Buying a hot tub is an exciting prospect, but don’t forget to follow these six steps as you begin the purchasing process

From Pool and Hot Tub APSP

Buying a hot tub can be as simple as going to your local pool and spa store, or even your local Lowe’s or Costco, and picking out a tub, having it delivered, and starting to soak.  There are many factors to consider, however, that will not only maximize your enjoyment of the tub, it will make your purchasing decision more efficient and prudent.  This post from the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals gives you six steps to making the process of selecting and purchasing a hot tub more enjoyable.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

1. Ask how your hot tub will give you what you’d most enjoy.

What do you need and why? From an intimate environment to a relaxing oasis, focus on your desires and envision how they can be fulfilled by owning a hot tub. What is the primary use? Relaxation? Relaxation after exercise or sport? Hot water therapy for body and joint relief? Entertainment? Also, how many people will use the hot tub? Consult an APSP member professional to discover what’s available to meet your needs.

2. Ask how you can customize your hot tub selection.

What size and shape would be best? Will you entertain or keep it personal? Your APSP member professional can help you explore the many opportunities for buying, installing, and creating the most enticing setting for your hot tub.

3. Think about equipment.

How many jets will you need or want? Will you want lighting, sound systems, wireless remote control – even aromatherapy? Would you appreciate an automatic cover or cover lift? Automated or alternative sanitizing systems? How about a lounger in the hot tub?

4. Where will your hot tub be placed?

From balcony to basement, deck to patio, there’s a hot tub for almost any setting. What hot tub features will enhance your hot tub environment? Will you create an indoor oasis or an outdoor room? Will you need landscaping or fencing to complete the picture?
