Edge of Deck Installation

Edge of deck installations are among the most popular swim spa installation methods in the world. Most people plan to add a deck to their backyard at some point, and a swim spa often gives them a great reason to do it. When you’re looking for the beauty of a raised deck installation with the service access of a stand-alone installation, an edge of deck swim spa is an excellent choice. This style also provides exceptional access for lifter installations.

In Ground Installation

This is one of the most detailed installations for any swim spa. If you’re considering an in ground installation for your swim spa, it’s important to remember that although this installation type can have huge payoffs in terms of aesthetics and functionality,there are several things to keep in mind. First, look at pictures of in ground installations and determine whether the time and effort will be worth it. Make sure you plan in advance by ensuring that the swim spa will be serviceable on all sides. Also consider the possibility of ground water seepage. Because your swim spa will be the lowest point in your backyard, it’s crucial that the pit can withstand the water flow. Finally, make sure the pit is secure to protect it from any unwanted rodents or pests that may want to build a home.

Half and Half Installation

Similar to in ground and raised deck installations, half and half installations require planning and precautionary measures. Because these types of installations are difficult, they require expert guidance from a retailer like Harbor Hot Tubs. The good news is that despite their difficulty, half and half installations are among the easiest to use and maintain. Because of their raised lip, it’s easy to sit on the side and swing your legs in or simply step over the side from one level surface to another. When ease of access is important to you and your guests, half and half installations are a fantastic choice.

Stand Alone Installation

Stand alone installations are by far the most common swim spa installation types. They are among the easiest installation styles as they require no digging, contractors, or special equipment. They also allow for easy service and installation for any cover lifter. The swim spa is simply lifted by a crane, placed in the proper location, and it’s ready to be filled. When properly placed, stand alone installations can dramatically improve the look of your backyard.

Sun Room Installation

In some cases, indoor swim spa installations are a good choice. If you or your family are not fond of cold weather or if your backyard or patio area isn’t suitable for a swim spa, an indoor installation is the answer. Indoor swim spas can add a unique twist to your home as additions to your exercise, glass solarium, or four-season room. If you decide to install your swim spa indoors, it is a good idea to place it near a washroom and shower. Also make sure the room has a floor drain in case of spills. Ventilation is extremely important for indoor installations, so install your swim spa in a room with a window, outside or humidistat controlled exhaust fan, and a humidifier. Finally, make sure there is adequate ventilation for support equipment and install plumbing including a water tap and drain nearby to encourage draining.

Raised Deck Installation

Raised deck installations are some of the most beautiful in the world. Before you get started, it’s crucial to ensure that there is access on all four sides of the swim spa in case you need service. Something to keep in mind about raised deck installations is that due to space restrictions, it can be difficult to place the hardcover and install a lifter in a fully recessed deck. Always discuss your plans with a Harbor Hot Tubs employee before moving forward.
