Quality Comes With a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Warranty
Though a critically important aspect of a hot tub purchase, hot tub warranties are often over-looked. A hot tub is a major investment so you should make certain that your investment is well protected during its lifetime.
Hot tub warranties are one of the most critical areas in the hot tub industry. You want your portable hot tub to bring you joy and rejuvenation for many years to come! Keep in mind the following guidelines:
A product warranty is a performance and reliability agreement between you and the manufacturer. Avoid hot tub manufacturers who add prorated and deductible provisions. Make sure you read the manufacturer’s warranty before buying, and compare coverage with other hot tubs you are considering.
Closely inspect your hot tub warranty; in other words, be sure to read the fine print. Most hot tub warranties will cover the shell, cabinetry, plumbing, equipment, and controls. Typically, you will find the following hot tub warranty categories:
- Shell – protects against structural damage or cracks that cause water loss
- Exterior Shell Surface – protects the shell surface against blistering, peeling, cracking, fading, or delaminating
- Plumbing – protects against leaks in plumbing components
- Equipment – protects the equipment and controls in the hot tub
Be sure your local dealer has a service relationship with the hot tub manufacturer. You want a dealer that will not only stands behind the product, but will also provide technical support if needed. Finally, remember that a warranty is only as good as the manufacturer’s ability to stand behind it.
