Jets. At a minimum, test the hot tub jets with your hand, ideally during a wet test. How adjustable are the jets? Do they match up with high tension areas for optimum hydromassage benefits? What’s the pressure variety?
Seats. For many people, the best place to buy a hot tub is with a hot tub dealer because you can take the time to try out a hot tub and see how the seats fit your needs. Get in a hot tub. Since they vary in size and depth considerably, make sure the seats are not too small or too large.
Sound. Another reason to visit a spa dealer is to compare the sound of the hot tub when running. How loud is it? How does the waterfall sound?
When buying a hot tub, consider things like remote monitoring and control. Some hot tub models work in tandem with mobile apps so you can control settings, schedule hot tub maintenance, and find personalized use and care content right from your smart device.
Hot tub accessories. From coordinating steps to make it easier to get in and out of your hot tub to umbrellas to add protection from the elements and a touch of style, there are many functional yet aesthetic hot tub accessories to customize your hot tub experience.
Upgrades. Advanced hot tub water management systems and premium cabinetry materials are just a couple of options that can provide a more luxurious experience.
Buying a hot tub is a significant investment, no matter how much your initial hot tub cost. When it comes to hot tub pricing there are many factors to consider including: maintenance, utility bills, and service. Discuss the following with your hot tub store:
How much do hot tubs cost? Craftsmanship and quality of materials, including the spa exterior, internal functions, and control panel all play a factor here. Look at features, such as water management systems, lighting choices, stereos, and smart technology options.
Hot tub warranty. Don't overlook the importance of a solid warranty with your hot tub purchase. Reputable companies will stand behind their products with a comprehensive warranty that covers the exterior as well as the interior, including the pump, heater, and controls.
Hot tub financing: Financing options, dealer promotions, and rebates are all important when buying a hot tub.
