Is It Time To Buy A Hot Tub - Ready For The Summer?

April 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

While it is still Winter, Spring is nearly in the air and the Summer months will be with us in no time at all. So if you missed out last year, then maybe now is the time to start thinking about buying that hot tub you have always promised yourself?

Treating yourself to one is not the expensive purchase they once were. Although you can spend £10,000 or more on one if you wish, a starter sized hot tub can be purchased for under £400. This would be for an inflatable hot tub that can be set up in just minutes, and seats four people.

The next models in the range are what would be classed as portable spas, and these feature rigid or semi-rigid sides. While being classed as portables spas, they are perfectly well suited to being permanently installed too. You can have them assembled, and start filling them up with water in just half an hour.

Both the inflatable and portable types come in a medium size box and can be disassembled and re-packed for winter storage should you live in a more Northern climate with harsher winters. Both types come with heaters and a pump for water or air jets, and the water treatments to keep them clean are simple to follow provided that they are performed daily.

So the two models above offer a low cost entry level hot tub, however if you want something a lot more permanent and have a bigger budget then an acrylic tub is the way to go.

These start from around £2,000 and can be permanently installed in your garden. However unlike a portable spa or inflatable one, you will need a lot more work to install it, as you will need a permanent solid base to site it on. You will also need to have a permanent electricity supply installed, with a Residual Current Device (RCD) for safety. This will involve having the work completed by an electrician.

Acrylic tubs are what many of us would class as "Proper" hot tubs, as they feature moulded seats, and have both water and air jets. They also have built in heaters and filtration systems. Some models also feature auto-cleaning whereby the system adds in the cleaning chemicals automatically.

So as you can see owning a hot tub need not be expensive. A good supplier will carry a good cross-section of the above models and will be able to provide advice on the best one for you.
