PREPARATION & PLANNING

The start of your hot tub journey can be quite a confusing process. We have simplified this by breaking down the three main aspects that you will need to consider in preparation for your new hot tub.

Whilst there are many questions that you may have the key consideration at first is as simple as A – (access) B – (base) C – (cable).

PREPARATION & PLANING

The start of your hot tub journey can be quite a confusing process. We have simplified this by breaking down the three main aspects that you will need to consider in preparation for your new hot tub.

Whilst there are many questions that you may have the key consideration at first is as simple as A – (access) B – (base) C – (cable).

PREPARATION & PLANNING

Access

Hot tubs are large bulky items and come pre-assembled. The first thought should be with getting a hot tub to where you are planning for it to be located. Not all our hot tub models are the same size so you may want to look at step two – choosing your perfect model, to double check the dimensions whilst reviewing access.

Typically, hot tubs are positioned and used in the garden. Delivery and installation are included within the purchase price of our hot tubs; however, consideration needs to be given to the available access for us to achieve this.

Base

Hot tubs require a suitable foundation (base). They are not suited for positioning on grass or soft surfaces. A suitable base will need to be in place prior to the installation of your hot tub. There are general considerations that need to be given for a hot tub base. It is important that it is a flat level surface strong enough to support the weight of the hot tub.

Patio – As long as your patio is flat and level and is well constructed then these make great bases for a hot tub.

Cable

For your hot tub to operate an electrical supply will need to be provided before installation. Plug and play hot tubs will require an external 13 amp plug socket and this should be R.C.D protected. For more powerful models a larger supply will be required.

The most common electrical feed for a non-plug and play hot tub is 32 amp. Each of our models will show the required amperage rating in the specification.

It is important to think about the whole planned route when reviewing the access for a hot tub. You should check any pinch points and tight turns as well as and window ledges or protruding items such as doorsteps, guttering, gas meter boxes, etc.

It is advisable to measure the proposed rout at several places as often what may be wide enough at one end of an entryway may be narrower at another point.

Hot Tubs are delivered on their side using either a dedicated Spa Kart or Hot Tub Sled. This means that the height of the hot tub becomes the width for delivery.

Decking – Decking is very common in gardens nowadays, either timber or composite decking is adequate if the weight-bearing of the hot tub is directed to the ground. Often decks being built for hot tub bases will be over-engineered in the section where the hot tub will be placed.

Concrete base – Concrete bases are a very common choice for hot tub installations, the recommendation is to create a concrete base that is at least 50mm thick. Bases can be created above or at ground level and need to be flat and level.

Smart Deck by Leisure Concepts – The smart deck is a handy solution to providing a suitable foundation for your hot tub. The smart deck can be installed on grass or most other surfaces to provide a weight-bearing surface for your hot tub. Some preparation will need to be made to the ground that the smart deck is to be placed on. In general, the area must be prepared to be flat and level. Then simply click the smart deck together and place on the prepared area. The smart deck is available to order from our website and can be delivered to you prior to installation of your hot tub so that you can prepare.

Other considerations regarding the base.

Cover lifter option – If you have opted to fit a cover lifter to your hot tub then you will need to allow at least 460mm of space behind the hot tub for the cover lifter to operate. Give thought to the location of the base if you are creating one and are having a cover lifter fitted.

Allowance for steps – Each of our hot tubs is supplied with a set of access steps. These will also need to be positioned on a flat level surface in front of the hot tub. If creating a base, ensure to allow for the extra size of the base over and above that of the dimensions of the hot tub for the steps.

The installation of electrical supplies is heavily regulated within the UK. Installation of the electrical supply must be undertaken by a certified electrician. Installation certificates must be provided prior to the connection of the hot tub to the electrical supply. Always ensure that all electrical installations are in accordance with local regulations.

HOT TUB & ACCESSORIES

There are many factors to consider when choosing the configuration of the hot tub that is right for you and your family. These can range from the hydrotherapy power, the type of electrics that are required, available space and access for delivery.

One of the most important factors to consider would be to how many people will be using the hot tub.

HOT TUB & ACCESSORIES

Configuration

Apart from the obvious differences of specification, power size and price the main thing to consider is the internal seating configuration.

Single Lounger and five seats – this is by far the most popular choice for hot tub configuration. It gives the best of all options as there is the ever-popular lounger seat as well as bench seating with five positions. In most cases, this type of configuration hosts one or two captains’ chairs in the corners opposite the lounger. The term captain chair is generally used in the industry as a larger corner seat that has a cluster of hydrotherapy jets that give a fantastic massage.

Accessories

We are proud to be able to say that when you purchase a hot tub from UK Hot Tubs that we strongly believe that all the necessary extras should be included, and they are. Included in your purchase as standard are:

  • Your choice of a hot tub in your chosen colour
  • Thermal cover with locking security straps
  • Easy access composite steps
  • Chemical starter kit
  • Standard delivery and installation
  • Hand over and training on the hot tub and chemical usage

Upgrades

Although our hot tubs are specified at a very high specification as standard, additional features are available to enhance your hot tub experience. As we have carefully chosen the industry-leading Gecko Alliance controls for our hot tub, we are able to offer the following upgrades for your hot tub.

