Important to Note:
  • Heating an Empty Tub
    • It is crucial to avoid heating your hot tub when it is empty. Doing so can lead to severe consequences, including the risk of a fire or causing unrepairable damage to the tub. Always ensure that your hot tub is filled with an adequate amount of water before heating it to prevent any potential hazards or harm to the tub itself. Your safety and the longevity of your hot tub are of utmost importance.

       

Fiberglass vs. Other Hot Tub Variants

When it comes to choosing the perfect hot tub for your needs, the decision between fiberglass, acrylic and traditional wooden hot tubs can be a pivotal one. Let's explore why fiberglass hot tubs stand out:

  

  1. Unmatched Durability: Fiberglass is known for its remarkable strength, resisting warping, cracking, and rotting, ensuring your investment lasts.
  2. Effortless Maintenance: With non-porous fiberglass surfaces, cleaning is a breeze, and they remain resistant to stains and water damage, allowing you to focus on relaxation, not upkeep.
  3. Hygiene and Cleanliness: Fiberglass's inherent hygienic properties mean it resists bacteria and mould growth, and you can enjoy the water without worrying about harmful chemical releases.
  4. Superior Insulation: Enjoy efficient heat retention and reduced heating costs, thanks to fiberglass's excellent insulation capabilities.

    

In summary, fibreglass hot tubs combine durability, low maintenance, hygiene and exceptional insulation, making them the ideal choice for all your hot tub needs.

   

Painting

Below, you'll find our detailed in-house painting documentation. In this dossier, we present an extensive range of colour options to choose from, along with insights into our meticulous painting process and the high-quality paint materials we use ensuring your hot tub stays in tip top quality for years to come.

    

Order Timeline

Following your order confirmation, our production team initiates the crafting process. This stage typically requires 15-20 business days.

   

Delivery Estimate

After the fabrication is complete, we allocate an additional 5 days for the secure delivery of your hot tub. Our primary objective is to ensure that your order reaches you within the timeframe of 20-25 days from the date of order confirmation.

Electrical

Electrical Guide for Your Electric Upgrade

Before embarking on your hot tub installation journey, it's crucial to understand that this hot tub model is not a 13amp plug and play unit. Instead, it requires a dedicated hardwired electrical supply. Please take note of this important distinction as you prepare for the electrical setup of your hot tub. The following guide will walk you through the necessary steps to ensure a safe and efficient electrical connection.

  

Power Supply

The electrical upgrade package required a 6kW electrical supply .

This electrical setup must be hardwired, providing a dedicated power source for your hot tub. This connection will be made into a rotary isolator, which is a crucial component in the electrical setup of your hot tub.

The rotary isolator serves as a safety switch and allows you to control the power supply to your hot tub.

For expert guidance on wiring the rotary isolator from your fuse board and connecting it to your hot tub's power supply, we recommend consulting with your local qualified electrician. They have the knowledge and expertise to ensure a safe and reliable electrical setup for your hot tub.

   

Rotary Isolator Placement

Position the rotary isolator within 2-4 meters of the hot tub, ensuring convenient access for electrical connection.

         

        

Connecting the Hot Tub to the Isolator

Once the isolator has been mounted, your electrician will need to bring a cable from the isolator into the hot tub. There is a convenient access hatch located on the side of the spa, and your electrician will need to be connected into a 230V Commando Socket. 

These hot tubs come with a built in fuse board for all of the electrical appliances. These hot tubs are wired and connected by our in-house electricians. Your electrician will bring a cable and connect it into the commando socket which is located in the middle image below. This is only applicable if the electrical upgrade package is chosen.

   

Qualified Electrical Installation

Your safety is paramount when it comes to enjoying your Home Living Luxury hot tub to the fullest. If you do not have a rotary isolator installed on your property (as pictured above), you will need to have one installed. To guarantee a secure and efficient electrical setup, it's imperative to entrust this task to a qualified electrician who is well-versed in adhering to BS 7671 regulations. This guide outlines the essential knowledge to make your hot tub experience both enjoyable and secure.

 

  • Qualified Electrician: All electrical connections for your new hot tub must be carried out by a qualified electrician. The installation must conform to BS 7671 regulations to ensure your safety.
  • Residual Current Device (RCD): Your hot tub must be supplied through a residual current device (RCD) with a rated residual operating current not exceeding 30mA. This additional safety measure helps protect against electric shock.
  • Hardwired: The hot tub requires a hardwired connection and the instructions above must be followed and understood by both yourself and your electrician.
  • Rotary Isolator Requirements: Ideally, it should be as close to the hot tub as possible. This must have a minimum protection rating of IP66. Your electrician will be able to provide concise information regarding this.

