Where is the best place to put a hot tub? Usually, this question arises after you decided to have a hot tub. Here is a guide for where to put your hot tub.
- Consider Your Backyard
I would say surely that the backyard is a private and safe place for a hot tub. It is usually fenced, and people will have their griddles and lawn furniture. Also, you can install a hot tub canopy or patio to improve hot tub privacy with post-and-lattice designs in a wide choice of sealants, woods, stains or paints, perhaps with fragrant vines or flowering growing on the lattice. For an even cozier getaway, consider a fancy hot tub gazebo, maybe with sliding windows, decorative roofs. Also, usually your backyard is available from Local building codes.
- Looking for Comfort and Accessible Place
The best place to put a hot tub is to put a hot tub as close to the back door to ease your steps away from a warm soak. You will also want it convenient to a bathroom for drying and change. You can build a hot tub deck with fencing to create the hot tub more private without having to house it in a separate structure.
You will also need a valve within reach and a hose apron for filling. If you want to use the hot tub frequently for adult relaxation, you might choose a more screened spot in the backyard. On the other hand, you can put it closer to the gathering scene if it’s for family gatherings.
- Consider Shade, Sunlight and Wind
Trees are beautiful, charm singing birds, sound pleasant in a breeze, and give shade on sunshiny days. However, they also drop their leaves. A few leaves fall in the hot tub is still ok, but a lot of leaves can cause costly and hard hot tub maintenance. So, avoid putting your hot tub under any tree branches.
Direct sunshine is the best spot for a hot tub. Follow where you get direct sunbeams in your yard during the summer and make sure you install your hot tub in that spot to get a little dark in your hot tub.
Consider the hot tub landscaping to enhance your backyard. Add landscaping, such as trees, flowers, shrubs, arbors, potted plants, planters, hanging baskets, waterfalls, and fountains can enhance the relaxing ambiance. Also, you can consider adding some outdoor hot tub lighting and TV.
The wind is also a major factor to consider: too little can leave everyone quickly hot and make the area stagnant, too much can make sitting on the edges of the hot tub almost unacceptable. A hot tub fence can control the intensity of the wind.
- Checks Regulations and Codes
The last and also important is code and regulation as I mentioned above. Every towns, cities, and country have different regulations and code and change all the time on where a hot tub may go. Even though typical backyard is free from the regulations and codes, you have to make sure by calling your local building department and ask about the regulation and code. Of course the best place to put a hot tub is the combination of all things above.
