How to get ready for a Jacuzzi Hot Tub delivery: A Step-by-Step Guide

So, you've made the exciting decision to add a Jacuzzi hot tub to your home—a fantastic choice for relaxation and enjoyment. Before your hot tub arrives, it's important to prepare adequately to ensure a smooth and hassle-free delivery process. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you get ready:

1. Choosing the Perfect Spot

Selecting the right location for your hot tub is crucial. Look for a flat, level surface that can support the weight of the tub when filled with water. Consider factors like privacy, accessibility, and proximity to electrical outlets.

2. Preparing the Foundation

A solid, level foundation is essential for the stability and longevity of your hot tub. Depending on your chosen location, this may involve pouring a concrete slab, installing a pre-formed spa pad, or using a reinforced deck. It is essential to ensure there is no more than a 2cm difference in level across the base to prevent the hot tub from rocking or the frame being damaged.

3. Clearing the Area

Before delivery day, clear the designated area of any debris, obstacles, or items that could obstruct the path. Trim back vegetation and remove outdoor furniture to create a clear pathway for the delivery team.

5. Ensuring Accessibility

Measure all access points, including gates, doorways, and pathways, to ensure that the hot tub can be manoeuvred into place without any issues. Ask your dealer if they can come out and conduct a site survey. Most reputable dealers prefer to do this shortly after you place your order (or even before) to ensure there will be no hiccups on the day. Remove any barriers or obstacles that may hinder the delivery process and follow any instructions the site survey highlighted.

5. Arranging Utilities

Ensure that your chosen installation area has access to the required electricity supply. If necessary, hire a certified electrician to install the required electrical connections. Unlike some hot tubs, many Jacuzzi models don't need a plumber for installation, just access to a hosepipe that will comfortably reach the hot tub location. If you know that your water pressure is low, contact your dealer to check if they would prefer to drop off a device you can fill the day before.

6. Communicating with the Delivery Team

Keep in touch with your Jacuzzi dealer or supplier to coordinate the delivery date and time. Provide clear instructions about access points, parking arrangements, and any specific requirements for the delivery team.

7. Being Present for Installation

On the day of delivery, ensure that you or someone responsible is available to receive the hot tub and provide guidance to the delivery team. Have a clear plan for where the tub will be placed and ensure everything is in order before signing off on the delivery. The delivery team will likely show you how to use your hot tub and keep the water sanitised, so having a notepad and pen nearby will help you remember what is said.

8. Protecting Your Investment

Once your hot tub is installed, take steps to protect it. Establish a regular maintenance routine to keep your hot tub clean, balanced, and functioning smoothly. Contact your dealer if you have any questions about water balance or how to use your hot tub

By following these steps and adequately preparing for your Jacuzzi hot tub delivery, you'll soon be able to relax and unwind in your own garden oasis. Get ready to enjoy countless hours of relaxation and rejuvenation in the comfort of your home. Cheers to your new Jacuzzi hot tub experience!
