Your Delivery Day Checklist
Here is a list of the essential items you should have accounted for before your Hydropool Swim Spa is delivered:
- Ensure that your Hydropool Swim Spa has proper support (level concrete able to hold 250 lbs./ft ²).
- Take accurate measurements and make sure your swim spa has a secure delivery location.
- Ensure that there is a clear path for the delivery team to travel through.
- Be aware of all local codes and make sure you are compliant with them.
- Make sure your swim spa has a dedicated electrical circuit.
- Ensure that access panels are adequately accessible in case service is needed.
- Be sure your installation location is near enough to a hose.
- It’s highly recommended that you install a safety rail to support the entry and exit of the spa.
- If you’re using a crane, be sure that you have two sets of able helping hands available during the delivery window.
If you’ve checked off all of these items, then you’re going to be in good shape come delivery day. One of the most important things to keep in mind is that your delivery team will need a safe and clear path.
That means removing any obstructions from the delivery pathway, clearing vertical space so that there are no incidents with electrical wires or low-hanging trees, and informing the team of any staircases they’re going to have to traverse along the delivery path.
All Hydropool Swim Spas require a dedicated electric circuit. In order to have that circuit installed, you’re likely going to need a permit from your city or county. Be aware of the local codes regarding electrical installation, or you may wind up dealing with some headaches before you can enjoy your swim spa.
If you plan on building a deck for your swim spa, there are typically construction codes regarding exterior surfaces that you need to be aware of before you begin work on one. And you should also be aware of any fencing requirements for your swim spa, as many cities and counties set barrier codes designed to protect small children.
The Day of Your Delivery
If you’ve got all of the items on your pre-delivery checklist squared away, you’re now ready for delivery day. It’s important to ensure that the delivery path is still free of all obstacles, so be sure to run through it once more before the delivery team arrives.
You’re also going to need a licensed electrician on hand to get your Hydropool Swim Spa connected to the electrical hookups. Schedule for them to be there ahead of time to avoid any issues.
Remember that if you’re going to be using a crane, you’ll want two non-disabled people there to assist with the delivery, so have them there and ready to go well before the delivery team arrives.
