As we celebrate World Earth Day, it's crucial to reflect on ways we can contribute to a healthier planet. Just small lifestyle choices can make a significant impact on our environment. One such example is the use of hot tubs, which, when chosen and maintained wisely, can align with eco-friendly practices.


World Earth Day, first observed on April 22nd, 1970, serves as a global reminder to raise awareness about our environment. But can you indulge in the luxury of a hot tub without leaving a footprint on the planet? Absolutely! Here's how:

Energy Efficiency:

Quality hot tubs are designed with energy efficiency in mind. They utilize advanced insulation materials and energy-saving technologies to minimise electricity consumption. When shopping for a hot tub, look for models with eco-friendly features such as automatic dosing systems, natural purification systems, programmable settings economy modes, high energy efficiency ratings, weather spa bags and heat pump options to further reduce energy usage.

Water Conservation and Efficient Filtration Systems:

Proper water management is essential for both the environment and your wallet. Choose a hot tub with efficient filtration systems, such as advanced cartridge filters with eco-friendly settings. These systems effectively remove impurities and contaminants from the water, reducing the need for frequent water changes. With an efficient filter system in place, you may only need to change the filter every 1-2 years, saving both water and maintenance efforts. Additionally, consider investing in a weather spa bag cover to minimize running costs and maintain water temperature, further conserving water resources. Regular maintenance, including monitoring water levels and cleaning filters, can help conserve water and maintain optimal hygiene. Saving you time and money!

Sustainable Materials:

Many hot tub manufacturers are increasingly using sustainable materials in their products. Look for options made from recycled or eco-friendly materials, such as recycled plastics or wood sourced from responsibly managed forests. These choices not only reduce environmental impact but also support sustainable forestry practices.

Heating Solutions:

Explore alternative heating options for your hot tub, such as solar or air-ground source heat pump systems. While initial installation costs may be higher, these renewable energy sources can significantly reduce reliance on traditional electricity powered heaters, ultimately lowering carbon emissions and reduces overall running costs – it’s a no brainer!  

Eco-Friendly Maintenance: 

Maintaining water quality is essential for a safe and enjoyable hot tub experience. Opt for environmentally friendly cleaning and sanitizing products that minimise the use of harsh chemicals. Consider natural alternatives like Ultra-violate purification systems which are gentler on the environment and promote healthier water compared to harsh gases like ozone. Additionally, investing in automatic dosing systems can help optimize chemical usage by precisely measuring and dispensing the necessary amount, reducing waste and ensuring consistent water balance without over-treating. These systems not only simplify maintenance but also contribute to a more sustainable hot tub experience.

Proper disposal:

A high-quality hot tub, when properly maintained, can endure for over 15 years. When the time comes to replace your current one, make sure to dispose of it responsibly by reaching out to a reputable hot tub company or donating usable components to minimize waste.
