5 Ways to Throw the Best Cook out

An article written by guest contributor, Brian Rees

Many people throw out parties once a month for various reasons to see their friends and relatives. Almost all people arrange at least one party every three months, whether it be a birthday party, feast, anniversary, etc. Many people are unsure how to run a great party in the home without spending too much money. Some have a misconception that parties can only be conducted in hotels or special halls. But, it is always better to conduct small parties in the home. There are few tips on how to arrange a good party and throw the best cookout for your guests.

Decorate the Home for the Cookout

Decorating the home for a party is the initial step. Focus on the theme of the party and try to hang up decorations reflecting it. Children’s birthdays and other celebrations can have rich colors for the decorations, whereas for adults, celebrations can be in lighter color decorations. Evening parties can be decorated with lighting, and daytime parties can focus on natural vegetation like flowers. The party area should be decided in advance before starting the decorations, as it will be the focal point of decorations.

Choose the Best Place for Cookout

Choosing the cookout location should be after careful consideration as it should serve the purpose of easy accessibility to other parts of the property, including the area dedicated for serving. The most obvious location is around the barbecue grill or outdoor kitchen, but other good places could be the decks of swimming pools or courtyardsas all of these can be used effectively with space, and guests can enjoy the evening.

Decide What to be Served

Perhaps most important, as ultimately the food will determine the satisfactory level of your guests. It is not always easy to fill everyone’s specific dietary needs; however, your best effort should always be given. List the total number of guests and try to know their preferences if possible. If you know vegetarians or vegans, try to pick up veggie friendly options to throw on the grill.

Arrange the area for the Cookout

When arranging the cookout area, the total number guests should be considered first. Set up the area with outdoor chairs and tables without making the area seem too crowded. Also, ensure enough supply of plates, bowls, forks, and knives. If required, separate areas can be arranged for children and adults. Also,music is a great way to create a welcoming ambiance for a cookout.The food should be properly arranged in a corner, to ensure free access for the guests.

Some Cooking Tips

When serving meat for a cookout, hamburgers and hot dogs are always safe choices. Both are popular and less expensive than other meats. No matter what you serve, it’s always important to remember to give your meat a good flavor.Also, arrange some side dishes for guests like potato salad, corn, coleslaw, and vegetables. Dessert can be anything from ice cream, cookies, pies, or cakes. Be sure to have plenty to drink! Water bottles, canned soda, and possibly alcohol, are great for the guests.

Hot Tub Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Hot Tub Cleaning Tips & Tricks - Jacuzzi of Las Vegas

Hot Tub Cleaning Tips & Tricks – Jacuzzi of Las Vegas

We all know that it is a necessary task to drain and refill your Jacuzzi Hot Tub. The point in doing this on a regular basis (once about every 4 months for regular users) is to maintain balance within your system. Without regular water changes you can end up with an unintended biology experiment that could potentially take over your hot tub (not quite as bad as I make it sound). Below you’ll find some helpful tips that will keep your hot tub fresh and easy maintain.

Use the Jacuzzi Pre Fresh Hot Tub Fill Garden Hose Filter – The Water Change

When it comes time to drain and refill your personal hot tub we recommend a simple solution that can eliminate the large debris. Initialize the water change process right by using our Jacuzzi Pre-Fresh Hot Tub Fill Garden Hose Filter which will prevent the large debris from finding their way into your Jacuzzi filtration system.

Use a timer when refilling your Jacuzzi. If your system kicks on and there’s no water in the tub you are guaranteed to do major damage to your system.

You can also do perform partial water changes between complete water changes to decontaminate your hot tub.

Purchase a Decent Hot Tub Vacuum

There are many choices in hot tub vacuums and most of them will do the job. Spend a little extra on one that’s nice so you don’t have to keep buying them. Make sure it’s designed for a hot tub and it’s able to reach all those nooks and crannies. This will allow you keep the bottom of your hot tub nice and clean for use.

Most debris are brought into the hot tub from entering and exiting and a nice little quick tip is to keep a small pre-entry tub for your feet on the side of your hot tub that will allow you and your guests to dip your feet in before entering the hot tub. This is a simple solution that will save you loads of time cleaning your Jacuzzi.

Use a Scum Ball or Tennis Ball in the Skimmer

Using a Scum Ball or placing tennis ball into the skimmers or just dropping them directly into the water will do the trick. What either the Scum Ball or tennis ball will do is attract and absorb body oils, hair products, lotions, etc. from entering into the filtration system. You’ll definitely want to change them as necessary depending on overall use and the users.

