    5. Common Questions

      • Installation

      • Can the spa be converted to run on 240V?

      • The Cape Town hot tub is by default not configured for 240V. You can however use a local electrician to convert it to 240V, according to the instructions in the manual.

        Daily usage

      • How long does it take to heat up the spa?

      • According to one customer it takes about a day and a half to get up to the max temperature. However, if the unit is converted to 220V, the water heats very fast at about 6-7 degrees per hour.

      • How often do I have to replace the filter?

      • This depends of course on usage, but under normal circumstances you should replace your filter every 6 months.

      • What is the maximum temperature?

      • The maximum temperature of the Cape Town hot tub is set at the maximum temperature allowed by law, 104 fahrenheit.
