Before You Begin Your Hot Tub Shopping

Adding a hot tub to your space requires careful thought and consideration. Before you even start shopping, you’ll want to consider these important factors.

 

Size and Space

To maximize your hot tub experience, you will want to choose the right size for your space. Measure the total space where you will be placing your hot tub (usually on your patio, porch or deck) so you can see the overall dimensions and placement options. Next, measure the maximum amount of space your hot tub can take up within the overall space including measurements for the walking around the perimeter, placement and use of accessories (cover, steps, etc), and also allowing adequate access for repairs and maintenance.

 

Access and Installation

Is the space where you will be adding your hot tub ready for placement or will you need to add a concrete pad or platform prior to installation? Is the area easily accessible for installation or will you require special equipment? You will need a hard, flat surface that can accommodate the total assembled weight of the hot tub (product, equipment, water, and combined weight of users).

 

Additional Pre-Installation Considerations

You will want to check with your state, local, and neighborhood in regards to applicable plumbing, electrical, and building codes. You may also need to place a request and obtain a permit from your homeowners association. Even if you plan on not allowing anyone but yourself to use your hot tub, you may still need to implement safety measures to restrict access and help prevent accidents.
