Artesian Grand Bahama - My first hot tub
« on: August 10, 2013, 11:38:18 am »
So after waiting what seemed like a lifetime it finally arrived 7 weeks after ordering, it's an Artesian Island Grand Bahama 61 jet with dual footblasters, upgraded lights, ozone, pillowfall and pro cover as the winters are quite cold here in Denmark.

I had made a few preparations as the terrace needed extending for where I wanted to place the tub, so I laid out another 18 sq meters, enough room for the tub and gazebo.

It arrived on Tuesday and was moved into the garden that evening with the help of my neighbours, and placed with the power cable up through the front corner where it can't be seen.

Wednesday, after work,  I built the gazebo around the spa.

Thursday the electrician came over and hooked it up to the electric box, a breaker on the wall of the house and connected the tub. The cable was already installed by myself a few weeks earlier when I laid the terrace.

So the tub was up to temp Friday morning but I needed to work  :(. When I got home I added all the chems and it was ready to rock around 6pm.

So here are a few pics from the last 5 days.

Be easy while opening and closing the cover. The type of cover lifter that you have seems to stress the center stitching over time. Looks like some happy new owners!

Thanks guys.

spoiledrotten - thanks for the tip, I can see I also made a small mistake when assembling the lifter as the screw heads are facing up and will mark the cover over time, but nothing I can't easily remedy by turning them 90 degrees so they face away from the center stitching.

Added a couple of evening shots.

Great job, nice pictures and I am impressed with the delivery equipment. I especially like the picture of the neck jets in operation, they would do a great job on tension headaches in the back of the neck.

Oh, and from experience, I can tell you, if your over 6' tall (what ever the metric equivalent is, sit on the floor of the tub and put your feet up in the corner seats and those foot jets make great back jets!
