Top Hot Tub Features

There are a few key areas of hot tub features to be aware of. We’ll walk you through the basics of each. 

Construction and Engineering

The top quality brands of the world provide products that are designed and made extremely well. This concept is no different when it comes to a good hot tub. We recommend paying close attention to a hot tub model’s base, frame, insulation, and plumbing before deciding to purchase. 

  • Base and Frame: A great base and frame will use composite materials or ABS polymer. No metals or wood. With this construction material, your hot tub will stay in great condition for years. 
  • Insulation: Full foam insulation is the best insulation option for hot tubs because it seals in any heat created by your hot tub, making it energy efficient and cost reductive. 
  • Plumbing: You don’t want a lot of pipes running through your hot tub; it reduces the power of your jets. So, the fewer the pipes, the better. 

Water Care Systems

This is one of the most important hot tub features. A hot tub isn’t a hot tub without water. There are several different water care systems you can choose from, including:

  • Salt: Easier on your skin, salt water is simpler to install but pricey. 
  • Ozone: This is a water purification system that cleanses spa water, requiring fewer chemicals to keep it clean.
  • Self-Regulating: This system distributes the chemicals on its own so you don’t have to worry about regulating everything yourself. 

Jet and Therapy Options

Another crucial hot tub accessory is the jet system. Various jets can be put in place to target specific areas of the body: the neck, the back, the shoulders, etc. You’ll want to pay close attention to the jet placement in the hot tub you’re looking at because those jets should focus on solving your specific problems.

Entertainment and Other Hot Tub Accessories

The last set of hot tub accessories that will be the cherry on top of your hot tub sundae are the entertainment features. 

  • Audio: Get a Bluetooth sound system put in place and play whatever music suits the mood.
  • Lighting: This feature might not be one you think of right away, but lighting is just as important as sound. The right set of lights in your hot tub can make your experience even more enjoyable. 
  • Water Features: Lots of hot tubs have extra water features, such as waterfalls, that keep things interesting and exciting.
