A hot tub is great for your mental and physical health, but it can be a big investment. Make the most of every dollar spent by making sure that your hot tub system is installed properly. Even though it is possible to do it on your own, there are many benefits to having it professionally installed. In this article, we’ll explore the difference between DIY and professional installation so you can make an informed decision.


Installing your hot tub on your own will save you some money, but it will require a lot of research, time, tools, and energy to install it properly. You must first prepare a place that can withstand the weight of your hot tub, construct a route for the power to reach the hot tub, which involves an electrician or sufficient electrical knowledge, and lastly, assemble, clean, and prepare the tub for use. Needless to say, DIY hot tub installation is no easy task. It can also be dangerous if you attempt to do the electrical work yourself.

Professional Hot Tub Installation

The benefits of having your system professionally installed far outweigh the cost of the labor. When you choose professional hot tub installation, you don’t have to lift a finger (until you’re ready to turn on the jets) and you can rest easy knowing that the electrical work has been taken care of by an expert. In addition to convenience and safety, a professional installation also means that you won’t have to worry about having violated any building codes or damaging an integral part of your property with improper installation.

Sure, you can install it yourself, but why take the risk? For a safe and convenient hot tub installation by industry professionals, contact Great Bay Spa today.
