hot tub warranty void risks

In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some common examples of actions or issues that could potentially void the warranty of your hot tub, and should therefore be avoided.

At Hot Tub Factory Outlet, we're here to offer a wide range of hot tubs, swim spas and various related accessories to clients around Salt Lake City, plus important tips on topics like these. Today's part two of our series will look at some other possible void risks with a hot tub warranty, plus how to steer clear of them and keep your warranty active.

Use of Abrasive Cleaners

Cleaning a hot tub is an important part of its maintenance. However, be cautious when choosing the cleaning products you use. Some abrasive cleaners may cause damage to your hot tub's surface, resulting in a voided warranty. Stick to gentle, non-abrasive cleaners specifically designed for hot tubs to avoid any problems.

For instance, using household cleaners like bleach or ammonia can cause the acrylic finish of your hot tub to become dull and discolored. Similarly, using abrasive sponges or brushes can scratch and damage the surface. If you're not sure which products are safe to use, consult your hot tub manufacturer for recommendations.

Alteration of Model Name, Serial Number or Other Details

If you're considering upgrading your hot tub with additional features or equipment, make sure to consult your manufacturer first. Altering the model name, serial number, or any other details of your hot tub may void its warranty.

Additionally, tampering with the original equipment may lead to damage and malfunctioning, which could result in a voided warranty. Stick to using only approved accessories and make sure any upgrades are done by a professional to avoid any potential issues.

Improper Winterization

Winterizing your hot tub is crucial, especially if you live in an area with harsh winter conditions. Failure to properly winterize your hot tub can result in damage to its plumbing and equipment, which may not be covered under warranty.

Before the cold weather hits, make sure to properly drain and clean your hot tub, and follow the manufacturer's instructions for winterization. This will help protect your investment and ensure your warranty remains valid.

Transportation Issues

Finally, most hot tub warranties are only valid if the hot tub is transported and installed by a professional. Attempting to move or install the hot tub on your own can lead to damage and may void its warranty.

Make sure to follow proper transportation guidelines, including using a sufficiently sized vehicle with proper support for your hot tub. And always have a professional handle the installation process to avoid any issues.

Understanding these potential void risks and taking the necessary precautions can help you maintain your hot tub's warranty and ensure its longevity.
