    Hot tub installation requirements?


    Hi guys, I’m looking at buying a hot tub for the back garden for summer but what is involved with this job? Will I need an outdoor socket installed? Do I need a platform to put it on or can it go straight onto the patio?

    "Depends on the quality of product have you got a hard surface to put it on that’s levelish patio decking etc ? Outside plug would be good outside tap to fill or it’s buckets !!"

    "Hi, there are so many variables, some tubs can be electrically heated, some heated by log burners, some buy solar. Your choice, electric is most conveinent. IP rated Socket nearest the tub is safest. The type of tube will vary depending on budget an needs, the easiest being the inflables that need a very level solid surface. Then thers the fibreglass formed that could be sunken or ground level and finaly a bespoke one made from scratch. Too much for me to mention, get some idears, garden location, type of heating, sunk into ground or surface, think of winter use ie cover, the rest will fall into place.(none intentional pun).
