Choosing the Perfect Hot Tub: Key Considerations

Choosing the Perfect Hot Tub: Key Considerations

For many individuals who have experienced the joy of a hot tub, the idea of owning one themselves is enticing. The benefits of a massage pool can last for days, offering the perfect way to relax and unwind throughout the year. Hot tubs are great for family gatherings, friendly get-togethers, and romantic evenings, and they can be enjoyed both indoors and outdoors, making them a cherished addition to any home. However, finding the right hot tub requires careful consideration.

While the ultimate decision should be made with the guidance of hot tub experts, it’s essential to conduct some research, envision your needs, and establish 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

A crucial question to address is how many people will be using the massage pool, how frequently, and for what purposes. Hot tubs have limited capacities, and while more people might physically fit in, the jet configuration might not comfortably accommodate more than the specified number of users. Relying solely on online information about size might not be sufficient, as there can be variations in size between hot tubs designed for the same number of individuals. Therefore, it’s important to consider the size and body build of the most frequent users when making a purchase.

It’s advisable to try out the pool before buying to better determine your needs. You can experience the advantages of our pools and enjoy the benefits of Wellis hot tubs firsthand in our showroom!

It’s also wise to decide in advance how you plan to use the pool and the style you want it to represent. The following section will help you with this decision as we present the various Wellis hot tub types available.

Considerations Regarding Hot Tub Costs

When choosing a hot tub, it’s essential to consider not only the initial purchase price but also the ongoing maintenance and operating costs. These costs are influenced by various factors, which we will discuss below. It’s crucial to be aware that hot tubs with low initial costs may lead to higher maintenance expenses. Cheaper products often require more frequent maintenance, making them more costly in the long run. This is why Wellis hot tubs are meticulously crafted from carefully selected materials to ensure a top-notch wellness experience with minimal maintenance costs.

Factors Influencing Hot Tub Maintenance Costs:

  • Insulation of the Hot Tub:

    Effective insulation is paramount since 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, reducing 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 utilize the energy-efficient circulation motor W-EC, ensuring low consumption.

The costs for maintenance and water treatment must also be considered to ensure optimal water quality. With high-quality products and proper application, typically, less maintenance is required. Regularly monitoring water quality can minimize water treatment costs. This is where the intelligent water analyzer W.I.S. comes into play, continuously monitoring and dosing the added chemicals to maintain a consistent water quality.

Easy Maintenance

Operating a hot tub doesn’t require a significant 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, with cleaning and replacing filter cartridges typically taking only 1-2 weeks, depending on usage intensity. Covering the pool when not in use, especially if placed outdoors, helps minimize dirt ingress, and a quick cleaning before use further reduces debris entering 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 usually be performed by the pool owner. If needed, our specialists can also provide assistance.

Placement Considerations

Before making a purchase, it’s important to decide where you want to place the pool, be it indoors or outdoors. Here are some factors to consider:


For indoor use, consider the possibility of strong condensation. This can be reduced by frequent ventilation or using dehumidifiers. Also, think about how the pool will be brought into the building, and our Wellis specialists can assist you with this.


Many people choose to place their hot tub outdoors, especially during winter for the enjoyable experience of relaxing in warm water amidst colder weather. When placing the pool outdoors, ensure it is connected to the power supply and has a suitable foundation. The pool can be placed on a level surface, such as a concrete pad or terrace. If placing it on a terrace, consulting a structural engineer is recommended, 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, often amounting to hundreds or even thousands of liters, should be directed accordingly. Additionally, ensure sufficient space around the pool for maintenance. The space requirements may vary depending on the model, so discuss this in advance, especially if embedding the hot tub in the ground.

Enhancing Your Hot Tub Experience: High-Quality Accessories

As an increasing number of people choose hot tubs as their haven of relaxation at home, the range of high-quality hot tub accessories continues to expand. These accessories play a crucial role in enhancing your hot tub experience, maintaining water cleanliness, and operating your hot tub efficiently.

Aromatherapy Accessories

Aromatherapy accessories allow you to infuse your hot tub with your preferred essential oils. Different scents can create calming and relaxing effects, making your bathing experience even more enjoyable. Explore premium aromatherapy sets specifically designed for hot tubs!

Heat Pump

A heat pump is an essential accessory that 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 not only lend your hot tub a stylish appearance but also provide 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.

Filter Cartridge

Using filter cartridges is vital 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, 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 fully enjoy your hot tub experience.
