If your hot tub is to be located outdoors it is important to choose a spot that offers a level surface with a firm foundation. Select an appropriate walkway material so that contaminants and debris are not tracked into the hot tub. If your hot tub is to be installed indoors you must ensure that the room offers a strong foundation, as well as a ventilation system to remove excess steam and moisture.
Building Codes & Permits
Most cities and towns require you to obtain a permit before adding improvements such as a deck or hot tub to your home. Construction may also be affected by municipal building codes and manufacturer’s warranties. Be sure to check with your local government offices and read your warranty before beginning any construction, as noncompliance can lead to added expense and headaches down the road.
Unlike other home appliances, such as a refrigerator or electric range, a hot tub cannot simply be plugged into a standard wall outlet. Instead, an additional, dedicated circuit breaker is added to your home’s electrical panel. It is very important that this task be performed by a certified electrician in order to protect your home and family from electrical surges and the possibility of a fire.
