Do I want to entertain people with the spa or do I want to enjoy it all to myself? Should I buy any accessories and if so, which ones? It’s easy to feel bogged down with so many questions looming, but we are here to help ease your worries. You simply cannot go wrong with a Hot Spring® spa.

1. Whereis the perfect location for my hot tub?
There is perfect location that will work for everyone, but there are several things you should consider when purchasing your spa. A great starting point is to consider the options that your house provides. Some houses may have the perfect yard for an outdoor spa, while others may have adequate space indoors. It may help to determine what activities you want to use your hot tub for and when you plan to use it most.

  • Do you plan to use your spa during the summer or during the winter? If you do not want to trudge through the yard during extreme temperatures, it may be wise to position your spa closer to your home or indoors.
  • Do you want to use your hot tub for relaxation? Position it so that you have a beautiful view where you are free from distractions such as road noise or neighbors.
  • What size hot tub should I buy? Hot Spring makes hot tubs to accommodate every need. Discover more about our newest models.
