Self-heating hot tubs

Recommended Posts

I noticed that hot tubs are constantly heated.

They, of course, exchange heat with the environment,

but then their temperature jumps.

And it doesn’t matter whether they work or not, whether they are connected to the power supply or turned off, they still gain temperature.

Is this a bug or I don’t understand something in their work?

Are they hot because of the hot water added to them?   Or are they both empty?

Both are empty. I have never used it and haven’t supplied water.

That is interesting. I haven't tried hot tubs yet, so I'll experiment with them today and see if I can figure out what's going on.

Since we started talking about hot tubs: will clean water or polluted water come out of them? And how will the temperature of this water change?

Clean water comes out of them, polluted water used as input blocks it up just like using polluted water in a toilet.

The temperature of the output water seems to match the temperature of the building, not reduced by a flat amount or a percentage, though this needs verification.

Maybe hot bleach stone in there? (Sounds like a bug, just making sure...)

I also had problems making my hot tubs work. I was thinking about cooling the enviroment and pump 50 Cº water to it... I'll most likely just give up as you guys are reporting a possible bug to be added to the problem of constant bleach stone production. Doing it through ranching isn't even an option.

We should have a health/hospital related machine to convert chlorine to bleach stone.

In Catalytics, we have the "Oxylite Refinery."  Adding a bleach stone variant shouldn't be too difficult.

Or, since we have a variety of sources of chlorine, and a variety of buildings/plants that use chlorine, perhaps just change the tub to have a chlorine input.
