Hot Tub FAQs
What kind of surface does a hot tub need to be placed on?
A flat and level concrete pad is ideal. Reinforced wooden decks are a common choice. Other options would be stone pavers or treated 4″ x 4″ and gravel.
What kind of maintenance is needed with a hot tub?
The weekly water care takes about 5 minutes a week. Caring for the filters takes about 15 minutes a month. Changing the water happens 2-3 times per year.
What are the electrical requirements?
Hot tubs are available in both 120 and 220 volts. Most common are the 220-volt spas. Family-sized spas usually run on a 50-amp, 220-volt ground fault breaker.
How much does it cost for chemicals and electricity to run a hot tub?
Although there are many factors that go into the cost, general cost would be $30 – $40 a month on average.
What chemicals are used in a personal hot tub?
Health Canada dictates that bromine or chlorine be used as the sanitizer for hot tubs. Chemicals to adjust the PH (acidity) of the water are also used. Stain and scale control is also used.
Would you recommend a salt water system?
No, we don’t recommend salt-water systems. While salt water is used successfully in commercial settings, it can cause problems with personal hot tubs. With salt water systems, instead of adding bromine to the water, you are adding salt and thereby making bromine. The problem is until such time as the salt you have added to the tub turns into bromine, it is very corrosive and can harm all of the equipment running your hot tub.
