What’s the Difference between a Spa, Hot Tub or Jacuzzi?

There are so many different ways in which people refer to spas. In essence, the term ‘spa’ is the all-embracing word that refers to a jetted and heated tub of water. In some places like North America and Scandinavia, spas are referred to as hot tubs as they are forged from timber and lined with a non-contoured plastic or vinyl on the inside. On the other hand, a Jacuzzi is simply a spa but a worldwide recognised brand that has become a catchword.

Tips for buying a spa

The portable spas available from Five Star Spas are generally not a regular purchase. In most cases, they are a once in a lifetime purchase. Therefore, a lot of shoppers get caught like a rabbit in the headlights when trying to get the right Spa. So what does one look for when buying a Spa? For how much? And do you get to ask for a test soak? These are some of the questions Five Star Spas hopes to clear up.. Below are the main things you should think about when you want to purchase your perfect outdoor Spa, Hot Tub or Jacuzzi.

Where and How Will Your Spa be installed?

It is important to decide on where you would want it installed before you even check the catalogue. It is equally important to note how difficult it might be to place it there. Your installation cost could include thing like crane costs if the place of installation would require one, say if you would wish to install the outdoor spa on the balcony of your home.

One thing to that should not worry you when installing our easy to set tub is the weight and the effect it might have on your flooring with time. The weight of a tub should not be worrying. We can assure you that due to their weight distribution, they generally put minimal stress on your flooring after installation!

Portable, in-ground, or self-contained?

Five Star customers are allowed to choose one or more of these kinds depending on the amount of time, work or money one is willing to put into such a project. A portable spa tub is very cost effective in terms of installation costs and can also be moved if you ever want to. In terms of upkeep costs, a self-contained or an in-ground hot tub would cost much less compared to the portable spa. Our inflatable portable spas for sale have an insulated cover, a digital control panel with a few control buttons, and an uncomplicated LED display. This allows one to be able to adjust various settings such as the air jets, the temperature, and the heater timer.

A Choice of Jets

There is always a tendency to assume that hot tubs become better, the more the jets. The brutal truth is that a lot of the cheaper spas stick to a simple setup of 5 to 8 jets and then load the spa with basic air jets which just blow bubbles and provide no therapeutic value.. It can get overwhelming when comparing jets in different spas so knowing what you are looking for is important. Do you want a hydrotherapy spa or just something more social? Most people prefer massages that are more aggressive. Having a variety makes everyone happy in the long run. Having adjustable jets would also be a great option to go for.

The Continuing Costs

Maintenance costs would be focused around consumption of power once a tub is installed. Depending on the hot tub choice, you might want to consider if you’d go for gas or electric heaters. We all know and it goes without saying that gas heaters are more expensive to buy but are quite easier to maintain than the electric ones.

Other than the checklist discussed above, there are other details and ideas that you might want to add on that checklist to avoid much stress. Make sure to check:
