How soon could I get my hot tub delivered?

At our store, we currently stock a variety of hot tubs in different sizes and configurations. If you find something in our inventory that you like, we can usually have it delivered and ready for use within approximately 2 weeks. We will take care of the placement of the hot tub, but you are responsible for coordinating the electrical hookup and providing an appropriate base for the hot tub.

For those customers who prefer a full-service experience, we also offer general contractor services for the project, which includes handling both the electrical portion and the base preparation. This means that we can take care of all aspects of the installation, from arranging the electrical hookup and ensuring that it is done safely and efficiently, to preparing the base and ensuring that it is level and stable for the hot tub.

Do you sell salt water hot tubs?

Yes, we sell salt water compatible hot tubs. Here’s a little more information about salt water systems.

A salt water system is a type of water filtration and sanitation system that can be added to many hot tubs. It works by using electrolysis to produce chlorine from salt, which is then used to sanitize the water in the hot tub. This system can be an alternative to traditional methods of water treatment, such as using chlorine tablets or bromine.

There are several potential benefits to using a salt water system in a hot tub. One advantage is that it can be less harsh on the skin and eyes than traditional chlorine-based sanitizers. It may also produce a softer, silkier feel to the water and be easier to maintain overall. In addition, the salt in the water can help to balance the pH levels and make the water feel more natural.

However, there are also some potential downsides to using a salt water system in a hot tub. One potential issue is that the salt can be corrosive to certain types of metal, such as brass and copper. It is important to carefully read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure that the salt water system is compatible with the hot tub and its components. Another issue is higher chlorine levels and potentially more chemical balancing. Salt water systems can also lead to more calcium deposits in the tub, which can be harder to clean and potentially shorten the lifespan of components.

Sundance® Spas offers an alternative with their ActiveOxygen™ and CLEARRAY® systems, which use ozone and UV lighting to sanitize the water naturally. While these systems do require some supplemental chemicals, they can result in more natural-feeling water and lower maintenance costs.

Overall, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons before deciding on a salt water or alternative hot tub system.

Do I need an electrician or special wiring for a hot tub?

Most hot tubs require special wiring to operate safely and efficiently. Depending on the model you choose, with the exception of plug-and-play models, you may need to have your hot tub wired by a licensed electrician. The cost of electrical installation for a hot tub can vary widely, depending on factors such as the size of the hot tub, the complexity of the installation, and the location of the hot tub. On average, you can expect to pay between $500 and $1,500 for electrical installation for a hot tub, although prices may be higher or lower depending on your specific circumstances.

To ensure the safety of your hot tub and those who use it, it is important to have your hot tub wired by a licensed electrician who is knowledgeable about the specific requirements for hot tubs. In addition to installing the necessary wiring, an electrician may also recommend installing a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outside as an emergency disconnect for the hot tub. This can make it easier for service technicians to access the hot tub if needed and can help protect against electrical accidents.

Is a Smaller Hot Tub more efficient?

While the size of your hot tub may not directly impact its power consumption, there are other factors that can affect how much energy your hot tub uses. The number of pumps and jets that your hot tub has, as well as the type of technology it employs, (SmartTub®), can all play a role in how much energy it consumes.

For example, two hot tubs of different sizes may have the same number of pumps and jets and be configured in the same way, but if one of them is equipped with a SmartTub® system, it may be more energy efficient than the other. This is because the SmartTub® app allows you to control energy savings, filtration, temperature, lighting, jets, and more— all of which can impact operating costs.

One way to compare the power consumption of different hot tubs is to look at their operating costs. For example, if two hot tubs have similar pump and jet configurations but different sizes, their operating costs may be similar even though their size is different. The Sundance® Spas Marin® and Sundance® Spas Cameo® are both examples of hot tubs with similar operating costs despite being different sizes.
