If you have the space and budget, there’s no reason not to splurge on a hot tub. Just imagine being able to unwind with the help of warm, bubbling water at the end of a hard day. The idea sure sound enticing. And considering how most of us have stressful and demanding jobs, we can use some pampering and relaxation more often. If you’re reading this, I’m sure you already decided to invest in a spa. But as with any expensive purchase, you want to make sure that you get the perfect deal for your money. With that being said, here are some important factors to consider when choosing the right hot tub for you.

Size

When it comes to choosing the size of the hot tub, consider the location where you plan to install it. Are you looking for an indoor spa for your bathroom? In that case, you may want to look at smaller hot tubs. Besides being able to fit in most spaces, smaller spas built for two people are also more affordable to run and easier to maintain. On the other hand, if you need room for you, your partner and your kids or want to invite friends over to share the waters, you may want to look into larger models such as a four person hot tub. A four person hot tub is usually a great solution as it is small enough to fit in a bathroom or on a balcony, and large enough to accommodate several people. On the other hand, if you have a large enough space in your yard, you can look into 6, 7 or 8 person models or even a swim spa if you want the added benefit of being able to swim.

Durability

Considering how a hot tub is an expensive purchase, you want it to last as long as possible. The material a hot tub is made of is usually what determines its lifespan. With that being said, acrylic and fibreglass models are considered as the most long-lasting options due to being very resistant to damage and fading. On the other hand, while a wooden shell may look like an attractive choice, it’s usually a bad idea as wood can warp when exposed to moisture and humidity.

Ease of Maintenance

The purpose of a hot tub is to let yourself unwind and relax. That being said, having to clean the hot tub very often does not quite fit the idea of relaxing. While hot tubs do need some cleaning from time to time, there are some features that can make them much easier to maintain. One such feature is the special antibacterial and anti-fungal coating called “Microban”. This type of coating is 100% non-porous which makes it hard for dirt and bacteria to stick to, thus resulting in a hot tub that gets dirty less often. Additionally, make sure to pick a good filter that can prevent particles from getting caught in the water pump and clogging it.
