The best way to complete any backyard poolscape is to add a hot tub or a spa. What many of those who are new to the pool and spa industry may not realize is that there are a number of different units available, which each comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
Your Spa and Hot Tub Options in the Phoenix Valley
Depending on your budget, the placement of your hot tub and spa, as well as a variety of other factors, one type of hot tub may suit you better than the next.
The three most popular spa and hot tub options are:
- Above ground hot tubs
- Inground gunite hot tubs/spas
- Inground fiberglass hot tubs/spas
Why Consider an Above Ground Hot Tub
Above ground hot tubs are typically less expensive, and they can be placed almost anywhere in your backyard. They require less maintenance than an inground hot tub or spa, and they typically cost less to run each month.
An above ground hot tub comes with 30 to 70 jets, which may or may not be enough for you. The ergonomic seating of some spas and hot tubs may not suit your body type, and some consider above ground hot tubs and spas to be less attractive than the other two inground varieties.
Why Choose an Inground Gunite Hot Tub or Spa
Inground hot tubs and spas have much more aesthetic potential than above ground and fiberglass spas as they can be completely customizable. Whether you’re looking for a specific design that complements your poolscape, certain seating options, a specific number of jets, and more, a custom inground spa would be the right choice for you.
These spas do come with a higher price tag than an above ground hot tub, but if achieving your creative vision is a must, then a custom inground spa is the right choice for you.
Why Choose an Inground Fiberglass Spa
We also offer custom inground fiberglass spas from our parent company, Spas by Design. While this also require a higher investment than your standard above ground spa, they require little maintenance in the long run thanks to their non-porous surface. Keep in mind that these spas must also be preheated, and they often come with a shorter warranty for both parts and labor.
One of the major perks of an inground fiberglass spa is you choose the model you prefer, which features all of the bells and whistles you want, and then we sink it into the ground with a customizable surround with a finished height of 18 to 20 inches, making entry and exit extremely easy.
