High density polyethylene plastic is engineered and third party tested to withstand temperatures from -20° F. to +140° F. and to support up to 5,000 lbs. per sq. foot. NOTE: an 8’ x 8’ spa with 500 gallons of water and 4 to six bathers requires approximately 90 to 120 lbs. per sq. foot load bearing capacity. Best results are obtained by centering hot tubs on the EZ Pad.

AssemblySurface PreparationDocuments
1/4 to 1 inch crushed rock or pea gravel is the best choice for leveling.

Surface Preparation:
The EZ Pad modules can be placed on grass, dirt, sand or gravel. For best results, remove sod and prepare a level base. Module can be drilled through for electrical conduit placement. You may use any size crushed rock up to 1 inch and/or pea gravel for leveling.

It is not necessary to build a box frame for your EZ Pad.

If you choose to use a frame, EZ Pads should not be put on top of or overlap a frame with fill because settling of fill can cause uneven support. If you choose to use a frame to contain fill, ensure that the EZ Pad fits inside the frame.

Refer to these diagrams to choose the best method of surface preparation:

Check the Surface
Use an 8 foot 2" x 4" and a bubble level to check that your installation location is flat and level. Be sure to check both directions, 90 degrees from each other.
Flat Surface
If it is flat and level, you can put your EZ Pad right on top of grass, dirt, or other landscape material.
Slight Depressions
If there are small depressions in the surface, use some 3/8" crushed rock to fill in the depressions.
Make Level With Ground, Deck or Patio
You can also dig down 2" to make the EZ Pad level with the ground. This is a good idea if you want your hot tub or spa to be the same level as a patio or other ground surface.
Slight Slope
If there is a slight slope, a pressure treated 4" x 4" can be used to create a simple gravel stop, and a few bags of crushed rock to make it level. A couple of stakes driven into the ground behind the 4" x 4" will keep it from shifting. 5 cubic feet should be enough for a difference in height from the high side to the low side of about two inches. Typical bags of gravel are 80 lbs, and .8 cubic feet, or about 5 or 6 bags for 32 square feet, 2" deep. Remember to check that the surface is level before installing your EZ Pad.*
Greater Slope
If there is more of a slope, a pressure treated 4" x 4" can be used to create a simple dirt/gravel stop, and dirt can be moved from the higher side to make it level. A couple of stakes driven into the ground behind the 4" x 4" will keep it from shifting. Remember to check that the surface is level before installing your EZ Pad.*
