What to Consider When Choosing the Best Hot Tub for You

Putting a hot tub in your backyard can be a life-changing decision, but it does require a considerable commitment of both time and money. That’s why you want to make sure that the hot tub you buy is the perfect one for you.

But what exactly makes a particular hot tub “the one”? Well, there are a number of factors to consider before committing to any purchases, some of them obvious and others more obscure.

In order to help you check off every last box on your perfect Jacuzzi® Hot Tub checklist, we’ve compiled this simple guide to everything you should think about when selecting the hot tub of your dreams.


Your Perfect Jacuzzi® Checklist

It’s safe to say that you’ll be able to enjoy pretty much any hot tub you get the opportunity to kick back in, but there are definitely some different factors you should consider in order to get the most out of your investment. We’ve listed the most significant among them below:


Who Is the Hot Tub for?

If you live alone or it’s just you and a significant other, and you don’t plan on having to accommodate too many guests, then that’s going to play a significant role in the size of the hot tub you decide on.

Buying a hot tub that’s much bigger than what you’re going to need will be a lot of extra money you didn’t have to spend, and buying a tub that’s too small for everyone to enjoy all at once then means you may feel as though you’re missing out on an essential aspect of your investment.

You also want to consider the age of the people who are going to be using the hot tub, as well as any accessibility needs that you’re going to have to meet in order for every user to fully enjoy the experience.


What Do You Want from Your Hot Tub?


Think about the number one reason why you want to invest in a Jacuzzi® for your home. Do you want to enjoy the benefits of convenient daily hydrotherapy? Do you want to add another layer of entertainment to your backyard when you’re hosting parties? Do you want something that your family will be able to enjoy together?

The answer to this question will inform your decision when it comes time to select the hot tub that you’re going to bring home.


What Hot Tub Features Do You Want?


While there are general features that just about any model of Jacuzzi® is going to offer, you might be surprised at the number of different things certain models are capable of.

Look into all of the different features available to you and decide which ones are absolute must-haves, which ones would be nice but aren’t essential, and which ones you could do without. That list alone should narrow down your options considerably.


How Much Space Do You Have?


If you want a very practical way to eliminate some options for your future Jacuzzi®, just figure out the maximum amount of space you’ve got for it in your backyard or home. When it comes down to physical space limitations, there’s only so much you can possibly do, which should actually make your selection process a bit simpler.

It’s also important to consider the delivery of your hot tub when determining how much space you have.

You may have a big open area in your backyard that could accommodate a Jacuzzi® the size of an Olympic swimming pool, but all that room will mean nothing if you don’t have the ability to get the hot tub from the delivery truck into your backyard.


What Is Your Budget?

Another very practical way to narrow down your selection is by determining the maximum amount of money you’re willing to spend on your Jacuzzi®.

Sure, all those fancy hot tub features may seem like a dream, but that’s all they’ll ever be if you simply don’t have the finances for them. However, you should also keep in mind that you’ll likely be able to finance your tub, which can potentially expand your options.
