Aesthetics and ambiance

The style and design of your hot tub will enhance the area in which it is placed, whether indoors or outdoors. Your spa oasis should bring you joy from the first moment you look at it. This begins with a beautiful design that is also purposeful in its shape and elements.

Best quality water management system and filtration system

The quality of your spa’s water management system and filtration system can make or break your hot tub experience. When it’s time for a soak, you don’t want to be worrying about whether the water is clean and safe. You’ll want the peace of mind that your hot tub is equipped with the best systems to ensure safe and clean water.

Ease of use and smart technology

Relieving your stress is likely one of the top reasons for wanting a hot tub. So when selecting a hot tub, you want to make sure trying to use it doesn’t add to your stress.

Where can I find the best 9 person hot tubs?

Doing online research is an excellent first step toward narrowing down the type and brand of spa that you want to purchase. The next step is visiting an authorized spa dealership in your area. A visit to a hot tub showroom can give you a more complete idea of the size, shape, feel, and amenities of a specific model that you have your eye on.

More importantly, you can schedule a wet test during which you can try out the 9 person spa you like while it is filled and operating. This allows you to test the feel and configuration of the seats, experience the jets, and determine whether the spa height (or depth) provides you with the highest level of comfort. During a wet test, you can also ask your spa dealer for a demonstration of exactly how a particular model works.

One of the key benefits of luxury spas, such as Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, is that they are designed to be simple and easy to operate. After a long day, preparing your hot tub for a soak shouldn’t add one more stressor to your mind. Your hot tub should be ready to go when you are—so make sure you select a hot tub that is designed to do the work for you. Then all you have to do is step in, sit back, and soak in the ultimate relaxation with your friends.

*Clean is defined as the removal of microscopic (down to 3 micron level, varies by model) debris from the water. The CLEARRAY Active Oxygen® System utilizes various technologies to achieve cleanliness. One of them is ozone, which aids in the grouping of smaller debris to form larger clusters that can be more easily captured in the filtration process.
