Picture this: You have your swimsuit on and you’re reading to spend a relaxing night in the hot tub, but there are too many issues preventing you from getting in the water. Not only can that be disappointing in the moment, but it may cause you to think that there’s nothing you can do to fix it. However, that’s not the case.
Looking to do a little DIY troubleshooting to get your hot tub back up and running? Here are some tips.
If Your Hot Tub Won’t Heat Up
If you plan to hop into a warm tub of water but notice that the water is freezing cold, there’s a problem. But don’t worry — you can try and figure out what’s wrong. Using a multimeter can help you quickly identify the root of the problem and get you back on your way to relaxation. The tool identifies if there is a problem with the electrical components by running a few tests. If you still can’t figure out what’s wrong, reach out to your local hot tub and service and maintenance group.
If Your Water Temperature Is All Over the Place
When you get in your Sundance hot tubs, does your water temperature get hot, then cold, then get hot again? If so, you could have a water flow issue. Take a moment to clean out your filter and check for circulation blockages. Then, if necessary, top off your water if any of it drained out of the tub. If none of this is working, check to see if your pump turns on. Your pump must work for the water to heat up. If it isn’t working, your pump might need replacing.
If Your Jets Aren’t Working
Among many other perks, one of the best parts about sitting in Sundance hot tubs is the jets. But if the jets aren’t working, there might be a solution. To figure out the problem, turn on each on your jets to make sure they’re all wide open. You should also check inside each jet to see if there is debris or buildup clogging them and preventing water from flowing. You might also have an airlock. If you recently refilled your hot tub, turn the jets on and off a few times to force the air out. These are effortless ways to resolve an issue without having to call in the big guns.
Soaking in Sundance hot tubs and spas can be one of the most relaxing things on the planet. In fact, 83.9% of hot tub owners purchased their tub with the primary purpose of relaxing and relieving stress. But if your unit isn’t working, you’re not going to be able to enjoy it. Check to see if your jets are clogged, if you have a blockage, or use a multimeter to identify the problem.
