Hot Tub Buying 101


Where To Buy Your Hot Tub

When looking to buy a hot tub in the Greater Los Angeles area, there are a few places you can go to purchase your hot tub: a dealer, a hot tub expo, a home and garden show or county fair, or you can order a hot tub from a big box store. While the low prices of big box stores and hot tub expos may be enticing, all other aspects of the hot tub and buying experience fall flat. While it might seem like you are getting a deal with these hot tubs, you are not which is why we stand by our lowest guaranteed prices on hot tubs that will last and maximize health benefits. This is because the most trusted and popular hot tub brands only sell through their own network of dealers spread around the nation.

The brands you find at hot tub expos and big box stores, are often Chinese knock-off hot tubs, or cheaply constructed brands. The issue with buying these hot tubs is that there is no dealer network available to service these hot tubs, and spare parts for these hot tubs are difficult to acquire let alone install.

Water care is another important quality to be mindful of. Cheaper hot tub brands do not have good filters, or heaters, and usually have not worked out an easy way to routinely keep your spa water in balance. This usually means sticking to old methods of keeping your hot tub water clean that involve more chemicals, and more work from you. 

Dealer Networks

Best-selling brands such as Hot Spring Spas only sell their hot tubs through a certified dealer network so they can ensure their dealers provide exceptional service. This also means there is a nationwide service network that will know all models of their spas inside and out. Dealers hold an inventory of parts, and can quickly order parts they do not have, this means you can rest easy knowing that you will never be abandoned trying to find the correct serial number part from China as many people have to do when they avoid buying from dealers.

Plus, you can always visit our store to get expert advice, pick up supplies or check out the latest models.

Exclusive Features

Hot Spring Spas has purposely designed two of their collections to run with a salt water system called FreshWater. California Home Spas and Patio is Southern California’s salt water experts. When you purchase a Hot Spring Spa hot tub, you will enjoy a one-of-a-kind massage and hydrotherapy system unavailable with other hot tubs. Unlike cheap, fly-by-night hot tub brands, Hot Spring Spas has perfected their models through constant improvement and innovation over time. This has resulted in 100% no-bypass filtration in the Highlife Collection which gives you the cleanest water with longer lasting, more efficient filters. 


When purchasing a hot tub, it will need a flat, solid foundation to sit on, and will usually need to be professionally installed into your home’s 240v wiring. Delivering a hot tub usually consists of a flat bed truck delivering the hot tub, pouring and leveling a solid concrete foundation, and lifting the hot tub into place.

Lifting a hot tub into place can often result in sections of your fence being taken down temporarily to allow for the hot tub to enter your backyard. If your home is in an especially difficult area, a crane will be used to lift the hot tub into place. As you can see, delivering and setting up a hot tub requires a lot of coordination and resources. Going about this yourself can be quite an ordeal, and you may end up with a result you are not happy with. When you buy your spa from a dealer, they will know of the best contractors to hire for the job, saving you time and headache!

Financing Options

Another advantage of buying a hot tub through a dealer, such as California Hot Spas & Patio is access to some of the best financing options available on the market. With financing options, you can make easy payments over time which may let you upgrade to some of the more luxurious options. Be sure to ask one of our hot tub experts today.
