Salt water has been found to cause premature component failure due to its corrosive properties. It will void the manufacturer's warranty if installed.
There is not a cord included, so most often a hard wire is performed by an electrician. A cord could be added by an electrician, however electrician would need to advise if it meets local building codes.
Curbside delivery is included with the purchase of this hot tub. Any other services such as backyard placement and electrical connection will need to be scheduled with a local contractor. Typically moving companies or home improvement teams can make the move. Electrical connection may require an electrician if a home improvement team is not properly staffed.
The equipment access side is the same as the side with the skimmer / filter. The primary pump, pack, and blower unit are are located here.
Unfortunately this model hot tub does not have a stereo system included. There are many options for floating or marine grade BT speakers on the market today if music is a concern while in the hot tub.
This spa has perimeter insulation which traps the heat within the cabinet and allows service access if need be. Additional insulation can be added after market is the owner chooses to add as long as not around the pumps. These spas are sold into northern cold climates for year round use. The cover is extra thick which significantly improves heat retention.
It appears to be a listing issue as this spa does not include a BT stereo. The discrepancy will be corrected shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sorry but regional and local contractors are something we are not able to assist with.
