Choose the Right Size

However, a family of five will encounter constant battles of spa time if a smaller hot tub is purchased.
What Type is Right for You?
Spas, generally speaking, can be broken down into two types: above-ground, portable or in-ground models. When you purchase an above-ground model, most are self-contained units that have all the pumps and hookups needed to be up and running in no time. In-ground models require installation work and a significant initial investment, but offer customization of parts to fit your specific needs.
There are many different features and seating arrangements to choose from when looking at spas for sale. Finding one that best fits you and your family’s needs is important for you to be happy with your purchase for a long time. From two-seaters, to four-seaters, loungers to non-loungers all the options can be a bit overwhelming, but by taking the time to think about what you’ll most often be using the hot tub or spa for will help you make this decision.

In this instance, you not only save money on electric bills, but also on maintenance.
