Frequently Asked Questions

At Motor City Hot Tubs, we have been around long enough to know that even the homeowners most excited to invest in a hot tub may have some final questions before taking the plunge. That’s why we took the time to put together some of the most common questions we get concerning hot tubs and swim spa systems. If you have any questions not listed here, please feel free to reach out to us by phone, email, in person, or using the form below!

What is the average cost of a hot tub?

When discussing the average price of a hot tub, it is important to consider the long-term value in health benefits and overall enjoyment. Not to mention a well-maintained spa system can last many years. That said, $3,000 to $16,000 is the range you can expect for your first hot tub.

What's the monthly cost of running a hot tub?

The cost to run and maintain a hot tub or exercise pool can vary depending on manufacturer and size. When you buy an average-sized hot tub from a reputable manufacturer that uses quality insulation, it will cost you around $30-$40 per month to filter and heat.

What chemicals do you need for water maintenance?

Keeping the water in your hot tub clean and balanced not only keeps it safe for you and your family but also helps the system last longer. To properly treat the water in your system, multiple types of treatment chemicals will be required, such as:

  • Products to adjust the pH
  • Non-chlorine shock
  • Sequestering agents
  • Sanitizers
  • Defoamers
  • Calcium hardness increasers and decreasers
When should I replace the water in my hot tub or swim spa?

While chlorine and proper filtration will do a fantastic job of keeping your system clean, eventually, it will be necessary to fill the tub with new water. It is recommended that this maintenance be performed every 3-4 months.

Are hot tubs safe to use every day?

Yes, in fact, most studies show that not only is it safe and beneficial to use a hot tub every day but that most people who own a spa system end up using it much more often than they initially planned.
