    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.
