Hot Tub Installation - Part 2: Preparation

Sundance Hot Tub installation is easier than you think! This week we will look at the preparation needed to get the Sundance Hot Tub of your dreams installed in your backyard.

Getting a Sundance Hot Tub installed in your backyard is a much simpler process than you might imagine. In the first blog of our series, we looked at different locations you can install a Sundance Hot Tub, this week we highlight what needs to be done before your new Sundance Hot Tub is delivered.

You Need a Solid Surface

A solid, level pad built of stone pavers, sidewalk blocks or interlocking patio stones are the most common surfaces our Hot Tubs are installed on.

Other options include pouring a cement pad, building a composite slab made of wood and gravel, or laying down Modular hot Tub Pads that are made of heavy duty plastic. Any of these choices will serve as an excellent base for your new Sundance Hot Tub.

Come in and talk to our professional sales staff for more information on Sundance Hot Tub pad preparation - we can even arrange for the Hot Tub pad to be laid for you!

Is Your Location Accessible?

In most cases getting your Sundance Hot Tub into your backyard is a fairly simple and straightforward process.

At The Sundance Spa Store, we have a lot of experience in delivering Hot Tubs and have navigated many complicated installations. With over 14 years experience delivering Sundance Hot Tubs to locations throughout the GTA & Niagara regions, there isn't much we haven't seen!

When you visit one of our 4 locations to choose the Sundance Hot Tub that is just right for you, we recommend you bring in some photos on your phone of the area you are planning on putting the Hot Tub as well as some pictures of the possible access points. This will enable us to get a better idea of your needs and how we can best install your new Sundance Hot Tub.

We are also able and willing to come out to your home for a free site inspection to make sure the installation will run smoothly on delivery day.

Electrical Requirements

Sundance Hot tubs either require 110V or 220V of electricity. If you choose a model that can operate on 110V, such as the Prado, Prado 5, Denali, Tacoma or Dover, then you are able to simply plug the Hot Tub into a regular electrical outlet in the backyard.

If you choose a 220V model, then you will need to contact a certified electrician to ensure you have enough electricity to power your Sundance Hot Tub, and then the electrician will be required to run the appropriate wires from your electrical panel to and outdoor GFCI and from there to the Sundance Hot Tub.

Our staff at any location can help you understand the pros and cons of the two electrical configurations and can explain the specific electrical requirements for the model you choose.

Our delivery team can co-ordinate with you and your electrician to arrange a suitable delivery time. We can also arrange for an independent Electrical Contractor to come out and give you a free estimate for the electrical hook up of your Sundance Hot Tub.

We have worked with our recommended electrician, Calibre Electric, for 14 years, and know they can be relied upon to perform excellent work in a timely manner. In addition to the electrical work, Calibre can also install a Hot Tub pad for your Sundance Hot Tub to sit on to make the installation process even easier! 

Filling Your Sundance Hot Tub

Some people think that Hot Tubs require plumbing—but that is not the case! A Sundance Hot Tub is a completely self-contained vessel designed to provide you with amazing hydrotherapy benefits.

Once installed, you simply fill your new Sundance Hot Tub with a garden hose. Once the power is connected, the water circulates through the Hot Tubs MicroClean Filtration System (On 780, Select, 880 & 980 Series Models) and the ClearRay UV-C Water Purification System (On all Models, including 680 Series) to keep your Sundance Hot Tubs water clean and clear.

Drains are built in to all Sundance Hot Tubs to make changing your water a breeze. On average, Hot Tub owners will change their water 2-4 times a year to keep everything nice and fresh.

The Sundance Spa Store's 4 locations (Burlington, Mississauga, Oakville & St. Catharines) are open 7 days a week, so we are always ready to help you select the Sundance Hot Tub that is just right for your needs and that will fit perfectly in your preferred backyard location.
