Have you ever wondered how much it can cost to power a hot tub?
While the old saying is that you can power a hot tub for less than £1 a day, we wanted to put a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub to the test and find out how much it can really cost to power one of these advanced spas.
In this article, you can find out what we discovered and see exactly how much it can cost to run a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub with the SmartTub™ System.
Monthly Operating Costs with the SmartTub™ System
We wanted to put the Jacuzzi® SmartTub™ System to the test and discover just how much money it would cost to operate a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub with the system installed.
Over the course of nine months, we tracked and studied the energy consumption of the J-575™ outdoor hot tub located in an open garden setting.
We found that with OVO Energy on a 14.7p/kWh, that the monthly operational costs were £48.33 in December 2019 and £26.75 in July 2019.
Over the nine months, we calculated an average monthly cost of £34.92. The parameters were set to 10h filtration per day, auto heating, and frequent filtration, with an average use of two to three times per week.
We were able to monitor and track our findings with help from the SmartTub™ System. The system makes it easy to see how much energy the hot tub is using and then adjust the settings to help keep our monthly energy costs low and affordable.
What is the SmartTub™ System?
The SmartTub™ System allows you to control your Jacuzzi® Hot Tub with the touch of a button. This advanced system connects to an app on your smartphone or tablet, connecting to the hot tub via a combination of WiFi, cellular data, and/or Bluetooth technology.
Once connected, you can:
- Connect with your local hot tub dealership
- Browse tips and how-to videos
- Access helpful resources
- View energy usage estimates
- View and adjust settings
- Access support
- Get notified if there is a power outage
From your device, you can adjust the temperature, turn the jets on or off, or update the settings. The SmartTub™ System will even alert you if service is required and connect you with your local hot tub dealership to get the work done right.
The SmartTub™ System will be available in the UK as of April 2020 on J-400™ and J-500™ models as a standard feature.
