What Can You do When the Spa is Not Warm

Coast Spas Reviews has made it its mission to
provide warm, comfortable spas to our customers. What happens when your spa
does not keep a warm temperature? How can you resolve this issue?

May be Able to Fix This

There are a few steps you can take to fix this issue
before calling on professionals like us. Here is a checklist of the most common
reasons a spa does heat up properly.

  1. Too Cold Outside – This is simple enough. If your spa is not designed to work in our Canadian winters, it will not be able to keep its warmth. Lack of insulation, small spa heaters, or small heater elements will either let the warmth escape or will not be strong enough to keep up with our frigid temperatures.
  2. Ill-fitting Spa Cover – Getting your spa fitted with an adequate spa cover will not only keep the water clean from debris, but it will also help with heat retention. Our expert will help you choose and fit your spa cover, as well as help you with essential maintenance.
  3. Not Enough Water – A spa needs a certain amount of water to function correctly. If the water level is too low, the water will not cycle, putting a strain on the pumps and heater elements. Add water regularly to keep the level from dropping too low. Adding water to your spa will make the water colder, however, and your spa will need slightly longer to reheat.
  4. Is the Filter Dirty – By keeping the spa filters clean, you are prolonging the life-span of your spa. This step is crucial and should be taken every 3 to 4 months. Changing the filter every year will keep dirt away from the internal working of your spa.┬áMaintaining a clean filter will also ensure clean water for you to soak in.
  5. Jumping in too Soon – Your spa holds a lot of water, and that much water needs time to warm up. If you have not been running the heater long enough before dipping into your spa, the water may not have had time to warm up thoroughly. If your water is icy, it will take a bit of time before the water gets to a desirable temperature.
  6. Are You Getting Errors – Our spas are intelligent. They will let you know if there is an error in the inner workings. By matching the error code to your user manual, you will be able to determine if you need to call on us, or if you have a low water level. If your water is just not getting warm enough, you may have bad sensors, causing the heater to cycle off prematurely. In this case, give us a call, and we will be happy to send one of our technicians to look into it.
