The buyer’s guide to purchasing the perfect hot tub
There is something incredibly luxurious about owning a hot tub. It will make you feel like the Paris Hilton of your neighbourhood, and whether you’re buying it to lounge outdoors with a glass of champagne in hand, or to boost your health with the occasional bout of hydrotherapy, you’ll need to make sure that you select the perfect one for you.
To help you do that, we’ve compiled a few top tips to get you started…
#1: Set a budget
Most of us don’t have an inexhaustible supply of funds, so the first thing to do is sit down and calculate how much you can afford to spend. Different makes and models can vary widely in terms of price, so do the sums and see whether you’ll be looking at basic options or something a little more decadent. Even if you have a limited budget, you may still find something suitable if you consider your choices with care.
#2: Think about how big your hot tub will need to be
Hot tubs come in lots of different sizes, so before you splash out on something small but luxurious, determine whether it’s going to be big enough to suit your needs. Do you want to fit the whole family inside, or will the tub be a romantic retreat for just you and your partner? Remember to make room for friends, or else risk the wrath of some very disgruntled guests the next time you host a dinner party!
Hot tubs offer a perfect rest bite from the stress of everyday life, but they can also be an important part of physical rehabilitation or a low-impact exercise regime. You need to choose yours with this in mind. For those who fall into the latter category, we recommend longer, lap-pool shaped models that are wide enough for resistance therapy.
Comfort should be one of your key considerations when it comes to choosing a hot tub, so try out potential models wherever possible. If you can, test each seat, checking how they feel in terms of room, especially if you have someone else in the tub with you. Also pay attention to where the jets are placed, and whether they’re comfortable to lean back against, or feel like they’re poking you at every turn.
