Where Can I Buy a Hot Tub?
Hot tubs can be purchased all over the country and from a variety of outlets, including online, from a hot tub dealer, retail or hardware store or a national or local expo or home show. In the following sections in this article, we will provide some information on each of these to help you determine where you can purchase a hot tub most conveniently for you.
Hot Tub Retail Stores
Many hot tub brands, such as those we’ve listed above, tend to sell their products through independent resellers around the country. These are retailers, or dealers, who have their own stores that vary in size and products depending on location.
Jacuzzi® hot tubs, for example, can be found through hot tub dealerships at locations all around the country.

Manufacturer-Owned Hot Tub Stores
Some hot tub manufactures own their own stores in the U.S., in addition to offering their products through dealers.
Reputable Home and Hardware Stores
There are some hot tub manufacturers and dealers who have their products stocked in these shops so they can reach customers who may not live near a retail store. This means you will have access to support, installation, and service from the dealer or manufacturer you buy from.
Home Shows and Hot Tub Expos
Throughout the country, there are countless home shows and expos that feature a large variety of products for the entire home and backyard. Depending on vendors and the size of these shows, these are great places to check out hot tub dealers near you. You might search large national expos that specialize in hot tubs or visit a smaller local home shows that also feature hot tub dealers.
Home shows and expos generally have a lot to see and do outside of hot tubs and they are a great way to connect with the brand or manufacturer face to face to learn more about the hot tub you’re interested in. However, buyers should make sure the brand has a dealer in the local market and that the event seller is not doing a “sell and run.”
Online Hot Tub Retailers
Retailers and manufacturer-owned stores often provide the opportunity to buy either in-store or online. The opportunity to buy online can be useful if you’re based in a remote location, do not have the ability to visit a showroom, or if you simply prefer to shop online. Some suppliers that do not have a physical store or showroom for customers to visit may even offer lower price point products available online only.
These products sold online only typically have a lower price tag because there are no overhead fixed costs that come with displaying and selling hot tubs in stores. They also benefit from not maintaining a local presence of service techs trained to support those spas. This can be a real problem should any issues arise.
However, a lot of brands, including the Jacuzzi® brand, do not allow resellers to sell hot tubs online only. Some brands maintain a view that customers should have the opportunity to wet test hot tubs and try them out for comfort, size, appearance, and usability.
You may be asking, “What is a wet test?” Quite simply, a wet test allows you to get in the hot tub you’re interested in and “try it on for size” when it is filled with water and the jets are operating.
This enables you to get a real feel for the hot tub you’re shopping for. During a wet test you can decide if you like the shape and feel of certain hot tub features like loungers, jet placement, and more. This way, you can determine if it checks all the boxes for you or if you need to explore other options. You can request a wet test with a hot tub dealer or retailer in near you as you are doing your hot tub shopping. The wet test is key to helping you figure out which hot tub is right for your needs.
