Having a spa or hot tub for your house is a wonderful luxury: you can enjoy the refreshing quality of a pool without all the space that a pool requires, and few sensations are more relaxing than soaking in the water of a hot tub at the end of the day.
Hot tubs are also great for socializing and they can significantly increase the value of a home.
Can you install a spa on your own? Well, we don’t recommend trying it. It’s a lot more complicated than buying a hot tub and plugging it in.
You have to consider the deck, the support, the plumbing connection, the massive weight, the chemicals … there’s far too much to it.
Furthermore, hot tubs and spas have local code and safety requirements they have to meet, and it takes professionals to ensure that your new hot tub meets these codes.
And, above all, you can’t install your own electrical system for your spa!
