Backyard Hot Tub Style

Taking it Easy With a Hot Tub

Backyards, decks and patios — much of it is about relaxing, which is why hot tubs fit in so well. Let’s assume that you’re just thinking about adding a hot tub, here are some tips.

Start with the basics:

Don’t just think about summer; plan on using your hot tub throughout the year. Plant seasonal flowers, move furniture, or add a spa umbrella when the seasons change. Of course, in some climates, flowers and winter just don’t go together. If that’s the case, consider plants in containers that can be moved as an alternative. Also, keep in mind that even bare branches can add beauty to a winter landscape, and could enhance the night if strung with tiny white lights! Or, consider integrating other items, such as rocks, fountains, and statues.

Jacuzzi Hot Tub Installation Contest Results

Facebook Followers Voted The Best Hot Tub Installation

As many of you know, we launched our first Facebook contest last month. The Best Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Installation Contest was created to showcase the outstanding installation designs of our hot tub owners, who put so much care into creating their dream backyards around Jacuzzi spas. We received many installation entries, but narrowed the finalists down to eight installations. The hot tub installations were all very different ranging in various spa models, backyard settings and spa owners.

People love seeing pictures of what their backyards could look like. It was nice to provide potential spa owners various possibilities of what a backyard could be with the integration of a Jacuzzi hot tub.

Will I Need to Install Plumbing and Electrical for My Hot Tub?

Hot Tub Installation: No special plumbing is required! Most hot tubs are portable and above-ground. Simply fill up the hot tub with your garden hose.

That said, remember to keep in mind that a hot tub filled with water is heavy. A good, solid hot tub foundation is essential for any hot tub. The area that it rests on must be able to support the weight of the hot tub, the water in it, and those who use it. If you are installing on an elevated structure, it is recommended that you consult a contractor or structural engineer to find specific hot tub requirements for decks.

  • Why did you choose to purchase a Jacuzzi brand hot tub versus another brand? We looked at numerous other brands and choose a Jacuzzi due to the brands reputation, build quality and the longevity of the brand. We didn’t want to be concerned whether the manufacturer would still be in business in a few years making it difficult to service. Also, our local dealer made a big difference. Jay was a pleasure to work with and spent as much time with us, answering questions and providing advice, as needed. We always felt that he had our best interests in mind. more
