Choosing The Best Round Hot Tub
There are many different shapes and sizes of hot tubs on the market now. Most hot tubs on the market are square or rectangular but now there is a round hot tub appearing which have a lot of benefits. Choosing the best round hot tub for your needs is to decide what features you want or need, and how you want to heat your tub. Choosing how to heat your round hot tub is perhaps the most important consideration. Some round hot tubs feature wood-fired heating systems that feature a stove placed directly in the water. This will cut down on operating expenses, but it also takes up more room within the tub and it is not as easily adjusted as an electric heating system. Electric systems are much easier to use, but they are more expensive to operate and require a power outlet nearby. Gas heat can also be used to heat your tub, but this is also more expensive than a wood-fired tub and it requires a gas hook-up for proper operation.
Unlike acrylic spas that are much larger but also shallower, a round hot tub can accommodate several people in a small amount of space. Round hot tubs are deeper than acrylic spas, and the walls of the tub are almost always straight. This means your hot tub experience will be very different from that of an acrylic spa, so you should choose your features accordingly. Seating in a round hot tub usually means a wooden bench rather than an ergonomic or padded seat like the ones in an acrylic spa. Choose benches that are comfortable but also made of the same wood as the spa walls to resist rot and mold.