Read More

Two Lounger and 3 seats – Often called a twin lounger within the industry this configuration is very popular with couples and families alike. The addition of a second lounger does take away some internal space for additional seating and in most cases, this configuration on a standard square hot tub would result in a five position hot tub. Twin loungers’ hot tubs are a great choice if two of you are eying up the hot tub lounger as your seat of choice.

All Seater – As the name suggests all seater hot tubs do not feature a lounger. As there is no lounger the typical standard square all-seater hot tub will have seven seats. A great choice if you have a lot of hot tub users in the household, or if you use your hot tub for socialising and parties. The nature of an all-seater hot tub means that internally the feel is of more space.

A hot tub cover lifter is our most highly recommended accessory. There are a host of accessories available from our website shop, however by far the most
popular accessories customers purchase is the cover lifter bracket.

This cover lifter will make accessing the hot tub very easy and has the added advantage of protecting your hot tub cover from damage. If you order a cover lifter with your hot tub, the delivery team will install this for you on the day of delivery.

Gecko IN. TOUCH 2 – From Gecko Alliance, the maker of the most advanced electronic controls, spa systems, and accessories for the spa industry comes in.touch2. Control your hot tub from your tablet or smartphone. The in.touch2 system creates a link between your hot tub and internet router. By downloading the free intouch2 application you can easily control and review your hot tub from home and away. Available to purchase with your hot tub
and installed on delivery.

Gecko IN. CLEAR – From Gecko Alliance, the maker of the most advanced electronic controls, spa systems and accessories for the spa industry comes in.clear, the most efficient, reliable and safest bromine-based water sanitization system ever offered to spa owners. In.clear keeps water so clear, you’ll want to touch it, you’ll need to feel it! In.clear generates and releases bromine into the water to eliminate microbiological contaminants such as waterborne bacteria, algae, and organic matter given off by spa bathers for a relaxing and enjoyable bathing experience every time the spa is used. It allows the programming of personal settings and adjustment of bromine levels right from your spas main keypad, on Gecko driven spa models, or on its dedicated keypad when installed as a standalone unit. Once set, in.clear will consistently generate bromine based on your selection. You’ll get clear, clean and soft water every time you use your spa and you will never need to add any other harsh chemicals to the water of your spa.

Even if your schedule keeps you away for weeks, you are sure to enjoy a clear, clean and soft spa water experience when you return. Available to purchase with your hot tub and installed on delivery.

Power

Plug and play hot tubs are becoming very popular and are a great option for many people. A plug and play hot tub will not, by its nature, be as powerful as a 25 or 32 amp hot tub for example.

We have created our plug and play hot tubs with clever variable boost massage controls that allow the full power of the pump to be directed to certain seats/loungers all at once. If you are looking for your hot tub to have the extra power, then a higher specification 25 or 32 amp model is more suited.

Size

When you first start looking at hot tubs, they may look quite large and overbearing. The standard size of the hot tub to suit and comfortably fit the average family, and a little entertaining here and there is 2.0 – 2.1m square. If space is of a premium, then we do offer smaller models that can help overcome this.

To visualise this space allocation in your garden, you can utilise any patio tables and chairs to place in the area you want your hot tub. Spreading them out to the approximate size will give you a rough understanding of the volume of space that will be taken up by the hot tub.

A popular choice is our zero percent no deposit finance. The application process is quick and easy.

Finance your hot tub the way that works best for you. We offer 0% finance over 1 – 5 years with no deposit. Should you wish, you can make a deposit contribution towards your hot tub finance to bring the monthly payment down to an even lower figure.

Delivery

The team will arrive on the agreed delivery day and unload the hot tub from the delivery truck. The hot tub will be wheeled in using the industry standard SpaKart or SpaSled. At this point, the hot tub will be on its side to provide the narrowest option for access. In most cases, the first thing the delivery team will do is to start collecting water from your garden hose in a large water reservoir bag. This is to save time and to ensure that your hot tub is running and heating as quickly as possible. The team will take the hot tub to its final position and lay it down on to the base. You can review the position and orientation and let the team know when it’s where you would like it.

Next, the team will connect the electrics and fit the accessories such as the cover lifter if ordered. The cover will be fitted, and the security straps fixed to the hot tub. As soon as the hot tub has been wired and fitted, the team will use a submersible pump to pump the water from the reservoir bag into the hot tub.

When your hot tub is full, a team member will take you through the usage of the chemical starter kit that will be included and give you tips and advice on maintenance and managing your hot tub. As proud members of BISHTA, we must now shock dose your hot tub before handing it over to you. This is a requirement of all BISHTA members as your hot tub would have been water tested in the factory and we must ensure to use a shock dose to hand over your hot tub with a level of sanitizer administered.

A full demonstration of the hot tub controls will be given and the hand over paperwork completed. All packaging and shipping materials will be removed from the site by the delivery team on departure.

Now your hot tub will be heating to the set temperature and this usually, on average takes an approximate 8 – 10 hours. It is best practice to wait for the temperature to reach the set point and the shock dose administered to reduce before using your hot tub for the first time.
