Spas and Hot Tubs are often associated with warm water treatment and are designed to aid in relaxation and hydrotherapy.
So what’s the difference between the two?
- Both a spa and hot tub can be portable or can be built in-ground.
- Hot tubs are usually made from wood while most portable spas are made of acrylic or concrete (if in-ground).
- Hot tubs are usually round in shape while spas can come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Consider the following 10 key issues before purchasing a unit:
- Do you want a spa or a hot tub?
- How many people do you need seating for?

- How many massaging jets would you like?
- Would you like your unit to be indoors or outdoors?
- Do you want a unit that is portable or in-ground?
- Will your homeowners’ insurance be affected?
- Are there any zoning restrictions?
- Do you want your unit to have a radio/CD player, speakers and/or remote control?
- Which shape and color work best for your home?
Portable Spas and Hot Tubs
In-Ground Spas and Hot Tubs
An indoor spa or hot tub will provide you with the perfect climate all year long as well as granting you the comfort and privacy of your own home. In turn, you may find that you use your spa or hot tub more often. The downside is that you will need to properly vent and dehumidify the room to keep excess moisture from causing water problems in your home. Therefore you may consider building a separate waterproof hot tub room.
Enjoy relaxing in your very own spa or hot tub!
