Think you’ll save money if you buy a spa without a separate circulation pump?



How they compare
Circulation Pump
Non-Circulation Pump
Noise level Almost completely silent Noticeable pump noise
Cost to run per hour 1.5 cents per hour (1.3 amps @ 115 volts) 10.14 cents per hour (low speed 4.4 amps @ 240 V)
Turnover rate through filter system 2400 gallons per hour for just 1.5 cents @ 40 GPM 3600 gallons per hour for 10.2 cents @ 60 GPM
Cost to filter continuously 24 hours in one day $0.37 $2.42
Normal operation gallons filtered in 24 hours* 57,600 @ 24 hrs/day 21,600 @ 6 hrs/day
Normal operation filtration cost per month* $11.10 $18.25
Cost to filter 100 gallons $0.06 $0.28

*6 hrs / day is a typical number of hours for a non circulation pump spa to run to keep the water clean. Vitaspas 24 hour circulation keeps spa water cleaner with less effort for almost $200/yr less.

     A Vitaspa with our specially designed high efficiency, high flow circulation pump will save you at least $85.00 per year on electricity while at the same time providing 63% better filtration than a spa the uses low speed of one of the jet pumps. This better filtration will also save you money on chemicals and keep your water much cleaner with much less effort.

      As you can see, large powerful jet pumps are not designed to filter water in an energy efficient manner. Their purpose is to pump lots of water for powerful jet action. You can see how the small extra cost of a circulation pump up front will save you money in the operation of your spa while at the same time keep your water much cleaner and safer. Great 24 hour filtration will also save money on chemicals by removing organics from the spa much faster than a pump that only comes on from time to time or runs only 6 hours each day as is the case with a non circulation pump spa. The above calculations are based on $0.10 per KWH. Flow rates were obtained via manufacturers specification data.
