Hot Tub Installation in Edmonton: What You Need to Know
Ready to take the plunge and install that hot tub you have always been dreaming of? Whether you have already chosen the perfect model or are just considering the idea of a hot tub for your backyard, a little research can go a long way.

Considerations for Installing Your Backyard Hot Tub
Read the list of considerations below and contact our Edmonton plumbing professionals to determine how we can make installing your hot tub as easy as possible.
Keep these factors in mind when deciding on the placement and size of your backyard hot tub:
- Budget: Different models will require different levels of heating and water. Ask about efficiency, running times, and maintenance costs. Crunch the numbers before committing to a year-round hot tub.
- Location: If you are lucky enough to have a great location nearby your home, the plumbing installation costs will be significantly lower. The further from your house, the further electrical wiring and plumbing connections will need to extend.
- Support: Hot tubs are heavy, especially when they are filled with water and people! The ground can shift with different seasons, quick freezes, and thawing, so having a solid base is crucial for a hot tub that operates properly and works for years to come.
- Maintenance: In addition to cost factors, maintenance is an important consideration in terms of monitoring water quality, pH levels, and chemicals. You will also need to clean the filters and change the water.
- Value: Even if selling your home is only an idea for the very distant future, a hot tub can add a lot of curb appeal to your property. Keep this in mind with cost and when determining the location and winterization of your hot tub.
