How Can I Heat Up My Hot Tub Without a Electric Pool Heater?

My pool heater broke and it’s going to cost ,000 to replace. I have a pool and a connected hot tub. Since it’s summer the pool does not need to be heated but I really want to have my friends over to go into the hot tub, but since we have no heater the hot tub is the same temperature as the pool. My question is, is there any way I can heat a hot tub sized body of water without something like a pool heater and for relatively cheap (under 0).

    You say the pool heater is broke. I am surprised you can have it repaired for less that $5000. I would look in that direction first. You are not likely to find a heater and install it for only the hot tub for only $150.

    I suggest you contact this website maybe they can help you.

    No, fooling around with electricity and water can be very dangerous. Bite the bullet and get it replaced.

    My friend once used a few electric water heater to warm up his spa. Chemical manufacturers use them to heat chemicals in 55 drums. Google ‘electric water heater for 55 gallon drum’ and you’ll probably find it. Stay warm! :)

  4. Heater issues is really one of the common issues and it is the easiest to diagnose. Being aware with it will surely save you from more hassle in the future.

    I don’t think there are any alternative with it unless you buy a new heater for it.

    We heat tanks to 98 degrees using a regular hot water heater in a closed system. We use coils of copper in the bottom of the tanks because we can’t mix the chemicals we are heating with water but I can’t see why a hot water tank can’t be put in line to bypass the hot water heating element in the spa that went bad. There should be a power supply to the hot water heater that came with the spa. I would disconect that (use an electrician if you don’t know what you are doing).
