FOUNDATION AND PLACEMENT OPTIONS

A Hot Tub can be placed anywhere outdoors, even in densely populated areas. The foundation on which the Tub stands must be stable, and can be built using either a wooden frame, concrete base or a compacted gravel bed. The Hot Tub cannot be placed directly on grass.

Many people prefer to integrate their hot tub into the terrass.

Plan in advance, it should be comfortable to step down into the bath, and also to get out again. The edge of the tub ought to be placed around 30-40 centimeters above the floor of the terrass. If the edge of the tub is flush with the floor of the terrass then it might feel like stepping into a well and a rail for support is reccomended. Consider ways of emptying the tub when integrating it into a terrass or similar.

ATTENTION! If the hot tub will be countersunk e.g. in a terrace it is necessary that the access is not obstructed in any way order to be able to service it. Service hatches should be removable without a problem (example: AquaKing, AquaStar).
