Take Pictures for your Insurance ClaimTake photos of the spa from all angles. Save them then email the photos to your insurance agent.
Immediately Turn off the PowerTurn off the power to the unit at the circuit breaker. If the spa is 120v, unplug it from the outlet. Contact us if you have any doubt.
Review the DamageInspect the electrical connections. You may see burn marks and places that look corroded. Replace anything that looks damaged. Use our Contact for and tell us what type of repair may be needed. Check our spa parts page if you know what needs replacement.
Here is a list of parts that can be affected by water damage:
- Spa Packs
Dry out the spaThe equipment must be completely dry. If some of the electrical equipment is wet, a power surge will damage it further. Use a shop vac to remove any excess water in any of the compartments. Immediately spray the insides with a Mold and Mildew remover.
Leave the door to the equipment area open with a fan blowing inside during dry days to allow moisture to evaporate, and prevent mildew. After it is dry, spray it again with mildew remover - and dry again.
Repairing your Spa CoverCuts, tears, and small punctures can be remedied with water-proof patches. To get started:
- Unzip the vinyl jacket and remove the foam inserts.
- Inspect the plastic wrapping over the foam and patch over all defects, if cracked or broken, it will need to be replaced.
- Next, patch any holes in the vinyl jacket and slip the foam inserts back in the cover.
- Replace broken plastic cover strap clips with new ones.
Refinish and Repair Your CabinetReplacing the wood in your cabinet, if faded, is quite difficult. The easiest plan may be to refinish the wood. Collect the following tools to help:
- Electric Screwdriver
- Sanding Block
- Orbital Sander
Inspect the ShellAfter a flood or storm, vacuum out all the water and thoroughly wipe down the hot tub shell with a non-abrasive non-foaming cleaner. Once it is clean, it is easier to check for damage. Scratches, dents and small cracks can be repaired. If there is extreme damage, it'll need to be replaced.
Once you are back in your home, and your family is safe, give us a call and we can easily assess the damage.
