Does Quality Matter? (not always)
There’s a time and place for lemonade
There’s nothing inherently wrong with “cheaping out” when it makes sense to do so. Buying a cheap new hot tub might be good enough if the buyer doesn’t care about comfort, performance, reliability and longevity for whatever reason.
Someone might be selling their house in the very near future. The film industry might need a hot tub for a scene they’re shooting. A developer might promote their properties by including a hot tub. Hot tubs are sometimes used as a “suggested lifestyle” staging prop for a show home. And some people just like shiny new things and don’t really care about the long term.
In cases like these, a buyer may be more concerned about “bling” and bottom-dollar pricing than they do about value, performance and longevity.
There’s nothing wrong with that as long as they understand what they’re doing and are willing to accept the consequences of their choice. I’ll occasionally buy something from the dollar store knowing full well it’s an inferior product, but it doesn’t matter. However, when it comes to significant purchases, expensive ventures and long-term investments, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of quality.
When quality matters, it’s important to understand what quality actually means when it comes to hot tubs. Aesthetics, spec sheets and special features may contribute to the decision-making process but those things have next to nothing to do with the quality of a product.
