How Many Years Will My New Hot Tub Last?

If you’re in the market for a new hot tub, it can be tempting to search for the lowest price and call it a day. However, while everyone adores a good bargain, it’s important to consider how long your personal spa will last. Many so-called “bargain brand” options will only last for 2 years or less, so when you take a hard look at the numbers, they actually end up costing more per year than the top-quality ones. Plus, poorly made spas are more likely to need frequent repairs, which means operating costs can snowball quickly. Let’s discuss the typical lifespan of our spas and some important factors that can affect them.


Quality Comes First

 At Hot Spring Spas of Kansas City, quality is our number one priority and we will never compromise for second best. That’s why we only carry Hot Spring® and Freeflow® brand hot tub models. They offer expert design, superior craftsmanship, and first-rate materials and finishes, that will ensure your spa lasts for many years to come. When combined with regular maintenance and cleanings, your spa is likely to last 20 years or more.


Factors Affecting Longevity

We offer a wide variety of hot tub models to suit every budget, so deciding which one is right for you, it’s vital to consider the lifespan difference between the premier and budget options. For instance, the Grandee® 7 Person Hot Tub, expertly crafted by Hot Spring® and featuring 43 targeted massage jets, will most likely outlast the Mini ™ 2 Person Hot Tub by a couple of years. If you’re willing to make a larger upfront investment in exchange for a spa that will chug along for multiple decades, you’ll want to explore our luxury models, such as the Grandee®, Prism ™, or Pulse®. If budget is more of a concern right now and you don’t mind replacing your hot tub after 10 years, you can go ahead and choose one of the less expensive models.


A major aspect of keeping your hot tub operational and enjoyable for the whole family is ensuring that you perform regular maintenance and cleanings. When you first purchase your spa, you’ll be given an owner’s manual detailing the level of care your model will require, and we highly recommend becoming familiar with it. Regardless of the model you decide to purchase, it’s important to keep the power supply connected at all times, clean the jets and filters on a regular basis, invest in a well-made cover, and rinse off before jumping in. These simple steps will help ensure everything stays in tip-top shape for many, many years.
