“When you see the veterans receive the spas and in tears, you can’t beat that.” -J. Choi
It’s Veterans Day! We’re taking this blog post in a little different direction than normal and hope the good people that read our informative Waters Choice blog posts will find it to be as inspiring as we did.
We’re always looking for something unique to share with our customers and an article in SpaRetailer magazine seemed to fit perfectly. Furthermore, the mission of this organization sits well with our own at Waters Choice.
Connecting Spa Dealers with U.S. Veterans
Good Cause Spas connects spa dealers with United States Veterans. Believe it or not, when a dealer sells 100 hot tubs, they are automatically qualified to give away a free hot tub through Wish for Our Heros. Of course, there’s an application process, but once that dealer reaches or gets close to its 100 units per store goal, the process begins and they start looking for a veteran that could benefit from a free hot tub.
“…. we believe that the benefits of hydrotherapy are especially true for those who have gone through the rigors of serving in the military,” explains Drew Meng, President, North America Spa. “In addition to helping to bring generations of families together after extended leaves of absence, the benefits of hydrotherapy for stress, recuperation and more can be as close as their backyard with WISH for OUR HEROES”
We couldn’t agree more! The article went on to state that in 2017, the second year of the program, 16 hot tubs were donated. In 2018, 19 hot tubs were donated and 2019’s donations looked even better! Can you just imagine what 2020’s donations would have been? (Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 hot tub donations had to be deferred.)
Connecting With Local Community
Being connected to local community and giving back to people in need is an important aspect to the mission of Waters Choice, just as with these particular spa dealers. We agree that it’s a FANTASTIC opportunity to help veterans who have issues from their service to get back on their feet and live a normal life after they return from service. In addition to that, we'd LOVE to see our enzyme product go along with those spas. Our all natural, pure enzyme water treatment would cost less and help them enjoy simple water care that they won't find with traditional chemicals. Not to mention the fact that they won't have to dump their spa water every month. Hot tubs that use Waters Choice enzyme products only need to replace their water about ONCE A YEAR. Yes, once a YEAR. Here is a link to another blog post where we talk about our wonderful spa care kits.
Hydrotherapy has many benefits for stress relief, recuperation and so much more!
We may be predictable, but it makes sense to use Waters Choice Pure Enzymes in these donated hot tubs. We like to remind everyone that by using our enzymes, spa water care routine will go from confusion to SIMPLE overnight. Seriously! It will.
Pure Enzymes Are Like Vitamins for Your Water
In addition to this, we feel inclined to remind our customers that adding enzymes to their water is like taking vitamins to boost their immune system. With enzymes in the water, a healthy living environment is established allowing you to use LESS chemicals. With enzyme use, one can literally go almost a YEAR; yes ONE YEAR without having to replace their hot tub water. Not to mention the fact that your swim wear won’t discolor, you skin will feel fantastic, and your eyes won’t burn when sitting in your hot tub from high chlorine use.
No More Harsh Chemicals
It’s safe to say that many of the chemicals we use in spas are harsh and cause our skin and hair to dry out, our eyes to burn, and give off strong odors. When we add enzymes, eliminate most chemicals, and cut back on others, these problems go away, and many positive things happen. For example, filters are easier to clean and don’t need to be cleaned as often. This allows you to save water, and your water becomes softer
Furthermore, with 20 years of developing enzymes, Waters Choice formulas have been proven. Having crystal clear water at your fingertips without harsh chemicals is absolutely unbeatable.
Warm Water Therapy
Helping out our United States Veterans is important and helping out a community is valuable. In the mean time, the same program is looking at donating hot tubs to Veterans Administration facilities, giving more veterans the opportunity to have access to warm-water hydrotherapy.
