What to consider before you buy a hot tub in Los Angeles

Hot tubs are a popular feature in many Los Angeles homes. They provide a place to socialize with friends and family or relax and enjoy the city’s Mediterranean climate. Before buying a hot tub in LA, consider available features, energy efficiency, installation, maintenance and the warranty plan.

  • Features: Jets and therapy features are best for those who want a hot tub to relax or relieve joint and muscle pain. Some people opt for LED lights, audio systems and remote control systems if they plan to use the hot tub to entertain guests. Saltwater systems and self-regulating systems reduce the amount of required maintenance for a hot tub.
  • Energy efficiency: Hot tubs with better energy efficiency cost less to operate and put less strain on the environment. Generally, higher quality hot tubs with insulated shells are more energy efficient and better at maintaining water temperature. The size of the hot tub and how often you use it are also factors.
  • Installation: Ask the dealer about any issues that could come up during delivery and installation. Portable, above ground units are easier to install than inground spas, which often require plumbing and electrical work.
  • Maintenance: Hot tub maintenance is required to make sure your tub is clean and that the water is properly pH-balanced. You should clean your filter about once a month and drain and clean the tub a few times each year.
  • Warranty: Hot tubs and spas usually come with a manufacturer's warranty that covers the structure, shell and other components. Compare warranties to see what each manufacturer covers and for how long.

Hot tub regulations in Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles County requires homeowners to obtain a permit for a pool or spa more than 24 inches deep — ask the company that installs your hot tub if it assists with permitting paperwork. Los Angeles County’s hot tub codes require anti-entrapment grates and fencing or glazing walls around any structure that contains more than 18 inches of water.

California law requires homeowners to equip pools and spas with specific safety features, including a fence or cover, to protect against accidental drowning. According to the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, zoning and building codes require inground spas to have a cover with a manual or power-operated reel system.

Los Angeles hot tub FAQ

Can I heat my hot tub with solar panels?
Yes, it is possible to heat your hot tub with solar panels. Heating a hot tub with solar panels is eco-friendly, and it’s usually less expensive over time. It’s possible to convert an electrical hot tub to a solar-powered hot tub.
Can hot tubs help you lose weight?
Soaking in a hot tub doesn’t automatically burn very many calories, but hot tubs do reduce stress and help muscle recovery. Relieving stress and muscle pain helps you live a healthier lifestyle.
How much space do swim spas need?
A swim spa is usually around 14 feet long and 6.5 feet wide, so make sure you have sufficient space for the swim spa and some area around it.
What is the average cost of a swim spa?
Swim spas cost between $8,000 and $30,000, depending on the size and selected features.
