An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When planning the installation of your new hot tub, this bit of wisdom may save you from future headaches. Let’s ask the local hot tub experts at Deckside Pool in Penticton what to consider when planning a hot tub foundation.
Concrete is a Solid Choice
What About Using an Existing Deck?
If you already have a backyard deck, this can be an excellent choice as well. Check its current condition. Is it level? Is it in good repair? Are the proper supports in place? What is the quality of any wood touching the ground? The extra weight of a full hot tub may stress a deck that isn’t on a solid foundation. Give us a call to plan an onsite deck inspection and we can advise.
Consider the Prefab Spa Pad
Check out the latest in this easy-to-install foundation! Spa pads are constructed of polyethylene (plastic) and are highly durable. A spa pad can be ordered to match your hot tub’s size and can work on grass, dirt, sand, gravel or crushed rock. This option provides peace-of-mind that your tub will be level and protected even when placed directly on the ground.
