If your bathtub spa jets suddenly cease to work, take the following steps:

1Check the electrical panel’s circuit breaker to see if it has tripped. If it has, reset it.

2If that isn’t the problem, consult your owner’s manual to see if the pump has a “high limit manual reset” or a separate circuit breaker on the equipment. If it has either of these, try resetting it.

3Spa jets still don’t work? Turn off the spa’s electrical circuit and call a repair person. The problem could be anything from a loose wire to a faulty float switch to a bad pump. (When the repair person arrives, be sure to let him or her know you’ve turned off the circuit.)
