If you’ve recently decided to purchase a hot tub, the fun has just begun. You will have many decisions to make in your journey to becoming a hot tub owner, and there many things to consider when you’re looking for the best hot tub for you.

One part of your hot tub shopping journey will be discovering nearby hot tub retailers. A trusted hot tub retailer can be a valued partner in your hot tub shopping experience.

Even if you’ve significantly considered and researched what brand and model of hot tub you want to purchase, visiting a hot tub retailer, showroom, or licensed dealer is an important part of your hot tub shopping experience.

With access to the internet, plus hot tub companies’ comprehensive websites and social media, chances are you already have a good idea what you’re looking for in your future hot tub. However, actually visiting a hot tub retailer can provide you with the opportunity to see the spas themselves, and even try them out when filled and operating. These experiences are invaluable when it comes to ensuring you’ve found exactly the right hot tub to suit all your needs.

You may have asked yourself, “Where are hot tub places near me?” or “How do I find hot tubs near me?” This article will help you answer those questions and serve as a guide to help you fund the best hot tub places near you.

One of the easiest ways to find a reputable hot tub dealer near you that carries brands you are interested in is to search the website of a hot tub manufacturer that you like. For example, if you are interested in a Jacuzzi® hot tub, the “find a dealer” page can help you locate a nearby Jacuzzi® hot tub dealer by simply entering your zip code into the prompt.

Before you visit a hot tub store near you, consider that location isn’t the only aspect to factor into your search. Convenience is important, of course. But in addition to having a spa retailer nearby, here are a few things to consider:

Credibility and Reliability — When purchasing a spa from a local dealer, you want to ensure that retailer will be there for you during the lifespan of your hot tub ownership. When you purchase a hot tub from a reputable authorized dealer, they can serve as a partner to you.

They can help you with warranties if any issues arise with your hot tub, they can help you with the purchase of supplies, chemicals, or additional products to enhance your hot tub experience. They can also provide invaluable customer support if you need repairs or service on your hot tub. Just like any professional relationship, you want to find a reputable spa dealer that you can trust for the long haul.

On the flip side, it is not recommended to purchase a hot tub from a vendor at an outdoor expo. Without the reliability of a brick-and-mortar location, it may be more difficult to contact the dealer if you need assistance with your hot tub or if you want to access your warranty.

Reputation and Longevity — When you’re looking for nearby hot tub retailers, you’ll also want to do a little research about the store’s reputation. Search the Better Business Bureau to see if the company has a rating or if they have any complaints filed against it. You can also check out Google reviews of a specific hot tub retailer.

It’s also a good idea to find out how long the hot tub retailer has been in business. Longevity is typically a good sign that the company practices good business ethics. This can help provide you with some peace of mind as you search for the best hot tub places near you.

Inventory Quality — When searching for a “hot tub near me,” you’ll also want to consider their inventory. Does the showroom display premium models from reputable luxury hot tub brands? Do they have a variety of different models, or do they only have a few older models to showcase? Consider what type of hot tub you are looking for. Then do your research to determine whether the hot tub retailers near you carry those brands.

When you’re ready to visit a hot tub store, you’ll want to go prepared with your wish list of what you are looking for in a hot tub. You’ll also want to have a list of questions that you’d like to have answered by a credible and professional hot tub dealer.

To help you narrow down what type of hot tub is best for you, ask yourself the following questions before visiting a hot tub retailer:

-What is my main reason for wanting a hot tub? For example, will you mostly use your hot tub for relaxation, reconnection, and socialization, or more for therapeutic relief for muscle tension or back pain? The good news is a luxury hot tub can provide you with all of these. However, if you can determine what you most want to get out of your hot tub use, you can more easily prioritize the brand, model, and features of your future hot tub.

-Who will be using my hot tub? Do you want a hot tub for solo relaxation or serious hydrotherapy, or would you like to enjoy your hot tub with your family and friends? When you are considering what type of hot tub you would like to purchase, as well as other factors such as seating configurations and options, think about who will be using the hot tub and how it will be used.

For example, if you’re looking for a hot tub that accommodates many bathers for social entertainment, you’ll want to look for a large luxury hot tub model with open seating. On the other hand, if you are considering a hot tub for solo hydrotherapy, a smaller hot tub with a lounger may be the best option for you. Asking the question, “Who will be using my hot tub?” can also help you determine what size spa you’ll need to accommodate your family and friends.

-What is my budget? Naturally, budget will come into play when determining the type of hot tub you will purchase. Beyond initial buy-in costs, don’t forget to factor in ongoing routine maintenance costs and average operating costs. The bonus of visiting a nearby spa retailer is that their professionals can likely help you figure out what your approximate operating costs might be as well as other costs of ownership.

Keep in mind that many premium hot tub brands, such as Jacuzzi® have a range of models, from entry-level to luxury hot tubs. It’s also important to remember that many spa retailers may be able to offer financing options.

-How much space do I have to accommodate my hot tub? Where you plan to place your hot tub and how much space you have to accommodate a hot tub are important considerations to determine before you make your hot tub purchase. It is also vital to ensure you have a proper foundation upon which your hot tub will sit.

Questions to ask your hot tub retailer

- What brands do you carry?

- How much will my operating costs be on average on a model I like?

- Do you offer financing options?

- What seating options and configurations can you show me?

- What are your warranty policies?

- Can I arrange a wet test on a hot tub I like?

A wet test allows you to get into a hot tub when it is filled with water and operating. This is a crucial step in the process of selecting the best hot tub for you. This will give you a true feel for how you “fit” into the seats, where the water line comes up to you when you’re taking a soak, or how you like the feel of a lounge seat, in which you are in a more reclined position for a full body hydromassage experience.

You should also let your nearby hot tub retailer know what your hot tub preferences are, where you are planning on placing your hot tub (indoors or outdoors), and what type of foundation you have prepared for the delivery and installation of your hot tub.

There are several common foundation options, such as a prefabricated pad, concrete, or a deck built to support the weight of a hot tub when filled with both water and bathers. Before your hot tub is delivered and installed, the foundation should be ready.

Discovering nearby hot tub retailers is an important part of your hot tub research. Once you have found the best hot tub places near you, you will be well on your way to narrowing down your hot tub selections. Finding the right hot tub dealer near you is essential in your journey to selecting the perfect hot tub for your needs.
