We receive a lot of enquires from customers who are interested in sinking their new luxury Rotospa into decking or similar.
This is now very common and if done correctly looks fantastic. There are a few key things that must be considered so that this idea will not only be attractive but also practical to the long term use of the hot tub.
- Power And Drainage Points – Your Rotospa will have the power cable and the drain located at the base of the spa. You will need to consider this when creating the area where your spa will be housed. A qualified electrician will be able to assist with the power supply for your spa. In terms of drainage, investing in a submersible pump would be a simple solution to this and will eliminate the need to access the drain port.
- Access For Service And Maintenance Works – All panels around your spa will need to be accessible as behind these are the inner components of your spa. This can be done using hatches or trap doors. Lifting straps underneath the spa are a great idea when sinking a spa. These will aid with lowering the spa and will also be very handy if the spa needs lifting out of the area which it sits.
- Drainage – The area where the spa will sit must also have good drainage. Any site with bad drainage will accumulate rain water which seeps through the top and will cause issues with your spa. This would not be covered by warranty so ensuring the area has good drainage is critical.
- Area Checks – Check at frequent intervals underneath the spa surface to ensure everything is in working order & that there is no sign of rodents or other outdoor animals.
- Cover Clips – All Rotospa thermal covers come with cover clips to secure the cover to the spa when not in use to ensure full insulation. Ensure space is allowed for these clips to be accessed when the spa is in place.
