Restoring or Repairing a Hot Tub or Spa is a fun project. What I love most about what I do is the sheer variety of projects that I get to work ok. From custom new builds, to “rescue missions” where things have all gone wrong to restoring or repairing hot tubs and spas.
Installing an Air Source Heat Pump to your hot tub is a great way of saving money on your running costs. In this current climate, electricity prices have soared over recent months. Running your Hot Tub on electric alone is not economically viable for most of us.
In this article, I am going to talk about how to fix a noisy hot tub pump. This article was inspired by a friend of mine Paul who I helped today fix his own noisy hot tub pump. Whilst I don’t do on site work, I can never say no to a friend with a hot tub in need 🙂
Correctly sizing a hot tub pump isn’t just a case of plucking a number from thin air. Nor is it the case of just going “bigger is better” there is a little science, well, physics involved.
Configuring a Spa Pack is perhaps the last thing on your mind. I know from my own experience building a tub, getting things done as quick as possible is quite often a priority. You just want to fill it up, heat and get in it. This is the end goal.
“I love it when a plan comes together”. Anyone spot the 1980s popular TV culture reference to the A-Team? Probably my favourite TV program as a child. Perhaps, dare I say it how I got into the whole “DIY thing”. I always marvelled at the inventions the A Team cobbled together. I loved making things as a kid. I still love making and creating “things” today. I remember vividly playing “A-Team” with my younger brother – I was always Hannibal Smith – the “man with a plan”.
With the increase in electricity prices all over the world, we’re all looking for alternative ways to heat our hot tubs. Air Source Heat Pumps are a great way to reduce the cost of your hot tub and allow you to keep using them even after the utility price hikes.
Even on vacation, there is always something to learn about the swimming pool. There is always something that we can “take away” with us in terms of the design, layout, plumbing etc etc.
