How to Tell the Difference

Affordable doesn’t necessarily mean cheap, and you don’t need to break the bank to get a quality hot tub. Here are some questions to ask to find the perfect balance between quality and affordability when shopping for the a great hot tub for your family:

Is it a brand name you trust?

A hot tub is a major purchase for most people. Just as consumers rely on the reputations of well-known automobile manufacturers and appliance makers, it’s smart to consider the brand name on a hot tub. A “cheaply made” hot tub from an unreliable brand can cost you more over the life of the hot tub than a model from a reputable manufacturer such as the Jacuzzi® Brand.

Does the hot tub have the features you need?

To determine good value versus a cheaply made tube, weigh the long- and short-term benefits of your needs versus available options and compare them to the costs of each model. Are you looking for a warm oasis to relax with your family? Then a large hot tub may be a better value to you. Or do you have a physical issue that needs some targeted hydrotherapy? Placement of the jets is more important than the quantity of jets. In an area where temperatures tend to top records? A hot tub with durable cabinetry could be your best investment. Be wary of buying a lower cost hot tub at the expense of the features you find most important otherwise you may not get the full value of your purchase.

Does the hot tub have a good warranty?

Hot tubs that are truly “cheap” often lack a comprehensive warranty. Hot tub manufacturers using low-quality materials and methods sometimes won’t offer the assurance of replacement parts and service.

If you’re thinking of buying a no-warranty hot tub, buyer beware. Cheaply made hot tubs can become expensive if they aren’t protected by a solid warranty. Jacuzzi offers comprehensive warranties for up to 10 years on its hot tubs, with a worldwide network of authorized dealers available to back up the warranty provisions.
