If we agree to delivery and on attending the site on the confirmed day, are unable to affect delivery due to a buyer being unprepared, a return visit to deliver the spa will incur a minimum cost of £250.00.

Upon day of installation, our trained delivery team will assume full responsibility for the safe installation of your hot tub. You will not be requested to assist our installation team with the installation, and we ask that the area of installation is clear of any persons or pets.

6. Installation and Operating Requirements
The buyer should always observe the following installation and operating requirements and we shall not be liable for any loss, whether direct, indirect or consequential, arising from any failure to do so.
Buyers are responsible for arranging, prior to delivery and installation the appropriate and required electricity supply. Buyers are advised to use a professional registered electrician and must ensure compliance with the manufacturer’s electrical instructions, requirements and electrical regulations relating to this type of installation.
Buyers must ensure in the event of the spa, or its supply line, going to earth this will only trip the supply to the spa compliance which store data or are affected by a disruption of supply. The correct size fuse, 30 milliamp ELCB/RCD, the correct size of cable to suit the spa and the length of cable run, must be fitted to any spa installation. If set up by us is undertaken, this can only take place when the following requirements are in place. The correct electrical set up must be in place for us upon install day and buyers should refer to the pre delivery guide on the website for a full detailed description of the electrical set up they require for the selected spa. There must be easy level access over hard (not soft) surfaces with adequate allowance for the spa on its transport trolley or mat, width and length, as well as difficult corners. Indoor use is at the buyer’s risk and precautions must be made for leaks and access for the maintenance as well as taking appropriate actions to account for the build up of any additional heat of condensation in relation to the hot tub being placed indoors. Furthermore, spas should only be located on waterproof suitable flooring. A spa is a water filled vessel without an inbuilt drain. Spas can only be gravity drained slowly via a hose tail or pumped out with a submersible pump. Care should be taken to avoid drainage onto sensitive plants, ponds or running water containing fish or other life forms.
Any vessel of this type could leak and cause damage with volume of water involved. While indoor spa location is not recommended, if the spa is located indoors or on a surface where damage could occur, it is the responsibility of the buyer to make provision for dealing with a leak and limiting the risk of damage. Floor drainage should be considered on indoor locations where splash or leaks could cause problems, which any spa located over a basement or not on a ground floor should be fitted with a suitable bund tank with drain which should be able to handle the eventuality of any minor or major leak. Leaks can cause damage to both finish and structure of the surroundings if provision is not made to avoid such occurrence. Any damage by water or leaks within the hot tub are the sole responsibility of the buyer and we will not be liable for any compensation in regards such. The buyer should note that all dimensions are approximate due to the variations in bespoke manufacture. Accordingly (although permanent fittings for spas are not recommended anyway) the buyer should not construct such fittings prior to delivery.
For any warranty work, buyers must ensure the hot tub is accessible from all sides and there is adequate working space
7. Removal and disposal of packaging
In order to keep the costs of our products down it remains the sole responsibility of the buyer to dispose of any packaging that may be left from the installation of the hot tub or any other service provided

Referrals, for example, the name of contractors who may be able to carry out certain work, such as Cranes, Hi-abs and electricians are given as a professional courtesy only, and we cannot be responsible for any conduct or service provided by such contractors
