paver patio

I was wondering if anyone knows if a correctly done paver patio will be able to hold the weight of a large hot tub over time? Hot tub will be around 4,000 lbs when full...any thoughts?

It all depends on the installation and base under the pavers. There are many airport taxiways for 747s that use pavers on a compacted base.

It definitely will! That's what I've got under our hot tub and have had absolutely no problems. I put down a 6 inch gravel base compacted it with a plate compactor, then added 2 inches of sand and compacted again for a base. It's been there for 10 years with absolutely no movement.
