Hey all. My wife and I are considering the purchase of a hot tub. I've literally just started educating myself on different tubs and options, mostly via google and also shopping on Ebay and reading descriptions, etc.
Aside from personal preference issues, what would you guys suggest are important factors when deciding to buy our first hot tub? Is there much of a range in energy consumption between different models, given the same motor specs? Are there particular brands of components that I should look for? Certain specs in general that are important? Basically, how does one tell the difference between the junk and the good stuff? Being an avid online shopper for everything from car parts to furniture to electronics, I know that price is not always indicative of quality.
Thanks in advance!!
