Hot Tub

Buying a hot tub can be intimidating, whether you are buying it for a business or for personal use. There are so many options with varying features, but one of the most important that the hot tub salesperson will tell you about is the jets. Most of the other features are easy to understand, but jets can be tricky. To compare multiple models from different manufacturers, TubHQ regularly posts a lot of content reviewing a wide variety of models. But when it comes to jets, here’s everything you need to know.

Quality Not Quantity

Many sellers will try to sell you their hot tubs by mentioning that it has more jets than other models. However, if the jets are not placed in appropriate locations, or the motor is too weak to handle that many jets, then the extra jets should be considered a disadvantage.

Variety And Location Matters

The jets should have variable diameters – the actual opening and not the chrome surrounding it. This means that different jets will target specific muscles according to their needs. They should be located in such a way that they target the different areas of your body and not just jetting water to create a whirlpool. Some models even go as far as to have differently shaped jets for each area depending on its function.

Customization Is An Extra Feature

While not all fixed hot tubs give you the option to customize jet pressure and movement, it is a feature that some high-end hot tubs offer. By allowing you to control the pressure to your liking, the hot tub experience is greatly improved. Also, some jets can provide different types of massages such as pulsating or rotating. Massages are very subjective and it is always better if you can customize your experience to suit your preferences. You may even be able to turn off some jets and leave others on. For example, if you only want a foot massage you can turn off the rest of the chest and focus solely on your feet.

Pumping Power Is Extremely Important

The motor that is working to pump water through those jets should be powerful enough to handle the pressure. There is no use having the right jets, at the right locations, and customized to your preferences; if there is no motor to pump the water through the jets.

Some Sellers Offer Test Soaks

Many (but not all) sellers offer potential buyers to schedule a day to try out a hot tub they are interested in. If you can test the experience you will be able to tell, without a doubt, whether the hot tub is right for you. There are many factors to consider that may only be obvious when you have a soak in the hot tub.

Buying a hot tub does not have to be complicated. By arming yourself with the required knowledge, you can make an informed purchase to get the hot tub that suits your needs and preferences. Your budget should not be the only factor to consider when making such an investment.
