Top 10 Questions About Spa Ownership

Is it difficult to maintain a clean spa?
American Spas™ hot tubs come with a state-of-the-art filtration system that makes having clean water for your soaks a painless task. Follow the simple maintenance steps included in your owner’s manual to properly test the chemical levels in your spa. These tests are quick and easy and will ensure continued enjoyment of your American Spas™ hot tub for years to come.

Does a spa need to be drained and refilled for each use?
No. Drainage and refilling are typically done every three to four months depending on the number of soakers, frequency of use and proper water treatment.

Is it better to place the spa inside or outside?
Indoor spa installations typically cost more, which is one of the reasons why most hot tubs are placed outside. Structural considerations include making sure your indoor property can accommodate the weight of the hot tub and provide humidity ventilation. Additionally, check with your area’s building department for any indoor spa building codes. American Spas™ offers an alternative to building your spa inside by enabling you to build your spa outside within a spa enclosure or beneath a villa or gazebo.

Is any plumbing required for my American Spas™ hot tub?

What are the electrical requirements for a spa?

Are there any concerns with having children or older people in the hot tub?
