Can You Add a Hot Tub to a Pool?

After many more complex aquarium installations and acrylic glass pool and spa installation projects, we can confirm 100% that the integration of a hot tub into a pool is completely doable. By installing the hot tub inside the pool, you will create a seamless design.

Typically, we place them either in one corner or in the middle of the pool. The pool and yard design are the key factors that determine the tub placement. So, how can you put a hot tub in an acrylic pool without any damage?

Well, the integration may cause some issues that you may have been concerned about, like damaging the structure of the existing pool. There are some factors to consider before you decide to install a hot tub in an acrylic pool.

Factors to Consider When Installing a Hot Tub in an Acrylic Pool

To avoid complicating the situation or exposing yourself to additional costs, consider the following:

  • Weight of the tub – some of you asked can the weight of a hot tub affect the structural integrity of an acrylic pool, and the answer is yes. The weight of the hot tub can cause structural damage to the existing pool. We always point out that the tub must be in accordance with the pool weight’s capacity.
  • Size of the tub – the size of the tub must be proportionate to the pool. Otherwise, it may overwhelm the pool or look too small compared to the pool.
  • Functionality – the hot tub increases the aesthetics and functionality of the pool. Therefore, it’s important to place it in an accessible location, facing a good view. Additionally, it must not obstruct the pool flow.

These are the primary factors you must consider when placing a hot tub in your acrylic pool. The secondary factors are related to the aesthetics of your pool. Our designers have collaborated on similar projects and delivered unique and luxurious designs that elevate the looks and functionality of the pool.
