What is the difference between a hot tub, a spa and a jacuzzi?
Nowadays the three terms mean roughly the same thing. Jacuzzi was the name of the inventor of the jet system used in tubs, where the water jet is mixed with air by using a Venturi method This really just means that air is sucked into the jet of water, and mixed with the water to give it that bubbly lively look. For the hot tub customer the choice is immense with manufacturers springing up all over the world and numerous options on-line. However we believe that the American made hot tubs have a tried and tested track record and we would always urge buyers to be wary of products produced in other parts of the world that may not have the same stringent manufacturing policies.
Tubs & Spas require a solid base, either concrete / patio / see our accessory range for pads.
Hot tubs that require a 13 amp plug need no special electrical installation. A safety RCD cut-out (available from any DIY store) should be used.
Tubs that require more than 13 amps should be electrically connected by a qualified electrician.
Tubs need to be switched on at all times to maintain the temperature and water sanitation. They will turn off automatically when the pre-defined temperature is reached.
Chlorine or Bromine or similar sanitation needs to be added to the water at all times, and maintained at the correct levels according to chemical instructions.
Delivery and installation costs £295 but comes with a chemical starter kit and a thorough tutorial of your spa and water management.
