Placement Tips for Installing your New Spa
Make sure there will be enough room to walk around your spa. Minimum recommended spacing is 18 inches. We also recommend that you leave no less than 24” of space at the front of the spa to gain access to the motor compartment. If you build a step or entry system in front of the spa, make sure it is removable in the event that your tub needs servicing. See measurements for your model of hot tub.
If you are planning to place your spa up against a wall, keep in mind you will need to empty the spa and move it out for touch-up or re-staining of the Everwood exterior every three to four years. This will vary according to the environment.
The electrical outlet for the spa can be no closer than five feet and within site of the tub, according to the National Electrical Code. If your spa is outside, your spa also needs to be at least ten feet away from overhead electrical lines. See your owners manual for further electrical guidelines.
If you do not have a cover-lifter, make sure you leave enough room to completely take your cover off and store it when the spa is in use. Note: Lines drawn on the diagrams to the right indicate cover hinge points. If you have a cover mechanism on your spa, you will need at least 24” overhead clearance and 10” to 24” clearance at the back of the spa to open your cover. You will also need 3-4” extra clearance on the sides for the cover lifter mechanism. One side will also need to be accessible to use your cover lift. Remember to leave extra storage space for the cover.
Consider placement of your spa with other items you may have such as: furniture, grill, etc. We invite you to stop by any of our stores or call one of our sales professionals to schedule a site visit to help you plan the perfect backyard.
