So how much is a hot tub, anyway?

Shopping for a hot tub? Sure, you’re looking at fun features, size and seating configurations. But we have a pretty good idea that the number one thing you want to know is “how much does it cost?”

Truth is, you can get a hot tub at pretty much any price point. As you would imagine, lower priced tubs will include fewer features, and will be manufactured differently from higher-priced models. Yet they still provide an excellent hot tub experience. It’s about striking a balance between what you want, and what you can afford.

So, let’s dig in. Hot tubs are available in three general categories: Entry-Level, Premium-Grade, and Ultra-Grade.

Entry-Level Hot Tubs

Beginning at $2999: Spas in this category offer fewer features, but they’re affordable, especially for people who are shopping for their first hot tub. Many hot tubs in this category are called “plug-and-play,” which means they run off of a standard 110V outlet. There isn’t really much to the installation – you just set it up, fill it up, plug it in, and when the water is heated – enjoy it!

Premium-Grade Hot Tubs

Beginning at $4499: If you’re looking for a more traditional looking hot tub with a wood-like exterior and a shiny acrylic shell, this is the starting point. Here is where you’ll also begin to find fun features like lighting and water features, and jet-lined seats.

Ultra-Grade Hot Tubs

Beginning at $7999: For the very best ownership experience, this is the category you want to be in. Spas in this category are a definite investment, but you can expect them to last 10, 20 or more years. In addition to all the bells and whistles, you can expect efficient operation for low energy costs, unique design, innovative jets and more.
