signs that you can watch for to see if you need hot tub repair

One of the best things about having a hot tub is being able to enjoy it year round. Whether it’s to relax your muscles on a summer evening, or enjoy a hot soak on a winter night, you can always count on your hot tub for a good time. Unless, of course, your hot tub breaks. At Cayman Pool & Spa, we want to help you keep your hot tub in good repair so that you can continue to enjoy it whenever you want. To help you do that, we’ve put together a list of warning signs that you can watch for to see if you need hot tub repair.

  • Bad Smells- Pools and hot tubs often smell of strong chemicals when they’ve been recently cleaned, but smelling something truly foul is a sign that you likely need hot tub repair. A bad odor might be a sign of clogged filters, pumps, or drains, which in turn can breed germs and leave your hot tub unsafe to use. Another possible source is a contaminant in the water, such as nitrogen or pesticides. If you notice a strong smell coming from your spa, call our team at Cayman Pool & Spa as soon as possible to see if you need hot tub repair.
  • Leaks- Leaks are another indicator that you need hot tub repair. This issue can be harder to spot, as it’s common for water to splash out of the tub and form puddles; however, splashes will come from the top of the tub, while leaks often form on the bottom or sides. Leaks need to be repaired promptly, or else you’re at risk of water damage to the surrounding area.
  • Won’t Stay Hot- Few things are worse than looking forward to soaking in your hot tub, only to find that the water remains stubbornly at room temperature. If your hot tub won’t heat at all, or can’t maintain a consistent temperature, then you need hot tub repair. Call our team at Cayman Pool & Spa to get your hot tub back up and running as soon as possible.
