How Many Years Will My New Hot Tub Last?
Everyone loves a good bargain. But when purchasing a new hot tub, it’s important to consider more than the initial purchase price. There are many companies that claim to have the best deal, while failing to mention that their spas will only last for a few short years! When you do the math, many of these so-called “bargain” spas end up costing more per year than a high-quality one that lasts you for decades. Let’s discuss the typical lifespan for our hot tubs, and what factors impact that number.
Hot Tub Longevity:
At Combined Pool & Spa, we only carry top-of-the-line hot tub models from Caldera® Spas and Freeflow Spas®. While these brands have a larger upfront investment cost than bargain options, they are carefully manufactured with top-notch materials to ensure that you’ll enjoy your spa for many years to come. Through proper maintenance and frequent cleanings, your hot tub can last more than 20 years!
What Will Impact Your Hot Tub’s Lifespan:
When it comes to longevity, there’s a big difference between the most expensive and least expensive models. For instance, the Cantabria® 8 Person Hot Tub, which features 74 jets and lounge seating, will likely outlast the Aptos ™ 5 Person Hot Tub by several years. This is something to consider when deciding which model is right for you. If you’re willing to drop more money in exchange for a hot tub that will reliably chug along for 20 years or more, you might consider choosing one of the premier options. Conversely, if you’d prefer to spend less upfront and don’t mind replacing your hot tub after 10 years or so, you can choose one of the less expensive models.
Another thing that will significantly impact the lifespan of your hot tub is whether or not you properly maintain it. When first purchasing your hot tub, we highly recommend reading through your owner’s manual to determine what level of care it will need. Regardless of the model you have, it’s important to keep the power supply going at all times, invest in a proper cover, clean the filters and jets frequently, and rinse off before hopping in. These simple steps will ensure that you get to enjoy your hot tub for as long as possible.
