Would you buy a new mattress without trying out a few different models in the store? Lying down on them, seeing what’s comfortable, what best fits you?
Would you buy a new car without taking different models for a spin? Evaluating what seats are most comfortable, where the blind spots are, horsepower, safety systems, even the stereo?
Of course not! And buying a spa shouldn’t be any different. Here are the top three reasons why a wet test is so important:
Reason 1 – The Water
Settle into the hot tub and fully experience the water. Notice how fresh and clean it smells. Ask the sales representative about aromatherapy options that can be added to the water to add to the experience.
Two of our wet test spas feature MicroSilk technology, microbubbles of oxygen that improve circulation and cellular respiration leaving your skin glowing while reducing fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll leave your test soak with skin that feels silky smooth.
Be sure to ask about the chemicals used in the spa, too. That way you can create the same feeling and scent in your spa at home.
Reason 2 – The Seats & Jets
While you’re enjoying the warm, soothing water, be sure to take note of the seats and jets – they really aren’t all the same, you know.
You’re going to want seats that are deep enough that the spa water covers your shoulders. After all, Connecticut winters are cold (and spring and fall are awfully chilly). It’s important that your spa “fits” you and keeps you warm.
It’s also important that the seats are comfortable, for everyone who will regularly use it. Most hot tubs today – including those we have available for testing – offer multi-level testing so people of all ages and sizes will be comfortable. Be sure to test the lounge seat, too, if that’s a feature you’re interested in.
Jet location is extremely important. During your wet test, pay attention to where the jets in each test model are located. Are they where you most often have aches and pains? Are there a variety of jets? Popular areas for jet placement include targeting the back, shoulders, calves – and even the feet.
Reason 3 – The Size of the Spa
No matter how much you like the features of a spa – they won’t matter much if the hot tub is too big for your home, or too small for your family. While you’re conducting your wet test, be sure to think realistically about the space you have available (bring a tape measure if you want to), and think about the number of people who’ll be enjoying your spa with you on a regular basis.
