    Strengths & Weaknesses

    Hot Springs spas are manufactured by and are one of the registered trademarks of Watkins Wellness. Watkins manufacturing processes and designs have resulted in their truly excellent Hot Spring brand, partially due to their partnership with the BMW Group Company.

    They have one of the largest network of spa dealerships in the world so it should be easy to find a dealer near to your location. Gain first-hand personal experience with a wet test of different hot tub models if you can, as this should really help you in making the right decision.

    Hot Springs hot tubs have an excellent range of features, such as spa covers that come as standard, and state-of-the-art technology, particularly when it comes to water care.

    Their unique salt water system produces its own chlorine so you don't have to spend loads of money buying water care chemicals to kill bacteria. Also, the Hotspring Spas Tri-X® filter system has double the cleaning surface area of comparable cartridge filters, making water maintenance simple.

    When it comes to energy efficiency, Hot Springs hot tub models adhere to the strict standard of energy efficiency set out by the California Energy Commission. Their tubs are some of the most energy-efficient models on the market.

    With great customer reviews and an excellent range of high-quality hot tubs, Hot Spring is likely to have a model to suit most budgets.

    Unlike some hot tub companies, Hot Spring does not have swim spa range. If you are thinking about swim spas, then you will have to try elsewhere.

    Other Brands To Consider

    If you google hot tubs, you will find a load of brands listed. Hot Spring has got a great line-up, but what about some of the other great brands on the market?

    Caldera Spas offer a comparable range of hot tub collections with similar price points as Hot Spring Spas. They have great features such as saltwater systems for water care, and they take their energy efficiency seriously as well.

    Jacuzzi is undoubtedly the most famous name in the spa industry. Like Hot Springs they offer a similar range of hot tubs, from high-end, feature-rich luxury spas to the more basic plug-and-play models.

    Unlike Hot Springs, Jacuzzi also offers a range of swim spas. Swim spas are an all-in-one pool and hot tub, a good alternative to a traditional swimming pool because they take up less space and are much cheaper, while offering all the hydrotherapy benefits of a spa.
