    Square spa design questions

    I'm curious how forum members with square spa's configured seating areas and steps. Would love some feedback before I start building our pool/spa. What do you love? What would you change?

    One thing I am considering is a different pebble finish in the spa. My pebble finish in the pool will be wetedge prism matrix. I was considering the wetedge Primera stone (a polished pebble finish) for the spa to reduce wear/tear on my wife and friends expensive bikinis...

    Sorry you have not gotten any quicker responses.

    I think I would want the steps in a corner since most people would not be sitting in a corner.

    Have been busy and unable to return to this question. They broke ground today. Guess it's time to stay my pool build thread.

    Re: Square spa design questions

    I have an attached square spa. The spa is 7x7, it has jets on three of the four sides. Seating is designed for two people on each bench, so in accommodates six people as a spa or as a hot tub, eight (with two not having jets). My pool is PebbleTec, so to save on bathing suits, we had the seating benches tiled. The spa is at the same water level as my pool, so to step down into it there is a step set at a 45% angle across the corner where you enter.
