If you want to elevate your spa experience, reduce stress, and soothe tension, we’re taking…
Purchasing a hot tub can be a great investment for both your physical and mental well-being. They provide physical relief through warm water and massage jets as well as give you somewhere to destress and unwind from your day. Hot tubs come in a variety of sizes typically ranging from two to eight people.
If you have a smaller yard, you might have the misconception that you'll never be able to fit a hot tub there. However, that's far from the truth. We’re going to look into the best smaller tubs for when a large tub just doesn’t make sense and compare our favorite models.
Benefits of a Small Hot Tub
Takes Up Less Space
There's no reason why a smaller backyard should restrict your enjoyment and relaxation. If you're worried about fitting a hot tub in your limited space there's no need to fret.
Smaller hot tubs take up less space while still making sure your backyard is transformed into a personal oasis.
Suitable For Small Families
If you have a 2-3 person family a large hot tub often doesn't make sense. If it's just you and your spouse what will you do with all that extra room in your hot tub?
A small hot tub is more suitable for smaller families. It also creates a more intimate and personal experience.
Having a smaller tub means a smaller to-do list when it comes to maintaining your water quality. A smaller volume of water requires smaller chemical dosages, which in turn leads to a lower chemical cost.
Also, when it comes time to drain and refill, it is much quicker to restart a smaller hot tub.
Smaller hot tubs also have smaller covers which are easier to remove and replace with just one person compared to a larger, more awkward cover.
A smaller hot tub is more lightweight. This means it will be easier to move if need be.
If you want to change up the placement of your backyard, moving a small hot tub won't be that difficult as compared to a larger one.
