- Test your hot tub water with test strips once or twice a week.

- Clean the filter every two weeks with water from the hose.
- Drain, clean, and fill the hot tub once every three to four months.
The size of your hot tub should reflect your intended use for it. What are the top hot tub sizes? Will it cater to the needs of the entire family? Is it meant just for you and your significant other? Or do you enjoy hosting elaborate backyard parties? Your lifestyle and layout of your backyard can help you determine if you would like to invest in a smaller or larger hot tub.
Most hot tub brands have models available in the following sizes and capacities: 2-3 seats, 4-5 seats, 5-6 seats, 6 or more seats. For a better idea of how big or small our hot tubs are, visit our showroom person today.
How you treat your hot tub will depend on the manufacturer and model. When you bought the hot tub, you should have received a set of detailed care instruction and cleaning guidelines. If not, you can contact us for more information.
Most hot tubs should have their water tested once a week to ensure that the pH and chlorine levels are balanced. If the test reveals that the water is not balanced, add chemicals to treat the water. During this time, you should also rinse the filter and inspect the spa system for any damage or issues, including the cover and steps.
Hot tub prices can range from $5,000, to $18,000 or more. The price of a hot tub will depend on several factors, including:
Generally, hot tubs with a higher price point will offer a better quality, while those with a lower price point often offer a lower quality. While it may seem like a smart move to opt for a spa with a lower price point at first to save on costs, this can actually end up costing you more in the long run due to costly maintenance, care and repairs. Not to mention that the experience tends to be lesser as well, due to outdated, weak or missing features.

Installing your pool above ground or below ground depends on your budget, lifestyle and backyard layout. Both installations have their own set of positives, but it will come down to your lifestyle on which you choose.
In-ground swimming pools
• More functional
• Better aesthetic
• Longer installation
• More expensive
• Lasts longer
Above-ground swimming pools
• Reduced risk of injury from slips and falls
• Reduced costs
• Easier to move locations
• Less invasive installation
A clean and functioning filter is key to an operational filtration system, as it catches and removes dirt and debris, keeping the water clean and free of impurities. We recommend rinsing the filter every two weeks with fresh water from the hose or kitchen sink. You can also use this time to spray it down with a filter cleaner and then continue to rinse.
Filter cleaning nozzles are available that can be attached to the end of a hose, which can help water to better reach the nooks and crannies of your filter. Soak your filter overnight in a bucket filled with water and a small amount of filter cleaner every two months to remove deep-down debris. We recommend replacing your hot tub filter annually to ensure a fully functional filtration system.
Making the decision to buy a hot tub is a big one. It’s not something you do every day, after all. Your lifestyle can have a significant impact on the decision to purchase a hot tub. Before making the decision, ask yourself these following questions:
- Where in my backyard will I install a hot tub?
- Will the hot tub be for my entire family, or just for me?
- Will I benefit from fewer aches and pains, better sleep, and reduced stress?
- Will I enjoy the convenience of access to a hydromassage in the comfort of my own home?
- Will my family benefit from the additional family time in the spa?
If you said yes to one or more of the questions above, a hot tub might be right for you! Speak with one of our team members to learn more about the prices, sizes, and brands available to you.
Deciding on a pool or hot tub will depend on your lifestyle, budget and personal preferences.

Here at Midnight Sun, we don’t play favorites with pools and hot tubs. We know that they can both offer a wide range of benefits that differ from one to another. The question is, what’s stopping you from getting both? There are many spectacular pool and spa installations, some that spillover from one to the other. So you can go from a refreshing swim to a rejuvenating soak in a matter of seconds.
