What You Need To Know Before You Buy a Hot Tub

Before you buy a Cal Spas Hot Tub or Swim Spa it is important to understand what goes into the process. Key factors are location, electricity, budget, warranty, the right spa, and finding the right dealer. Here is a guide to consider before you buy:

Choose a location

  • A leveled foundation is crucial – Cement with minimum 4.5 inches THICK is recommended.
  • Walkway to the spa is advised for easy and safe access in and out of the spa. Also, it will help keep your spa clean from dirt and debris when you enter the spa.
  • Access for delivery is a must when placing a spa. Using a spa delivery service is recommended. In some cases, you may need to use a crane to get your spa or swim spa into your backyard.
  • Make room for drainage. Depending on how often you use your spa we recommend you change your spa water every 2-4 months.
  • If you decide to put your spa indoors choose a space with proper ventilation.

Consult an Electrician

  • A licensed electrician is advised to consult your backyard and see what is needed to safely set up your spa.
  • Check if your electric box will handle the usage of volts. Hot Tubs can take 120V or 240V depending on the spa.

Create your budget

  • Luxury requires constant maintenance; therefore it is good to keep in mind the upcoming factors you need to consider before purchasing a spa.
  • To keep the spa hot, it will take more electricity, to heat your spa. Check with your local city to see how the usage will affect your electric bill.
