Assuming the buckets are identical...

Hose 1 fills 1/45 per minute and hose 2 fills 1/30 per minute, so together in one minute they would fill 1/45 + 1/30 ie 5/90 or 1/18, ie the bucket would be filled in 18 minutes.

How many gallons of water to fill a hot tub?

Fill a gallon bucket, timing how long it takes to do so. Then fill your hot tub using the same source... example: if you filled the bucket with a hose, then fill the tub using the same hose. Then time how long it takes to fill the tub and divide the time it takes to fill the tub by the time it takes to fill the bucket and then you know how many gallons it is.
