Energy Bill Increasing? Your Windows May be to Blame

No Water From Hot Tub Jets: The Probable Cause & Solution

Are the jets in your hot tub not releasing a sufficient amount of water? There are several different things that can lead to hot tub jets not functioning as it should. Below, learn about malfunctioning hot tub jets and how much a new replacement tub will cost.

Why Do Hot Tub Jets Stop Releasing Water?

One of the reasons for hot tub jets to stop releasing water is from there being too much calcification from limescale on them. The calcification is the result of you having hard water in your home. Hard water is filled with large amounts of calcium and magnesium that can accumulate on the jets each time the hot tub is used. You can get the limescale removed, but it will come back if you don't purchase a system to soften the water.

It is also possible that your hot tub jets are not functioning properly because air is in the plumbing lines that it is connected to. An air lock can be repaired by removing screws that are on the hot tub pump. Once the pump screws are removed, air will automatically come out of the plumbing lines. You can test the hot tub afterwards to determine if the problem is fixed.

Keep in mind that it is possible to turn each individual jet off. Make sure that all of the jets are actually on before assuming that they are malfunctioning. If nothing seems to bring the jets back to a working order, it may mean that you have an old hot tub that should be replaced.

How Much Does it Cost to Replace a Hot Tub?

The price for a new hot tube will depend on what kind you want, such as the capacity and number of jets. A hot jetted hot tub that can seat 7 people can cost an average of up to $7,000. If you want a fancier hot tub that has a lot of features like drink holders, you are looking to spend up to $15,000. If you want an outdoor hot tub installed, it can cost up to $20,000 plus, but will depend on if it is installed in the ground or not.

You don't have to deal with malfunctioning jets in a hot tub because a simple repair may be all that is needed. You can hire a contractor to install new jacuzzi hot tubs though, if the jets are damaged beyond repair!
