Hot Tub

How much does a hot tub cost to run?

Hot tubs, hydrotherapy pools and swim spas are commonly used to help aid recovery from a range of injuries and muscle issues, which impair mobility and movement.

Often the only solution is for people to hire a private medical practitioner for a hydrotherapy sessions which can cost up to £100 per session. With continuous need for these sessions, the expense quickly accumulates, resulting in high, unexpected medical bills.

We have the solution! Invest in your own hydrotherapy hot tub and start experiencing the extensive range of benefits regular hot tub use has, without leaving your home and whenever you would like

What are the Costs of Owning Your Own Pool

The costs of owning your own hot tub are broken down into two main factors:

  1. The purchasing cost. This is the cost of the purchase and the installation
  2. The running cost. This refers to how much your hot tub costs to run on a daily basis

Factors that Affect the Purchase Cost

Our Hydropool hot tub ranges are designed and manufactured using the highest quality materials and technology to ensure they are the perfect hot tub for you, and your family. Furthermore our hot tubs included customisable wellness programs which can target particular areas of your body that you would like to focus on and relieve tension. We strive to pairing you with your perfect hot tub, that will be able to enhance your wellbeing, regardless of if you are having painful headaches or need a sports recovery program. We firmly believe in the phrase, buy once, buy correctly. Therefore whilst our hot tubs might be on the more expensive end initially, with the correct maintenance they can last for the many years ahead, and are under warranty (how many years). This means that you will not need to replace your hot tub in a couple of years, unlike many cheaper and inferior quality brands.


As a general rule the larger a hot tub, the more seats it has. This generally means larger hot tubs are more expensive to purchase.


Our hot tubs include many exclusive features, such as self cleaning technology, customised wellness programs to target specific muscles and body parts, and zone therapy. Typically hot tubs which include more jets, seats and loungers are more expensive.


Part of the cost of our Hydropool hot tubs is from using premium materials and technology. This is beneficial because although the purchase cost is higher as a result of using the highest quality resources, the running costs are therefore reduced dramatically through the use of highly efficient technology and durable materials which do not need regular replacement.

Durability of a Hot Tub

Our Hot Tubs are well-designed and constructed from durable materials and you can expect that with good care and regular maintenance, your hydrotherapy pool will last 20 years or more.

Other Factors which affect the cost of running a hot tub

How You Use Your Hydrotherapy Pool

Typically, the more you use your hot tub the more energy you will use. However, it is important to know when to use your hot tub. Winter use, when the ambient temperature is lower, takes more energy to heat the water than in the Summer months when the temperature is higher.

A hydrotherapy pool exposed to the wind also forces it to use more energy to maintain water temperature. Careful positioning of your Hot Tub and the use and construction of wind barriers can reduce exposure and reduce energy cost.

Buy once, buy correctly.

What makes our Hydropool hot tubs the most energy efficient hot tubs?

The superb energy efficiency of our hot tubs is broken down into 4 aspects: the filtration and cleaning system, the hard cover, the insulated thermal shield blanket, and the Ecoheat Exchange technology. These innovative factors combined make our hot tubs the most energy efficient in the world.

Energy efficiency filtration

Our Hydropool hot tubs filters and cleans 100% of the water in only 15 minutes. Other brands take 3-4 hours to filter the same volume of water! This means with out Hydropool hot tubs the entire body of water is filtered 96 times per day. This dramatically extends the life of your hot tub water, resulting in your hot tub water needing to be changed less often. This makes it the most energy efficient filtration system in the world. In addition our Low Amperage Evergreen Pumps are designed as a high low, low energy pump engineered to produce high flow rates with low energy consumption. This mean our Hydropool filtration pump is 26% more efficient than other hot tub brands!

Hydrowise Heat Shield Hardcover

Our covers are designed using NASA inspired technology and are built for the extremely cold Canadian winters were temperatures consistently are between -5⁰C and -5⁰C. The Heavy Duty tapered locking safety hardcover has an insulated baffle in the fold area that locks in the heat and keeps the cold out. Therefore our hard covers are a great way to insulate your hot tub, and lower your hot tub energy consumption, by minimising the amount of heat escaping from your hot.

Insulated Thermal Shield Blanket

Our Hydropool hot tubs have been cleverly designed to maximise insulation in all areas. Another way our hot tubs increase their energy efficiency is through their Triple Thermal Shield Technology on the pipes, cabinet and floor. Through the reflective foil on the hot tub sides heat is reflected back into the hot tub. In addition the black side on the outside of the pipes is designed to absorb heat, to ensure that less heat energy is wasted.

Ecoheat Exchange Technology

Each pump creates 1.5kW of waste heat and our Double Thermal Shield blanket reflects that heat back into the hot tub cavity. HydroWise Thermal vents maximise energy efficiency for any season and any climate. All of the technology has been designed to exceed California Regulations, which are some of the strictest regulations in the World. All Hydropool products are TUV and CE certified. Our Hydropool products are of the highest standard. Hydropool is ranked one of the top in the world for “stand-by” wattage and energy efficiency, and one of the first to be approved under the strict State of California Guidelines. We wholeheartedly believe that a durable, high efficiency hot tub is a better investment than a cheaper, less suitable one, because it is designed to last longer, and be more inexpensive to run day-to-day. Our hot tubs are designed to last for over 15 years with the correct maintenance. We strongly believe in buy once, buy correctly.
