Recreation & Sports Blog

From stress relief and pain relief to improving your health and providing you a place to escape the everyday stresses of life, there are several reasons why you are considering purchasing your first hot tub. Now that you have started shopping around for the hot tub, chances are you are overwhelmed by all the options available. Before you commit to this major purchase, here are a few questions you need to ask yourself and the dealer before purchasing a hot tub.

Where Is the Ideal Location for a Hot Tub on Your Property?

First and foremost, determine the ideal location for your hot tub. For example, if you live in a colder climate and plan on using your hot tub during the winter months, make sure the hot tub is shielded from the elements. A good spot is under a pergola or overhang near your back door. If you are installing your hot tub indoors, choose a location that has a floor structurally sound enough to handle the weight of the hot tub and the proper ventilation.

Placing a hot tub in a room without proper ventilation will lead to problems with condensation, which in turn could lead to issues with mold. Measure the area where you want to install the hot tub, as this will determine how large a model you can purchase.

What Is the Reason You Are Purchasing a Hot Tub?

Next, consider the reasons why you are purchasing your hot tub. Having a reason in mind will help you narrow down your options and ensure you get the proper hot tub for your needs. For example, if you are purchasing a hot tub for your personal use and for medical reasons, such as easing your sore back, consider a model that is small to medium in size and features several adjustable jets. If you are planning on entertaining in your hot tub, choose a larger model with plenty of seating for family and friends.

What Is Included with the Hot Tub?

When you are purchasing your hot tub, don't forget to ask what is included. Some hot tubs come with covers, a small deck, and in the case of new models, a very good warranty. Don't forget to ask the salesman the specifics of the warranty, including the length of the warranty and what is covered.

Before you purchase a hot tub, ask these and other important questions to ensure you purchase the model that is right for you.
