We get it. Shopping for a hot tub in Manitoba can be daunting. The 5-6 person tub at the big box store is $5k. Somewhere else a tub is $10k. Another place is $15k. What’s the difference?
Here’s the real deal.
For a QUALITY tub, you’re looking at least $7-11k. Meaning, one that will last 10+ years, has a good warranty, reliable parts service etc. There will ALWAYS be cheaper tubs out there, but usually you get what you pay for. The main differences in price in the ones we carry are jet power, size, features like lights/fountains and whether they are self-cleaning or not. We carry two main lines from Hydropool – Serenity and Self-Cleaning.
The Serenity is a very good tub, definitely an upgrade from some of the cheap-o models and a great value for the money. For your situation I’d probably look at the 6000 or the 7000 (the 5000 can be a little cramped for a family of 6). You can see the models available here: http://myurbanlife.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/HPSerenity.pdf
The Self-Cleaning is more luxurious with an upgraded cabinet, ice bucket, pressurized filter system and of course, self-cleaning technology. You can check out more about that here: http://myurbanlife.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/HPSelfClean.pdf
For self-cleans I’d look at the, 670 or 695 to start with and possibly move up to the 720 or 770 if you need more space.
