There are several areas you’ll be considering if you’re installing a new hot tub on your property, and one of these is the installation method. There are a few different options here, including in-ground spas, above-ground spas, portable spas and some other hybrid selections as well.
At Dolphin Pools & Spas, we’re proud to serve as a licensed Bullfrog spa dealer and provider of high-quality Gunite spas. Within this latter area, our primary services are found in the installation of in-ground hot tubs, which hold several specific benefits for those considering them. What are some of the top reasons clients look toward in-ground spas? Here’s a primer.
First and foremost, one of the key advantages of in-ground spas is the huge variety of materials that can be used for it. There’s virtually no limitation here among materials typically used for spas: Stone and concrete are the most common, yes, but there are tons of other options such as acrylic, vinyl, tiles and several others.
For our Gunite spas, we use a rebar framework that’s extremely strong and durable. We also customize your hot tub in numerous ways.
As we just touched on, the potential for customization with an in-ground spa is virtually limitless. You can choose any shape you wish, whether it’s a traditional rectangle or circle or something more unique to fit your outdoor setup. In addition, any size template you choose is attainable within reason.
On top of this, there are different options for submerging in terms of an in-ground spa. The most common is the fully submerged template, but you can also choose partially-exposed in-ground spas that offer a combination look and feel.
Blending and Aesthetics
For many who are installing them, the aesthetics of a hot tub are just as important as the practical features. Spas are often the perfect complement to a pool or a similar outdoor setup, and in-ground spas are particularly beneficial because of how easily they can be blended in with your current theme. A hot tub can be a focal point if you want it to be, or it can be a background accent for a larger pool and chair arrangement; there are numerous options in between, as well.
Finally, do you have other features that are part of the setup, or that you want to be? They’re incredibly easy to integrate with an in-ground spa, whether we’re talking water features like waterfalls or fountains, audio features like speakers, or even lights and other aesthetic elements.
