Many people began buying more hot tubs and spas throughout the pandemic as they wanted to transform their homes into a little slice of paradise. By choosing a hot tub or swim spa, they purchased something that could be used throughout the year. Maybe you’re planning to do the same in 2022, but aren’t sure what features you should look for. Will the top features of hot tubs in 2022 look any different? Here’s what to keep in mind when looking for a hot tub for your home.
The Seating and Jets of a Hot Tub
Of course, two of the most important features are the seating and jet options. Before figuring out what hot tub would have the ideal seats, you first need to figure out how many seats your future hot tub can hold. However, before you can determine this number, you will need to see how much space you have in your yard for a hot tub. This is a determining factor for the size of the hot tub you’re able to get, so measuring your yard is an important first step. Once you’ve figured out the size you can fit, you can then see how many seats you’ll be looking at. When it comes to the seating of a hot tub, it’s just as essential to look at the seating quality as it is to look at how many seats there are. We also recommend considering hot tubs that offer different seating variations, such as different sizes or types.
Hydropool hot tubs feature ergonomic seating with different options to choose from, including lounge chairs that allow you to be fully submerged in the water. Although looking at reviews or product descriptions to learn more about the seats themselves is a good idea, actually testing them out in person is also recommended. If you have the opportunity to do so, we recommend taking a seat in the hot tub you’re considering and seeing if it’s comfortable enough. Although it will be a much different experience with water and jets, it can still give you a solid idea of what to expect. Are there various seating options to choose from so that everyone can be comfortable? While there, see where the jets are located in the hot tub. For instance, Hydropool hot tubs feature different zones that target your feet, legs, shoulders, neck, back, etc., and allow you to customize your massage. Therefore, keep in mind how you can change your massage options. Will the jet options and seating be ideal for your family’s needs? This is something to keep in mind when looking at the features of a hot tub.
What is the Hot Tub Made of?
Knowing what materials are used to make a hot tub is an important part of your decision-making process because each option has its positives and negatives. What might be perfect for one environment wouldn’t necessarily be the best for another. For instance, acrylic shells are durable and can last a very long time, even in the coldest temperatures. These options would be ideal for Canadian winters to ensure they last for many years to come and so that you won’t need to worry about spending a lot on heating them in the wintertime. Alternatively, hot tubs that are made from rotomolded plastic or fibreglass are better for warmer climates. These options are less expensive, less durable, and unable to withstand cold winters. Therefore, knowing what materials are used is important for deciding which one would be best, considering where you live.
Eco-Efficient Features and Extras
Ensuring a hot tub has proper insulation and a high-quality cover are the first things to keep in mind when looking. For instance, Hydropool hot tubs feature self-cleaning technology and efficient heating systems that allow their hot tubs to run for only pennies a day, even in the coldest temperatures. On top of eco-efficiency, other features to look for include the extras that hot tubs offer.
Whether it’s cascading waterfalls, lighting options, sound systems, etc., there are more features in hot tubs today than ever before. If you’d like to enjoy a cold drink with the addition of a built-in ice bucket or add your favourite scent with aromatherapy, Hydropool hot tubs set the perfect scene to relax and unwind.
