Tips on Buying a New Hot Tub or Spa
People think about buying new hot tubs all the time for relaxation, but did you know they can also help manage your aches and pains? Whether you suffer from fibromyalgia, arthritis, whiplash, chronic fatigue, or everyday stress, you could probably benefit from a spa right in your own backyard. Hot tubs and spas can also help you to reconnect with your loved ones by sharing a fun new activity allowing you to spend quality time outdoors – come to A Hot Tub Place today and let us help you find the right one for your home!
Before you get a new spa or hot tub, make sure you do the necessary preparations and budgeting. First, see if you have the space required for a hot tub or spa installation; then, after choosing the location. double-check the measurements and whether or not you need to comply with any local building codes or zoning approvals.
It’s also important, for both the sake of your hot tub and your personal safety, that you consult with an electrician and don’t try to make any changes that are outside of your area of general household repair knowledge. For starters, you’ll likely need a 120-240 electrical volt hookup. Also check to see if there’s adequate drainage (draining and refilling your hot tub every few months is important to keep it running smoothly) and the right amount of ventilation.
One of the final things to consider before you spring for your new hot tub or new spa is whether or not you’ll be purchasing an ozonator – they’re a specialized water care feature that utilizes ultraviolet light to kill bacteria. They’re good for helping to keep your hot tub water clean (but they don’t replace the regular use of chemicals!) Typically, ozonators are located inside the front panel of your hot tub, but some types might not necessarily come with them already installed – another reason to do your research before you start shopping.
