Hot Tub Warranty Void Risks: Chemicals, Mods, Installation

hot tub warranty void

Warranties are an important consideration for many high-value purchases we make in our lives, and a hot tub purchase is a great example. If you've recently purchased a hot tub, one of your top priorities in its basic care and upkeep should be ensuring you never do anything that may void your warranty - and there are a few common examples to steer clear of.

At Hot Tub Factory Outlet, we're happy to offer the best selection of hot tubs and swim spas in Salt Lake City, including detailed information on any warranty coverage that comes with all of our products. While every warranty differs somewhat based on manufacturer and other factors, this two-part blog series will look at some of the most common ways you can void a hot tub warranty, whether intentional or otherwise.

Chemical Misuse or Imbalances

Chemicals are a regular part of hot tub upkeep, and while they're necessary for proper sanitization, they can also damage the inner workings of your spa if used incorrectly. The most common chemical mistakes that will void a warranty include:

  1. Using too much sanitizer: When it comes to chemicals like chlorine or bromine, more isn't necessarily better. Over-dosing your hot tub with these products can cause damage to the shell and internal parts, leading to expensive repairs.
  2. Allowing pH levels to get too low or high: Proper water balance is crucial for efficient spa operation and longevity. Allowing your hot tub's pH level to get too high or low can cause corrosion on metal components, meaning they'll have a shorter lifespan than intended.
  3. Using non-authorized chemicals: In order to protect their products, hot tub manufacturers typically recommend specific brands or types of chemicals for use in their spas. If you disregard these recommendations, any damage resulting from the use of unauthorized chemicals may void your warranty.

Non-Authorized Modifications

While certain upgrades or modifications can enhance your hot tub experience, not all are considered warranty-friendly. For example, installing a non-authorized cover lift or adding extra jets could cause unnecessary strain on internal parts, resulting in damage that may void the warranty.

If you're thinking about modifying your hot tub in any way, it's best to consult with the manufacturer or your trusted hot tub dealer first to ensure that any changes won't void your warranty.

Unqualified Installation

One way to void your hot tub warranty from the very beginning is by attempting to install it yourself without the proper knowledge and experience. Not only can this cause damage to your hot tub, but it may also invalidate any warranty coverage you have. Always hire a qualified professional for hot tub installation to avoid any potential warranty issues.

In part two of this blog series, we'll discuss some more common ways that you could accidentally void your hot tub warranty.
