So you’re inspired and want to know more about a hot tub, what’s the next step?

The first step is to go and visit a dealer, a good dealer won’t pressure you into purchasing but will listen to your needs, provide recommendations, allow to you see, touch and experience a number of different hot tubs so you can make an informed choice. They will also be able to answer any questions you have about hot tubs, delivery and installation, and after sales support.

Here’s a handy list of things to consider before and ask when you visit a dealer.
