A hot tub isn’t a one-size-fits-all product. Hot tubs offer many different functions, and different models are tailored to different needs. Are you looking for a place for friends? For you and your spouse? Or is it deep-tissue hydrotherapy you’re after? There’s plenty of models that offer all of these benefits, but when you’re looking to maximize your investment based on the budget you want to spend, it’s best to weigh your expectations and prioritize which benefits are the most important to you.
Choosing the Right Hot Tub
Factor 1: Size & Seating
If you are looking for a place for entertaining large groups, go for size and seating. When you’re looking at hot tubs, remember that price doesn’t necessarily equal number of seats. We have large and small hot tubs across our 700, 500, and 300 series, so a smaller budget doesn’t mean you won’t be able to afford a larger tub. Our hot tubs come in sizes that accommodate anywhere from 2 to 8 people, with the average size accommodating between 5 and 6 adults.
Factor 2: Advanced Jetting
If you are looking for more advanced jetting and hydro-massage, then look at options that have more horsepower and ergonomic molding. If hydrotherapy is your number one priority, don’t just look at the quantity of jets, really research placement, quality, and the ability to customize. Ensuring the jets inside the model you are selecting offer adequate horsepower to balance propulsion and airflow and provide deep tissue results is critical before you make your purchase.
Factor 3: Enhanced Features
When you’re comparing your budget to the models available, we recommend that you make a list of “must-haves” vs. “nice-to-haves”. These lists will help you understand the available options in the price range with your “must” amenities. This will also help you determine whether features like a lounger seat or built-in sound system are really something you will get use of.
