Hot Tub Buying Guide


The Real cost of owning a Hot Tub

As you begin the hunt for the perfect hot tub for you, there are many things to consider. Before you can slip into the soothing hot water to relax after a rough day, the tub needs to be purchase and installed, up and running. Let's get you there as smoothly as we can. As you consider the many options you have when purchasing a hot tub, you must first start with your budget. No sense in researching options that are way beyond your budget.

So let's now consider the cost of the hot tub. The real cost. The cost of a hot tub is more than the purchase price - always. First, of course, count the cost of the purchase of the tub. Even before you can plug it in, you need a place to put it. You will need to factor in the cost of the pad or platform. Will you need to level the ground? Will you need to hire professionals or enlist the help of buddies? And don't neglect a way to get in to your tub. Will you need to purchase steps or have them made? You'll need to either do the work yourself or hire someone for this job. Don't neglect to consider the cost of hiring an electrician to do the electrical work necessary to get your hot tub up and running. And once the hot tub is cranking, you need to keep it clean and functioning, so don't forget chemical cost and maintenance cost. Ah, how quickly those numbers add up. Once you know the real cost, you can set your budget and start the processing of choosing your perfect hot tub. . . .perfect for you.

Can you really afford it? Keep your eyes wide open. If you spend all your budget on the tub itself, but can't set it up properly, what's the point? If you spend it all on tub and set up, but can't afford maintenance and chemicals, it's like owning a beautiful, big boat but being unable to go anywhere because you can't purchase gas. In order to fully enjoy your hot tub and to benefit from all it has to offer your lifestyle, be sure you account for the full cost. You'll feel much better sinking your tired body into an invigorating hot tub knowing full well it's all paid for.

Now that you know your budget line items, it's time to figure out what to look for when deciding on the type of hot tub you will purchase. Are you in the market for a permanent hot tub? This type of tub will be the most efficient, but can often be the most costly. Maybe a portable hot tub is the right one for you. Portable hot tubs are self-contained free-standing units that can be moved if needed. Or maybe you are looking for a soft hot tub that is easily set up and moved. This is one of the first decisions you need to make in your buying process.
