Spas & Hot Tubs

Relax in a Hot Tub or Spa

When your muscles are tired from all the work you have to do, you might want to treat yourself to some time in a hot tub or spa. The choices of hot tubs on eBay are vast, and you can find both new and used hot tubs for sale.

What features should you look for when buying a hot tub?

Whether checking out new or used hot tubs for sale on eBay, your decision comes down to your preferences regarding which hot tub suits you well. Some people may prefer a smaller tub for one or two people, and others may want one in which they can have a party. Besides size, other features to look out for include:

  • Jets: Jets that shoot out bubbles can give you a massage. Some tubs have more jets than others, and the jets may be adjustable in terms of direction and strength.
  • Insulation: Insulation will slow heat loss, giving you a more efficient unit. There could be basic or layered insulation on cheap hot tubs for sale, and higher-end tubs will likely have full-foam insulation.
  • Covers: A cover will help protect against heat loss, and it can also keep debris out of the water. Covers can simply lie on top of a hot tub, or they can be sealed with one or more hinges. The tighter the cover, the more insulation you'll provide to your hot tub.
  • Entertainment connections: Some tubs may come with Bluetooth connectivity for streaming music through the tub's speakers. Spas and hot tubs can also come with HD video monitors so you can watch your favorite shows or a big game while remaining in the water.
  • Lighting: Lights can add to the ambience when you use your hot tub at night. Most units use LED lights, and you may even be able to change the color or brightness.
What materials are used in hot tubs?

Hot tubs can be made out of a variety of materials, to include:

  • Rotomolded plastic: This lightweight material is commonly found in cheaper hot tubs.
  • Acrylic: An acrylic hot tub for sale can be made with UV inhibitors so that the color won't fade. Acrylic is fairly durable and energy-efficient in tubs.
  • Vinyl: This material is often used in conjunction with cement frames, so it can be ideal if you have an outdoor in-ground pool plus tub configuration.
