liverpool hot tub hire
Hot tubs hold an unbelievable amount of water. They can flood a garden in minutes if you don't have a proper system in place to empty the tub when a water change is required.
We found that the best way to do this is to buy a pump online and attach it to a hose. This way you can feed the hose straight into your drain and not have the worry of flooding your prized pansies.
There are lots of great, submersible pumps on the market that are designed specifically for this purpose and cost between £35-£100, depending on the model.
2016 has seen a huge surge in the popularity of hot tub hire in the UK and major cities across England and Wales. More people than ever are now choosing to hire a gorgeous hot tub instead of purchasing one. The huge initial outlay and burden of cleaning and maintaining a tub in the long-term has made lot's of people turn to the more sensible option of rental instead. We couldn't be happier (obviously).
With everything included in your rental cost, renting is definitely more financially viable for the majority of people.
Rent a hot tub every time!
Ok, so we're just more than a bit biased here but we honestly do believe that rental is the way forward for many people.
The financial outlay to buy a hot tub is huge. Most good quality tubs cost upwards of £5k and some of the really swish ones can cost £10k and more.
Then there is the logistics of getting it into your back garden. Moving firms are required (which again costs money) then for some with a tricky access to the back - cranes may be needed. Wow! That's costly.
To hire a tub is a fraction of the price. No cranes are required and it is available only when you need/want to use it. It's amazing how many people spend thousands on a hot tub and forget about it after a few months once the novelty has worn off.
So it has to be hot tub hire for us. What do you think?
I remember when we bought our first hot tub. We'd jump in, all giddy and eager to relax amongst the bubble, water would spill over the side and the towels would get soaked.
Then we decided to move a garden chair up to the hot tub area to rest our towels on. This kinda worked as a dryness method but it didn't look great and when the towels fell off and onto the floor, we were in the same boat.
The next thing that we tried was buying a plastic washing basket to store the towels in. This worked well but again was not that nice to look at.
The best thing that we bought was one of those unites made up of four plastic cubes from a famous Swedish furniture shop. It's practical but also is a design statement and looks really cool.
We'd definitely recommend it as a great addition to your hot tub area.

How hot should my hot tub be?
The weather in the Uk is set to rise this week (yay!) and lots of you guys are wanting to make the most of your hot tubs. But how hot should your hot tub be?
In the colder months, you should aim for around 35-40 degrees. That is the perfect temperature for us when it's chilly outside.
The temperature this week is set to rise to 26,27 and maybe even 28 degrees in parts of the North West this week. That means that you might find a hotter tub too hot.
We have ours set to 32 degrees at present. It seems to be a good number to aim for in this climate. The great thing is though, many tubs can cool down within an hour or two if you still think that that's too hot.
Let us know what you think. Remember to stay hydrated and keep safe.
Inflatable or solid hot tub to hire or buy?
This really is a personal choice.
I personally think that there is a space on the market for both.
The solid tubs are great. They last longer, they have seating in them (usually), they can have bluetooth etc and lots of other little gadgets but they cost more. A lot more.
The inflatable tubs have come a long way now. They are more hardy, the jets have more power now and they are a great first tub to start with.
The inflatable tubs once got a bit of a bad rep for being a bit like a paddling pool. They certainly aren't like that now. Their toughened plastic feels almost like their solid counterparts.
They are also a lot more mobile, no cranes or removal of fence panels needed here!
Pro's and Con's to both, either way, enjoy and relax!
Hot Tub Review
Over the next few months, we will be reviewing the hot tubs on the market at the moment.
The first of which will be the Intex Octagon spa.
This is a great tub, perfect for newbies to the hot tub world and is relatively cheap to purchase (£500-£700).
We have had 6 adults in this tub easily and it is a lot less paddling-pool-like than some of the others on the market.
Its a lovely design, with muted neutral tones and inflates fully within minutes.
The top temperature is 40 degrees celsius and we found that the tub took on average 6 hours to reach that temperature.
The tub cost on average £20 per week to be kept on constantly, we found this was the most efficient way to run the tub.
There is a lovely inflatable tub deck that can be purchased as an extra if you'd like but it certainly isn't a requirement.
The bubbles are nice and strong, they really pack a punch.
Importantly, we really liked the locking mechanisms of the tub, great to keep little people safe.
The tub comes with full instructions that are really easy to follow and we found the set up quick and simple.
We'd definitely recommend this tub, it's one of the best in the price range and certainly worth spending a little bit more on.
Hot Tub Chemicals and Accessories
So you've bought or hired a gorgeous hot tub, and that in itself is glorious - but what would be lovely to go with it?
With our lovely, reliable English weather, the number one accessory has to be a gazebo or shelter of some description. You can buy quite lovely pop up versions for a very reasonable price these days. We find that the addition of a couple of packs of solar light, beautifully displayed in the roof can really set the scene.
Side tables are great for resting drinks, snacks or (if you're brave) your mobile phones on top of. Floating tables are available too but can be in for a bit of a bumpy ride once the bubbles get going! Who fancies a pina colada tipping all over them and leaving clumps of coconut floating in the water? No thanks.
Parasols are a good alternative to gazebo's but obviously don't have the same protection from the elements, although they look very pretty in the summer.
Plastic cups are wise, brightly coloured and summery are the order of the day.
