When To Install An Inground Hot Tub

17th February 2020

Typically, the majority of hot tubs in the UK are located outdoors, whether this is on a patio or on decking, they become a part of the overall design of your garden. When investing in a hot tub it is important to think about where you’re going to put it. These days, lots of people consider partially or fully sinking them and this can work brilliantly – depending on your specific needs and personal preferences.

Of course, there are a lot of things you need to think about when wanting to sink your hot tub and they shouldn’t be overlooked. Unfortunately, this modern idea won’t work for every property and it isn’t always the best decision to make. So, to help anyone that is interested in an inground hot tub but isn’t sure whether it is necessary, Hydropool Surrey have listed the best examples of when an inground hot tub may be the best solution.

If you have mobility issues 

One of the main reasons why an inground hot tub may be considered is if the main users have mobility issues. Of course, if you choose not to sink your garden hot tub you will need steps to help you get both in and out and, it isn’t always easy for everyone to do. Sinking your hot tub fully or partially can really help people access it and this way, you are ensuring that everyone can enjoy using your new purchase.

If it is specific to your garden design 

It isn’t uncommon for people to take a lot of time planning the design of their garden. If a hot tub is an addition being considered at a later date then, there is a high chance that it wasn’t part of the original plan. Deciding to sink your hot tub makes it much easier to blend in with any existing outdoor theme or decor. With the correct cover, you can really disguise a hot tub and you can guarantee that it won’t be intrusive, as it can be installed in a way that compliments your garden design.

If socialising is important 

Using a hot tub when you have people over is great, they are perfect for socialising and spending time with family and friends. That being said, if your hot tub isn’t big enough for everyone to be in at once, then sinking it is a really good idea. This means that you won’t need a built-up deck area for people not in the hot tub to still be included. Everyone will be able to be part of a conversation and socialise whether they’re in the tub or not.

If you can make it easily accessible

Of course, at some point in the future your hot tub will require service and/or repair, so bear this in mind when you partially or fully sunk your hot tub. Doing so has the potential to make a quick and simple repair more expensive than it should be. So, you should really only install an inground hot tub if you’re able to make it easily accessible to a hot tub engineer. A professional will be able to advise whether it is possible to make it easily accessible in your property or not.

Investing in a hot tub 

Take some time to think about whether an inground hot tub is right for you and your family. Take into consideration everything mentioned above and do some research, or speak to friends who also have a hot tub, before you make up your mind. This decision can make a huge difference to how often you use your hot tub and how much you enjoy it.
