3 Things to Consider Before Installing an Indoor Hot Tub

Home/Info Articles/3 Things to Consider Before Installing an Indoor Hot Tub

The best thing about putting your hot tub indoors is that you get to enjoy it whatever the weather or season is. You’ll also be able to have fun away from prying eyes of close neighbours. But before you have one installed, consider the following:

Ventilation System
A ventilation system installed along with the hot tub is crucial to controlling humidity and condensation indoors. Powerful exhaust fans or forced air systems can reduce the amount of heat and moisture remaining indoors after the hot tub has been used. Source: DoItYourself

Flooring and Drainage
When you climb out of your hot tub, up to a gallon of water could follow you and end up on the floor. Make sure you install non-slip flooring and provide adequate drainage.

Flooring no-no’s are carpet and wood, which could deteriorate, and plastic turf-type flooring, which could allow seepage underneath that can rot the base.

A non-glossy or matte non-slip finish is best. You’ll pat yourself on the back if you install a drain in the floor, especially when you need to drain your spa to clean, service or move it. Source: AngiesList

Windows and Doors
You can choose to have either a series of windows along the entire wall, or else, you can decide to equip your indoor hot tub room with sliding windows instead. Windows built along the entire wall allow a lot of sunlight to enter the room and it is an excellent idea if the hot tub room is facing a garden. However, in case the room is facing the street, you are recommended to install a series of sliding windows or doors and then design or paint the remaining space on the wall according to your likings. Ideally, frosted glass is used in this case to retain your privacy. Source: DoItYourself
