Preparing for Your New Hot Tub

You have taken the plunge and
decided to get a hot tub. However, you didn’t stop to think about all the steps
that were going to be involved in having it placed at your home. Have no fear,
Coast Spas Reviews will provide you with all the details you need to be ready
for the arrival of your new hot tub.

Location

As with anything at your home, you
are going to want to pick the perfect place for your new spa. There are many
things that you are going to want to consider. First off, you want to make sure
that the location that you choose will provide you with enough privacy when you
are using it. There is nothing worse than having neighbors watching you have a
soak in your spa. Next, you are going to want to make sure that the location
does not interrupt the flow of the backyard.

To best visualize the location, get
some markers, and mark off the spot. Look at the site from different angles. If
you are not happy with the placement, try another location. Once you have
picked out the perfect place, you will be ready to move on to the next step.

Preparation

You are going to want to prepare the
site to receive the spa. It is essential to keep in mind that a spa with water
and people can weigh up to 10,000 pounds (4,500kg). For this reason, you are
going to want to make sure the site is adequately prepared. Make sure the ground
is level and packed firmly. You are not going to want your spa to shift due to
improper preparation.

Electrical/Gas

Depending on what kind of spa you
are getting, you are going to need to assure that the power source is routed to
the site location. Unless you are licensed in this field, you are going to want
to hire a professional to do this for you. Make sure you find out from the
dealer what will be needed on arrival day, so you have everything ready to go.

Decks

Whether you are using a new or existing
layer, make sure it is rated for the weight. For this, you are going to want to
hire a contractor that will verify the structural integrity of the location.
Not only will you be out a lot of money if the spa falls, but you could
potentially have people get injured.

Conclusion

This may sound like a lot of extra time and
money but trust us when we tell you it will be worth it. Just think of all the
summer nights you will be able to spend with your family and friends. Nothing
makes a party go from fun to extraordinary, quite like a spa. Just make sure
that you have followed the steps above and are ready for the arrival of your
spa. Let us be the first to congratulate you on your new purchase. We wish you
many happy years of soaking in your new hot tub.
