Preparing for your Energy Efficient Hot Tub
Before your hot tub arrives there is some information you need to know.
Firstly, it is important to know its dimensions so that it will fit where you want to put it and also that there is adequate access to get it to its final site. Hot tubs are heavy and don’t bend around corners so if you have any doubt a few photographs of the site and the access can be very helpful for us to give you the right guidance and advice. If there is still a doubt about your access or the site then one of our team can carry out a pre-delivery site inspection.
Secondly, having an adequate base for it to sit on is very important. We recommend a solid level base and can normally be made from concrete, paving or a well-supported deck. The size of the base required can vary depending on the hot tub and the cover lifter you have ordered so speak to us for advice for information that is relevant to your model.
Finally, it is important to have the correct power supply for your hot tub nearby. We recommend to have a ‘commando’ type socket installed. The majority of our energy efficient hot tubs only require a 16 amp commando socket with only a few of our larger models with extra features requiring a 20 amp supply. This needs to be installed by a qualified electrician again ask one of our team for the specific requirements for the tub you have ordered.
A water connection is not required to any of our hot tubs however a cold water tap with a hose nearby for doing water changes or topping up is worth considering.
Aquasun provide spa specification and drawings with measurements to help you decide how to best integrate your hot tub or spa into your chosen environment. We are on hand to offer support and advice for every aspect of the delivery so you can be confident that your hot tub will be installed without any concerns and operate safely for many years on a proper base with the correct power supply.
Reducing Costs with an Energy Efficient Hot Tub
Overall, your monthly operating costs are lowered by our hot tubs’ full foaming; the same type used in commercial freezers, FiberCor® insulation properties in certain models, the manufacture of tight-fitting spa covers, presence of powerful pumps and jets which activate only when needed, and LED lighting which uses less energy than a standard light bulb in all components. With fears allayed regarding the continuous cost of running a hot tub, and all instructions on dimensions and installation guidelines easily accessible, you should be fully prepared for your hot tub or spa.
