Hot Tub Owner Questions and Answers

Updated: January 31st, 2023

Do you offer hot tub removal?

Yes, we offer hot tub removal services for anyone in need of it. The cost of hot tub removal services can vary depending on a number of factors, including the size of the hot tub, the location of the hot tub, and the equipment needed to remove it safely. Typically, the price range for hot tub removal services can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.

The process of hot tub removal involves a few key steps. First, our team will assess the hot tub and its location to determine the best way to remove it safely. This may involve disconnecting the hot tub from any electrical or plumbing connections, as well as dismantling any decks or structures that are surrounding the hot tub.

Once the hot tub is disconnected and dismantled, our team will use specialized equipment to remove it from the location. This may involve using a crane or other lifting equipment to hoist the hot tub out of the location. After the hot tub is removed, our team will clean up the area and dispose of any debris, ensuring that the location is left clean and safe for use.

Can I use my hot tub all year long?

Yes, you can use your hot tub all year long! In fact, hot tubs are designed to be used year-round. Insulation helps to keep heat in so you can enjoy your hot tub even when the weather is cold.

During the summer months, you can turn down the temperature of your hot tub to make it more refreshing. A temperature around body temperature (around 98-100°F) can be particularly refreshing on a hot summer day. In the cooler months, you may want to keep the temperature a bit higher to help you stay warm, although this will depend on your personal preferences.

Overall, hot tubs are designed to be used year-round, and with proper insulation and an insulating cover, you can enjoy your hot tub no matter what the weather is like outside. Whether you want to relax in a warm, soothing hot tub on a cold winter day, or cool off in a refreshing hot tub on a hot summer day, a hot tub can provide a welcome retreat all year round.

Do I need an electrician or special wiring for a hot tub?

Most hot tubs require special wiring to operate safely and efficiently. Depending on the model you choose, with the exception of plug-and-play models, you may need to have your hot tub wired by a licensed electrician. The cost of electrical installation for a hot tub can vary widely, depending on factors such as the size of the hot tub, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the hot tub. On average, you can expect to pay between $500 and $1,500 for electrical installation for a hot tub, although prices may be higher or lower depending on your specific circumstances.

To ensure the safety of your hot tub and those who use it, it is important to have your hot tub wired by a licensed electrician who is knowledgeable about the specific requirements for hot tubs. In addition to installing the necessary wiring, an electrician may also recommend installing a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outside as an emergency disconnect for the hot tub. This can make it easier for service technicians to access the hot tub if needed and can help protect against electrical accidents.

What’s the difference between a hot tub with a lounger and a hot tub without?

A lounge seat in a hot tub is a dedicated seat that is intended for the use of one person. Whether or not a lounge seat is a good choice for you is a matter of personal preference and will depend on your individual needs and preferences. Some people may find that a lounge seat is more comfortable for them, while others may prefer a traditional seat or a recliner seat.

It’s worth noting that a lounge seat can take up 1-2 traditional seats, so if you have a smaller hot tub or you want to be able to accommodate more people, you may want to consider this when deciding on the type of seats you want in your hot tub. Additionally, if you tend to float in a hot tub, a lounge seat may not be the most comfortable option for you. Ultimately, the best seat for you will depend on your personal preferences and how you plan to use your hot tub. To get a better idea of which hot tub is right for you we offer wet tests. During a wet test, you can try out different hot tub models and experience firsthand what it’s like to sit in them and use the various features. This can help you get a better sense of which hot tub is the best fit for your needs and preferences.
