Are you thinking about purchasing a hot tub? Perhaps it’s been in the back of your mind for years, or maybe you are just recently ready.
If you’re like most hot tub buyers, you will most likely spend hours researching your perfect hot tub. What’s more, you know your new spa is going to to be a lifetime investment.
For savvy shoppers like you, one of your most pressing questions is, “How long will my hot tub last?”
Longevity Depends on the Hot Tub
The answer to your question lies in the quality of the hot tub you purchase. As the old say goes, “you get what you pay for,” the same holds true with investments like hot tubs.
If you buy a cheap hot tub, it’s most likely made with low-quality materials. These won’t last as long as the best hot tub brands that only use high-quality parts.
In addition, hot tubs that aren’t taken care of will also have a shorter life span.
Bottom line – your hot tub’s longevity is in direct correlation to two important factors: spa quality and spa care.
Hot Tubs Last…
Your hot tub can last anywhere from five-20 years.
Cheaper hot tubs made with lower quality materials show up on the low end. If they aren’t maintained, they may even last less than five years.
Quality hot tubs that you take care of with regular maintenance can last for as long as 20 year or more. In fact, we just recently replaced a Hot Spring Spa for a customer with a new one. He’d had the spa for nearly 20 years!
How to Extend the Life of Your Spa
The best ways to extend the life of your hot tub are to buy a quality hot tub and take care care of it.
Many hot tubs have plastic pieces throughout the body of the spa. Because these pieces come in contact with hot tub chemicals, they are often the first to experience wear.
Always take care to clean and wipe down these elements of your hot tub on a regular basis. You should also clean the entire hot tub when you drain and refill it. Simple cleaning sessions help you combat the tide of normal wear and tear.

Your hot tub does need periodic maintenance. You are welcome to do this on your own, or you can contact us, and we can do it for you.

You should follow your hot tub owner’s manual because improper or inadequate care of these components can cause them to break, which could cause other issues with the spa.
