Warranty

    Once your hot tub is installed, the engineer will demonstrate all functionality prior to leaving your premises.

    Once installed all hot tubs carry a manufacturers return to base, parts only warranty. Labour is excluded in the warranty due to Mr Tubby delivering spas throughout Europe, although included in the warranty is dedicated telephone technical support to the customer or their appointed Spa Engineer. The spa is a simple item to diagnose faults and therefore the sales prices reflect the exclusion of the labour element. Should you wish to have labour included then we will be more than happy to quote this.

    Although unusual, should you experience any problems with your hot tub Mr Tubby will arrange replacements parts via DHL Next Day service.
