Hot tubs in Moore and Oklahoma City are the perfect way to relax all year round. However, you do not want to be in a hot tub when the water is too hot. A high temperature is dangerous, which is why you need to know how to troubleshoot a hot tub overheating.

Hot Tub Overheating Troubleshooting

There are a few common causes for water overheating in your hot tub, and you will want to check all of them. If your spa displays an OHH, you will need to turn off the power unless there is an automatic shut off feature in your spa. You can turn it back on to check the temperature after troubleshooting.

Weather

It is perfectly normal during the summer months that the hot tub temperature keeps rising, particularly if it is in the sun. If you are experiencing hot weather, try opening your hot tub’s lid, putting it in economy mode, and reducing the filtration. Providing extra shade can also help in this situation. Remember that you should monitor the hot tub after taking off the lid.

Water Level

A hot tub temperature keeps rising, often because of the water level. If your water level is too low, the temperature can quickly become too high. Ensure that your water is at the recommended level and see if it can retain the set temperature after it cools down.

Filters

Check your water filter. If it is dirty, the water will move slowly, allowing heat to build. Also, make sure that the shut-off valves are open, or the water will become too hot.

Power Outage

Even with safety measures in place, power outages can still cause problems for appliances. Your programming might be affected by a recent outage at your home. You might want to try reprogramming the hot tub.
