Having a hot tub is an effective way to unwind and relax after a tiring day at work, spend some time with yourself or your tight circle of close friends while relieving your sore muscles in jets of bubbles.
Another great addition for your inflatable hot tub is by adding an enclosure in or around your inflateble hot tubs center for maximum relaxation and privacy.
What is a Hot Tub Enclosure?
An enclosure is an area that is sealed off with either a natural or artificial barrier.
This simply means you will be closing off your hot tub into a more private sanctuary where you can be in complete peace.
Although an enclosure may seem like a daunting project, it’s actually a very fast and simple project that allows you to completely customise anyway you want your enclosure to be, whether you want to be protected from the elements or have an exclusive area all to yourself, but before you run off to the nearest hardware or DIY shop, sit down and learn what kinds of enclosure you’d like to do for your inflatable hot tub.
Getting Started with Your Enclosure:
Before you start putting up your enclosure, make sure that the ground where you will be putting it on is flat, sturdy, and free of any obstacles such as sharp rocks and twigs.
The next thing you want to do is to build a concrete pad, determine the appropriate size and shape of your inflatable hot tubs, excavate the ground up to 4 inches deep, make sure to leave holes so you can insert the posts afterwards and then top it with concrete then smooth it over and leave it overnight until it hardens and dries completely.
The next thing you want to do is to set up the posts, these posts will make up the enclosure. Using a spade or large shovel, dig holes that are 10 inches deep, position these holes at least 3 feet apart. For straight posts make sure that you set them on the edge of the concrete pad, for round or oval posts, make sure you set at least 1 foot apart from the edge to make way for the walls. Pour concrete again and leave it for at least 8 hours or overnight before you start building the walls. Make sure you leave enough space for an entrance.
Once the concrete has settled, you may now build walls to surround your posts, using ¾ deck screws, attach lattice boards, also make sure to position the deck screws at the top, bottom, and especially the sides to give your enclosure more stability.
When you feel satisfied with your enclosure, you may also add in vines (whether plastic or real) or even a string of lights.
You may also add a cover, similar to that of a canopy or a tent, above your enclosure or on the sides of it.
Having an enclosure for your inflatable hot tub isn’t limited to building one, you may also combine natural elements such as plants, tree, flowers to enhance your sanctuary. You may also purchase enclosures online that are also inflatable.
Don’t be afraid to mix and match both artificial and natural elements for your enclosure, a simple search on Pinterest can provide you with thousands of ideas for an enclosure in your secret getaway.
