This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

As suggested by *_Drew~.

The Bubble-Up "SoakingZone" Hot Tub in the usual AL Wood, LACK and MALM colours. Once again I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news...the lattice is not recolourable. The good news...CrabofDoom has done a Default above-ground HotTub minus Lattice and removed the lattice completely.

More good the link to the default hot tub is broken CrabofDoom has generously given me permission to include the file with my recolours. (I have uploaded it in a separate zip file and once the link is fixed I will be removing this file)

I have a ton of broken links, apparently, and need to take a night (maybe a weekend) to make a concentrated effort of getting the zips put on SimsFileShare and fixing all the links here and on Dreamwidth. So, if you have a copy to include, that would be great!

My screenshots show the hot tub in game with and without the default, if you are wondering how I managed to take the screenshot with and without the default, I cloned the hot tub.

Oh, and these recolours work with the original and the default hot tub. They are base game compatible, no EP's or SP's required!

Found: Buy Mode > Plumbing > Hot Tubs. Price: §6,500.

Files have been compressed and checked in game. Colour charts are included in the zip files.

*_Drew~ for suggesting these recolours
amythestfenix for the extra wood colours and for allowing me to use them.
Many thanks and a hug to CrabofDoom for the default hot tub and for allowing me to include the file with my recolours.

It's a shame the lattice couldn't be recolored on them (or so it looks like that from your screenshots.) ANYWAY... Wonderful upload as always and thank you!
