Finding the Best Hot Tub for You!

So much information, so little time. A hot tub is a large purchase, because quality and standard features are so varied, now more  than ever doing some home work, asking the tough questions will get you the hot tub you expect from a dealership that will help you maintain it.

A quality hot tub should provide an ultimate massage with therapeutic jets, should be easy to maintain, have 24 hour circulation and be fully insulated. Price, although very important should not be the only deciding factor when you are purchasing a large dollar item like a hot tub.


Hot tubs which do not need chemicalsEVERY hot tub requires chemicals. The combination of hot water and bacteria introduced from our bodies creates the perfect environment for bacteria growth. Are hot tubs hard to maintain NO – if you use the BioGuard easy to follow system. Take the guess work out of spa maintenance with experts advise and product. Today’s’ spa manufacturers are making great strides in providing system like UV-C that decrease the amount of chemical required.

Icky Spa Water – Just drain it – Ever heard that before? Why would you spend your valuable free time (not to mention the cost) just draining your hot tub every month or so, technology and proper chemical use requires a maximum of 2 drains per year!

All hot tub manufacturers are the same – you can find hot tubs being sold in most major department stores, in parking lots and malls. Is the quality the same? Definitely NOT! Information about reputable hot tub brands are available on line – if the spa you are interested in has little or no information, that may be telling you something.


A reputable dealership will have carried a brand for many years, have service technicians on staff and be very knowledgeable about a hot tubs operation and maintenance. If a sales person cannot answer your questions, there is a reason.
