If you have been dreaming of your own spa where you can relax and reward yourself or where you can socialize with friends and family, at any given time or day, there are several factors which you must first consider before deciding.

  • Before going online to place an order or checking your local home store for their option, ask yourself the most important question first, what is it you want or need? The answers to this will determine the elements or functions of the outdoor spa you will get. You may be looking for a spa that can give you remedial massage to recover from a sports injury or because of your current health issues. You may want to purchase a spa that will make your outdoor yard look better and more appealing. There are people that wanted a spa solely because it can be a great social space for family and friends to come together and bond. After which you have to consider whether you want a portable spa, a prefabricated or a built-in one that is made of concrete.
  • It is important to consider the spa safety as well. Do your research regarding pool regulations that govern outdoor spas such as covers, placement, access gates, ledges and barrier fencing. If you are going to choose a spa that needs to be installed, building permit is required. Adding a safety barrier and water into the spa should only be done once it has been approved as safe and follows the regulation.
  • Outdoor spas come in different sizes but remember that the phrase “the bigger, the better” is not always applicable. Consider the number of people that will use it. Refrain from buying a big tub if you intend to use it as a couple because this will mean high maintenance cost, not the mention the running and heating up which cost money.
  • Outdoor spas should be positioned in a way that you will be able to enjoy what you are looking and the surrounding for a long time. It should not be placed in a corner but rather close to where you are always entertaining in order for it to be accessible.
