How much do Whirlpoool baths cost to run?
We posed this question to several manufacturers of these wonderful spa baths and the response was quite appealing. The average cost of running a whirlpool bath for 1 hour is less than 5 pence (5p).
Obviously this really depends on the size of pump your whirlpool bath uses & the electricity rate you are on with your energy provider.
Your very own Jacuzzi Baths
The whirlpool baths require no special plumbing, but do require an electricity supply to power the low voltage pump. Save money by cancelling that spa subscription and replace your existing bath with a whirlpool experience.
Cons / Negatives of a Whirlpool Bath?
Adding a luxury whirlpool bath is not without the negatives, here are a few to consider before 'diving in'.
- Electricity Cost
- More Maintenance Required
- Repairs more Expensive
As we mentioned above, there are additional running costs when you switch on the whirlpool jets, even though on average 5p per hour doesn't seem like much, it can soon add up.
More Maintenance Required
Unlike standard baths, whirlpool baths do require more maintenance. Not only do you need to clean your bath, you also need to regularly flush the pipes to remove build up of soap suds, hair 🤒 and other potential blockages for maximum performance.
Repairs more Expensive
Although we don't expect a brand new whirlpool bath to break, you do need to consider the costs of replacement parts / labour if something was to break with your whirlpool bath springs a leak or the pump breaks. Most whirlpool baths come with a standard 12 month warranty, and providing you do keep up with regular maintenance your whirlpool bath should last many years of extended use.
