You have been dying to get a hot tub for yourself. So, you finally do so and have it installed in your house or in your backyard. Now, you have envisioned a great time relaxing in it for the rest of your life. You can’t wait to leave work and come soak in it. Even your friends and family are lining up, waiting to get inside and enjoy the luxurious water. This goes on for two months and suddenly, the water in your hot tub is no longer getting heated and you have no idea why. This is what happens when you do not pay attention to the service needs and proper maintenance of your hot tub. If unchecked for a long time, you might end up with irreparable damage.
To save your money, keep your hot tub for years to come and enjoy an overall positive experience, here is what you need to know about the importance of regular hot tub service.
Some of The Common Problems That Hot Tubs Experience
There are problems that your hot tub is likely to experience. First, the jets might stop working at some point. This does not mean that the jet or multiple jets are broken. It could be a couple of reasons leading up to this, for example, it could be that there is debris clogging the circulation points. You should not try to fix this yourself, instead we recommend speaking with a spa service technician who is both experienced and certified.
The water might be getting warm and cold in turns. This is not normal and means that something should be fixed. It’s a hot tub after all, so the water should remain hot. Other times, you could be having the control panel register error codes. This does not show a fault with the electronic as some would dismiss. It proves that something is wrong with the water. It could the pressure or the pH.
Why You Should Have Your Water Tub Serviced
Here are some tell-tale signs that your hot tub requires service:
- The jets stop working
- The water isn’t warming up
- The water is cloudy or murky
- The water has foam along the top
- The water has an odor
- The circulation is poor
In these cases, we recommend scheduling a service appointment right away.
