You have your new home and you love it, but it seems to be missing something – like a new hot tub!

Indoor hot tubs are both relaxing and a lot of fun. That being said, there are a few things you should know before taking the plunge.

Let’s take a look at some simple installation tips to get you soaking the day away in no time!

FIVE TIPS FOR INSTALLING INDOOR HOT TUBS FOR NEW HOMEOWNERS

From luxurious cedar hot tubs to smaller economy hot tubs, we have got the tips you will need to install your indoor oasis. Here are the five best tips for you.

1. CHOOSE THE CORRECT MODEL TYPE

You need to choose a model that is suitable for indoors. Generally, these will be 120V models that plug indoors.

These smaller models are easier to manage and can fit through restrictive doorways.

In some cases a larger spa can be used, but only if there is enough room or if it was included in the original floor plan.

2. PREVENT WATER DAMAGE

Water damage in the home is costly to repair and can cause mold which can lead to health issues. preparing yourself for water overflow is key to having an indoor hot tub.

Consider the flooring around the hot tub. The flooring should be waterproof or water-resistant. In addition to the floor being waterproof, it should also be slip-resistant.

Try using a slip-proof tile or using a water sealant over the floor. Installing a drain in the floor could help with water spillage as well.

3. CONSIDER WALL TYPES

Your hot tub will create steam. Using drywall that you would use in a bathroom can help control the moisture.

Other options for your walls could be to build a glass enclosure around the hot tub or to use water-resistant drywall.

Taking care to install the appropriate walls around the hot tub will help you prevent wall studs from issues like dry-rot down the line.

4. MANAGE HUMIDITY

Like we said hot tubs create steam. A ventilation fan can help to clear the room from the steam buildup. Be sure to choose a fan that is rust-resistant and strong enough to pull the steam from the room.

You do not want the humidity to exceed 60 percent. For this reason, the hot tub room should have its own temperature and humidity controls.

Buying a dehumidifier is a must for the indoor hot tub room.

5. CONTROL THE ODOR

The chemicals used to keep the spa clean emit and odor. Chemicals like chlorine and bromine create fumes that can be hard to control.

Consider UV sanitation or the use of an Ozonator to mitigate the fumes.

This in conjunction with your ventilation fan and HVAC system should help with the spa odors.

FINAL THOUGHTS

It’s time to get things started! Buying your new home is stressful enough, indoor hot tubs will give you the relaxation and fun you deserve.
