Hot Tubs

The concept of plunge pools has proven popular with homeowners across Australia and here in Sydney it’s no exception. These compact pools are a great way to cool off in summer, designed for jumping into to quickly lower body temperature, hence the name. These cold pools are also perfect for cool-downs after a workout, or even cold water therapy. 

While great for quickly cooling off, they do have limits when it comes to functionality. Until now—introducing Hot Spring® hot tubs with the innovative CoolZone System. The CoolZone System works by lowering the temperature of the spa water to as low as 15°C, allowing you to experience a new world of versatility, health and wellness, and fun.

What Should I Look for When Buying a Hot Tub

First, you should determine the size that best suits your needs. The best way to do this is by seating capacity—you’ll probably already know how many people are likely to be using the spa at a time.  

Next, consider the features and amenities that you’re most interested in, such as hydrotherapy jets our patent Moto-Massage™ for an enhanced back massage and SilentFlo™ circulation for the ultimate ownership experience.

It’s also important to factor in energy efficiency, ease of installation and simple maintenance requirements. With Hot Springs Spas, you can rest easy knowing you’re choosing a brand that prioritises these among other innovations to make your spa ownership experience the absolute best.

How much does a hot tub cost to run?

The Hot Spring Spas Energy Calculator can tell you exactly that!

Hot tub running costs come down to one major factor: insulation. A bargain hot tub rarely stays a bargain for long, as a lack of insulation means inefficient heat retention, resulting in surprisingly high running costs – as much as $2,000 or more in electricity every year!

But don’t just take our word for it – we are the only spa company whose spas have been independently lab tested, and we’ve published the results. We are proud to say that Hot Spring Spas create the most energy efficient spas in the world!

Can I put a hot tub on grass?

Placing a hot tub on grass is not recommended, as the weight (usually between 1.2 and 2.5 tonnes) may see the ground shift or sink, causing stress on the spa and voiding the warranty.

Does a hot tub add value to a house?

A high-quality hot tub that is seamlessly integrated into the look and landscape of your property can add real value to your home. Even if your hot tub doesn’t add to the bottom line of your property appraisal, it can still act as the X-factor that attracts potential buyers.

For the owners of holiday rental and Airbnb properties, a spa can be the sort of big ticket item that can see you attracting far more guests. The right choice will require minimal maintenance and operating costs. “Spas are a key reason people book holiday homes, especially during winter when skiing here in Queenstown” says Sarah McIlwrick, General Manager of luxury accommodation provider Relax It’s Done.

What is the average life of a hot tub?

The longevity of your hot tub will be determined by the quality of the tub, the conditions it is subject to and your care and maintenance efforts.

As a ballpark figure, a hot tub can be expected to last anywhere from five years to 20 or more. A high-quality, sheltered and well-maintained tub will last decades, while a cheap, exposed and neglected tub might struggle to even reach the five year mark.

This is an important fact to remember when shopping for hot tubs, as while a lower upfront cost might be tempting, you may need to replace the tub multiple times to match the extended life of a higher priced but higher quality unit.

Are hot tubs good for your health?

A hot tub is a tool that fits within the broader medical discipline of hydrotherapy. Warm water has been proven to soothe the human body in a number of different ways:

The heat widens blood vessels, assisting the flow of nutrient-rich blood through the body. A hot tub’s directional jets can enhance this flow further.

The warmth can loosen tight muscles and reduce swelling.

The buoyancy takes weight off your joints, reducing wear and pain.

Mental Well-being

The ambience of a hot tub can help your mental state by easing stress and promoting relaxation.
