5 Tips for Buying a Hot Tub

So, you’ve decided to invest in a hot tub?

Investing in a backyard spa can benefit your life in many ways. You can experience a variety of improvements in your health and social life with regular use of a hot tub. It can even give you a chance to revamp your backyard. Buying a hot tub isn’t something most do every day, so chances are you might not be sure where to begin. So, here are five tips to help you get started!

Develop a Plan

Most often with an investment in a hot tub, comes a backyard installation. This can prove to be a significant change to both your backyard and lifestyle, so it can be helpful to create a plan. Your hot tub purchasing and backyard investment plan can include a variety of steps, including:

  • Budgeting
  • Hot tub shopping
  • Hot tub research
  • Placement of the hot tub
  • Purchasing products and chemicals
  • Choosing backyard accessories

Once you’ve created a plan that works for you, buying a hot tub can become a much easier and stress-free process. Start by doing some basic research about the benefits of hot tubs and different hot tub brands (cough, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, and Nordic Hot Tubs, cough). You can even take this time to search for local hot tub dealerships in Saskatoon, like Premium Home Leisure.

Stick to the Budget

There are a few costs that buyers may want to keep in mind while shopping for a hot tub. The first, is the price for the hot tub in general. Shopping around and comparing prices between dealerships can be helpful, although you should keep in mind that cheaper is not always better. A hot tub can prove to be a significant and long-lasting investment. Going with the cheaper option may save you a little bit of money upfront, but it could cost you in pricey repairs, maintenance, and only a few years of use.

You should also factor in the following:

  • Monthly operating costs
  • Accessories
  • Chemicals and products
  • Hot tub service and repair

Chances are, hot tub accessories won’t be purchased regularly, and once purchased will result in long-term use. The same goes for hot tub service and repair. A wise investment in a high-quality hot tub, from brands like Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs or Nordic Hot Tubs, can result in a longer-lasting model that requires fewer repairs. Our brands are very energy-efficient, so monthly operating costs are generally low. We also have the best prices on spa chemicals and cleaning products in Saskatoon.

Create a Backyard That Caters to You

It’s important that you invest in both a hot tub and backyard set-up that you will enjoy. While purchasing your hot tub, keep in mind what you would like to do with the rest of your backyard. This can help improve how you and your guests will spend their time while outside of the hot tub, both before and after a soak.

Are you looking to create a relaxing environment? You may want to consider adding colourful gardens and walkways to your landscape. Water features like ponds and fountains can add sounds of nature and trickling water to your outdoor oasis, which can help improve the relaxing atmosphere even further.

If you enjoy entertaining guests, you should aim to create a backyard that’s perfect for a hot tub party! Plan for lots of seating options, a functional patio, and even cooking options. A BBQ or smoker can help keep the party outside, with lots of delicious food too!

Pick the Perfect Hot Tub

Now that you’ve completed some research, it’s time to invest in the perfect hot tub! Our hot tubs come fully-equipped with a variety of features that can complement and improve any backyard experience. Water-based therapies, such as hydrotherapy, can even help to improve your health.
