3 Things to Consider Before Situating Your Hot Tub

Have you ever been in someone’s home that had their furniture or appliances arranged in odd places? Maybe they had a chair situated next to a door so that your knee got whacked whenever someone entered the room. Or a dresser might have been alongside the bed so that the drawers couldn’t be pulled all the way out. Putting things in a place that makes them easy to use and doesn’t disturb the functionality of it is important. This can be said about any object in your home, including your hot tub. The only way that you’re going to feel that you’re getting the proper use out of it and not start to look at it as more of an inconvenience than a luxury is proper placement.

A hot tub is a big object. And after it has been filled with water it is also extremely heavy. Not planning ahead of time can lead to installing it wherever it will fit, and that is going to make you eventually regret buying it. But if you take your time from the moment that you decide to buy a hot tub and plan out the perfect place for it, then you’ll be able to get the maximum enjoyment out of it for years.

Delivering Your Hot Tub

One thing that you absolutely have to keep in mind is the delivery. At Texas Hot Tub Company we help you get everything set up. But if you choose a spot on the back of your property and down a wooded path, we might not be able to get it there for you. Be sure that the spot you have picked out is accessible. This is not only important at the time of delivery, but it also will be a concern if you need to have it serviced later.

Safety and Maintenance

Putting a hot tub that weighs a few thousand pounds on your thirty-year-old deck might not be the best idea. Especially if you don’t put any additional support on it. The last thing that you want is for your spa to bust through the wood while you or your loved one are in it. Sign up for a consultation and let us evaluate your spot ahead of time.

Looking into the future is a good idea before installation. You have to remember that there will come times that you’ll have to add chemicals, change filters, or drain the water. You don’t want to put you hot tub in a place that is going to make it difficult to do those things.


Where you place your hot tub could have a huge impact on how often you use it. Are you going to have to tread across gravel in your bare feet to get to it? Is the lighting bright enough to use it at night? These are all things to consider. Placing your spa closer to your door makes it much easier to get to than if you put it on the other side of your yard. You’ll probably get a lot more use out of it, too. And since it was a big investment you really don’t want to see it become a forgotten item.

At Texas Hot Tub Company we help people make these decisions all the time. Call us and make an appointment. We can survey your property and help you make the right choice! You can also visit us on the website and schedule a consultation.
