Call it a hot tub, or call it a spa, they’re a great way to relax and entertain, but they can be intimidating if you’re new to owning one. It’s important to have all the information you need before making any decisions. We’ve put together this blog based on three top frequently asked questions from local hot tub shoppers.
  1. What maintenance is required for my hot tub?

Hot tub maintenance depends on your usage and how well you take care of it. Generally, the more often you use it, the more often it needs to be taken care of. At least once a month, filter cartridges should be cleaned or replaced and water should be tested for pH balance. This helps ensure that your hot tub is clean and safe for use. You may also want to invest in a cover lifter which makes changing the filter easier and helps keep debris out of the hot tub when not in use.

  1. Which type of hot tub should I get?

The type of hot tub you choose will depend on what kind of features you value most. If you’re looking for something that offers plenty of customizable options, then go with an acrylic model. Acrylic hot tubs come with plenty of accessories including lighting packages and integrated music systems that make them perfect for entertaining guests! Alternatively, if budget is a major concern, then look into getting a portable spa – these are typically much cheaper than their built-in counterparts but still offer many of the same features. Finally, if you’re looking for something that requires minimal maintenance then try out a swim spa – these spas combine both swimming and relaxation into one unit!
