Question: What does a hot tub need to sit on?

A hot tub requires a stable surface — whether its a concrete slab, reinforced deck, or firmly compacted soil with crushed gravel. Theres also the option to have the hot tub installed in the ground but that still requires a concrete vault.

How do you prepare the ground for a hot tub?

Level the ground where you intend to place the hot tub by removing bumps and filling in holes. A tractor works well for this, but you can use a shovel and a hoe if you prefer. Remove any large rocks or other debris, and do not place the hot tub in an area where there are large tree roots above or near the surface.

What is the best foundation for a hot tub?

A concrete surface is an excellent base for your hot tub as this material is extremely sturdy and long-lasting. If you have an existing patio made of concrete bricks, make sure its in good condition and is level (not angled for drainage). A customized poured concrete pad is an even better choice.
