Heating Hot Tubs

EJ BowmanBowman’s new EC80 heat exchanger is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative to traditional electric heating for hot tubs, as it enables them to be heated by gas or renewable energy boilers. The benefits are significantly faster heat up times – typically up to 8 times faster compared to electric – and significantly lower heating costs. Bowman will illustrate both single and multi-tub installation on the stand, as well as displaying their acclaimed titanium swimming pool heat exchangers.
