Hot Tub FAQs

The larger the hot tub, the more power and electrical current that is needed. When you go up to three or four pumps, you may be looking at a 40-amp feed. There is no such thing as a 32-amp hot tub.

32 amps is the amount of power that is required to run a standard hot tub that will have a heater and a couple of pumps running simultaneously. With a 32 amp, you could use it for three or four hours and your heater won’t turn off and the temperature will remain the same.

We find that this is one of the most common hot tub FAQs. The answer is different for each customer depending on who will be using it – a couple, family, or friends. Even if there will only be two people using the hot tub, different options of seats will allow you to soothe different muscles.

You may also require a greater number of loungers rather than seats. We have various hot tubs by size, whether you’re in the market for 3 person hot tubs, 6 person hot tubs all the way up to 8 person hot tubs.

There are so many hot tub features to pick from including LEDs lights, jets, music systems, water fountains, downward LED lights, automatic chemicals.

Lights will help to lift your mood and music will help entertain your guests. Automatic dosing will make things easier, so you don’t have to add your chemicals in each night.  We recommend choosing the most important features for you.
