Do you provide hot tub hookups?
Yes! Pricing depends on how far your hot tub or spa is from your central circuit breaker box. Contact Main Stream Electric and we will give you a free estimate for hot tub and spa wiring.
What about concrete? Do I have to lay concrete before I install my hot tub?
A concrete pad is the best base for a hot tub or spa. All hot tubs should sit on a 3.5 inch solid surface with reinforcement wire. If you are unsure of where you want your hot tub, it’s best to contact a concrete contractor. If you’d rather sink your hot tub partially in the ground, you will need a retaining wall built around it with a clearance of at least 12 inches around the tub.
I already have a deck. Can I install my spa on my existing deck?
Yes, it is possible to install a spa on an existing deck. One thing to take into consideration though is the weight of your hot tub. Most decks are not designed to support a filled hot tub. It’s critical to have an engineer look at the deck to determine if it can withstand the weight. The average filled hot tub weighs 5000 pounds or more!
