The Best Hot Tub To Buy In 2022

by Brian DeBrosse

Shopping for a hot tub can be an incredibly overwhelming experience. With hundreds of brands, endless models, and a seemingly infinite number of features and buzzwords, finding the best hot tub can feel an impossible task to the average buyer.

It doesn't help that the industry - and by extension, hot tub dealers - often makes things frustratingly opaque. Due to manufacturer restrictions, most hot tub dealers aren't able to advertise their actual prices. Minimum Advertised Price policies, or MAP policies, keep many dealers from being able to advertise their competitive pricing in print, television or online media. Because of this, prospective buyers are often asked to "request more information" by submitting their contact information. This can get pretty tiring once you've submitted your information for the twentieth time.

Luckily, we're here to help. With over thirty years of experience in the hot tub industry, it's safe to say we know a thing or two about a quality tub. We have not only been an authorized dealer for several hot tub brands throughout the years (L.A. Spas, Master Spas, Dimension One, Jacuzzi® Hot Tubs, etc.), but we've seen several other brands come and go throughout that time. Our in-house certified hot tub technicians have had an abundance of experience working on both the brands we've carried and the brands other dealers have sold. 

We've taken all of that experience and compiled a list of the best hot tub brands to purchase in 2022. While we always prefer you shop with us, our number one goal is to make sure everyone is happy with their hot tub.

The List

Without further ado, in no particular order, here are what we feel are the best brands to buy in 2022:

What else should I consider?

It's not just the hot tub brand you're buying when you purchase a new hot tub - you're also buying the dealer that's selling it to you. You want to make sure you're buying from a reputable dealer that you can trust and that you can count on. Don't buy from dealers that barely have any skin in the game and be wary of dealers that carry countless (3 or 4+) lines of hot tubs. Dealers like that are far more concerned with the quantity of their sales than they are the quality of the products they're selling.

With over 30+ years in the hot tub industry, we're a dealer you can trust. Family-owned and operated, you're not just another buyer to us - you're a new member of our family, and we treat you that way every time you walk in our door. There's no revolving door of salesmen or saleswomen here - we'll remember your name, we'll remember your tub, and we'll do the best we can to take care of you.

We hope this list helps you on your way to finding the best hot tub for you!
