Your spa will be delivered curbside to your home. It is delivered on end, wrapped, on a sturdy pallet for convenient placement. You will need to arrange to have your spa placed in your desired location. When your spa delivery company calls to set up a delivery appointment, you may choose to make arrangements with them to place your spa for an additional fee. If that is not a service they can provide, we recommend consulting professionals who have experience moving large items.
Carefully review the route that the spa will take through your property. Make sure there is sufficient clearance. Keep in mind an Evolution acrylic spa, when wrapped on a pallet, is approximately 96" high x 94" wide x 40" deep… and a rotationally molded spa, on its pallet will measure 65-85" high x 72-80" wide x 32-37" deep, depending on the model.
Are there any obstacles along the way? Low hanging branches? Bushes? Air conditioning or heating units?
Please note that an empty acrylic spa weighs close to 1000 lbs., and a rotationally molded spa 330-435 lbs., so choose the safest and most direct route possible. We recommend hiring professionals to avoid physical harm or property damage.
Choose your location…
Consider your view from the spa as well as your view of the spa. Keep in mind seasonal changes in landscape. Areas that are very private in warmer months might not be so private when leaves have fallen. Consider planting some additional non-deciduous plants or trees to create a year-round private retreat in your own backyard.
• Do not place spa within 10' (3m) of overhead power lines.
• Does your city or county require any permits for your installation?
• Are any barriers or fencing required in your area to prevent children from accessing an unattended spa?
If you choose to install a gazebo or other decorative structure around your spa, keep in mind accessibility to your spa’s components. It is always best to design special installations so that the spa’s convenient side access panels or equipment access door can be reached.
Consider the weight of the spa…
When installing your spa on a deck or other structure, please consult a qualified contractor to ensure the structure will support the weight of your spa. To properly identify the weight of your new spa when full, remember water weighs 8.33 lbs. per gallon. For example, an average Evolution acrylic spa holds approximately 350 gallons of water. Using this formula, you will find that the weight of the water alone is 2,916 lbs. Combined with the dry weight of the spa, many Evolution acrylic spas will weigh close to 4,000 lbs. when full of water. Add to this the weight of the occupants.
Our line of smaller, fully rotationally molded spas weigh far less, ranging from 2,050 - 2,750 lbs., filled. Add to this the weight of the occupants.
The best foundation…
We recommend placing your spa on a solid, level, stable surface such as concrete, stone or pavers… even a base of fine stones or gravel will work. Or you may place your Evolution Spa on a deck engineered to hold the weight of your filled spa and its occupants. The Evolution Spa is designed with a substantial, insulated and fully integrated base that is more than 10X thicker than the industry standard.
