Infinity Hot Tub – DIY-built?

DIY Infinity Hot Tub

DIY Infinity Hot Tub? Is this possible? Well, hopefully by the time you get to the end of this case study you will see and learn that it totally is.

Chris from Utah got in touch with me as he knew exactly what he wanted to build. He has even modelled it up in 3D – he just didn’t know how to plumb it in – this is where I came in.

Not all of the consultancy work that I do is a full design, sometimes I’m drafted in to work on the plumbing, or even the structural build too.

So back to Chris in Utah and his journey with his DIY Infinity Hot Tub.

Trey’s DIY Hot Tub Build – Germany

Trey's DIY Hot Tub Build

It always surprises me just how much communication back and forth I have with customers when I come to put these case studies together. Even more so when I am starting to write it up well over a year since the initial contact. I must have well over 150 emails and so many photos back and forth. Some are of parts and how to fit them so I am not going to include those in this case study. But I will include as many of the pics that Trey very kindly has sent me.

Trey, US services Veteran now living in Germany got in touch with me through the website, on the regular DIY Form that you can find at the bottom of this page.

Fibreglass Hot Tub Refurbishment – Case Study

Not every DIY Hot Tub project that I work on is a new design and build. I do a lot of “rescue projects” where tubs and pool are either partly done or partly designed and the customer need help to finish things off. The other line of work that I do is refurbishments and help people get non-working tubs back in action. 

This project is more of a hybrid between a refurbishment and a new build than anything. Mark came to me wanting to remove his fibreglass hot tub that had seen better days and replace it with a poured concrete tub but keep most of the plumbing he already had.

I love it when a plan comes together

“I love it when a plan comes together”. Anyone spot the 1980s popular TV culture reference to the A-Team? Probably my favourite TV program as a child. Perhaps, dare I say it how I got into the whole “DIY thing”. I always marvelled at the inventions the A Team cobbled together. I loved making things as a kid. I still love making and creating “things” today. I remember vividly playing “A-Team” with my younger brother – I was always Hannibal Smith – the “man with a plan”.

Mel’s In Ground Hot tub Pavilion – Case Study

When Mel got in touch back in July of 2021, his goal was pretty straight forward. He had sent me a picture of a pavilion with an on ground hot tub that you can see below. This was the inspiration and this is what he was setting out to achieve. Oak framed pavilion with an in ground hot tub. Perfect.
