Why is my Strong Spas not heating properly? How to troubleshoot and fix Strong Spas heater problems

There are a few reasons why a Strong Spas hot tub might not be heating up. Here are some of the most common causes:

  • Dirty filters: Dirty filters can restrict the flow of water to the heater, which can prevent it from heating up the water properly.  Spa Store dot com recommends soaking your filter in chemical cleaner for 24 hours and hose off.
  • Clogged plumbing: Clogged plumbing can also restrict the flow of water to the heater, causing the same problem.
  • Bad heating element: The heating element in your hot tub can eventually wear out and stop working. If this is the case, you'll need to replace the heating element or the entire heater assembly.
  • Thermostat problem: The thermostat in your hot tub controls the temperature of the water. If the thermostat is not working properly, it can prevent the water from heating up to the desired temperature.
  • Low water level: If the water level in your hot tub is too low, the heater may not be able to heat the water properly.  Spa Store dot com recommends filling the spa cover the highest jets.
  • Power outage: If there has been a power outage, the hot tub may need to be reset before it will start heating again.
  • Faulty breaker: If the breaker or GFCI outlet for the hot tub is tripped, the hot tub will not heat.
  • Short circuit: If there is a short circuit in the hot tub, the hot tub will not heat.
  • Faulty control board: If the control board in the hot tub is faulty, the hot tub will not heat.

If you've checked all of these things and your Strong Spas hot tub water is still not heating up, you may need to call a qualified technician to diagnose the problem.
