One of the most luxurious benefits life has to offer is the ability to relax and soak in a hot tub. Simply being able to lie back and let the hot water and streaming bubbles release the stresses and strains life brings to bear can be the most important part of the day. For those who don't own a hot tub or spa, deciding to purchase one can actually be a troublesome decision since you may not know if you can find a hot tub that will go where you need it to go.

Most times, if you're putting a hot tub on a deck or in an outdoor setting, you'll be able to purchase a standard hot tub from your local dealer and not have any issues. Even storing things like additional supplies and your spa covers isn't much of an issue in an outdoor setting. Indoor settings and cramped decks can be a different story, however.


If you're planning to install an indoor spa in your bathroom or have limited space on your deck or in your outdoor areas, a custom spa or hot tub may be your best solution. While standard hot tubs and spas normally come in square or oval configurations, custom tubs and spas can come in other shapes and styles such as a rectangle to replace a standard tub/shower installation.


Another benefit of going for a custom hot tub or spa is the availability of tub materials such as copper or stainless steel instead of the typical fiberglass used in most hot tub and spa offerings. Not only are copper and stainless much more durable, some say the benefits of copper have a medicinal value that is unsurpassed when it comes to getting the most out of your hot tub or spa benefits.


If you do decide to install a custom hot tub or spa, you don't have to worry about keeping it safe and clean, even outdoors. Custom hot tub and spa covers are readily available or can be made to fit your custom hot tub.


Happy Tubbing!
