After this, it is possible to install a jacuzzi in the grass, but you'll have to say goodbye to that particular part of the same. As we will see later, the hot tubs are bad for the lawn.

The random splashing won't harm anything, but the water that accumulates in a point or leaking out of the jacuzzi to the lawn will burn out.

However, if you leave the lid open and let the levels of bromine or chlorine to fall well below 1 ppm, you can pour a jacuzzi treated with chlorine in the grass safely. In reality, this small amount can help the plants to thrive, and your lawn can become more green as a result.

Is it possible to put an jacuzzi inflatable inflatable on artificial grass?

Due to its simplicity of maintenance, the manicured lawns are rapidly replacing the natural grass in the gardens of the people. Ofrecen la estética atractiva del césped natural sin la suciedad. Son menos propensos a ser dañados por las salpicaduras de productos químicos o el peso de la bañera, pero ¿son el lugar ideal para una bañera de hidromasaje?

Although it may seem ideal, keep in mind a few things before you install your jacuzzi on artificial turf.

The base that has the artificial turf can be a surface stupendous always be placed on a concrete slab or other level surface, rather than on bare soil or sand spot, that you can navigate and move around.

The problems of artificial turf

To get strength, bounce and a softer feel, some imitation products of grass include a filler of rubber, however, these small grains can stick to your feet, enter in your spa water and eventually clog your filters.

Although it is not as horrible as the above, the alternative is an infill of sand. Your filtration system will continue to be subject to an additional effort.

What type of synthetic turf?

The artificial turf comes in three different varieties, and can be manufactured with polyethylene, nylon or polypropylene. Both have advantages and disadvantages when used as the basis of the spa inflatable.

The material looks more realistic is the PP (polypropylene), but it is not very durable and is fade with direct sunlight (and who you want your spa to the shade?) In addition, the intense traffic of people will damage the blades, which will give a nice look to be of short duration.

Although you do not have the same natural look that the other two, the nylon is the material of artificial grass is more resistant. Not away, but on a hot summer day, it will heat up a lot, and will not be very comfortable for bare feet.

The most popular material for the artificial turf is polyethylene, which has a fantastic look, but a major drawback:It is non-porous, which makes it wonderful for the convenience of the cleaning and the prevention of the retention of the pet smells, but it's not great when your spa needs to be drained.

Paving or flooring for the patio or garden

Base gravel

La grava es una de nuestras principales opciones para una base de bañera de hidromasaje, ya que es extremadamente duradera y soporta bien las bañeras de hidromasaje a la vez que proporciona un buen drenaje.

A concrete base

A choice of strong base is a slab of concrete, which can support the weight of a jacuzzi complete with ease.

Tiles foam

Although there are bases in the traditional sense, they can be used to protect the databases of the hot tubs of things sharp, add a padded cozy, especially if your jacuzzi portable is installed on a concrete floor, and add more insulation.

If you're going to put a jacuzzi on the grass, do it well

What if the only space available for a spainflablee is the grass? We advise to dig a hole in the ground, which will include the spa, then fill it with concrete bases or placing slabs yard, which are excellent bases. You must place if you can an awning or cloth made of plastic to prevent punctures or tears.

You must first remove the turf and topsoil to a depth of about 15 centimeters. You can cover the soil with a membrane antihierbas and then fill it with several inches of sand. After that, you need to be compacted before the gravel, concrete, or the slabs of the courtyard will be added to.

Remember that in addition to a robust base, you may also need to buy a hose adapter to be able to empty from time to time the unit away from the lawn.
