You may think that selecting your new hot tub is the exciting final step towards ownership; however, before you can enjoy your new turbo spa, it’s essential to make adequate hot tub preparation in your existing space.
Location, Location, Location!
Paramount to an enjoyable experience with your new hot tub is the right location. Locating the new tub near the side or back entrance of your home will encourage more frequent use, especially in colder climates (after all, very few people will want to endure a long trek through freezing temps while wearing swimming attire). It will also make the filling and emptying your tub much more accessible.
It’s also important to measure and mark off the space for your new tub to help you to visualize better how it will look once in place. Make sure there’s adequate room for steps and occupants to enter and exit the tub easily. Pay attention to whether your plan would leave sufficient space for accessing the operation panel. Putting this side of the hot tub up against an existing wall or structure means that it won’t be easily accessible for maintenance.
Is there enough space along the path to your backyard to accommodate the delivery of your tub? To ensure smooth, hassle-free delivery, it’s important to survey your space and consider its accessibility for delivery. If the path from the street to your spa is clear, the delivery will be more comfortable. However, if the path is more restricted, it’s important to clear enough space or ask your dealer if they have the proper equipment, such as a crane, to lift your new hot tub into place if ground delivery isn’t possible.
A Sound Foundation
A hot tub needs a solid platform for safe placement and should never be installed on dirt or grass. When filled, a hot tub can weigh anywhere from 2,000 to 8,000 pounds. If you plan to install your tub on existing deck space, have an engineer or contractor look at your deck to make sure that it can accommodate this amount of weight before your new tub is delivered.
