Hot Tub Headaches


Our Caldera Spa hot tub headaches. We bought the Kauai tub from the Paradise series.

Ryan stopped by on Friday to see how the hot tub was after the Super Cleanse.

Short answer - not good.

We couldn't get the bromine to register and he didn't have any luck either. No matter how much booster he added, it still registered zero. Go figure.

Grasping at straws, he suggested we empty it and start all over. Said there might be cleansing residue left in the system, preventing the bromine from registering. Not sure how as he rinsed and blew the pipes out pretty well but what the heck, let's give it a shot.

filling a hot tub is right up there with watching paint dry for an exciting Saturday activity!

Ryan had other customers to tend to, so left after emptying the tub for us. Took awhile to refill, then it wouldn't start. Tried priming the pump by turning it off and on several times, but no dice.
