Here in Europe, we all share many similarities, that are common to all of us, no matter what country we live in. However, electrical systems do not always match this criterion. Due to this fact, when purchasing electrical appliances from another country it is important to keep an eye out for the technical information and make sure that the appliances will be well suited for ones’ households’ specific electrical capabilities.

An important thing to note is, when purchasing a hot tub with an electric heater, we install a corresponding fuse box which houses not only the components necessary for powering the electric heater but additional sockets for all other electric appliances. This means that you will only need to connect the fuse box to your households’ electrical system, and everything will work off of that. No additional sockets will be required.

Without an electric heater, all the appliances need to be connected to a regular socket. That being said, an extension cord with multiple sockets can be used and easily fit all the power plugs.
