Hot Tub Season is here!

Hot tub season is now here, so let's talk Hot Tub Base! The classic hot tub pad most homeowners think of when installing a hot tub is concrete. But this concrete surface is a costly option vs installing our DIY friendly CORE Recreational Foundation.

What our hot tub foundations offer the environment: happy soil (permeable systems do this!) and no CO2 emissions, so happy air. 

What we offer you, the homeowner: lightweight grids you can install yourself (save your back), easy to install (no waiting for contractors!), versatility in gravel colors and sizes, so a more aesthetic environment than concrete, as well as providing you a cost effective option to get your hot tub installed sooner than later!

Installation in three simple steps: excavate, lay the grid, and fill with gravel. Grab a shovel, set aside a few hours to work, and voila! you have a superior foundation for your hot tub, sauna, or other recreational structure.
