Your responsibility when hiring goods
You must assist us in the delivery and collection at your location. You must give us clear instructions, and take all reasonable steps to ensure the safety of our people. We accept no responsibility for any damage or injuries caused. The hirer will supply the electricity and water for the equipment in the hire period. You must make sure you have a suitable supply of electricity and it must be close proximity.
We require a flat level base to sit the hot tub on; this can be slabbed, concrete, blocks, decking or any firm hard standing. Grassed areas are not ideal but in some cases using OSB board (2 x 8ft x 4ft boards) or similar may be possible, if the ground is flat, level and hard. During the summer months we provide a foam flooring to stop any foreign objects cutting or piercing the tubs or spas. Although our hire tubs are 6 ft x 6 ft they need a minimum space of 7ft x 7ft for safety. You must ensure that there is sufficient access to get the spa into your chosen space. If access is not possible there will, under no circumstances, be any refunds.
The hirer will inspect the equipment with Anglia Hot Tubs and note and sign for any damage on the equipment. You become responsible for the goods when you receive the hired equipment. Please take extra care to stop sharp objects from being around or in the hot tub and prevent people from jumping in or on the hot tub.
You will be supplied with ample chemicals for the duration of your hire period. Do not use or add any other chemicals to the water other than chemicals supplied by Anglia Hot Tubs. Do not add bubble bath, foam bath or washing up liquid of any description. Failing to comply with these instructions may cause serious damage to your skin or body. The hirer will add chemicals required to maintain the water in the hot tub and understand the risks involved in not maintaining the water as per the manufacturer’s instructions. The pH range of the water must be kept AT ALL TIMES in the range 7.2-7.6 using the test kit and adjusters provided. Chlorine levels must be kept at 3-5ppm AT ALL TIMES. Please be aware that the effectiveness of chlorine is affected by both the pH level of the water and the number of bathers using the spa. Check the chlorine level of the spa pool constantly and add chlorine in capfuls to keep the dose rate as prescribed.
The hire of our hot tubs fall within two categories, Domestic Hire, for use of a small group of people within a domestic setting and commercial use including but not limited to use by members of the public or for a small number of customers in a business (non-domestic) setting. For domestic use we advise no more than 10 people use the spa throughout the hire period. You must ensure that the water is drained and refilled with fresh should it become discoloured/dirty. For commercial use record sheets of the chemical readings are to be filled out on an hourly basis and a copy of these records are handed to us upon collection of the hire spa. We also advise showers are taken by anyone intending to use the spa prior to getting in. The water is to be drained and refilled ready for the next day and the filters are to be cleaned by running them under the tap or using a hose pipe to forcefully inject water between the pleats clearing them of all debris and dirty water and then left to dry before inserting them back into the hot tub. It is the responsibility of the person hiring the spa to maintain the chemical levels and keep the water safe and clean for use. It is not the responsibility of Anglia Hot Tubs or any associates/employees of Anglia Hot Tubs.
You must not sell or in any way give up control of the goods. The hirer will not allow anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs to use the equipment. The hirer will not attempt to or move the equipment from the location that the owner has placed it. The hirer will not tamper or adjust any aspect of the equipment mechanics or electrics.
You will be responsible for any death, injury, loss or damage caused by the goods being misused while they are hired to you.
If any part of the goods is electrical, it should be used with the original plugs and sockets fitted to it. If the goods break down or are not working properly you must report this to us immediately. You must not use the goods or repair them unless we have agreed otherwise.
