Things to Know Before Buying Your First Hot Tub


Owning a hot tub the first time can be very exciting. But there are a few important things you need to know before buying one of the hot tubs for sale for your home. What things need to be done once it arrives? How long does it take to set up? All of these things are normal to ask when you haven’t owned a hot tub before.

Here are some tips on how to enjoy your hot tub practically worry-free. Because isn’t the idea for buying a hot tub so you can relax and relieve stress?

Preparing Your Hot Tub

To enjoy your new hot tub, you need to understand how it works and how to maintain it. First thing to do is read your manual. This will be your guide and will assist you in preventing damages as you care for your new hot tub. As you read, there will be steps you need to take prior to using your hot tub for the first time. Cleaning your hot tub with a mild, gentle cleanser is a priority in order to prepare it to be filled with water.

Once you have filled your hot tub with water, your manual will explain your temperature controls. Next step is to heat it up! Depending on the size of your tub, the temperature of water added, and the outside temperature, this can take anywhere from seven to 24 hours.

One more important step before you can relax in your hot tub is balancing your water using chemical balance strips. These will tell you where your imbalances are, and the manual will help you to get them right. Once your water is good to go, you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing experience afterward.

Be sure to test your water every few weeks as chemical imbalances can occur at random times, and you always want to have safe water in your hot tub.

Safety First!

Safety is always priority if you want to have a good time while using your hot tub, and we want you to know what precautions to take to feel safe.

If you have children, do not leave them alone in the hot tub, or supervise them at all times. Purchasing a cover for your hot tub will also help to keep everyone safe while not in use. You should not leave young children in the spa for more than 15 minutes, and the temperature should be kept lower for them as well.

Always stay hydrated when you use your hot tub, as the heat will only dehydrate you. So make sure you drink enough water and keep water close by while you relax!
