How Big Should My Hot Tub Be?

The hot topic for today is how big your new hot tub should be. Delving into the decision process for that new piece of paradise should have at least these 4 questions answered. So grab a measuring tape, pen, and paper and narrow down your choices. The SpaExpo of Austin is here to help guide you to the perfect purchase.

Take into consideration that you can’t have a 7-person tub if you have a 7’ x 7’ space to place it. Knowing your maximum measurements for where your new unit of awesomeness is going to go will be the first step in the decision process. On average, a 3-person hot tub ranges from approximately 5’5″ x 7’ to the 7-person tub maxing out around 8′ x 7′ in size. The specifications for all the HotSpring models available will help you with your pro column of choices.

Under Pressure

You have your space requirements covered, now we decide the capacity size. If you are like most people, once you start talking about a new hot tub, the degree of separation in friends expounds. How many people will have regular use in the hot tub at one time? A family of 4 that will be using it as social connecting time may want the 5-person size. If you simply want solitude with your honey, a 3-person model will be perfect. The idea of having a weekly social hour with a few neighbors will indicate that a 7-person tub will be most beneficial.

Maintenance Costs

An often overlooked aspect of hot tub ownership is the cost of upkeep. While typically these costs are not going to shock your wallet, you need to understand the cost of maintenance and repairs will also be a factor depending on the capacity size and the installed components of your hot tub. A 3-person hot tub will have a lower cost than the extra-large 7-person tub. Our Highlife and Limelight Lines will cover all your needs.

Bells & Whistles

This is the truly fun part. What cool additions do you want to add to your hot tub? Choices like: the Covana® cover system that rises to a shaded gazebo or the Smarttop Advantage® cover that traps in the heat and designed for safety, built-in wireless sound system, salt water system option, how many jets will soothe your aching body, and the list goes on.

Deciding on your hot tub of choice should not be a daunting matter. Prioritize what is most important to your needs and get excited about the memories to come in your new hot tub. If it is girl night or bro bonding instead of a party for two, the capacity size will matter. Limited space for the unit itself is also a big contributing factor. Let the staff at the SpaExpo of Austin help you in finding the ideal solution and get you on your way to blissful relaxation.
