Tip & How-To about Pool & Spa

How Can You Tell if a Spa is Good?


The image of a relaxing spa break brings up images of people in crisp white toweling gowns and luxurious massages but the reality is that spas have now popped up all over the world and reflect a huge range of quality and value.
Here are some tips of what to look for in a good spa.

Cleanliness:
This is my number 1. There's nothing more off putting than getting undressed for a massage and feeling that the room you're in is not spotlessly clean.
Atmosphere:
You want to get a good feeling when you walk into a spa. There should be a pleasant smell that reflects cleanliness but also relaxation. If you get a tense vibe when you're in the spa, chances are that you're in the wrong one for you.
Therapists:
If you've booked a massage for a certain time, then you should expect it to begin on time. Therapists should make you feel comfortable and relaxed but not be over familiar. The whole point of a spa is switching off. If you have to hear about your therapists marital problems, or even just feel like you need to keep chatting, you'll lose out on precious relaxation.
Recommendations:
Use personal recommendations to pick a spa or look up reviews on the internet. But remember that everyone looks for something different in a spa. for some people value for money in a clean place is more important than fancy bathrooms with great tiling.
Honesty:
If something's bugging you before your treatment begins, make sure you're honest enough to say it or it will bother you throughout the treatment and ruin it for you. So if the room is too hot or cold or the therapist is pressing too hard - say something.

Most importantly - enjoy yourself!

Canon 40D playback on viewfinder flashes all white to black. On a wedding gown it is horrible on playback to review.


You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of the image that have been overexposed so much that all details have been lost and gone pure white. Usually this is a bad thing, and the camera is warning you of it. The proper fix is to reduce the exposure to bring back some of the details. If you simply want the camera to stop the flashing, see page 117 of this manual.
