First time posting on this forum, thank you all for the wealth of knowledge shared here!!
We are in year 2 of hosting a guest house “spa house” on our property. The spa house has an indoor hot tub and sauna. In addition we have an outdoor hot tub closer to our home uphill.
We decided after a few months of hosting that we needed to LOCK the settings on the hot tubs. We found the filter cycles were getting changed and the temperature was being left either super high or super low. With one guest, the motherboard fried when the hot tub was left at 104 for several days. (A very expensive repair!) Maybe it was just time for it to break, maybe not.
We lock them most importantly because of the extensive use the hot tubs get. We need filters cycling at the highest setting in order to keep the sanitation integrity. Between guests it can be a challenge to rebalance if the filters have not been working properly.
- Does anyone else LOCK the settings on their hot tubs?
- What temperature do you set for your hot tub? (Jacuzzi says 100-102 is most preferred)
- Do you “disclose” the hot tub is preset and locked on your House Rules or elsewhere? (Yep we had a disgruntled guest who never mentioned he wanted a temp change and demanded a discount)
Anything else we should be considering?
Thank you so much for your advice and support.
