I would like to place a hot tub on my balcony, and need help to double check if my floor joist can handle the load. I have have 2 x 12 floor joist @ 16" o.c. with 3/4" plywood decking and 1/2" drywall on the underside. My floor joist sits on the full 8" of the block wall below and sits on top of the full 8" of the 16" concrete lintel on the outside which leaves a clear span of 6' - 4" for the 2 x 12 floor joist @ 16" o.c.
According to the manufacture specification, the hot tub when filled with water weights 125 lbs per s/f dead load, this does not include the live load. The hot tub Model is called Softub Legend 220....This 125 lbs per s/f does not include up to people 4 people. I will have a total of 2 adults and 1 child. Can someone help me verify if the floor joist can handle the load of the hot tub.
