Let start with the most common problem; My Is Not Getting Warm.CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

There could be many
different reasons for this;

Your spa filer (s), could be dirty. Most of the time
the spa is not heating is simply a matter of removing your existing spa
filter, rinsing them with a high
pressure hose and re-installing them again. The purpose of the filter is
to catch debris. That debris needs to be removed from the filters a couple
of times per month. If your spa
isn’t heating and you know that your filters haven’t been cleaned for a
while…. Try it first. Now there is always the chance that your filters are
‘beyond all hopes of recovery’, in that case, please just go and get new
ones. Good filter are important, not only for the heat in your spa, but
mainly for your health. The best
method for testing this is remove the filters and see if the heat comes
on…. If it does, your filter is the
culpritThere are situation where the spa filters look perfectly white
and clean but they are actually completely clogged. This happens if your
spa water has high pH for a while. With high pH comes calcium deposits. It
is very hard to see, but if you remove your spa filter and the heater
turns on, you have a filter issueAnother reason why your spa isn’t heating could be that your
pump is clogged with debris. This could happen if your filter was removed
, for even short period of time, and something got sucked into the
pump. If you suspect that this has
happened, you can either take out your toolbox and attempt to repair is
yourself, or call your local spa repair company.One of the main reasons why your spa is not heating is that
your heater is not working. There are mainly two kinds of spa
heaters, gas or electric. Most above ground spa have electric heat. An
electrical heating element only last so long. The heating element is in
contact with the water all the time. And its lifespan depends on how well
the water chemistry has been kept up. For example; if the pH has been to
low for a length of time, that means that the water is acidic. Acid eats
metal and the heater is made of metal…. Always check your incoming electrical power to the spa. It is
very common that the problem is as simple as the a tripped circuit
breaker. Just turn it back on again. A word of caution here: If you turn
the circuit breaker back on and it trips again right away. Call your local Spa Repair Company
immediately. You have a problem here. Do not go inside the water until
they have repaired it.The Pump…. A faulty pump will prevent the spa from heating up.
The pump circulates the water over the heating element, causing the spa to
get warm. If the pump stops the control system will not let the heater
turn on. One of the more common problems
with the pump is that the pump seal has broken. Most of the time it is hard to notice
this problem early on. It typically
starts as a small tiny leak in the pump. The leak is progressively
getting bigger and bigger and my
the time you see a trickle of water coming out from under the spa, you
pump is in bad shape. Sometimes the seal can be replaced , but many times
you will have to get a new pump. If you hear a “funny” sound from the
pump, call your technician. If you caught it early enough you will have
saved yourself $500-$700 typically.CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