        

By following these guidelines, you can confidently proceed with the electrical setup of your hot tub. Should you have any specific questions or require further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are committed to providing you with a safe and efficient electrical connection for your sauna experience.

       

Foundations

A crucial part of achieving longevity and getting the most out of our new cold tub is establishing a solid foundation. An inadequate foundation can lead to structural issues, potentially causing cracks in the tub. Uneven placement of the tub may alter its geometric shape, resulting in twisting of the wood, as well as the formation of gaps.

  

   
    Access for Installation & Maintenance

    For seamless installation and maintenance of our tub, access to all sides is essential. We recommend allowing approximately 300mm (about 12 inches) of clearance around the tub. 

    In instances where the tub is positioned in a tight corner or a confined space, it's important to consider the potential challenges this may pose for maintenance. Restricted access can hinder routine visual inspections, which are typically recommended every six months. This regular check-up is crucial to identify and address any issues promptly, preventing them from escalating into more significant problems. Therefore, when placing the tub in a snug location, please be mindful of the potential maintenance difficulties it may entail.

     

    Base

    The foundation is the bedrock upon which your outdoor tub will stand. To maintain the structural integrity and prevent warping over time, it's imperative that all of our products are fitted on a level and sturdy surface. We do not recommend installing on uneven ground, grass, or generally unsuitable surfaces. Instead, we advocate for the ideal base, which includes options such as concrete, tarmac, patio stones, or even a structurally sound patio decking.

    To ensure proper weight distribution and stability, it is crucial that the full, complete base is in contact with the ground. 

    It's crucial to avoid any substantial depressions or gullies on the base surface. A depression of more than 3/4 of an inch (20mm) at any point across the base can lead to undesirable consequences, such as the floor being pushed down or bowed up in the middle. 

     

    An inadequate base can result in gaps forming. Gaps may develop in the doors or walls. These gaps can have several consequences, including:

    1. Water Leakage: Gaps may permit water to seep out of the tub, potentially causing damage to the interior and its contents.
    2. Aesthetic Deterioration: Uneven gaps can mar the tub's appearance and affect its overall aesthetics.

    It's essential to ensure that the tub is placed on a level and appropriate foundation to prevent these issues.

      

    Note:

    If our recommendations for building / choosing a suitable base are not adhered to, the warranty of the tub will be nulled!

        

    How to Verify Your Hot Tub / Cold Tub's Base

    Checking the solidity and levelness of your tubs base is crucial to ensure a flawless installation and prolonged usage. You can follow these simple steps to confirm its suitability:

    • Use a level, a straight piece of material, alongside a spirit level to check for any rocking or depressions exceeding 3/4 of an inch (20mm).
    • For added peace of mind, consider consulting a local builder or landscaper to confirm that the surface is level, ensuring a solid foundation for your outdoor tub.

       

    Get Our Opinion

    If you have any doubts or questions about the surface where your hot tub will be installed, please reach out to us. We are dedicated to providing you with peace of mind and expert assistance throughout the process.

    To facilitate a comprehensive assessment of your base, we invite you to share images via email to sales@homelivingluxury.com. Please include the following details in your email, which will help us evaluate your situation accurately and efficiently:

        

    1. Images: Attach 3-5 images of your preferred base. This visual information is crucial for our assessment.
    2. Additional Information: If there are any specific details or noteworthy aspects related to your base, please provide them in the email. This may include any unusual features or conditions.
    3. Contact Number: Include your preferred contact number, allowing us to reach out to you promptly.
    4. Tub Type/Model: Kindly, mention the type, model and size you are interested in. This will help us tailor our guidance to your specific needs.

    Unlocking Wellness: The Healing Power of Hydrotherapy and Cold Plunge Therapy

    In an increasingly fast-paced world, finding moments of relaxation and rejuvenation is essential for maintaining both our physical and mental well-being. The hustle and bustle of daily life often leaves us yearning for a respite from stress and the perfect solution might be closer than you think. Enter the world of hydrotherapy, water submersion, and temperature manipulation - a realm where hot tubs and cold plunge tubs take centre stage. These remarkable tools harness the power of water and temperature to offer a multitude of health benefits. Let's delve even deeper into this therapeutic world, exploring its myriad features and how they can significantly enhance our lives.

