When you are out shopping for a spa many of you will end up at a crossroads on this particular issue. For some this can be a tough decision depending on the brand spa. Some brands strongly support building a spa with or without a circulation pump. This is always something a sales person will bring up to help determine models that fit your needs so let’s prepare you for that interaction. First lets talk about what a circulation pump is and the role that it plays in a spa.

The Krossber Brothers Point Of View
The beauty of this topic is that as a Caldera Spa dealer we have the ability to offer you models with and without circ pumps. Our non circ pump spas are programmable as well so that we can set up a spa to be very energy efficient. The reality is numbers are numbers though and you must sacrifice something somewhere when choosing a spa without a circ pump. When you buy a spa with a circ pump you end up with 24/hr filtration and lower operating costs over the life of the spa.
On our models with circ pumps you also end up with 5 full years of component warranty that also includes labor should it need replacement/repair over the standard 2 year warranty that most non circ pump spas offer. Our Caldera Circ pump draws roughly .5 amps whereas jet pumps can vary from 1.7 amps on up. Is this a big difference when we are talking monthly electrical costs? No not at all. Most consumers would not even notice. But these are the sales tactics used by many to sway you one way or the other depending on how their brand spa is built.
That’s why we are a Caldera Spa dealer, we can offer both and keep things very energy efficient!
