun in your Spa and move about at your leisure, you don’t want to worry about slipping and incurring an injury. This possibility is greatly reduced thanks to the slip-resistant surface.

Final Thoughts

On the downside, the pump is only 1.5 horse power, so it isn’t as powerful as most similar priced spas although it has the advantage of only requiring 110 volts to operate so a dedicated 220 volt electrical system is not required.

Overall, the Home and Garden Spas 5-Person 19-Jet Hot Tub is a great hot tub, which is ideal for a family or a party of friends. It’s comfortable, roomy, energy efficient and has a good jet system to provide therapeutic effects for maximum relaxation.

All About Better Homes and Gardens

Our home is our own private space.Whether you are building a dream home or just want to add a little spice to your existing house, all you need is a little time. If you have a garden, you can experiment with a lot of plants, colors, themes, fountains and more. Before venturing to discover whether you really have that ‘green thumb’, you need to study a little about garden plans, flowers, lawns, trees & shrubs, herbs & vegetables, house plants, landscaping, regional gardening, container gardens, garden guides, paths, pergolas, seeds, pests, fertilizers etc.

Just go through some planting guides and you will have a fairly good idea. I found the Better Homes and Gardens site offering useful Growing Zone Maps of USA spanning Northeast, South, Midwest, Mountain and Plains, Pacific Northwest, southern California to the Desert Southwest with the ideal locations for growing different plants.

Better Homes and Gardens is a popular magazine in the US Published by the Meredith Corporation, the magazine focuses on homes, kitchen, gardening, crafts, healthy living, decorating and entertaining. It began its course in 1922 when Edwin Meredith, the United States Secretary of Agriculture under Woodrow Wilson, founded the magazine. The magazine has kept in touch with the pulse of the changing times, and today it also has a website.

The Better Homes and Gardens website is quite interactive and user friendly. The site offers relevant information on topics related to food and recipes, garden, holidays, health and family and crafts. What I personally do not like about the site is, when you open the home page, there is are special offer pop up windows asking you to sign up. But of course, you can just ignore that, close the window and move on to navigate the site.

The website also has a section devoted to Garden Slide Shows. Here, you can view every garden slide show that the magazine has ever done. Tools and Guides is another a helpful section in the website. Arrange-a-Deck, Garden Flower Gallery, Garden Newsletter, Plan-a-Garden and Plant Finder are some useful features. The site also has a forum with a number of great sections but it does not appear to be too active.

The Expert Advice section of the Better Homes and Gardens is probably the most useful. You will find experts sharing their opinion on flowers, roses, lawns, pests and problems, trees & shrubs, vegetables & fruit and tips & techniques. If you have a doubt about something, just express it here and you will probably get your answer. The website also provides you with the option of joining the club to avail of weekly updates, weekly recipes, newsletters, home improvement ideas and other offers. If you are looking for seasonal e-cards or interesting desktop items or online gifts you may again stop at this site. Some of these offers are fairly priced while others are comparatively a little high.

Targeted at providing useful information, Better Homes and Gardens is fast becoming a preferred magazine in the United States.

Home and Garden Spas 3-Person 31-Jet Hot Tub Review

If you want to experience the joys of owning a hot tub, but you’re limited for space outdoors then a three-person hot tub could be ideal for you. Besides the space factor, it is more intimate to relax in a smaller Spa with your loved one so you may also be drawn to one for this benefit.

The Home and Garden Spas 3-Person 31-Jet Hot Tub is a user-friendly, small hot tub designed to be easy to maintain whilst still providing relaxing and therapeutic effects. Home and Garden Spas have a great reputation for producing high quality products which have been manufactured with energy-efficient methodologies so their range is well worth looking at.

Features of the Home and Garden Spas 3-Person 31-Jet Hot Tub

  • 3 Person capacity, includes Lounger
  • 31 jets
  • User-friendly topside controls
  • 6 horse power 2-stage pump
  • 9-Colored LED lighting

3 Person capacity

This has been designed to accommodate 3 people so it’s a perfect choice for couples or a small family. The dimensions are 80″ W x 60″ L. Due to its small size it is a space saver as well as being economical because less water is required to be heated up to fill it.

31 interchangeable jets

31 stainless steel jets are included which provide a therapeutic experience to help relax your body. The jets are powered by a powerful 6 horse power pump so the jets are both powerful and effective.

There are 3 different types of jets used to direct water at different areas of your body.

  • The Whirlpool Jets provide a high amount of water pressure to be focused on a small area to give you a massage type feeling which produces a beneficial hydrotherapy.
  • The Pressure Point Jets focus on pressure points in your shoulders, neck, calves and feet to help relieve muscle tension and increase circulation.
  • The Therapy Jets create a swirling motion that is ideal for reliving neck tension and strain.

9-Colored LED lighting

The LED lighting is a nice inclusion. This enhances the atmosphere, as well as adding to the safety and letting you choose a lighting scheme to reflect your mood.

Final Thoughts

This isn’t a standalone Spa so you will need to get an electrician to install a dedicated 220v system. Therefore, it isn’t for those looking for a plug n play solution.

Overall, this is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a high quality small hot tub for outdoor use. It’s pricey for a three person capacity, but considering the features packed in and its energy efficiency, it is a solid investment.

Useful Techniques to Create a Beautiful Home and Garden

The home and garden TV shows and online articles are all about techniques and suggestions on how to create beautiful homes and gardens. Most homemakers watch these programs avidly to gather tips that help decorate their homes. Many online writers also give you systematic instructions and clear guidelines on money-saving ideas for better home and gardens. Investing in a designer is expensive and if you have a good eye and flair for design, go ahead and take up the challenge. You can join a group or newsletter online and ask for advice.

Visualize what your home and garden could look like

This is an important and useful home and garden tip. Imagine what it will look like when the trees, shrubs and plants that you have planted reach their ultimate size. When you change the position of doors and windows, make sure the view that meets your eye is pleasant to behold. When converting a bedroom to a bathroom, properly align windows and doors and counter check if the flooring and walls can withstand upheaval and plumbing. Convert an unused porch or study to a solarium. This job requires professional expertise and help. Whatever project you undertake, make sure you provide for all seasons.

Spring cleaning does not have to be in Spring

Rake off that snow mold from your lawns and start getting ready to let your garden grow. Remove all old twigs, branches and lawn waste and check if the soil is dry and crumbly. If it is sodden, one has to wait awhile. Consider a garden trellis this spring as a useful home and garden decoration. Use attractive climbers to intertwine the trellis and give character to your garden. It is time to bring out the garden furniture and give it a fresh coat of paint or polish. Birdbaths need to be cleaned and fresh water used. Bring out those Water fountains and statues kept in cold storage out for airing. Clean out Window boxes and hanging baskets and pack them with soil and mulch in readiness for planting.

Read instructions carefully before choosing your garden plants

Garden supplies are available in many home stores. All plants and seedlings come with tags, which provide useful advice on how to care for plants, whether they are seasonal, or not, how much sunlight and water is required for tending, etc. Buy books, which teach you useful home and garden decorating tips that make it easier for you to plan your garden. Make sure you adorn the pathways and driveways tastefully. Create a little landscaping in one area of your home. You can also have a vegetable patch in your backyard. Keep an eye out for those pesky bugs and wild animals that can destroy your garden. Use pesticides and herbicides regularly
