Should I Buy A Used Hot Tub Or Spa?

May 20, 2013 4:47:14 PM

Let's face it. Hot tubs, spas, swim spas and plunges are expensive and they're essentially a luxury item unless you need them for a medical condition. Even then, you won't be able to file a claim for a hot tub with your insurance company. For many, buying a new hot tub or spa may well be out of the question, even if you need it to help with injury rehabilitation or arthritis. So, what do the professionals think about purchasing a used hot tub?Read More
Having a hot tub or spa is a great way to relax. Even if you're just spending a few minutes in one after a hard day at work, a quick dip in a spa can certainly take the edge off the day. However, it is a huge annoyance to have to clean your hot tub before you can get in it. Having a hot tub or spa cover means you can simply flip the cover off, crank up the bubbles and hop in. Most people buy one when they first get their hot tub or spa but may not realize it does need replacing from time to time. Is it time to replace yours?Read More

Let's just say for the moment that money is no object. Space isn't a limitation. Pretend that its the best of all possible worlds and you can buy any hot tub or spa you want. With so many choices available, it can be a true challenge to decide which spa or tub unit you want, so how do you actually come up with enough criteria to actually buy one that you not only want but one that fits your needs and your situation?Read More

Unfortunately, every day doesn't have perfect hot tub or spa weather. In fact, some days are downright dangerous weather-wise and making sure you take care of your spa or tub is something you'll have to take into consideration. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to ensure your hot tub doesn't get damaged and the water doesn't get polluted with debris.


Ripped hot tub cover strap


 

Your first line of defense in bad weather is your hot tub or spa covers. When the weatherman predicts high winds or thunderstorms (or even a hurricane or tornado!), there are steps you can take to protect your hot tub. Ensuring your spa covers are locked down is the first thing you'll want to do. If you're expecting high winds and possible debris blowing around, you may want to invest in some additional straps to supplement the locks ability to hold the cover in place.

 

 

Make sure the covers don't move around when the locks are tight. If it does, then additional straps become more of a necessity than an option. That's because high winds can get under the loose edges of spa covers and rip the cover right off. This not only means damage to your hot tub cover but could possibly mean expensive damage to your hot tub as well. Damage like this is rarely covered by your homeowner's insurance policies which means the money for cover replacement and hot tub or spa repairs will come out of your pocket.

 

Another thing the professionals recommend is to go around your yard and put away anything that can blow around and cause damage. This includes lawn chairs, yard art, tables, umbrellas and in the worst situations, even grills and mail boxes should be stored to prevent high winds from tearing them from their moorings. It may be a hassle, but damaging winds are even more so.

 

The old Boy Scout adage "Be Prepared!" certainly comes into play when preparing for high winds. Hot tub or spa covers that fit properly, thirty dollars worth of straps and a little time and effort on your part can prevent hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in damage which makes both covers and straps a great investment in the protection of your hot tub.

 

Happy Tubbing!
