Each hot tub is thoroughly inspected for leaks around the fixtures, jets, pumps, heaters, and pipe fittings. The motor compartment is inspected inside and out using cold water, hot water, high and low pump pressure, and circulation pressure to ensure there are no leaks or drips. If a leak is found we will reseal, replace, or repair the leak and then do another full test to ensure the problem has been addressed. The entire process can take one to two weeks, and once completed we will inspect the areas in and around the tub for water. We then move the tub to ensure there is no water underneath. A hot tub can only be certified if there is no indication of leaks, drips, or standing water.
