Choosing a Hot Tub – SpaCap

Picking the perfect hot tub for your needs.

There are many considerations that go into buying a hot tub; it’s not an item you can just decide you want and go to the store and pick one out. Research will help you find the hot tub that is right for you. The following are several factors to take into consideration when choosing which hot tub to buy:

• Size. Hot tubs come in a wide variety of sizes, some built for no more than 2 people and others large enough to hold 5 or more. Find a size that suits your hot tubbing purposes, is reasonably priced, and will be easy to manage and maintain.

• Intended use. If you want a hot tub for you and your spouse to spend romantic evenings in, a small, two person hot tub with a few jets will be perfect. For large parties and gatherings, you will need much more powerful jets, a stronger heating system, and a lot more space.

• Material. Some hot tubs can be made of wood, giving them a very rustic and natural feeling, while others are made of vinyl or acrylic. Acrylic is common for its hard and scratch resistant surface. Hot tubs built adjacent to pools are often made of gunite, the same material used for the pool wall.

• Location. Hot tubs can be built in ground or above ground, with above ground models typically being portable. Hot tubs built next to pools are typically built into the ground, with some patio hot tubs also following this style. Homeowners who want the option to eventually sell their hot tub need to buy a portable, above ground model, which can be placed on the porch, patio, or even out in the yard.

• Interior. Some hot tubs have no seating at all, while others have highly customized benches in every contour of the tub. Decide what model is best for you based on price and personal preference.
