But the cost of running the pump constantly will far exceed any benefit.
: I recently had my hot tub (2002 Gulf Coast Boca Grande) serviced, it
: needed a new heater element. While replacing it, the technician who
: came to my house told me that I was not getting any benefit from my
: ozonator since the tubs pump was only running two hours twice daily.
: He told me that the ozonator really needs to be running 16 hours
: daily for the tub to benefit, so if I was going to run it 16 hours
: why not just run 2-12 hours cycles and reduce any on & off type
: wear and tear on the pump, motors, heater, etc. This was the first
: time I had anyone come out to work on the tub since we bought it and
: of course the first time anything like this had been suggested to me.
: Since the tub's pump is in a constant "on" cycle, I am
: wondering exactly how much more electricity is being used (has only
: been operating this way for 5 days so far) and will not know until I
: get the next electricity bill and hopefully not much "sticker
: shock". That is why I am asking if this is really going to be
: that much more beneficial to the tub before I let this go on too
: Thank you, Rich
