Hot Tub Repair
It’s important to buy your hot tub from a retailer that specializes in home spas. These knowledgeable specialists can help you to decide what type of hot tub will best suit your lifestyle, show you what options are available for customization, and even offer advice for transforming your backyard space. In addition, most home spa retailers have an experienced hot tub repair department that will do the initial installation of your tub.
Although hot tubs are sturdy and built to last, you may occasionally run into a mechanical problem. If that happens, you don’t want to be in the situation of calling a 1-800-number in another country – you want to be able to call the company that sold you the tub!
So when you purchase your home spa, ask about the parts and service warranty, and be sure that the company has certified swimming pool and hot tub repair technicians on staff and ready to roll. Keep your hot tub hot and bubbly!
Hot Tub Repair
Hot tub repair technicians in the province of Ontario must
have a Grade 12 diploma or equivalent, and must have completed theory classes
followed by a 6,000-hour apprenticeship under the Ontario College of Trades
Apprenticeship Act (2009). These professionals are able to repair, service and
maintain all types of above-ground, on-ground and in-ground swimming pools, hot
tubs, and spa structures. If you buy your hot tub from a home spa specialist,
it’s likely that the retailer will have a staff of certified pool/hot tub
technicians. They will usually do the initial installation of your hot tub,
and, should you experience any problems, you will be able to call the retailer
and have a mobile technician service your spa.
Check the Warranty
When you buy your home spa, be sure to ask questions about
the warranty. Many home spas have excellent warranties on both parts and
service, but don’t take this for granted; ask for specifics. Most hot tub
warranties will cover the shell, cabinetry, plumbing, equipment, and controls,
but be sure to read the fine print to find out if this is the case. A product
warranty is a performance and reliability agreement between you and the
manufacturer. Because a hot tub is a major purchase, contrast and compare the
warranties of the various spas that you’re considering.
