Spa buyer's guide - What to look out for when buying your first spa

Buying a new hot tub or spa can be exciting and is a great investment in your home, health and lifestyle.

There is a lot of information available that seems overwhelming, but when it comes to making this great purchase for yourself and your family, there are specific things to consider before taking the plunge.

Smoothing out these details before your spa is purchased and delivered can make the process easier and more efficient, allowing you to start enjoying your spa as soon as possible.

Which spa are you buying?

Your first important decision is which spa best suits your lifestyle. Things to consider include how much space you have for your spa, how many people will be in the water regularly, whether your spa will be indoors or outdoors and what kind of features you are looking for.

Finding the best spa for you becomes much easier if you know the answers to all of these questions ahead of time. Another thing you may want to consider is how long you plan to own your spa and whether or not it will go with you if you move.

Where is your spa going?

Your next step after you have determined which Sundance® Spas-spa you are going to buy and exactly where it will go and what it will take to get it there. If you want an indoor spa, how will you get it into the room where it is to be placed?

Is there a suitable foundation, one that provides adequate support even when your spa is filled with water? Is there good ventilation and drainage in the room, and do you have enough space around the spa for necessary maintenance?

When your spa is outside, the right foundation is critical. It may seem sufficient to place the spa on a hard surface, but the ground can move and shift and stress your spa, which can shorten its life or cause the water to sit unevenly.

A foundation of gravel and concrete is best. You also want to make sure the spa is not under trees or runoff areas that can fill the water with dirt. Space for maintenance is still important, as is access to a water source and an electrical outlet.

Where will you buy your spa?

While this may seem like a trivial question, where you buy your spa is crucial. You may be tempted by a home and garden show or trade shows where you can find another brand's spa cheaply, but in the long run it will end up costing you more.

These hot tubs often do not come with warranties and are not built to last with regular use. A reputable dealer who can answer all your questions, provide all your supplies and spa accessories, and give you a great warranty is your best choice for an investment that will last for years.
