Thus, the threshold of the bathroom should be at least 4-6 cm, it is necessary that in case of overflow of bath water was in the room and did not go further in the house. First, run plumbing and electrical to the installation of hydro-massage. Then install the filters in the pipes, as the water from the tap is not very clean, and the jets in the bathtub, the massager have an increased sensitivity to impurities contained in the water. It is better if you install a multi-stage water filtration system, this will help keep your bath in pristine condition for a long time. Before installing the bath ensure that your floors are perfectly waterproofed and do not have the slightest of cracks, and all the tile seams carefully iced, and treated water-repellent composition.

Here is an example that two people were in the tub, a hole under the bath should have a depth of not less than 50 cm, and the area occupied by the bathroom, will be not less than 3 m2. With the installation of baths is necessary to observe not only the parameters relating to the depth of sewage and other openings, but also the parameters relative to the other objects in the room.

It is needed in order to monitor the pressure change in the pipes. The optimum pressure for hydro-massage – 3,5–4 bar, but the pipes don’t always have that kind of pressure. Therefore, in order not to spoil the Jacuzzi, it is necessary to track the level of pressure in the pipes with reducer.
Next, you need to check the internal hoses hydromassage systems and overflow. Unfortunately, the store to test these systems impossible. All hoses must be in place and properly secured. If they’re even slightly loose, tighten them with the necessary tools.
