Comfort, relief and fun are emotional reasons for craving your own personal hot tub. Alone, they might not convince an analytical thinker who wants details about energy usage and expense, the amount of work involved and overall affordability. We've got both the emotional and rational reasons to own a Hot Spring® spa covered here to help you decide.

As Hot Spring owners know, we are the experts at designing, building and delivering the most thorough, comprehensive and quality spa product in the world.

Here are 38 reasons to own a Hot Spring spa


1. Create romance

No phones, but so much to say. No screens, but a whole world to watch. Warm water and beautiful natural scenery makes decompressing and connecting so much better!

2. Fun with friends

30 years ago, Americans reported three close friends. Today, that number is just two. Work and family obligations make it tough to find the time to get together with friends. But who can turn down the offer of a hot tub soak?

3. Fun with family

Kids love playing in the hot tub with parents, siblings and friends. The hot tub also gives grandparents something fun to do when they stop by for a visit.

4. Quality time with teens

Once kids hit the teen years, getting them to open up becomes more difficult. “Come sit in the hot tub with me” often gets a positive response.

5. Time together with the people who matter

Connecting with extended family and close friends protects physical and mental health. Conversation offers emotional support and ideas for solving problems. We are social animals and connecting regularly is critical to our well-being.

6. Time outdoors

Seeing, smelling, touching and hearing our natural environment provides wellness and emotional benefits we can't get anywhere else.

7. Time to unplug

Taking time to reflect on feelings and thoughts in the moment makes us more productive, creative, happy and pleasant to be around. Unplugging should be a part of everyone's day!

8. An enriched life

A well-lived life doesn't mean you are always busy. It means living by your values and priorities. Moments in the hot tub can help anyone take inventory of their choices. After all, as Plato said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.”

9. Pamper yourself

You may be surprised at how much a little relaxation improves your mood and outlook.

10. Easy maintenance

You bought a spa to relax, not work harder! With proper care, spa maintenance is a breeze. We even developed the FreshWater® Salt System so owners can cut maintenance down to as little effort as monthly tests and annual water changes.

11. Entertainment systems

How about some jazz? The Hot Spring entertainment systems let you stream music live or access your playlist from a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. If it's football that relaxes you or Game of Thrones, television options make for great solo rejuvenation or a neighborhood soak-in.


12. Energy efficient

All Hot Spring hot tubs are California Energy Commission (CEC) certified, and we've gone above and beyond these standards. Read about the nine ways we keep your spa insulated and running smoothly, and calculate your own monthly energy costs.

13. Better jets

Moto-Massage® jets send two powerful streams of water sweeping up and down your back. Wish you had a real masseuse? We have that, too. Rotary Precision® jets mimic the masseuse's fingertips as the rotating nozzles focus on delicate areas like your wrists. We engineered our customers' demands into each jet.

Better Health

23. Arthritis relief

Time in the hot tub increases the spaces between joints, allowing healing, oxygen-rich blood to flow into painful areas. Buoyancy also relieves pressure on joints.

24. Back pain relief

As with arthritis relief, the buoyancy and warm water of the hot tub allows the vertebrae in the back the space needed to permit increased, healing blood flow.

25. Better athletic recovery

Athletes overwork their muscles and owe their muscles the healing that hydrotherapy provides. Warm water improves circulation, allowing blood to flow further into veins and capillaries, removing the lactic acid causing pain. Jets help muscle fibers relax and heal.

26. Better mobility and flexibility

Warm water relaxes muscles and helps make tendons and ligaments more pliable. Move around in the spa to enjoy the movements you might not be able to do comfortably on dry land: touching your toes, lifting your leg higher, turning your back further.

27. Improve circulation

Hot water dilates veins and capillaries so that more blood can flow to more parts of the body. The blood removes toxins and adds nutrients to every cell. This process helps us feel amazing overall. Water buoyancy and pressure helps the heart beat more powerfully and consistently. This pushes blood to every inch of our bodies.

28. Great for skin

Regular hot tub use can make your skin glow. Improved circulation brings blood up to the face so it can replenish skin cells more efficiently.

29. Improved sleep

Increased circulation that results from the warm water triggers our body's relaxation response, a hormonal process. Further, being outside at night, away from light-emitting screens, signals to the body that it's time to sleep.

30. Hypertension relief

A hot tub soak lowers blood pressure, relieving the effects of hypertension to some extent. Blood pressure drops because the blood vessels dilate, allowing blood to flow further.

31. Umbrella

32. Towel tree

Keep towels up and away from the ground, within easy reach.

33. Side rail

A handrail makes entering and exiting the spa simple and safe. A battery powered LED light ensures a steady step.

Luxurious Upgrades

35. Wireless remote
