When you buy a Master Spa you are buying one of the best energy efficient hot tubs made.  From insulated covers, to environmentally friendly lcynene foam that insulates, to the high density polymer base keeps the heat in.  


Most people like to install their new hot tub above the ground in Kelowna.  It is recommended that the foundation which your hot tub will sits on is concrete with four inches of thickness and reinforced steel bars.


You can install a hot tub on a brick foundation or patio pavers.  The ground must be level and filled pea gravel or sand.  You must make sure that the ground has be compacted with the brick or pavers on top.  When a hot tub is filled with water there will be some settling of the ground.


When installing a spa on a wood deck we recommend you speak with a qualified contractor or structural engineer to be sure the deck can hold several thousand pounds.  


If you want to install your new spa into a deck you need to make sure the hot tub has a solid base underneath it.  Another thought to consider is that you will need to make sure there is room to service your spa and panels will need to be removed.  You can put removable portions of deck panels around your hot tub.  Three feet of a perimeter is usually required for access.  It is also important to remember that when a spa is installed and recessed you need a drainage system.  The system is meant to move away any water that could collect from your spa.
