A high-quality hot tub is like having a world-class resort right in the comfort of your own backyard. That’s why we always tell owners the same thing when they ask where is a good place to install my new Beachcomber: make it as accessible as possible!
If you are thinking a hot tub might look great in the tranquil corner at the very back of your yard, think again. On a cold, rainy night, are you really going to want to venture much further than your back door?
By keeping a hot tub close to your home and easily accessible, even in the deep winter-freeze, you’ll be able to quickly step in, and enjoy the incredible hydrotherapeutic benefits.
Best practices for hot tub installation
How close is close?
Based on feedback we have from owners, within 10 feet from your backdoor is a distance you should aim for.
You’ll also want it conveniently located to a place inside for drying and changing and close to a water line and hose for filling.
If privacy is important, think about building an enclosure or putting it in a gazebo-like structure, with curtains that can be closed or open.
Remember, a Beachcomber Hot Tub can sit on any foundation as long as it’s level and can support the weight of the hot tub. Cement patio tiles or interlocking bricks are just some of the relatively simple solutions for you to create a solid foundation for your hot tub. Just ensure you avoid installation in a low area where water may accumulate and damage the equipment, and that your hot tub is positioned so access to the equipment compartment will not be blocked.
Tree needles, leaves, branches, or sap. These backyard hazards can quickly dirty the water in your hot tub. That’s why we recommend that you keep your hot tub protected or enough distance away from low hanging branches to save you time and energy in cleaning.
