Do you look longingly at your backyard and wish you could still be in the water, but you can’t because your swimming pool contractor from Seahorse Pools & Spas in Fort Worth, Texas has closed it for the reason? Why not invest in a hot tub (and in spending time in the water year-round?) We have tips for buying a hot tub this season. 

Buying a hot tub isn’t as simple as going to a hot tub or pool contractor’s site and simply saying, “I want that one.” Buying a hot tub takes as much time and thought as it did when you invested in the family swimming pool. A hot tub isn’t an inexpensive purchase and you need to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth and getting a model that will suit you for years to come.

Tips for buying a hot tub this season

  • Know your reasons for wanting a hot tub. Is it to spend time with friends and family in a unique way in the off pool season? Do you want to have a hot tub to address pain or mobility issues? Is a hot tub in your future because you want to kick back and relax during the long, dull winter months? Knowing why you want a hot tub is the first step in knowing the size you want, the type of jets, the type of seating and more.
  • Do you have space available for it? Will your hot tub contractor need to pour a slab upon which it will sit? Were you planning to put it in the house? Do you have a deck that is strong enough to support it? Placement of the hot tub could add costs to the project if you have to run additional electrical or plumbing and pour a slab.
  • The fun part of buying a hot tub is donning your bathing suit and getting into a hot tub in the showroom! You will definitely want to feel how the jets feel on your skin and muscles when you’re in it. The placement of the jets and the style as well as the seating needs to be personalized.
  • Know your budget before you step foot in the showroom. Let us know what you have to spend — total — then we can help you plan for the purchase of the hot tub and its installation as well as accessories for it.
