Top three things that effect your running cost.

Softub in SnowThe first is the type of insulation your hot tub has, if you bought a Costco or Home depot hot tub or any spa with a perimeter type insulation system then you need to insulate it the cheapest way is to put fiberglass pink into large garbage bags, tape the bags closed and put them around the spa between the shell and the skirt, remember to leave room around the motors so they don’t overheat.

The next this is your cover. You should have a good 4″-5″ cover with a center baffle if you don’t then get one. Ifimages your cover is getting heavy and waterlogged replace it, the r-Value is gone once it is full of water. Also make sure your cover is securely fastened! A cover that is flapping around with every gust of wind is loosing heat, clip is closed and have the clips at the right length so it holds the cover tightly onto the hot tub. A floating thermal blanket is great too, it protects the cover from the hot water, hold humidity in and insulates! But don’t buy the cheap bubble pack ones get a good polypropoline blanket

Shut your venturi air valves when not using the hot tub. These are the small dials or levers around the shell that inject air into the jets, if they are open they are injecting outside air into your hot tub!

Hi Chris, thanks for all of your info! We are having a Master Spa Twilight 8.2 delivered next week, and were wondering if you had any tips to protect the cover from hail damage (i.e. spa caps, plexiglass, etc.). We live in Denver with regular hail storms, and would like our cover to last as long as possible. Thanks!

speaking of hot tub covers, I cannot find any comments about whether a lifter is necessary or not ? I kind of hate the way tubs look with the covers propped up like a wall but does anyone still just take them on and off manually anymore?

Also does the Twilight 7.2 Master Spa have venturi air valves? And where?

Where can I find the polypropoline blanket you mention???

Sell me one!!

When you say “to put fiberglass pink into large garbage bags” why wouldn’t you just put the fiberglass insulation (is there a certain R value you recommend) in the open spaces inside the skirt? Also I’m assuming you don’t what to surround the motors to avoid them from over heating, correct?

Hi trying to decide between Artesian 735L SE and Premium Line HTS1411 what one would you recommend Thanks
