Is a home spa in your future home improvement plans? There’s no question that hydrotherapy in a hot tub can ease sore muscles and joints, and help you relax and release stress. You may find yourself in your new at-home spa daily!
Before you make the investment, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for in a hot tub so you can buy the one that will fit your lifestyle best. Consider these options and features when shopping for your future spa:
Location: Indoor or Outdoor?
If your hot tub is going to be outside, you need to make sure it is sturdy and insulated well enough to withstand the weather conditions in your climate. Most people choose to install their hot tub outdoors because having an indoor spa requires a large space and additional measures to protect the walls and flooring from mold and mildew.
However, if your at-home spa will be small and mainly used for therapeutic purposes, you may choose to install your spa indoors. It depends on how you plan to use the spa and the space you have available.
Type of Use
How you plan to use your spa will affect your purchase. Will it be used for physical therapy purposes, or are you planning to entertain guests in your hot tub? If you only need a spa for therapeutic purposes a small one will suffice. If entertaining is your goal, you will need a spa with a large capacity.
If energy conservation is important to you, there are spas available that use less energy and still perform as well as expected from any spa. Maintaining an appropriate temperature in your hot tub will add to your monthly expenses. An energy efficient option will save you money.
Would you prefer a control panel on your hot tub, or even wifi-enabled features that you control from an app on your smartphone? There are even convenient floating and waterproof remotes. You can control the jets, water temperature, pumps, and lights all from an app or a remote.
The number of jets in your hot tub and their placement are important to consider. Do you need hydrotherapy in a specific location? Jets are commonly placed in areas to massage your feet, lower, mid and upper back, neck, and legs. Many spas only have ten or fewer jets, but you can find spas with dozens of different types of jets.
All hot tubs have filtration, but some have an additional level of filtration that offers greater resistance to bacteria. You may want to consider this feature if you plan on having guests in your hot tub.
Some hot tubs are equipped with cleaning systems that help regulate the level of your water sanitation and pH balance. This will make your job of maintaining the hot tub easier.
