What to Consider When Buying a Hot Tub

What to Consider When Buying a Hot Tub

You already know it would enhance your life to have your very own hot tub. Now you just have to choose the one that’s best for your needs. Here are some key features to ask about when you visit your spa dealer.

water care


Embracing the spa lifestyle shouldn’t mean you have to add extra work to your day. Choosing a hot tub that’s low maintenance can make the experience of owning one so much better. Sundance® spas use the MicroClean® Ultra Filtration System that filters more water than typical spas. All models have CLEARRAY ACTIVE OXYGEN® systems.

massage options


When it comes to therapeutic benefits, not all hot tubs are created equal— which is why you’ll want to inquire about the types of jets, their placement, and the kinds of massage they offer. If you have a specific physical issue (such as back soreness, or arthritis in your joints), make sure the hot tub you choose can target your problem areas. Sundance® spas feature Fluidix® jets that provide a variety of massage combinations. 

smart tub


When it comes to hot tub care, ask if there are any monitoring features to alert you when the spa needs servicing, like the indicator light on Sundance® spas. Sundance® control panels also allow you to regulate your spa for energy-efficiency and lock it for safety, in addition to adjusting the jets and temperature.

And spas with apps like the SmartTub ® System remind you when you need to perform routine maintenance or if your spa needs attention, and more, making water care and spa ownership a breeze.



Beyond the soothing sensations, you want your spa to have style. There are lots of enhancements that can help make your spa time even more spectacular. Some to ask about include underwater illumination, water features like waterfalls, smart device syncing, and touchscreen control panels.

Some Sundance® spa models also come equipped with a SunCooler™ cold storage area so you can keep cold drinks within arm’s reach. You can also enjoy some SunScents™ aromatherapy



When buying a hot tub, it’s important to consider both the materials and where the spa will be placed. For example, Sundance® spas feature a SunStrong® Skirt, which is high-quality, UV-resistant synthetic cabinetry that’s beautiful, durable and low maintenance.
