  1. A Closer Look at the Hot Spring Heater Relay Board

    Over the years, some heater relay boards for the 2001 to 2008 Hot Spring models have occasionally had issues with overheating and burning out. Rather than getting a new hot tub, this part can be replaced. If you're not sure whether or not the heater relay board is the issue, it can be tested on a voltage meter.  If you're not comfortable doing the job yourself, hire a professional or ask someone who is familiar with electronics. The 74618 Hot Spring heater relay board carries a new replacement design. The connecting points have been improved, making the board function more efficiently and last longer. After removing the old board, you can reconnect the new one using a few tools and by following the directions on the manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Identifying And Solving Issues With Hot Tub Pumps

    One of the most important pieces of hot tub equipment is the pump. Hot tub pumps are responsible for moving the water, keeping it clean and creating an enjoyable experience. Several common issues could prevent a pump from working properly. Homeowners with a spa should be aware of common problems with older pumps and the possible solutions. Low Pressure Flow Several issues could cause low pressure in the spa. There might be a leak in one of the hoses. Repairing this involves finding the leak and sealing it. Another possible cause is a damaged impeller that can't create suction. Replacing hot tub pumps with a broken impeller is the only solution. Clogs could also be restricting the water flow. This requires a complete cleaning and potentially replacing older plumbing pieces that have degraded over time. ..

  5. Planning Ahead for Maximum Hot Tub Versatility

    Choosing the right model hot tub is about more than the capacity. It's important to plan ahead and select the right installation. Where you put it can greatly influence your enjoyment, how convenient maintenance is and whether or not you can easily remove it if needed. Location For a new hot tub or spa, the biggest decision is whether you want to go inside or outside. An inside spa is more convenient, but it creates a moisture issue in a lot of environments. You'll need a dehumidifier for interior installation. Another option is the sheltered outdoor install. A carport, screened in porch or a patio under an overhang can provide privacy and protection without compromising on the view or the practical issues. Always find out where the utility lines are and what type of soil you have before you make to many plans about digging.

For Hot Spring heaters, for example, there is a simple way to test them before ordering replacement parts.

  10. Exploring Smart Deck Solutions for Hot Tubs

    When planning where to put a spa outside, location is everything. For homeowners who don't have a deck or patio already built, there are several choices.
