What do I do if my GFCI Breaker Keeps Tripping?

You can first try unplugging each of the most common elements dealing with your breaker: the heating element, the ozonator (if you have one), and the blower or air pump. Unplug each individually to find which may be the culprit. First, disconnect all your hot tub components from the GFCI breaker. Reconnect each element to the GFCI breaker and check to see if it trips. If any of them cause your GFCI breaker to trip, it may need replacement.

What do I do about a Noisy Pump? Is my Pump Broken?

If your pump is making squealing or growing sounds, you can first try opening the valves near your pump or clean or replace your filter to remove any clogs. You may also want to check the water level.

It is also likely your pump needs a replacement.

How do I Fix a Low/Weak Water Flow or Weak Jets?

There could be multiple reasons causing this: a clogged filter, a low water level, an airlock, or broken jets.

clogged filter is a dirty filter. If you are experiencing a weak or low water flow out of your jets, this could mean your filter needs either cleaning or a replacement of a new filter.

Check your water level. If your water level falls below the skimmer level, (where the micro filter is placed) then you could have issues with the strength of your water flow.

There is an airlock. This means that air could have gotten into the plumbing line and is blocking water from flowing properly. This can happen when you drain, refill, and clean your hot tub water. If your jets do not work after you do this, there may be an airlock. One way to fix this is opening your valves and turning your jets on low for 10-20 seconds then on high for 10-20 seconds and repeat until the flow returns to normal. If this nor any other methods above do not work, you can call a professional to come help.

Another possibility is that your jets are broken. Check all nozzles to see if any debris is blocking water flow. If jets appear to be worn out, this could also mean you need to replace your jets.

How Long Should I Stay in my Hot Tub

Generally, 15-20 minutes is the perfect amount of time to soak no matter what time of day. 15 minutes pre or post-workout, in the morning before work, before you go to bed, on the weekends with friends and family, etc. Just 15 minutes a day can make a difference in the quality of your life.

How Often Should I use my Hot Tub?

The key to benefiting the most from your hot tub is to find a regular routine for when you soak. For every person that routine can vary. The optimal usage is at least once or twice a day. It could be at the beginning and end of your day. It could be before and after work. It could be after your workout and before you go to bed. There are many different combinations. Find what works best for you. Start with one type of routine and consistently do this for the next 2 weeks. If you feel that your energy, pain levels, mentality, stress, or other qualities of your life have been improved by this, keep it up! Switch it up and try other times of the day. Try that for 2 weeks. Is your new routine better? Experiment.

What are the Health Benefits of Using a Hot Tub?

How do Hot Tubs Help with Stress/Anxiety?

Soaking in a hot tub is one of the most soothing and relaxing properties for your body and mind. We all know that feeling of sitting back into a tub of hot water and that instant relief of your stresses from the day washing away down the drain. The hot water in hot tubs opens up your blood vessels, allowing that tension built up in your body from stress to dissolve. 

Can Hot Tubs Improve Sleep?

Yes they can. Having trouble falling asleep or getting that full 8 hours of rest? A simple dip in the hot tub for only 15-20 minutes before bed helps wind you down for the night and prepare you for a restful sleep. The water, jets, and any other added relaxing effects during your soak will calm your body and drift you off to a peaceful state. Studies show that relaxing in hot water before bedtime induces a much deeper, longer sleep.

Can a Hot Tub Improve my Cardiovascular Health?

Absolutely! Soaking in your hot tub decreases blood pressure and increases heart rate. Making a routine out of dipping into your hot tub for 10 minutes or so every evening can decrease your risk of heart problems. Naturally, the feelings of relaxation and the opening of blood vessels to circulate better will improve your blood pressure. Doing this daily can help you long term. Hot water moves blood from the extremities to your central heart area, thereby increasing the amount of blood to your heart. This increase in the volume of blood allows for easier circulation throughout your body, meaning bringing more oxygen flow to your body, which allows your lungs, muscles, and heart to function more efficiently. In addition, improved circulation helps you avoid potential diseases and sicknesses.

How can Hot Tubs Help with Soreness and Injuries?

Many athletes or anyone who exercises are encouraged to hop into a hot tub immediately after a hard work out. Why? Because hot tubs begin that relaxation process in your muscles to help soreness. It is a recovery method. The hot water actually loosens your tightened muscles from the workout, making it a great injury prevention practice for future hard workouts. Continuously pounding your muscles workout after workout without allowing them to relax leads to injury. They need recovery and a hot tub is a perfect antidote. For further reading, read our article about some different exercises you can do in swim spas or some stretches you can do in the hot tub.

Can Hot Tubs Reduce Arthritis Pain?

Arthritis causes chronic joint pain and swelling, reducing your range of motion. Studies have shown that using hydrotherapy with your hot tub on a daily basis temporarily relieves arthritis joint pain. There have been people who experienced a significant reduction in pain after only a few weeks of using a hot tub.

Can Hot Tubs Help with Back Pain?

Yes. Those who suffer from chronic back pain can see a huge improvement from spa therapy. Using special spa jets for your lower back can greatly reduce your pain.

Can Using a Hot Tub Burn Calories?

Yes it can. Combining both a daily exercise routine and finishing it off with a 15-20 minute soak in your hot tub helps burn off calories in a healthy way. In only 20 minutes, you can burn up to 17 calories in your hot tub. All of the other effects from a hot tub such as relaxation and dopamine production are important to losing weight.

What Exercises can I do for Back Pain in my Swim Spa?

One of the benefits of using a swim spa is that it is specifically built for exercise, which will help heal your joints and muscles that ache, hurt, or just need strengthened in the most natural way. Unlike regular pools, swim spas use powerful river jets that give your torso support and buoyancy so that you can more easily swim and have that optimum resistance workout. Read about 4 strengthening exercises you can do for back pain.

What is Hydrotherapy and How can It Help Me?
