We will show you what’s involved in setting your swim spa up for success.

Tips for setting up your swim spa for success.

There’s no need to be overly anxious when thinking about how to set up your swim spa. These three tips will get you started on the right track to successfully setting up your swim spa.

Tip 1: Choose the right location. 

Choosing the right location for your swim spa’s base is important. Many swim spas are placed on a concrete pad. Once you find a level spot, then you will want to properly compact the area.  That way you don’t have to worry about your spa sinking after placement. Before having any work done, it is a good rule of thumb to check with your local authorities concerning the zoning laws that apply to your installation. There may be regulations about fencing and the use of professionals for electrical work.

Tip 2: Get with a licensed electrician.

Most swim spas require a 240v/50-amp hook up with its own breaker. Check with a licensed electrician when it comes to setting up the dedicated power source that your swim spa will need. They may have suggestions about the placement of the electrical hook-up for your spa. Also, make sure they will have the availability you need to perform the job once you are ready.

Tip 3: Consider space clearance for delivery and set up.

Swim spas offer a lot of versatility in as little as 200 square feet of space. You can install them indoors or outdoors. They can be placed above ground or in-ground.  They can be in a sunroom or on a deck. With several choices of location, it is an excellent idea to consult a spa installer.

You want to make sure that the installation crew will be able to easily access the area. It is important to check and make sure that you have the right amount of clearance to bring your swim spa into the space you’ve chosen. It’s better to discover that you need to pick a different location early on rather than have the installation crew show up and be unable to work in the chosen spot. Typically a swim spa will need from 11 feet to 19 feet long length of space and at least 8 feet of width.
