Selecting your hot tub is a personal experience, and often leaves people wondering which size is the best fit for their lifestyle.
For many people, narrowing down their options and finding the right ones that meet their unique demands often leads them to one common answer: 5-6 person hot tubs!
These models are some of the most popular choices, and for good reason!
They offer the most flexibility of any size hot tub, small enough to create an intimate atmosphere for you and your spouse but large enough to entertain your closest family and friends.
So, which model is best suited to your lifestyle and relaxation needs?
In this guide, you’ll discover the answer to that exact question and learn about some critical factors influencing your decision when selecting your dream spa!
Let’s dive in and explore six of the best 5-6 person hot tubs on the market!
Hot Tub Buying Guide – 5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Hot Tub
When it comes time to begin exploring the many hot tubs on the market, you’ll want to ensure you’re looking at suitable models.
Knowing which ones are best for you comes down to six influential factors.
1. The Space in Your Backyard
No matter how you envision your future hot tub, your backyard will ultimately determine if it can become a reality.
You’ll want your hot tub to easily fit into your backyard and complement your space, avoiding a cramped look and feel by squeezing in a hot tub that’s too large for your area.
Before searching for a hot tub, consider where you would like it installed in your yard and measure that space.
This will help you narrow down the hot tub size that will best suit your available space.
2. Your Lifestyle and Needs
The next most important aspect is considering what you hope to achieve with your hot tub.
The ways to enjoy a spa are nearly endless, and each model can offer a unique experience that others may not be able to achieve.
For example, if you want to use your hot tub for self-care and struggle with body aches after your workday, a model with a lounger may best suit your needs.
However, if you have young kids and want to use your spa as a perfect year-round waterpark, models with unobstructed interiors and open seating are likely your best option.
3. Must-Have Features
The features in your hot tub can transform your experience each time you step into its warm depths, and each brand and collection will boast different ones.
As you think about your dream spa, consider creating a list of the top features you can’t imagine your spa not having.
This could include aspects like:
- Sound systems
- Adjustable jets
- Therapy seats
- Jetted footwells
- LED lighting
4. Your Budget
Next up: setting your budget!
Hot tubs are undoubtedly an investment, and it’s crucial to know your limits before selecting your model.
The good thing is that hot tubs come with a wide range of price points to fit various budgets. From the brand of your spa to its size and features, plenty of factors influence the price of your spa.
This makes it possible for you to consider the most critical factors to help find a model that best suits your budget.
With that said, it’s more than simply the base cost of the hot tub you have to consider.
You’ll also want to consider the ongoing costs of hot tub ownership when setting your budget, such as maintenance costs, energy usage, and professional service costs down the road.
While we’re on the topic of budget, there’s one thing that many people may not know about.
Like any other investment, many dealers offer financing options, making buying your dream hot tub at a more affordable monthly cost easier!
This can help make planning your budget easier by considering how you can adjust your monthly costs to accommodate the cost of your hot tub.
5. The Dealership You Partner With
Buying a hot tub is unlike any other experience, and you do more than make a singular purchase.
You’re forming a partnership.
The dealership you purchase your hot tub from will support you and your hot tub long after your delivery date, so it’s essential to consider which dealership would be your best fit.
Some things that can help you decide if a hot tub dealer is a good match for your current and future needs may be:
- Online reviews and testimonials
- Expertise and industry knowledge
- Years of experience
- Availability of online resources (such as manuals and warranty information)
- Service options
- Delivery Process
These factors significantly impact how a dealership can support you long-term and meet your unique needs.
For example, if you have a busy schedule and require additional services to help you care for your spa, you’ll want a dealership that offers those services.
