What are the Typical Dimensions of a Hot Tub?

Dimensions

You want that personal spa experience in your backyard. But do you have room? Hot tubs come in a generous variety of sizes, from compact plug-and-play spas all the way up to roomy “party tubs”. When sizing your spa, remember to leave room for steps, any seating you want around the hot tub, storage for equipment and supplies (like removable accessories, towels, water care products, and spare filters), and enough room to get in and out of the spa and socialize. Most hot tub owners also want to make room for landscaping, planters, or other items as decor. Now, let’s talk about particular hot tub dimensions.

Size Matters

Compact 2-person hot tubs are very popular with singles and couples. This size is ideal for for therapeutic purposes, as well as those romantic date nights. But you won’t be doing any entertaining in a 2-seater spa! Mid-size hot tubs seat four to six people, a perfect size for families and light entertaining (think inviting over the couple from next door). If you like to do much more entertaining than that, consider a larger model, such as a 7 to 8 person hot tub.

While hot tubs aren’t standardized from one company to another, manufacturers like Caldera and Freeflow have been around long enough to understand what sizes typically work in ordinary backyard environments. You’ll almost certainly find a size that fits ideally into your outdoor living space.

 If you opt for a cover lifter (which we strongly recommend), leave a little extra space around your hot tub. These covers lift off the spa and to the side, requiring a few extra inches of clearance.

Now offering Curbside Water Testing by Appointment Only!

Visit us online to schedule your 15-minute water testing consultation.

Simply select your store location and choose from the appointment slots available. Due to limited availability, we will only be able to accommodate up to (1) water test per household per week until further notice and increased staffing. 

Bring your water test bottle with a sample of your pool or spa water to your scheduled appointment. Please label the test bottle with your name, and leave it in the marked bin by the front door. Then, just wait in your car while we perform the water test. We will call you with your results and our recommendations for the products you will need to balance your pool or spa water. If you’d like to go ahead and get those products while you are here, we can deliver those curbside, as well. Please know that our staff have been instructed to leave all chemical purchases outside of the front door. Unfortunately, we will be unable to load in your car at this time. Just let us know that you would like to purchase chemicals when we call with your test results, and we can process your order over the phone. Once we have completed your water test, we will leave a copy of the printed out test results, along with your empty test bottle, in the marked bin outside the front door.

Due to the limitations of staff and anticipated demand for this service, we ask that you please arrive on-time for your scheduled appointment to ensure that we can have enough time for a complete and accurate consultation. In order to keep you, our valued customer, and our staff safe, we ask that you please adhere to social distancing guidelines and give our staff at least 6’ of distance during this interaction. Thank you for being a loyal Fronheiser Pools customer!
