Shopping Tips!

1.) Location: Before you start shopping, take a moment to evaluate your backyard and think about the best location for your hot tub. Is it next to your backdoor? Is the best spot in a small corner out of the way? Does privacy matter to you? What type of base is there right now (grass, dirt, pavers, concrete etc.)?

2.) Figuring out size: Once you figure out where you want your hot tub, use painters tape to map out a hot tub in your backyard. This will help you understand how large or small of a hot tub you can fit in that area of your small backyard. A great way to start your hot tub shopping experience!

3.) 220V or 110V?: In order to better understand what kind of hot tub you can purchase for your small backyard, it’s a good idea to know how much voltage you have available on your electrical panel. So, take a look at your electrical panel before heading to your local hot tub dealer & take a photo! They’ll help you understand how much voltage you have available.

4.) Access to your small backyard: What is the access like? Is there a clear pathway to your backyard that’s atleast 34″ wide? If not, don’t quit just yet. We’re delivered hot tubs through homes and actually above homes with cranes. So, if you don’t have a clear pathway, take a lot of photos of your front yard, backyard, and entryway to your home & your backyard. A wellness consultant will be able to help you understand if a delivery is possible.
