    Where should I put a hot tub?


    Can I put my new inflatable hot tub on top of my decking or does it need to be on the stone paving instead?

    "It depends on how well sorted the decking is and secondly the weight of your hot tub when it is full of water and had people in it.

    Do you have access to the bottom of your decking to see how well supported it is?"

    "You can put a hot tub anywhere as long as the base is level and strong. Make sure your decking is reinforced, and with anything inflatable make sure there isn’t any damaged decking or screws showing."

    "To answer your question yes you could put it up on the decking as long as it was laid properly and is secure then there shouldn't be a problem however if you are unsure how secure the decking is and worry it may not take the weight then it would be best to place it on the on the paving area either way you would need to make sure the surface area is level and free of any sharp stones etc that could pierce the matterial of the tub"

    "Yes you can ,You should put your hot tub on a solid level base, such as a decking or concrete base or paving Setting a hot tub directly on the ground can cause it to sink on one side"
