When looking for the best hot tub brands, a lot of people ask which spa brands they should avoid. Here are a few things to look out for when comparing hot tub brands.
Hot Springs is one of the older names in the business, and sells a huge volume of hot tubs in North America. Hot Springs Spas made the push in the last 3 years to really transform what the traditional hot tub design looks like. With the help of the acclaimed BMW design group they redesigned the high end Hot Springs Highlife Series models and created the NXT spas in 2015. In 2018 they redesigned their Limelight series with a much needed refresh. From all accounts the new Lime lights from whirlpool spas hot tubs have been selling like crazy. With Hot Springs you might pay a little more but their constant iteration of design and elegance will always make them one of the top brands in the business.
You can’t have a top 5 list of hot tub brands without Jacuzzi; they pretty much invented the product category. The Jacuzzi brothers pioneered the hydrotherapy pump system way back in 1956, when hot tubs were just wine barrels. Today they continue to produce world class spas, and their new j-500 series designer spa is one of the best looking hot tubs on the market right now.
Bullfrog Spas has not been around nearly as long as some of the other hot tub brands on this list but they well deserve. This Utah based spa manufacturer started up in 1996 and quickly made its mark on the industry for its innovative take on hot tub jetting systems. Having patented the JetPack Bullfrog made it possible for hot tub customers to basically build their own spa hydrotherapy experience. Each spa has Jetpack consisting of a different jetting system; these Jetpacks can be taken out and moved from seat to seat, or upgraded for different Jetpacks as new styles are released.
