    In most cities and counties, permits will be required for the installation of electrical circuits or the construction of exteriorsurfaces (decks and gazebos). In addition, some communities have adopted residential barrier codes which mayrequire fencing and/or self-closing gates on the property to prevent unsupervised access to a pool (or spa) by childrenunder 5 years of age. Your Hot Spring Spa is equipped with a locking cover that meets the ASTM F1346-91 Standard forSafety Covers and as a result, is usually exempt from most barrier requirements. As a general practice, your local BuildingDepartment will inform you of any applicable barrier requirements at the time a permit is obtained for the installation of anelectrical circuit. Your Hot Spring Spa Dealer can provide information on which permits may be required.

    Congratulations on your decision to enjoy the finest spa available...Welcome to the growing family of Hot Spring Spa owners.
