We want to help you make an informed buying decision when purchasing a new hot tub. In this article, we’re going to talk about how to buy a hot tub.
The first thing we’ll look at is why you want a hot tub.
Why Buy a Hot Tub
Are you a new hot tub owner? Or, perhaps you’re getting ready to upgrade your current hot tub?
Most people decide to buy a hot tub because they want to relax, treat health issues, relieve sore muscles and joints, stress less and enjoy life more.
Hot tubs provide balance and a way to connect with your family and friends.
Some people opt for a hot tub to treat fatigue, arthritis, injuries, fibromyalgia and sleep issues.
Whatever your reason, it’s important to make sure your hot tub is big enough to meet your needs.
Getting the Right FIT
How many people will use your hot tub? Is it just for you and your spouse, or do you have a large family that enjoys to soak? Perhaps you’d like to entertain and want space for more.
You also want to consider how much space you have for your new spa in your backyard. Make sure you have enough room around the hot tub, and it’s not overly crowded in your yard.
Look at seating inside the hot tub. Will everyone be comfortable? You want to sit in the hot tub before purchasing it to ensure your comfort.
You can even look at having a wet test or test soak to decide if the spa will be comfortable. This is a great way to test drive your new hot tub.
Lastly, take a look at these features as well:
- Seating depth
- Seating variety
- Foot well space
- Lounge fit
- Access to hot tub controls
- Ease of entry and exit
- Cushioned headrests
When you’re ready to buy a hot tub, follow this rule of thumb: 100 gallons per person. This should get you a hot tub big enough to meet all of your needs.
Getting the Right JETS
Are you looking for a powerful hydromassage, or do you want your hot tub for soaking?
If you want the ultimate in hydromassage, you’ll want to consider the jets and their placement.
Look at the jet variety and how they are placed within the seats. Consider their adjustability.
The best hydromassage comes in hot tubs that have jets that address all your muscle groups.
The last thing you want to consider is your budget and how your wish list fits within it.
You also want to think about the accessories you’ll need. You want a cover, a cover lifter and steps. This helps keep your hot tub clean and makes it easier to operate and get into.
The best way to address this is by talking with a reputable dealer who can walk you through your financing and payment options.
