If you want to create a sense of excitement and give your garden a special touch, there's no better way to do it than with a hot tub. What's more, an outdoor hot tub offers the advantage of easier maintenance, not to mention that in addition to being used in the summer like any other hot tub, a garden hot tub can easily be used, and optimally, in the winter. In addition, any type of outdoor spa can be installed: portable, built-in or semi-installed, provided that the installation procedures for the chosen model are followed. This article aims to provide you with all the advice you need on how to install a hot tub in the garden.
The advantages of a garden spa
There are several reasons for the decision to install a spa in the garden. Firstly, it may be a fashion statement. Currently, the trend is towards outdoor spas. Those who live in flats opt for a spa on a balcony for obvious reasons of space. It is therefore normal that those who have more space choose to install their hot tub in the garden. In addition, there are comfort and hygiene criteria. There is no need to go to an institute dedicated to well-being, and the material (bath towels) is disposable. Not to mention the privacy that this can offer a couple.
The other reason may be aesthetic. It is even more luxurious, more pleasant to have a place in your garden to enjoy with family and friends. Let's just say that an outdoor spa has more style. And whether it is made of stone, wood, concrete or synthetic material, an outdoor hot tub will fit comfortably in the garden.
In addition, the combination of hot and cold in winter makes the use of the spa even more pleasant and beneficial for the body. Once you are in contact with the warm water, your muscles become more relaxed. Therefore, no matter what time of year it is, you will find it difficult to miss out on all these moments of relaxation and happiness, provided that the water is heated to 40°C beforehand.
Requirements for the installation of an outdoor spa
The installation of a garden spa must take into account a number of criteria. Firstly, the choice of location, which in addition to preserving the privacy of users, must avoid exposing the spa to the various weather conditions.
Next, consider the type of spa. If it is a portable spa, you will need to ensure that the floor is strong and stable. To avoid damage to the spa's covering, it should ideally be installed on a sand bank or smooth concrete slab. Also, it should be easy to walk around it.
If, on the other hand, you choose a built-in or semi-installed spa, you will need to have the groundwork done before it is installed. The installation of a built-in spa is more complex and requires the presence of professionals.
The other thing to do before installing a hot tub in your garden is to ensure that the electrical connections are working properly. It may be necessary to have a dedicated room built for this purpose. Unless, of course, you opt for an easy-to-use spa, the Softub spa, which only needs to be plugged into a 220V socket to operate.
