More and more people began adding hot tubs and spas to their homes throughout the pandemic. With increased time spent at home, these spas became an oasis for many. Perhaps you’d like to do the same this year for your home. So, you might be asking yourself, what are the top hot tub features you should be looking for? Below, we’ll be providing you with everything to keep in mind when looking for a hot tub in 2022.
One of the most significant selling features of hot tubs is the massage jets. When it comes to Hydropool spas, there is Zone Therapy put into place so that every individual can customize their massage to target areas that need it the most. Therefore, there are jets in various places directed at the feet, legs, upper and lower back, neck, shoulders, and more. With so many options to choose from, everyone using the hot tub can feel confident that they’re able to pinpoint specific areas of pain or tension. Although not every brand will offer this, it’s wise to look at where jets are placed when looking at different hot tubs. You should also look and see what the controls of those jets are. Do you have complete control over customizing how the jets are operating? This is one factor to keep in mind, as it will determine how effectively you can benefit from using your hot tub long-term.
When looking at where the jets are positioned, you should also be considering what the seating looks like. However, before you can decide on which seating options are the best, it’s a good idea to determine how many seats your hot tub will have. This decision will be based on how big of a space you have for your hot tub. Once you’ve figured this out, you can decide how many seats your ideal hot tub will have. Now is the time to see the quality of the seats. Are there multiple options to choose from? Will the seats be able to accommodate all of your family and friends? We recommend testing them out in person during this process to get a better feel for them. For instance, Hydropool hot tubs have ergonomic seating so that everyone can feel comfortable and at ease. They have multiple seating variations to choose from, with some even including lounge chairs, for example.
Before deciding on which seats look the best, it’s a good idea to see how they feel. Remember, they won’t feel the same as they would once water is put in the hot tub, but it can give you a good picture of what you can expect. This will also allow you to see the placement of the jets and if there is enough variety to target every area of concern.
3.The Materials Used
Being aware of what materials are used to construct a hot tub is incredibly important to know whether or not it will be well equipped for your climate. For instance, what might be perfect in California, won’t necessarily work so well in Canada.
Acrylic shells are incredibly durable and long-lasting and can hold up even in the coldest temperatures for many years to come. Hot tubs made of this material are ideal for Canadian winters. Other options include rotomolded plastic or fibreglass, which are better options for warmer climates. They are great options for individuals who don’t experience cold winters; however, they won’t be the best to withstand below zero temperatures or snow.
Some of the top things to look for, particularly for cold climates, is that your hot tub has solid insulation and a high-quality cover. In addition, Hydropool is known for creating sustainable and durable products if you’re leading with eco-efficiency in mind. From their features like self-cleaning† technology to systems that reuse heat, these hot tubs run efficiently for only pennies a day due to their eco-efficient features.
Whether the hot tub you’re looking at features streaming waterfalls, or advanced sound systems or lighting, there are endless extra features that hot tubs offer today. Although all of the previously mentioned aspects should be considered first, it surely wouldn’t hurt to have a few of these extra features to really elevate your hot tub experience.
