You are looking for the cocooning, intimacy and relaxation aspect of the spa Do you want to have relaxation sessions in complete privacy? Need daily relaxation? As with the outdoor spa, you can install any type of indoor spa (built-in spa, portable spa, inflatable spa, swim spa) and any type of material with tropic spa.
Benefits of the indoor spa:
- No need to keep the spa running all the time (no risk of freezing!)
- No environmental pollution
- We don't care about the weather at all
Indoor spa constraints:
However, there are several constraints to consider before considering installing an indoor spa:
You have to choose the size of your spa according to the location chosen, and especially its accessibility (will it go through the door frame? By the stairs? ...).
You must also be vigilant about the size of your room (ceiling height, size of the room). Do not plan too big a spa in too small a room. It's not aesthetically great, let alone the humidity ...
Make sure that the floor can withstand the maximum weight of the spa. Maybe some strengthening of the soil will be necessary. On average, a spa weighs 400-600kg / m2 and the standard for apartments is 250-300kg / m2.
Unless the ventilation of the room is efficient, it is impossible to install the spa in a standard room of your home ... Unless humidity, condensation and mold do not bother you! It is therefore necessary to make an installation according to these constraints.
The hot water in your spa gives off a lot of heat and humidity in a closed room. We also encounter the same humidity problem with an indoor swimming pool, but the phenomenon is even more important for a spa. Indeed, the water temperature being very high compared to that of the room, evaporation is strong. And the larger the spa, or the smaller the room, the greater the problem will be. Good ventilation is essential for your comfort and for the durability of the equipment in the room (risk of mold and deterioration of the walls, wear of the floor, infiltration of wood, etc.).
This is why, if the ventilation is not good or the room has few openings, it is essential to equip it with a dehumidifier (or an air extractor).
There is always the possibility of a leak. So the environment around and under the spa should be water resistant and preferably waterproof. The ground must be able to withstand water projections as well as any leaks. It is therefore important to choose the materials constituting the floor carefully: they must be non-slip (when wet) and must withstand constant exposure to water and chemicals.
Many indoor spas are actually located on a veranda or in an extension of the house. It's nice to have light coming in as well as a nice view outside.
You can also fit out a whole room in the house for the spa ... A room dedicated to calm, relaxation and well-being.
