Yep, Saturday night :-)

Couldnt think of where to get one, and I know this is probably the most random place to ask, but why not? ;-)

I just want to hire a spa (Maybe for 5 people) for saturday night.

Any idea how much we're looking at price-wise and where I can get it from??

Cheers

You want to go to one you mean not one come to you?

ring up your local motels, who have a spa and see if they hire them out, cost ya and you would have limited time, but we do that here.

or do you have swimming places up there? indoors ones i mean? heated aquatic centres?

just a thought,

Yeah, I should have mentioned that I want one that I can pick up, take back and put on my mates deck for the night... Ive seen them advertised in the TV Guide ages back!

There's heaps for underground pool halls and Bar's, a few other things like kids parties...... Under Spa's they're keen to sell me a spa, but I dont want to buy one???


Chill.

Oh boy!

How big is this spa going to be (volume = tonnes = additional dead load),
how many people will it fit (average body weight x No = live load),
how many people could potentially cram onto the deck (average body weight x No = live load)

Giving consideration that the deck will have a design load of 2.0kPa (above what the atmosphere is already exerting) you'd better get you slide rule out.

If you really meant patio, terrace or the deck is a couple of hundred mm off the ground, please ignore the above and have a great time ;)

Cheers Murray ;P

You know,the weekly HP of a spa pool is less then the cost of 2 pizzas.....Might as well just buy one.....

If you're prepared to donate the cost of less than two pizza's a week then sure :-)

Murray P:
Yes, Patio, brick tiled.... Held close to 90 people before, so it'll survive ;-)

Don't think that you'll be able to hire a spa at all, as far as I am aware no-one is in that business.
I did ask a while back why not - Transportation is an issue, then the loading and unloading, up to 6 people can be required to move a decent sized pool around. It also takes 24 hours for the pool to heat up to operating temperature, thats after 2-3 hours filling it and a another few hours to drain it at the end.

Now as to regards Saturday night, I've got a spa that has held up to 8 persons at once... and good music (7000 MP'3) If 5 outta the six are female and only bring their bikini bottoms you can use my pool :) but i'm not bringing it anywhere.

Well, I plan on testing the load of the deck, lets put it that way ;-)

So nobody does spa's :-(

6 People to move one?

since when? our spa seats about 5 0r 6 people, dont know really havent tried to see how many actually fit, dont have time. possibly a cow could fit in it?


was moved on site by 2 people,and one was HWMO, not sure how long it took to fill not long, hour maybe?
takes a couple of hours- half day to heat, less if you put in hot water, ours is on auto so hot all the time.
our spa fitted on the back of an average flat deck ute, easy to move easy to use.

no idea if any one does this for a living, hiring out spa's ........

Transportation isnt an issue, Ive got a truck-driving mate who's coming and prepared to help... 6 guys is no issue, there'll be a lot more there on Sat night.

I understand it'll take a while to heat, hence wanting it tomororw so it'll heat etc.


Hmm.......

Can't you get the beer delivered in kegs, or a mini-tanker. It's likely to become contaminated if it's in a pool. I suppose the recycling will make it go further. ;-)

Graham, if you lived in Auckland, I'd get you and your kegs around tomorrow :D

Keep in mind that South Islanders flavor their beer with fish eggs and vinegar.....
