Here’s where we’ll break down what it costs to run a hot tub in Manitoba, especially if you plan to run it 12 months of the year.
First of all, there’s your Hydro bill.
If you are on the TIPP program, meaning you make equal monthly payments on your Manitoba Hydro bill, then you may not even notice much of an increase at all.
In this article, we’ll talk about the monthly average throughout the year.
Generally, it cost anywhere between $30-50/month to run a hot tub in Manitoba, depending on size, how often the cover is open and what temperature you keep it at.
Keep in mind, that will be lower in the summer (next to nothing) and higher in the winter.
But it’s certainly held true on my own personal hot tub (which gets regular use in my family). My bill is about $30-40 more per month with the hot tub than without.
Then there’s your water care cost – the cost of chemicals to maintain a hot tub. This one is a bit harder to nail down, because it really depends on how much you use it and the hygiene of the people using it! How much chemical you use and how much it costs also depends on the size.
If you use your tub 4-5 times per week with multiple bathers, you’re probably looking around $40-50 per month.
The quality of the water care products matters too – you may end up using more of a cheaper brand because it’s got more filler and isn’t as effective.
In my mind, it’s totally worth it to have an enjoyable stress-free soak right in your own backyard (plus we always provide a starter chemical kit when you buy a new tub, worth about 3 months worth of water care).
