If you have bought or are looking at getting a hot tub this summer then it is a good idea to think about where it will go. As it runs off the mains a plug needs to be within reach, so it cannot be too far away from your main house. A patio is a good idea, however the condition of peoples patios will vary, some may have have had a new patio put down that is perfectly level, with nice smooth slabs, others may have a old patio that has been there since the house was built and it has seen better days.

They are quick and easy to lay, as they lock into place there is no need for special tools and knowledge to do this.The quality finish will make your patio look great and also give a spa feel around your hot tub. It will also be nicer to walk across when getting in and out of the spa, with the gaps between the wooden slats water can also easily drain through.

It is nice to walk over and also water resistant making it ideal for when you get out.
