You really should ask a lot of questions before buying your hot tub. For example, is the hot tub something that you want to enjoy for many years to come? You also want to make sure that you are asking the right questions and that the company you may be purchasing your hot tub from is reputable and experienced.
While the internet is a wonderful place to glean information from, it is not the resource you want to use to make your hot tub purchase.
You can go to a dealer's website to gain some basic knowledge as to what they have to offer, but they should also have a showroom available where you can get to see these items first hand. You want to deal with a reliable company, so ask how long they have been business. Try to find out what awards and recognition they have received from within this industry.
Your chosen dealer should be able to give you some options as to the different brands of hot tubs. This way you can do some comparisons.
You want to know about the water care system that the models you are looking at possess. Some are easier to maintain than others. There are actually some self-cleaning hot tubs that make hot tub maintenance a very easy task.
You need to know what chemicals will be required to maintain your spa.
Water filtering is another important feature. Ideally, you want your hot tub to be able to filter the water on a continuous basis.
One of the most exciting parts of the hot tub is the jets. You want to take a close look at how the jets are situated and how many pertain to each seat. Determine how you control the jet flow and what options are available to control the jets.
The insulation of the hot tub is an important consideration. This is what is going to help keep your water at a constant temperature. The better the insulation, the more energy efficient and cost effective it is.
You want your hot tub to look good and fit in with your decor. Check out what the options are for color and style of the cabinet.
Ask what accessories come with the hot tub or at least what you could buy extra to extend your hot tub pleasure. For example, in some spas you can use aroma therapy oils which bring a lot of different and wonderful experiences with them.
