5 Things to Consider Before Situating your Hot Tub

A quick search through Pinterest will instantly turn up some of the most elegant, enchanting hot tub placements that you will ever see. While it is unlikely that your hot tub is going to be situated on your own private pier overlooking the ocean or tucked back in a forest surrounded by giant redwoods, you still want to create the perfect setting for your hot tub. You want a place that is serene and inviting. However, in the real world there are a few things that you need to take into consideration when you are deciding where to place your hot tub. Here are 5 things that you should consider so you will be totally satisfied with your hot tub placement.


The first things that you will want to think of are related to logistics. You can have a perfect location picked out, but if you can’t access the location for delivery it just isn’t going to happen for you. You will also need to make sure the location can support the weight of a hot tub and that you will be able to access the hot tub for maintenance.


If your dream location fits the bill with logistics, you will then need to think about the things that are necessary to run your tub. For example, can you easily run the electrical requirements to the area? Can you get water to your tub when you need to fill it?


When it comes to your hot tub, safety is always the main concern. You want a location that is convenient to access but not so prominent that someone could fall in. What will your tub be surrounded with? If the surface will become slippery when it gets wet, you may need to take extra precautions.


Privacy is a huge consideration when placing your hot tub. Nobody wants to be invaded by prying eyes as they are trying to enjoy a relaxing minute of solitude in their hot tub. Trees and fences, even the angles of your house can all create privacy for your hot tub. If your selected area isn’t very secluded, you can create some privacy with large potted plants, gazebos, pergolas or even screens.


Finally, you will want to consider the beauty of your location. You can have a location that meets all of the other requirements, but when your hot tub is tucked away in a corner with the perfect view of siding and a fence, you just aren’t going to get as much enjoyment out of it as you could. The view you take in while you soak can play a huge roll in how relaxed you feel as you enjoy the hot, bubbly water.
