What is the Best Hot Tub for Canada?
Updated: Apr 20
When it comes to hot tubs, Canadians have a lot of options. With so many different models and styles available, it can be difficult to decide which is best for your needs. In this blog post, we’ll explore what makes a hot tub great for Canadian climates and discuss some of the best hot tubs on the market today.
Factors to Consider When Choosing a Hot Tub
When shopping for a hot tub, there are several factors you should consider before making your purchase. The first is size. You want to ensure that you get a hot tub that will fit in your space and accommodate all of your guests comfortably. You also want to consider how much energy it will take to heat and maintain the temperature of the water. Additionally, you should consider how easy it will be to clean and maintain the hot tub over time.
The Climate in Canada
Canada has some extreme weather conditions throughout the year, so you must ensure that your hot tub can handle these temperatures. It’s important to find one designed with insulation and heating systems specifically designed for Canadian climates. This will help ensure your hot tub stays warm even during cold winter months. Additionally, you should look for a model with an efficient filtration system to keep the water clean and clear all year round.
Types of Hot Tubs Available
There are several different types of hot tubs available on the market today. The most popular type is the premium acrylic series, which is made from a fibreglass-based shell with an acrylic surface and can be installed easily in any backyard or patio space. Premium acrylic hot tubs boast fantastic firm hydrotherapy, multi-level seating, beautiful LED lights, electronic water purification, WI-FI connectivity, waterfalls and other amenities. Premium acrylic hot tub models can be moved, which is great if you need something that you can take with you should you decide to move or change your backyard design.

Plug & Play Hot Tubs
Plug & Play Hot Tubs are the perfect choice if you're not quite ready for a full commitment due to budget or space constraints—or perhaps both. You want to enjoy the warm water without getting into any trouble (figuratively, of course). We encourage you to take a gradual approach to hot tub ownership, starting with the numerous advantages of plug-and-play models. This option makes sense not only in terms of convenience but also in terms of affordability.
Our plug-and-play hot tubs boast many impressive features: powerful jets for satisfying hydrotherapy, ambient LED lighting for setting the mood, and user-friendly electronic water filtration. They are crafted with a full insulation cavity beneath the robust shell and offer exceptional energy efficiency, similar to modern home designs built for the Canadian climate. The unmatched portability of our plug-and-play hot tubs allows for easy relocation, whether you want to redesign your backyard or move the hot tub indoors for the winter. With no rewiring needed, you can even store it inside during the cold Canadian months.
Inflatable Hot Tubs
Inflatable hot tub options can be conveniently shipped to your doorstep or easily transported in your SUV. Carrying the hot tub to your desired location, whether in your backyard or home, is a breeze as it comes in two manageable boxes that two people can handle. Once you've positioned the inflatable hot tub, it can be inflated using a standard electric air pump or, for the more energetic, a bicycle pump.
Once your inflatable hot tub is set up at your home, you'll appreciate the ease of draining, deflating, and transporting it to another location. Inflatable hot tubs are an excellent choice for Canadians who own a vacation home and do not wish to install a permanent or plug-and-play hot tub. When the season ends, our inflatable hot tubs can be effortlessly deflated, disassembled, and stored or returned to your primary residence for continued enjoyment.
Keep in mind that inflatable hot tubs have a basic heating system and lack the insulation found in our premium and portable hot tub options. Consequently, they are not recommended for use in extremely cold weather, as they cannot maintain a comfortable temperature. However, their ease of mobility allows you to set up your inflatable hot tub at the cottage and then take it home, enjoying the flexibility to move it whenever and wherever you want.
Choosing a new hot tub can be overwhelming due to all of the different options available in today’s market. It’s important you consider all these key features in order to make the best decision – size, climate, and budget.
