Let 2017 Be Your DIY Hot Tub Year!

Jan 9, 2017 | Building or Buying a Hot Tub

Happy New Year to all my readers and followers! It seems that the rumor mill is already buzzing with optimism in regards to the economy in the pool and spa industry for 2017. Many of the pool and spa industry gurus are predicting a banner year after the past few years of depressed sales. All industries have their ups and downs but not all industries are so closely tied to the economy as the pool and spa industry is. People just don’t buy luxury items when money is tight. Even the DIY spa guy or gal holds back on projects they may be considering. But the feast or famine cycle is already showing positive signs of being headed to the up slope of feast again.

What does that mean for those of you considering getting a pool, hot tub/spa, plunge pool or swim spa this year? It means the retailers will more likely be willing to give you better deals on their products. And, for those of you bitten by the DIY bug, the more stable economy could mean that now is the time to build that DIY hot tub, spa, plunge pool or swim spa you’ve always wanted!

For home owners, permanently installed units can, in many areas of the country, add equity value to your home, (unlike manufactured units which add little to no value). In addition, when you build a unit yourself, you get to build exactly what you what! You don’t have to settle for just what a retailer has available, which often forces you to pay for extras you don’t even want. That’s why I like to mention that DIY doesn’t just stand for Do It Yourself, it also means Do It Your way.

For 17 years now Custom Built Spas has been working hand to hand with the enthusiastic DIY community as well as some small business owners, teaching them the basic ins and outs of simple spa, hot tub, plunge pool and swim spa construction along with the mechanics associated with them. I know for a fact that these customers have saved thousands of dollars over store bought units just by deciding on building their own projects their way, (along with the FREE help provided by me during their project until it’s completed).
