I WANT TO BUY A SPA! WHAT QUESTIONS SHOULD I ASK?

Buying a spa is a big decision, and knowing all the facts ahead of time is very important! Here is a list of items we want you to know about before you make your decision. (But scroll down and check out our fancy Hot Tub Buyer’s Checklist too!)

1. WHICH SIZE SPA DO I NEED?

Think about how many people will be using the spa at any given time, and that will help us arrive at a recommendation. Sometimes the amount of space you have available will dictate the size that you purchase.

2. WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO GET RID OF MY OLD SPA?

Don’t worry about it! We will take care of hauling the old one away. If it has any resale value, you might get a credit toward the new purchase!

3. HOW WILL I GET THE SPA HOOKED UP AND WORKING ONCE IT ARRIVES?

We can arrange to have it hooked up by an electrician. If you have an existing spa now, the electrician may be able to use the existing electrical service. Leave it to us to make the arrangements. If you have your own electrician that you prefer, we will get him any information he may need to complete the job.

4. HOW MUCH WILL IT COST TO BUY A NEW SPA?

This figure will vary depending on the size, make and model of the spa, and what we need to do to get it hooked up and working.  Our spas start as low as $3495.00 + tax. You will get the complete cost of the spa and delivery fees in advance, and in writing! Electrical, carpentry, or foundation will always cost extra. We have contractors that can handle it.

5. HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF THE SPA ONCE IT’S INSTALLED?

Once the spa is in place and wired up by the electrician, it can be filled. Once it is filled, one of our staff members will meet with you by appointment to put the finishing touches on the job! We will check all functions, and then show you how to use your new spa. We will bring your water care products, which are included in every purchase, and show you how to use the products. After the purchase, we are available to answer questions for you, and to help you with any issues related to the installation. You can also bring a water sample in to the store for testing as much as once per month!

6. WHICH BRAND SHOULD I BUY?

Thoughts from our owner, Bill Sullivan: “I have always liked the Hot Spring brand the best! When you talk about durability and reliability, they are number uno. They also have patented ‘Moto Massage’ jetting, which gives you a hydrotherapy massage. Their spas also have a 100% filtration system that no other spa company offers.  Most spas filter about 1/2 of the water at any given time, which means the water will not be as clean as it could be.”

7. WHAT AM I FORGETTING TO ASK BEFORE I PURCHASE?

We want you to know that you won’t be treated like a stranger when you come into our store! When you do business with us, you will get the personal touch. You’re not dealing with a BIG BOX STORE OR A WEBSITE, NEITHER OF WHICH OFFER SERVICE AFTER THE SALE! If your new spa needs help in the future, we will be here for you and ready to help. All of our spas have generous warranties, which we will discuss with you.
