There are many reasons to want a hot tub. For one, it can be a very relaxing experience after a long day at work. This alone for many makes it worth the money. But don't forget that it also raises the value of a house. So don't feel bad that you are spending a lot of money on an unnecessary and hedonistic splurge. In some ways it is an investment as well. Two person hot tubs are great for multiple reasons. There are also some ways to save a good amount of money on them.
Most people consider hot tubs (for six people) to be way too bulky. Many houses are cramped and many owners feel that their home could not accommodate one. This is somewhat true. But the design s has really changed in recent years. Two person hot tubs are becoming more and more popular. They take up less room, meaning more people can purchase them. Corner hot tubs in particular are extremely good at saving space. But small ones are also cheaper and consume less energy (meaning lower upkeep costs.) And if you think about it, how often will you have massive gatherings in your tub. Sure, it would be nice when you have family or friends over. But the fact is that it will probably be just you and your spouse the vast majority of your time. And if you have to fire up a massive six person hot tub for one or two people, you're going to be wasting a good amount of heat and water.
Many people hesitate on purchasing a hot tub though because of the cost. This is true, they are not exactly cheap. But you will already be saving money if you choose to buy a small one that accommodates one or two people. But there are also ways you can save money.
Definitely buy your hot tub online. The market is very competitive and there are several high quality retailers that have cheap pricing. The problem with buying a tub in person is that many sales people are compensated on commission. This can cause them to be aggressive in trying to close the sales. Looking at retailers websites on the other hand is pressure-free and only takes a few minutes.
