As a service based company, we have repaired and refurbished hundreds of Hot Tubs here in the Fraser Valley. Our commitment has always been to give honest opinions, and to make sure that you are comfortable and confident in any purchase or repair you choose. Although a brand new Hot Tub will not require attention for many years, we strive to protect our customer’s investment, and to minimize expensive maintenance bills down the road.
BENEFITS OF A HOT TUB
For some a Hot Tub is seen as a luxury, for others it is a necessity for a functional life. Aside from being a great addition to your backyard, a hot tub can be a crucial tool for a healthy mind, body and soul. Hot tubs are proven to assist with minor aches and pains, soothe sore joints and muscles, provide therapy for arthritis, tendinitis, and fibromyalgia. Its also a great way to relieve stress. Soak in the morning to start the day off right, or in the evening to melt the day away and get an incredible night sleep.
The average new hot tub can range in price from as low as $5000 to upwards of $20,000! Price of a hot tub can be based on many factors, such as construction, size, equipment, or simply brand name. Unfortunately, in the case of Hot Tubs, just because its higher priced, doesn’t always mean it is a sound investment, and with continued rising costs of living, we want your Hot Tub to retain its value and see you through many years to come.
Most commonly what you will find are Hot Tubs built with un-pressured treated wood frames & insulated with a ½ lbs expansion foam. The skirting we see is often cedar paneling (sometimes a single piece that doesn’t allow any access to plumbing) or synthetic compressed siding. There are variations of this type of construction, but often the majority of companies will use 1 or more of these potentially problematic elements in their manufacturing.
What does that mean for the lifespan of your Hot Tub?
These three scenarios alone or often in combination are what we encounter most often.
1) Your Hot Tub reaches an age where it will require maintenance, and happens to spring a leak.
2) Rodents have made a very comfortable home in the foam, chewing through pipes, making nests, and defecating in your tub.
3) Over many years, the Fraser Valley’s temperate rain forest causing a moist/wet environment has taken its toll on the construction.
When this happens the expansion foam makes it very difficult to identify where water is leaking from, if you happen to notice in time. It also absorbs the water, rendering the insulation value useless. The water being held by the expansion foam then has time to saturate and eventually rot out sections of the frame, and often into the skirted panels. A repair of this nature would require....
- Full day's labour to manually dig out expansion foam
- Materials & labour to replace rot damage
- Parts & labour for a leak repair
- Materials & labour for re-insulation
- Materials & labour for Skirt Reconstruction
Also with rodent damage, any scent left behind is nearly impossible to remove. With the future in mind and the proper construction, the original issue (plumbing leak) could have cost a few hundred dollars and kept the lifespan of your hot tub moving forward, is now estimated in the THOUSANDS to repair. 90% of our customers choose to put their once high end/costly Hot Tub into the landfill.
