When it comes to deciding between a hot tub and a swimming pool, there are several factors to consider. Let’s look at some key features of hot tubs that can help you make the right choice.
Hot tubs are designed for relaxation and offer a spa-like experience in the comfort of your own backyard. The warm water and massaging jets can help to reduce stress and ease muscle tension.
Hot tubs can be used for hydrotherapy to ease muscle and joint pain. The warm water and jets can help to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.
Ease of installation
Hot tubs come in different sizes and can be installed easily. Hot tubs made from Western Red Cedar are often assembled on location. This makes them a great option for those with limited access to the garden because each component fits through a normal doorway.

Compared to swimming pools, hot tubs require less water and energy to operate. This can help to reduce your utility bills and make them a more eco-friendly option.
Hot tubs can be used year-round, even in colder climates. Some models come with heat pumps that can operate at -20°C ambient temperature. In the summer nothing beats stargazing while relaxing in a hot tub during long evenings.
Hot tubs are typically smaller than swimming pools and can be installed in a smaller backyard or patio. This makes them a great option for those who have limited outdoor space.
In addition to relaxation and therapy, hot tubs can offer a range of health benefits. The warm water and jets can help to improve sleep quality, reduce anxiety, and even lower blood pressure.
