How Long Do Hot Spring Spas Last?

How Long Do Hot Spring Spas Last?

A Hot Spring® Hot Tub is an excellent investment for any home, providing a relaxing and therapeutic experience for you and your family. However, as with any investment, it’s important to understand how long you can expect it to last. Hot Spring Spas are known for their longevity and can last as long as 20+ years with proper care. Here are a few of the factors that determine the lifespan of a hot tub and how to get the most out of your Hot Spring Hot Tub. 

Hot Tub Quality Matters

One of the most important factors in determining the lifespan of a hot tub is the quality of the spa itself. A high-quality hot tub brand like Hot Spring Spas gives you the most for your money with years of use. These high-quality spas are built to last, using durable materials and construction methods that can withstand the test of time. These features include a no-bypass filtration system, FiberCor® Insulation that is four times greater than most spas, and a durable polymer structure that will never rot or rust. 

Hot Spring Spas are a leader in quality, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Their multi-year hot tub warranties speak for themselves and give you peace of mind about the longevity of your Hot Spring Hot Tub. 

Be Consistent with Hot Tub Care

Another important factor in determining the lifespan of your hot tub is the way it is maintained. Proper hot tub maintenance can help to extend the life of your spa, while neglect or inadequate care can do just the opposite. Hot tub care includes regularly balancing the chemical, shocking the water as needed, draining and refilling the water three to four times a year, and regularly caring for the hot tub filters. 

Hot Spring Spas make hot tub care simple and straightforward! The FreshWater® Salt System uses fewer chemicals while keeping hot tub water cleaner for longer. This water cleaning system uses salt to create chlorine that will keep the water clean, clear, and safe for you to use.  

Don’t Forget Your Hot Tub Cover

Hot Spring Hot Tubs come with durable, marine-grade vinyl hot tub covers. These covers serve many roles including protecting your hot tub from foreign debris, increasing the energy efficiency of your spa, and keeping your hot tub safe and secure from children and pets.

Being diligent to put your hot tub cover on after each use can increase the lifespan of your spa. By keeping out debris, the cover prevents your filters and pumps from extra strain. Additionally, its energy-efficient capabilities keep the heat in so, preventing further work for the heating elements. Plus, the cover protects your Hot Spring Hot Tub from UV damage and other harsh weather. 

If your hot tub cover becomes cracked, waterlogged, or damaged in other ways, we recommend you replace it as soon as possible to protect your hot tub. Contact us about hot tub cover replacements.
