Owning a hot tub could mean spending more time outside on your deck while enjoying a therapeutic session or increased interest in spending time with your family and friends while seated in the water feature's confines. Before investing in a hot tub, consider the size of the water feature that you need, the components that will aid in a relaxing experience, and proposed costs to upkeep the tub.
Large And More Powerful Vs Compact And Less Powerful
A hot tub that features many seats and that holds several hundred gallons of water may sound like the ideal soaking experience, but the large volume of water that is needed will increase energy costs considerably over a compact hot tub, that won't require as much water and that contains a smaller pump unit. These details are important and will help you determine how much time and money will be spent, once you acquire ownership.
The design of a hot tub is another important aspect, since a large tub with many seats may seem ideal. A smaller tub may still supply you with the number of seats that you prefer, but the smaller dimensions would mean that the seats are spaced closer together, which could interfere with being able to stretch out when several people are seated in the tub at the same time.
If you and a small number of people will be using the water feature at any one time and you want to spend the least amount possible, you will be better off purchasing a compact model that has limited seats that contain plenty of space between them. Read all of the specifications that are posted on the side of a hot tub that is being promoted in a showroom and use visual cues to aid in choosing a tub that meets your personal and financial preferences.
Built-In Features And Accessories
Some water features contain adjustable lighting, which can be used to improve visibility or promote the type of ambiance that you associate with intimate, relaxing occasions. There are also models that contain-built in cushioned headrests and trays, which will mimic the feeling of laying back in a recliner and supply you with a convenient way to enjoy a cold beverage or a snack, while seated in the tub.
The positioning of the jets and the number of the jets should be taken into account, since these will supply the pulsating water that aids in relaxing muscles. Tubs that contain a large amount of jets usually require the use of a larger pump unit than a tub with fewer jets.