     

    Hydrotherapy: A Soothing Oasis for Body and Mind

    The Science Behind Hydrotherapy

    Hydrotherapy is a time-honoured practice rooted in the idea that water, with its unique properties, can have a profound impact on the human body. One of the key principles of hydrotherapy is the use of water's temperature, buoyancy, and pressure to stimulate healing responses within the body.

     

    The Power of Temperature

    The temperature of the water plays a crucial role in hydrotherapy. In hot tub therapy, warm water immersion serves as a natural muscle relaxant. As the body soaks in the soothing warmth, tense muscles begin to release, promoting relaxation and stress reduction. The increased blood flow generated by the warmth also contributes to improved circulation, potentially alleviating conditions like high blood pressure and improving overall cardiovascular health.

    On the other end of the spectrum, cold plunge therapy involves immersing oneself in cold water, which can range from cool to icy temperatures. This sudden exposure to cold stimulates vasoconstriction, causing blood vessels to narrow. This, in turn, reduces inflammation and muscle soreness. Cold plunge therapy can also provide a burst of energy and mental alertness, making it an excellent choice for those seeking an invigorating start to their day.

     

    Water Submersion: The Elixir of Physical Relief

    Buoyancy and Support

    Water's buoyant properties are a hallmark of hydrotherapy. When immersed in water, the buoyant force counteracts gravity, reducing the strain on joints and muscles. This buoyancy offers a unique form of support for individuals with conditions such as arthritis or chronic pain. It allows them to exercise and move more freely, promoting flexibility and mobility.


    Hydro-Massage: Healing Jets and Targeted Relief

    Hydrotherapy in hot tubs often incorporates the use of therapeutic jets. These jets can provide a customisation massage experience, targeting specific areas of the body. Whether it's soothing neck and shoulder combinations or lower back relief, hydro-massage jets can alleviate muscle tension and discomfort effectively. The rotation, pulsation, and direction of these jets can be adjusted to suit individual preferences and therapeutic needs.

     

    The Therapeutic Temperature Dance

    The Temperature Transition: From Hot to Cold

    Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects of hot and cold therapy, is the ability to transition between these temperature extremes. Our "Tranquillity" hot tubs are can be equipped with features that allow users to switch from warm water relaxation to cold plunge therapy with ease.

    Imagine enjoying a serene soak in your hot tub, the warm water melting away stress and tension. Then, with a few simple adjustments, you transform your oasis into a refreshing cold plunge tub. This temperature transition is swift, typically taking only a matter of hours. It's a testament to the versatility of these modern hot tubs, offering a diverse range of experiences within a single unit.

     

    Mental Well-Being: The Silent Healing Power

    Stress Reduction and Improved Sleep

    The benefits of hydrotherapy extend beyond the physical realm. Stress reduction is one of the most noticeable effects. Soaking in warm water helps relax tense muscles and alleviates stress, promoting a sense of calm and tranquillity. The warm water's soothing embrace can improve sleep quality, making it easier to transition into a more restful state. As stress melts away, the body can find the relaxation it needs to unwind fully.

     

    Cold Immersion: Invigorating the Mind

    Cold plunge therapy can awaken both the body and the mind. The shock of cold water followed by a warm soak creates a unique stress-relieving experience. This contrast therapy releases endorphins, providing a sense of exhilaration. The invigorating effects of cold immersion can increase mental alertness and improve focus, making it an excellent choice for those looking to jump-start their day with renewed energy.

     

    The Chilling Effect of Hydrotherapy Jets:

    When you set your plunge tub to a chilly 5 degrees, you're already in for a refreshing experience. But add in the hydrotherapy jets, and it takes on a whole new level of invigoration.

     

    Hydrotherapy Jets and Circulation

    The jets in your plunge tub aren't just there for show. They create a powerful flow of water that massages your body.

    This vigorous movement stimulates your circulation. Your blood starts flowing faster, carrying away heat from your skin's surface.

     

    The Brain's Perception

    Now, here's where it gets fascinating. Your brain perceives temperature based on various factors, and one of them is the rate of heat transfer from your skin.
    As the hydrotherapy jets increase circulation, they enhance the rate at which your body loses heat to the cold water.

     

    Enhanced Cooling Sensation

    So, even though the water might be a relatively moderate 5 degrees, your brain thinks it's even colder because of the rapid heat loss due to the jets.

    This creates a heightened cooling sensation, making your plunge tub experience feel colder than it actually is.

     

    Health Benefits

    Beyond the psychological sensation, this combination of cold water and hydrotherapy has its benefits. It's excellent for muscle recovery, reducing inflammation, and promoting overall well-being.

