How do I reduce spa running costs? (Top two upgrades reviewed)

Want to reduce running costs and maintenance on your spa or swim spa? Then these two spa upgrades should be on your radar!

Old people in spa Hero

Spa and swim spa technology has come a long way in recent years. By and large, they’re a lot cheaper to run and easier to maintain than those manufactured even just a few years ago.

However, if energy efficiency and low maintenance is a priority for you – there is always more you can do to save time and money.

Two smart spa upgrades we’re loving right now are the automatic AquaSal™ salt system and the SpaNet® SV Series heat pump.

"An automatic AQ system could save you thousands of dollars a year on bottled chemicals."

What is the AquaSal™ Salt System?

The AquaSal™ Salt System (AQ) is an automatic sanitising system for swim spas. AQ uses low levels of spa-safe salt water to produce natural chlorine and keep your water clean. In fact, the amount of salt used is less than the salt produced in your tears!

AQ works by automatically delivering a set dose of chlorine every 24 hours. It also monitors the level of chlorine in the water, so if you haven’t used your swim spa in a few days, it won’t add any chlorine until it needs to. This means there’s no chance of over chlorinating.

Not only will the automatic AQ system completely change the way you use your swim spa, it can also save you thousands of dollars a year on bottled chemicals.

The AquaSal™ Salt System can be purchased online at Spa Store.

How can a SpaNET® SV series heat pump save me money?

A SpaNET® SV series heat pump will help keep your spa warm for less, all year round.

Heat pumps are by far the most energy efficient and cost effective way to heat your spa. Using refrigeration technology, they heat your spa water much faster and use less energy than the spa’s inbuilt electric heaters.

Installing a SpaNET® SV series heat pump could reduce your spa’s heating costs by up to 75 percent on every single power bill. Given that a spa should last you up to 20 years, that’s thousands of dollars in savings over the lifetime of your spa.

In summary

A few smart extras can be all it takes to lower maintenance costs - and raise the level of satisfaction your spa pool or swim spa will give you for years to come.

SpaNet@ SV series heat pumps can be purchased online at Spa Store.
