    Re: how much to run a hot tub in the winter

    Lots of variables... Insulation/cover/temperature.....

    I noticed very little difference in my bill when I put mine in last year, pretty sure my water trough for the horses eats up a lot more juice than my hot tub...

    I would guess my hot tub costs me about $60/month in power and chemicals.... now the new spa pack was a kick in the nards at $1150

    But after a day of sledding the cost is irelevant and soooooo worth it...

    Mines an older one (2000-ish), but seems to be very well insulated, when I had a malfunction last year after 3 days down in -15 to -25 she only dropped down to 73 degrees

    Just in power about $25-30. Chemicals not sure. I don't believe it is $60 per month for everything. If you have an ozonator it will reduce the chemical usage. It also depends how much you use it.

    Re: how much to run a hot tub in the winter

    mine is about 3 years old and from my last bill comparison I figured ours was between $30-35/month. Like rubirose suggested buy the ozonator and you wont have to worry about chemicals. We use zero chemicals. Some put a small shot of shock every two weeks but I personally find it un-necessary

    We have a 740 Beachcomber for last 10yrs I estimate it less than a case of beer/month in power. Chemical costs me less than 50 bucks a year. Couldnt keep up with all the recommended beach combers chemicals and use my own blend now and waters never been better.

    Re: how much to run a hot tub in the winter

    I have a old beachcomber and used spray can insulation everywhere I could spay it and a layer of 2" blue steroform under it and a 4" thick lid and the heat from the motor in the summer makes it to hot to use ' had to open the motor/pump box up for cooling ' $50-$60 a month all in sounds about right

    Re: how much to run a hot tub in the winter

    People who buy a hot tube are not to concerned about power usage in the first place, i bet 10% of them would know how much they are paying per kwh..... it is up to 10.19 cents, of coarse if you could keep it to the 6.8 cents first tier..which you won't, the bill would be way cheaper (BC prices). Let just say you were from alberta and you used 750 kw extra in the winter months and it was 9.5 cents a kwh.