    The rapid circulation induced by the jets can help with muscle relaxation and relieve tension.

    In essence, your cold plunge tub with hydrotherapy jets isn't just about the numbers on the thermometer; it's about the holistic experience it offers. It's a thrilling adventure that not only refreshes your body but also invigorates your mind. So, embrace the chill, and let the hydrotherapy jets work their magic, even in the coldest of temperatures!

     

    Health Benefits Summarised

    Hot Tub Hydrotherapy 
    1. Stress Reduction: It's no secret that stress is a silent health menace in our lives. Studies have shown that regular hot tub sessions can reduce stress by a whopping 70%. The warm water relaxes tense muscles, triggering the release of endorphins – nature's stress relievers. Add to this the invigorating effect of powerful jets massaging your body, and you have a potent stress-busting combination.
    2. Improved Sleep Quality: Struggling with insomnia or restless nights? Hot tub therapy can be your natural remedy. Soaking in a hot tub raises your body temperature, and when you exit, your body rapidly cools down, signalling it's time to sleep. This transition leads to more restful and restorative slumber. The gentle caress of the jets on sore muscles contributes to a deeper, more peaceful sleep.
    3. Muscle Relief: Athletes and those with muscle soreness can rejoice in the therapeutic benefits of hot tubs. The buoyancy of the water reduces pressure on your body, while the warmth promotes blood flow, delivering vital nutrients to tired muscles and aiding in recovery. The adjustable, powerful jets target specific muscle groups, providing a tailored massage experience.
    4. Enhanced Circulation: The heat from hot tubs induces vasodilation, where blood vessels expand. This improved blood circulation contributes to better overall cardiovascular health, ensuring oxygen and nutrients are efficiently transported throughout your body. The rhythmic pulsations of the jets enhance this effect, stimulating circulation further.
    5. Pain Management: For those dealing with chronic pain conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia, hot tub therapy offers relief. The combination of buoyancy and heat eases joint strain, providing comfort and making pain management more manageable. The precision of the jets allows you to direct therapeutic massage to specific areas of discomfort.
    6. Lower Blood Pressure: Regular hot tub sessions can lead to a reduction in blood pressure. The warm water relaxes blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more freely, ultimately lessening the strain on your heart. The added benefit of hydrotherapy jets contributing to relaxation aids in this process.
    7. Enhanced Mental Well-being: Hot tub therapy isn't just about physical benefits. Immersing yourself in warm water induces relaxation, reduces anxiety, and can alleviate symptoms of depression. It's a sanctuary for your mental health. The combination of warm water and invigorating jets can lift your spirits and provide a sense of well-being.
    8. Cardiovascular Conditioning: Surprisingly, while you soak in a hot tub, your heart rate slightly increases, akin to light exercise. This gentle conditioning contributes to improved cardiovascular health over time. The hydrotherapy jets provide resistance, further enhancing the cardiovascular workout effect.

     

    These scientifically-backed benefits of hot tub therapy offer a comprehensive approach to relaxation and healing. The combination of warm water and powerful jets creates a synergistic effect that elevates the therapeutic potential of hot tubs. 

     

    Cold Plunge Tub Hydrotherapy

    Cold plunge therapy involves immersing your body in cold water, typically between 50-59°F (10-15°C). While it may initially seem intimidating, the rewards are well worth the initial shock. Cold plunge tubs offer a plethora of health benefits, supported by data and scientific findings:

