If you need some hot tub repairs done but don’t know what to do, maybe this will help you.
First off, you should try to avoid having to replace your hot tub by cleaning it regularly and doing small repairs on it. Here are some repair tips that might help you.
Any time you have any mechanical or electrical problems with your spa, you should call in a professional who is experienced with the brand of spa you have. You shouldn’t handle wiring problems on your own unless you know exactly what you are doing. Remember, water and electricity is being mixed here. If you have any leaks in your hot tub, you can repair it yourself by following the directions in your instruction manual. You can also get a repair kit that will fix the leak. You can find most of these kits at a home improvement store that are pretty cheap. Follow the instructions for using the repair kit so you use it right. If your spa is smoking or you smell burning, you should report it to a professional. When one of the mechanical systems in it stops working correctly it may lead to an electrical burn smell. If you see smoke, you will probably need an extinguisher. You should not turn off the power.
Cleaning your spa is a good way to keep your hot tub from breaking down and to keep you healthy as well when you’re in it. If you do not clean it, contaminants such as bacteria, oil, and dirt can gather at the waterline. Some of the things that you should do are: remove floating debris, empty skimmer basket once a week, brush and vacuum the hot tub, clean the oily ring on the water line, prevent waterline buildup by removing the scum, and flush your spas plumbing system by adding Natural Chemistry Spa Purge the night before you drain it. You should also test your spa water every so often to make sure that it has the right amount chemicals it needs to work properly and keep you safe.
So if you would like to keep your hot tub working smoothly, you should maintain it as much as you can.
