Hot tubs are fairly simple. They’re essentially a comfortable space for you to enjoy the luxury of heated water and massaging jets. As long as the hot tub you buy can provide you with that, then that’s all that matters, right?

Well, that’s actually not entirely true. You may think that the only difference between a high-quality and higher-priced hot tub and a lower-quality, low-priced one are some fancy features that you’ll never use and a whole lot of money.

However, there’s a lot more to it than that. In fact, if you’re able to invest in a high-quality hot tub, you’ll ultimately save money in the long run.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at this quick and easy guide comparing high-quality hot tubs and low-quality ones. It’s bound to give you some helpful perspective before you make that big purchase from Great Bay Spas.

The Major Factors in Hot Tub Pricing

Hot tubs aren’t really like designer clothes. There’s much more than a brand name behind that price tag. Below are some of the reasons why one hot tub might cost more than another.

Overall Quality

More expensive hot tubs are built sturdier and with higher-quality materials, so they last longer and experience fewer issues. What that means for you is less money spent on maintenance and more leisurely time in your tub.

Design Features

You’re much more likely to get a barebones design with a cheaper hot tub, featuring potentially uncomfortable seating, less aesthetic appeal, less convenient hot tub features, and even less energy efficiency.

These disadvantages can take away from your overall experience with the tub. In other words, when you go for the cheaper hot tub, you get less bang for your buck.

Hot Tub Size

This is one of the more obvious distinctions between lower-priced and higher-priced hot tubs, but it’s important to note. You may not need a larger-sized hot tub to enjoy yourself, but you will pretty much always enjoy yourself more if your hot tub is larger. Why? More space, seating for guests—the list goes on.

Energy Efficiency

You save money over the course of your hot tub’s lifespan if you invest in a higher-quality tub. The more expensive tubs are also the ones with better hot tub insulation, meaning they’re more energy-efficient.

If your energy bills are lower every month, at some point, you’ll have paid less for the higher-quality tub.


Investing in a Hot Tub from Sundance®️ Spas

As we said earlier, it’s a fairly common thought that the features exclusive to high-quality hot tubs aren’t all that necessary. Once you know what you get from a hot tub by Sundance®️ Spas, you’re likely to disagree.

Fluidix®️ Jets

Not all jets are created equal. One of the biggest differences between high-quality and low-quality tubs is the jets.

There are few rivals to the Fluidix®️ jets offered by Sundance®️ Spas. These jets provide you with deep tissue massages, pressure point techniques, Swedish massage techniques, and more.

Dedicated Therapy Seats

Comfortable and convenient seating is one of the most important aspects of a truly luxurious hot tub experience.

Dedicated therapy seats with recessed and molded pillows mean your comfort is ratcheted up several notches in a hot tub from Sundance®️ Spas compared to a lower-quality tub.

Rigid Bond™️

All hot tubs from Sundance®️ Spas are outfitted with Rigid Bond™️ shell lamination, which provides your tub with extra strength and greater energy efficiency. A stronger tub lasts longer, and a more energy-efficient one lowers your energy bills, making your investment far more affordable in the long term.
