Should I buy a hot tub made in the USA?
Many Americans look for products that are made in the USA. However, the simple fact that a spa is produced in America, does not alone make it worth the investment. Just as with any purchase, it’s important to look at all factors when purchasing a hot tub, regardless of where it is made.

What should I look for in a hot tub?

Beyond hot tubs that are made in the USA, you will want to look for other qualities that ensure a superior product from a reliable long-lasting brand. Here are some factors to consider when shopping for your hot tub:

One-of-a-kind features — From exclusive features, such as Infrared and Red Light therapy available only in Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs to amenities that can further enhance and simplify your hot tub experience, such as the Jacuzzi® SmartTub® System, you want a hot tub that offers items that no other hot tub can offer. After all, your hot tub will serve as your self-escape for years to come. A hot tub is an investment that you will be able to enjoy for many years to come. You will benefit by choosing the hot tub with all the features that will further enhance your relaxation and comfort.

High-quality water care and filtration systems — These two systems are vital to the health of your water. When you are ready to experience hydrotherapy bliss, you don’t want to discover that your hot tub water is cloudy or otherwise not ready for use. You simply want to turn it on, get in, and let your mind and body drift into a blissful state of relaxation.

The maintenance of your hot tub water is a key aspect of hot tub ownership. This can be simplified by choosing the right hot tub brand with the best quality water care and filtration systems. Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs exemplify the company’s dedication to healthy, clear water.

The Jacuzzi® CLEARRAY Active Oxygen® System works harder to clean* the water longer. Through this system, ozonated water is exposed to a UV-C bulb to energize the molecules, unlocking the Active Oxygen to clean.* UV-C technology** is standard on all Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs models.

Furthermore, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs feature a 5-Stage*** filtration process, which delivers cleaner* water. This process allows you to make fewer water changes and less effort. The stages are as follows:

Stages 1 and 2 —

The skimmer and unique mesh ProCatch™ filter work in tandem to clean* the water surface and trap large debris for easy removal.

Stage 3 —

This exclusive system features a 60-square-foot ProClarity® filter connected directly to a ProStream™ filtration pump that filters 35 gallons per minute. This gives you clean* water faster.

Stage 4 —

The ProClarity® depth load filter polishes the water down to a 3 micron level.

Stage 5 —

The second 60-square-foot ProClarity® filter cleans and activates when you are using your hot tub. This doubles the filtration when you need it most.

Excellent craftsmanship and build — A high-quality hot tub will be made with durable, sturdy materials that are designed to stand the test of time. The materials that your hot tub is made of can greatly impact its lifespan. A well-made hot tub is also the ultimate status symbol. You can be proud to own a luxury hot tub that has been built with the very finest materials and crafted by the most reputable spa companies in the industry.

Energy efficiency and insulation — The materials that your hot tub are made of up can also impact the energy efficiency of your spa and your energy bills. Make sure that your hot tub has been manufactured to be energy efficient. Insulation is a large factor in your hot tub’s energy efficiency. A well-insulated hot tub will help you keep your energy bills down while effortlessly maintaining the water’s heat.

Ultimately, you should purchase the hot tub that makes you feel good and that you like best. You are the one who is going to be using it and enjoying its benefits for many years to come. A few other factors you might consider when shopping for a hot tub include:

Aesthetics and style — Your hot tub should be a beautiful part of your home or backyard. The fun part of selecting a hot tub is choosing the one that suits your style. You can begin to relax and experience happiness as soon as you look at your hot tub. Consider selecting a hot tub that is elegantly designed and features aspects such as lighting and waterfalls to further elevate the aesthetics of your spa oasis.

Comfort and fit — Most people want a hot tub for soothing relaxation. You will want to make sure that you are comfortable and feel as though you fit properly into your hot tub. This is where a wet test at a local spa showroom can come in handy. This way, you can try out the seats, whether open seating or a lounger, to ensure that the hot tub you choose perfectly conforms to your body and provides you with unparalleled comfort.

Size and shape — You’ll want to consider the size and shape you want your hot tub to be as you begin your search. Determining where you will have it placed in your home or backyard can help you figure out how much space you have to accommodate your spa as well as the best size and shape.

When you are shopping for a hot tub, whether you want to purchase a hot tub that is made in the United States or elsewhere, it’s important to ensure that the one you choose will provide you with years of stress relief, comfort, and relaxation.
