Hot Tubs – No Building Permits Required

A lot of questions pop up once you’ve decided to bring home a spa. One of the most common we get here at Brothers Pool is whether a building permit is required. Nope, no building permit required!

In general, a prefabricated, above-ground pool, (a hot tub applies in this sense), that holds less than 5000 gallons of water does not require a building permit.

That said, there are a few other things you’ll want to consider. First, while you don’t need a building permit, you’ll almost certainly need an electrical permit. And whether you’re installing your hot tub on an existing deck or patio, or you’re working with a contractor to put in a new foundation pad, you’ll definitely need an electrician to do the installing.

If you’re putting in a new foundation, or installing your hot tub any distance from your house, you may need a plumber and a plumbing permit as well.

Along this same vein, before you go ahead with picking the location and installing your hot tub, it’s a good idea to double check if there are any neighborhood or Homeowner’s Association covenants that would throw a wrench in your plans. What kind of cover will you have on your hot tub? If it’s not a locking one, your subdivision or city may require a safety fence.

Installing your hot tub and then discovering you’ve violated your subdivision’s covenants in some way would be a terrible surprise, but with a little prior planning, all of these issues can be overcome pretty easily. We’re always happy to help with any other questions that may come up as you’re deciding on the perfect hot tub for your family. Contact us with any other thoughts. Ready to choose your ideal spa?
