    A blower is not a heater.
    If you want a heated spa, get a gas fired heater.

    With my set up, I can turn the valves to 100% spa intlet and 100% spa outlet, then turn on the heater and it only warms the spa, no heat wasted. Without a schematic and/or pictures of your configuration, there's no way to know what's possible. Do you even have a heater?

    By the way, the more bubbles you have, the faster the water cools, and the more the heater runs.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
