Five Tips For Selecting The Right Hot Tub

Buying a hot tub is not an easy task, when there are so many factors to consider. To make the process of finding the best hot tub easier, here are our tips.

#1: Figure out how much you can spend and what that can get you

The best way to end up with a great hot tub is to first determine how much you can actually afford to spend on one. Next, a quick internet search can give you an idea of what the costs of hot tubs in Calgary are. This will help you keep your wits about you when you’re ready to start shopping, so you don’t get drawn into spending too much.

#2: Know what size you need

Some hot tubs are designed for one person, others work for a few people, and others are more party-sized. Determining now what you will mostly use your hot tub for is smart. If your family could grow in the coming years, keep this in mind too when choosing a size.

#3: Pick the hot tub type that is most ideal.

Hot tubs that are shaped for one person to swim laps in place are not ideal if you’re mostly looking to relax with others. Don’t go with what is cheapest but with what will be most useful.

#4: Before buying, test how comfortable it is

Once you’ve found a hot tub that might work, check whether it can be filled with water at the store so you can try sitting in it as a test. One thing to check is whether the hot tub is big enough--can two people sit across from each other and not have their knees touch? Can you relax your arms? Try out different seats so you know how each spot feels. Test out the power of the jets too and determine if there are enough for your desire. You may like to have jets that can be adjusted, if jets are a key feature for you.

#5: Get informed on what you’ll need to do to keep the hot tub running efficiently

You can control how much you end paying for energy to run the hot tub, if you complete some research on the most eco-friendly options and if you buy a hot tub that is only as large as you need it to be. Don’t trick yourself into thinking the cheapest hot tub now is going to be the best option in the long-run--better quality products can often save you more in energy expenditure.

We hope you have a great experience with buying, setting up, and using your Calgary hot tub with the use of these tips. World of Spas is here for you when you are looking to find that ideal hot tub.

After doing a ton of research we purchased a 16 swim spa from Dynasty Spas and can honestly say it has been one of the best purchases we've ever made! We use it everyday of the year. It's great exercise and keeps the kids out of trouble
