The 9 to 10-Person Hot Tub: What, Where, When, and Why
So you’re looking for a large hot tub, but you’re not sure how large is large enough, and you aren’t sure where to start your search. Let’s talk about some important details that might help you navigate this hot tub buying process.
10-Person Hot Tub Dimensions
A nine to ten-person spa falls into the large spa category. This matters because spas change significantly when they are intended to comfortably seat a large number of users. On average, the dimensions you’re considering are going to be somewhere around 100 inches wide by 100 inches long.
However, most spas of this size are rectangular rather than square, so in most cases you would need to subtract inches from one side and add to the other. For instance, 10 inches from the width makes the length 110 inches and the width 90 inches, and so on.
In this way, the dimensions are completely dependent on the hot tub manufacturer and model you choose.
How Many Gallons in a 10-Person Hot Tub?
On average, a ten-person one is going to hold close to 600+ gallons of water. This is important to consider because it’ll add more weight to the spa, which we cover next.
How Much does a 10-Person Hot Tub Weigh?
Depending on the gallons of water you keep in your spa, and how many people are sitting in it regularly, your ten-person spa could range from 1,200 lbs. (dry) to 8,000+ lbs (filled with water and people). There are so many factors that go into the weight of a hot tub. Is it solid material or inflatable? Aluminum or steel? Plastic or wood? How much is it insulated? What about pipes and water and people?
The key here is to know what type of spa you want and learn which manufacturer makes the options or processes that will be of the most value to you.
Make sure you have a solid foundation to place a spa of this size on such as a thick concrete pad or reinforced deck, and check with an engineer before installing to make sure your spot will support the weight of the spa.
9 to 10-Person Hot Tub Layouts
The layout for a 10-person hot tub is probably going to come in one of two common options. The shape is likely rectangular, with four seats down each side of the length and then an additional one on either end. Alternatively, a spa of this size could be slightly offset with four seats on each side of the length, and then a lounger seat on one end, a dual lounger on one end, or a single lounger on each end.
10-Person Hot Tub Prices
Depending on the options and accessories you choose, a ten-person spa will start in the range of $8,000 and go up as high as $25,000 or more. When you’re making a decision this costly, it’s important to remember that more pumps equal more power, more jets mean better massage options, and if you can change out your JetPaks, your possibilities are endless.
For this category of hot tub, the most important factors that might drive up the price will inevitably be quality, functionality, and reliability. They say you get what you pay for and in this case, that’s very true. A few factors to look at will be the base, frame, and shell. What are they made of, and how well will they hold up in the long term? Is the spa well insulated? How much plumbing does the pump have to run, and how many pumps are running your system? What type of cover is available for the spa of your dreams, and does it insulate against cold or inclement weather? Does it have a warranty? What type?
Since you are looking for a hot tub of significant size, it’s exceptionally important that you make sure you’re getting a high-quality spa, so pay attention to all the manufacturing details.
