How to Know When it’s Time to Upgrade to a New Hot Tub

upgrade to a new hot tub

When you invest in a hot tub, you expect it to last decades, if not a lifetime. But, as the years go by, you start to wonder what it would be like to have a newer, fancier hot tub. Is it time for an upgrade? It’s different for everyone. But we can help you figure out how to know when it’s time to upgrade to a new hot tub.

How old is your hot tub?

Like we said, hot tubs can last for decades. But just because your hot tub can last that long, doesn’t mean you want it forever. With the passing years come new fun features for hot tubs, while you may be noticing that your older hot tub needs repairs on a pretty regular basis. 

If your hot tub is older, there is absolutely nothing wrong with keeping it as long as you’re happy with it. But, if you’re putting money into repairing your hot tub while looking longingly at newer models, it may be time for an upgrade.

Does your hot tub have the features you want?

One of the most important aspects of a hot tub is the features it has. Of course, the jets are of the most importance, but newer hot tubs come with other fun features, like:

With all of these new features come more benefits to hot tub ownership, and more reasons to upgrade to a new hot tub. 

Are you using your hot tub?

No matter what purchase we make, we’re bound to get bored with it eventually. If you’ve had your hot tub for a decade or two, think about how often you’re using it now compared to when you first got it. Are you using it at all, or are you just bored with it? Why are you bored with it? Is it not providing the benefits to you that it once was?

Sometimes, we just need to switch things up in life. We get bored with our old phone or TV, and we get new ones. While hot tubs are a larger investment than those items, after a while, you definitely deserve to switch things up just because you want to. After all, if you’re not using it, then why even have it?
