Here the WhatSpa? When we talk about hot tub running costs there are three main factors to take into account once your fabulous new hot tub has been installed taking pride of place in your garden:. Without getting too technical, this is a pretty difficult cost to quantify, as it will depend on the ambient average outside temperature, how often you use your hot tub, for how long each time, how much of that time is with the jets on, the water temperature that you prefer and finally your electricity tariff. We can however make some assumptions based upon an average usage pattern of 30 to 45 minutes use, 3 or 4 times per week which is about average for most hot tub owners. However not all spas are built to the most efficient energy standards. If you chance your arm on a cheap grey import this could increase five or six fold as they are simply not built to retain heat and maintain water temperature efficiently.

I know nothing about electrical work so bear with me I am getting a hot tub that requires a v power supply or around that voltage. The electrician I called said that he would have to run this power supply directly from my breaker box in my garage hooked up through the wall from the side of the house and run the wire around the parameter of the house to the back, then under my deck to a spot 20 to 30ft from the back of the house. I am guessing 75ft of wire at most. Then I need it hooked up to my hot tub.
