Hot Tub Buying 101

Buying A Hot Tub – some factors to consider:

Purchasing a hot tub, whether your first or a replacement, is a very exciting event.  A hot tub provides relaxation, therapeutic benefits, family time, and warm water wellness.  However, purchasing a hot tub can sometimes be confusing and stressful.  After all, there are many options and more than 1 dealer you can visit.  Not all the alternatives are equal and there are several questions you can and should ask when comparing models.  Below we have listed some of those.  Come see us at Flint Hills Spas to learn more.

Comment:  Everyone tells you their models are the highest quality. Ask the detailed questions that will allow you to compare alternatives objectively.

Comment:  Watch out for hot tubs that look like “a deal” simply because standard features have been removed. Moreover, basic services like delivery, installation, and start-up may be extra.  In a worst case scenario, you may get a hot tub delivered to your driveway and you’re on your own to figure it out!      

Comment: Buying out of a catalog, whether a paper catalog or an online seller, carries risk. It’s one thing to buy a shirt or pair of shoes without physically seeing it before hand. It’s another to do that when you’re making an investment in a product like a hot tub that you’ll have longer than you own a car.

Comment: This is important in all cases, but it’s particularly important if you’re considering buying from an out-of-the-area dealer. It’s important to understand who will handle installation and who you call in the future if you are in need of service, how close they are, etc.

Comment: There’s no substitute for good old fashioned experience!
