While every hot tub has jets, not all jets are created equal. But how can you tell the difference and decide which jets are what you need? Here’s everything you need to know about hot tub jets to help with your dream hot tub search.
Quality Trumps Quantity with Hot Tub Jets
A general rule of thumb to abide by when it comes to hot tub jets is to know that more isn’t always better. Many other brands tout that they have great hot tubs because there are a ton of jets. Then you try that hot tub and, well, those jets feel like they’re barely making an impact instead of massaging you. That doesn’t sound very relaxing, does it?
With a Wellis® hot tub, you’ll never have a spa experience that is underrated. You’ll have a hot tub with high-quality jets designed to target pain points and deliver the very best hydrotherapy experience and health benefits.
Also, you’ll find that some spa seats may look like they have fewer jets than others, but this is intentional. That seat either has a more targeted, powerful massage, or it may be a “cool-down” seat for someone who may not be in the mood for a hydromassage. Again, the quality of the jets in those seats matters more than the number.
Which Hot Tub Jets Do What and Where
You’re also going to want to look at the variety of jets offered in a hot tub. Each jet has its own purpose and how it helps your body.
Fixed jets have a targeted, straighter flow and provide a more intense, deeper massage to stiffer parts of your body.
Rotating jets have more of a rolling, twisting flow and provide a gentler, wider massage that is good for helping your body relax and unwind.
Jet placement also matters. For example, if you have more pain in your back or legs, see if the hot tub you’re interested in has seats with jets in those targeted areas.
You’ll want to be sure that your jets are adjustable, and not just on the control panel but for each jet itself. That way, you can customize your massage to your needs.
How to Find the Right Hot Tub Jets for You
First, decide what kind of hydrotherapy massage you want and need, as this will determine which jets your hot tub has. At Wellis New England, we have information on which jets do what jobs and the level of power they have. This will help narrow down your options between models.
You’ll also want to do a few test soaks in some of our premium hot tubs to try out the different jets and compare. This is the fun part! Which jets do you prefer? Do you like one over the other?
If you’re still not sure which jets you should choose, feel free to ask a Wellis New England staff member for suggestions. As experts in all things Wellis spas, they can help match you with the right hot tub (and jets, too). Reach out to us to schedule your test soak in our beautiful showroom in Brookfield, Connecticut.
