Can you buy a hot tub online?
Awhile ago this was unthinkable, but nowadays, wise consumers are shopping for almost everything online. Even a hot tub can be shipped for free when purchased factory direct online. Before you buy a hot tub online, be sure to know the basics about what you are getting. This helps to compare one spa with another. Although we often refer to buying a Jacuzzi online, Jacuzzi is actually a brand name of hot tub similar to how Kleenex is also a brand but became synonymous with the actual item through everyday use in our language.
Whether you call it a hot tub, spa, jacuzzi or even whirlpool, buying one online can save you alot of money.
First, when you buy hot tubs online at Hot Tub Outpost, you are dealing with individuals who have been in the hot tub business since the 1980s and have close relationships directly with the manufacturer. See the hot tub ecommerce store online. This store is managed by the international distribution and not a small dealer. If you want to pay more and buy from a dealer, then you may as well go from store to store in your local neighborhood and deal with all of the salespeople there. If you want to eliminate all the “kerfuffle”, deal directly with the Hot Tub Outpost USA.
So how do you know what you need in a hot tub?
Start with how big it should be. Do you need a spa for just one or two people? Are you overly concerned with energy costs? (hint: the bigger the spa, the more water there is to heat). Will the spa be used indoors or outdoors? Usually when placed outdoors, there is often more room for a larger spa.
A large spa is good for entertaining.
You should get at least a 5 person spa if you plan on entertaining, 6 is usually better. This may mean foregoing the lounger seat and instead get a model with seating all around. On the other hand, if you are using the spa more for personal hydrotherapy, then you may want a lounger seat to offer a more reclined position.
Once you know the size of spa you want and how many people you want to accommodate, as well as deciding if you need a lounger or not, then you have already narrowed down the field. Next, decide on about how many jets you want. Keep in mind, the more jets you want, the less power will be available at each jet, or the more pumps you will need to drive the jets.
A water pump will circulate spa water through the jets and you will be able to control the intensity of the massage by rotating the ring around each medium or large jet (if they are adjustable jets). If you have more than about 30 jets on a single line, performance will start to suffer. Sometimes a control valve will allow water to be moved from one half of the spa to the other, or a selection can be made in between the 2 sides of the spa to allow for more jets operating on 1 pump.
Once you have over 50 jets, chances are you have a spa with at least 2 jet pumps. That splits up the massage duty between 2 separate pumps and so those seated on one side can have a completely different massage experience than on the other side.
