I don't have much experience with hot tubs or pools. I'm planning on installing an IG pool (mostly for my kids) either this spring or next spring depending on money. I can see a lot of benefits about including a spa when I build the pool; however, not having one before, I'm not sure if it's worth the extra cost.
So my question is, would it be a smart thing to buy a used hot tub that I learn on and get used to how it works and how much I use it and then sell it? Then, I'll know how much it gets used to decide if it's worth the approximately 10K for an IG spa.
I understand that an old hot tub, especially an inexpensive hot tub, will have a lot more problems and require much more maintenance than a new one. However, I consider that a good thing, because I will learn a lot that I will need in the future.
Recommendations, suggestions, and especially warnings, would be appreciated.
