When you’re thinking about purchasing a hot tub in Calgary, you need to keep a few things in mind before you get too far ahead in the process. Here are World of Spa’s tips for choosing the right hot tub for you.

Set a budget that can get you what you most need

There are a lot of extra features that can be added to your hot tub, and it’s easy to get drawn into purchasing something that you don’t really need. So, you should do some research to find out how much your ideal hot tub with the features you need will cost you. Once you know what the basic costs will be, then you can look into additional purchases you could make to enhance your experience, if you’ll have enough room in your budget to do so.

Be clear with yourself on your preferred type of hot tub

Are you looking for a way to relax after work and on weekends? Or do you picture yourself exercising in your hot tub? Hot tubs have different designs according to their purpose, so don’t find yourself buying one that won’t suit your needs–it won’t be worth it in the long run, even if one is cheaper than the other.

Picture how many people might use it

You might have a family of four or a larger group of friends who get together often or maybe both. A bigger hot tub will likely cost more to keep running in the long run, so only get the biggest size that you need.

Know everything that is involved with a hot tub’s upkeep

Not only does a hot tub’s size impact its costs overtime, but its extra features, the size of its pump, and whether it is in-ground or above-ground will also make a difference. If cost is a concern, look into eco-friendly options that will keep electricity costs down. Often it is best to look into these options before you begin the installation process.

Test your options out

It is a good idea to sit in the hot tubs you are considering for purchase, potentially with water in them. You should move around to see how different parts of the bench feel and observe where jets are placed and whether there is enough room for multiple people to feel comfortable rather than squished.

We hope these tips will work for you as you begin the process of finding the perfect hot tub, and invite you to contact World of Spas in Calgary to find out what we have to offer.
