Install a jacuzzi – 5 tips for you who want a spa bath!
1. Select a location
Choose a place on the plot or terrace where you want to place your jacuzzi. If the bath is to be on the terrace, you can choose to have it on top or lower it. Keep in mind that the patio must have enough bearing capacity to withstand the weight. If you instead want your jacuzzi on the plot, it is smart to choose a place near the house to make it easier to take a winter bath. Access to electricity and plumbing are other factors that affect the location of your bath. If you have the opportunity to place the bath under a roof or a pergola, it can be a smart idea to protect it from snow and rain. Feel free to enlist the help of an expert to determine the perfect location!
2. Make a budget
How much would you be prepared to pay for a jacuzzi? Put together a budget where you count on the jacuzzi, accessories and cost of installation.
The price of the jacuzzi varies greatly depending on the size and functionality. An inflatable bath is a cheaper alternative than fixed baths. The disadvantage of inflatable baths is that they are usually not as comfortable as fixed baths, and lack some features that you can otherwise get. An “ordinary” fixed bath usually costs between 50,000 – 100,000 kronor. A tip is to buy a jacuzzi on sale, for example. Always check which accessories are included and how long the warranty is valid.
3. Find the right jacuzzi
A good first step is to think about how big the bath should be. Do you want a hot tub for two or is it important that friends and family can fit?
What features do you want the jacuzzi to have? The range of features is many and you can get everything from adjustable massage functions to music systems and soft cushions. Write down your wishes on a list and take them to the store for help finding your way in the jungle of swimming.
The fact that the jacuzzi is easy to clean is important to many. Therefore, check that the lid is included in the price. Lids protect the bath during the winter, but also against dirt and leaves and other things that can fall into the water. Feel free to choose an insulated lid to get a more energy-efficient heating.

5. Take care of your jacuzzi
Once your jacuzzi is in place, it is important to maintain the bath. Change the water 2-3 times per season and clean the filter once a month.
