It’s a good idea to try out different locations before deciding on a spot. Take a chair around with you and sit down in several areas that you might be considering. You might notice things that didn’t occur to you before, like noise, obstructed views, or a clear view from the neighbor’s kitchen window. Don’t forget to check out the view above! Can you see the stars? Are you looking at the trees?
We highly encourage you to keep it close to your house. It may look beautiful in the summer if it’s out by your pool, but what’s going to happen in the middle of January when it’s 22 degrees out? You’ll probably end up not using it, and that’s the best time of year!
If you plan to place it on a deck, be sure that the deck can support the weight of the filled tub. Wherever you decide to put it, be sure that you’ve measured in advance, and that it will actually FIT. When your hot tub is delivered, you need to have the area prepared and ready.
If you plan to put your tub inside, you’ll need to place it in a room or other area with adequate ventilation, and preferably a tile floor. No matter how hard you try to keep the water in the tub, some is bound to get splashed out, or dripped across the floor after exiting the tub. Keep in mind that humidity can be an issue also.
