Here are some common hot tub problems

  1. Jacuzzi®  Cover Issues

The cover is one of the most common problems customers experience with their Jacuzzi® . The covers are necessary for keeping the heat in the tub and dirt out, but they may be difficult to lift and occasionally break. We can help you repair or replace your hot tub cover if it is broken.

Action Spa Repair offers a wide variety of covers to choose from so that you can find one that fits your needs. We also offer a cover lifter installation service so that you can easily remove and replace your cover without any hassle.

2. Jacuzzi®  Error Codes

Error codes for hot tubs can be confusing. However, they aid in pointing up an issue. Additionally, each manufacturer of hot tubs typically includes codes and related repairs in their owner’s manual. If you want help with any of the error codes displayed, you can  contact Action Spa Repair.

3. Faulty Jacuzzi®  Heater Element

What is enjoyable in a Jacuzzi®  without hot water? Saltwater circulation or scale buildup can cause your Jacuzzi®  heating element to malfunction. Also, turning on the heater when there’s no water around it can burn out. Scale buildup on your Jacuzzi’s®  heater element’s exterior will lower the steamy hot tub output and eventually put the element at risk of failing the circulation pump. 

Whatever the case, Action Spa Repair’s team of innovative technicians will get your Jacuzzi®  heating properly again.

4. Malfunctioning Control Panel

Malfunctioning control panels are another common issue people have with their Jacuzzis® . The control panel allows you to turn on the jets, adjust the temperature, and operate all of the other functions. It might be really annoying if your control panel is not operating properly.

Action Spa Repair offers a wide variety of replacement control panels to find one that fits your needs. We also offer a control panel installation service. Contact us today for assistance if you have other Jacuzzi®  problems.

5. Malfunctioning Pump

If you have a malfunctioning pump, it can be very frustrating. Common factors that cause malfunctioning pumps are debris blockage and electrical faults. When a foreign body blocks the impeller(a component that helps to circulate water), the pump may stop working.

Also, large air bubbles within the plumbing may result in airlocks, which can also affect the pump,

6. Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter

A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) breaker is a device that helps protect against electrical shocks while using your Jacuzzi® . If the GFCI detects an abnormality in the flow of electric current, it will trip and shut off the power to the device.

Typical causes of GCFI malfunctions include running the heater without enough water in the hot tub, obstructions, improper circulation, and chemical deposits. Sometimes, GFCIs can trip even when there is no danger of an electrical shock.

For safety reasons, issues with GFCI should neither be ignored nor overlooked. If your Jacuzzi®  has been tripping off on its own, quickly call Action Spa Repair today to get it fixed.

7. Faulty Plumbing

It’s critical to rectify any issues with your Jacuzzi’s®  plumbing system as soon as possible. This is because the water could easily get contaminated if there is a plumbing issue.

Leaks, clogs, and breakage are a few things that might go wrong with the plumbing system of your Jacuzzi® . If you encounter any of these issues, we advise contacting Action Spa Repair. Our team will respond swiftly to solve the problem.

8. Water Chemistry Problem

The water chemistry has to be correct to get the best experience with your Jacuzzi® . Smelly water, green water, musty water, and murky water are all symptoms of poor water chemistry.

It would be best to double-check the following for proper water chemistry maintenance.

  • Chlorine/Bromine
  • pH

Both of these are testable with test strips. Ideally, you should check them each time you use the Jacuzzi® .

Poor water maintenance can clog the filter, render the water acidic, and harm hot tub parts.
