COST OF A HOT TUB
One of the first questions you might have if you’re looking for a hot tub is, “How much does a hot tub cost?” The answer is that it is debatable. The cost of a hot tub is hardly a trade secret. The main reason they aren’t immediately visible is that costs vary greatly depending on a variety of circumstances. We’ll go over those hot tub price variables here, as well as the normal price ranges you’ll see while searching for your own spa.
A brand new hot tub can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $16,000 or more. In principle, the further you go up the price scale, the more fun you’ll receive out of your hot tub in the long run. However, the spa’s initial cost is only one factor to consider. When deciding which hot tub offers the best value for money, consider the ongoing costs of ownership, how often you expect to use your hot tub, and how long you want your hot tub to survive.
