When's the Best Time to Buy a Hot Tub or Spa Pool?

Hot tubs and spa pools are a great way to relax, but we appreciate that you wish to consider your purchase. That's why it's important to know when the best time to buy a hot tub or spa pool is. In this blog post, we're going to tell you when you should be looking to buy, and how Sapphire Spas can help you find the perfect spa for your lifestyle and home.


So when is the best time to buy a spa?

1.   The Off-Season

If you're looking to save some cash, the off-season (which is usually during the autumn and winter months) is a great time to buy. The demand is lower at this time because of the colder weather, so retailers and manufacturers offer discounts and promotions to try and boost sales. Sapphire Spas is no exception, and they often have some pretty great deals during the off-season on their high-quality hot tub and spa pool models which are in stock in showrooms throughout Australia and New Zealand.

2.   End of the Month

The end of the month is another great time to buy a portable spa pool. Many retailers have monthly sales targets they're heading for and, if they're a little bit behind, they might be willing to offer you a discount to help them reach their target. As a manufacturer, the Sapphire Spa factory achieves the best flow-through if production lines are kept running at a steady capacity so will continue to build spas throughout the month so they're prepared for upcoming purchases. If you're flexible with when you want to buy, try to do it at the end of the month to get the best possible deal.

3.   Holiday Sales

Holidays like EOFY and Black Friday are a great time to save some money on a spa pool purchase. Lots of retailers and manufacturers offer special discounts and promotions during these holidays to try and get more customers. Keep an eye out for these holiday sales to get the best value for your money. Sapphire Spa retail showrooms often offer promotions on their luxury hot tub and spa pool models, especially around the time when the Spa Shows are on in each state.

4.   New Model Releases

When a new model is released, retailers and manufacturers often offer discounts on last year's models to clear out their inventory. If you don't mind having a slightly older model, waiting for new releases can be a great opportunity to get a hot tub at a discounted price. As Sapphire Spas update models, they may have deals on floor stock models.

5.   Think About the Season

If you want to use your hot tub or spa pool during a particular season, it's a good idea to buy it before that season starts. That way, you can have it installed and ready to use when the weather gets warmer (or colder, if that's your thing) and you won't have to worry about buying and installing it during the peak season. Sapphire Spas has a huge range of hot tub and spa pool models that are perfect for every season, so they can help you find the right one for you.

Things To Consider When Buying A Spa

If you're in the market for a new spa, one of the first things you need to consider is what type of spa you want. There are two main types of spas: spa pools and swim spas. While both offer similar benefits in terms of relaxation and hydrotherapy, they do have some differences that are worth considering.

A spa pool is smaller in size and designed primarily for sitting and soaking. They typically have a greater number of jets than a swim spa, so provide targeted massages to help soothe sore muscles and alleviate stress. Spa pools can be placed in most homes and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes with many different seating arrangements, to suit your needs.

A swim spa, on the other hand, is larger and designed for exercise and swimming. They have a continuous current that you can swim against, which is great for low-impact workouts and physical therapy. Swim spas are typically installed outdoors when you have a slightly larger area available. They offer a great way to get a full-body workout in the comfort of your own home, without the need for a full-sized swimming pool.



Have a look at these family spas that may suit your lifestyle

The family range of spas are bigger than the compact range and offer a variety of seating and jet layouts. Most of these spas are over 2m square, allowing for greater personal space for each occupant, but without being so large as to take over your outside space. These spas are designed with groups in mind, big enough for the whole family or to catch up with friends. Most of the family range has been created with enlarged footwells to allow space for multiple users, including undercut footwells to accommodate even the tallest people. Many models include his and hers recliners or captain’s chairs to account for the different heights of individuals and ensure everyone has a position just for them. Their powerful air and water jets ensure a blissful therapeutic experience for all users. So if you want a slice of heaven in your backyard, a spa from the Sapphire Spas family range could be just what you are looking for.
