The purchasing process of any hot tub should be given enough attention as this could determine how much you would be enjoying your hot tub session. To start with, you should not buy a hot tub from an unreliable source or from that which does not have a reputation as good spa manufacturers, even if the price is relatively low. This might just be their bait for unsuspecting customers. Once the short warranty ends, you would be able to tell why.

Before you purchase, it is very important that you know the background of what you are going to buy. There are lots of information sources such as the internet. If you want to know the answers to your questions first hand, you can always call or talk to assistance, as well as with the staff of the shop. You will be surprised to see how accommodating they are.

Eliminating the unwanted hot tubs

What are the features that you want to have with it? What are the other specifications? If you can answer those and other related questions, then you can already purchase. But if you still do not, you have to find the best answers in order for you to get the best hot tub that you are looking for.

You can start with the size. If your purpose for buying a hot tub is you want to experience the leisure time in a hot water bath and enjoy the health benefits of it alone, then small hot tubs would do for you. You don’t have to invest on a very big hot tub when no one but you is going to use that. Cut the cost. However, if you are planning to use the hot tub as a venue for family gatherings such as a bonding place, the larger, the better. If you have a family with you, choose a hot tub that will cater all of you plus more. You can ask the professionals such as the spa manufacturers on how to choose based on the size of hot tubs, with you specifying the possible number of users.

You can also limit the choices by looking at the features in a hot tub. One of the most common feature of a hot tub is the water jet. Ideally, the water jets serve as massager while you are soaking in the water. The speed of the water that comes out of the water jets do the massaging process. With that in sight, you should be able to choose the hot tub which can give good water jets. There are several basis on how to say if a water jet is good or not. If it is adjustable to nearly all directions of the hot tub, then it is a plus point. In addition, if the speed of the water jets can be regulated, this is a very good sign that they are of good quality. Since the speed makes the massage, being able to set it up means being able to get the right amount of massage that you want to have. Also, be sure that the water jets are of good placement.

As technology advances, lots of innovation have been done to the hot tub, such as the control panel evolution. Nowadays, there are lots of available hot tubs which are systematically controlled by built-in programs or software for the mechanisms. There are sensors that can measure and provide you the temperature increase or decrease, as well as the pressure in the water manifested by the speed of water streams. However, this is for easier and more manageable access to the hot tub’s workings, so if you do not fancy much about this, you can still purchase the simpler ones. You can also cut the cost by doing this.

Other specifications such as the building materials should also be given enough attention. The type of material used to build you hot tub somehow dictates the lifespan of the whole hot tub. Prolonged exposure to hot water, chemicals, and other cleaning agents would deteriorate materials over time, so be sure that the materials where your hot tub is built could survive these conditions for a longer period of time. You should check the warranty to be sure, because if the warranty gives you at least 5 years, then you can somehow realize that the building material is good or bad.

There are other indications whether a spa is good or bad. To check for the details about the spa you are planning to buy, consult with the spa manufacturers or with the dealers. But first be sure that the person you are talking with is well-trained and knowledgeable about the products you are discussing. Stay away from the staff who gives you mere unsound conclusions or maybe and might-be attitude, which would later refer you to talk with other personnel. You are actually building your trust with the company, so make a friend who would be able to address your concerns properly. In addition, you can ask for services that they have done in the past, those that can provide good references for you to see their reputation. A satisfied customer can mean a lot to them. Ideally, spa manufacturers which are in business for more than two decades is one sign that they are good ones, if not the best. You can do your research to track their history to see for anomalies. Since we are already in the internet age, visit the website of the spa manufacturers where you plan to buy, for they contain a lot of information not only about them, but also about how they do with their customers. Usually a website contains the products and services that they offer, as well as the customers’ reviews regarding these matters.

Evaluating the hot tub

Once you have eliminated all the unnecessary things that you should not have in your hot tubs, you r choices would now be limited to the best ones upon which you should be more cautious. To start inspecting, you should try it before buying it, if the company permits. Take the so-called test soak to see how it would feel to be inside that hot tub. Assess if you can sit and recline comfortably. Take time to look at the level of the water because if you are in a cool climate, you would need higher soaking level to warm up yourself. For hot tubs that could accommodate more than one, both adult and children should be catered comfortably. There should be no barricade or whatsoever fence around the hot tub for it will only make the entrance more complicated.

Another thing that you should assess is the sound of the running hot tub. If it produces disturbing sound, it would beat one of the primary reasons why you are in a hot tub – peacefulness. Consider this if you are living with others, or if the place of your neighbors are close enough. A silent hot tub is also an indication of a good hot tub quality, because there would be no vibrating pumps or heating equipment within.

Check for the sanitation system. If chlorine would be present, reconsider this hot tub since this would be a health hazard especially to the lungs. You can purchase chlorine converters, but it will just make the price increase more. Just go to the other hot tub choices.

The filter is also one of the important parts of the hot tub, as this prevents the dirt and other unwanted materials from being recycled back into the water system and eventually into the hot tub surface.

Being able to know all of these specifications will surely help you on narrowing down your choices, so that other hot tubs which do not pass your quality will be removed. In addition, you would be able to select the best type of hot tub for you and your family to get the best leisure time and health benefits. A good communication with the spa manufacturers are also good ways on how to ensure that what you are planning to buy is genuine.

Hot tubs can complete your exhausting day by giving you the relaxation you need. In order for you to be able to use it for a considerable amount of time, you would have to protect it by using it very carefully. There are several ways to do that, and one of them is by using a hot tub cover.

During storm, a lot of things could make their way into your hot tub, such as tree leaves and branches, hail, rocks, and other fragments. When these materials fall into your hot tub, they could result in the damage of the covers if the hot tub cover is not that strong. If, say the hot tub cover is strong, then the materials that would fall into it would just accumulate on its surface. If your hot tub cover has holes in it, then this would be a problem since the smaller materials that have accumulated on it could slip through these holes, making their way into the inside of your hot tub.

Materials Used for Hot Tub Covers

One of the best materials that can be used for strong hot tub covers is aluminum, because of its sturdy property in itself. Since aluminum is a metal, then you can be assured that it can survive stronger impacts than hot tub covers that are foam-filled. The only problem with this kind of hot tub is that since aluminum is very strong, it is not that flexible which makes it take up larger space because it is not preferable to be folded.  Another problem involved in using aluminum hot tub covers is that when it is disassembled out of its place during a storm, it could just fly away with the wind and destroy anything on its path.

There are also other materials that can be used for hot tub covers, such as the foam-filled covers which does not allow small materials form getting inside the hot tub because of its non-porous property. Although sometimes, the foam absorbs moist and other liquids which makes it harder to open since the accumulated weight gets higher.

Choosing the best hot tub covers will not only prevent foreign materials from getting inside your hot tub, but it would also be able to extend the life of your hot tub itself since you are already taking care of it as part of its maintenance.
