Thread: Raising a Hot Tub?

    Raising a Hot Tub?

    I'm in the process of re-working our backyard, adding a pool, etc. We have an existing hot tub that sits on a concrete slab. Once the pool is set this week we will be building a deck that ties the hot tub into the pool.

    My question is: if needed, how should we go about raising the hot tub up (probably a couple inches) to meet the level of the pool deck? What would be needed underneath to support it properly?

    How about just a nice wolmanized 2x4 frame lying flat if it's still gonna be on the slab to boot? Pavers come in varying thicknesses too.

    Yes, it'll still be on the slab. I guess that was my main concern - does the raised base need to be a completely solid or can it be a frame on say 16" centers? I'm not sure if the tubs can support the water weight without a solid base.
