It is the hirers full responsibility to make sure the area where the hot tub is going to be placed is suitable and will not cause any damage.

Things like the filled weight of the tub (800-1600 ltrs = 180 – 360 gal of water) on the surface needs to be taken into account as well as the amount of water that will be displaced on the floor.

We do not recommend hot tubs go indoors as we cannot take responsibility for water spills.  


All the times and dates we quote for delivery or collecting the goods are approximate, we will not be liable for any delays caused by circumstances beyond our reasonable control.

Grassed areas are not ideal but, in some cases, where the grass is firm, level with no risk of puncture, we will allow it.  A hot tub will cause some discolouration to grass and for periods over 3 days this could cause permanent damage.
