Do I Need to Pour a Concrete Slab to Put a Hot Tub in the Back Yard?

My back yard is flat and the surface is paving stones, do I really need to pour a concrete slab if I want to put in a hot tub? If I moved I’m sure I’d want to take the tub and then there would be a big slab it the backyard no on would want there.

      No…….No……..No……..you don’t have to pour a slab? Just make all your power, water and rest safe so no one can get hurt and you are ok at that.

      The tub just needs to be level…and stay level. Concrete, wood deck or sand will work fine.

      It really depends on how thick the base is under the paving stones. 3" – 6" is pretty common. If your base is only 3" then I wouldn’t expect the patio to hold up too well over the years. 6 inches should be plenty.

      I would lay 4′ X 8′ X 3/4" sheets of pressure treated plywood over the stones to insure the tub is level. The tub can crack if there is a low spot and the tub doesn’t make full contact.

      Don’t know your building code, but you should be able to put it on concrete blocks

      Over paving stones is ok.

      You may have to use some shims to level the tub.
      Shims should be treated or red wood.
