How To Choose The Best Hot Tub For 4 People?

You may feel overwhelmed by the amount of hot tubs for sale on the market, and you're not sure where to begin. Well, the best 4 person hot tub may not necessarily be the cheapest option, but it will most likely be the best value in the long-run, as it will survive for many years, and provide numerous benefits for you and your family. Luxury hot tubs with cutting-edge hydrotherapy technology can improve your physical and mental health. These types of hot tubs allow you to create your very own home spa, eliminating the hassle of going to hotels or wellness centers. In order to choose the best 4 person spa, you should take into consideration seating, jets and budget.

Seating

Seating is an important factor to consider, when you're looking to buy the best 4 person spa for your home. You will need at least four seats, which provide plenty of space for each bather to completely relax. The seats should be ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and support. You don’t want to feel cramped or squashed in your tub, so you should check the hot tub’s interior dimensions to make sure it is spacious enough. If you like to host guests, or you have a very big outdoor or indoor space, you can also consider a 5 or 6 seater hot tub for some extra room. You will need to carefully measure your space to make sure you select the hot tub with the right dimensions for your area.

Jets

The best 4 person hot tubs should feature a large amount of jets, allowing four bathers to benefit from a deep therapeutic hydromassage. Jets should also be adjustable, so individuals can reposition and choose the best pressure and intensity to ensure the best possible wellness treatment. Aquatica strategically places jets in clusters to match the bathers' contour and target the best parts of the body to help relieve stress, tension and pain. A well-designed hot tub features a large amount of hydromassage jets to massage the entire back, and plenty of air massage nozzles to focus on the legs.

Budget

There are many different types of hot tubs on the market to suit your budget and personal needs. In general, the cost of a spa depends on a few factors, including the design, material and number of jets. Hot tubs are a long-term investment, so it is important to choose a long-lasting tub made of high-quality materials. This will save you a lot of time, energy and money on repairs in the long-run. When you're looking for the best 4 person spa, you should have an idea of your overall budget, as you will need to take into consideration other potential costs such as hot tub installation, accessories and extra features.

Types Of Hot Tubs

Portable

Freestanding spas made from premium materials are the best type of portable 4 person hot tubs for an exclusive outdoor or indoor space. These types of spas are extremely durable and weather resistant. A freestanding spa with an attractive cabinet, which complements your outdoor space can enhance the appearance and value of your property. If you move, you can take your hot tub with you, or you can ask an installation expert to move the tub to another location on your property. Most portable hot tubs on the market are not suitable for luxury homes, as they do not feature a beautiful appearance. For example, inflatable hot tubs are considered to be one of the cheapest 4 person hot tubs, and they can be easily moved and stored. The problem with inflatable hot tubs is that they do not enhance your property's value or overall aesthetics, making them unsuitable for high-end homes. Inflatable hot tubs are made to provide families with some entertainment a few times a year, but these types of portable hot tubs usually do not provide a therapeutic wellness treatment, and are not made for intensive use. In general, inflatable products are not considered to be luxurious or durable.

In-Ground

Inground spas are permanent fixtures, which are built into the ground like a swimming pool. These types of spas can be fully submerged into the ground or partially exposed above the ground. Luxury homes and boutique hotels with inground spas stand out from the crowd, as built-in hot tubs provide the wow-factor, thanks to their stunning appearance. Similar to a swimming pool, inground hot tubs are considered to enhance the value of a property, as they improve the overall appearance of the outdoor space, providing an element of pure luxury. Inground hot tubs can transform an outdoor or indoor area into an exclusive spa sanctuary, and are a great alternative to swimming pools, as they can be used anytime of the year. Accessibility is another benefit of in-ground tubs, making them a great option for the elderly or PRM (people with restricted mobility).

Material

Before buying a 4 person hot tub, it is important to check the material of the tub shell, structure, exterior and spa parts. The majority of hot tub shells on the market are manufactured from vinyl, rotomolded plastic or acrylic. These types of materials are considered to be the cheapest options for 4 person hot tubs, but they are not always the best material for long-term outdoor use. Whichever material you choose, it is important to make sure it is made of the highest-quality, specifically designed for both outdoor and indoor use, and comes from a reliable manufacturer. Let’s take a look at some of the best materials for luxury hot tubs.

