What is the criteria for having a hot tub Pompey ? I know the health benefits etc , but I’m on about the foundations , electric and plumbing , filtration , chemicals , changing the water , .... all the important bits ! . ?????
Foundations wise, I have set out a section on our sandstone patio, placed/fitted a 12mm thick base mat, waterproof, which apparently helps retain the heat.
Electricity, well I have drilled a hole for the lead through my conservatory wall, so plugged in in the dry, obviously.
Plumbing, as most hot tubs have a built in/on motor/pump you just have to use a garden hose to fill up, we have been told from various sources to drain at least 1 or 2 times a year.
Have bought an additional filter for when the change is required.
Chemicals, we were told again by friends to buy a Hot Tub starter kit, Chlorine tabs, water cleaner etc.
The missus hairdresser arrived the morning, fully kitted out, and her hair was cut in the garden in the rain lol! is that a first, any way I digress we were told they leave their Tub on 24/7/365, apparently very cheap to run.
The Tub itself, other than all the instruction, has a built in zip cover, for when not in use and the safety for all nosey critturs, I have also purchased another cover which covers the whole/100% of the Tub.
As I said earlier I am still learning, but generally it seems to be a piece of piss!
I hope I have answered all your queries, and maybe you might think about having one yourself.
