PREPARE YOUR YARD

Once you have decided to add a Strong Spas hot tub as the newest centerpiece to your backyard getaway, all there is left to do is to prepare your yard for its arrival. Consider things such as the space needed, outlet, entrance to the tub, and make sure that the addition of the hot tub will not be blocking access to any utilities to your house.

THE TYPES
OF HOT TUBS

There are two kinds of hot tubs: portable hot tubs and spas and permanent hot tubs and spas. Portable spas are self-contained and sit above ground. Permanent spas are built into the ground and are usually made of a material such as cement.

All Strong hot tubs and spas are portable spas and don’t require the expense of permanent installation. Maintenance and service are also easier with a portable spa. Thanks to our 2-inch thick insulated base, Strong Spas don’t even require a permanent concrete pad, as some other manufacturer’s do. Strong spas can be set on any flat level surface.

CAPACITY OF THE HOT TUB

Hot tubs are available in several sizes. Make sure to get a hot tub that is large enough to hold everyone you want it to, but slim enough to fit the space you have available. Get a head-count of your family members and measure the space of your yard!

HOT TUB LOCATION

Before you choose a hot tub, decide where you want to place it. Most people like to have their hot tubs on a deck or patio, but the most important thing in deciding where to put it is to find a spot close to an electrical source and on level, sturdy ground or surface.

HOT TUB APPEARANCE

Hot tubs are available with different interiors and exteriors. Choose a color and style that will be pleasing to you and that will look nice in your backyard. Strong Spas’ beautiful cabinets are available in a variety of looks and colors to suit any backyard décor.

HOT TUB JETTING

Hot tubs generally offer three different kinds of hot water jet technology. Water jets offer the strongest and most concentrated massaging, and are adjustable to provide the most comfortable massage possible. Air jets give you softer, gentler pressure similar to a champaign effect. All of our hot tubs offer a third type of jet known as the venturi that combines both water and air. This presents the perfect combination. You are in control of the amount of bubbling that is right for you.

HOT TUB SEATING

Strong Spas offers several different seats within each of our tubs. The perfect seat for you will depend on your height. Ideally, the tub should have seats that completely submerge you up to your shoulders, along with seats that keep you almost out of the water so you can cool down. Our multilevel seating is designed to provide the most comfortable height for people of every shape and size. Even young users will be able to find a comfortable seat.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

Your spa’s operating cost will be primarily determined by its ability to retain heat. Ensure that the hot tub has effective insulation for the shell and plumbing. Strong Spas’ ENERGY-LOK insulation systems are essential to keeping heat in and cold out.

HOT TUB SAFETY

Check to make sure the hot tub you are considering buying is listed by a recognized independent testing agency such as UL or ETL. Also, make sure you use a qualified electrician to connect the electrical service to the spa.

FOLDING STEPS &
TOWEL HOLDER

Step or store! Our unique, space-saving foldaway hot tub steps and towel holder provide the ultimate convenience for your hot tub. Steps retract into the body of the hot tub to stay clean and dry. By folding away steps when not in use, it discourages children and pets from climbing into the hot tub when unattended. In addition, our towel holder keeps your linens warm, dry and within close proximity to you and your guests.

ADDITIONAL
HOT TUB FEATURES

All hot tubs should have a cover to keep the heat inside. Use a locking cover when you need to keep people out of your hot tub, such as small children. The locks are also great in areas with strong winds. Waterfalls are another extra feature you should consider. They can add a very attractive element to your spa, and the sound of falling water is very relaxing. Strong is proud to offer these features to make your experience just right for your family.
