Tips While Shopping for a Hot Tub

There are several factors to consider when buying a hot tub.  Referring to this guide is a great way to ensure you get a hot tub that is best for your needs.  Additionally, check out Consumer Affairs’ list of best hot tubs for some inspiration and further tips. Before shopping for a hot tub, think about the following:

  • Your Budget: Don’t wait until you’re looking at a hot tub to consider whether or not you can afford that model.  Sit down ahead of time, examine your finances, and determine exactly how much you are able to spend on this purchase.  Once you have that number in mind, don’t even look at tubs outside of that price range.  You’ll be glad you stuck to your budget later!  If you are making this purchase with someone else, this step is especially important.  You need to be on the same page about how much money you are willing to spend on your hot tub.
  • Number of People:  How many people live in your household?  How many people do you predict coming over to use your hot tub? Some hot tubs have 4 seats, while others have 8, 10, or more seats.  Going in with a number in mind helps narrow your search while you’re shopping.  How many people your hot tub will need to accommodate is an important factor.
  • Additional Features Desired: Do you want the most innovate jet system in your hot tub?  Underwater lighting?  Built-in speakers?  There are a lot of neat features you can get for your hot tub.  Think about the kind of seats that you’re most likely to enjoy, how deep you’d like it to be, and anything else that would make your hot tub experience just the way you’d like it!  Write a list of your must-have features and a list of your desired features before shopping.  That way, sales staff can help you find the perfect hot tub for you!
  • Placement: Where is this tub gonna go?  Do you want an indoor tub or an outdoor tub?  Do you have room to accommodate any size tub or do you need a smaller one to fit your space?  Ask yourself these questions before shopping.  You may want to measure the area where your tub will go to make sure you understand what dimensions would work in your space.
  • Warranties and Long-Term Maintenance: Some hot tubs are easier to maintain than others, such as filtration systems that require less upkeep.  It’s a good idea to look into the proper care of a hot tub before you purchase it.  That way you know what to expect!  It’s also a good idea to consider whether a warranty is important to you, as only some brands offer them.
