IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO KNOW BEFORE SHOPPING FOR A HOT TUB OR SWIM SPA!

By

  1. Electrical Requirements:
    • There are two types of hot tubs based on electrical connection:
      • Plug and Play: These operate on 110V and don't require special electrical setup.
      • 220V Spa: These are more powerful and need 220V electricity. For these, it's preferable to have a 50 amp breaker and 6 gauge wires. However, a 30 amp breaker and 8 gauge wires can also work. Ensure your electrician installs at least a 10-foot whip for connection.
  2. Pad Requirements:
    • All spas must be placed on a solid foundation. Recommended surfaces include:
      • A minimum 4-inch thickness reinforced concrete slab.
      • Decks and floors meeting the uniform building code.
    • Surfaces must be flat and able to support 80 lbs./sq. ft.
  3. Access Requirements:
    • Most spas require 38-40 inches minimum clearances through gates and between the house and side fences. Additional clearance is needed to navigate corners.
    • 7 to 10 feet of overhead clearance is necessary, depending on the spa's size.
    • Spas are heavy and may require special equipment for placement, especially in cases of steep terrain, steps, or elevated decks. Additional equipment like a crane may be needed.
    • All debris, fences, landscaping, and obstacles blocking or limiting access must be removed before delivery.
    • If unsure about clearance requirements, feel free to reach out for a site inspection.
