We are quite often asked if a spa can be sunken down into decking. This is possible but needs some thought. Caution must be taken that if a spa is below floor level the area must not fill up with water and damage the spa.
Also thought needs to be given for maintenance access. In this case an area of decking could be lifted out and a support that would have stopped the hot tub door opening was removable as it rested in joist hangers.
The two pictures above and two pictures below show a hot tub being delivered in East Sussex. Not all spas are delivered like this but quite often this is the method. In this case the spa was an ex-demonstration model from a special offer, new spas come wrapped and packaged to protect them. The spa is delivered on a flat bad trailer behind a van so there is not usually problems with large trucks in residential roads. The hot tub is then tilted off the trailer on to a special trolley. A total of four people is usually a good number (apart from larger spas) so two can be at each end. Usually the critical measurement is the narrowest part of the journey, compare this to the height of the spa.
