10 year birthday

Happy birthday to us! We’re celebrating 10 years of YHT

This week, YHT are delighted to celebrate 10 years in business!

Why not grab a cuppa and have a read of our history, developments and achievements over the last decade?

To celebrate, we also have some great special offers available throughout this week.

Our humble beginnings

Back in 2010 whilst volcanic ash suspended flights, Instagram was in its infancy and the iPad had just been released, Yorkshire Hot Tubs was born. We opened the doors of our showroom on 4th March 2010 in the height of the recession. Founded by 5 friends with a love of hot tubs, we scoured the hot tub market to find the right brand to bring to the good people of Yorkshire. After substantial research (and a lot of wet testing!) we decided that there was a gap in the market for a high-end product and decided to bring the luxury Canadian brand Hydropool, the World’s only Self-Cleaning Hot Tubs and Swim Spas to the spa town of Ilkley.

The #1 place to find luxury

In the last 10 years, Yorkshire Hot Tubs have grown from strength to strength. We’ve grafted to carve out a niche market in the area to become the number one choice for those seeking ultimate at-home relaxation.

Award-winning service

Back in 2011 when we won the award for Best New Retailer, to our success winning the Hydropool Marketing Excellence Award in 2019, we have continued to offer honest, practical advice and stand apart from the competition. Since opening, we’ve won 13 prestigious Hydropool awards.

  • Hydropool SILVER Award 2010 & 2011 recognising excellence in Marketing, Sales and Customer Service
  • Hydropool NEW RETAILER OF THE YEAR 2011
  • Hydropool GOLD Award 2012, 2013, 2014 recognising excellence in Marketing, Sales and Customer Service
  • Hydropool Most Improved Dealer 2013
  • Hydropool PLATINUM Award 2019, 2018, 2017, 2016 & 2015 recognising excellence in Marketing, Sales and Customer Service
  • Hydropool MOST IMPROVED SWIM SPA RETAILER Award 2019

Continuing to improve our service

2018 was a big year for Team YHT. We launched a brand-new website in the summer to help enhance enquiries, increase online presence and provide easier access to chemicals and filter sales online. We also opened a secondary showroom, specifically for swim spa sales, to support the growth of the swim spa market throughout the UK. As Yorkshire’s only dedicated swim spa showroom, we offer wet testing as well as practical advice on design, installation and maintenance of this very special product.

Never failing to accept a challenge

Installations in Yorkshire are always a challenge, but we have never failed! Uphill, down dale, city centre penthouse suites, through fields (saying hi to the sheep as we go), over walls, over hedges, over houses… we’ve even travelled as far as Orkney and the French Alps to deliver the luxury of Hydropool to our customers!

Proudly supporting local events

We’re very proud support the Great Yorkshire Show; the greatest show on turf! We have exhibited at this major event for the last 7 years and look forward to attending again this year. We’re also regular exhibitors at the Harrogate Flower Shows in Spring and Autumn.

Luxury available to all

Since opening, we’ve helped countless people realise their dream of owning a hot tub. From holiday cottages to private homes, our Hydropool hot tubs and swim spas continue to provide a luxurious environment for relaxation, therapy and fun to all.

Love Hydropool

Reasons to love your Hydropool Hot Tub

Take a look at YHT’s top 5 reasons to love your Hydropool hot tub or swim spa.

If you’re the proud owner of a Hydropool hot tub or swim spa, you’ll already be enjoying the many benefits of owning such a great product. If not, see why you’re missing out on these main benefits!

Feel like you’re on holiday 365 days a year

It’s impossible not to notice the superior quality and luxury when you step into a Hydropool hot tub. The craftmanship, additional luxury features such as lights and waterfalls, not to mention market leading technology means you’re guaranteed indulgence all year round.

Create your very own oasis from the comfort of your back garden by adding features such as a gazebo, decking, planters and lighting. Treat yourself to some much-needed me time, or even re-create that authentic spa experience at home with hot tub aromatherapy. Why not host a gathering and rekindle relationships by inviting your friends over for a dip?

Reconnect with some family time

Life is busy. A combination of long hours at work, social commitments or maintaining a home means it’s a struggle for some of us to find time for quality family time together. A hot tub gives you a great excuse! You’re guaranteed to entice the whole family into spending time with each other. Even the moodiest of teenagers can’t resist the luxury of bubbles and jets! It’s valuable time away from screens and the TV to connect with each other, talk about your day and build a lasting bond.

Sleep like a baby

There’s nothing quite like a soothing hot bath to allow you to drift off into dreamland. A hot tub provides you with double the benefits of a regular bath thanks to the addition of targeted jets, comfortable pillows and varying seat depths. Why not try aromatherapy products to aid improved sleep? Bathing in warm water also lets your muscles fully relax to ease any pain you may be experiencing. The heat also encourages your brain to release endorphins (the feel-good hormone) helping you relax away those worries from the day.

Soothe niggling aches and pains

In pain from a recent workout? Have an ongoing back problem? If so, a daily soak in your hot tub could be just what you need to ease your discomfort. Hot water helps muscles to relax to ease spasming, with the natural buoyancy experienced through water immersion allowing you to feel weightless and take the pressure off your whole body.

Maintenance is a breeze

In case you don’t already know, Hydropool’s patented Self-Cleaning technology cleanses the water in your hot tub every 15 minutes, assuring you of 100% clean water every time you use your tub. You spend less time on maintenance, and create more time for what matters.

If you’re thinking of buying a hot tub or swim spa, then we’d love to see you. Come on down to our Ilkley showroom and experience the luxury for yourself. We guarantee you’ll fall in love!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
