    I'm thinking of purchasing a hot tub for my deck.
    Does anyone here have any experience? Is is a huge pain in the ass?
    My parents have a pool and when I lived with them the upkeep fell to me. Lots of skimming leaves/bugs, and testing the water. It got on my nerves.

    ...better to install a bathroom tub with jets imo hot tubs are a pita and a waste of money.

    Novelty at first, then wears off...Electric bill will rise and most {if not all} states require a plumbing and electrical permit which means taxes will go up

    I'm on my fifth. (live long enough...)

    The hard shell big boys are nice but cost quite a bit for quality, they require an electrician to run a 220v line and emergency cut off to where it will be positioned, and they're heavy and hard to move. Usually they stay with the house when sold because of that. When they break you have to have a guy come out and you have so much invested the cost-per-use is pretty high.

    The cheap plastic ones that cost $2K or so work ok but I've had two and both died early deaths. Bad overall value.

    The inflatable types are accidents waiting to happen but don't cost much.

    I went with a SoftTub currently. The negative is they don't have super powerful jets for hydrotherapy. But the pros are that they are light enough to just roll around when you feel like moving it, they only require a 110v/20 amp service (they plug in), they don't use much energy, and they hold their value like crazy, so if you keep it in good shape you can get a lot back for it if you decide you're bored with it. Also reliable, and easy to repair. You just mail the power pod thing back in or carry it to a local dealer. With big units someone has to make a house call. They start at $3,000 and go up to maybe $4500. Seems expensive but they won't ever break like an acrylic spa or a cheapo.

    Hot tubs become nothing but a steaming vat of human soup.
    If it's not the chemicals up in your ya-ya that infects you, it's all the bacteria left behind by others.

    Do a sauna instead. :D

    You ever swim? It's the same chemicals most of the time. Actually less of it, as a pool isn't as intensely filtered or monitored.

    A jetted spa tub of decent quality will cost the same as having a spa out on the deck when you factor in installation. You will be dumping 60 gallons of hot water you paid to heat up out every time you use it, you will have to keep the water running slightly to keep it from getting too cool, and nobody else in your home can take a shower for an hour after you use it.

    5 minutes reading how to keep the ph and alkalinity right, using chlorine, an oxyginator, and a frog stick (silver based antibacterial) instead of bromine and checking it twice a week with test strips and a two tablespoons of sanitizer and you will never have anything but perfect water. Besides walking outside it takes about 20 seconds.

    You also are unlikely to have a happenin' sex party in your bathroom. Wet breasts look amazing in the moonlight.

    I assume he means getting a permit will put this on record as an improvement, which will then increase your home value and thus your taxes. I think you'd have to be paying a pretty insane tax rate to have a hot tub increase your value enough to make a detectable difference on your tax bill, though. Unless maybe your home hasn't been assessed in a while and this triggers one, and then your home is re-assessed at a much higher value than you had been paying on. That happened to someone I know and they ended up doubling their taxes. They had been paying on the value of an assessment from many, many years ago and when a re-assement was triggered, the new value of the home was way higher.

    If you will be taking and sharing naked naughty pics of you and other hot females in this tub, than yes. If not, then no. It's not worth the trouble.

    That and any plumbing and electrical {I think most hot tubs are 220v} require permits and inspections by towns or cities to make sure they meet code

    I was leaning towards no after reading the previous comments, then your 'wet breasts' and moonlight comment made me lean towards yes.
