As we know it today, sitting in hot tubs has been around for centuries, with modern-day hot tubs inspired by US servicemen stationed in Japan. Heath and well-being by sitting in hot water is part of Japanese culture, and the idea landed in California in the 1960s. The Japanese tub was not an 8 person hot tub, but it served its purpose for two people. It was a perfect fusion between the swimming pool industry and creating hot water that brought the 8 person hot tubs to life. Instead of just a swimming pool, a hot tub became an option for the first time, and the notion to party in an 8 person hot tub was born. Swimming pool companies created 8 person hot tub shells, and their dealers plumbed and fitted them with heaters, pumps, and filters. The rich and the famously placed thousands of orders, which formed the hot tub business as we know it today. An 8 person hot tub occupies almost twice as much deck space as a 4 person hot tub, so installing it adjacent to the deck is common. Dependent upon how high the deck is off the ground, installing it this way may create the perfect height for entering and exiting.
