Cost of operating a hot tub!


We know that one of the most important things on your mind when looking for a hot tub is “How much is it going to cost to operate?” Here are a few of the costs associated with operating a hot tub – hopefully this will ease your mind!

Water –

You will need to refill your hot tub every 3-4 months on average. Most hot tubs will have between 200-400 gals of water. The United States national average cost per gal of water is currently less than one cent ($.01) per gal. This means it will cost less than $1.00 to fill your hot tub every 3-4 months! Super economical for all the relief and health benefits that it will provide to you and your family!


Every hot tub manufacture has a different R-value when it comes to how well their hot tubs are insulated. The better insulated the hot tub, the more energy efficient it is. No matter which Marquis Spa you are looking at, you will not spend on average any more than $20 per month on electricity, even in the dead of winter. We pride ourselves on carrying the most economical and well built hot tub for over 17 years now!

Chemicals –

There are many different chemicals systems you can use on your hot tub and they will all differ slightly in cost, however on average it is less than $1.00 per day for chemicals. Aqua Palace makes it very simple to maintain your hot tub while saving you money as well. All we handle is professional grade chemicals which will allow you to consume much less of them over time, therefore saving you tons of money in the long run.

As you can see, the overall costs of owning and operating a hot tub are pretty economical. There’s nothing to be afraid of when purchasing a premium hot tub from a manufacture that is top of the line! Many other manufactures will cost in excessive of $50-$70 or more monthly just in electricity, let alone all of the additional chemical costs due to their lack of proper water management systems. You can’t go wrong with a Marquis Spa!
