    4 Person Cedar Tub is ready for delivery to Orange, NSW

    4 Person Ukko Cedar Tub
    Pre-assembled 1.4m dia Ukko Cedar Hot Tub
    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:
    Minimum space for the jet
    Minimum distance from the edge of the tub to the jet
    Always allow extra space for plumbing. It is not only jets you need to consider. There are skimmer and suction too:
    Skimmer/Suction and Jets assemblies
    Minimum distance from the gate valve is about 250mm
    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:
    Ukko tub jets
    All Ukko tubs come with jets arranged at different heights (unless you want them at the same level)
    Now minimum distances from the top of the tub to skimmer and the highest jet:
    Jet line and skimmer/suction assembly
    Standard distances from top to the highest jet and skimmer
    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:
    Ring and skimmer
    Distances from the top of the tub to skimmer and the top ring
    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:
    Electric Equipment
    Filter is top load so you need to have minimum height of the enclosure to be about 950mm in order to take the cartridge out for cleaning.
    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:
    Air jet controls
    Air jets controls must be above water level. Otherwise water will leak from there.
    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.
    In conclusion, the more space you allow for plumbing, the easier it will be for you to install and maintain your tub.
