Finding The Best Hot Tub For You!

What is the best hot tub for you to buy? Well it comes down to your personal budget and the size and type of hot tub that you want to have.

When it comes down to budget then the sky’s the limit, as it is easily possible to pay over ten thousand pounds for an acrylic hot tub with a built in TV and surround sound system. Yes you did not miss-read that you can now watch your favourite movie or TV programme with full dolby surround sound in the comfort of your own hot tub. Do be aware though that the addition of such features can add a couple of thousand pounds to the price of you hot spa quite easily.

When choosing the best hot tub for your needs the first thing that you need to think about is where you are going to locate it as inevitably it will always look far bigger in your garden than it did in the showroom.

You will need to have a suitable flat and level surface to put it on as it will weigh several tons when full of water. Assume one ton extra in weight for every cubic metre of water – so a pool holding five cubic metres of water will weigh an extra five tons when full! So you need to make sure the surface is very solid and will not shift with this extra weight on it.

Then you need to think about how many people that you want it to hold. Having a 10 seater tub is great if you regularly have friends around, but if not and there are just two of you using it on an infrequent basis then you would be far better off with a 3 or 4 seater hot spa. Just remember the bigger the spa the more it is going to cost to heat and keep warm.

Then your final decision is what type of model do you buy? You could opt for a cheaper portable one, or you could maybe look to buy a cedar wood tub. However most people opt for an acrylic one as these are now mass produced and available from just two thousand pounds. They are very easy to maintain, indeed you can get some that are self cleaning making them ideal for those with busy lifestyles.

These are all of the things you need to consider when buying a hot tub.