    1. Invigoration: Cold plunges serve as a natural adrenaline rush. The shock of cold water instantly awakens your senses, providing an immediate energy boost and heightened mental alertness. Imagine the added benefit of jets in a cold plunge tub, creating a dynamic massage that intensifies the invigorating experience.
    2. Muscle Recovery: After strenuous physical activities, a cold plunge accelerates muscle recovery. The cold water reduces inflammation, alleviates muscle soreness, and helps you bounce back quickly. When combined with strategically placed jets, it's like a targeted therapy session for your muscles, promoting rapid rejuvenation.
    3. Enhanced Circulation: Cold immersion triggers vasoconstriction – the narrowing of blood vessels, followed by vasodilation – their expansion when you exit the cold water. This process exercises your circulatory system, improving cardiovascular health. Jets in a cold plunge tub can amplify this effect, delivering a refreshing and revitalising sensation.
    4. Stress Relief: The contrast between the cold water and your body's natural temperature releases endorphins, providing a natural stress-relief sensation. The addition of jets in a cold plunge tub enhances this effect, stimulating the production of 'feel-good' hormones.
    5. Mental Resilience: Cold plunges build mental fortitude. Over time, you'll become more resilient to stress and discomfort. The jets in a cold plunge tub create a dynamic experience, making the process more manageable as you adapt to the cold.
    6. Immune Boost: Cold immersion stimulates the production of white blood cells, bolstering your immune system. These cells play a crucial role in defending your body against infections and illnesses. The combination of cold water and invigorating jets can contribute to a robust immune response.
    7. Mood Elevation: Cold plunge therapy has been linked to mood elevation and a reduction in symptoms of depression. The exhilarating sensation of cold water, coupled with the rhythmic massage of jets, can provide a natural mood boost.
    8. Post-Workout Cool Down: Athletes often use cold plunge tubs as part of their post-workout routine. The cold water reduces muscle inflammation, helping prevent injuries and aiding in overall recovery. Jets in these tubs provide additional relief by targeting specific muscle groups.

     

    Cold plunge tub therapy, with its invigorating cold water and potential for hydro-massage, offers a revitalising experience that awakens the body and sharpens the mind. It's a transformative journey into the realm of contrast therapy, where the shock of cold immersion releases endorphins, enhances mental alertness, and provides a unique stress-relieving experience.

      

    Conclusion: A Holistic Approach to Well-Being

    Hot and cold hydrotherapy offers a holistic approach to well-being. By harnessing the unique properties of water, adjusting temperatures, embracing the healing power of hydro-massage, individuals can experience a myriad of physical and mental health benefits.

    2. Natural Characteristics of Wood: As wood is a natural material, the warranty does not cover the following aspects:
      1. Wood may develop cracks after assembly.
      2. Wood movement, which may lead to gaps in walls due to factors like lightning, hurricanes, or tornadoes, resulting in changes in the item's shape.
      3. The occurrence of mould on wood.
      4. Wooden details that include intact branches and do not compromise the item's stability.
      5. Consequences of extreme or unusual weather conditions, such as water seepage through the walls during exceptionally heavy rain, strong winds, or weather events like lightning, hurricanes, or tornadoes.
      6. Use of the item not in accordance with its intended purpose or malfunctions caused by non-compliance with the provided instructions.
    3. Alterations and Repairs: The warranty is not applicable if the items are disassembled, their components are replaced, or if the items are altered by entities other than Home Living Luxury. Additionally, if third parties have carried out repairs on the items.
    4. Normal Wear and Tear: Natural wear and tear of the materials used and the item itself are not covered by the warranty.
    5. Atmospheric Influences: Wood, being a natural construction material, can be affected by atmospheric conditions. Before processing, timber typically contains up to 18% residual moisture content, and changes in humidity due to different weather conditions (e.g., rain, freezing, cold, or heat) can impact the wood structure and may lead to the following effects:
      1. Cracking during the drying process, which is considered a natural occurrence and not covered by the warranty.
      2. Adaptation of wooden details to new conditions a few weeks after construction. This may necessitate adjustments to doors.
      3. Ultraviolet rays (solar rays) may cause changes in the colour of the wood.



    In summary, it's important to note that our warranty does not cover instances of misconstruction, misuse, normal wear and tear, and the effects of weather and atmospheric influences on wood. These exclusions are in place to provide clarity on the specific situations and conditions where we cannot be held liable under the warranty.

    Shipping

    We offer international shipping for all our hot and cold plunge tubs. Orders within the UK, Ireland, and Europe enjoy free shipping.

    However, for deliveries to the Scottish Highlands, Channel Islands or outside Europe, will require personalised shipping quotes. Please reach out to our support team for a customised shipping quote, and we'll respond within 24 hours.

    The entire process, from crafting to completed delivery, takes approximately 20-25 working days. After order confirmation, our skilled artisans begin constructing your tub, usually taking 15-20 business days. We then allocate an additional 5 days for secure delivery. While our goal is to deliver within 20-25 days, please note that certain circumstances, such as customisations or weather-related delays, may extend the timeframe up to 30 days. Throughout this process, we prioritise clear communication to keep you informed.

    If you are located in an area such as those listed above, or your location is notoriously difficult to access/deliver too, it may be in your best interest to reach out to our support team by emailing us at sales@homelivingluxury.com, or by calling us on +442034359402.

    By communicating clearly with us, we are able to offer you a better, more personalised service. This ensures that your order is delivered and received in the most methodical manner possible.

