    We are alright where we are, the neighbours you can see in the image can really only see the hot tub from the windows pictured, but then they can only see us if we are in the other end of the hot tub as the lid blocks a lot. Other than that, no one else can see.

    That’s a perfect reason to own one and I’m just jealous that’s all. I would love to own a hot tub. Just think of the relaxing nights under the stars. :p

    might be worth building a canopy that can be retracted of some sort.

    Hot tubs, disgusting things. Nothing but fonts of bacteria and virus's.
    Basically a human soup.

    Not too bad if it's a private one with restricted use and it's properly maintained but otherwise just bleurgh.

    Yea I'm on top of the maintenance, it also has a fresh water system that generates chlorine from the salt water.

    Make sure you maintain the lid properly
    I had a horrible folliculis from one a few years ago, pseudomonas, also known as 'hot tub folliculitis'

    After having it, I've diagnosed about 5 or 6 patients with it.
    They think I'm a wizard when I look at their rash and ask 'when did you go in the hot tub?'

    What's your advise on maintaining the lid?

    They are also handy if you have a dog who isn't keen on going in the bath. If they see the whole family in one they will be more inclined to jump in . Sorted one clean dog.

    Bleach or appropriately safe cleaner around all the seams and joins of the fabric. The steam condensing on the lid, the seam cracks and warmth provides perfect conditions for the bacteria.

    For me “Hot tubs” are as chavvy as a white leather reclining sofa ;)

    PBT key caps arrived. 95% of the keys match, it's a tricky layout. I have another set coming that may be better.

    Custom cable is on order with hipster aviation connector.

    I take it you have a good hand on the water chemistry? I'm assuming it uses cartridge filters? Do not neglect changing them!
