What happens when you have a hot tub installed?

Of course, every company is different and has a different level of service, but when it comes to installing a hot tub in your home, there are usually similar things that are part of the process. If you have taken the plunge and you have bought yourself a hot tub, then here is what you can expect when the time comes to have in installed.

Install your hot tub and connect your electrics

Whilst it is often down to you to make sure that you have the right electrics ready and waiting for your hot tub to be installed, your hot tub supplier will bring your hot tub to you and then connect it to the electrics that are ready and waiting.

Fill up your hot tub and explain the use of the chemicals

Once it is in place, then the time has come to make sure that your hot tub is filled up with water, after all, what is a hot tub without water? It can take as much as 2 hours to fill a hot tub up, so be prepared to wait a little while. During the time that the hot tub is filling up, the installation technician will run through the chemicals that you need to add to the water. Explaining not only what they are, but how much to add and when you need to make sure that you use them too.

Look at how you use your control panel functions

Depending on the model of hot tub that you choose for your home, you are going to need to know how to use all the control panel functions. Having this knowledge will help you to understand how to turn up (or down the heat) turn on the lights or perhaps work out when something is wrong with your hot tub.

Perform final checks

Before leaving you alone with your hot tub, the installation technician is going to want to perform some final checks and make sure that everything is working. This includes demonstrating all the functions of the spa, such as your lights, jets, features and pumps too.

The entire installation process can take as long as 3 hours to complete. However, it is important to ensure that you understand everything that your hot tub can do and that it is always working properly too. After all, as soon as the water is up to temperature, you are going to want to jump in and enjoy it.
