Buying a Jacuzzi: What's Involved?

Buying a Jacuzzi: What's Involved?

Buying a Jacuzzi or hot tub these days isn’t as expensive as it once was. You had to have a dedicated section of your lawn or garden to install the system in the past. It needed year-round maintenance and cleaning. Most people opted to build a decking area for it, which also needed to be maintained. These are all still great options for those who plan on making use of their jacuzzi 24/7/365. For the rest of us, a good alternative is a portable hot tub.

Buying a Jacuzzi: Portable Hot Tubs

Jacuzzi is a brand name for the biggest hot tub manufacturer, and we use this word in the same way we refer to vacuum cleaners as ‘Hoovers’. One popular portable hot tub manufacturer and one we recommend is Lay-Z-Spa. These hot tubs are built to provide all the health benefits and luxury of a permanent installation. But because they are portable, you don’t have to have a dedicated section of your home for them. You won’t have to maintain it regularly unless you decide to keep it outdoors for extended periods.

The Top Choices

The model to choose depends entirely on what you’re after. If you’re looking for something with low cost and not so many frills, the entry-level Lay-Z-Spa Miami is a great option. It is equipped with 120 AirJets to give you some nice bubbles, and the water, as with all of these models, is heated to a comfy 40c.

The Paris AirJet is similar to the Miami, can seat up to six people, and includes a lighting system that helps create the perfect atmosphere. On the upper end of the range is the Lay-Z-Spa Maldives Pro. The Maldives has everything. It can comfortably seat up to seven people, has 180 AirJets and 8 HydroJets – which are water thrusters that deeply massage your muscles, helping you to sink down, relax and unwind. All the newer Lay-Z-Spa models include Freeze Shield™. This system allows you to keep your spa outdoors on colder periods without the worry of cold bursting pipework. The Freeze Shield activates whenever it detects the colder weather, gently heating the water enough to prevent damage while not wasting energy.
