Steps to hot tub happiness

by | Apr 23, 2013 | Home & Garden

Hot tubs are an incredibly relaxing addition to anyone’s home, and with those summer days approaching, imagine what one will do for your garden. Imagine returning home from work and pouring yourself a glass of wine. Then getting undressed and sinking yourself into a hot bubbling pool of water to caress all your tired muscles.

The good thing is, this dream can become a reality for you today. Many hot tubs in St. Albans are affordably priced, and you can buy one for relatively cheap if you take some time to shop around. However, there are several things you need to be aware of when putting money down for this expensive item. This is a big purchase and needs to be considered carefully. This article will help guide you in your hot tub purchasing decisions.

Pick a spot for your hot tub

The first thing to do is decide a place in your garden where you’re going to put the hot tub. It’s important to put it in a private spot so outsiders cannot see in. This will help you relax more when you’re in the hot tub. You should also think about accessibility. Putting it at the bottom of a muddy garden, especially if it’s a long garden, is hardly a good idea. Imagine having to walk to the hot tub and back in your bathing costume every time.

You should also put the hot tub in a place where it looks nice in a shady spot. This will mean that you won’t be exposed to direct sunlight when using the hot tub making it safer. However, be careful not to put it under a tree, because falling debris might ruin the experience. Make sure the site you do use can withstand the considerable weight of a hot tub.

Choose the right hot tub

The first thing to consider when choosing a hot tub is how many people you want using it. A small 4ftx7ft tub will be good enough for two people while an 8ftx11ft tub can hold up to 10. When deciding the size you need, consider the space you have in your garden and where you are going to place the hot tub. Then buy accordingly.

Of course you will also have to think about price. A typical two-person hot tub can cost around £3400 while a hot tub that can accommodate six people generally starts at £6,000 to £8,000. This is a considerable expense. The other expense to consider is maintenance cost. Bigger hot tub will require more water to fill and more heat to get warm. This can all add up over the summer months when getting into your hot tub is all the more tempting.
