What do you need for hot tub installation?

What does it cost to install a hot tub?
The costs of hot tub installation will be affected by where you want the hot tub installed and the price of the hot itself.
Can I install a hot tub myself?
Installing a small 13 AMP hot tub yourself is possible, as these hot tubs are predominantly self-contained systems. However, in order to do so properly, you may need to pour concrete or check that your decking can withstand the weight. Hiring a professional installer can help to ensure that the job is performed safely.
Can you plug a hot tub into a regular outlet?
13AMP hot tubs are commonly plugged into a regular outlet (standard domestic plug socket). However, these hot tub installations still require an outdoor waterproof plug socket with RCD protection in order to be used safely. Larger hot tubs have more complex power requirements.
What size breaker do I need for a hot tub?
The size of RCD circuit breaker that you need for your hot tub depends on the size and power requirements of your hot tub. Whilst ‘plug and play’ 13 AMP hot tubs can plug into waterproof domestic power supplies with RCD protection, 32 and 40 AMP hot tubs need 6mm² 3-core SWA cable and 10mm² 3-core SWA cable, respectively, as well as an IP65 45AMP Rotary Isolator Switch. These should be fitted by an electrician who meets Part P requirements.
Does a hot tub need to be plugged in all the time?
A hot tub can be plugged in and switched on all the time, as it is more economical and better for the machine to be maintaining temperature, as opposed to heating it up from cold every time you want to use it.
How much does a hot tub raise your electric bill?
Hot tubs can raise your electric bill by £20 to £40 per month, depending on the particular product you opt for and your tariff charges.
Is it cheaper to leave a hot tub on all the time?
It’s cheaper, in the long run, to leave a hot tub on all the time, as opposed to turning it off after each use. If you use your hot tub regularly then it’s more economic to let the hot tub maintain its heat, as heating it up from cold takes a lot of electricity.
How long can you sit in a hot tub?
You can sit in a hot tub between 15-30 minutes, or 45 minutes at most, depending on factors such as your water temperature, the ambient temperature, personal health and your age. You can always return to your hot tub after a short break.
Does having a hot tub increase home value?
Hot tubs that are built into the ground surrounded by pleasant landscaping are generally thought to increase home value if the hot tub is well maintained. Research by Lloyds TSB insurance found that 1 in 10 houses posses a hot tub as they are increasingly being considered essential in luxury properties. Portable hot tubs generally don’t increase property value as they are considered personal property.
What is the life expectancy of a hot tub?
