Your local building surveyor will give you the requirements for proper support of your hot tub on a wood deck. The average sized hot tub filled with water can weigh more than the car in your driveway. It must be supported properly to ensure a safe and reliable installation.
We recommend that you install your hot tub outside on a concrete pad. But if you do decide to install it in the home, ensure that your contractor provides proper ventilation according to your local building code. If you sink the spa into decking make sure you can remove the side panels in order to gain access to the spa’s inner working parts in the event you need to replace components.
Plan your privacy
Look at the direction you will be facing, from neighbouring windows, doors, trees or fences. Your hot tub location is very important to optimise your privacy and provide a relaxing environment for you and your family.
