We've been considering the idea of adding a hot tub to the corner of our existing pool or if not a spill over type tub, at least a free standing one. I haven't done much research on the subject yet, but I'm getting started on gathering info. I'm fairly handy when it comes to building/designing things, but I'm looking for info from those of you who might have undertaken a project such as this in the past. What are the positives and negatives? Can I use existing equipment (heater) or would I be better off making it a completely separate system? Should I just construct a place to drop in a tub and not worry with a full DIY project?
What say ye, oh wise members of this great forum?
