Installing A Relaxing Indoor Hot Tub

Aug 17, 2007
So you need to relax? Or maybe just get into a tub and rest? Indoor hot tubs are one of the best inventions available for stress reduction. It is a wise decision to soothe those nerves that have faced havoc from work or from your family. Indoor tubs are great because it is more private and safe. You won't have a problem if you want to strip butt naked and stay there for long hours and have no nosy neighbors looking around. Isn't that the best thing on earth? Getting yourself that indoor tub will not only relax your body it will also calm the mind.

So you have been considering getting a tub inside your place? Before you actually purchase the item here are a few considerations to look into.

- How large can my tub be?
- What shape and size would work best with my overall theme in the house or in the location of the supposed tub?
- What is my budget?
- Would I want to use my tub on all seasons?
- Will a lot of people use the tub at the same time?
- Is the area for my tub waterproofed?
- Can I afford a big tub that will increase my electricity bill?

Once you have thought about the answers to the questions listed above do research. Check out sites and books. It would be even much better if you go around and checkout showrooms for tubs. There are a lot of businesses that focus mainly on bath and pools so you have a very wide variety. Just remember your considerations and specifications and you will be on your way to getting that new indoor tub.

There are also certain things that are part of the tub but are not visible. These are the posts that are to be attached below your tub so it could hold and carry all the weight that will be placed there. And by weight we are talking something around 5,000 lbs (this includes all the people who might use the tub at the same time).

After considering all that is that you want and need find a professional. Hire the best. They need to see the area first for measurements and proper design for the area. They will look into the ventilation of the area and all that comes along with it like humidity and air.

Germs are a no-no. Clean everything. Make sure air comes in and out. It is very important that no microorganisms will stay in that area. Keeping unnecessary organisms there will put a strain not only in your health but also in your wallet (think about medicines). Clean atmosphere will keep us healthy and relaxed. Isn't that your main goal why you want that indoor tub anyway?

It is important to get a real and good electrician to do all the necessary components. Don't attempt to do it your self. Your life and your house depend on this. Electricity can be a friend or a foe. You don't just play around with it. Besides you wouldn't want to roast yourself or turn your house to crisp right?

Another person you might want to check out is someone who can place your tub inside your house and waterproof the area. Not all do-it-yourselfers can carry 800 lbs right? Not all can tile their floors well too. You might want to consider a professional to prevent all the hassle. Aside from all the hassle you will also save money and time. Yes you will.

Aside from the person to do all the necessary requirements remember to look into your drainage. You wouldn't want mildew and germs harbor there right? Remember to look into a good flooring too. A well done and waterproofed floor will not only make your tub the best looking tub there is it will also keep the tub from degrading.

Leave everything to the pros. You will get all that you deserve. And have that piece of mind that you are safe when you dip inside it. Thinking of a roasted you is not really very relaxing.

Relaxation is the key to a healthy and sound mind and body. Get yourself that new indoor tub and relax all the tension away. You deserve it.
