Reinforcing deck to hold hot tub


The hot tub in question is around 9’ by 7.5’ and has a dry weight of around 1,200 pounds. It hold 505 gallons of water, which weighs around 4,200 pounds. That being the weight to around 5,400 points without anyone sitting in it. Add maybe another 1,000 lbs for people (it sits 9). Total weight around 6,400 lbs.

What I was planning on doing was using 2×12 beams, 3 in total, attached to 6×6 posts, set in concrete, with double 2×8 joists, 12” on center.

Would this be sufficient to holt that type of weight?
