In spite of having all these positive features, this Smart Deck spa support system is not having good user rating and review in Amazon’s official website. There are also other spa deck patios in market which are having two steps. They have comparatively better user ratings and reviews rather than Smart Deck Spa Support patio. But all these two stepped patios are much space consuming than this patio, whereas both are having almost similar supporting volume of spa weight. So you should decide to purchase the spa supporting deck checking all the pros and cons for both of the alternatives.

Spa Deck Pad Assembly Instructions:
Step1:You need to arrange for ground preparation first. The ground surface requires to be flat and level within a bubble on a level. Almost any kind of surface is acceptable for a Smart Deck. Lay each deck piece out in the pattern you are going to assemble with the top flat surface down. Each deck part needs to have two H brackets to lock the parts together on each side of the part except the very outside of the deck pattern. Position H bracket over J slot on two adjacent pads. Then push H bracket down into J slot. Afterwards, push H bracket forward in J slot and rotate H bracket down into pads. Then push H bracket down until the lock tabs engage in sides of the pads. A rubber mallet should be used to tap the brackets into place.
Step2:Now, you need to use the optional trim kit. Push bullnose straight edging piece down into the slots on the ends of pads until the lock tab engages into the pad.
Step3:Finally, push bullnose corner piece straight down into the slots on the ends of bullnose straight edging until bullnose corner piece snaps into the edging. Now, you are done with getting the Smart Deck pad fully assembled.
Smart Deck Spa Support System has1 star out of 5 in Amazon’s official website as reviewed by the users (click here to see). There is a very few number of users who have used this Spa Deck patio. And whoever used it, rated itvery dissatisfactory.They have complained about bad service and quick damage. Even though it is having a seemingly hardy structural ribbing cage, it is not good from longevity perspective. The users have used other alternative subsidiary accessories for supporting spa deck like: Intex 85 inches Pure Spa Portable Bubble Massage Spa Set, SaluSpa Paris AirJet Inflatable Hot Tub with LED light show, MSPA M-1155 Luxury Exotic Outdoor Spas etc. which have better user ratings for their good services.
