Preparing For A Spa Installation

How Do You Prepare a Site to Have a Spa Installed?

If you are looking to install a spa at your home, there are a number of different things that you want to keep in mind. First off, you want to know how to prepare the area that you want to install the spa. In this article, we’re going to take a look at how you can do that and what steps you need to take in order to make sure that the area that you’ve chosen is ready for your spa installation.

First off, there are four major things that you need to remember when you’re trying to pick out a spot for your spa to go. The installation area for your spa needs to be, at the least, 10 feet far from any overhead power lines, and no less than 5 feet away from where the pipes are going to be installed.  A solid, level establishment needs to be arranged for the hot tub to sit.  Any release of water ought to be installed far from the hot tub. For support purposes, you will need to leave additional space so that an individual can get to the engine and pump without having to squeeze into a tight area. These four things are paramount, and if you don’t plan them out, you will find it difficult to use and/or maintain your spa.

Before the installation truck arrives, your obligation is to set up the site. Whether the spa will be installed inside or outside, you're going to need to estimate that as a completely filled hot tub with three individuals is going to weigh around a ton. On the off chance that the zone is not solid or that it is uneven, the tub is at risk for harm. If the site preparations are not where they should be, any warranty that you have on the spa will be invalidated if any harm happens to it because of that. 

Generally speaking, most hot tubs are put outside. If that is the situation, there are a couple of options that you have to provide a firm, level surface. Before we get to that, we should discuss the fact that you also need a level area to walk around your hot tub. The reason you need to have enough room in your spa setup to have an edge walkway is to eliminate little bits of debris that can fall into the spa when people are trying to get in and out of the top. You can add this onto the build later on; simply verify the extra room is incorporated from the start.

Then, you will want to make sure that the area is level. You can use a leveler to get this done, or you can get some help from the installation company so that you don’t have to risk hurting yourself during the process. You also may want to make sure that there are bushes, plants, or other types of blockades available around the area, one for privacy, and two so that you can block off any influence from the wind. That way, you can keep your spa nice and warm and you don’t have to worry about people checking out what you’re doing.

Once you’re sure that you have a spot level and ready to go, you can have your spa installed! It’s really an easy process, and once you figure out where you want to put it.
