Test procedures and data collection is based on the test method for Portable Electric Spas stipulated in Section 1604, Title 20, California Code of Regulations, amended on December 3, 2008. CEC testing parameters require that all units listed are tested in a third party or CEC approved laboratory, under a controlled environment with an ambient air temperature of 60[15.6°C]±3°F and hot tub water temperature of 102[38.9°C]±2°F, with the hot tub cover on for a continuous 72 hours, and in compliance with ANSI/APSP/ICC-14 2011 and IAPMO filtration and water turnover requirements.
Energy consumption may vary significantly with ambient environmental temperature, frequency of use, filtration settings and the use of other hot tub features including temperature controls, circulating jets, etc.
Estimated monthly operating costs are based on testing conducted in a controlled environment with the following parameters: Using the hot tub for 30 minutes every other day, maintaining hot tub water temperature of 102°F[38.9°C].
Check with your local utility for the energy rate (cost per kilowatt hour) in your area as the actual operating cost could vary based on your yearly average ambient temperature, hot tub usage and cost per kilowatt hour.
