We’ve delivered Larch timbers for our hot tubs and started to manufacture few of them now. While we are test fitting few tubs, we would like to explain a little bit what’s involved in our tub assembly.
Category: How to assemble tubs
On customer’s request, this Cedar 4 person tub was pre-assembled and pre-plumbed at the factory. Having this tub here at the moment and waiting for customer to pick it up, we decided to explain a bit more about plumbing and extra space required when considering installing hot tub: Always allow extra space for plumbing. It is not only jets you need to consider. There are skimmer and suction too: More extra space you’ve allowed will make it easier for you to install and maintain your tub. As you can see from above image, we’ve designed our jets to be different heights which covers lower and upper back: Now minimum distances from the top of the tub to skimmer and the highest jet: And don’t forget that there’s a top ring with rod and if you want to cover that below are the measurements you need to take in to account: This info will help you when designing enclosure for your tub. Also you need to allow for filter cartridge as it needs to be accessed regularly for maintenance: Now back to jets. Jets are supplied with controls. We always split our jets in to two halves. That is why we have even number of jets in our standard tubs. The main thing to remember is that controls must be above water level: Two ways of doing this:
- Have your enclosure about 50mm off the top of the tub or
- Make up a little box for air controls to rise them up above water level.
