Things To Consider When Purchasing A Hot Tub For Your Family

14th February 2020

Deciding that you’re going to install a hot tub in your back garden is really exciting and we can guarantee that the whole family will be looking forward to it. But, choosing the right hot tub for you and your family can be really confusing, especially with so many different hot tub brands, models and options to choose from in the UK.

Like any other investment, you want to make sure that you are getting the best possible garden hot tub for your needs before you hand over any money. For this reason, there are a few things you should consider when purchasing a hot tub for your family. To help anyone currently browsing hot tubs, Hydropool Surrey has put together a list of things you should definitely think about.

Shape, size and seats 

Of course, these are probably some of the first things you should think about when choosing a hot tub. You will need to think about how many people will be using the hot tub at once and whether they will want to sit up or lay down. This will help you narrow down your search automatically and eliminate a number of different hot tubs.

Where you’re going to put the hot tub in your garden will also play a big part in the decision. If you only have a certain amount of space then you need to ensure that the hot tubs you’re looking at will actually fit. You should also decide whether you want a sunken hot tub or if you would rather it was raised. Weigh up the pros and cons of both of these for your family and make the decision before you purchase a hot tub, as some may not be suitable for your location of choice.

Additional features

These days, the majority of hot tubs can provide you with numerous additional features that you should also consider before you buy. For example, things such as lighting and audio systems can be a great addition to any hot tub and come in incredibly handy. You should also think about the jets you’d like. The amount of jets alone does not mean it’s a good hot tub. The placement, adjustability and variety of the jets should be considered too when selecting a good hot tub.

As well as these additional features, consider the features that you can have control over when it comes to purchasing a hot tub. You want to ensure that both the interior and exterior design of the hot tub fits in with your garden and enquire into whether these can be changed on hot tubs that you like.

Maintenance and upkeep 

Whilst this may not be an exciting element to consider, it is something that you will thank yourself for in the long run. Some hot tubs require a lot of maintenance and a lot of work goes into their upkeep. You should always find out exactly what is required to keep your hot tub in good usable condition before you make your decision.

You should know who will be using your hot tub and how frequently it is going to be used when thinking about maintenance and upkeep. For example, if you have children that you know will love the hot tub and use it all the time then, a self cleaning hot tub is probably a good idea. Find out about chemical treatments and water balance when looking into a particular hot tub too, they are all things that you’ll need to be aware of once the hot tub is installed.

Choosing the correct garden hot tub 

Taking your time to consider the things mentioned above amongst the excitement of purchasing a hot tub will help you to ensure you purchase the best one for you and your family. Ensure you know exactly what you’re looking for as it will make the whole process much more simple and if you’re really not sure, then an expert will gladly assist you.
