Can You Trust A Chinese Manufactured Hot Tub

Updated: Nov 11, 2023

As a hot tub supplies distributor, Aqua Warehouse understands the concerns many traders may have about investing in a Chinese manufactured hot tub. In fact, most dealers of North American Hot Tubs won’t even stock Chinese spas in their showrooms.

But the truth is, not everyone has the budget for a high spec hot tub. While we won’t necessarily sing the praises of all Chinese spas, this blog will look objectively into Chinese made hot tubs and whether it’s worth purchasing one from a wholesale hot tub supplier.

Are hot tubs made in China good?

Not all hot tubs built in china are bad. But that doesn’t mean they’re all good either. When China first began manufacturing hot tubs, they were of poor quality and created with components that did not meet the industry standard. Most wholesale hot tub suppliers had previously avoided them entirely due to their tendency to break down or become highly unsafe.

While badly built Chinese hot tubs do still exist, they are also far better than they used to be. In fact, most wholesale hot tub suppliers are able to invest in high quality spas that use the same parts as American built hot tubs. What’s more, they are often cheaper than their American counterparts, allowing them to pass on the savings to their customers.

Finding a good wholesale hot tub supplier

While it’s not true that all Chinese hot tubs are bad, it's arguable that most bad hot tubs are Chinese. So how can you find a good wholesale hot tub supplier? Make sure to stick with a wholesale hot tub supplier who has been trading for a number of years and is offering after-sales support.

As a hot tub supplies distributor, we currently work with hot tub dealerships who stock both Chinese and US manufactured spas. We personally recommend Reef Spas. Reef Spas are proud to offer a wide selection of the best affordable hot tubs. Each tub has been hand selected by our team of experts to ensure you get a high quality spa, without the luxury price tag.


While it’s understandable to have reservations about investing in Chinese spas, it’s safe to say that times are changing. We believe that doing your research into the wholesale hot tub supplier is a great way to protect your investment and ensure the spas are of high quality for your customers.
