Frequently Asked Questions

We know you want to own a hot tub. But we also know that you have a lot of questions! Owning a hot tub is a daunting task. We'll try to make it as easy as possible for you. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you get started:

What kind of requirements should I consider regarding installation?

Your hot tub must be placed on a reinforced cement pad or wood deck capable of supporting 100 lbs per square foot. Be sure to check your local codes and after installation, watch for any settling or erosion that could move the hot tub out of level.

Are spas hard to take care of?

No, not at all. Spa Brokers spas virtually maintain themselves. There is some minor maintenance needed, but you’ll spend far more time enjoying your spa than maintaining it.

How much does it cost to run a spa?

That depends slightly on the model, climate, and usage. You can estimate the cost to run at $10 to $30 per month on average. The low operational costs are due to the extra steps Spa Brokers take to ensure the highest quality, lowest maintenance, and most efficient spa on the market. The spas we sell are all well-insulated. The adjustable straps and linear heat seal ensure the cover is sealed and energy efficient. The high-output, low-amperage industrial-duty pumps run cool and work smoothly to keep operational costs to a minimum.

I've heard of ozonators to reduce maintenance. Do they work?

Spa Brokers offers a water management system and a solid-state ozonator. Ozone is a natural and easy way to maintain your water and reduce the amount of chemicals necessary to maintain sparkling clean water. Ozone burns up organics in your water thousands of times faster than sanitizer alone.

What is the horsepower of your pumps?

Spa Brokers does not measure the pump performance in horsepower. The true measure of a pump is in GPM or gallons per minute. Many consumers are misled by inaccurate or overrated pump performance. Don’t be fooled by the concept that bigger is better. The truth is bigger might be worse. The only way to be certain whether a pump’s performance is adequate for your needs is to get in and test soak.

What is the maximum temperature of a spa?

The maximum set temperature for any hot tub sold in the United States and Canada is 104°F. This has a variance of 3°F. This means the hot tub cannot be set above 104°F but the temperature can fluctuate to as high as 107°F

Should I buy a spa on the internet?
