Default NG heated hot tubs

I've seen these in the States, but never in Canada. Is there a reason? With hydro pricing doing it's doing I'm reluctant to invest in a giant electric water heater I'm keeping outside.

Probably not approved for use in Canada. I have never seen one

As bad as electricity costs are here they are much higher in some of the states. This might be the reson behind NG being used to heat some hot tubs there.

A natural gas heater would have to be much more expensive to purchase than the electric heaters in hot tubs and around here it would take a long time to recoup that added cost.
