Reasons to Buy a Used Hot Tub
My husband and I have sold Hot Spring Spas in the small East Texas towns of Tyler and Longview since 1986. Over the years we have seen and worked on every Hot Spring hot tub that has ever been made.
Hot tubs began as wooden wine barrels that people put hot water into and use as a bath. Within the next 10 years, they would become fiberglass self-contained tubs with a few jets; more like what we know today. Over the years, hot tubs have evolved into a beautifully lit oasis of sound, massaging jets, and cabinets that look more like fine furniture.There are more bells and whistles in today’s hot tubs, but many of the same components, insulation, and powerful jets that were in the older hot tub models are at the base of our new spas designs. The patented Moto massage jet has remained a hallmark of the Hot Spring brand and is still the only moving jet in the industry. So when it comes to used hot tubs, Hot Spring is the only brand that can still get parts for any spa that is 40 years old! Any other company cannot get parts for used hot tub models that are 3 years old.
Whether you want to play with your grandkids in your own pool, have fun family time with your teenagers, or relax at night with your husband—a hot tub is a welcome addition to your life. It’s nice to know that you can get the best, even though you’re on a limited budget.
That brings me to the things you should look for when buying a used hot tub.
1) ALWAYS KNOW THE MANUFACTURER
Are they still making spas? Do they have a reputation for quality & a track record? Do they have local dealer support? Can you get parts for any year model hot tub that you might have?
2) KNOW THE PROCESS THE HOT TUBS GO THROUGH TO GET REFURBISHED
Hot Spring spas are built to last, which means they last so long that owners decide they want to upgrade to the newest features way before the hot tub is done. We take these trade-ins, go through every system, add any new parts, pillows, a new cove, and steps. Then we sell them at a fraction of the cost of a new one and back them with a 1-year parts and labor warranty.
3) KNOW YOUR LOCAL DEALER
We don’t recommend purchasing a hot tub from Craigslist because you don’t know how it was maintained and you don’t know what to expect from your purchase. At East Texas Spa, we have records on the nearly 10,000 hot tubs that we’ve sold over the last 30 years. That means we know the history on most spas that get traded in.
4) HIGH-QUALITY SPA AT REDUCED PRICES
A Hot Spring spa has always provided a powerful combination of massage and hot water. The same full foam process has been used in every hot spring since 1977, keeping electrical costs as low as $10/month. The exclusive 100% filtration can be found on every used hot tub, resulting in the clearest water possible. With prices starting as low as $1,000, you can’t go wrong with a refurbished hot tub from East Texas Spa.
5) IMMEASURABLE VALUE OF IMPROVING YOUR HEALTH
There’s no doubt that hot tubs are an investment in your health and well being. Time spent in a hot tub helps you sleep better, stress less, relieve aches and pains, and soothe arthritis. We’re proud to have a team that makes it possible for you to enjoy all the health benefits of owning your own spa, even if you don’t have the budget to buy a brand new one.
