Looking for a way to improve both your health and your home? We’ve got a great solution…a hot tub!

Having a hot tub installed at your home – be it inside or outside, is a very versatile addition. Hot tubs provide you with both a relaxing oasis to share with your family and friends as well as a soothing retreat for when you need to de-stress and unwind after a hard day. Regular soaks in a hot tub can also help improve your health, both physically and mentally so that you’re able to always feel your very best.

To make your hot tub experience as enjoyable as possible, we thought now would be a good time to tell you about some of the biggest mistakes hot tub owners-to-be make AND how to avoid them!

  1. NOT ACCOUNTING FOR SIZE AND SPACE – Be sure to take measurements of the space you would like to place your spa, as well as of the path you will use to install it. From a patio to a backyard, taking simple measurements ahead of time will make installation easy when the time comes, giving you more time to enjoy your new spa.
  2. UNDERESTIMATING THE VALUE OF AN ENERGY EFFICIENT SPA – Energy efficient spas will save you money in the long run, keeping your energy bill lower even during cold winter months. Be sure to speak to a sales associate and read reviews about energy efficient models. Talk to your power company about the price of power in your area.
  3. NEGLECTING TO MAINTAIN YOUR SPA – Like a car or pool, a hot tub requires regular maintenance to function at its absolute best. Learn everything you can about the simple, quick spa maintenance that you will do yourself, like checkingthe chemical balance. Also, keep up with your dealership for offers, services and support.
  4. AVOID ‘DIY’ INSTALLATION OF THE TUB ITSELF – Unless you’re a trained professional, you probably want to avoid installing your new hot tub yourself. A certified dealer will make sure the plumbing and electric elements of your new spa are installed correctly and functioning optimally, which can save you money in repairs down the road. Additionally, certified dealers are trained to safely lift and move spas.
    At the end of the day, a hot tub can be one of the most rewarding purchases you’ll ever make.
