FAQs

Most spas must be connected to 240V electrical service, but some offer the option of operating on either 120V or 240V. While connecting to 120V can be less involved, most customers prefer the benefits of the 240V spa, which include quicker heating time and better temperature maintenance during cold weather use. This is because the heater output is four times as great in a 240V spa versus a 120V spa. If you choose to connect your spa to 120V service, you must be certain that it is a dedicated circuit, not shared by any other appliance, and has amperage rating appropriate for the spa you select.

Hydrotherapy is the combined effect of heat, massage, and buoyancy. Warm water dilates blood vessels, increasing blood flow to sore or damaged tissues, allowing oxygen and nutrients to help overworked muscles recover faster. Massage, provided by the spa’s jet system, relaxes tense muscles and relieves pressure on surrounding nerves. Massage also improves circulation and accelerates the body’s natural healing process. Buoyancy reduces your body’s weight by 90%. This relieves pressure on strained joints and muscles. Hydrotherapy is widely recognized as an effective method of alleviating the tension commonly associated with stress.

Thanks to advanced water management and filtration systems, spa maintenance is easier than ever—routine tasks take just a few minutes a week. When we surveyed current owners about basic spa maintenance, nearly all of them said it was easy. Here’s a quick summary of how to maintain a spa:

Water: Check the chemical levels weekly with test strips and adjust them by adding the appropriate products per your owner’s manual—no chemistry expertise necessary. Drain and refills are only needed every 3-4 months, based on use.

Filter: Rinse and clean filters with a garden hose or filter flosser once per month. Replace as needed.

Cover: Use a cover to help keep your water warm and clean. It will protect your spa from debris and weather elements.

Most manufacturers recommend draining and cleaning your spa no more than 3 or 4 times per year, depending on how frequently you use it and how well you maintain your water. In most cases this simple process will only take about an hour to accomplish.

You may consider “wet testing” a spa before purchasing. This means getting into a spa with water in it.  Here is what you should look for: Verify that the seats provide comfortable support. You do not want to have to scoot down in the spa like you do in a bathtub. When sitting in any seat, the water should reach shoulder level. If it does not, you will not get full hydrotherapeutic value. Stay in the spa with the jets on for at least 15 minutes. At the end of that time you will know whether the seating and jet arrangements are comfortable.

The size of your hot tub should reflect your intended use for it. Will it cater to the needs of the entire family? Is it meant just for you and your significant other? Or do you enjoy hosting elaborate backyard parties? Your lifestyle and layout of your backyard can help you determine if you would like to invest in a smaller or larger hot tub.

The decision to buy a hot tub ultimately depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle, and budget. Here are some factors to consider that may help you make your decision:

  1. Health benefits: Hot tubs are known to provide a range of health benefits, including stress relief, relaxation, and pain relief. If you suffer from chronic pain or stress, a hot tub may be a good investment for your health and well-being.
  2. Maintenance: Hot tubs require regular maintenance to keep them clean and functioning properly. If you’re not willing or able to commit to the maintenance requirements, a hot tub may not be the best choice for you.
  3. Space: Hot tubs come in various sizes, and you’ll need to have enough space in your backyard or home to accommodate one. Consider whether you have enough space for a hot tub and if it will fit with your overall outdoor or indoor design.
  4. Budget: Hot tubs come in a range of prices, from several hundred to several thousand dollars. You’ll need to consider your budget and how much you’re willing to spend on a hot tub, as well as any additional costs for installation, maintenance, and operation.
  5. Frequency of use: Finally, consider how often you’ll use a hot tub. If you’re only planning to use it occasionally, it may not be worth the investment. However, if you’re looking for a regular source of relaxation and stress relief, a hot tub may be a great addition to your home.

Overall, a hot tub can be a great investment for your health, relaxation, and enjoyment. However, it’s important to consider all of the factors above before making a decision.

Schedule A Wet Test

The best way to see if this hot tub is right for you is by trying it out for yourself. It's best to experience the relaxing sensation of hydrotherapy before you purchase.
