North East: in ground year round hot tub?

andybpJuly 11, 2011

We live in Pennsylvania, about 40 minutes north of Philadelphia. We want a hot tub that we can use year round but really want the look of an in ground spa.

I don't believe an in ground spa installed by a pool company can be used year round and I haven't been able to find many pictures of above ground spas installed to look in ground.

Has anyone does this? If yes, can you advise how and post photos?

Thanks in advance for your help
