How much will a deck hold

Postby tailbak » Wed Nov 19, 2008 6:25 am

I am wanting to put a Hot Tub on an existing deck. The Hot Tub when full of water will weigh ~ 4000 lbs. The deck is 14 ft. x 12 ft. It has 2 x6 joist with 24 inch centers. Anyone know what the conversion is is to lbs per square ft?
