Finding The Right Hot Tub For You!

Finding The Right Hot Tub For You!

In the market for a spa? There's nothing quite like unwinding in a hot tub after a long day in the comfort of your own backyard. Buying a hot tub can be like buying a brand-new car. So many options and features to choose from, but there is always one that will suit you and your lifestyle best. Asking yourself a few questions will help lead you to the perfect spa for your lifestyle! 

How often do you plan on using your hot tub? 

Longterm: If you plan on using your hot tub every day and for years to come, we highly recommended going with a top-rated spa model. We love the Highlife Collection from HotSpring Spas which was engineered to provide an outstanding soaking experience through cutting-edge design and high-quality materials. Built to last, many Highlife collection owners have enjoyed their hot tub for upwards of 20 years! It's best to invest in a high-quality spa if you plan on hopping in multiple times a week. Top-quality hot tubs are well-insulated and energy efficient using innovative features to keep spa water hot while keeping energy costs low. The better the quality, the heftier the price tag. However down the line, this will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars. 


Short term use: Portable hot tubs are great for those who are renters, or for those who tend to move around a lot and intend on bringing their spa with them to their next home. Freeflow Spas are perfect if this sounds like you! Freeflow Spas make setup simple with no electrical hard wiring required. Featuring Plug N' Play technology so all you have to do is fill it up, plug it into a standard 110v outlet (no electrician needed!) and enjoy! Plus, this spa is made with durable roto molded technology. 

How many people will be using it?

Planning on entertaining your friends and family with your hot tub? Hot tubs come in all different shapes and sizes, so it's important that you choose a tub that suits your lifestyle. We carry hot tubs with seating for up to 7 people! However, if you're looking for a smaller tub that only seats 1-2 people, we have that too! Whether it's a 1-person tub you're looking for, 5-person tub or a 7-person tub, we've got everything in between! 

1-2 person tub:

The Freeflow Mini is perfect for small compact spaces like a balcony, patio or small deck with seating for up to 2 people. Allowing you to quickly turn any space into a private oasis. Stretch out in the lounge seat or sit side by side with a partner! Plus enjoy the 10 strategically placed jets and a removable accessory tray. Simply fill it up with a nearby hose, plug it into any standard 110v outlet and enjoy!

5 Person tubs:

The Hot Spring Highlife Aria spa comfortably seats a party of 5, with room for everyone to enjoy a state-of-the-art massage. With sleek exterior styling and seating for 5, the Aria is a roomy lounge spa that doesn’t take up too much space. It packs a performance punch with a host of hydrotherapy features and a lounge that includes a Moto-Massage® DX jet and foot jets to relax you from top to bottom.

Plus, choose the shell color that best suits your style with 5 shell colors and 3 cabinet colors to choose from.

Relaxation & Stress Relief

If the main reason you're looking for a hot tub is to de-stress after a long day, we recommend looking for a spa with strategic jet placement and an adjustable power level that suits you best. Jets can make all the difference when looking to relieve the tension in your muscles. Studies have shown that immersing yourself in a hot tub reduces your blood pressure by 11-12% while also lowering your heart rate by 15%. Hopping into a hot tub after a workout has also been proven to relax muscles, ligaments and tendons while simultaneously improving blood circulation. Sitting in a hot tub isn't just for recreational uses. The physical and mental benefits of owning one, outweigh those recreational uses!

The HotSpring Grandee Hot Tub features ample leg room and seating for up to 7! The Hot Spring Highlife Collection Grandee Hot Tub is our largest Highlife® Collection spa, including 2 seats featuring patented Moto-Massage® DX jets. With an ample 38" depth and variety of seat depths, this hot tub is ideal for smaller and taller users. The spacious interior makes it a crowd-pleaser that keeps the entire family connected. Plus, it features 43 powerful and adjustable jets to relieve the stress of the day away!
