Have you ever considered buying a hot tub? Now is a great time to purchase, because there’s an amazing array of hot tubs on the market. On the other hand, all that variety can make it hard to determine what you need, especially if you’re inexperienced in the world of hot tubs. Don’t worry! We’ve got some tips to help you pick the hot tub that’s right for you.
- First, think about why you want a hot tub. A hot tub can be therapeutic, offering relief for people with arthritis, muscle pain, circulation issues, and sports injuries. The best kind of hot tub for health purposes is a small one with precise controls for temperature and configuration of massage jets. If you’re getting a hot tub just to relax by yourself, you can probably do with a small tub that doesn’t have many add-ons. A fitness buff might buy a specially designed swim spa that allows you to swim against a current, while someone who loves to entertain might need a tub that holds several people. For that kind of hot tub, you might also consider some fun features like programmable lighting and water features. Some hot tubs even have built-in sound systems!
- What size hot tub do you need? This is a major factor in choosing a hot tub. Think about your family size and how you intend to use the tub, as well as the seat configuration. The larger the hot tub, the more seats it has, but sometimes what’s sold as a six-person hot tub will really only fit four adults comfortably. Remember that the larger the tub is, the more it will cost to operate.
- What’s your hot tub budget? There are hot tubs for every price range, and there are many factors that determine the cost. Hot tubs with extra jets, contoured seating, or extras like integrated sound systems will be more expensive than basic models. Set your budget, then decide which features are most important to you. Remember to plan for long-term costs, like power to run the tub and supplies required to maintain it.
- Do you want a permanent or temporary hot tub? If your hot tub is going to be a permanent fixture, consider an in-ground hot tub. These cost more, but they can be customized to be exactly what you want. If you can do with something less permanent and want a tub that’s more budget-friendly, an above-ground hot tub is the way to go.
