You probably can’t enjoy your outdoor swimming pool during winter months. However, if you’re lucky enough to own a hot tub, then you have a great way to relax in the water even during the colder months. We at Cayman Pool & Spa want to help you continue to enjoy using your hot tub in all seasons, and the key to doing that is to identify potential problems and take care of them before they become severe. In this article, we’ll be going over three signs that you need hot tub repair.
- Algae, Mold, or Mildew- One sure sign that you need hot tub repair is the presence of algae, mold, or mildew in the water or on the walls. All of these microorganisms thrive in warm, moist environments, but a properly functioning hot tub that’s treated with the correct combination of chemicals should be able to prevent these tiny critters from moving in. If you notice green or white slime on the surface of the water, or white or black deposits on the walls, we encourage you to call our team at Cayman Pool & Spa so we can get to the source of the problem.
- Smelly or Murky Water- Another indicator that you probably need hot tub repair is the water becoming murky or developing an unusual or unpleasant smell. Murky water that doesn’t clear up with your normal chemical treatments is a sign that your tub needs some extra attention, and water that develops a foul odor is probably not being circulated properly. Fortunately, our team has the right experience to determine the cause of the issue and correct it to get your hot tub back to its normal state.
- Inconsistent Temperature- It’s hard to relax in a hot tub that won’t stay hot. If the water in your tub refuses to stay at a consistent temperature, then there’s probably something wrong with your heater. We at Cayman Pool & Spa suggest you call our team to find out for sure whether you need hot tub repair.
