There are many reasons why a Calgary hot tub owner may wish to replace their spa jets. While the tub itself is extremely durable, smaller components — like the jets — will eventually fail and need to be replaced. Signs that your hot tub jets may be failing are strange noises or leaks. They may also simply stop producing air or have reduced air pressure. It’s also possible in an older spa for the jets to pop out of place. In a younger spa, this problem is usually caused by an excess of chemicals.
Why do Spa Jets Malfunction?
The easy answer is that everything malfunctions eventually, but we know that’s not the kind of answer you’re looking for. In general, what’s important to remember is that no part of your spa works in isolation. Your jets malfunction because deposits of cleaning chemicals, shampoo, sunscreen, oils from your skin, dirt, etc. eventually wear them down, causing them to crack. By keeping your spa in peak condition— by having your hot tub professionally cleaned every two weeks through the RnR Maintenance program for example — you can help keep your jets in optimal shape for as long as possible.
As a bonus, when entropy inevitably wears out the jets, maintenance members will also benefit from a 20% discount on parts and labour.
