How Long Will My New Hot Tub Last?
If you’re looking for a hot tub then you’ve probably, like most savvy buyers been researching brands to find the best option for your needs. With an abundance of options available from when buying a hot tub, this can be overwhelming to most people. Whether it’s a question of buying a smaller hot tub or a larger family-sized party tub, or navigating the Amp requirements of a hot tub. It’s a lot to get your head around. A question we commonly see is about how long you can expect your hot tub to last before you need to replace it.
A new hot tub can last 5-20 years or more. Cheaper hot tubs usually produced with lower-quality materials typically don’t last long. When these tubs are poorly maintained they may not last more than 5 years. A quality-built hot tub, that is strongly maintained can last you more than 20 years. Essentially, a hot tub’s life span is dependent on two things and that is quality and maintenance.
Buying a High-Quality Hot Tub
You typically see the rule that a larger initial investment will see a greater return. A cheaper hot tub with a low-quality build and materials won’t last as long as a high-quality built tub. It will cost more in maintenance with money for possible error codes, fault finds, and repairs. With a greater initial spend, you can get a tub that has a quality built structure and better parts.

Maintaining Your New Hot Tub
When budgeting for a new hot tub it’s important to factor in how much you’ll want to spend on care. Good maintenance of your tub can extend the time it lasts. Hot tubs have many plastic and metal pieces in their body. All these pieces constantly come into contact with chemicals in the water of your tub and are usually the first things to experience wear and tear. It’s important to clean and wipe these exposed elements regularly.
The best time to ensure this is done is when you drain your tub. Before refilling it with fresh water you can simply clean these while you can get to them. You can also look after the shell of your tub at this time and remove any biofilm or contaminants like leaves that have gotten into the water.

It’s important to care for all the components in your hot tub like the heater, pump, insulation, piping, and jets.
