1. Determine Your Hot Tub and Spa Needs

Identify your primary reasons for buying a hot tub. Do you want relaxation from life’s stresses, hydrotherapy to relieve arthritis, muscle pain, or sports injuries, or socializing?

2. Size and Space for your Hot Tub and Spa

Measure the available space and consider the number of people using it. Choose a space that provides the size you want, the stable surface you need, privacy, ease of access, safety, and proper drainage.

3. Construction and Durability

Look for hot tubs made from high-quality materials like acrylic or rotomolded plastic. Check the shell, cabinet, and plumbing for durability.

Consider the number, type, and placement of jets. Look for adjustable jets that target specific areas of your body.

5. Energy Efficiency

Choose an energy-efficient model with insulation, sealed covers, and efficient pumps and heaters to save on utility bills.

6. Maintenance and Water Care

Check for built-in filtration systems and easy-to-use water treatment options. Consider  FROG @ease combines our sanitizing minerals with SmartChlor® Technology to kill bacteria two ways. The result is Fresh Mineral Water® that’s silky soft with far less odors and the easiest water to maintain because it’s self-regulating. This technology is so unique it has its own testing method that’s easier than standard test strips

7. Budget

Set a realistic budget considering upfront cost, installation expenses, maintenance, and potential upgrades and accessories.

8. Warranty and Customer Support

Check the manufacturer’s warranty and reputation for customer support. A good warranty ensures assistance if issues arise.

9. Try a Hot Tub Test Soaking

Try out different hot tub models to gauge comfort, seating options, and jet strength. Visit our showroom  to ask questions and get a closer look at the finishes and fixtures
