There are a few things that we should when we choose the proper bath tub. As an example, we should check under the hood to make sure that the tub has the proper materials and construction quality. This should determine how long our bath tub would last. Maintenance and other long-term costs would need to be included in the upkeep. Dealers should be asked for proper product brochures. The manufacturer’s website should provide details how the tub was made and what types of materials were used. In this case, we should make sure that rock sold construction process was employed and there’s a proper warranty protection.
The shell of the bath tub should be made from more durable materials that has been rigorously tested. As an example, we could choose tub with pearl metalescent finishes that are laminated over. Bath tub material should also be resistant to cracking, chemical exposure and UV light. There should be a trusted warranty to ensure that our investment can be properly protected. Some manufacturers are confident enough to provide 7-year warranty for the products. We should be wary of lifetime warranties, because they could be limited to such extent that we are unable to reclaim for damages and defects. Avoid tub with wooden components because they will turn moldy and dark.
For lower maintenance, we could choose cabinets that ae made from rigid polymers but embossed to look like wood. This material should provide high durability, while retaining an overall good look. Warranty for cabinets should be at least five years. After we are sure how our spa system should work and installed, it is important that we would have low monthly and annual costs. Compared to built-in spas, portable spas are often found to be much more efficient and use less energy. The insulation performance of the spa system could become one of the determinants of annual operating costs. Improper insulation could cause lost of energy and higher costs.
When choosing a bath tub, we should know that we get what we pay for. Reputable dealers don’t always offer low-cost products, especially if they are known to provide high degree of quality. In the end, we could end up paying a lot more for inferior and cheap products. The vendor should be able to provide us with proper cost estimates in writing. The track record of the manufacturer should also be known and it is important to discover how long the manufacturer has been selling their products in the market. A reliable manufacturer won’t provide us with meaningful warranty and we could end up losing too much money.
