Frequent Asked Questions
Here are the commonly asked questions and their answers.
How often do I have to empty the water?
Every 3 to 4 months dependent on usage
Does the tub need to be plumbed in?
No. Just filled with a garden hose. The only connection required is electric
Will it work on a standard household 13amp socket?
Some spas do and some require a dedicated supply running out from your main consumer unit ( fusebox )
So please check on each spa of its electric requirements. We will talk you through this anyway
Do I need to add chemicals
You will need some form of sanitizer to keep the water clean and fresh. Most use Chlorine or Bromine but there are now some Chemical Free products that are softer on the skin such as Aquasafe 90.
Does it need a solid base
Yes, either concrete, patio or well built deck ( must be level )
Do they go up on their side for delivery
Is the temperature variable
Yes, by the top side control. No more than 40degrees C. 35-38 is preferable. 40 is very hot and you will come out looking rather red.
How often do you turn it on
You leave it plugged in continuously. The thermostat will regulate the temp and only turn it on when needed. When you want to get in the Jets button will turn the jets on and override the thermostat.
Can it overheat
No, there is a temp override feature.
Does it have a lid
Yes, Solid, thermal with side straps. Folds in the middle to allow easy removal. There are cover removing devices to aide cover removals starting from £99.00 inc vat.
Can you turn the jets off individually
Yes, just twist, but don’t turn them all off as you will cause a blockage which will damage the system.
Can they be used through the winter
Yes, in fact many customers use their spas more in the winter
Can they be used indoors
How long will they take to heat up
Approx 7 to 10 hours but once hot they maintain the temp themselves
