How to choose a hot tub in Indianapolis

Indianapolis Skyline

Hot tubs can work like a wonder drug: Buoyancy eases the pressure on joints and tendons, and heat stimulates blood flow and eases muscle strain. Therapeutic jets provide massage and encourage the release of pain-killing endorphins. Studies suggest that soaking in a hot tub can also relieve stress, lower blood pressure, reduce arthritis pain, promote weight loss and treat symptoms from medical conditions such as fibromyalgia.

A quality hot tub in Indianapolis can cost from $3,000 to $20,000, depending on the features, how many people it seats and the materials used for the shell. Common materials include:

  • Vinyl: While vinyl is an inexpensive and lightweight material, it’s also easily damaged and not energy efficient.
  • Rotomolded plastic: Rotomolded plastic is a common material for hot tubs. It’s affordable and durable, but rotomolded shells won’t hold heat as well as other materials.
  • Acrylic: Acrylic is one of the most popular materials for hot tub shells because it’s durable and holds water heat well—especially when used with a foam liner.

If your doctor prescribes a swimming pool to help with a medical condition, it’s possible your insurance will cover the cost of a small, therapeutic tub. Check with your insurance provider to see if your coverage will help pay for a hot tub.

Installing a hot tub in Indianapolis

Similar to swimming pools, the City of Indianapolis and Marion County regulate hot tub construction and require a permit for any in-ground or above-ground pool deeper than 18 inches or wider than 15 feet. The regulations also specify where a hot tub can be placed. As a rule of thumb, a hot tub needs:

  • A flat space in the yard, at least 10 feet from overhead power lines and five feet from the tub's electric panels
  • Proper drainage for water that splashes over the side
  • For larger hot tubs, a dedicated 240-volt circuit protected with a ground fault circuit interrupter to minimize electrocution risk

Installing a hot tub can be complicated, and having it professionally installed can save you from future problems and protect your new purchase. Many dealers in Indianapolis have hot tubs technicians that can install your hot tub for you and ensure it complies with local codes.

Your dealer may also be able to provide ongoing maintenance for your hot tub, but if you choose to do the maintenance yourself, ask your dealer for tips and see if the company does free water testing to check chemical levels.
