Hot tubs are awesome in the snow and ice. We always say that a hot tub hire in winter is what hot tubs were made for. Check out the hot tub owners over in the colder Scandinavian countries – they seem to embrace the cold.
But being British we are notoriously sensitive to the cold, even in the North, however we do not like to admit it. Admittedly, a lot of bookings are for kids parties, therefore parents may be looking to protect their children as there is nothing worse than a poorly child!
Nevertheless hot tub hire bookings across Leeds are still coming in and we are doing everything we can to ensure your party goes off without a hitch.
Things do get a little trickier in the cold weather however, and we’d like to make you aware of how we manage the cold temperature and the operation of the pumps.
The Lay Z Spa pumps do not work below 4 degrees celsius ambient temperature (like won’t even let you pump them up)
You plug it in, press the “reset” button on the power lead and the pump instantly throws an E03 error. E03 is telling us it’s too cold! So how do we solve that? Well this is how we do it, which we hope you guys (our customers) can accommodate us when we need it.
1. We need to inflate the lid and hot tub up so we need the pump above 4 degrees, so if it’s less than that outside we need to be quick
We will either leave the pump in the van or in your home (please!) to keep the temperature of the pump above 4 degrees. Once we have the lid and tub in place, we will retrieve the pump and inflate them both quickly before the pump temperature drops. Easy!
2. The water circulating around the pump needs to be more than 4 degrees too, therefore to ensure this we will need to fill with your hot water.
We only need to fill past the bottom grey nozzle on the inside, so a combi boiler or water tank will be fine for this! We will attach the hose pipe to your inside tap to fill with warm water if it’s not too fancy. Please let us know if your tap is a little fancy as we may have problems.
3. The pump needs to be warm enough to turn on when the tub has filled sufficiently, therefore we can not leave the pump outside whilst the tub fills from empty.
We will place the pump back in the van or your house (just somewhere warm) until we have enough water in the hot tub hire tub for the pump to suck in. The pump is then attached and switched on. Genius! We did it. Everything should be okay from then on.
We’ve tried thermal jackets and wrapping them up but unfortunately no luck, so this is the process we may need to complete if its icy cold outside when your tub is delivered.
Your hot tub hire can be used to enjoy the outdoors even in the depths of winter.
