How to Choose the Most Suitable Hot Tub

Soaking in a hot tub has been proven time and time again to be beneficial to your health in many aspects. From relieving stress to muscle relaxation, it’s no secret that hot tubs are great for the mind, the body, and even the soul.

Although, since not all hot tubs are the same, it’s important to go over your options carefully. Selecting the right hot tub for you and your family can greatly increase your enjoyment AND maximize the benefits.

Take the Following Into Consideration:

Size of Your Hot Tub

The size of your hot tub is perhaps the most important consideration, and it’s one of the key factors that will affect the price of your hot tub and the hot tub cover.

Typically, for maximum enjoyment, you should choose the size of your hot tub by the number of people you ideally would have in it, i.e. a 4-person hot tub, 6-person hot tub, etc.

Material of Hot Tub and Cover

Find out how your hot tub is made and what the different types of materials mean. If your tub comes with a hot tub cover, you want to know what type of materials were used to make it; the quality of the materials will directly affect how long your hot tub lasts and how it looks over time. Higher-quality materials will be more resistant to scratches, stains, UV rays and other damage.


Depending on your taste and comfort preferences, you should pay close attention to seating. Hot tubs are usually designed to either contour to your natural body shape, or they may include a flat bench-like structure. Choose carefully!

Hot Tub Jets

How many jets are there? And more importantly, where are they placed? Some hot tubs are designed with multiple jets in and around each seat to massage your back, legs, arms and even your neck. If you want to maximize the benefits of hydro-massage, look for hot tubs with jets that are strategically positioned to benefit specific muscles. 

Brand and Reviews

When it comes to hot tubs, choosing a reputable brand is important. Stick to the names you know. These brands are known for quality and dependability. They’ve been refining and enhancing their hot tubs for years, so that today’s customers get the best possible product. You can also take advantage of customer reviews online!

Extra Features

If you truly want to maximize your enjoyment, you may want to think about some of the extra features available to you, for example, Jacuzzi’s Bluewave stereo system, This allows you play music from your smartphone and control it from a touchscreen display built into the hot tub, leaving your phone at distance. This is a great feature that is sure to enhance your hot tub experience.
