Gone are the days where you have to have a large garden, cranes, and a team of muscles to install a hot tub for a hire. Weekend hires seemed to be more hassle than they were worth with the larger hot tubs, and most companies would choose not to do less than a weekly hire due to the amount of stress involved.
The portable Spa-N-A-Box has made it an easy solution but without the customer having to sacrifice anything other than the seats that the big hot tubs have to offer. Although the Spa-N-A-Box does not have segregated seating areas, it is actually very comfortable, and great fun, as you have more room to move around, and it is so much more sociable than sitting in one place, not being able to move freely.
As you can tell, I am a complete lover of this design, the fact that we offer a hire service has nothing to do with it. We have one situated in our garden, as they can easily be packed away when not in use (saving on running/cleaning costs) and they don’t take over the whole garden.
The Spa-N-A-Box is approximately 7ft square in a hexagon shape, has simulated wood effect side panels, which are made from polystyrene. They are light and take no effort at all to put up.
The power pack is also very easy to use, with a thermostat control and a turbo wave button on it, simply press the arrow up to turn the temperature up and the down to turn the temperature down. On a hire we set the default to 38 degrees although the thermostat will reach temperatures of 40 degrees.
When the turbo wave is switched on the air jets will fire up, causing a little noise, but it’s definitely worth it, the Spa-N-A-Box has 130 micro jets and they are as powerful as you could ever need, easing away all your aches and pains and just leaving you refreshed and relaxed.
When using the turbo wave, the temperature will continue to fall gradually, as the jets are pushing air around making the temperature fall, but when the jets are off, the temperature will continue to rise again. (Leave the covers on the spa for the hot tub to reach optimum temperature)
So only taking approximately 20 minutes to install, 50 minutes to fill with water and being so easy to use, the Spa-N-A-Box is such a great hire option.
It can go on almost any flat surface, can even fit through your front door as they are stored in just two large boxes, so installation should really be a no fuss service.
There are a few things that you will need to do if you choose to hire any hot tub, and that is to add the appropriate chemicals to the hot tub over your hire period (making sure that the jets are on at all times, so the chemicals can dissolve quicker) and change your filter at least once. By not changing your filter you may feel the temperature drop.
Changing the filter is easy. Most hire companies will either leave you with a clean and dry filter, or ask you to hose the one that is already housed down and replace. Either way it is very important you do this, but making sure at all times, your power pack is switched off. (you may cause permanent damage to the powerpack if it is on, when trying to do this) Once you have a fresh filter to go in the system, place back into the power pack like the old one was situated, and then air bleed the system before you turn it all back on again.
To air bleed the system, you just turn the nozzle on top of the cap anti-clockwise until water gushes out (this may take a minute or two, but if there is no water flowing, then you may need to top the spa up a little bit more with the hose until water starts flowing freely) Do not turn the power pack back on until the system has been bled of air correctly.
But thats it, it may seem complicated, but it really isn’t, Just change the filter once, bleed the air and add some chemicals each day to keep the water clean and fresh.
Some hire companies on collection like us in Somerset will pump the water to a nearby drain so that you don’t have to have a pool of water on your grass, slabs or decking. I would suggest that this is a good idea, and it doesn’t take that long with the right equipment.
They are a truley great invention, and although there have been a few reports on forums about the power packs no being so reliable etc, when you are hiring obviously none of these problems are your problems, so all the more reason to hire, when you know that all the equipment is clean and tested before your hire, and you have none of the worries. Just sit back, relax and enjoy.
