Picking out a hot tub can feel like an overwhelming task. You know you want a place to relax and soak those weary muscles, but what spa is the right one for you? Will you opt for a swim spa or a simple two-person tub? Do you want something that takes up a small amount of space on your deck or are you willing to give up more outdoor living space for more hot tub fun?

Before you come visit us to check out our vast array of spas in Northern Colorado, we invite you to check out this how-to guide on choosing the right spa. As always, reach out at any point with further questions about the products we carry.

#1: Think About Size

One of the first things you need to do is measure the space you will be putting your hot tub in, ensuring you don’t pick something larger than the area you have. Take detailed measurements and account for extra walking room around the spa. Write down all the measurements and bring them with you to the spa showroom.

Not only should you think about the size of the hot tub in relation to the space you will be placing it into, but you should also think about the number of people you plan to entertain. Are you hoping to use your hot tub for hosting friends? Will it be just for you and your significant other to enjoy? Spas come in a variety of styles and sizes, with some that are cozy and romantic and others that are meant for parties. Decide what style you want beforehand.

#2: Consider Extras

Do you a hot tub with all the bells and whistles? Start compiling a list of the extras you definitely want to have. For example, are you looking for a hot tub with extra jets for the perfect massage? Do you want a table that rests in the middle of your hot tub allowing for beverages to be easily brought to the spa. Think about everything you want from your spa so you can ensure you don’t forget any important features when you get to the showroom.

Not only should you factor in fun features, such as extra jets, but you should also consider the necessary add-ons. You will need a hot tub cover, cleaning chemicals, extra filters, and other important items for upkeep. Ask the showroom you visit which of these extras are included with different models so you can factor this into the pricing.

#3: Understand Your Budget

Another important aspect to shopping for a spa is to create a realistic budget. Without having any budget in mind, it will be hard for you to even begin when you reach the hot tub showroom. If you have a set number in mind that is the top of your budget, you can enter the sales floor and immediately weed some spas out of the picture.

Take the time to think about not only how much you want to spend on the hot tub, but also factor in what you will need to spend on accessories and upkeep. Many spa showrooms also offer financing options, so be sure you ask about this route as well. The right financing plan can help you purchase the spa of your dreams.

#4: Pick A Good Dealer

Finally, no amount of planning will do you any good if you choose a bad place to purchase your new spa. Visiting a store in person is ideal, as you will get the best idea about the hot tubs in question if you can see them for yourself. Going to a physical showroom, rather than purchasing a hot tub online, will also afford you the chance to speak to a knowledgeable staff member. A salesperson who specializes in hot tubs will have years of experience working with people to find the ideal solution for their needs. This expertise will ensure you are actually purchasing what will work for you.
