When Your Hot Tub Freezes . . . Now the Work Begins. It's Not Hard... Just Work.  This Page Will Help

 
Your Hot Tub Froze.... What to do? 

A spa that is damaged by freezing usually leaks in at least one of these areas: 1. The heater coupling, 2. The pump coupling, 3. The pump, 4. A discharge manifold, 5. A lower jet, or 6. Anywhere in the piping.

First, do NOT assume you have a broken piping until you thaw the spa and see if it leaks. Exception is if you can SEE the break. I have seen spas I was sure would need new pipes and only a minor part was broken. So thaw the spa and see what leaks. (also remember you will have to figure out what went wrong since the spa shut down and froze)

Once you have the spa thawed, now begins the Sherlock Holmes search. The equipment area is first search and most common parts failed. Second, remove the side panels and look. On many older spas you have a full access to piping/jets once insulation is removed. On newer spas with spray foam, you hunt is harder. Remember water flows... often away from the leak. So you will see a pool of water on one corner but the water leaked elsewhere and the water flows and pools there.

Once you ID what the freezing has damaged, you will find most parts here:
