Big Box Vs Specialty Store Hot Tubs

Hot Tubs are increasingly popular and affordable. Because of this, more and more “Big Box” stores are stocking hot tubs. While it may seem like a good idea to save a few bucks and purchase a tub from Walmart or Home Depot, it may end up costing you more time and money in the long run. So, before you go hot tub shopping, allow us to explain why specialty stores exceed big box stores when it comes to hot tubs and saunas…


Big box stores don’t have the luxury of knowledgeable hot tub experts.
When you buy a hot tub from Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, a dedicated team of experts comes along with the tub. We are there to help you make an educated decision about what tub is right for you and your family, provide upkeep and service information, and help determine what chemicals you need and when… Free of charge! You really can’t be the service that comes along with one of our hot tubs, especially not at a big box store.

Installation? We got you covered.
When you order a hot tub from a big box store, often times it ends up arriving exactly as that. A big box. You then have to assemble and move the tub yourself, or hire someone to do it for you. On the other hand, when you purchase from Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, we have a service team that will deliver your tub exactly where you want it, install it, and do everything needed to get it up and running for your next soak… Once again, free of charge! Your hot tub delivery day will be an exciting day rather than a huge hassle.

We keep a record of your purchases.
At Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, we keep a detailed record of our customers’ purchases. Why is this important? When you need to replace a part or get a new chemical, we know exactly what you need and can easily determine what to order based on our records of your tub’s model and brand. We even record what chemicals you’ve been putting in your tub to determine what you may need or prefer going forward! With a big box store hot tub, you may find yourself nervously searching serial numbers on google to try to match a part or chemical to your tub.

We offer financing.
When you purchase from a big box store, you end up dealing out a huge chunk of cash all at once. At Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, you can make monthly payments as low at $99/month on your new hot tub!

Quality matters.
You want your hot tub to be built to last. It’s not a disposable product and it’s something that you should enjoy for years and years. At Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, we are passionate about our products because we know that they are the best in the business. Our hot tubs are durable, reliable, aesthetic, and made for years to come. At big box stores, hot tubs are mass-produced with cheap materials and quality is sacrificed.

You want your home to be aesthetic, right?
The great thing about hot tubs is that they can actually add a design element to your home or yard. At Hot Spring Spas & Pool Tables 2, we offer a wide variety of colors, materials, and accessories to make sure your hot tub looks beautiful and matches your home. At big box stores, you may have a couple options but likely you’ll be stuck with an eyesore.


There you have it! Big box stores are great for groceries, office supplies, and clothes, but when it comes to hot tub shopping we suggest you leave it up to the experts!
