If you are looking to improve your home, the garden is an area that can add a considerable amount to the value of your home. Not only that, it can provide you with a space that can become your sanctuary, to relax in, spend time in and enjoy being a part of. A feature that many are coming to add to their garden is a Hot Tub.
More and more people are becoming aware of the health benefits associated with hot Tubs and there are many stunning examples of how Hot Tubs can be added to a garden space to give it that WOW factor and this page covers it well. If you are installing a Hot Tub there are factors which you may have to consider before and during the installation process to ensure that it is done effectively and correctly as you can shorten the life of your tub with an improper setup.
- The first thing that you will need to consider is where to place the Hot Tub. You don’t want to have to walk too far from your changing area as during the winter months this could be a very cold experience. In your garden, it would be wise to place it near an entrance to your house.
- The base that you plan to set your Hot Tub on must be solid, so setting your Hot Tub on the lawn would not be an option. Remember that the Hot Tub is heavy and any base that you prepare must be able to take the weight of the tub. An inadequate or unsuitable base can result in damage to the tub and as a result, may invalidate the warranty.
- Your Hot Tub cannot be squeezed into a tiny area as there has to be accessed around it, in order that the control panel is accessed and also to allow for maintenance work to be carried out.
- You have to have proper access to your area in order for the tub to be delivered and set up. Hot Tubs tend to be big and if the only option is a narrow passageway to the side of your house, this could, in fact, mean that you would have to consider other methods to have it put in place or consider putting it somewhere else.
- Your Hot Tub will require a supply of electricity. The electrical setup should be completed by a fully registered electrician to ensure safety.
A Hot Tub is a purchase that should give you a great deal of pleasure for years to come and it is essential that it is set up in a manner that will stand the test of time. Your Hot Tub will have to be maintained according to the manufacturer’s instructions and the correct chemicals will have to be used in the correct amounts as per instructions.
Your supplier will be able to advise you on the maintenance required and help you with the use of the chemicals.
