Leave access to at least the entire front of the spa (the removable panels provide access to the spa's equipment) for periodic spa care and maintenance. Outdoor and Patio Installation No matter where you install your new spa, it's important that you have a solid foundation to support it. If you install the spa outdoors, a reinforced concrete pad at least four inches thick is recommended for your Hot Tub. If you place the spa on the ground, even temporarily, place stepping stones under the levelling areas. The stones should be at least two inches thick and twelve inches square.Even with stones in place, the spa will inevitably settle and become unlevel. Plus, a spa surrounded by dirt or grass will soon be filled with dirt or grass from user's feet; therefore, it is important to get it onto a solid foundation as soon as possible. Luso Spas will not fully install a Spa on a substandard temporary surface.
To be certain your deck can support your spa, you must know the deck's maximum load capacity. Consult a qualified building contractor or structural engineer before you place the spa on an elevated deck or indoors. This weight per square foot must not exceed the structure's rated capacity, or serious structural damage could result.If you intend install a tub and surround it with decking, please bear in mind that you will need to install access panels to allow access to the sides of the tub for maintenance and any remedial repairs that may be required in years to come. These access panels should be large enough to allow an engineer access to the side panels of the tub and should allow enough room for the engineer to remove the screws in the side panel. This is also the requirement for tubs that are sunken into a pit or are indoors. BUILD YOUR BASE, PUT YOUR TUB ON THE BASE, THEN BUILD DECKING AROUND IT AS LOWERING A TUB INTO A HOLE THAT IS ONLY JUST BIG ENOUGH FOR THE TUB TO GO INTO IS VERY DIFFICULT, REQUIRES AT LEAST 8 PEOPLE OR A CRANE AND COULD DAMAGE YOUR NEW DECKING. IF YOU HAVE ANY ACCESS QUERIES GET IN TOUCH.
First, obtain the dimensions of the hot tub you have ordered from us. You will need to consider the Spa will be delivered on its side on a special hot tub trolley system. The minimum width of a pathway that is needed is 1.1Metres to enable us to deliver a tub on its side without damage to either the property or to the tub.
Height can also be an issue, 350mm must be added to the longest dimension. If your hot tub is 2,100mm x 2,100mm, when it is on its side on the trolley it may stand 2,450mm high. Any obstructions will have to be removed to allow access Also, you must consider that the trolley is not flexible and will need a wide turning area to negotiate any corners. Steps can also be an issue as hot tubs are heavy bulky items that can be very difficult to transport up steps. Extra assistance by several fit, able bodied people will be needed in the event of needing to get a hot tub up several steps.
Be aware of some special requirements if you place your spa indoors. Water will accumulate around the spa, so flooring materials must provide a good grip when wet.
Proper drainage is essential to prevent a build-up of water around the spa. When building a new room for the spa, it is recommended that a floor drain be installed. The humidity will naturally increase with the spa installed. Water may get into woodwork and produce dry-rot, mildew, or other problems.Check for airborne moisture's effects on exposed wood, paper, etc. To minimise these effects, it is best to provide plenty of ventilation to the spa area. An architect can help to determine if more ventilation must be installed. Electrical Information Any electrical supply for a hot tub outdoors should be installed by a competent, certified electrician. All works must be certificated to part P of the building regs.
Electrical installation work should always conform to BS:7671 17th edition of the wiring regulations Electrical requirements. Most, if not all domestic Hot Tubs are designed for single phase 230v ac operation We will tell you the total load the Hot Tub will draw at full operation. Your certified electrician will then be able to work out what size of cabling is required. Even the smallest Hot Tub would usually require at least a 16-amp supply. Bigger Hot Tubs with 3 pumps or more generally require a 32-amp supply but this is a guide only.
ALL outside electrical supplies must have mechanical protection, this is either in the form of steel wire armoured cable (SWA) or suitable conduit. The Hot Tub MUST have its own dedicated circuit with correct size fuse breaker and RCD protection. See tub specifics for further details. A rotary isolator switch not closer to the Hot Tub than 2 metres is required so that the Hot Tub can be isolated from the main supply quickly and efficiently We generally ask for a coil of cable to be left immediately next to the Hot Tub base so that we have enough to wire it in whichever final position the customer chooses. Luso Spas specific requirements for circuit breakers.Almost all Luso Spas hot tubs require a 32 Amp RCD protected circuit breaker fitted to your consumer unit. From the consumer unit you should have suitable armoured cable or cable protected by a suitable conduit to a suitable waterproof outdoor isolator switch 2 or 3 metres from the tub.
Please consult your electrician for cable thicknesses. From the isolator switch there needs to be enough cable left to reach the furthest away corner of hot tub so that our engineer can connect the tub to the electrical supply. If you are siting one of the 13Amp tubs outside then you will require an ip65 waterproof socket and you will still need to supply either armoured cable or a protective metal conduit for the cable to be protected from garden tools, animals etc.This item is brand new, not reconditioned and images shown above are of the actual item. Examples include, but are not limited to; Damage of surface due to leaving the spa uncovered or due to covering the spa with something other than lusospas Hot Tubs authorized cover, Damage to the surface due to contact with unapproved cleaners or solvents, Damages caused by operation of water temperature outside of the approved 34F 104F levels, Damage caused by unapproved sanitizers such as calcium hypochlorite, sodium hypochlorite, tri-chlortype chlorine or sanitizing chemical that remain undisclosed on the spa surface, Damage due to dirty, clogged or calcified filter cartridge, Damage caused by failure to provide an even, sufficient support of spa, low water level. PLEASE NOTE THAT LOW WATER LEVEL OR BLOCKED FILTERS ARE THE TWO MAIN CAUSES OF ISSUES WITH HOT TUBS. EITHER OF THESE CAN CAUSE THE SYSTEM TO RUN DRY AND RISK BURNING OUT THE HEATER.
We advise that the fitting of any spare part, electrical or plumbing specific, be done by a trained engineer. We cannot accept any liability regarding the installation of spare parts.
