Can a Hot Tub Overheat?

Although getting your beach groove on and humming a little “feeling hot, hot, hot” is a blast on a summer day, it’s not so great when your hot tub is too hot. But how can you prevent your perfect backyard paradise from getting in the mood to overheat? We’re so glad you asked.

Cool as A Cucumber?

Well, actually, you DON’T want your hot tub water to be cold, right? But you definitely don’t want it to overheat. The whole point of your steamy tub is to have an escape into the beautiful world of warm water hydrotherapy. With benefits to both body and mind, your stunning spa is your favorite space to come home to. So, the instances of your spa overheating should be few and far between. To give your spa a leg up on being in pristine operating condition, take time to tackle these tips.
  • Keep your water level up. Nothing is worse than leaving your hot tub cover off, letting the water evaporate, and having your hot tub operate without enough water in it. Thankfully, newer models have an auto-shutoff mechanism if the spa temp reaches 112°. You don’t want to damage your pumps, jets, and other internal components when you spa doesn’t have enough water.
  • Maintain your hot tub properly. Make sure your water is balanced and that your filters are clean and clear. Also, set yourself a reminder for when it’s time to replace your filter. You’ll find excellent replacement parts at Fronheiser Pools.
  • Troubleshoot. If your hot tub is overheating and you don’t know why, it’s time to call in the experts. A quick request with our online form can get you the help that you need. One of our service technicians can troubleshoot the issue and let you know what needs to be done to get your spa’s temperature back on track.
  • Move up to the big time. If your aging spa is overheating time and time again, it’s probably time for an upgrade. Newer models have a temperature ceiling of 104°, so you’ll be sure that you water will be the perfect temperature for the whole family. When you are in the market for a new hot tub, visit Fronheiser Pools. With a selection of incredible spas from Caldera® and Freeflow®, you are sure to get the perfect model to compliment your lifestyle.
