From fibromyalgia and arthritis to back pain and knee pain, heat therapy from water can bring significant relief to those who suffer. For many that relief comes in the form of a hot bath every night. If your nightly routine includes drawing a bath, you may want to consider investing in a Softub. Not only will you benefit from the soothing jets and the increased hydrotherapy, but you will actually save on water usage.
Yep, you heard right, a Softub will help you cut down on water! Let’s do a little bit of math. Bathtubs typically hold between 40 and 110 gallons of water. For the purposes of our discussion let’s take an average of 75 gallons. So, every time you fill your tub you are using 75 gallons of water. If you are taking 5 baths a week in an effort to ease your aches and pains, you are using about 375 gallons of water a week. Keep figuring your usage over a month and you will come up with over 1,500 gallons of water used just on baths in one month.
Now, let’s talk about the water usage for a Softub. For this math we will use a Softub 300 that holds 300 gallons of water. You will fill this tub once, but will need to drain and refill it approximately every 4 months as part of your cleaning routine. Even those who are mathematically challenged can already see the savings. For those who want to finish doing the math...your water usage for a YEAR would not exceed 1,200 gallons. That amount even accounts for occasionally topping off the water that is lost from evaporation.
You can easily see that your water usage for an entire year of Softub use doesn’t even reach the amount of water used in just one month of filling a bathtub. Just for fun, let’s end this article with a little more math. By investing in a Softub you have the potential to save about 17,000 gallons of water every year! Now that is sure to make you feel good.
We know everyone loves a good math lesson, but why do you need to know this information? For one, it is quite enlightening! For two, it is always nice to help out mother nature in the area of water conservation. The most compelling argument though, just might be that you can enjoy all of the fun and relaxation that a Softub brings, while SAVING money. If that isn’t a great reason to invest in a Softub we don’t know what is. Start saving today by visiting us at one of our events or give us a call at 800-996-TUBS (8827).
