The average four-person hot tub weighs 2,000kg when full of water – different makes and models will vary slightly, but that’s a pretty good gauge to start with when deciding on a suitable location.
If that weight sounds daunting, don’t worry as it will be quite a bit lighter before you fill it up.
The easiest way to get a hot tub into your garden is via an access point which is wider than your new purchase.
Most can also be turned on their side to get through a gap which may initially seem to be too narrow.
But don’t panic if that isn’t possible – where there’s a will there’s a way.
Our team at Aqua Warehouse can help organise an installation involving a crane or other machinery to ensure a lack of access won’t hamper your hot tub dreams.
Once it is in your garden, you need to pick the perfect location to sit and relax.
A sturdy, flat surface is essential, be it concrete, patio or a robust, sturdy deck which won’t bow underneath that 2,000kg.
You may also want to consider digging into the ground so that the top of the tub sits at ground level to create a striking visual.
If you have the space, it is also possible to have your new hot tub installed indoors to protect it from the changeable British weather.
Again, you’ll need to carefully consider whether the floor can take the consistent weight of the tub and it might be worth consulting an expert if you’re not sure.
Good ventilation is also a must. A properly treated hot tub will produce vapour from the chemicals used for cleaning, which must have an escape route to avoid troublesome damp and condensation.
Wherever you want your new hot tub, and whatever the logistics, our friendly sales team at Aqua Warehouse will do everything we can to make it happen.