Fiberglass Composite

Fiberglass is considered to be one of the best light-weight materials for hot tubs. Some fiberglass materials on the market are not particularly suitable for outdoor use, as they are not extremely durable and can fade or crack. Aquatica solved this problem by developing a special fiberglass composite specifically for outdoor use. In order to do this, Aquatica borrowed technology from the yacht building industry, which allowed Aquatica® to create some of the most luxurious and long-lasting hot tubs on the market.

DurateX™ is Aquatica’s premium in-house developed material. This light-weight fiberglass composite is extremely durable, as it is resistant against UV, blush and chemicals, including bromine and chlorine water. It is also capable of withstanding air and water temperature variations. DurateX™ is sustainable, easy to clean, and offers excellent thermal insulation. This is the reason Aquatica uses this material for the shell and exterior cabinets for some of its most popular outdoor hot tubs.

Acrylic

Also known as Plexiglass, Acrylic is a popular material for manufacturing outdoor and indoor tubs. There are many different types of acrylic hot tubs on the market, so it is extremely important to choose a hot tub made of only high-quality acrylic. Aquatica uses premium quality acrylic sheets from Lucite International UK, one of the world’s most famous manufacturers of acrylic. This is a great material for outdoor hot tub shells, as it is sturdy, long-lasting, and resistant against scratches, mechanical stress, and wear and tear. Aquatica uses a special AquaHygiene™ technology, which protects the hot tub shell against the growth of bacteria. Aquatica acrylic hot tub shells also feature thick walls for heat insulation, and a smooth texture, which is warm and pleasant to touch.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is one of the best material options for the hot tub structure and hydromassage jets. Aquatica’s engineers chose stainless steel framing over thermally treated wood, composite, or aluminum framing, as it ensures long-term durability, even when used on a daily basis. The stainless-steel structure distributes and supports the hot tub’s weight, and will survive for many years, in any temperature, even under humid conditions. Aquatica spas come with a structural warranty of up to 25 years.

Plastic

If you're searching for a 4 person hot tub for your yacht or sea-side property, then a moisture-resistant plastic is a good material choice for the tub’s exterior. It is important to choose a high-quality and durable plastic, which is specifically suitable for installing near the sea. Aquatica uses Maridur , a premium German-made material for some of its freestanding hot tubs cabinets, as it provides excellent outdoor protection all year-round. Designed for marine applications, it features high-edge stability that is both swell free and rot free. Maridur is a low-maintenance material, which is easy to clean and does not gather dust or dirt. It can also be painted in any color to match the customer's design vision.

Wood

Wooden hot tubs offer a traditional and authentic appeal. If you would like to buy a 4 person hot tub for the countryside, then a wooden hot tub is the perfect choice. Hot tubs made completely from wood generally require a lot of maintenance, and are prone to cracking and leakage. If water is left inside the tub, it can experience decay and fungus growth. A hot tub combining a wooden cabinet with a durable steel structure and fiberglass shell is an excellent alternative. Aquatica uses a special thermally treated wood to carefully craft its wooden hot tubs. Thermory ash panels are durable, rot-resistant, knot-free, suitable for all weather conditions, and sourced from sustainable forests. The wood is modified using only steam, making sure it is chemical-free and non-toxic, so it doesn't need to be handled as hazardous waste.

Indoor vs. Outdoor Use

If you’re unsure whether you want to install the hot tub inside or outside, then in order to have more flexibility you should check the design to make sure the 4 person hot tub can be used both indoors and outdoors. It is very important to check whether you have enough space to install a hot tub inside your home, and if a hot tub can fit through your property's entrances. Remember, if you are installing a hot tub inside, then you should also install a good ventilation system.

Installing a hot tub indoors can give you more privacy, and you can use it anytime, even if it rains. There is also the option to place your hot tub in an outdoor bathroom, under a gazebo or pergola to protect you from the rain, snow or direct sunlight. A gazebo is traditionally a freestanding structure, featuring an octagonal form and a covered roof, while a pergola features a cross beam and open lattice structure.

Remember These Tips Before Buying A Hot Tub

  • Check if your flooring can support the weight and temperature of the spa
  • Make sure the hot tub can be used in all weather conditions
  • Find out the amount of water it will need, and drainage and filling options
  • Do not fill above the waterline, to prevent the tub from overflowing
