3.2. Hot tub location and installation

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:

  • You should not place any items that are not fully moisture- and water-resistant either beneath or around the hot tub (within a one-meter perimeter). The hot tub’s warranty does not cover any damage to ornamental or decorative materials or items that may have been caused by flooding or air humidity.
  • The base on which the hot tub is installed must be large enough to bear the weight of the hot tub, its water, and the maximum number of users. Otherwise, the warranty will not cover any damage that may occur. See the current building regulations.
  • Place the hot tub in a horizontal position, resting the whole lower base on an even, flat surface that can bear its weight when in use (full of water, plus the weight of the bathers). Do not install it on a curved surface or on top of blocks that concentrate the weight at specific points.
  • A suitably sized drain must be provided to allow the full volume of water to drain away.
  • Prior to installation, if you believe that there is any reason why you may have to remove the hot tub from its initial location, you should take this into account to avoid any future damage to the building or pipework if it is dismantled. The warranty does not cover repairs of such damage.
  • The sides where the motors and thermostatic valve are located must always be fully accessible to allow maintenance work to be performed. The location of the hot tub must allow it to be moved so that all sides can be easily accessed.


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:

  • For frequent use, leave the water in the hot tub, insulating the water supply pipes to prevent them from freezing. The hot tub has a mode that prevents the water from freezing inside it by recirculating it through the heat exchanger when the water’s temperature falls below 7ºC (see section 5.7. Smart winter mode).
  • If it is not going to be used, the hot tub should be fully drained and the water supply’s threaded fittings should be removed, ensuring that there is no water left inside the hot tub or in the pipes. (See section 6.3. Maintenance in periods of non-use and absence).


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.


To ensure the longevity of your spa furniture, it is important to follow these instructions focusing on the ventilation of the furniture:

  1. Our spa furniture requires ventilation
  2. Lack of ventilation can lead to warping of the spa panels.

Be sure to provide adequate ventilation for your furniture to prevent possible warping.

  • A spa partially or completely covered by any type of decking type construction.
  • A spa that is buried or semi-buried in the ground.
  • Material in contact with the base of the spa (stones, wood, artificial turf…) that is placed directly on the ground and in contact with the base of the spa, hindering the necessary ventilation.
