  • Size and Dimensions: The 7-person hot tub takes up a lot of space, so it only fits in the right-sized garden or room. Take note of the size and dimensions of each hot tub model. Measure the available space where you plan to install the hot tub to ensure a proper fit. Consider both the interior space for seating and the exterior dimensions for accessibility and maintenance purposes.

With a variety of jet types, including directional jets, rotary jets, and pulsating jets, each jet type caters to specific massage techniques, targeting different muscle groups and providing a range of therapeutic experiences.

Determining Your Specific Needs for a 7-Person Hot Tub

Here are a few points to keep in mind:

  • Seating Capacity: Assess the number of people who will regularly use the hot tub. The 7-person capacity allows for larger gatherings and family enjoyment, but if you prefer more space for each individual, you might consider a 6-person or 4-person model.
  • Comfort and Layout: Pay attention to the layout of the seating arrangement. Hot tubs designed with comfort in mind, feature seating arrangements that provide space for each occupant while providing ergonomic seating, cushioning, and contoured shapes. 
  • Additional Features: Consider any specific features or accessories that are important to you.

Preparing Your Home for Your 7-Person Hot Tub

From selecting the ideal location to ensuring proper electrical and plumbing requirements, each step of preparing your space for a 7-person hot tub plays a crucial role in creating the perfect oasis.

Selecting the Ideal Location

One of the first steps in preparing your home for a 7-person hot tub is deciding on the ideal location for installation. Since it is much larger than its 2, 4, or 6-person hot tubs, it requires much more preparation.

Consider the following factors:

  • Indoor or Outdoor: Determine whether you want to install your 7-person hot tub indoors or outdoors. Each option has its own advantages. The indoor installation provides privacy and protection from the elements, while outdoor installation allows you to enjoy nature and create an outdoor oasis. Just consider when installing indoors there are important considerations when it comes to ventilation and having a structure that can withstand the weight of your large 7-person tub.
  • Space and Accessibility: Evaluate the available space in your home or yard. Ensure that the area can accommodate the dimensions of the hot tub and leave enough room for easy access, maintenance, and any required safety features. 
  • Privacy and Aesthetics: Consider the level of privacy you desire when using your Wellis Spa hot tub. Select a location that provides a sense of seclusion, shielded from prying eyes. Additionally, think about how the hot tub will blend with the overall aesthetics of your home and landscape. Fortunately, there are countless versions to keep your privacy, you just have to find the right one!

Meeting Proper Electrical and Plumbing Requirements

Proper electrical and plumbing requirements are crucial to ensure the safe and efficient operation of your 7-person hot tub. 

Here's what you need to keep in mind:

  • Electrical Supply: Ensure that you have the necessary electrical capacity to power the hot tub. Most 7-person hot tubs require a 220-240V electrical supply. It is essential to consult with a licensed electrician or expert in hot tub installation to determine if your electrical system can handle the load and to ensure proper installation. Be sure to ask for the help of a professional to create this!
  • GFCI Protection: Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection is a must for your hot tub's electrical connection. This safety feature helps protect against electric shocks and should be installed by a professional electrician in compliance with local electrical codes.
  • Plumbing Considerations: If you choose an indoor installation, ensure that your home's plumbing system can handle the additional demand. You may need to consult with a plumber to make any necessary adjustments or additions to accommodate the hot tub's water supply and drainage requirements. It takes a lot of water to fill such a large hot tub, changing the water every 3-4 months can easily strain the plumbing.

7-person Hot Tub Maintenance

Owning a 7-person hot tub is like having your own personal oasis of relaxation right in your backyard. To ensure that your hot tub continues to provide the ultimate soaking experience, proper maintenance is key. 

Water Chemistry 101: Maintaining the Perfect Balance for Crystal-Clear Water

Keeping the water in your 7-person hot tub clean, clear, and properly balanced is essential for both your enjoyment and the longevity of the hot tub. 

Here are some key points to remember when it comes to hot tub water care:

  • Testing and Balancing: Regularly test the water's pH levels, sanitizer levels (such as chlorine or bromine), and alkalinity. Use test strips or a liquid testing kit designed specifically for hot tubs regularly. Adjust the levels as needed to ensure proper balance.
  • Sanitization: Proper sanitization is crucial to keep the water free from bacteria and contaminants. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for adding the appropriate sanitizing chemicals. Consider using a quality sanitizer dispenser or automatic dosing system for consistent and effective water treatment. With the latter, you can make your job easier, as it dispenses the appropriate chemical by itself.
  • Shocking the Water: Periodically shock the water to eliminate any organic compounds or contaminants that may build up over time. This helps to maintain water clarity and freshness. Again, refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for the recommended shock treatment and frequency.

Routine Cleaning and Filter Maintenance for Optimal Performance

Regular cleaning and filter maintenance are vital to keep your 7-person hot tub running smoothly and ensure the longevity of its components. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • Surface Cleaning: Use a non-abrasive, spa-specific cleaner to wipe down the surfaces of your hot tub regularly. Pay attention to the waterline, where oils, lotions, and debris tend to accumulate. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive scrubbers that can damage the hot tub's finish. This allows you to remove small dirt that is still visible to the eye.
  • Filter Cleaning: Clean the hot tub filters regularly to maintain optimal water flow and filtration. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for removing, cleaning, and replacing the filters. Rinse them with a hose or use a filter cleaning solution to remove dirt and debris. Replace the filters as recommended by the manufacturer or when they show signs of wear.
  • Draining and Refilling: Depending on usage and water conditions, you'll need to drain and refill your hot tub periodically. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the recommended frequency. This helps to refresh the water and remove any accumulated impurities.

Setting the Mood: 7-Person Hot Tub Accessories

When it comes to creating the perfect ambiance in your 7-person hot tub, the perfect hot tub accessories play a vital role. Elevate your hot tub experience to new heights by exploring a range of options designed to enhance comfort, convenience, and sensory delight. Take your relaxation to an even higher level with just a few accessories.

Exploring Essential Accessories for a 7-Person Hot Tub

To ensure maximum comfort and convenience during your hot tub sessions, consider these essential hot tub accessories:

  • Spa Steps: Investing in sturdy and slip-resistant spa steps makes getting in and out of your hot tub more accessible and less prone to accidents for all users.
  • Cover Lifters: A cover lifter makes removing and replacing the hot tub cover effortless, allowing for quick and convenient access to your hot tub while also protecting the cover from damage. A useful accessory if you don't want to take the cover off and on every time.
  • Spa Pillows: Relax and unwind with the addition of comfortable spa pillows designed to provide neck and head support, enhancing your overall comfort and relaxation experience. Pay attention to its design and material, which must be waterproof.
  • Towel Warmers: Keep your towels cozy and warm by utilizing a towel warmer near your hot tub. Stepping out of the warm water and wrapping yourself in a toasty towel adds a touch of luxury to your post-soak routine. It's not a big investment, but it adds a lot to the perfect spa experience.

Enhancing the Sensory Experience of Your 7-Person Hot Tub
