What should be considered before buying a hot tub?

Many Finns dream of having their own hot tub, or spa, for their backyard or cottage. As summer approaches, the dream comes to mind again stronger. More and more Finns already have a lot of beauty in their yards, but almost as many have thoughts about what to consider before buying a hot tub. Read the blog about things to think about before choosing a hot tub.

Think about who and what kind of use the hot tub will be used for

Hot tubs of different sizes and made of different materials are available on the market. The buyer may feel that he has fallen into such a jungle that he cannot get out of. It's good to think about a few things in advance before making a purchase decision, and it's always worth contacting a reliable and professional seller. Choosing a hot tub is easier if you think about a few things in advance:

The size of the hot tub

The number of people is one of the most important things to consider before purchasing a hot tub. There are different sizes on the market, starting from a 2-person paly up to a 12-person paly. A large tub may be attractive because of its volume, but it is also good to remember that a larger hot tub requires more water and a longer heating time. A hot tub that is too small is cramped and can make bathing uncomfortable.

The most popular sizes are the 6–8 and 8–10 person palls. About 1500–2000 liters of water are used in palls of this size. Between these two sizes, the heating time does not really differ from each other, only about half an hour.

When thinking about the size of the hot tub, first of all think about your own needs and what kind of use the hot tub will mainly be used for. Is it intended to bathe as a family with the children or perhaps just the two of you with your spouse? For occasional guests, it's not worth getting a bigger barrel, but then you can brew in several batches.

Hot tub location

You can get a hot tub for a cottage, in the yard of a detached house, or often even in the yard of a terraced house. Think carefully about the location of the hot tub and the space around it. The hot tub must be installed on a flat, load-bearing surface. Preferably on top of crushed stone, tiling, concrete or terrace. Also take into account the space required by the chimney and firebox - the chimney should be placed far enough away from the buildings.

Also keep usability in mind. It is good to place the hot tub in such a way that filling and emptying it is as easy as possible, whether you take the water from the lake or the tap. A sheltered place also increases comfort: hardly anyone wants to bathe right in front of their neighbors. If you are not sure how smart it is to place a hot tub, you should ask the seller for a professional opinion. They also know how to evaluate safety issues in placement.

Hot tub cleaning

When buying a hot tub, please check that the package also includes a cover. If it doesn't belong, it's definitely worth getting one. The hot tub cover protects the bath, e.g. from leaves falling from trees and bird droppings, thus making it easier to clean.

In addition to the protective cover, the hot tub must be cleaned and the water changed regularly. If there are only a few bathers, it is not necessary to change the water every time. It is recommended to change the water in hot tubs for several people after each use.

A surface filter system is also available in Palju, which can be used to extend the water change interval. The device is put into the sink after use and it removes hair, pieces of skin, etc. floating in the water. You can also put chlorine-free active oxygen tablets in the water, which help the water quality stay better for longer.
