Hot Tub Questions
Our hot tubs vary from budget to luxury hot tubs so give yourself an idea of where you would like to be on this.
Consider who will use it, how often it will be used and of course how big your garden is. UK gardens vary so much that we’ve made sure our range covers space saving round hot tub or all out super-size!
We have a choice of many different acrylic colours from blue to white to grey or for something different, we have mayan copper. You can customise your hot tub to suit your garden with a choice of 2-3 cabinet colours too.
Round, square, rectangle? If you have seen one you like the look of or have a specific area for your hot tub in your garden, it’s worth making a note.
Whichever hot tub you choose, it will need to get to the back of your property. There are lots of ways in which to check this and we will help you to ensure you buy the right hot tub.

What is a captains chair? It is a dedicated seat normally the largest single seat with dedicated jets that cover most of the upper body. In some cases this also includes jets to the lower body and legs. The higher the spec of your hot tub, the better the captains chair.
All our hot tubs have dedicated circulation pumps. Why is this better? A dedicated circulation pump on our hot tubs runs at a very low ampage. Ours is 0.25 amps. This means even running 24hrs a day and is a lot cheaper than a spa using the low speed jet pump. Which is normally 1-1.5 amps up to 6x the ampage.
Most cheap hot tubs will have one directional jets and will only use up to 3 inch jets. We use up to 5 inch jets and a mixture of multi directional and hydro jets. Hydro jets spin, giving you a sensation of massage. Using only single directional jets can leave areas of the skin feeling sore and other areas not touched in terms of massage.
All of our hot tub covers are twice as thick as most other standard covers. They are insulated to keep the heat in your hot tub as well as keeping garden debris out.

Lucite is well known within the spa industry. It is renowned for quality and durability. Other acrylic used is chines acrylic which is half the price to manufacture but is known to fail.
Chines acrylic actually looks thicker, but it needs to be as it is not as strong. Lower quality acrylic can face from chemicals used in your hot tub.
It can blister and crack due to weakness. Most will claim hot tubs are manufactured using Lucite acrylic, but until you get it and have used your hot tub for a while, you will probably not know.

The hot tub ozonator is an ozone generator that injects dissolved ozone into the spa water where it is one of the most powerful oxidizing disinfectants on earth, yet virtually undetectable by human touch.
The natural from of oxygen combines with organic matter of all kinds to kill or neutralize it. Ozone is 200 times more powerful that chlorine and up to 99.99% effective against bacterian and viruses that can lurk in a hot tub. As an added benefit, the only byproduct of ozone is ordinary oxygen – no chemical residues.
In general, hot tub seats are upright sitting areas within your hot tub
A single pump provides a good strength of water jet for relaxation and in some cases the power of one pump can be switched to a specific area of your hot tub for more powerful jets.
