I have a deck that is 20'X 22'. The floor joists are 2"x8" 16" OC. The rim joists are 2"x10". The span of the floor joists are anywhere from 8' to 10' and are connected to a 2"x12" ledger board and a 2"x12" cross beam (thus the 8' to 10' span on the floor joists). Will this hold the load of a hot tub that is approximately 4,100 lbs. filled? (What about adding people to the tub?) How much more weight could be added in the tub if the deck will support it as is. The tub is approximately 7'x7'.
