Finding the right hot tub can be difficult. Make sure you have the answers to these important questions!
Will you be a new hot tub owner? 60% are new buyers while 40% have owned one in the past and are usually upgrading to a newer model. Make sure you know the answers to these questions:
How many people will be using the hot tub at the same time?
How tall is the tallest person in the family?
What will I be using my hot tub for?
Where will my hot tub be going?
What is my budget?
Considering price, features and accessories is all part of the process!
A hot tub is a major household appliance, and with any new appliance purchase, you want to choose the best quality. The more reliable the hot tub, the less you’ll pay in maintenance and repair when the hot tub fails.
When looking for a dealer, find ones that has been selling the brands you like for a number of years. This is a good indicator for warranty and out-of-warranty services. You want to find a dealer who will have the parts you need on-hand and a properly trained service staff that can fix your tub. These are extremely important as I’ve had heard horror stories from owners who purchased their tubs from a questionable source or a big box retailer.
Move your office with minimum downtime.
Always “wet test” your hot tub before you buy. Wet testing is the act of actually soaking in a filled hot tub before you make your purchase.
Test the tub with everyone in your family who will be using it the most. Test the different seats with different jet pressures. If you want a lounge, make sure it’ll work for you.
Just think, you would never buy a car without test driving it, so the same should go for a hot tub.
Store your items for the short or long term.
Now that you have all your information, you’ve wet tested the tub and slept on it, you will have a fresh and relaxed mind.
Buying a hot tub should be a pleasurable experience. Make sure you are comfortable with the salesman. If you’re not, choose another one.
Once you’ve signed the papers, you can celebrate becoming the owner of a new hot tub.
When the hot tub arrives, inspect it for any damages and make sure everything works before the delivery team leaves your property. A good team will install, fill and walk you through the process of operating your new hot tub.
