Having a concrete pad under a hot tub is important for several reasons:

1. Level surface: A concrete pad provides a stable and level surface for the hot tub to sit on. This helps ensure that the hot tub is properly supported and reduces the risk of it tipping over or becoming unbalanced.

2. Weight distribution: Hot tubs are heavy, especially when filled with water and occupants. A concrete pad helps distribute the weight of the hot tub evenly, preventing it from sinking into the ground or causing damage to the surrounding area.

3. Protection: A concrete pad creates a barrier between the hot tub and the ground, protecting the bottom of the hot tub from debris, moisture, and uneven surfaces that could cause damage over time.

4. Durability: Concrete is a durable material that can withstand the weight and pressure of a hot tub, as well as exposure to water and weather conditions. A concrete pad will provide a long-lasting foundation for your hot tub. Overall, having a concrete pad under your hot tub is essential for ensuring its stability, longevity, and safety.

Durability: Concrete is a strong and durable material that can support the weight of the hot tub and withstand the constant exposure to water and heat.

 Stability: A concrete base provides a stable and level foundation for the hot tub, reducing the risk of it shifting or sinking over time.

Protection: Concrete can help protect the ground beneath the hot tub from damage caused by moisture and heat, preventing potential issues like erosion or sinking.

4Insulation: Concrete can provide some insulation from the ground, helping to maintain the water temperature in the hot tub more efficiently.

Maintenance: A concrete base is typically easier to clean and maintain compared to other materials, reducing the risk of mold or mildew buildup. Overall, having a concrete base under a hot tub can enhance its longevity, stability, and overall performance.

As the weather begins to warm up and the beautiful summer months are upon us, there is no better time to get outside and exercise. The month of May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, which focuses on promoting physical fitness. Physical activity is essential to a healthy and well-balanced lifestyle, and therefore as employees begin retuning to the workplace after an extended period of time working from home, it is extremely important to emphasize that getting physical activity in during the workday should remain a top priority.

Although it can be argued that exercising at work takes time away from productive working hours, the number of benefits that come from physical activity clearly outweighs the lost time. Exercising at work has proven to lead to higher employee moral, improved levels of concentration, enhanced levels of creativity and learning, increased productivity, and lower stress levels.

The “sit less, move more” movement is a growing trend in the workplace and many employers have began to provide opportunities for physical activities at the workplace to their employees to promote this lifestyle with trending branded merchandise that can encourage movement and wellness.

Whether it be in a group or individually here are some ways to help promote physical activity in your workplace:

  • Team events such as volleyball, frisbee or soccer matches are not only great ways to encourage physical activity, they can also support team bonding.

  • Walking is one of the most effective and easiest ways to exercise. Providing pedometers and fitness trackers to employees is a good way to encourage employees to get up and walk around throughout the workday.

  • Having a designated space for physical activity equipped with exercise equipment allows for employees to arrange physical activity into their own schedules at their own pace.

  • The benefits of physical activity are never attained if you are dehydrated. No matter the levels of physical activity encouraging hydration is a way to ensure all employees are producing their best work.

  • Busy employees may not want to take the time to stand-up and exercise, simple stretches from a desk can be just as effective. A simple page printed out and laminated for all employees to keep at their desks is a useful tool that shows you care about their well-being. Stress balls are a great option to both relieve stress and prevent pain in the hands, and massage balls do wonders to work out back kinks from bending over a computer all day.

  • Lastly, headphones and speakers in the office space can encourage employees to get up and stretch, workout or meditate.

Employees have suffered a lot during the pandemic and there has definitely been an increased (and necessary) focus on their wellbeing. Employees must go a step beyond what was the norm 2-3 years ago, and show that they care about their employee in and out of the office.
