The basics of owning a hot tub

Owning a hot tub is one of life’s luxuries, but finding the perfect tub and knowing how to care for it can be hard at the beginning. The first step of purchasing a hot tub is to make sure that you’ve conducted lots of research and know what you want from it in terms of seats, loungers and any additional features that you’d like. After you’ve done your research, you’ll probably have a few questions you’d like answering before you make any decisions. In this blog, we’re hoping to answer all these questions about the basics of owning a hot tub. 

Which hot tubs are the best?

This is a very common question that we get asked and to be honest, that completely depends on the features that you want from your hot tub. That’s why we recommend doing a lot of research prior to purchasing your tub. We work with the world’s number 1 hot tub and swim spa manufacturer, Master Spas™, who provide top quality in all aspects of their tubs. A highly recognised brand is an important part of buying a hot tub, you can be sure that they are reliable and you know that your tub will last. 

How much do hot tubs weigh?

The weight of your hot tub is highly dependent on the size that you choose. When our hot tubs are full with water, the weights range from around 1400kg to 3200kg. With free delivery and installation included with all hot tubs, you don’t need to worry too much about the weight of your tub, as long as you have solid ground for it to be placed on. A skilled installation team will ensure that your hot tub is placed securely and in a good position. 

How often should you change your hot tub water?

Changing your hot tub water might sound like a time consuming job, but it doesn’t need to be. We recommend that you change the water in your hot tub every 3 months to ensure that it is clean and safe for use. In between emptying your tub, you should ensure that you are wiping the shell and the water line in your hot tub, you can do this using a simple cloth and some hot tub cleaning products, which are available on our website. As well as cleaning some areas of your hot tub regularly, you should test the water occasionally to check that all of the chemicals are in balance. Chemicals help to keep your water safe for all to use. 

Are hot tubs worth it?

Hot tubs are a fantastic luxury item to own. They provide many benefits, especially for your health. Hot tubs have been proven to help relieve stress and as a result of this, can help users to get a good night’s sleep too. As well as stress, hot tubs can help to alleviate symptoms of some aches and pains, such as those associated with arthritis. Hot tubs also have the ability to brighten up a garden and can provide a great social space for you to enjoy.
