Likely the most appealing element of a hot tub is its massage capabilities. When added to the soothing feel of hot water, it can truly make or break your hot tub experience. As such, it is important to learn as much as you can about this aspect before buying. The jets are the most vital variable of the massage equation. Look for jets that do not have any bearings in them, as these can corrode quickly.
Also, though it may be tempting to go for the model with the most jets, more is not always better. Instead, look for jets that are strategically placed in the most optimal spots. A few properly arranged jets can be far more effective than dozens of random ones. For example, foot jets are often overlooked, even though they can provide one of best possible massages.
Customization is also a much sought-after feature when it comes to jets. Ask your retailer about the customization options the manufacturer offers. For example, can you add or remove jets? Can you swap out one type of jet for another, even after you’ve made your purchase? There is nothing worse than sitting in front of a jet that irritates your back.
Also, look for a model with optimized hydraulics to ensure an even flow of water is provided to each jet for a smooth, comfortable massage.
