Involved in the hot tub and spa industry since the mid-1990s, we’ve literally seen it all. Here are some of the most common types of hot tub repairs and maintenance services that we provide:

Water Chemistry

Water Chemistry

Maintaining the ideal water chemistry for your hot tub is the most common issue hot tub owners face, and luckily, it’s also one of the easiest to fix! You should test your hot tub water supply often to ensure that it contains the right levels of sanitizer.

New Spa Filter

Clogged Filters

Similar to a pool filter, your hot tub’s filter can become clogged with grime, dirt, residue and even body oils over time. If your hot tub’s water cannot filter itself properly, this can lead to further damages to your hot tub’s pump and cover. You should regularly inspect and change your hot tub filter as part of your maintenance plan.

Spa water circulation

Poor Water Circulation

There are many issues that can cause poor water circulation, including pH imbalances, corrosion on your pump seals, clogged filters and not running your pumps long enough.

Spa Pumps Underwater

Malfunctioning Pumps

 If your hot tub’s pump is making loud humming noises, you could have a malfunctioning pump. Monthly maintenance should ensure your pump is functioning properly.

Leaking plumbing seal

Leaky Seals

 You’ll need to replace your hot tub’s o-rings and pump seals from time to time in order to avoid leaky seals. If you have a leaky hot tub, we’d be happy to help you troubleshoot the issue!
