Average Cost of Hot Tub Repair

If you have a problem with your hot tub, you might want to know how much the repair will cost before calling in the professionals. However, it is often hard to know what the specific cost will be until a hot tub professional is looking right at your model. Homeowners should expect the cost of repair to fall within the average range of $1,850 to $2,668, but the exact number can fluctuate depending on whether the damage is with the pump, the jets, the digital controls or the heat regulation.

Average Cost of Hot Tub Maintenance

Regular maintenance is required to ensure that your hot tub can be used at a moment's notice year-round. This involves periodically draining the tub, scrubbing the surface and shocking the water with chemicals, and it may be best left to professionals for the average cost of $185.

Common Repairs Needed For Portable Hot Tubs

Portable hot tubs can be a great way to bring luxury and relaxation to any location, but they can also be damaged quite easily. This is especially true for small and inflatable hot tubs, which are some of the most common portable models thanks to their lightweight nature. If there is a tear in the material that causes a leak, repair can easily cost upwards of $230.

Concerns for Wood Fired Hot Tubs

Wood fired hot tubs are an increasingly popular option for homeowners thanks to their rustic appeal. Since they are often sturdily constructed and don't require heat pumps or jets, repairs are infrequent. The most common repair is resurfacing the wood, a project that can take as little as four hours and cost anywhere from $325 to $1,300 depending on the quality.
