When you want to fully enjoy your hot tub, comfort is crucial. But how can you tell which hot tub will be most comfortable for you?
Below, you’ll learn about seats, footwells, and many other features that will help you take your comfort to the next level.
Invest in Ergonomic Design
One of the best ways to maximize your comfort is to choose ergonomically designed seats. These seats are thoughtfully designed to fit the shape and size of each and every bather.
To make sure a particular design is right for you, request a “wet test” from your dealer. This way, you’ll be able to sit in the hot tub while it’s full and know immediately whether the comfort level is right for you.
First, notice the seats and whether you feel any discomfort sitting in them. If the hot tub features lounger seats, they should be non-floating and you should be able to keep your feet on the floor while reclining. If you have trouble staying in your seat, you won’t stay comfortable for long.
If you can’t do a wet test, sit in the dry tub. As you do this, remember that if the hot tub isn’t comfortable without water, it won’t be any more comfortable when it’s filled.
Make Note of Design Features
Hot tubs are often equipped with a number of design features that can make you more comfortable. First, multi-level seating is crucial, as it creates comfort for all types and sizes of bodies. Second, make sure the footwell feels spacious. Even when the maximum number of guests are in the hot tub, everyone should feel like they have plenty of room. Finally, safety steps are essential if you have elderly guests, small children, or others who find entry and exit difficult.
Consider the Minor Features
Although pillows, drink holders, ice buckets, and the style of cabinetry may seem unimportant, all of these things can have a big impact on your comfort level. Look for pillows that are soft and easy to remove and clean. Also keep in mind that hot tubs without cabinets will provide very easy installation as opposed to those with cabinets, which can be more difficult to install.
