When you decide on putting a backyard water entertainment feature, you’ve got a vision in mind that you want to achieve. And your home swim spa should be the best it can be, your dream spa. So, where do you start in getting the vision in your mind to become a reality? There’s a lot that goes into the planning and execution from deciding on the best location in your yard to scheduling out the process to finally getting to relax in your Master Spa.

The right professional swim spa installer can help you through the process with ease.

We can help walk you through the steps of what needs to happen in order to make your Master Spa dreams a reality and a contractor will be able to help you navigate the process from space preparation to installation to starting it up for the first time and tips on regular maintenance.

Below are some tips and things to expect during your swim spa installation process from start to finish.

Getting Ready

The space in your backyard needs to be prepped for the Master Spas swim spa or hot tub. There are some rules when it comes to picking out a space as well. You need to check with your state and local laws to make sure you are the proper distance from electrical equipment and not near a water table. After that you need to make sure the area is level and ready for use. A contractor will be able to help you prep the area and walk you through everything that needs to be done.


When it comes to placement, state and local laws differ depending on where you live but there are some constant rules of thumb you should follow. Avoid any low hanging powerlines that may be running by your house. Know if you have underground power lines and avoid attempting to place any spa or pool near them. Make sure you have proper equipment access by leaving three feet on all sides to allow for easy maintenance.

Some Other Considerations

Make sure you discuss all aspects of the installation with your contractor, even if it doesn’t seem important. Keep in mind the traffic flow of your yard, the tree situation, the line of sight between you and your neighbors, if any children will be using the spa, and delivery options for your spa.
