How to choose a hot tub in Buffalo

Buffalo Skyline

Hot tubs offer many benefits, including relief from aching muscles and joints. Daily hot tub use has been linked to weight loss, lower blood pressure and better sleep. Hot tubs can also help relationships by providing a space to spend time with your family or significant other.

When shopping for a hot tub in Buffalo, consider the following:

  • Budget: Hot tubs can cost anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars for entry models up to more than $15,000 for high-end models. When you’re deciding your price range, be sure to factor in the price of installation, which generally costs between $150 and $500 but can vary depending on your yard and the amount of work required.
  • Materials: The material used for the hot tub shell is an important factor in the price and can have a significant impact on how your hot tub performs. Vinyl is one of the most affordable materials, but it’s not energy efficient and can be easily damaged. Rotomolded plastic shells are more durable, but may also have trouble retaining heat, especially on cool nights and during the winter. Acrylic shells are more expensive but are durable and energy efficient.
  • Extra features and accessories: Many different features can be added to customize your hot tub, including storage, built-in stereo systems, additional massage jets and exterior lighting. Ask your dealer what options are available for your model and include space in your budget for any you consider necessary.
  • Seating options: Hot tubs typically seat anywhere from two to eight people, and your needs will dictate how large of a hot tub you want to purchase. Different types of seats are available, and your hot tub may have bench seating, bucket seating or a combination of different types.

If your doctor prescribes hot tub use to help treat a condition such as arthritis, it’s possible your insurance may cover the cost. Check with your insurance provider to see if your policy covers the purchase and installation of a hot tub.

Installing and maintaining your hot tub

Once you decide to purchase a hot tub, you’ll want to see whether you need to obtain a permit for its installation. Villages and communities around Buffalo have different requirements for permitting, but your dealer should be able to let you know what needs to be done.

Many above-ground hot tubs work with standard 120-volt outlets, but you may need to have a licensed electrician install a 240-volt outlet for models that need more power. Most above-ground hot tubs are filled with a garden hose, so no plumbing modifications are required.

Your final decision will be how you want to handle hot tub maintenance. Most dealerships in Buffalo have service departments that can maintain your hot tub for you, but you can also choose to perform your own maintenance to cut costs. If you decide to do it yourself, ask your spa dealership for tips and see if they perform free water testing and sell the necessary chemicals and supplies.
