There is nothing more relaxing than a nice long soak in a hot tub. An outdoor hot tub can be a great addition to any house. These days technology has elevated the overall experience we get from our hot tubs. Fancy jets and massagers have turned hot tubs into mini hot tub spas. But these upgrades have also made the prices of hot tubs skyrocket. So if you want the hot tub experience but can't afford it, here are a few steps to help you find affordable and inexpensive hot tubs.
Check your local newspaper classified ads. Many times people put their hot tubs up for sale after only using them for a few months. For some people the novelty of a new hot tub wears off quickly and then it just sits on their deck unused.
Search the internet for "discount hot tubs". There are many discount hot tub retailers that can be found by typing in "discount hot tubs" into any search engine. Some discount hot tub suppliers online will ship to a local hot tub or pool and spa retailer for free. You can pick it up from there.
Search online classifieds for used hot tubs. If you are buying a large hot tub, be ready for a project. Hot tubs are extremely heavy and can take as many as 10 people to lift them. If you are going to buy a hot tub from an online classified, consider buying a smaller portable type. These hot tubs are smaller and a lot easier to move.
