What concrete thickness to support therapy pool

We're having a therapy pool installed in our garage, the concrete is 4" thickness, the pool is 14ft by 8ft by 3.5ft deep (roughly 10 tonnes of water when filled). The pool is basically a liner supported by steel frame sides - does this sound ok? I need to anchor the sides into the floor using 3...

I'm happy that I can get someone to do (and more importantly certify, it's a conversion and building regs are involved) the outside electrics which is probably quite straightforward but what worries me now is the earthing in the room.

Outside placement of electrics

I am having a hydrotherapy pool installed and for safety would prefer that the electrics are installed outside of the room in which it will sit. My ideal location is to place them (ie heater, filter and pump unit) in a secure weatherproof box outside the house and have it connected to the consumer u...
