A simple guide to buying a hot tub
The type of hot tub you buy will be guided by a number of factors, but one of the most important of these is the available space you have. When choosing a location for your hot tub, be sure to take proximity to your electrical supply and the area’s privacy into account. You’ll also need to determine whether your potential location will need any preparation work before installation – hot tubs and spas full with water and several users weigh a significant amount, so you’ll need a structurally sound surface to place your new purchase on.
When you’ve finalised your location, take a good look at the area and be realistic about the size of hot tub you can fit there. A good way to get a feel for how much space you’re likely to need is to draw up a shortlist of potential models and then use rope to mark out each one’s dimensions in your chosen space. Just because your favourite model will squeeze into the space doesn’t mean it’s the right one for you, though – also consider access space for those who are going to use it.
The number of water jets included
will differ from model to model, so that’s another thing to take into
account. As a general rule, the higher the number of jets that a hot tub
has, the greater massaging power it will offer – however, the quality of
the jets plays a big part here, so be sure to do your research. Where
possible, look to buy a hot tub with adjustable jets so that you can
ensure that they are pointing at the major muscle groups for maximum
