Depending on the Jacuzzi® you have purchased, we normally need between 100-120cm of clear & unobstructed width and between 220 - 235cm in height along the entire route.
Jacuzzi’s arrive on their side. A minimum of two installers will be there on the day to deliver and position your Jacuzzi.
After the ideal location has been found we will advise you on the solid flat base, setting up the electrics and making sure that you have a water supply nearby. We keep in touch throughout your installation to help keep work on track and answer any questions that may have arisen during this part of the preparation.

Preparing for delivery and installation is imperative to ensure your hot tub can be delivered and installed on the agreed date. Preparation for your hot tub includes creating a foundation for your hot tub, ensuring the hot tub can be connected to the electrical supply and can be filled with water. For the exact dimensions required for your hot tub base, please contact your sales expert and they will advise what you require.
A hot tub must be placed on a solid level surface, which is capable of supporting the weight of the hot tub, the water in it and those who use it. We don’t recommend placing your hot tub on grass or bare ground and suggest looking for a qualified contractor to help you create a suitable foundation for your hot tub.
A poured slab of concrete or concrete patio offers the most popular and low maintenance solution. One thing to consider is that concrete doesn’t offer the best drainage solution. We advise the following steps as a minimum concrete base for your hot tub:
Paving stones are a cost-effective solution for your hot tub base and with a huge variety of sizes, shapes and finishes available it’s easy to create a base that suits your taste and garden. We advise the following steps as a minimum paving stone/slab base:
Decking is a popular choice as a base for a hot tub and can be tailored to suit your garden. However, it is of utmost importance to consult with a qualified professional to ensure that your decking can support the weight of your hot tub so we therefore advise for decking to be built with reinforcement. We advise the following as a minimum decking base for your hot tub:
In the event that a site survey highlights the need for lifting equipment to complete the hot tub delivery, this service needs to be arranged in advance.
Please note that this is not included in our Jacuzzi® installation pack price. However, this is something that we can help you to organise, if you require any assistance please speak to one of our Sales team for more info.
For a 32AMP hot tub, 6mm² 3-core SWA cable is needed and a 10mm² 3-core SWA cable is perfectly suitable for a 40AMP Hot Tub.
An IP65 45AMP Rotary Isolator Switch is also recommended so that the hot tub can be isolated outdoors in an emergency or for service work. This is simply a rotary on/off switch but should be sited more than 2 metres away from the hot tub so that bathers cannot be in the hot tub whilst touching the switch.
The electrician should fit a suitable weather proof block connector to the end of the tail from the isolator, the hot tub supply can then be directly hard wired into the weatherproof block connector inside the hot tub. Waterproof gland packs should be used to prevent ingress of water on all electrical connections (2 at the isolation switch). Ensure that all earth cables are clearly colour coded with green/yellow insulating tape or earth sleeve.
The electrical installation must comply with BS:7671 – “Requirements for electrical Installations IET Wiring Regulations”, particularly concerning the following specifications:
The hot tub must be hard wired on its own fused spur back to your household consumer unit, not sharing a supply with any other appliances
The hot tub should be protected by a sufficiently rated MCB (mains circuit breaker) and should cover the maximum amperage pull of the Spa plus 25% to allow for brake torque (i.e. the extra rush of current when pumps are first started). Therefore, a hot tub that has a maximum current draw of 20 amps should be fitted with a 25AMP MCB.
The hot tub should be protected against earth faults by an RCD (Residual Current Device). This is a trip switch which prevents the possibility of an electric shock from damaged or waterlogged cables and connections. A suitable rated 30mA RCD is recommended.
Outdoor cabling should be protected from damage by either laying protective ducting (pc pipe) below ground or by using Steel Wired Armoured (SWA) cable. Your electrician will calculate the size of cable required depending on the loading and the distance from the mains supply.
Once the hot tub is filled with water and the electrical supply is installed our installation team will commission the hot tub and check that everything is fully operational before handing over to you with a complete chemical training guide and hot tub features.
If you are in any doubt about the required electrical guidelines you should seek professional advice from a fully qualified electrician.
Please note: It is advised that your electrician leaves enough spare cable attached to the isolator to go the furthest side of the hot tub, usually a minimum of around 7m to 8m is recommended. If your isolator is located further away, then please use a longer length of cable.Our technicians are qualified to connect this cable to the inside of the Hot Tub.
A hot tub requires a significant volume of water to fill, as such a mains water supply and a hosepipe long enough to reach your hot tub from the supply is a necessity to ensure your installation is quick and easy.
Your hot tub install is organised around your availability. Our team will call you 48 hours before the agreed delivery date, with a reminder of the delivery slot & the access they’ll need, then it’s time to bring your hot tub.
Delivered with care and wrapped in secure protective packaging, this is the beginning of our half-day installation. Our team then gently manoeuvres the hot tub into position and connects up the electrics. All that’s left to do then is fill with water and take you through the running instructions.

In short, Jacuzzi’s are simple to maintain. You certainly don’t need a chemistry degree. There are two main elements to look after and that is the sanitiser level (i.e. chlorine or bromine) and PH level. You will need to test the water (using simple paper test strips which change colour and give you a reading within 10 seconds) you will know whether to add any Hot Tub chemicals as result of the reading on the test strip.
Jacuzzi’s are set to filter the water itself, passing the water through a UV-bulb – killing 99.9% of bacteria as an extra form of sanitisation.

For even simpler maintenance, we recommend using a product called AquaFinesse . In one simple weekly treatment their patented environmentally friendly formula gets to the root of the problem by loosening this layer of slime from the surfaces, it is then rinsed away by the action of the water and prevented from reforming. Result, a dramatic reduction in the levels of bacteria, needing only the minimal amount of sanitiser! Even calcium, the notorious destroyer of spas, is no match against the power of AquaFinesse.
Our full range of Hot Tub chemicals are perfect for keeping your Jacuzzi Hot Tub running smoothly!
