Can I put hot tub on my deck?

In general, most decks can withstand 100 lbs per square foot. So if a hot tub like the one in the example is under that weight, the average deck should be able to support it.

Similarly, is my deck strong enough for a hot tub?

As a general rule of thumb, if you have a deck that's raised only a couple feet or less, it can support about 100 pounds per square foot. So, if the spa is less than 100 pounds per square foot you likely have nothing to worry about.

Also Know, how heavy is a 6 person hot tub? On an average, a tub measuring 7 ½-foot by 7 ½-foot can hold 420 gallons of water and it can accommodate 6-7 people with an average weight of 185 pounds. The total weight of a hot tub with the above-mentioned measurements would be around 5,655 pounds(2).

Likewise, people ask, how much weight will a deck hold?

In short there's no one right answer to “how much can my deck hold?” However, one rule of thumb to keep in mind while answering the question is that the answer commonly is that if a deck is properly designed, it's built to hold 50 lbs. per square foot. It's possible that it could hold much more weight than 50 lbs.
