Buying A Hot Tub Guide

Our buying a hot tub guide will help you choose the perfect option for your needs. A hot tub can take your backyard area up a notch, and it’s a great way to relax at home!

If you’ve been wondering how to choose a hot tub, our buying a hot tub guide is really helpful. We have several options to choose from.

One of the best parts of staying at a hotel or resort is having access to a hot tub. Well, what if we told you that you could get the same experience at home in the comfort of your backyard? Owning a hot tub is an amazing way to turn your outdoor area into a true oasis for relaxation. It’s perfect for after a long day at work, or to soothe your muscles after exercising.

Learning how to choose a hot tub can feel overwhelming — there are so many choices out there. It’s hard to know which one is best! That’s where our buying a hot tub guide comes in. You’ll have to start by determining your specific needs, and then you can start to peruse different models.

Then, all that’s left to do is enjoy your new purchase!

What Kind Of Hot Tub Do You Need?

Before we start talking about what kinds of hot tubs are available, you need to think about what you would ideally like to have, where you want to put it, and how much you’re willing to spend.

  • Consider Your Budget: There’s no use in shopping around if you don’t have at least a loose budget in mind. Hot tubs come in all shapes and sizes — and prices — so it’s a good idea to figure out what you’re willing to spend first.
  • Different Types of Tubs: Just like pools, you can choose to have an inground or above-ground hot tub. You’ll have to head out to your backyard to take some measurements and decide where to install yours once you buy it. You’ll also want to think about how big your space is and what you can realistically fit in your backyard.
  • Finding The Perfect Space: If you already have a pool, you may want to consider placing your hot tub close by. And, if you have an inground pool, we love the idea of installing an inground tub in the existing pool area. Not only does it look sharp, but it will also make maintenance, as well as enjoying the tub, easier. Switching between the tub and the pool will be effortless.

The Highland Spas Series: Sizes and Pricing For All

One of our favorite brands of hot tubs is Highland Spas. They have two series: The Premium Series and Value Series. 

The Premium Series offers a large selection of luxury hot tubs. Their seating options range from 3 to 7-person tubs, meaning there is a size for every need. The Value series has affordable options for those of you hoping not to break the bank. And, just because the price point is right doesn’t mean you’ll have to give up on quality. You’ll also be able to choose between 5 and 7-person seating. 

All Highland Spas hot tubs are beautifully designed, feature insulation to keep the heat where it should be (in the tub), and even have a self-cleaning filtration system. The hot tubs have massage and therapy jets and even lighting so that you can use them in the evening. There are plenty of colors and finishes to choose from to make your backyard oasis your own!

The Garden Leisure Spa Series: For A Luxury Experience
