Hot Tub Primer

Sep 14, 2016 03:16PM ● By Erica Shames
There's nothing more relaxing than spending time in your own hot tub after a long day. All sorts of shapes and sizes are available, ranging from smaller, more intimate hot tubs to larger, party-size hot tubs. Deciding what hot tub is best for you does take a little bit of consideration. Consider these spa-buying tips from Clearwater Swimming Pools and Spas. 

What to Consider

Before you actually go and look into the small and large hot tubs, there are a few different aspects you need to keep in mind.

– How much money are you looking to spend

– How much room do you have for the hot tub

– How many people are actually going to use it

Naturally, if you have a set budget it is going to help cut out hot tubs you simply can’t afford. Next, knowing how much room you have is essential as well. You can’t really install a 10-foot x 10-foot hot tub if you only have 8-feet x 8-feet available. Lastly, while you probably envision all of your friends and family members coming over to use the hot tub how likely is this actually going to happen? If you regularly have groups of people over than a larger hot tub might serve you well. You also might want a larger hot tub if you have several kids who are going to want to hop in as well. However, if it is just you or you have a small family and don’t regularly invite people over than maybe the smaller option is going to be better.

Perks of a Small Hot Tub

When considering a small hot tub, these are some of the best perks associated with it:

– Less expensive

– Easier to maintain

– Less water and chemicals

– Fits in more places

– Fewer jets so less noisy

While these are only some of the small hot tub perks over what a large hot tub offers, you again need to keep the price, number of people and amount of space in mind when deciding.

Perks of a Large Hot Tub

When it comes to a large hot tub, these are some of the benefits that come with it:

– Fits more people

– More jets

– Different seating options

The larger hot tub provides some additional features that just are not found on a smaller hot tub. When it comes to selecting the perfect hot tub for you and your family, it all comes down to what works best for you.
