Electricity Consumption in a British Hot Tub

Having your own personal hot tub is the ideal way to relax and soothe sore muscles; however, before purchasing one, many people want to know a hot tub's kWh usage in the UK, and more importantly, how much it costs to run a hot tub. This is especially useful information at a time when energy prices are skyrocketing.

The truth is that hot tub electricity consumption varies depending on a number of factors that we will discuss; however, the superior insulation and energy efficiency of our hot tubs and swim spas is unmatched. one of the numerous advantages of a Hydropool

We do, however, want to provide the best possible answer to this critical question. We will estimate hot tub kWh usage in the UK and convert it to how much it costs to run a hot tub.

Read on to learn how much electricity a hot tub should use, as well as how to choose an energy-efficient model to avoid a hefty utility bill.

How Much kWh Does a Hot Tub Use Per Day in the UK

While you're here, did you know we're having an end-of-season sale? On in-stock hot tubs and swim spas, you can save up to £3000. Download a brochure to learn more about our products.

The short answer is probably around three. 5-6 kWh per day under normal conditions Obviously, the amount of kWh a hot tub uses each day is determined by a variety of factors, including frequency of use, water temperature, air temperature, hot tub insulation, and others. You can learn more about the most popular Here you can find energy-efficient hot tubs in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

There are things that can reduce your daily kWh usage, and while there are ways to reduce it through your usage, purchasing your hot tub saves you a lot of money in the long run. The air temperature in the United Kingdom does not get very cold very often. Even in the winter, our climate is significantly warmer than that of Canada, where Hydropool spas were designed for energy efficiency.

Because our spas were designed to be usable during Canadian winters when temperatures drop below 20 degrees Celsius, keeping a Hydropool spa warm in the UK is simple.


Costs of Heating a Hot Tub

People who want to buy a hot tub or a swim spa usually have two main questions.

The first concerns their operating costs, while the second concerns their maintenance requirements.

Continue reading to learn more about how much a hot tub costs to run (and why Hydropool spas are designed to be the most energy-efficient in the world), or click here to learn about Hydropool maintenance requirements.

The total cost of hot tub usage is determined by several factors, including your hot tub model, water temperature, unit price per kilowatt-hour, and how frequently you use your hot tub, to name a few. According to unbiased data from WhatSpa, you should budget between £1 and £1. 30 per day to run an energy-efficient hot tub on a 28p per kWh tariff (April 2022)

It is difficult to give exact costs because there are many factors that influence the cost of running a hot tub, so we say that you should expect the daily costs to be on the higher end of the range. With very frequent usage, the costs rise even further.

Even with heavy usage, that's still less expensive than your daily cup of coffee.

Be aware that, while a low-cost hot tub may appear appealing at first, it will almost always cost more in the long run. According to WhatSpa, low-quality models with poor insulation can easily multiply your hot tub's energy consumption by 5 or 6 times.

How to Conserve Money

There are some things you can do to save money when purchasing a hot tub. Obviously, there will always be a cost, but the numerous health and lifestyle benefits that a hot tub provides make it all worthwhile.

Selecting an Energy-Efficient Hot Tub

The majority of your energy savings will be realized when you purchase your hot tub. Of course, some bias is to be expected here, but Hydropool spas are designed to be the most energy-efficient in the world.

We've been making hot tubs for over 40 years, starting in Canada, where winters can be brutal. As hot tubs needed to be profitable during these months, one of Hydropool's original selling points was energy efficiency, which, along with superior hydrotherapy, has since become part of the core Hydropool ethos. From a non-Hydropool source, a quick Google search will yield more information about Hydropool's energy efficiency.

There are four key elements of Hydropool's Hydrowise Thermal Technology that can be discussed simply:

  • Hydrowise Heat Shield Cover - This is the cover that comes with our spas. It is designed to keep the heat in and the cold out, and we think it does a good job of it.
  • Evergreen Low Amperage Pump - Our pumps produce high flow rates while consuming little energy. As a result, our filtration system is 25-32% more efficient than the competition's.
  • Insulated Thermal Shield Blanket Inspired by Nasa - This technology is identical to that used by Nasa to launch astronauts into space. The heat emitted by the spa is reflected back into the heat-absorbing pipes, where it is used to directly heat the water. Because hydropool insulation is so effective, we always recommend leaving your hot tub on to keep the water warm rather than turning it off, as heating the water back up requires significantly more energy.
  • Programmable Controls - Your touchpad has many settings to keep your spa at the proper temperature at all times. When it is not in use, you can switch it to energy-saving mode. You can also control these settings on your smartphone with the Gecko In.Touch app, giving you complete control over your energy consumption even when you are not at your spa.


Always wear the cover.

As they say, heat rises. Heat can escape from the top of the spa, so keeping your cover on when not in use will keep the heat trapped inside and save the system from having to constantly heat the water to keep it at temperature. You want a well-made, durable, and lockable cover with a tapered design and insulation baffles around the fold. Surprisingly, Hydropool spas come with one.

Use Energy Saving Modes

A good hot tub should have customisation settings that allow you to lower the water temperature. Maintain your spa at a slightly cooler temperature than you would when using it. The closer this temperature is to the outside air temperature, the less energy will be required to maintain it at the desired temperature.

Consider the Volume of Water.

Another consideration is the volume of water in your hot tub. A typical hot tub holds about 250 gallons of water, but larger models can hold up to 500 gallons. The more water in your hot tub, the more electricity you'll need to keep it warm.

What to Look for to Reduce Hot Tub kWh Consumption

If you're looking for a hot tub and want to make sure you get an energy-efficient model, here are the top features to look for.

Pumps that work efficiently

When compared to other pumps, an energy-efficient pump can reduce your hot tub's energy consumption by up to 32%. Look for a pump that has the highest flow rate while using the least amount of energy.

CEC Accredited

Choose a CEC-certified model for the highest level of energy efficiency in your hot tub. Although we are not in the United States, the California Energy Commission has established a strict guideline that is only awarded to hot tubs that meet the highest energy efficiency standards. Just so you know, hydropool spas are CEC certified.

Cut chemical use and draining frequency by half.

Did you know that, in addition to being designed for superior energy efficiency, Hydropool spas' signature self-cleaning range is the smartest, safest, easiest, and most efficient way of keeping your spa clean and your water clear?

The most difficult aspect of owning a spa is undoubtedly maintaining it, but with a Hydropool signature self-cleaning hot tub or swim spa, you can reduce chemical usage by 50% while also reducing the amount you have to drain and fill it by 50%.

If you don't want to spend your weekends cleaning your hot tub, a Hydropool self-cleaning hot tub may be ideal.
