There are few things more delightful and rewarding than slipping into your own outdoor hot tub at your own OVK Skåne. Feeling the warm bubbling waters relax every muscle in your body is the ultimate way to unwind after a stressful day of work, enjoy the company of your closest friends, or just rest on your day off. But before you start enjoying the joys of hydrotherapy with your own spa, there are a couple of important things to consider:
Your hot tub installation site
You may have a good idea of where you would like to place your hot tub installation. A shady corner in the backyard, on the patio near the barbeque, sunken into a deck, or under a gazebo – there are as many options as there are backyards. The view from your hot tub installation should promote a sense of relaxation and calm. If you plan to use your hot tub for family gatherings and parties, be sure to leave space around it.
Find a spot that gives you some privacy, and shelters your hot tub from nasty weather and strong winds. You’ll enjoy soaking in your hot tub more often if the spa installation is protected from the weather. It also helps reduce operation and maintenance costs. You should plan on using your hot tub cover, to keep leaves and debris out of your hot tub and to maintain the water’s heat.
Practical advice includes making sure your hot tub installation will not be within 10 feet of overhead power lines. You will also need to determine the best foundation for your hot tub installation – a synthetic spa pad, wood decking with a concrete foundation or a concrete pad. All of your options should take into account the weight of the spa with water and people in it!
Before your new spa installation takes place, you need to be sure you have an electrical source to power the motor. The ideal spot should have good drainage. That is, water should flow away from your hot tub installation when it rains. And it should be easy to access the motor and pump, so that regular maintenance can be performed easily.
Planning for hot tub installation day
Don’t forget to check your spa’s dimensions when you plan for delivery. Include widths of gates, doors and sidewalks for passage to the hot tub installation site. Your hot tub dealer will be happy to help you with planning for delivery.
If you need detailed information on how to get your hot tub delivered and how your tub should be installed, contact your dealer for the specific information. Get as many of the details as possible. You don’t want to make a costly mistake, if you specify the wrong information.
