Discuss Go Plus Inflatable Hot Tub Recall in the Electrical News - Electricians News area at ElectriciansForums.net

The Go Plus hot tub is being recalled because you could get electrocuted taking a dip, according to press releases from the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI).

An Amazon spokesperson said: "Safety is a top priority at Amazon.


"We require all products offered in our store to comply with applicable laws and regulations and have developed industry-leading tools to prevent unsafe or non-compliant products from being listed in our stores."

It was originally available on Amazon Marketplace but has since been removed from sale.

The relevant official UK Trading Standards article is here (type 'hot tub' into the search bar or alert no 2108-0216) https://www.tradingstandards.uk/consumers/product-recalls-and-safety-notices

Apparently lack of internal earthing connections and insulation failure due to water ingress has resulted in it being classed as a 'serious risk of electric shock' to the user. The water becomes energised to supply voltage and the user suffers a shock upon contact with any object in the vicinity at ground potential.

For the two days a year you'd be in one it's not worth the risk. Even legit, they're going to degrade quick as you're moving them in and out of storage annually.

Get a proper one or stop pretending lol
