delivery is Kerb Side only with the customers manpower to offload the tub. We
can try and organise 2 men delivery or crane services at additional cost.
Moving goods from Kerb Side is at your risk and responsibility. Where our
driver is requested to or there is an implication that delivery should be made
onto your property or any private property this may be done at the drivers
discretion but is entirely at your risk and responsibility. Any damage incurred

driveways adjacent to a narrow or difficult access route will be the
responsibility of the customer.

If the tub is
delivered by an articulated lorry. This is to be assumed that you have lifting
facilities at your end. On some occasions, a tail lift can be ordered at extra
cost. This is kerbside delivery only and a 3rd party delivery driver will not
be able to help you move the tub.

Anything other than a
hot tub would be delivered by articulated lorry and lifting facilities would be
required at your end.

will be reimbursed to BalticSpa by the buyer.

We will deliver the
hot tub with our own 4×4 or van and a trailer – however we will need minimum of
3 additional strong men to assist with the lifting of the hot tub. The bigger
the tub, the more man power will be required due to the weight.

7. Warranty

Warranty: We do not
offer or imply any warranty on any wooden products / parts / components due to
the nature of the product unless specifically stated in the product description
as shown on this web site or invoice.

The fully wooden tub
should be filled up with water within 7 days after the delivery to avoid
excessive shrinkage. Keep the water in the wooden tubs all the time!

PLEASE NOTE: New fully
wooden tubs will leak. While in most cases the wood will swell up and seal up
within 3-5 days, please allow 7 days for spruce and 10 days for larch to fully
seal up.

DO NOT USE COAL OR ANY
OTHER WOOD ALTERNATIVES AS A FUEL, AS THIS MAY DAMAGE THE HEATER DUE TO HIGHER
BURNING TEMPERATURES.

While we encourage to
use a wood treatment on regular basis (one application before winter and one
after), please DO NOT apply any wood treatment to the inside of the tub as this
will block water absorption which may cause the tub to leak permanently as the
wood would not expand and seal up.

Wooden SPA Solutions
Ltd guarantees that the goods supplied will be free from defects on arrival. If
you notice any damage, please report to us within 2 days. BalticSpa.co.uk will
replace the faulty parts within 30 working days (Parts warranty only).

Warranty does not
extend to accidental damage – only to manufacture faults

The following
situations are specifically excluded from this guarantee:

·   
Damage caused by incorrect handling, storage, installation, use,
modification, or repair not authorised by BalticSpa.co.uk

·   
Wear and tear

·   
3rd party products guaranteed by subcontractors

·   
Self assembly kits

*Warranty does not
extend to accidental damage – only to manufacture faults

In the Event of any
part being replaced under a warranty, it is your responsibility to fit that
part.

Timber Products:

You accept that wood
is a natural material. It differs from man-made materials each piece of timber
will have grains and knots which will vary. Being a natural product wood will
react to changes in atmospheric conditions. Some splitting of the timber may
occur as it expands and contracts with changes of humidity and temperature.
These are perfectly natural and does not affect the integrity of the timber or
of the structure it is used in and therefore splitting, cracks & knots etc
are not covered by any warranty.

We can not be
responsible for any lack of air ventilation / weather conditions which can
cause a mould to grow, etc.
We also can not be responsible for the lack of draw / fire in the burning
chamber due to the location of the tub.

The goods provided by
BalticSpa.co.uk are a natural product and as a result slight variations in
colour, size and weight may occur from time to time. Wooden SPA Solutions Ltd
will endeavour to keep these variations within limits but cannot guarantee
continuity between batches of.

Stainless steel grades:

Grade 430. This type of
stainless steel comes a standard and is the most popular choice as most people
do not treat the water and is much cheaper then other types of stainless steel.
If you intend to use chlorine, bromine, sea salts or any other water treatments
which affetc pH, you need to upgrade to 316 type. No warranty/ replacement will
be provided if any issues occur with your heater and the manufacturer
identifies the corrosion.

Grade 304. Stainless steel
is non-magnetic. In general, this grade is more resistant to various solutions
but wood treatments affecting water’s pH should be avoided.

Grade 316. Stainless steel is
also non magnetic. This stainless steel has the best corrosion resistant
properties and is chlorine friendly.

8. Electrical and final connections

BalticSpa.co.uk does
not supply any of its products with electrical attachments i.e. plugs or wiring
to hot tub/ sauna. The hot tub/ sauna MUST be installed / connected to circuit
breaker and tested by a Part P qualified/ competent electrician before use or
turning on of the hot tub/ sauna.

Do not attempt to
install a Hot Tub/ Sauna electrics yourself if you are not a fully qualified
electrician.

The Hot Tub/ Sauna
must be hard wired on its own fused spur back to your household consumer unit
(i.e. the Hot Tub / Sauna electrical heater should not be sharing a supply with
any other appliances).

The Hot Tub /Sauna
should be protected by a sufficiently rated MCB (mains circuit breaker) and
should cover the maximum amperage pull of the Spa plus 25% to allow for brake
torque (i.e. the extra rush of current when pumps are first started). Therefore
a Hot Tub/ Sauna that has a maximum current draw of 20 amps should be fitted
with a 25amp MCB.

Outdoor cabling should
be protected from damage by either laying protective ducting (pc pipe) below
ground or by using Steel Wired Armoured (SWA) cable. Your electrician will
calculate the size of cable required depending on the loading and the distance
from the mains supply.

The electrical
requirements for the 13AMP Hot Tubs are the simplest to complete. The 13AMP Hot
Tubs simply plug into a standard domestic power supply so all you need for the
13AMP Hot Tubs is an outdoor waterproof plug socket with RCD protection which
your qualified electrician will be able to install.
