So you imagine your perfect backyard setup – a BBQ, a pool, an area for entertaining guests, etc.. Then, you decide you want a hot tub! But who the heck knows what make or model to go for, or what’s a fantastic deal vs. a bad deal. If this is your first time seeking to buy a hot tub, you may accidentally overlook some crucial factors to take into account.
Here are 5 tips that will help you find the hot tub that best suits you, rather than get ripped off in the process:
1) When possible, test it out! – That is right, tell the dealer that you want to check it out and see how it feels. Lots of dealers will allow this. It will give you more than just an idea of how the hot tub will feel, and how you fit inside of it. Many hot tubs may look one way, but when you hop in they feel very different. It is always best to try it out when possible.
2) Do not fall in love too fast – For the most part, each hot tub is made to feel good. So it’s not uncommon to try out one and immediately think that it’s the one for you. It’s important to try multiple models so you can see exactly what’s out there and the different styles of bathtubs which are available to you.
3) Consider how you are going to use it – Sometimes you can go into the process of buying something like this not realizing how it will likely be used. Will there be multiple people using it at the same time? If so, consider that. Because it will disappointing when you have friends over your home and only half of them can fit in your new attraction. Consider size and style, durability, etc..
4) Choose a reputable dealer – Anytime you’re making a big luxurious purchase like this you should explore the business that you’re buying it from. With purchases in this way, there are guarantees, return policies, etc.. So it’s intelligent to do your research on the dealers you go to ahead to make sure you are not wasting your time, and that previous clients have good things to say about them and their products.
5) Price shop – You will be amazed how much prices can sometimes vary among traders. Some dealers may have really good relationships with certain brands and are able to offer you those products for cheaper. Once you find just what you’re looking for, you can then see if there is a better deal somewhere else (while still keeping in mind tip #4 of course).
