Q:

How much does a hot tub weigh when empty?

A:

In general, empty hot tubs can weigh anywhere from 400 to 700 pounds. A 700-pound hot tub is usually designed to hold about 600 gallons. When full, a hot tub of this size weighs about 6,000 pounds and has space for six average-sized adults.

Some hot tubs that fall outside of this weight range. For example, the Swim Spa designed by Spa Manufacturers, Inc., weighs about 2,400 pounds and can hold up to 1,200 gallons of water. Spa Manufacturers also sells a smaller 5-foot by 7-foot spa-style hot tub that weighs 300 pounds when empty and can be filled with 150 gallons of water.

    What are some tips for hot tub troubleshooting?

    A:

    Hot tub problems often involve water that is cloudy or algae-ridden, or that has a musty or chlorine-like smell. Cleaning the filter often solves problems with cloudy water and may also help with water pressure issues. Shocking the spa with sanitizer removes most odor problems and may correct the water's pH level to get rid of algae. Adjusting the pH level can additionally solve problems with scale and stains.
