By the end of this service, your hot tub will be spotlessly clean and working like new again. If any of its parts aren’t working properly, the technician will have repaired or replaced them. And if they spot anything they think could develop into a serious problem, they’ll nip the problem in the bud.
Is it worth servicing a hot tub?
A good hot tub service will set you back a few hundred pounds. Not finding out about a serious issue with your spa it would have uncovered could set you back thousands.
Plus, your hot tub will be working like new again after its components have been deep cleaned, tested, and replaced where needed.
In short: getting your hot tub serviced will leave it working better for longer. We recommend every hot tub owner gets their spa serviced regularly to make sure they get the most from the money they’ve invested in installing and running it.
Do I still need to get my hot tub serviced if I look after my hot tub?
Getting your hot tub serviced is like taking your car for its MOT. You can keep your car clean and change its oil and check its tyres’ tread depth yourself. But a qualified professional will need to get under the bonnet to spot a whole host of problems that you would have never known about otherwise.
Your hot tub is the same. No matter how closely you follow our hot tub maintenance guides, there could be a leak in its pipework or the chlorine you use to sanitise your spa could have eroded away its rubber seals. Skip your annual hot tub service and you’ll never find out about these problems, which could shave years off your spa’s lifespan.
How often does a hot tub need to be serviced?
You should get your hot tub serviced once a year. Making an annual service part of your hot tub maintenance routine will help ensure any potential problems get spotted before they’ve caused serious damage to your spa.
The final word
Getting your hot tub serviced annually is a simple way of making sure you’ll get as many years of good use out of it as possible.
Any WhatSpa?-recommended hot tub dealer will either offer their own service or be able to recommend a trustworthy technician to handle your annual service.
