How to choose your hot tub

A hard day at work, an intense exercise session or one of those days when your back hurts from a long car journey. How often do you come home wanting a massage? A hot tub makes this possible each and every day.

When you decide to buy a hot tub, you should consider several points. A good buying strategy will ensure that you find the product that best suits your needs.

So if you are thinking of getting a hot tub, below are some points that will help you to choose the hot tub that you need.

Who is going to use the hot tub?

The first question to ask yourself before buying the hot tub is who is going to use it? Hot tubs have a wide variety of positions and capacity options, ranging from 2-person to 6-person hot tubs. You should ask yourself if the hot tub will be used just by you, or with your partner, your children or your friends.

Don’t forget that the bigger the hot tub is and the more positions it has, the greater the variety of hydromassage options. Choose the hot tub loungers and seats well: a lounger will give you a full body massage, whereas a seat will provide an intense lower back massage.

If you are looking for a family hot tub, the best option is the Swimspa Amazon; it not only provides you with a hot tub, but also a mini swimming pool for exercising or bathing throughout the year.


Where will the hot tub be placed?

If you want to install your hot tub inside your house, or if you want to install it in the garden or on a terrace, you should consider several points when buying your hot tub:

1.Ensure that you have enough space for the hot tub. It is recommended to leave access on at least two sides of the hot tub to facilitate installation and maintenance.
2.A level floor is essential for correct installation of the hot tub.
3.Prepare a drain for the hot tub, as well as a water inlet in order to fill it.
4.Electrical pre-installation for the hot tub: don’t forget to prepare the electrical installation according to the specifications of your chosen model. Each model has certain requirements that must be checked by a professional.

Can I customise my hot tub?

There are many ways of customising both the interior and the cabinet of your hot tub. On the one hand, you can choose the colour of the interior: white, grey marble, pearl finishes, etc. There are various colour options.

And you can also choose the colour of the cabinet that surrounds the hot tub. There are flat colours, such as Graphite, as well as those that have a natural wood look, such as Nogal and Thunder. For the most exclusive models, such as the Cube hot tub, you also have the option of the high-quality white solid surface finish.

The colour options can be combined with the different lighting options of the hot tub: the interior and the exterior of the hot tub can be lit up via its colour LEDs, creating a unique atmosphere.


How should the hot tub be maintained?

The maintenance of the hot tub is very similar to that of a swimming pool, but with some important differences:

1.Water disinfection: a hot tub is a watertight vessel of hot water. It is therefore important to ensure that it is treated properly and as required in order to keep the water clean and disinfected. To do so, use the Aquavia Water Care cleaning kit, which is made up of two elements: a liquid that balances the water’s pH level and Bromine tablets to disinfect the water of bacteria. Each hot tub features an automatic water disinfection system. In some models it is an ozone generator and in other top-of-the-range models, an ultraviolet light.

2.Cleaning the hot tub: this is a simple process, but it must be done regularly. The hot tub filter must be cleaned every 15 days with a simple hose; for easy cleaning of the bottom of the hot tub, you can use the Bottom Cleaner If you want to clean the bottom of your hot tub, you can change the water of the hot tub (it is recommended to change the water of the hot tub every 6 months) and use this opportunity to clean the shell with neutral soap, never with any type of detergent.


How much will it cost?

You will find a wide range of options regarding power and the number of jets. Always look at the massage options of each position; think about where you would like to receive your massages and choose the configuration that best suits your needs.

Keeping your hot tub in an environment of around 24 degrees on average usually costs €30 per month in energy consumption. This consumption can vary depending on the number of times you use the hot tub, but it will never become an elevated energy cost.

If you live in a colder area, it is very important to choose the ECOSpa option, which will allow you to save on the hot tub’s consumption thanks to its double thermal insulation.

Once you have considered the previous points, choosing a hot tub will be an easy task. You just need to visit one of the Aquavia Spa Points of Sale where one of our professionals will assess and guide you, showing you the product in one of their product displays.
