How much will a hot tub cost to run ?

Less than 90 pence per day

What electric supply is required?

They range from 13Amp to 40Amp depending on the model pool.

Can i install the electrical supply?

No. A registered electrician will need to visit and install a circuit breaker (fuse) in your electrical consumer unit and run a cable to near your pool. A waterproof isolator switch will need to be installed about 2 metres away from your spa. Don’t worry about this because it is no more complex or expensive than installing an outdoor water feature i.e. fountain pump.

Do i need to have the water connected all the time?

No. Just fill from a garden hose and top up as required. We recommend changing the water every 3 months or sooner as you like.

Can i use the hot tub straight after applying the first dose of chemicals ?

No. You must wait for 8-12 hrs after first applying the chlorine. It will need this time to heat–up from cold anyway.

What maintenance is required & how long does it take ?

About 20 minutes a week to check water condition and add chemicals as required. Half an hour a month to clean the filter, 2 hours every 3 months to empty and refill the spa.
