  1. Should I Buy a Used Hot Tub or a New Hot Tub?

    Leave a Comment

    Are you considering buying a used hot tub? Before you start scouring websites like Craigslist and eBay, you should learn why buying a used hot tub isn’t the best way to save money. In fact, buying a used hot tub will likely cost you more money, time and stress in the long run.

    Let’s take a look at five reasons why buying a new hot tub is a much better decision than buying one used.

    • You Know the Quality of Your Hot Tub Parts

    When you buy a used hot tub, you could be buying one with very low quality parts. You don’t always know exactly where your hot tub came from, who built it or how old it is. Even if you know the manufacturer, older models may not be equipped with the same parts as the newer ones. Low quality parts mean that your hot tub will use more energy, have to be replaced more often and won’t keep your water as clean.

    When you buy your hot tub new, you should know exactly what parts are used and how well they perform. You can either find out by talking to a sales representative or looking up the information online.

    ThermoSpas® manufacturers hot tubs using only top quality parts. From heaters with titanium components to our patented Throttle Control Valves, we employ the toughest quality standards on each of our parts. Every spa we make must score 100 percent on a rigorous checklist before passing inspection.

    This means you’re guaranteed to get a spa that will last.

    • You Don’t Have to Worry About How Well-Maintained Your Hot Tub Was

    No matter what the previous owner says, you don’t know how well they took care of their hot tub. Maintaining your spa is easy to do, but many neglect it. This can cause a number of problems. If the spa has been empty in storage or has not been run for a long period of time, its components may be deteriorating. If the owner didn’t keep their water sanitized, the pump and filter system could be damaged.

    When you buy new, you don’t have to worry about any of those things. All you have to do is take care of your spa. Check out our simple hot tub maintenance guide to find out how to keep your spa in good shape with our high-quality products.

    • You Can Customize Your Hot Tub to Make it Perfect for Your Needs and Budget

    By settling for a used hot tub, you’re sacrificing the opportunity to find the perfect spa for you and your family. When you purchase a hot tub new, there are a number of options available, so that you’re guaranteed to get the most out of your spa by finding the best one for you.

    ThermoSpas® Hot Tubs can be customized to match your preferences and your budget. You can choose the size, number of jets, colors, features and accessories to match your taste. We offer this customization because want everyone to be able to enjoy a hot tub that suites their needs.

    • You Get Personalized Customer Service

    After buying a used hot tub, you’re pretty much on your own to transport it, set it up, figure out how it works and maintain it. If it’s your first hot tub purchase, this can be a stressful and confusing process.

    When you buy a ThermoSpas® Hot Tub, our expert representatives help you every step of the way.

    Buying a new hot tub is supposed to be a fun and exciting experience for you and your family.

    In order to keep it that way—and ensure that you won’t be surprised by hidden costs, delivery obstacles, or installation mistakes—you’ll need to do some planning before you buy.

    We have worked with thousands of people across the country to help them choose their perfect hot tub and arrange a smooth and stress-free delivery.

    Whether you choose a ThermoSpas hot tub or another brand—there are questions that you will need answered, and we can help.

    Step #1 Schedule a Site Survey

    “We started seeing the ThermoSpas commercials on television. We contacted ThermoSpas. One of the representatives came out soon. He was very nice, professional, and knowledgeable about the product. We talked about features and sizes and the user-friendly products that we would need and cost involved to maintain the spa. We found in the catalog a spa perfectly suited for us, ordered it, and in three short weeks we were enjoying our own spa! For the first two weeks it seemed as though we were on vacation.” – Jim and Pat Mendenhall

    Setting up a site survey is one of the most important steps you can take when thinking about purchasing a new hot tub.

    With a site survey, you benefit from having a highly experienced and trained hot tub technician survey your property to discuss the location, installation and maintenance of your new hot tub.

    Most likely there are questions that you didn’t even know to ask. We know this because we’ve helped thousands of people across the country install hot tubs in their homes; and we’ve gotten to know what questions matter the most to our customers.

    Wondering what topics will be covered during your site inspection? Here are some of the top questions we get from potential hot tub buyers:

    • Where is the best location for my hot tub?

    • Do I need a building permit?

    • Can the hot tub be moved in the future?

    • Can I install my hot tub indoors?

    • How does the hot tub drain?

    • What’s the best hot tub size for me?

    • How does the hot tub get shipped to my house and what are the costs of shipping?

    • Will a hot tub pose a danger to my children or grandchildren?

    • Do I need to hire an electrician?

    • Will my deck support the weight of my hot tub?

    All of these questions, and more, can be discussed during your site survey.

    Not everyone who gets a site survey buys a hot tub. Scheduling a site survey with ThermoSpas is a free, no-obligation consultation with a hot tub expert who can help you consider all your options so you can make the best buying decision.

    At the end of your visit, you’ll get a completed site survey that can serve as a guideline, should you decide to purchase a hot tub now or in the future.

    Step #2 Site planning guidelines

    Although each homeowner has a unique situation, and a site survey will be required to fully understand the best place to install your spa, there are some guidelines to consider regarding privacy and maintenance.

    You can start with these tips, and then discuss them with a ThermoSpas expert during your site survey:

    • You will need a structurally sound and level surface for the hot tub

    • When using a concrete surface, you will need to give it plenty of time to cure

    • Double check that there are no sprinklers that will hit the panels of the spa

    • Consider the nearest bathroom

    • Consider privacy from neighbors

    • Make sure there is easy access to a garden hose

    • Use a licensed electrician

    • Be sure there is easy access to service panels

    • Avoid placing spa under gutters

    • Consider installing walkway to spa to help keep out leaves and dirt

    • Proper ventilation will be needed for indoor installations

    Step #3 Decide which brand is right for you

    We know that buying a hot tub is an investment, and that you want to make a smart and informed buying decision.
