There is no doubt in my mind that the idea of owning ones own Jacuzzi hot tub is very attractive - the idea of just simply submerging into that warm attractive water combined with hydrotherapy and hydro massage is a combination that all begins to sound rather attractive. Usually though most consumers are shopping for a Jacuzzi style Hot Tub for the very first-time although some times if they are buying in Europe and have lived before in the USA then often you find that they have already experienced and understand the very considerable benefits that a Hot Tub provides. Unless they have had the opportunity of owning a Hot Tub previously more often than not they do not have the experience or the knowledge to be able to make a real informed and balanced choice. Many people might find that a bit daunting and there can be many misunderstandings - like all hot tubs are the same - that's a bit like saying an off road vehicle is the same as a drop head coupe sports car or a Van is like a lorry because it has tyres!!! Of course they are all very very different. Also many people are of the opinion that Jacuzzi hot tubs are very costly and that there maintenance is also prohibitive. Neither are true as modern production and engineering methods and developments in technology mean that Hot Tubs are much more affordable than they ever used to be and much easier to maintain.
As always it will pay handsome dividends to do some research and get as much information as you can on the products available before one ventures out into the market place. It is always a very good idea to checkout the manufacturers own web sites as this will give you some back ground and history on there products On these websites you will be able to assimilate information relating to the different kinds of jets and massage systems and what are their respective functions etc. Some Hot tubs have wave massage systems and you want to make sure that you buy a tub where the Jets are fully adjustable. There is in my view little point having one with just cheap bullet Jets that are non adjustable and these can be painful too. You will also be able to find out the various seating options and what Jets are available in the various seating positions. Some models will have one lounger and say four seats others perhaps two loungers and four/five seats others eight buckets seats and so on.
There are of course Tubs for just two ot three people but many prefer like a few more seats - not only for friends - but also to be able to choose different seats and massage functions. As the research continues you will become a fountain of knowledgeable and then be able to sort out the wheat from the chaff. You will be able to spot a cheap import as you continue to do your home work you will soon start to see what features are of the greatest interest to you and your family.
As with all things it pays to buy from a well established manufacturer one with many decades of experience and the three most important things to look for in a Hot Tub have to be simply :- quality, quality and quality. Remember that old but how so true phrase that buying cheap often means buying twice.
