While buying second-hand cars is big business, and often a much cheaper way to get a good quality product at a reduced price, the spa business is a different story.
If you buy a second hand spa from a manufacturer that has closed down, it can be a nightmare, if not impossible to get it repaired. Spare parts like jet pumps and heating elements are not standard and will not fit all spas.
So it can be very difficult, costly and sometimes impossible to repair a spa that does not have local service support. Fact: Though buying a cheap hot tub may save you money up front, it is very likely you will be spending much more money than it’s worth in the future.
Typically, the cheaper or older the spa is, the lower quality the parts are. This means that you will have to pay to replace the parts more often, spend more time and money cleaning your spa water and pay more to keep it operating.
When it comes down to buying a spa, a familiar phrase comes to mind, you get what you pay for.
