Having a sparkling new hot tub is a great way to elevate the look and features of your entire home and is a wonderful luxury while it lasts. A hot tub is a place to relax and pamper yourself and a place where you can get ‘me time’. When your hot tub looks the part, that only helps to make that even more enjoyable. The only problem is that sparkling new tubs don’t tend to stay that way very long. That first hot tub crack in your hot tub can be devastating for instance but fortunately, acrylic hot tub crack repair is not as difficult as you might expect. Overall, as a hot tub owner, it’s ensuring that you don’t leave hot tub cracks to fester, whereas, not fixing these cracks in a timely manner can become a hot tub safety issue.
Repair Crack in Acrylic Hot Tub
The first way to go about acrylic hot tub crack repair is to get yourself a soft sanding block, a water proof marine epoxy, a set of rubber gloves, a fiberglass mesh, a flashlight, a bowl, a drill and a pair of scissors. Remove the tub and lay it on its side. Drill a hole at either end of the crack in order to prevent the crack growing further. These types of hot tub supplies can be purchased at your at your local Miami spa dealer, All Florida Pool & Spa Center.
Then use the pieces of fiberglass mesh and cut them to be slightly larger than the crack. The pieces should get gradually larger and you’re then going to mix up the epoxy in a bowl. Paste this epoxy between each layer of mesh. Once it is dried, you can sand it off and your bath should operate as normal!
Hot Tub Blister Repair
Sometimes acrylic hot tub crack repair is not the answer. For instance, if your hot tub blisters, then you need to use another spa repair method to try and solve the issue. One such method is called ‘poke and roll-out’, which involves heating the area with a heat gun until a small hole can be made in the top of the surface and the fluid can be drained out. From here, you can hopefully flatten the blister.
Repair Hole in Hot Tub
Repairing a hole in a hot tub can be carried out in much the same way as you would handle acrylic hot tub crack repair. The only difference is that depending on the size of the hole, you may wish to use a piece of acrylic in order to fit the gap. Holes in your hot tub will lead to leaks which can cause water damage or even drainage issues. In this case, it’s best to contact the professionals such as the Miami hot tub repair experts at All Florida Pool & Spa Center to fix your leaking hot tub.
Acrylic & Fiberglass Hot Tub Refinishing
Sometimes a hot tub can simply start to lose its luster, even if it isn’t actually cracked or damaged. Scrubbing with different products, replacing the mastic and sanding down rough edges can all help to solve these problems – but it might not be enough.
