Many hot tubs come equipped with a hot tub blower, but they can also work perfectly well without one. If your hot tub doesn't have a blower, it may be possible to add an aftermarket part depending on the compatibility with your spa pack control panel.
Should you run jets while heating hot tub? Clear snow from around the hot tub. 3. Turn on your jets for circulation as you increase the temperature. This will circulate the heat throughout the tub and clear any possible cold spots out.
Do air tubs require electricity?
Some air jet bathtubs have a built in heater so a dedicated circuit may be required depending on the required amperage for the heater unit. Always consult the manufacturers installation manual for the model you have purchased for detailed circuit requirements. Do hot tubs draw a lot of electricity? Modern manufacturers advertise the cost to run their hot tubs at about one dollar per day, with $50 per month at the high end. The energy cost of a hot tub varies based mainly on the heater, which usually draws between 1,500 watts or 6,000 watts.
Do you have to drain a hot tub to replace the motor?
You can drain the spa to make the repair, if you need to drain anyway, but it's not necessary. The hoses can be plugged using wine corks or stoppers, or pinched using large needle nose locking pliers (Vice-Grip type). Or you can do a quick swap, described below, and spill a few gallons.
