Who owns such websites? Well! It is a matter of common sense that most spa dealerships create and manage hot tub rating and review websites. This does not mean that reviews cannot be genuine ever, but most spa comparison websites are created to get benefits through leads and are for self promotion. Be careful when you look at these review websites as they are not totally unbiased.
Fully foamed spa cabinets are the best…
This is not true! Heat rises and the major source of the heat loss is through Master Spa cover. For Hot tubs with extensive room inside, it is preferred to have a hollow space to enable warm air to be re-circulated by air injection jets. Full foam is again a great piece of marketing but is not the best insulation for a spa. Make certain you take caution when being sold a fully-foamed hot tub for its energy cutback capacity.
More horsepower is better…
This could be the case for a racer car but not really a hot tub! Adding too many pumps to a spa can only waste some energy. The hot tub salesman might highlight the greater horsepower of the spa, but when you will think of your energy bill, you will definitely go with the less powerful hot tub. Some brands on the market exaggerate the hot tub pump rating; ensure that you take a power talk with a pinch of salt.
These are only a few tips that will help you with a spa buying process… Watch out for more!
