If our tubs are to be used indoors, a wet area or shower pan is essential as the tubs will leak initially. The tubs also require ventilation for any steam that builds up. Outdoor installation on a deck or patio requires no extra consideration for spilling water, but you should confirm with a builder that your deck is strong enough for the tub.
