There are all kinds of hot tubs on the market today with a wide range of prices, features, sizes, and quality. I have been in retail sales for over 35 years and have worked with all kinds of customers. Like many of my customers, I will research an item before I buy it to the point I know everything I can know. Sometimes a little over the top for my wife’s sanity, but it works for me and adds that extra satisfaction when I start enjoying it. Hot tubs come in all kinds of price points and features. The trick is how much do you want to spend and how much hot tub will you get when you spend it. I am going to try and break this down as best I can. I hope this will help you choose what is important to you and your needs.
Spas, more commonly known as Hot Tubs, are available in many sizes and price points. Like many types of products on the market you have your good , better and best. When you look at all the hot tubs on the market, it can be a little overwhelming. I am going to try and break down what separates them as best I can.
One of the first types of questions I ask a customer have more-to do-with what they envision in a hot tub.
Would you like a spot to lay down in (chaise lounge) or all open seats? How many people on average will be using the tub? How much space do you have in the backyard for a hot tub? How long do expect this hot tub to last? This gives me an idea of size, layout, and quality.
The second set of questions gets deeper into how the tub will be used.
Questions like : Is this for the end of a long hard day to alleviate those aches and pains?Maybe more for family time, social events, or will this be a place to relax, unwind to soak away stress and tension? These questions give me an idea of the types of features a customer may be interested in.
What to consider
In the next few chapters, I will be talking about 110v or 220v, jets, frame construction, pumps, insulation, warranty.
