Outdoor spas are fine addition to home facilities that can be shared by family members. The popularity of tubs set on a deck has been made possible by its relatively lower cost compared to construction of in-ground pools. It is also way much better than setting up an above ground pool because it requires lesser materials and lower maintenance. If you are thinking of buying a potable hot tub and you have a limit on your budget, think of used hot tubs as a practical alternative to brand new units. Aside from saving on initial purchase price, you also have the flexibility of moving the unit right where you want to have it positioned. One of the disadvantages of an inset tub as compared with portable tubs is that, an inset tub may no longer appear as good if it is set under the ground. A portable tub however, can be easily placed in concrete slabs, giving it a fuller view. You can also make a new interior right where you want to move it which can either be indoors or outdoors. Just make sure that you let your spa sit on an even ground and with accessibility to power source.
If you decide to set up your used spa in a deck, you may have to think of a spa cover to protect it from dirt, debris, molds, leaves and even bird droppings. A cover for a used hot tub will help you maintain the cleanliness of water as well as preserve the parts from untimely depreciation. It also prevents contaminants from entering into the tub. Water contaminants can be a source of skin diseases and it will also speed up the dilapidation of your unit. In addition, a tub cover will help you conserve water. For sure, you would not want to end up in high energy bills because of frequent water change.
