A 32amp hot tub and a 40amp sauna on a regular, domestic 80amp supply

Hi all

I’m new here so hello and thanks for looking.

I’m looking for what is, I’m hoping, a quick bit of advice.

I’m having an 8kW sauna heater fitted and also want to buy a hot tub. I’m going to get someone in as I need a new circuit, consumer unit etc. But hot tubs have a long delivery wait time at the moment so I want to get on and order one.

I’ve got the option of a plug and play type hot tub which just plugs in a 13amp plug or the superior 32amp tub which obviously has its own circuit and draws more power. I think the 13amp ones maybe pull 2kw and the 32amp about 4.5kw

My question is: The hot tub will always be on so it will inevitably be on at the same time as the sauna for periods. Is this going to be too much on a regular domestic supply with the 32amp hot tub? If it even could be a problem, I’ll just order the 13amp but I’ve no idea. Oh, the main fuse coming in is 80amp.

Thanks.
