Hot Tubs: Everything You Need To Know

Hot tubs are somewhat a luxury item for any household. 

They offer the perfect place to relax alone, spend time with the family on an evening, or unite friends and entertain on a weekend. Moreover, in recent years, hot tubs have increased in popularity with the warmer weather and people spending more time at home.

However, hot tubs can be costly, especially if you don’t carry out ample research. Our article discusses everything you need to know, as well as offering some hints and tips on keeping costs down. 

Purchasing Hot Tubs

A hot tub can be a major investment from the off. Moreover, a brand new tub can range from around £3,000 to upwards of £10,000. The more hi-tech elements the hot tub has, the more it will cost. For example, powered jets or built-in sanitation can increase the price significantly. Furthermore, efficient insulation and high-quality cladding can be pricey too.

Maintaining Them

One of the most costly things about hot tubs is their maintenance. Tools and consumables account for their safety and longevity. Moreover, it is important that you have a spae filter to keep the tub in operation when cleaning it. Cleaning brushes will also come in handy.

Pool chlorine granules are essential, alongside pH adjusters and pool test strips. Defoamers and sequestering agents can also remove minerals to keep the water clear. Hence, over time, these products can cost hundreds of pounds. 

Running A Tub

If your hot tub is powered by electricity, you may see a rise in your electricity bill. Moreover, metered water bills can become more expensive due to regular refills. 

Reducing Costs

One of the easiest and most effective ways of bringing the cost of your hot tub down is to utilise a cover. It provides insulation and results in less energy usage and heat loss. Moreover, the cover will help keep the water clean, meaning less maintenance is required. Furthermore, using a lower temperature can also help to keep your bills down!
