    Exercise Spa Project

    Hey All...

    Wanted to share this here. Finally have a plan to get my wife an exercise spa. Being disabled, she needs a way to just float, move around some, etc. She is beyond excited. The tough thing was find a small spa deeper that 52" and a lift that will clear it. Most lifts, if they go over 56", they also end up near 12 foot tall fully extended. Finally found one that will not go that high when fully extended. So we will actually be converting our garage so to speak into a spa room, mainly for privacy, etc.

    Here is the spa, it has to be at least 46" in water depth with her stuck joints, the water must hit her chest so that she's not putting too much weight on her ankles. Lift is ordered, it will be here in 2 weeks or so, then the spa will be here in 4 weeks or so from now. Will post pics as I do stuff.

    First off, I have a Frigidaire dehumidifier, keeping in mind it's normally dry in Texas, do I need a humidity vent. This will not be steaming like a hot tub, rather kept at about 96 degrees for her joints. Here we go, finally, seems like I have spent days researching this

    I think I would still have a humidity vent, if you are going to keep the garage closed up, and during the winter, there will be times that is a necessity. I might even add an exhaust fan to have to use in the winter.

    One other thing, make sure water is convenient to add, as with the dry weather the last few years, evaporation will have you adding water more often than you might think.

    Looks like a great project! I too will be following the thread.

    A good cover would go a long way at keeping evaporation and humidity down.

    Interesting, I'm following along too.
    Farmgirl is correct with adding water. We seem to use more water in the winter than summer and we use our HT a lot, close to 365 days a year.

    Thanks all. I do want to be over cautious. So why not do a vent. I will research some good for humidity control. I am going to re-paint the garage with more of an exterior paint, re-caulk areas, etc. We will have a good cover. Can also open the garage on a dry day and zap the humidity quickly that way.

    It's finally here....
    Will take some images when it's all setup with the lift. I will say, wow it really stinks of plastics and such. Not good for her, this thing will need to off gas for a bit
