We’ve experienced some gorgeous weather in the UK so far this year (for once!), and one of the most popular things that are popping up as a consequence of this is people installing hot tubs into their gardens. After all, once the sun’s gone down, what better way to spend the night than in your own hot tub sipping a glass of wine? So should you install one? We’re going to give you all the details that you need to know before you buy.
Hot tubs come in lots of different styles and sizes, and that’s why you need to work out which will work best for you and your needs. Do you want one which has mood lighting? Do you want one which has a built in radio system? Do you want one with special jets? How many people will be using it at one time? We’d suggest that you do your research before you buy. We’d also suggest that you buy one from a well-known brand. Remember, it might cost you more initially, but it’s likely to cost you less in the long term.
Decide how you’re going to install it. Sometimes it’s possible to do it yourself, but if the design and set up is more complicated, then it might cost you a fair amount to get the job done.
Be aware that a hot tub can be expensive to run. Figures show that it could cost up to around £40 a month because of cleaning and maintaining costs. However, it might cost less than this depending on how often you use it, but it’s always best to overestimate! After all, who knows how often your friends and family will want to come round and use it once they know you’ve got one!
Keep in mind that you will need to regularly clean the hot tub. This can be quite time-consuming, and as we just mentioned, also expensive.
Think about where you’re going to put the hot tub. Do you actually have room for it? We’d suggest putting it as near to the back doors as possible, as this means that you can easily get in and out without having to trudge across the entire garden. It’s also worth remembering that you’re going to have to get it into your garden, so make sure you have enough room for access!
It might seem like there’s a lot to think about, but having a hot tub in your garden can be really rewarding! Have you got a hot tub installed in your garden? Let us know about your experience!
