If you’re like most spa buyers, you’ll spend hours researching your perfect hot tub. In addition to your time and energy, you’ll invest your money, too. Like most big purchases, savvy spa shoppers want to know how long a hot tub will last. Information about your spa’s life span is also important in terms of hot tub maintenance. If a hot tub didn’t last very long, it wouldn’t make sense to spend money on spa maintenance or repairs. But if you know how to maintain a hot tub, it can last many years. Proper care, periodic repairs and high-quality hot tub covers are a smart investment.
Hot tub longevity depends on the quality of the tub. Generally, spas made of low-quality materials don’t last as long as the best hot tub brands made from high-quality parts. Similarly, portable hot tubs that don’t have regular care will have a shorter life. Essentially, a spa’s life span is based on a combination of two factors – spa quality and spa care.
A hot tub can last anywhere from 5-20 years or more. Cheaper hot tubs made with lower quality materials won’t last long. If those hot tubs are not well maintained, they may not last more than 5 years. Quality hot tubs that receive excellent care can be enjoyed for as long as 20 or more years.
