    Pros and cons of 2-person hot tubs

    Pros:Small hot tubs are more affordable because less material is used to construct them. They also use less energy because they have a smaller pump, heater and filtration system. Two-person hot tubs are easier to maintain because less cleaning solution, sanitizing chemicals and time are needed to drain, clean and refill the tubs.

    Because of their size, 2-person hot tubs are more adaptable to a variety of spaces. They can be a great choice for smaller homes, or for singles or couples without children who want to take advantage of the benefits of therapeutic soaking.

    Cons: While there are many pros to the smaller size, 2-person tubs aren’t the right choice for everybody. Because of their limited size, soaking space can feel cramped even with just two people in the tub. It might be hard to recline or change positions as often as you want with more than one person in the tub.

    Smaller hot tubs are typically built with 100v pumps and heaters, which makes the heating process slower than larger tubs. Fewer water jets means a lesser level of massage for your muscles, bones and nerves compared to bigger hot tubs, reducing the therapeutic benefits.

    Two-person hot tubs are normally made of materials durable enough for their size, but less durable than those used for bigger spas. This makes them less resistant to wear and tear damage and, as a result, they tend to yield a shorter lifespan.
