How to Perfectly Place Your Hot Tub

When deciding on a location for your hot tub, many factors come into play. For instance, access to the changing room, privacy, hot tub view or landscaping. Here are a few tips on how to perfectly place your hot tub.


Before choosing the perfect spot consider whether you’ll be installing your hot tub inside or outside. If installing your hot tub indoors, you’ll need to take a couple of extra steps for proper ventilation. Otherwise, the moisture can damage your walls and flooring.

For hot tub installation, see your model configurations. You’ll also need a professional electrician to install the power supply and adapt your breaker box.

Most importantly, make sure you have enough room for easy access in and around the hot tub for maintenance. Since most hot tubs have an equipment access panel, make sure the panel is able to open fully.

Whether putting your tub on a deck or concrete patio, choose a firm foundation. Try to select a location that will integrate with the design of the spa.

Comfort and Privacy

Find a place near the back door so that you can have easy access in and out of the hot tub. Your guests will appreciate the accessibility on a cold, rainy night or for changing out of their swimsuits.

For those using the hot tub for mostly relaxation and quiet, you may wish to choose a secluded spot. By adding some lattice or a gazebo, you can provide more shelter and privacy.


Design your backyard and garden around the spa, by adding a few shrubs or planters around the hot tub for a more enchanting experience.
