3 Outdoor Hot Tub Suggestions for Dad

Father’s Day is June 17

Dads of all ages love Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs spas. They trust the Jacuzzi® brand and recognize the value in owning a reliable outdoor hot tub with cool features. If you’re lucky enough to be able to present a new Jacuzzi® hot tub as a gift on Father’s Day, that’s awesome! But if you’re involved in the hot tub buying decision together, here are 3 suggestions for dad-friendly Jacuzzi® spas.

1.     The Jacuzzi® J-LXL saves more on operating costs than any other hot tub in its class (along with the J-LX™). And what dad doesn’t like to save energy? My dad was always telling us to turn out the lights when we left a room. The J-LXL™ spa features sleek new styling, with a flattop edge and handsome cabinetry that fits into any landscape. And dad is going to love the lounge seat in this outdoor hot tub. He can lean back and enjoy a full-body hydro-massage from the Jacuzzi® jets.

2.     The J-365is a BIG hot tub that seats up to 7 adults. It’s built for good times with family and friends, and it offers a luxuriously wide choice of seating and hydrotherapy options. The PowerPro® Therapy Seat could become dad’s favorite; it massages the entire back, relieving stress and easing sore muscles.

    The J-315spa works well for new dads, empty nesters or retirees. A compact outdoor hot tub like the J-315™ has the best of the big hot tubs in a spa that seats 2-3 adults. It’s simple to maintain (important for busy new dads), and its lower height makes it easy for everyone, young or old, to enter and exit.

When you submerge in a hot tub, you need the jets to soothe the right muscles, the right way. Being able to adjust jets accordingly is crucial for optimum hydrotherapy. This is the standard by which physical therapy and athletic hydrotherapy systems are judged.

Thinking About Buying an Outdoor Hot Tub?

Winter is a Great Time to Buy

More often than you might imagine, people think about purchasing outdoor hot tubs in the wintertime when retailers offer great deals and home owners can take advantage of the cool, crisp air to enjoy their outdoor hot tub. Many people start thinking about purchasing an outdoor hot tub in early spring in order to have one installed and ready to use in time for summer. A Jacuzzi® outdoor spa is great for summer parties, but during the cold months of the year, a warm-water hydromassage is ideal for both therapy and relaxation.

Buying a Hot Tub: Control Panel


What Features are Important in a Hot Tub Control Panel?

Think of the hot tub control panel as the “dashboard” of your hot tub. This is the place where you’ll customize your massage, your temperature, and your hot tub’s filtration cycles. With a good system, you have complete control – you can create your hot tub experience exactly as you like it.


Buying a Hot Tub: Before You Buy

What Do I Need to Consider Before Buying a Hot Tub?

We recommend “wet testing” a hot tub before you buy one, that is, immerse yourself in a working demonstration model! Many Jacuzzi® hot tub dealers have a hot tub on site specifically for this purpose.


Buying a Hot Tub: Hot Tub Controls

How is the Hot Tub Water Temperature Controlled?

Most quality hot tubs have sophisticated digital thermostatic-controlled electronic systems: in other words, high tech systems that keep the water within one degree of the temperature you select. Of course, this control system is important for your comfort. It’s even more crucial for safety—particularly if you have children who will be using the hot tub.


Buying a Hot Tub: Hot Tub Prices

What is the Relationship Between Cost and Value?

Hot tub prices vary for many reasons. Like all engineered products, they correspond to features, materials used and overall craftsmanship. As with any other purchase, buying a hot tub is about value. What’s important is that you buy a hot tub that meets your personal needs and desires, and one that is well built, reliable, and well equipped for the money you spend. It’s about getting the finest, most enjoyable product relative to your investment.

Buying a Hot Tub: Hot Tub Warranties

Quality Comes With a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Warranty

Though a critically important aspect of a hot tub purchase, hot tub warranties are often over-looked. A hot tub is a major investment so you should make certain that your investment is well protected during its lifetime.
