Knowledge is power, and it pays to do your research before jumping into a major investment like a hot tub. You’ll spend years enjoying your hot tub, so it’s a choice you want to take seriously. And there are a few things you should know before you take the plunge and actually buy your hot tub.

Before your big purchase, take some time to do some research on the different makes and models of hot tubs available to you.

Do you have limited space? You might want to consider our Fantasy Spas® line to meet that specific need. Do you entertain often? Then a hot tub from our line of Sundance® Spas might better fit your lifestyle.

Are you looking for a way to remain active during the long, cold winters here in Idaho? Then one of our Aquatic Training Vessels™ by Marquis® will absolutely fit the bill. Your needs will determine the exact hot tub you buy, but you’ll need to be educated about your choices. So, let’s keep going, so you’re prepared!

There are a few qualities that you should definitely look for when you’re considering the right business for you. Mastercraft Pool & Spa is obviously the best choice, but we may be a little biased. In all seriousness, you want to be sure you’re getting the best hot tub for you.

You’ve Bought Your Hot Tub. Now How Do You Care For It In Idaho?

You’ve found the perfect hot tub, so now what? There are some basic spa care tips that you can follow to make your hot tub ownership here in the cold Idaho winters a little easier. The most important thing to focus on when caring for your hot tub is maintenance.

It is far easier to maintain a clean and clear hot tub than it is to regain your clean and clear water once algae or cloudiness has taken over. Checking your chemical levels regularly is a must, and it would help you immensely to learn the basics of your hot tubs chemistry. It’s really not too, too complicated once you get the hang of it.

And if the idea of maintaining your hot tub is just too much for you, that’s okay! Our team at Mastercraft Pool & Spa can schedule you for maintenance, so you don’t have to worry.

Remember all the great benefits of a hot tub soak like reduced stress and increased blood circulation. You can enhance those benefits by reducing your stress even more when you let Mastercraft do the maintenance. 

What About The Idaho Cold Season?

So the next thing you may be wondering about is the Idaho cold season. We’re no strangers to the weather here in Idaho, so we understand that your concern is valid.

But our answers may surprise you. You don’t need to shut your hot tub down unless you just want to. That’s the beauty of a hot tub in our climate.

You can use it year-round and still reap those benefits. There’s something truly special about relaxing in the perfectly warm waters of your spa while the snow dances around you and the hush falls over the land. 

Now, there are some steps you should make sure to follow so your hot tub remains in good working order through the cold season.

Keeping the heater on and the water circulating is necessary for the life of your hot tub. And you’ll want to make sure the water levels don’t dip too low. But other than that, it’s pretty simple.

And if you’re still concerned, there are some hot tubs, particularly in the Marquis® line, that have protections built-in for your spa against harsh Idaho winters. So, don’t fret! Your hot tub was made for this climate.
