Here are some of the most common hot tub and spa repairs and how to fix them.

Low-Quality Water

Many homeowners face the problem of low-quality water. There are a couple of things that may be causing this problem. You may have a bad filter or a not-so-good chemical balance issue. One way to fix this particular issue to make sure you learn the proper way to add chemicals. Adding too much chemical can cause skin allergies so you want to make sure that you put in the appropriate amount. You could also invest in better filter cartridges for your spa or hot tub. These are two easy ways in which you could improve the quality of your water. Buying good quality branded hot tub chemicals are worth it, as it is kind to the parts within the hot tub and harmless to skin.

Takes Too Long to Heat

If your hot tub or spa is taking a long time to heat you definitely have a problem. The first thing you must immediately check is the filter and its performance. If you have a bad filter then it will get clogged with dirt very easily which can also impact how fast your spa or hot tub heats up. All you have to do in this case is to clean your filters or to simply buy new hot tub filters.

If you find that this does not solve the overall problem you should call as professional as it may be a more serious issue. Call out professional hot tub repair engineers.

Cracked Cover

Spa and hot tub covers tend to crack in the summer. You can protect your cover by putting silicone oil or something similar over it. This will help to protect your spa cover from the sunlight and heat.

If the problem seems complicated, it probably is. Make sure you call a professional hot tub repair and maintenance company for any technical and advanced repairs of your hot tub or spa.
