What to Know when Buying a Hot Tub

It is nearly impossible to make the right choice without even knowing what you’re looking for. And this means, in short, to know at least how a hot tub works.

Knowing its features is essential when it comes to choosing a hot tub, features such as:


The little holes from where bubbles and heat come from, jets, come in a variety of types, power, and adjustments. Make sure the spa you pick comes with adjustable jets and at least 8 of them.


The insulation should be good enough to make the hot tub look good, maintain heat during use and while standby, and have excellent soundproofing eventually.  Full-foam insulation is usually the best one in these terms.

Energy Efficiency

Having too much horsepower may be counterproductive, the same happens when the device doesn’t transfer heat efficiently. Make sure the one you choose has an excellent heat transfer so heat is used effectively, and that it has enough horsepower that doesn’t get wasted.


There are cheap vinyl and inflatable tubs, which are not as durable as stainless/enameled steel spas, for example. If you want reliability and a long-lasting product, choose something that supports heavy use such as thermal plastic, wood, acrylic, iron, copper, or stone.


There’s nothing more convenient than choosing a product that doesn’t need much maintenance. Some tubs only demand users to change a filter cartridge every six months and that’s it. Others, however, may require chemicals, constant cleaning, monthly filter replacement, and more – which could be annoying in the long-term.


Stone and wooden hot tubs are often much better looking than others. They can be fixed in almost any place and will easily deliver an elegant and stylish finish to it. But of course, the better the product looks, the more it costs.


From the cover to steps or even a lounge, there are several accessories most tubs come with that may increase the convenience and comfort of the product. Lights and atmospheric features are worth it.  Consider these for a more versatile and satisfying choice.
