When bringing home a Limelight, Highlife or Hot Spot spa, there’s a lot to consider when deciding where to put it. You might have a cement patio or a composite deck, but you may need to change your patio or deck design to accommodate your new spa — especially for models like the 8-person Limelight Gleam® or the 7-person Limelight Pulse®. For larger spas, you may decide to build a new deck or craft a new backyard space for your hot tub. A new deck or patio will make it even easier to access your spa, so you can take time for wellness every day.
When planning your deck with the Hot Spring deck designer, consider wrap-around, multi-level, stilted or covered decks. Think about layout, size and shape. Include plans for lighting, pergolas, railing and stairs. If you’re excited to entertain, plan for your deck to be near your kitchen or backyard barbecue.
Installing your new Hot Spring hot tub
As illustrated in the photos above, there are three ways to install a Limelight, Highlife or Hot Spot hot tub on your deck: flush-mounted with the deck surface, partially mounted in the deck surface so that a portion of the tub is exposed, or freestanding on top of the deck. Freestanding spas are easy to transport and don’t damage the deck, but different mounting methods offer other architectural opportunities.
When designing your deck, consider different types of materials. Wood, ceramic tile, slate, brick, stone and cement all provide the strength needed to support your Limelight, Highlife or Hot Spot. Mix and match materials and use the Hot Spring deck designer to create a totally unique deck or patio around your new Hot Spring spa.
