The Pros and Cons of an Inground Hot Tub
An influx of leisure time is spent at home in 2021, leaves families wondering what they could do to make being at home more exciting. An inground hot tub is a great way to revitalize your backyard, making it more enjoyable and personalized. However, buying a hot tub is a big decision, and there are many options and factors to consider. Even if you've had a hot tub on your radar for a long time, you may find yourself on the fence, so how do you know if a hot tub is right for you?
A "pros and cons" list, of course!
We've put together a quick list of pros and cons to help you determine whether an inground hot tub is a good decision for your home.
Pro: Elevate Your Landscape
Installing a hot tub in ground enhances backyard landscaping. The extra element can complete your space that is fun to both look at and use. When you first visit our online hot tub store or an in-person showroom, above-ground hot tubs will likely strike as more affordable. Still, despite a variance, above-ground hot tubs don't offer the same aesthetic appeal as a hot tub embedded directly into the ground, nor does it include the same design elements that create a more vivid and dynamic scene. An inground hot tub can be framed with stones, adjacent firepits, bars, gardens and more, all of which can take your backyard to the next level.
Once a hot tub is installed directly in ground, it's essentially there for good which can sometimes deter people, causing them to abandon their hot tub dreams, or they will sometimes opt for an above-ground hot tub that could be moved or repositioned.
The good news is the professionals at Seaways Pools & Hot Tubs have decades of expertise which they will use to advise the best placement for your hot tub according to your property and current landscaping. This way, you will have the ideal setup right off the bat. Should you decide to sell your home, an inground hot tub will actually increase your property value.
The word itself is enough to induce stress, but like pools, hot tubs require regular maintenance to keep them clean, safe, and hazard-free. It can be a nuisance to schedule and pay for maintenance between finding a service you trust and choosing convenient times.
Online, at Seaway Pool's hot tub store, you can find affordable tools, chemicals, and test strips so you can easily manage your hot tub's day-to-day care independently.
