Choosing the Right Whirlpool: What to Consider?
Choosing the Right Hot Tub: What to Consider?
Many individuals who have experienced the joy of a hot tub may be considering getting one for themselves. It’s completely understandable, as the benefits can last for days. A massage pool is the perfect way to relax and unwind throughout the year. It’s ideal for family gatherings, friendly get-togethers, romantic evenings, and can be used both indoors and outdoors, making it a cherished addition to your home. However, selecting the perfect hot tub requires careful consideration.
The ultimate decision should be made with the help of hot tub experts. Nevertheless, it’s always advisable to do some research, form a mental image of what you want, and have specific expectations before making a purchase. In this article, we’ll cover some aspects of the selection process.
Size and Usage of the Hot Tub
The first crucial question to address is how many people will be using the massage pool, how often, and for what purposes. These products have a limited capacity, and although physically more people might fit in, the jet configuration might not comfortably accommodate more than the specified number of users. It’s not enough to rely on online information about size, as there can be variations in size between hot tubs designed for the same number of individuals. Therefore, it’s essential to consider the size and body build of the most frequent users when making a purchase.
It might be worthwhile to try out the pool before buying to better determine your needs. Experience the advantages of our pools and enjoy the benefits of Wellis hot tubs firsthand in our showroom!
It’s also prudent to decide in advance how you plan to use the pool and what style you want it to represent. The next section of this article will help you with this decision as we present the various Wellis hot tub types available.

When deciding on a hot tub, we must consider not only the purchase price but also the maintenance and operating costs. These costs depend on various factors, which we will discuss below. It’s important to note that hot tubs with low initial costs can often lead to higher maintenance expenses. Cheaper products often require more frequent maintenance and can be more costly in the long run. That’s why Wellis hot tubs are crafted from carefully selected materials to ensure a top-notch wellness experience with minimal maintenance costs.
What influences the maintenance costs of a hot tub?
Insulation of the hot tub:
Effective insulation is crucial, as most users heat their pools to 30-32 degrees Celsius in summer and 35-38 degrees Celsius in winter. Good insulation helps retain heat in the pool and reduces heating costs.
Material and construction of the thermal cover:
A high-quality thermal cover is essential for heat retention. A poorly fitting or inferior cover can lead to higher heating costs.
Type and consumption of massage and filter pumps:
Operating these pumps requires energy, and the more they are used, the higher the operating costs of the hot tub. In many pools from our range, we use the energy-efficient circulation motor W-EC, ensuring low consumption.
Additionally, the costs for maintenance and water treatment must be considered to ensure optimal water quality. Using high-quality products and proper application can reduce maintenance needs. Regularly monitoring water quality can also minimize water treatment costs. Our intelligent water analyzer W.I.S. comes into play here, continuously monitoring and dosing added chemicals to maintain consistent water quality. With Wellis hot tubs, you can enjoy a luxurious and cost-effective wellness experience for years to come.
Operating a hot tub does not necessarily require a high time investment from the owner. Manual water treatment typically takes only a few minutes per week, while automatic or semi-automatic systems require even less time. Filter maintenance is also not particularly time-consuming. Cleaning and replacing the filter cartridges usually take 1-2 weeks, depending on usage intensity, and require only a few minutes. When the pool is not in use, it is advisable to cover it, especially when placed outdoors, to minimize dirt ingress. Before use, a quick cleaning is recommended to reduce the amount of debris that enters the system.
For more comprehensive maintenance, such as flushing and cleaning the entire hot tub and descaling the jets, a bit more time is needed. However, these tasks are not difficult and can typically be performed by the pool owner themselves. If needed, you can also seek assistance from our specialists.
Before making a purchase, it is important to decide where you want to place the pool. A hot tub can be placed both indoors and outdoors, but in both cases, there are some things to consider.
If you plan to use the pool indoors, you should consider the possibility of strong condensation. This can be reduced by frequent ventilation of the room or using dehumidifiers. Also, think about how the pool will be brought into the building. Our Wellis specialists can assist you with this, but prior coordination with our colleagues is required.
Many people choose to place their hot tub outdoors, especially during the winter. The colder the weather, the more enjoyable it is to relax in the warm water. When placing the pool outdoors, it is important to ensure that it is connected to the power supply and has a suitable foundation. The massage pool can be placed on a level surface, such as a concrete pad or a terrace. If you want to place the hot tub on a terrace, we recommend consulting a structural engineer, as filled pools can weigh several tons.
Regardless of the location, you will need to drain the pool from time to time, and the draining water, which often amounts to hundreds or even thousands of liters, should be able to be directed accordingly. Additionally, you’ll need sufficient space around the pool for maintenance. The space requirements may vary depending on the model, so this should be discussed in advance, especially if you plan to embed the hot tub in the ground.
An increasing number of people are opting for a hot tub as a haven of relaxation at home, and the range of high-quality hot tub accessories is continually expanding. This accessories contribute to enhancing your hot tub experience, maintaining water cleanliness, and operating your hot tub efficiently.

A heat pump helps your hot tub operate efficiently and save energy. With this accessory, the water temperature can be stabilized, reducing the need for constant refilling or draining of warm water. This not only saves energy but also lowers heating costs.
Hot Tub Steps and Handrail
A high-quality entry and railing system lend your hot tub a stylish appearance while providing safety for users. This accessory is particularly beneficial for elderly or disabled individuals who need easy access to get in and out of the hot tub. The secure steps and handrails reduce the risk of injury while adding a stylish touch.
Using filter cartridges is essential to ensure the purity of the water in your hot tub. This accessory helps eliminate impurities and pathogens from the water, ensuring a fresh and clean water experience. It’s important to check the filter cartridge regularly and replace it within the recommended timeframe. High-quality filter cartridges effectively remove impurities such as leaves, hair, and dirt, thus maintaining the water quality of your hot tub.
Cover Lifter and Thermal Cover
The cover lifter and thermal cover are designed to facilitate hot tub maintenance and use. The cover lifter allows easy lifting and lowering of the hot tub cover, providing convenient access to the massage pool. The thermal cover retains heat, keeping the hot tub’s temperature stable, while also protecting the water from dirt and weather elements.
Hot Tub Chemicals
The right chemicals are essential to keep the water in your hot tub clean and maintain a balanced pH level. Hot tub chemicals effectively prevent the growth of bacteria and algae, ensuring fresh water. However, it’s crucial to use these chemicals in the recommended amounts and proportions to avoid any adverse effects on your hot tub and skin.
Water Purification System
A water purification system makes cleaning your hot tub even more efficient. These systems utilize various technologies such as osmosis or ultrasound to purify and disinfect the water. The water purification system helps reduce the use of chemicals and enhances water quality, allowing you to enjoy your hot tub experience to the fullest.
