Preparing and maintaining your spa or hot-tub from Mountain Springs Spas
  • Where can I put my spa or hot-tub from Mountains Springs Spas?
    You can enjoy your Mountain Springs Spas both indoors and outdoors. Designed to cope with the very harshest climates, your Mountain Springs Spa will have no problem coping with the worst of our winter weather. In fact, there is nothing better than sitting in your warm and relaxing Mountain Springs Spa and looking up at the stars when there is snow on the ground.
  • Will my Mountain Springs Spa need a cover?
    Yes. Indoors or outdoors, your Mountain Springs Spa will need a suitable hot-tub cover to keep in the heat and the steam and keep out dirt and the elements.
  • What base does my Mountain Springs Spa need to be positioned on?
    Ideally every spa or hot-tub should be placed on a solid, strong and level base. Concrete and paving slabs are perfect for this task but many people are now using carefully laid wooden decking as an attractive alternative. However, it is important to make sure that any base is strong enough to carry the full weight of your Mountain Springs Spas spa or hot-tub when it is full of water. Your Mountain Springs Spas dealer will be able to offer you advice and design ideas and possibly quote for creating a base for you.
  • What electrical requirements are there?
    To heat your Mountain Springs Spas spa or hot-tub, it will need access to an electrical power supply of 16 Amps or 32 Amps (Timberwolf and Grizzly Royale only). The electrical supply should be as close to the spa or hot-tub as possible and should be connected by a qualified electrician, as they are not plugged-in. The 32 Amp spas will need a rotary isolator within one meter of the spa. This will also need to be fitted by a qualified electrician.
  • What plumbing and drainage considerations are there?
    The side of every Mountain Springs Spa or hot-tub comes away to reveal a drain tap, to which a hose-pipe can be connected and water channelled directly to a mains drain. If your Mountain Springs Spa is inside you will need drainage underneath with a submersible pump connected to a drain nearby or outside.
  • How do I fill my Mountain Springs Spa or hot-tub?
    Simply with a hose-pipe!
  • How long will my Mountain Springs Spa take to heat up?
    It varies depending upon the volume and temperature of the water, and the ambient temperature. It should be no more than a matter of hours.
  • How do I clean my Spa?
    Cleaning is best done when the spa is empty and there is a range of suitable cleaning materials available. We recommend that you clean the filters once a month by removing them from the spa and giving them a high-powered jet wash.
  • Will it need servicing?
    There is no fixed servicing schedule.
  • What chemicals will I need?
    There are basically three chemicals required: Bromine or Chlorine, to sanitize the water, and PH increaser and reducer, used to adjust the PH balance of the water. In addition, there are other optional chemicals, such as anti-foam, no-scale among others.
  • How often will the filters need changing?
    The filters will need changing at least once a year.
