  1. Is a 2-Seater Spa Right For You?

If you don't have a big family, you might wonder if getting a hot tub is a good idea, since you won't have a crowd to fill a 6-seat or 12-seat spa like you see so often on TV shows and in the movies. In reality, a two-person hot tub might be the right solution for your household. If there's only one or two people who will be using it, a 2-seater makes sense. Is a smaller spa right for you?
