Are more jets better?

The Number Of Jets in a Hot Tub

So you are considering the purchase of a hot tub for your home and you have decided to visit a hot tub retailer. You walk up to a spa and either notice that it has a lot of jets or not very many at all. But what is the truth about jets in a hot tub? are more jets better? This post will explain the HotSpring Hot Tubs view and our reasoning behind this.

High jet count
It is very easy to assume that a load of jets means a great hot tubbing experience but this must be one the most common myths in the hot tub world. Why do you want a hot tub? Massages  are often one of the key buying points of purchasing a hot tub. However, do you want to be massaged by 30 of the same jet? It is very easy and inexpensive for a manufacturer to add simple jets to a hot tub, they simply drill a few more holes and add some jet bodies. But adding jets to add to the specification of a hot tub doesn’t shed any thought for the massage that a user could receive. It is, in short, thoughtless and unnecessary.

The other issue with having a high jet counts is that that this takes power away from a small concentrated amount of jets and spreads it between more, therefore creating a lot less focused massage for the hot tub user. So whilst you may be amazed by a hot tub with 120 jets, consider whether these additional jets are actually going to benefit you?


Quality not Quantity
This old saying can go a long way when it comes to hot tub jets. As mentioned above, it is not the amount of jets that produces a good massage, it is the right amount of jets but more importantly, a good verity and sets of jets. In terms of quality, many brands offer unique jets, none more unique and beneficial than the exclusive Hot Spring® Spas Moto-Massage® jet. This jet delivers two powerful jet streams and moves up and down your back to deliver the most amazing massage. This incredible jet is patented to HotSpring and can not be found on any other hot tub. Come and try it at one of our HotSpring South west and wales showrooms.

A great hot tub must have a variety of jets to allow a thorough full body massage. At HotSpring Southwest and Wales, we are lucky enough to be a Hot Spring retailer and the variety available within Hot Spring Spas is not only impressive, but very thoughtful and focused on the ultimate goal, relaxation. Variety can come with different sized jets, different rotation methods and potentially differing spray styles. Ensure any hot tub you purchase has a good variety of jets to allow a complete and fulfilling massage.

Overall, jets are important but it is definitely worth looking beyond the number of jets and worth investigating the quality of massage that a hot tub can offer.
