5 Tips for Finding the Perfect Spot to Install Your Hot Tub

Now that you’ve found the best hot tub for you and your family, your spa-searching journey is almost complete! It is the right time to find the absolute perfect spot to install your hot tub, ensuring you enjoy the most convenience, unbeatable relaxation, and aesthetically-pleasing hot tub ownership experience ever.

Install Your Hot Tub where the Party Is

When you’re looking for the perfect spot to set up your hot tub, it requires a bit more consideration than planting it in a random spot out back. For instance, if you plan on regularly entertaining in your hot tub, you’ll want to consider which location is convenient for you and your guests. Perhaps near your outdoor kitchen, or close to your backdoor. This makes it easy to hop out, serve a plate, and slip right back into your spa!

Drain, Clean, Fill

Another thing to consider is how easy it will be to fill your hot tub from your desired location. Hot tub’s will need to be drained and refilled three to four times a year. Installing your hot tub close to your water supply will make this necessary maintenance task MUCH easier. You’ll also want your chemicals to be stored safely nearby, just to make your weekly balancing quick and convenient.

Take in the View

Since your hot tub is a place you’ll sit and relax, having a great view is a definite perk. If you already have a garden or focal point in your yard, try to position your hot tub to face your beautiful setting. Still planning your landscaping? That’s okay, too! Keep your hot tub in mind as you bring your gardening visions to life — creating a one-of-a-kind spa retreat right in your own backyard.

It’s Electric!

Did you know that your hot tub will need to be plugged in? Most hot tubs run using 220V, which may require the assistance of an electrician to format your outdoor outlet. As you find the best spot to install your spa, remember it will need to be close enough to a source of power in order to run.  

Install Your Hot Tub In or Out

One of the best things about a hot tub is that it can be installed inside your home with the proper room considerations. While it does pose a larger challenge for delivery and set up, it can also make for a more private, next-level relaxation zone. The perfect spot to install your hot tub indoors should feature:

  • Easy water access and floor drain for those seasonal drains and refills.
  • Water resistant floors, walls, and ceilings to prevent water damage and mold.
  • A ventilation system to help control moisture buildup. 
  • A strong foundation for supporting the heavy unit.
