Purchasing a spa lets you create a personal paradise in your backyard. However, you must do a lot of planning before you make your vision a reality. The experts at Pettis Pools & Patio, with locations in Greece and East Rochester, NY, offer a vast selection of spas and hot tubs and will explain how to get ready to put one on your property.
How to Prepare for Spa Installation
Check zoning laws and other requirements that might dictate decisions about your new spa, such as whether to surround it with a fence or install a security alarm. Be sure to check state and local regulations since they won't always overlap.
Determine a Location
Some cities and townships have codes that limit where you can put your new spa. For example, you might need to install it a certain distance from your house or property line. Your hot tub also must sit on a flat concrete surface or spa pad, so fulfill these requirements ahead of time to make installation day run smoothly.
Ensure Your Electrical System Is Sufficient
Spas and hot tubs require a lot of electricity to keep water warm. Hire an electrician to check your home’s circuitry and verify it can handle your new outdoor feature. If the inspection indicates your home needs a wiring or panel update to provide sufficient power, complete work on your electrical system before you hook up your spa.
