Portable Spas (Mains Power Only)
Portable spas offer the perfect solution for those who want to enjoy the benefits of a spa without the hassle and expense of a traditional installation. Portable spas are plug-and-play, meaning that they can be set up quickly and easily with no professional assistance required.
In addition, portable spas are highly versatile and can be moved to different locations as needed. As a result, they are an ideal option for anyone who wants to enjoy the relaxing effects of a spa without the permanence of a traditional installation.
What is a portable spa?
A portable spa is generally characterised as an above-ground (otherwise known as “freestanding”) spa that doesn’t require the usual external equipment like heaters, pumps or control panels to be installed separately. These are usually housed within the cabinet of the spa itself.
Can I put a portable spa in my garage?
The short answer is yes, absolutely! However, before jumping in there are a few important factors to consider:
Is there ample space for the spa?
Defining ample space will depend on what spa you want to go for but it’s a good idea to make sure there’s enough space to get in and out easily, while still being far enough away from any hanging objects or other hazards that could fall in.
Will children have unsupervised access to the spa?
A common worry for parents looking at getting a spa indoors is whether they can ensure the safety of their children around the spa, especially when an adult is not around. The best way to ensure this is to choose a quality cover for your spa.
Will the spa have access to the correct power supply?
One of the benefits of having a spa in the garage is that there is generally a viable power source nearby to run the spa with. However, this may not be the case for all garages and is an important consideration to make.
Are there going to be electrical hazards nearby?
If you’re someone who has managed to avoid cluttering their garage with odds and ends then we commend you! The fact is many of us have our garage chock-full of things, many of which have no place being near a large pool of water. If there’s any consideration you cannot miss, it is ensuring that no electrical hazards can occur in or near the spa.
What is a plug-and-play spa?
These spas come equipped with everything you need to get started, including a pump, heater, and control panel. All you need to do is plug the spa into a standard outlet, fill it with water, and you're ready to go!
How much are portable spas?
Generally, portable spas are a more affordable choice than traditional hot tubs. This isn’t only in the initial RRP for the spa but also in running costs due to them often using only a 10amp power supply.
So if you're looking for an easy and affordable way to enjoy the benefits of a hot tub, a plug-and-play spa is the perfect solution.
