The general lifespan of a hot tub has been a meaty subject for a while now. Although there are hot tubs that are cheap and don’t last long, a lot of people claim that they had their hot tub for well over a decade and they never had any problems with it. Of course, this isn’t a rule, and repairs are occasionally needed. Also, as many experts will point out, hot tubs have to be properly maintained before they can last for that long.

There are a lot of different materials that go into making a hot tub. Even though some hot tubs have a metal exterior, the shell might be cheap which generally leads to the tub being unusable after more than 5 years – especially if it’s not taken care of and cleaned properly.

Expensive hot tubs can be expected to last for more than 20 years. These are usually the ones that require less maintenance (but they still require it), and are built to last. As long as you take proper care of them, some of these hot tubs can last even longer than 20 years, although at that point it really depends on how well they were protected from temperature changes and other problems as well.  Places like Wind River Spas offer refurbished hot tubs Denver area that are just like brand new.
