The wow factor was essential, at least one massage cannon was required and a fully automatic cover was on the wish list too. The project underwent several modifications until a technical design was finalised with the client. SpaFlo manufactured this amazing stainless steel hot tub from 316L grade stainless steel utilising the world’s top manufacturers of jets, controls and equipment. The three pump, 28 massage jet hot tub incorporates a Roldeck automatic solar gain slatted cover and a swan neck massage cannon, all controlled via modern touchscreens and remotely via Wi-Fi. Additional structural consideration was given to the niche required for the main contractor to install a glass balustrade onto the hot tub all down one side. All external welds were carefully polished out and the hot tub was plumbed, wet tested and insulated in house. It was manufactured ahead of schedule so it could be craned onto its 9th floor penthouse balcony with other items being installed during the refurbishment of the circa £15m central London apartment.
