4 Items to Consider when Choosing a Location for your Spa
Purchasing a spa is an investment and something that you will be living with for years to come. When choosing a location for your spa there are several items you should consider.
1. Is there a particular view that you wish to admire from your spa? Whether it be a stunning view of the hills or even so that you can sit and watch the flat screen TV on the back wall, consider which way you want the seating to face. Imagine how great it could be watching the footy from the comfort of your spas recliner!
2. Is the location where you want your spa private? There could be nothing worse than sitting in your spa only to be in full view from your neighbor’s windows.
If you are requiring extra privacy why don’t you consider a gazebo? Gazebo’s come in many styles and sizes and with a roof you can use your spa all year round!
3. As a common guideline it is recommended to keep access around all sides of your spa or swim spa. This way, if you ever need to get into the cabinet you can. This will also allow good clear access for the electrician as well as any servicing of the spas motor, pumps, etc. that may be required at a later date.
For spas we recommend keeping a minimum space of 600mm and for swim spas 900mm. If you are planning on decking around your spa we recommend building trapdoor for easy access.
4. If you are planning on installing your spa near the house remember to think about noise. Spas are available with different levels of insulation, 2, 4, 6 or 8 layers. The more insulation the spa has the quieter it will be. If you are looking at a spa with 2 levels of insulation and want to install the spa against you bedroom window you don’t want to have to listen to the spa running all night
So keep in mind these points when picking your spas location, a spa is an item you will be living with for years to come!