    Making Changes to Your Order

    We understand that sometimes changes may be necessary to meet your specific requirements. You have a window of opportunity to make changes to your order, but it's important to act promptly to avoid any additional charges. Order fabrication typically commences 5-7 days after your order placement, which is why the following conditions apply to facilitate any changes:


    • You can make changes to your order within 3 working days from the date of order placement without incurring any extra fees.
    • It may be possible to make changes up to 5 working days after placing your order, but after the initial 3 working days, a "late amendment fee" may apply along with any additional charges resulting from the modifications.
    • Please note that while we will do our absolute best to accommodate your requested changes, the final decision lies at the discretion of Home Living Luxury.

     

    Our dedicated support team is here to assist you in this process, providing project insights to help streamline the changes effectively. Please contact us as soon as possible if you require any amendments to your order.

        

    Pre-delivery Cancellations

    Building on the information provided above, it's crucial to emphasise that our hot tub / cold plunge tub fabrication typically commences 5-7 days after you place your order. Given this timeline, it becomes quite challenging for us to entertain pre-delivery order cancellations once your order is officially placed. Our tubs are crafted to your precise specifications, which significantly limits the opportunity for returns or order amendments. Therefore, we strongly advise careful consideration before finalising your order.

    If you ever find the need to make changes to your order, please contact us as soon as possible within the initial 3 working days from the date of order placement. During this timeframe, adjustments can be made without incurring additional fees. However, it's essential to clarify that the window for a full order cancellation is strictly 3 working days. If you choose to cancel your order within this period, a 5% cancellation fee will be retained by Home Living Luxury. For example, if your hot tub order is valued at £5,000 and you request a full refund within the 3 working day period, we will issue the refund, deducting a 5% cancellation fee (£250). This policy specifically applies to products designed and crafted to your unique specifications, which explains its precise nature.

    Please note that orders cannot be cancelled after the initial 3 full working days following the order placement. This policy is in place to ensure a streamlined and efficient process for all our valued customers.

        

    Returns for Damaged Deliveries

    Our returns policy accommodates orders that are received damaged by our courier. In such cases, please do not sign off on the delivery document and follow these steps:


    1. Refuse the delivery: If you happen to notice any damage to the product during the delivery process, please refuse to accept the delivery from our courier. This crucial step initiates the return process for damaged orders. The order will then be returned to the local depot, where further investigations and assessments will be conducted to address the issue. This helps ensure that any damage is properly documented and addressed in a timely manner.
    2. Document the damage: After refusing the delivery, it's crucial to thoroughly document the damage. Take clear and detailed photographs of both the damaged packaging and the product itself. These photos should offer a comprehensive view of the extent of the damage. This documentation will be invaluable in processing your repairs, replacement, or refund, and ensuring a swift resolution to the issue.
    3. Contact us immediately: Reach out to our support team within 24 hours of the delivery refusal. Provide us with the photos and a description of the damage, and we will initiate the return process.



    At Home Living Luxury, your satisfaction is our top priority, and we want to ensure your hot / cold plunge tub arrives in perfect condition. While we take extreme care in the packaging and transportation of our tubs to prevent any issues, we understand that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes occur. In the rare event that you notice any damage during the delivery process, our return policy is designed to protect you, our valued customer.

    Once a ticket has been raised, we will conduct thorough investigations and assessments to address the issue. This helps ensure that any damage is properly documented and resolved in a timely manner.

    In the unfortunate event that a resolution cannot be reached through repairs or replacement, we offer a full refund. Please note that in such cases, the 5% cancellation fee will not apply, ensuring you are compensated fairly.

       

    Post-Delivery Returns

    At Home Living Luxury, we place paramount importance on delivering high-quality Finnish hot/cold tubs crafted to your exact specifications. While we strive to ensure that your order arrives in pristine condition, we recognise that there may be concerns or issues that arise post-delivery. It's essential to clarify our approach to post-delivery returns:


    • Refunds for Non-Damaged Products: The bespoke nature of custom build orders means that we cannot provide refunds for products that have not been damaged during the delivery process. Each tub is designed to meet your unique needs, making it challenging to resell them to another customer.
    • Installation and Final Location: Once your order has been received successfully, and there is no damage reported, we regret to inform you that we cannot accept refunds under any circumstances. This policy is in line with the custom nature of our products.



    While we cannot offer refunds for non-damaged products, our dedicated support team is here to assist you with any concerns or inquiries you may have. We are committed to ensuring your experience with our glamping pods is as positive as possible.
