Q: What kind of a surface must the hot tub be placed on?
A: Choose a flat surface that can withstand the full weight of the tub.
The surface can be evened out with stone chippings, for example. If you want to have a more solid foundation, you can cast one from concrete or use ready-made slabs. It is also recommended to keep the surrounding area of the tub free of vegetation.
You should place drains on the foundation of a wooden tub in order to keep the bottom of the tub sufficiently dry and prevent rot.
Q: How soon (after the delivery) can I use my hot tub?
A: When placed on a ready-made foundation, the installation of the tub takes around one hour. The hot tub is delivered assembled with the heater detached. To start using the tub, you only need to install the heater, the chimney and the outlet valve. Please read the instructions for use carefully before using the tub for the first time. Note that filling and heating the tub take their time as well.
Q: Can the hot tub be embedded into a terrace?
A: Yes it can, provided that the heater is placed outside the terrace in a fire-safe area. Be sure to also take water drainage into account when considering the placement.
