Who doesn’t want a Hot tub in their own backyard? Jacuzzi hot tubs are one of the most famous brands of hot tubs, so famous in fact, that the names ‘Jacuzzi’ and ‘hot tub’ are often used synonymously. However, Jacuzzi is just one brand of many hot tubs, which is precisely why it can be challenging to know what to buy. To help you decide, below is a list of fundamental questions you need to answer before buying a hot tub.
Cost – Hot tubs come with lots of add-on options, all of which can increase your initial expenditure considerably. It’s a question of how luxurious you want to go. However, the cost isn’t just about luxuries. There are also delivery, installation, operational, and maintenance costs.
Size – Tub size is another important question and the answer isn’t as black and white as you might think. For example, a small tub’s lower operation costs might be appealing to couples who will be the only ones using the tub, However, if they’re planning to grow the family, a small tub might be the wrong choice for the future.
Location – Will your tub be located in a busy backyard? In a home where it will seldom be used? In an area with plenty of sunshine? Or plenty of shade? All of these factors should influence your purchase decision. And climate should too.
If it’ll be in an area with a harsh climate, you’ll need a tub that can withstand harsh elements. And then of course, you’ll need to ensure you have enough space for your hot tub, including space for equipment and its cover.
