There are many questions that may crop up in your mind when you look forward to buy Jacuzzi hot tub. There are certain areas where you have to be duly informed and provided with the scope to question your service provider. Some of them are listed below:

Which of the acrylic is made use of in the shells?

Most of the spas look to be great in showrooms. In reality, only the ones constituting an acrylic shell is of good quality. You need to ask if it is some branded acrylic Quaarite or Lucite. Lucite Xtra is a cast non porous acrylic and is stain resistant regarding most of the oils and lotions used in the spas. This material retains the color and shine despite various sanitizing chemicals, sunlight exposures and high temperatures.

How are shell made and strengthened?

It is better to ask how the shell has been made, formed and whether the manufacturing processes used are environment friendly. For instance, ABS plastics are often used to strengthen the shells instead of fiber class and are more environments friendly.

What is it about manifold plumbing?

It is basically designed for balancing the distribution of water pressure and for reducing the numbers of the plumbing joints in order to maximize water flows.

What shall be asked about guarantee?

It is important that you inquire about the guarantee of the manufacturer on the below mentioned lines:

* The shell has to be properly warranted against any water leakage that may be caused by material defects for at least 10 years from purchase date

* The spa plumbing, fixtures, fitting pipe drains should be duly warranted against the leaks for 5 years from purchase date.

* The pump motor and spa motors have to be actually warranted for almost 2 years from purchase date.

Are the jets adjustable?

The jets have to be adjustable when you avail the hot tubs. If they are not adjustable it implies that you are buying the worst quality that will prove to be absolutely useless. In fact, it will not give you those pleasant massage effects also.

Does it have proper construction? It is essential that you ask it is bottom sealed properly or has a cheap frame of steel. In fact, you also need to ask about the effective insulation and if it is fully foamed.
