What’s Important To Know About Hot Tub Seats?

Hot tub seats are like office chairs. Some are comfortable, some aren’t. Some are ergonomically designed while others seem to be beautiful but not functional. If you’ve spent much time in an office chair, you know that the seat really does matter.

At Caldera Spas, here’s what’s important to us:


Caldera Spas seats have a deep well that cradles you comfortably and places your bottom lower than your knees. That design decompresses your spine and keeps you aligned while in a seated position. That helps relieve the pressure from parts of the body that experience weight and the effects of gravity all day long.


Our hot tubs are designed in a way to keep the water’s buoyancy and the jet power from floating you out of the seat. That’s especially important for people of smaller stature. There’s also a foot ridge unique to Caldera spas that keeps you in your seat even when the jets are on high so that you can relax and enjoy the massage. After all, it’s difficult to relax if you’re using muscles to keep yourself stable in the moving water.


Does the spa you’re considering have a variety of seat types? Many models offer several types of seats, including a lounge. You’ll need to decide what’s important to you and your family.

Jet Placement

Ask yourself where you need relief. Does the seat have jets located where they’ll work your tired lower back, neck, calf muscles, hamstrings or even your feet? Some do and some don’t.


If possible, test out the hot tub before you buy so that you can experience the feel of the seat and the jets. If you’re not able to conduct an actual test, at least spend a little time sitting in a dry spa to help you decide if it’s the “right fit.” for you.
