    Hot Tub Repair

    Any suggestions who to call in the Tri-County area for service.

    What do you need done? I've repaired mine myself, depends on what needs to be done.

    I second this. They're pretty simple machines.

    If you just want someone to do it, there's Hot Tubs Inc. in Owings (Calvert County). Or Scott's Pools in Prince Frederick. Neither of which have great ratings.

    You should get it upgraded instead of fixed.

    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    The tub is outdoors and one day, it was doing its normal thing of cycling water about every 15-20 minutes and later in the day I noticed it wasn't doing it. My first thought was maybe the breaker flipped and I checked the plug and breaker box and then the breaker on the tub connection nothing seemed different, even used different extension cord no luck.

    Reset all breakers associated with the hot tub, even if they do not looked tripped.

    Then we can start troubleshooting more.

    Let us know.

    Extention cord? Is this a normal hot tub or one of those blow up kind, or is it gas?

    Assuming it's a "normal" hot tub, in addition to what DoWhat said above, check the pump(s). They often have onboard overload reset buttons so make sure they aren't tripped. Also, again assuming a normal hot tub with a control panel, check the control panel fuse(s). TURN OFF THE POWER FIRST! If none of those work, it's likely your control panel.

    Spaguts.com offers replacements and I've gone with them before. It's an easy repair.

    If you look at the control panel, does it flash an error code? Mine does this when something isn't working. usually it's a clogged filter. It has also been low on water and flashed the appropriate code. Both times it didn't cycle on/off like normal.
