Top 10 Austin Hot Tub Stores

Hot tub laws in Austin, Texas

Most hot tubs and spas you buy in Austin do not require a building permit. A permit is only necessary for prefabricated pools and hot tubs that hold more than 5,000 gallons, and a typical residential hot tub holds around 400 gallons of water.

However, the City of Austin does require several safety measures for all hot tubs. You must have an enclosure around your hot tub that’s at least 4 feet tall with a self-closing and locking gate. Hot tubs also have to be at least 10 feet away from city utility equipment such as power lines and meters. For pools and spas larger than 5,000 gallons, fill out this permit application.

Austin hot tub FAQ

Can a deck support a hot tub?
Sometimes. If you’re thinking about building a deck for your hot tub or putting a hot tub on an existing deck, check with a general contractor first. Large hot tubs weigh around 6,000 pounds when filled with water, and a contractor can tell you if your deck can support the weight.
Do I need a permit for a swim spa?
No. You do not need a residential swimming pool permit for a swim spa in Austin. Swim spas hold less than 5,000 gallons, so they don’t require a permit.
What is a portable hot tub?
A portable hot tub comes with built-in jets, plumbing and heating. Portable tubs offer a lot of the same features as inground tubs but are more affordable and work in a variety of settings. They can remain above ground, be built into a deck or vaulted into the ground. Portable hot tubs typically accommodate two to eight people and come in many shapes and sizes.
How do you take care of hot tubs?
Basic hot tub maintenance includes testing chemical levels and cleaning filters weekly. Hot tubs should be drained every three to four months to clean all surfaces and plumbing. You should replace the filters every one to two years.
Can you use a hot tub all year long in Austin, TX?
Living in Austin means hot, humid summers with highs in the triple digits. Winters can be surprisingly cold, but rarely does it get below freezing or snow. The weather doesn’t affect the hot tub itself, but you may not enjoy soaking in your hot tub during the day in the middle of August — although Austin’s night temperatures are often low enough for comfortable hot tub use year-round.
