Buying a hot tub is full of exciting decisions, and one of the most important questions you’ll ask yourself is “where is the best place to install my hot tub?” Fortunately, Texas Hot Tub Company knows a thing or two about installing your dream spa. But, the ultimate installation site is up to you. Here are a few options to consider when planning the delivery and installation of your brand new hot tub.
Designing an Indoor Spa
Having a hot tub installed indoors is no small feat. It can be a good option if you don’t have the yard space or desire complete privacy, but you’ll need to prep the room by:
- Installing a drain – Unless you have a saltwater spa, you’ll need to drain and refill your hot tub every 3 to 4 months.
- Create Ventilation – Moisture will build up quickly in an enclosed room. To avoid mildew issues, make sure your spa room has plenty of air flow.
- Consider your flooring – Each time you exit your spa, water will inevitably follow you. Install a flooring option like concrete that won’t become damaged by water.
Creating an Outdoor Oasis
Installing a hot tub in the great outdoors is probably the best place if that will work for your needs. You’ll be able to relax in nature and maintenance will be extra convenient as you’ll have the room to access your filter, plumbing, heater, and pump.
Most people place their hot tub on a concrete slab, but a deck is also another fabulous option. It can save some yard space, while still maintaining the easy access for servicing. Have a contractor confirm that your deck will hold the weight of your hot tub. Also, make sure that you will still have the clearance you need to reach plumbing for maintenance.
