Across the globe, people are looking for a new way to have fun, de-stress, and stay active at home. As a result, demand for backyard items like pools, hot tubs, and trampolines is headed for the stratosphere. Manufacturers have quickly run out of these items and are struggling to fill new orders because of reduced factory capacity and supply chain issues. Bottom line - wait time for popular outdoor items is now being measured in months - rather than weeks.

Over the last few months, Hot Spring® Spa dealers have also been faced with unprecedented demand for new spas. We get it! We can’t think of a better way to adapt to the “new normal” than by making an invigorating dip part of your daily routine. Now, more than ever, shoppers are craving the one-of-a-kind massage, sparkling clean water, and energy saving features Hot Spring spas are known for.

Right now, production teams at our factories are working hard to make up for the period of time when our factories were closed to comply with government mandates. While our factories must continue to operate at reduced capacity to keep employees safe and comply with government regulations, we’re thankful that production has resumed, and we’re sending out multiple shipments each day.

How Long is the Wait?

Your local dealer is the best person to ask. The time span between placing your order and receiving your spa depends on when you purchased your spa, which spa you purchased and where it is being built. Our production teams are in regular contact with our independent network of Hot Spring Spa dealers, so dealers are equipped to answer shoppers' questions and keep customers who are waiting for their spas informed.

    A Hot Spring spa is an investment in wellness. It doesn’t matter if your exercise routine takes place at home, in the gym, or outdoors - your hot tub will be there to help warm and loosen your muscles before exercise, and help them relax and stimulate healing post-workout. Hydrotherapy is also helpful in relieving aches and pains, and may even provide relief for arthritis symptoms.

A warm soak helps loosen muscles before exercise, and stimulates healing after your workout.

Around the world, people are reprioritizing what’s important. In this short video, our team member and avid hot-tubber Scott Iverson talks about some of the very special benefits that make a Hot Spring spa worth waiting for.
