Hot Tub FAQ's
There are four important factors when considering purchasing a hot tub.
1) Cost – a hot tub can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $18,000. However, the initial cost shouldn’t be the only consideration – full ownership costs include things like site preparation (concrete slab), electrical wiring, maintenance, and repair. Which means choosing a spa made with quality parts and is energy efficient is important.
2) Why are you buying a hot tub? – are you looking for a way to relax, relieve pain or to entertain/connect with family and friends. Knowing this will help you determine the size of the spa, what type and quantity of jets you’ll need (if you need pain relief in certain areas, will you get the hydrotherapy you are looking for) and if you want optional features like a music system.
3) Location – preferably your spa should be placed on a level concrete pad, it can be placed on a deck as long as the structure can accommodate the weight of the spa with water and occupants. Additionally, you’ll want to consider the placement of the cover when the spa is in use, if using a cover lifter, you’ll need to know the clearance needed. You may also want to consider how long it takes to walk to your hot tub.
It is recommended that you consult with a licensed electrician to setup the electrical needed for your hot tub. Plug-n-Play spas come equipped with a 15-amp GFCI cord factory installed. We offer several other spas that are either 220 or 110V convertible. Most of our spas require either a 60-, 50-, or 40-amp GFCI breaker depending on the model. We recommend checking your local electrical code for wire size. The corners of the spa have a removable circle cap you can use to run the wiring conduit through.
