BEFORE YOU GO IN

Ready to learn more about Sundance Spas in person? Here’s what to do first:

  • Take photos of your backyard so you can show the dealer where you want to place the hot tub.
  • If space is tight, gather measurements of areas you are considering.
  • Call ahead to see if you can schedule a private “wet test” so you know if you should bring a swimsuit.

ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS

Help your dealer help you choose your perfect hot tub by considering:

  • Who will be using the tub?
    • Are they very young or have special access needs
    • Are they very tall/short?
    • How many people will be using the tub at once?
  • What will be the main uses of the tub
    • Relaxing
    • Hydrotherapy to relieve joint and muscle pain
    • Entertaining or family together time

QUESTIONS TO ASK THE DEALER

What is the typical monthly energy cost of running a spa in your area?

  • How much time does it take to maintain the hot tub each
    week?
  • How long has the hot tub manufacturer been in business?
  • How long has the dealer been in business?
  • What is the warranty on the tub and its components?

TOUCH AND FEEL

Take full advantage of your visit to make sure you’ll love your new hot tub.

  • Jets – at a minimum with your hand, ideally during a wet test. How adjustable are they, do they match up with high tension areas?
  • Seats – get in the dry hot tub! Tubs vary in size and depth considerably so make sure seats are not too small or large.
  • Listen – How loud is it when the jets are running? How good is the stereo?
  • Maintenance – Are the filters easily accessible? Is it easy to use the control panel? Get a demo of typical functions.
  • Got kids?- Hot tubs can be big – a smaller, ‘cool down’ seat will give children a great place to sit.

WRAPPING UP YOUR VISIT

Inspiration – Do they have photos of prior installations, it’s a great source of ideas.

  • Getting Ready- Discuss Pre-Delivery Kit with Dealer.
  • Availability – How soon can your tub can be installed. Who do you contact for support?
