Suffering from fibromyalgia? Try your hot tub for relief.

People who suffer from fibromyalgia are often looking for ways to find relief from the symptoms, especially the pain, fatigue and mood issues. Since different people find relief in different ways, many physicians and fibromyalgia experts recommend keeping a diary of your symptoms and what relieves them. That way, over time you develop what’s almost a handbook of the best ways to manage your disease.

Since fibromyalgia is a chronic condition with invisible symptoms, lifestyle modifications have been shown to be among the most effective at helping you feel better. Some of those reported to show the most success include:

Lifestyle changes

As you keep your diary, pay attention to possible lifestyle habits that may be making your symptoms flare, like certain foods, overexertion, too little sleep, etc. Try to remove these things from your life, or make adjustments so you can avoid them.

Getting the right amount of sleep

Keeping a regular sleep schedule and getting the recommended eight hours every night can really make a difference. If you have trouble sleeping, soaking in your hot tub for 20 minutes a couple of hours before bed can really help.


Moderate exercise can be great for preventing and relieving fibromyalgia symptoms.


One of the best things you can do is soak in hot water, like in a hot tub. The soothing warm water and massaging jets can ease pain and stiffness. A calming soak can help boost your mood, too. In fact, a number of our customers who suffer from fibromyalgia tell us regularly using their hot tub is the single best thing they do to help ease and control their symptoms.

If you or someone you care about is coping with this disease, come see us. We can help you select a hot tub that will fit your home and budget, and will bring you years of comfort, relaxation and relief.

The latest on replacement pool liners

When you think about it, swimming pool liners are pretty amazing. Custom-made to fit your pool, they’re strong, smooth, long-lasting and ultimately make owning a pool pretty darn easy and affordable. But standard liners also have their issues. Basic ones aren’t too thick. They have seams. And as your liner ages, these seams become more visible, and can often become the weak point should any issues develop over time.

But new developments in liner technology have eliminated this problem. Latham Ultra-Seam Liners feature virtually invisible seams for a line-free appearance, plus they’re stronger than typical welded seams, eliminating the usual worries about seam degradation over time.

These liners are made from virgin vinyl, and treated with fungicide to keep them free of bacteria. (After all, who wants a nasty pool liner – or a nasty pool?) Plus, UV inhibitors mean your liner is highly resistant to fading. Ultra-Seam liners are available in 30- and 40-gauge vinyl so they’re strong, and come in solid colors and more than 30 eye-catching designs.

If your pool needs a new liner, consider a Latham Ultra-Seam. It’s the biggest innovation in pool liners since designer patterns were first introduced in the 1990s. Wondering what it takes to replace a pool liner? Just watch. And when you’re ready to learn more, come see us.

Cook up some summer fun during our Dough for Doughboy event

Baseball and apple pie. Backyard cookouts. Fireworks on the Fourth of July. Neighborhood games of tag under the glow from the streetlamps.

Some things just say “summer.”

But there’s one thing that quintessentially expresses the season. One thing that, when you see it,  when you hear it – you just KNOW summertime fun is about to be had.

A backyard pool!

And now, thanks to the Dough from Doughboy event, getting that backyard pool is easier than ever! With a $100 deposit, you can save $500 on a complete Doughboy above ground pool package. That’s the pool, liner, pump AND filter – everything you need to enjoy months of belly flops, Marco Polo, splashing-and-relaxing summer fun.

Plus, with a Doughboy you know you’ll be enjoying that pool every summer for years and years to come. Just read what Doughboy owners have to say! Some people still have the same American-made pool they bought in the 70’s! (How crazy is that!?!)

Are you ready to take your summer fun to the next level? Call or come by today to take advantage of the Dough for Doughboy offer!

Close your eyes for a moment and just imagine it. When you look back 20 years from now, what will be your favorite memory …

Your son’s 13th birthday party. Sure, they could have played video games, but instead, everyone spent the entire afternoon in and out of the pool. The boys had the time of their lives while you grilled up more hot dogs and burgers than you ever thought possible. Your son still talks about that day sometimes.

That big Labor Day party, when all your friends came over and Dave fell in. (He was alright). You made that delicious pulled pork, and everyone brought a dish. Remember Nancy’s “Hawaiian Delight” dessert? Even she isn’t quite sure what was in it.

How about your daughter’s sleepover right before the girls all headed off to different colleges? They spent all day in the sun, and all night in their sleeping bags in the backyard. The weather was perfect.

Don’t let another summer go by before you start making memories of your own. Come by the showroom and get Dough for your new Doughboy today!
