With cool weather on the way in Connecticut, many people are starting to think about getting a hot tub or spa to keep their temperatures up and back yards occupied. And while almost everyone is familiar with the image of aboveground hot tubs from manufacturers like Dream Maker and Marquis, fewer are aware that they can have custom-built in-ground spas designed and installed specifically for them.
Brothers Pool in Wallingford is one of the leading providers of hot tubs and spas in Connecticut, and custom options are no exception. If you’re interested in an in-ground, custom hot tub for your Connecticut home, call Brothers Pool at (203) 265-5980.
The Benefits of Custom In-Ground Spas
Like an in-ground pool, a good in-ground hot tub has a low profile that blends into and accents the landscape of your property rather than cluttering it up.
In-ground spas are also custom-built, meaning that they can be made with colors, designs, and materials that complement the existing décor. In short, in-ground spas and hot tubs are much more aesthetically pleasing than many alternatives.
In-ground spas are easier to install when done in conjunction with an in-ground pool, using the same filtration systems to reducing labor costs.
The Disadvantages of In-Ground Hot Tubs
The main disadvantage for most people will be financial. Even when installed alongside an in-ground swimming pool, the costs of installing an in-ground spa are higher than those of a standard above ground model. They can also use more energy to operate than many modern above ground hot tubs.
In-ground spas are often more difficult to maintain, especially through the winter. Custom designs may be difficult to find covers for, unlike above ground options, and winterization can be a hassle.
Finally, in-ground hot tubs typically feature far fewer jets and many above ground spas, usually fewer than ten at the most.
If you’re looking for a home spa that beautifies your home and you’re willing and able to spend a little extra time and money on it, a custom in-ground hot tub is very likely what you’re looking for.
If you’re on a tighter budget, or your primary reason for wanting a spa is the relaxing benefits of modern water jets, an aboveground model might be more appropriate.
