When it comes to Oklahoma City pools, hot tubs are a must. It is a common trend that has swept the industry. This is because hot tubs are great for relaxing and unwinding after a long day. Not everyone wants to do laps all the time. Below elaborate further on how to add a hot tub to your Oklahoma City pool.
What Is A Hot Tub Attached To A Pool?
An inground hot tub is a lot like an inground Oklahoma City swimming pool, and has many of the same advantages and drawbacks. As with inground pools, they have a lower profile that blends easily into almost any setting. Rather than cluttering up your property, they can actually improve it in the same way a small pond or other water feature would.
On the downside, inground hot tubs are more expensive to install and maintain. Installation cost varies a lot depending on the materials used and many other factors, but you can expect to pay a minimum of $10,000 – and perhaps much more. That said, adding a spa to a new pool installation is often cheaper than installing one on its own or as part of a renovation.
Best Options For Oklahoma City Pool Owners
As mentioned, adding an inground spa becomes more cost-effective if you’re already having a new pool installed. The same crew that installs your pool can also install the spa as part of a single project. The pool and hot tub may also be able to share things like heating, plumbing, and safety features.
If you have an older pool that needs freshening up, adding an attached spa is one (very expensive) way to renovate. However, if you’re just looking to add luxury and fun, an above ground hot tub might make more sense. It’s cheaper and offers more options for placement.
If you don’t already have an inground pool and aren’t planning one, getting an inground spa may expose you to a lot of complications normally associated with pool ownership (safety laws, permits, etc). On the other hand, the price of an inground hot tub is attractive if you view it as an alternative to building an Oklahoma City pool. When not constrained by an existing pool layout, another great option is to build an above ground spa into a deck.
