Owning a hot tub is easier than you might think. Modern hot tubs, such as those from the Jacuzzi brand, are built using state-of-the-art technology to help ensure a top-quality experience. This includes but is not limited to water and component maintenance. While these durable materials and advanced design can help to ensure longevity and reduce upkeep, repairs and upgrades may be needed from time to time.
In this article, we take a look at some of the top issues to keep a lookout for, to ensure the quality of your hot tub and experience for years to come.
Repairs Affecting Water Quality
One of the most important parts of owning a hot tub is keeping the water clean. Dirty water is not only unpleasant to soak in, but can also lead to health risks. The first sign your hot tub’s water needs service is water that has an odd or foul odour or is on the murky side.
This could be due to a clogged filter, clogged jet, electrical issue, or a faulty component within the circulation system. First, we suggest removing the filter and inspecting it. You may want to try soaking it in a bucket of filter cleaner diluted by water and cleaning with a filter flosser. If your filter is more than six months old, you may want to consider replacing it altogether. Next, test the water to see if there is an imbalance. If so, treat the water with chemicals accordingly. If this doesn’t do the trick within a day or two, you may want to consider changing the water completely or requesting a service appointment to see if there is something happening beneath the surface.
Signs of Leaking
Hot tub maintenance doesn’t stop at keeping your water clean. You must also be aware of signs of mechanical failure. One problem we often see hot tub owners struggle with is a leaky hot tub. The easiest way to spot a leaky tub is to look for abnormal amounts of water around your tub or water levels that are receding faster than usual.
As this can sometimes be difficult to spot, we suggest not using your hot tub for a few days and watch for any signs of a leak. If you notice that the water level has declined rapidly or that there is a significant amount of water around the hot tub, contact our service department as soon as possible.
