Hot tub sales have understandably gone through the roof since lockdown was first announced and it makes sense, with people spending more time at home, and holidays abroad looking increasingly difficult thanks to changing rules, isolation requirements and increasing costs.
Most customers will seek the help of a third party to install the hot tub and while for the most part installation for the majority of models should be quite straightforward, there are some common mistakes to avoid. For example, many customers will request a hot tub to be installed on their decking, but with water overflow likely at times, it should be checked that the decking material is suitable for this, and also that it can withstand the weight of the tub. Other common mishaps can occur with telephone and electricity wires, so it’s worth taking the time to visit the site first.
We’d also share other practical tips such as ensuring the suitability of the ground, leaving enough space around the hot tub for easy access and maintenance, as well as checking for nearby drainage options.
