Congratulations, you’ve decided to invest in a swim spa! You’ve decided how much you want to spend, you’ve chosen the best size spa for your needs, and you’ve researched what to expect as far as maintenance goes. But before you sign on the dotted line, you have just thought of one more important question. What are the power supply requirements for a swim spa?
As a matter of fact, just what do you need to do to prepare for the delivery of your new swim spa? Your friends at Aqua Pools are your swim spa professionals, and we are here to make sure you have all the details squared away (including power supply requirements for a swim spa) before you take delivery of your new Marquis® Swim Spa.
What Are the Power Supply Requirements for a Swim Spa?
One of your first concerns prior to delivery will be the power supply requirements for a swim spa. All Marquis® ATV™ (Aquatic Training Vessel) Swim Spas require a 240V/50 AMP electrical power connection. You will want to work with a licensed electrician to be sure this is set up correctly and according to code. Your electrician will know if any permits are required in your town for this service.
In addition to being sure your power supply requirements for the swim spa are in order, you will need to ensure that all water drains away from your electrical equipment area. In many cases, while you should consult with them in advance, the electrician performs the final power supply hook-up after the spa has been installed.
Location of Your Swim Spa
All Marquis swim spas are molded acrylic shells, that are pre-plumbed and ready to install on your sound and level surface. Typically this is a 6-inch thick concrete pad. If you are installing it on a deck, you will need to consult with a contractor or structural engineer to be sure the structure is strong enough to support it. A swim spa filled with water can weigh over 22,000 pounds!
You will also want to place in the vicinity where it will easily reach its power supply.
Naturally, you will want to allow a reasonable amount of clearance space around the swim spa for maintenance and service access. The swim spa experts at Aqua Pools will be a good resource for you to consult with on these details.
How to Prepare for Delivery Day of Your Swim Spa
Once your location is prepared and your power supply requirements for a swim spa are organized, you will need to prepare for its delivery. And don’t worry, you won’t have to do any of the heavy lifting! You will work closely with the pros at Aqua Pools, who have all the tips and tricks you need to know to be ready when the delivery truck arrives.
First and foremost, the delivery path needs to be clear and accessible. If fencing needs to be temporarily removed to make room for the delivery of the swim spa, Aqua Pools will work with you to get that accomplished. It is possible that a crane may be required to get the swim spa positioned.
There are a number of details to iron out prior to the delivery of your Marquis ATV Swim Spa, and Aqua Pools is here with you every step of the way. The power supply requirements for a swim spa will be one of the first details you will need to focus on, but there are other considerations as well. When you work with Aqua Pools, communication, advance planning, and your ultimate satisfaction are paramount concerns for us. Once we help you address the details, your new swim spa could be installed in as little as one day!
