Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hot tubs are on backorder everywhere. However, we truly believe our hot tubs are worth the wait. You can take the few extra weeks that you are waiting to get everything prepared for the day your new hot tub arrives. This is the perfect time to make sure you and your yard are ready when installation day comes.
Here we have compiled a list for you of 5 things you can do to prepare yourself while waiting for your hot tub to be installed.
1. Find the Perfect Location
When installing a hot tub, you want to make sure there is plenty of room for installation, hot tub maintenance, and your accessories. You need to find an area with level ground and make sure it is close enough to a water source, but far enough away from electrical sources. Having storage for accessories and supplies can be helpful, too.
If this isn’t your first spa, our spa removal team will utilize the wait time to get rid of the old spa to make space for the new one.
2. Illuminate Your Space
You will want to make sure you can see clearly when you are enjoying your new hot tub, especially for getting in and out safely. Having proper lighting so you don’t slip and fall is an important piece to take care of ahead of time.
3. Stock-Up on Supplies
Once our spa service specialist installs your hot tub, you will want to jump right in. This is the perfect time to make sure you have swimsuits and towels on hand. Make sure there is a path to the house protected with a non-slip mat.
4. Be Ready to Maintain Your Hot Tub
You have already picked out the spa you want to be installed, use the time when you’re waiting to make sure you have everything you need to maintain your hot tub. This can include cleaning kits and accessories like hot tub caddies and towel warmers.
Familiarize yourself with the hot tub manual. Since you have some time to get ahead, read through the manual so you know how to work the hot tub properly and won’t have to spend all that time reading when it’s finally there.
5. Landscaping, Decor & More!
Before your spa is set up, do some landscaping and add décor – your backyard oasis won’t be complete without it. You may also want to consider a high fence or tall bushes to add a little privacy.
Adding a fire pit or BBQ is another way to add a great look to your back yard and will complement the hot tub well. You and your family will never want to leave!
