We know you’re excited about your new hot tub, and we want to deliver it safely. Because each location is different, there’s a few things you need to do to prepare.
Each delivery is different because each location is different.
Each delivery is different because each location is different. Because of that, It’s helpful to our planning if you send photos of where the hot tub will be located and of the route to get there from the driveway. In addition, knowing the dimensions of the area around the hot tub as well as measurements of any tight or narrow points along the expected route from driveway to tub location is also helpful. Pictures and measurements allow us to determine which dolly to use and how much clearance is allowed. Please move any debris/clutter to allow for a smooth delivery. Frankly, the more information you can provide us with, the better. Please refer to the diagram below for the type of information we seek. If you’re unsure on how to calculate the clearance or have any questions, just give us a call.
Depending on how your hot tub is wired, you’ll need the correct power source.
Hot tubs are wired for either 110 (115) or 220 (230) with 110 tubs generally requiring a dedicated outlet and 220 tubs requiring a sub panel. While some models (Freeflow) are considered “plug-n-play”, it is generally preferable to have them connected to a dedicated outlet. You’re always welcome to use the electrician of your choosing, however, if you don’t have an electrician, Mainely Tubs is happy to coordinate this service with a licensed electrician for you. All costs related to electrical wiring are the responsibility of the homeowner. Please contact Mainely Tubs for additional questions and pricing.
Clean source water for your hot tub is important.
Clean source water for your hot tub is very important. Municipal water is acceptable and generally needs very few additional additives or filtration to ensure clarity prior to use. Well water, however, is different in every home and can be a different story. The best way to determine whether the water out of your tap is acceptable is to have it tested by a specialty firm and share those results with us. We often find that well water should be pre-filtered while filling the tub. If that’s the case, we can provide you with a Clean Screen Pre Filter. Water that has only modest levels of suspended solids (iron, manganese, etc.) can be treated with the product Metal Gon prior to adding the sanitizing chemicals to the tub. If you find you are having trouble with your water, our staff is fully trained on water care. Simply contact Mainely Tubs, and we’ll help you out.
