If you are fortunate enough to own your own hot tub you might have wondered about servicing.  There isn’t the same requirement for hot tub servicing as there is for your car.  There are not any serviceable parts in your hot tub as the components are units and do not need oil etc.  That being said, it can be a good idea to check over your hot tub once a year to try and detect any potential issues before they become a problem.  Of course, as with everything, you can perform these checks yourself.  If however you are short of time, or would like the trained professionals to give your hot tub a MOT, we are always on hand to help.

What things should you check for?  Here is our hot tub servicing to do checklist:
