So, you’ve decided to purchase a hot tub.  This is an exciting process but can be a little overwhelming at first. In this article, we hope to give you some helpful pointers on how to choose the perfect hot tub for you and your family.

Phone a Friend:

As with any large purchase, the first step is typically researching where to buy your hot tub. Ask friends and family members where they purchased their hot tub. Are they happy? What would they change about the hot tub they purchased? What do they love about their hot tub?

Why a hot tub?

Most people buy a hot tub for physical well-being, relaxation, socializing, and fitness. Besides a relaxing place to unwind, a quality hot tub provides therapeutic benefits, which support mental clarity and physical improvement. Plus, they’re just plain fun!
It’s important to identify the top reasons you are purchasing a hot tub. Rank them according to importance and rate how each hot tub model addresses those reasons.
Below are some examples of reasons to buy a hot tub to help you create your own list.

  • Chronic conditions
  • Physical therapy
  • Reduce stress
  • Relaxation
  • Aquatic exercise
  • Better sleep
  • Socialization
  • Fun

What size:

The majority of hot tub manufacturers offer two-three person models, five-six person models, or 6-8 person models. For anything more, you would want to consider a swim spa.
Consider the size of your family and the number of guests you expect to enjoy your hot tub on a regular basis. We advise not purchasing one bigger just for that once-a-year family reunion.
Another important factor is the amount of space you have. Before you start shopping, measure the available space. This will narrow down the models for you and help you remain focused on the appropriate size and features.
