North East: in ground year round hot tub?

Posted by andybp (My Page) on

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

RE: North East: in ground year round hot tub?

We live in Southern NH and chose to do a "portable spa" (above ground) with to go with our in ground pool. We did so so we could use it year round (as you stated you wanted to) and we do.

You can use an in-ground spa year round, but you have to have the heat going and pump running to keep it defrosted. Most people suggest against an in-ground hot tub with an in ground pool if you want to use it year-round, because most of the time the plumbing is connected...