Maintaining your Hot Tub Cover by Cleaning with Bleach & Water

Your hot tub cover is guaranteed to eventually start producing an unwanted musty or mildew smell after a while. It’s an inevitable fact, but you can prevent it or postpone this effect by regularly cleaning your hot cover with a small solution of 10% bleach parts to 90% water. This will drastically reduce any smells and make sure that nothing grows. We recommend cleaning is this fashion every 90 days to reduce foul odors from your hot tub cover.

Inspect, Change. Or Clean your Filter Cartridges on Regular Basis

Jacuzzi Hot Tub Outside Cabin

You’ll want to remove and inspect your hot tub filter cartridges every 3-6 months. If they’re a year or more old or look damaged you’ll want to change them out for new filters. If not replacing the filters you’ll first you’ll want to hose them down thoroughly with your garden hose. You can purchase filter soak cleansers from us or any pool supply store. Let the filters soak for 2-4 hours and then return to the garden hose to rinse them off again. You’ll want to make sure to clean the internal housing and skimmer before reinstalling. We recommend always having a few back-up filters handy for uninterrupted hot tub use. Minor maintenance on the filtration system can save you time and money in the long run.

Enzyme Product for your Jacuzzi Hot Tub

We recommend finding an Enzyme product for your hot tub and using it on a regular basis to maintain the environment. What the Enzymes will do is break down fatty lipids, encourage overall cleanliness, as well as work in unison with the regular maintenance chemicals. The Enzymes will also help reduce the skum lining that will develop around the top over time without regular maintenance. It’s well worth the investment and will save you from having to scrub your tub after a prolonged period of time.

Do Not Use Household Cleaning Chemicals in your Hot Tub

Please do everything you can to avoid using household cleaning chemicals on you Jacuzzi Hot Tub. It is of the utmost importance that you use approved for use products on your hot tub. Using chemicals that aren’t designed specifically for use can damage the hot tub or worse.

Galaxy Outdoor of Las Vegas introduces Hydropool Swim Spas! We now are the official retailer of these amazing swim spas. Call us after you read the information below for even more information about this innovative pool system. (702) 448-5600

A Brief History and Information About Hydropool Swim Spas

Hydropool Swim Spas - Custom Deck Integrated swim spa

Hydropool Swim Spas – Custom Deck Integrated swim spa

Hydropool Hot Tubs originated in 1970 as a commercial swimming pool company and in 1978 became one of the first hot tub retailers in North America. Initially, Hydropool purchased hot tub shells from a local manufacturer, plumbed and assembled them in house. By 1980, Hydropool began manufacturing their own hot tubs in Toronto, Canada which are hand crafted by experienced designers and the rest is history.

Hydropool was founded by Dale Papke, and as demand for Hydropool and its reputation for quality grew in leaps and bounds, David Jackson was brought aboard in 1995 as an operating partner. In 2006, David Jackson assumed the role of President and is easily accessible to Hydropool customers.

In 1997, Hydropool acquired the assets of an Indiana-based Swim Spa manufacturer. The “Perfect Swim ” Aquatrainer Swim Spa allow the swimming enthusiast to swim against a strong current while never having to turn around as in a traditional residential / commercial swimming pools, the Aquaplay model uses only one pump to drive the massage seats and utilizes an “Aquacord” swim-in-place harness for swimming or exercise resistance. Both are ideal for swimming, jogging, exercise or play and provide a large pool experience in a small, easy to maintain, safe pool space.

Our products are now sold through a 250-plus retailer network in over 40 countries around the world. Our success continues to come from delivering a top-quality product that continues to exceed consumer expectations. Each of our retailers are professionally trained to assist you in the proper selection of the ideal hot tub, swim spa and accessories to match your needs based on your budget and stated lifestyle.

The Hydropool Swim Spa Goal

We want to be the pre-eminent manufacturer of hot tubs and swim spas on the planet. Such a tall order means we expect the very best from our people. In turn, they can expect to be rewarded accordingly. Whether it’s our products, marketing and advertising programs, sales training or field service training and support, our team must give our customers not just great service, but the best experience in the hot tub industry.

The Hydropool Swim Spa Promise

We offer a fun-filled and challenging work environment where unique and innovative approaches are applied to everything we do. We listen carefully to our customer and team members and use this feedback to guide our company’s decisions and direction. We continually train and educate our team to broaden their skills and enable them to be the best they can be.
