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 spa retailer. You walk up to a hot tub 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? The more the merrier? Quality not quantity? This post will explain the Happy Hot Tubs view and our reasoning behind this. 

Jets Galore

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? Massage is probably one of the most common reasons but do you want to be blasted with 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 mass of jets 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 500 jets, consider whether these additional jets are actually going to benefit you or are they simply part of a sales spiel? 

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 quality set 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. Come and try it at one of our South Coast showrooms (
A great hot tub must have a variety of jets to allow a thorough full body massage. At Happy Hot Tubs, 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. If you want a hot tub and are based in Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire or Sussex in the UK, pop along to and go Hot Spring today!
