Before proceeding with the installation and assembly of the hot tub, you must ensure that you have received your product with the packaging in perfect condition. If the packaging is damaged, notify your dealer immediately.
The hot tub must be handled very carefully and cautiously by several people at once. Never hold the hot tub by its pipes.
The hot tub should be installed according to the following criteria:
If you choose to place the hot tub outdoors, note the following points:
Do not leave the hot tub exposed to the sun without water and without a protective cover. Prolonged exposure to the sun may damage the surface of your hot tub and its accessories. Acrylic quickly absorbs heat from the sun’s rays, and it may reach very high temperatures that would damage it. The maximum temperature that it can withstand is 60ºC.
If possible, the hot tub should be placed away from areas with trees, to prevent any falling leaves from clogging the filter and water loops.
When placing the hot tub in glazed areas, avoid direct sunlight on the hot tub through the windows, as this may excessively increase the temperature.
When leaving the hot tub outdoors at temperatures close to 0ºC, there are 2 options:
It is advisable to provide some drainage in the vicinity of the hot tub, to prevent water from accumulating around it and avoid slippery areas where it is entered by bathers.
Remember that operating the hot tub increases the humidity in the room in which it is located. Therefore, it is advisable to have a ventilation system to prevent any build-up of humidity that may damage nearby elements.
Using the cover reduces heat loss and the humidity in the area.
The hot tub’s frame should never be fixed to the ground. The hot tub contracts and expands due to temperature changes. Fixing the hot tub to the ground may cause irreparable damage and cracks in the acrylic shell. It should simply be put in place and settle under its own weight in the desired location. Do not lift or handle the hot tub by its upper edge.
When the hot tub is properly seated in position, finish the works, bearing in mind that you must leave a clearance of at least 400 mm around the shell for possible maintenance. Never place any items there that could touch the hot tub’s shell, pipes or accessories. Leave an access hatch or way to access the area around the hot tub for maintenance work. This area should be at least 700 mm.
You can finish the work with tiles or similar, ensuring that the area around the hot tub’s shell never comes into direct contact with anything that you install (you should leave at least 1 centimetre all around it).
To seal the hot tub’s rim, use a special elastic sealant for water installations.
Never fill the hot tub’s upper profile with cement or any other material that expands/contracts differently to the shell. This would lead to the hot tub cracking. Never concrete over the hot tub’s pipes or accessories.
