Having a Turbo Spa can be a dream come true for many homeowners. However, a key element to having an enjoyable experience with your new hot tub is selecting the right location. Choosing the right place to put your hot tub will ensure ease of use, ease of maintenance, and desired comfort and privacy.
Ease of Maintenance
It’s important to make sure your hot tub placement will allow for the proper access needed for maintenance. When draining your tub, for example, you’ll need access to the hose spigot on your hot tub to attach a garden hose for drainage, so it’s important to make sure this won’t be blocked by your placement. Because so much water will be drained, it’s also important that you’ll be able to bring the hose to a safe spot, such as a driveway or curb drain to allow the water to flow into the street to avoid flooding your yard. Also, pay particular attention to whether or not your location would leave adequate space for accessing the operation panel, as putting this side of the hot tub up against an existing wall or structure means that it won’t be easily accessible for maintenance.
Ease of Use
You also want to consider ease of use with your hot tub placement. Locating the new tub near the side or back entrance of your home will encourage more frequent use, especially in colder climates. It’s also important to make sure there’s adequate room for steps so that occupants to easily enter and exit the tub. Will your hot tub placement allow for the privacy or shade you want? Determining this prior to your hot tub’s delivery and installation will be much easier than trying to change its placement later.
Is there enough space along the path to your backyard to accommodate the delivery of your tub? In order to ensure a smooth, hassle-free delivery, it’s important to survey your space and consider its accessibility for the purposes of delivery. If the path from the street to your spa is clear, the delivery will be easier. 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.
The Importance of Hot Tub Dimensions
The last thing you want is to realize upon delivery that you’ve selected a tub that is too large for your available space. It’s important to become familiar with standard hot tub dimensions so that you can select the right turbo spa and ensure a perfect fit! Within every sizing category, there are varying length, width, and height options, so it’s important to check with your hot tub dealer to determine the exact dimensions of the model you’re interested in. Keep in mind the limitations of your space as you plan (do you only have a corner area available in your backyard, for example?), then measure and mark off the space you’ve selected for your new tub to help you to better visualize how it will look once in place.
