We found a good deal on a small spa (DreamMaker) on Craigslist, pick it up tomorrow. I had assume the spa would have some means of leveling but I just googled the manuals and find that the site needs to be level. hmmm.
So we are going to put it on our (new) paver patio and the pavers are pitched by design. I just checked the site we intend and in the 6x6' footprint we have a pitch of about 1/2" front/back and 3/8" side/side. Here are the options I've come up with so far:
- ignore it and let the spa tilt
- build a bed of sand to level the base
- call the paver guy back and have the pavers reset at level
Personally I think the pitch is a bit too much to ignore and the manual stresses how important it is to be level.
I like the sand bed idea but I suppose the sand could scour out after a few heavy rains?
I'm leaning towards having the pavers reset, not sure how much effort that would be.
Any experience, opinions or other solutions?
