13 Amp or  32 Amp?

When browsing through the different types of hot tubs there are many features to consider when acquiring the appropriate hot tub for yourself

One feature to consider is the attributes of a 13amp or a 32amp hot tub.

This article will help you understand the benefits of both 13 & 32 amps so you can conclude with which hot tub is best to suit your requirements.


What are amps?


Amps or ampage is the power required for each hot tub to perform, 13 amp is the same power as you may already be accustomed to within most standard homes, whilst a 32 amp supply is more powerful and may require a specific installation by a qualified electrician. 


What is the specification difference between a 13 and 32 amp hot tub?


The main difference between 13 and 32 amp hot tubs in the Hot Tub Supplier range are as below.

13 amp hot tubs would feature :

A, A 2KW or 3kw heater (All 32amp have 3kw). This heater is responsible for heating the water in the hot tub.

B, A single pump system (32amp hot tub can be single or multiple pump systems). These pumps are responsible for the flow of water through the jets.


What does this mean?


A 2kw heater would take longer to heat water than a 3kw heater, this might not be an issue if the hot tub is situated indoors or under shelter, but might be worth consideration if left in a more open & exposed location.

A single pump system would manage the hot tub exactly the same as a 32 amp hot tub ( with a single pump system ) so there would be no difference.

Also on 13amp systems the pump & heater would not be possible to run simultaneously unlike 32amps where this is possible.




Both 13amp and 32 amp hot tub have benefits, 13 amp models are easier to install and connect, whilst the 32 amp ensures better performance with the extra power created.
