Common Questions Asked About Renting a Hot Tub
1. How much does the tub weigh without water and with water?
The hot tub weighs roughly 276 lbs without water and 1,900 lbs when filled with water.
2. How are the hot tubs cleaned?
A disinfectant solution is used on the tub after every use. It is powerwashed and wiped down as well. Soap is not used to
clean the tub as it creates a residue and film which can result in future unwelcome soapy bubbles.

Filters are submerged in a dealer recommended solution and rinsed clean before and after every use. The filters are replaced
after 6 months.

Currently, it takes 2 days to heat the water. We are investigating a portable electric water heater which will allow us to heat the
water in approx. 4 hours.
5. What can I (the renter) do to ensure the water stays at optimal temperature?
Make sure the cover stays on the hot tub when not in use. On extremely cold days, if you are having trouble maintaining
optimal heat the manufacturer suggests you turn off the jets periodically when in use so power can re-direct on heating the unit.

rental period. All renters must be 19 years of age or older and sign a rental agreement prior to renting/delivery of the hot tub.
