What You Need To Know When Installing A Hot Tub Gazebo
Hot tubs are a ‘hot item’ right now (mind the pun) with all types of people purchasing and installing a hot tub to reap the relaxation and health benefits. A hot tub gazebo is a great way to extend the life of your hot tub as well as giving you a longer season to enjoy it.
Many different types of gazebo kits are available and most can easily be built around your existing hot tub. The most important consideration is to ensure there is an abundance of support because when filled, your hot tub could weight up to 5,000 pounds!
When determining what type of hot tub gazebo you need and where you should build it, there are many factors to consider.
- How big of a gazebo do you need? Figuring out the size of the gazebo can be a challenge for many homeowners. You do not want to purchase a monster gazebo and find that it visually overpowers all other aspects of your property, yet you don’t want to buy one too small and find it doesn’t function well. The best thing to do is write a list of all the functions you need your new gazebo to do. Beyond the hot tub, what else will it house? Will you have seating, a table, maybe even a small bar fridge? Listing out everything you want to place in your gazebo will help you figure out what size you need.
- Location – Location, location, location! Location is just as important for your gazebo placement as it is in real estate. When choosing your site, think about aesthetics and function. Think about whether you would like a private location with lots of shade trees and plants or do you prefer a brighter spot in your yard offering a great view? Would you prefer to have the hot tub located near your back door so that you can easily slip into the house after a dip? If you would like to use your hot tub all year long, then think about access in the cold winter months.
In addition, think about the location in terms of access to plumbing, electricity and ventilation. Also, think about the grade and pitch of the space. Ideally, choose a level site with a minor pitch to the back.
Once you’ve found what you think is the ideal spot, stake out the location in terms of the length and width of your new gazebo. Keep the stakes there for several days and continually evaluate your decision. Does it look right, will it blend in with your house and is it big enough to hold everything you envision for your hot tub gazebo?
- Zoning – Check with your municipality to determine if you need a building permit for your new structure. Each municipality is different, so it is important to check before you build.
