PRICE VS. COST
Now that you have an idea in mind regarding what size, seating, features and options you are looking for, let’s talk about pricing.
Price is how much you pay for the hot tub itself, but the true cost includes more: site preparation, accessories, chemicals, and most importantly, electricity bills and repair expenses. Poorly engineered hot tubs, inferior insulation, spa covers, equipment, and poor workmanship increase the total lifetime cost of your spa.
A spa that has been well engineered and built to be fully service like any other home appliance will provided the lowest cost of ownership.
