Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Hot Tubs


Hot tubs are one of those luxury items that feel really amazing to own. They're not inexpensive, but they're not unattainable for the average person, so they've become a great way to prove to yourself that you've made it. Hot tubs are perfect for relaxing alone or with your spouse, or they can make social engagements even more fun. Here are a few things you should know about hot tubs before you buy one. 

The main considerations
The very first step is to determine where the tub will be placed. One thing to consider in locating your hot tub is access. How easy is it to get to your spa from your house? How private is the location you've chosen? 
After that, you can look into the properties of the tub itself, such as:

  • Number of seats.
  • Number of jets.
  • The pump.
  • Filtration.
  • Features such as audio, lighting or waterfalls.
  • Access to outlets and water supply.

Researching and buying a hot tub
The next phase is to look at a variety of manufacturers' products to see which will be the best fit for you in terms of how you plan to use the hot tub. You will have to take cost into account as well. You may be tempted to buy the biggest tub you can afford, but is this truly practical? Consider the use, placement and your investment wisely. 
You don't have to buy from the first person you talk to. As with most large purchases, it's best to get multiple quotes before making a decision. 

Planning for installation 
There are a few things you should consider in terms of installation as well. You need to make sure the area has proper drainage and access to electricity. You may need to contact an electrician prior to installation to ensure that you have the proper outdoor outlets to run all of the components of your hot tub. A plumber may be necessary too.

Important hot tub maintenance
When buying a hot tub, you also need to be prepared for maintenance. There is a lot that goes into keeping your hot tub clean and usable. You may want to consider the three most important aspects of hot tub maintenance:

  • Circulation 
  • Cleaning 
  • Chemistry
