How Does The Lay-Z-Spa Power Saving Timer Work?

Avoid wasting power by making use of your Lay-Z-Spa’s Power Saving Timer. Simply set how long you want your heater to stay on and when you want it to start heating so your Lay-Z-Spa is only on when it needs to be.

What Is The Purpose Of The Power Saving Timer?

First things first, it is important to understand that there are two components to the Lay-Z-Spa Power Saving Timer, which lets you;

1. Set how long you would like the heater to stay on for up to 48 hours

2. Set when your spa heater turns on, up to 24 hours in advance

Lay-Z-Spa hot tubs without Freeze Shield™ are designed to hibernate after 72 hours of inactivity. The Power Saving Timer therefore will not operate for longer than 72 hours.

Which Models Have The Lay-Z-Spa Power Saving Timer?

The Power Saving Timer is available on all Lay-Z-Spa AirJet and HydroJet models produced from 2016 to the present. The Lay-Z-Spa App also allows you to set a schedule on your Lay-Z-Spa.

When Would I Use The Power Saving Timer?

As an example, say it was 12 PM on Friday and you want to begin heating your Lay-Z-Spa at 10 AM on Saturday (22 hours’ time) and want it to heat for 6 hours. Perhaps you are going away Friday evening and want it ready and waiting for when you get home at 4 PM on Saturday.
To do this you would:

1. Press the timer button on your pump and set the heat duration to 6 hours

2. Press the timer button on your pump again and the set the timer to 22 hours (This is when your Lay-Z-Spa will start heating).

3. Once the heater has heated for 6 hours it will stop heating and will not automatically reset. You will then need to complete steps 1 and 2 again.

It is important to remember it can take anything from 12 to 24 hours to heat up your Lay-Z-Spa to 40°C in average English summer temperatures.
