What are the top 3 benefits of using a hot tub?

A lot of the benefits of a using a hot tub depends on your overall health and how you use it.  But there are 5 main benefits from soaking in a hot tub.

1. Stress relief

I bought a hot tub! Now what?

If you bought a plug-and-play hot tub, these are relatively straightforward. They simply plug into a 13A socket which we can install if you do not already have one in your garden.  It is important though, to ensure you have a 13A RCD which will trip and turn off the hot tub off if there is a surge of electricity.  

Any hot tub which requires more than 13A needs to be wired directly into your electrical supply. Just give us a call so we can ensure your consumer unit has the capacity to add on this new circuit safely. 

Most hot tub suppliers will want you to have your electrical supply ready prior to delivery. This is important for them to test that the hot tub is working properly and to ensure you are set up correctly for their warranty. If you have any questions about a hot tub’s wiring specifications, you can give us a call.

Regardless of the type of hot tub you purchase, you can be confident that we can get you soaking in no time!
