Preparing for the delivery of a hot tub

  • The site you select for your spa must be a flat surface that contacts the bottom of your spa completely.
  • Spas weigh between 900kg and 1,400kg when full, therefore a solid support is essential. A 10-15cm thick reinforced concrete slab is ideal, but not a requirement. In most cases your spa can be placed on a properly fitted existing patio. Your spa can be mounted on a deck, but it must be of solid construction. Either way, it is recommended you install your spa at ground level to allow easy internal access.
  • The base needs to be at least the same size as the footprint of your spa.
  • The power supplied must be a dedicated RCD protected circuit. You will need to get a qualified electrician to undertake this work (check spa for Amp requirement).
  • Plug and play models plug directly into a 13Amp socket.
