Repairing Your Spa
Your spa is comprised of 4 basic things:
- Mechanical and Electrical Systems
If your spa doesn’t run, pump, or heat, the problem is in the mechanical and
electrical systems of the spa. SpaGuts specializes in replacement
components for your spa’s mechanical and electrical systems.
The major components are the spa controller,
spa motor, spa blower, spa pump, and
spa heater. Together these comprise the spa pack, The secondary components are the
spa filter system, and the spa GFCI.
Spa manufacturers normally just make the shell and the frame. Minor
damage to spa shells resulting in small cracks that leak water can
be repaired using our spa shell repair kit, but major
damage or wear and tear from the sun resulting in spider cracks
cannot. Spa shells generally last about 30-40 years.
- Frame and Cabinet
Spa frames are normally just wood. The cabinets are usually wood or
plastic. Frame damage is usually catastrophic to the spa, as a broken frame
usually quickly results in a broken shell. If you catch it early
enough it may be possible for a carpenter to repair the frame.
Cabinet damage is usually cosmetic - we don’t sell material to
repair or replace the frame or cabinet. Sometimes replacement parts
are available from the spa manufacturer. Sometimes damage can be
fixed by a carpenter.
Spa covers are a major wear-and tear-item that require
replacement every few years. Look for the ASTM safety rating when
buying a cover as well as high insulation values and always use tie down
straps and locks to prevent accidental drowning.
All electrical and plumbing parts we sell are intended for installation by a licensed electrician or licensed contractor.
