5 Hot Tub Buying Myths Dispelled

Are you thinking about buying a hot tub? Or, perhaps you’re interested, but you’ve heard some things that don’t seem quite right.

In this article, we look at five hot tub buying myths and ensure they are dispelled so you can feel comfortable pursuing your options.

Myth #1 – Buying a Cheap Hot Tub Saves You Money

Let’s start with the old saying, “You get what you pay for.”

While a cheap hot tub costs less upfront, it may cost you more in the long run. Why?

Cheap tubs have less insulation, thin covers, and less efficient pumps and heaters. Thus, it takes more energy to operate them than well-made tubs.

Lastly, you’ll have a shorter warranty period which means you’ll shell out money for costly repairs in addition to your high energy bills!

When you purchase a hot tub at Ultra Modern, you know we’ve selected quality brands and models just for you!


Myth #2 – More Jets = Better Hot Tub

When it comes to hot tub jets, you really want to talk to your hot tub dealer. More jets don’t always signal a better hot tub.

You want to consider not only the number of jets but the types of jets and their placement. After all, a misplaced jet adds to the number, but it doesn’t necessarily add to your comfort.

Talk to your hot tub dealer about the number, type, position, and strength of the jets in the hot tub you are considering.

Another good idea is to take a test soak in the hot tub you like before you purchase it. That way, you know exactly how much you like the jets.

Myth #3 – Only People with A Lot of Money Can Buy a Hot Tub

You’ll find a number of options when it comes to buying a new hot tub. While we mentioned that quality tubs are always better, we also want you to know that a wide range of financing options are available.

We can help you find the perfect hot tub that meets your needs and your budget.

Consider a hot tub as an investment in your overall wellness and well-being. It’s a lifetime of relaxation and memories with family and friends.

Myth #4 – If You Have an Ozone System, You Don’t Need Chemicals

Ozone does reduce the need for chemicals in your hot tub, but you still need some sort of sanitizer to keep your tub clean and healthy.

While we like ozone systems, there is a great alternative to ozone systems.

HotSpring® Spas ACE Salt Water Sanitizing System automatically turns salt and water into active cleaners that leave your skin silky soft, have no odor, and eliminate the need for other chemicals. It’s integrated into the hot tub itself, so it’s easy!

Myth #5 – All Hot Tubs are the Same

This couldn’t be further from the truth. And this is the number one reason you should schedule a test soak before you buy.

Reputable hot tub dealers are happy to let you test their spas, and they have several models on their showroom floors with water in them.

To get the best hot tub for you, request the test!
