You are thrilled with your decision to purchase a new Wellis spa. You’ve made a…
Hot tub placement isn’t always top of mind when you’re looking at purchasing a luxury Wellis® USA Hot Tub, but it’s an important consideration when it comes to designing your luxury hot tub experience. And it can be one of the more fun parts of the process.
There are a few practical concerns when it comes to hot tub placement and then a few design considerations that are more preferential. But it’s important to think about these things before your Wellis Spa arrives, so you can have all you need in place and begin enjoying your luxury spa experience sooner rather than later.
Let’s dive into exploring all the things you want to think about when choosing the right location for your new Wellis Spa. Remember, hot tub placement matters.
Practical Concerns for Hot Tub Placement
When it comes to actually installing your Wellis Hot Tub in your backyard, you’ll need to consider where you’d like it to be placed. While the initial hot tub placement isn’t exactly permanent, moving your hot tub later won’t be an easy task. So you should try to get it right the first time.
You’ll also want to consider the path that installers will need to take when they install your hot tub, and you’ll also need to decide what surface you’ll place your hot tub on.
Hot Tub Resting Surface
Your hot tub’s resting surface is one consideration that’s actually both practical and preferential. For the most basic option, you could install a poured concrete slab that’s strong enough to hold the weight of a hot tub full of water and people (think possibly upwards of 8,000 pounds).
But the possibilities for your hot tub’s resting surface are many, so use the opportunity to get creative. You could consider a beautiful wooden deck that would allow for a seating area or a built-in pergola. Wood also affords more luxury touches like built-in flower boxes or a covering.
Another possibility is a luxury patio. Stamped concrete is a beautiful option that allows for customization. Or you could use pavers to create your optimum space.
Just keep the weight requirements of your particular Wellis Hot Tub model in the forefront of your mind, and let your imagination bring you the hot tub space of your dreams.
Electrical and Plumbing
When you’re choosing the location for your Wellis Spa, you’ll also want to make sure that you have the proper electrical nearby. Most of the time, you’ll need a 240-volt outlet and a 40- to 60-amp breaker. The best approach is to use a licensed electrician to make it happen. So, you’ll need to be intentional about where your electrical is located.
One exception would be our Wellis plug-and-play models. As the name suggests, you simply plug these models into a standard 110-volt outlet, fill and balance the water, and hop in.
Plumbing doesn’t require much. You will need to make certain that your water hose reaches your hot tub. And you’ll need to think about how your space drains. The best practice is to drain your hot tub once a quarter, so you wouldn’t want that water to stand in your yard.
