So what do we do when we come across, or have one of our great southern California customers trade in their Hot Spring Spa for the latest model? Maybe it's seen a few years of service, is a little rough around the edges and needs some TLC, but is otherwise in good shape?
We elevate it to new heights with a comprehensive refurbishing and find it a new home! Here at Inland Empire Hot Spring Spas, we take our hall of fame spas and hot tubs and run them through our restoration program, which produces a near-new spa by the time the last item is checked off our comprehensive checklist.
Just because a mechanical item seems to be running fine, doesn't necessarily mean that it's healthy. In this stage, we check things like proper amperage draw, ground leakage, and check for any electrical components that are showing signs of stress. Here we check the IQ2020 Control Panel, GFCIs, Lights, Control Heads, and heater/pump electrical connections.Text...
All mechanical parts of the equipment are tested to ensure that they are in tip-top shape. Parts that don't meet our standards are repaired or replaced. Here we check the Circulation Pump, the Jet Pump(s), Heater, Control Panel functions and the ozonator, if one is installed, and any other mechanical items that are usually found in the equipment compartment.
Once the mechanical and electrical check out, we fill each pre-owned spa, heat it up and run the pump(s), checking to ensure connections are dry, proper pressure, and that all of the jet functions are working properly. Here we also check circulation hoses, valves, both air and water, water features, and the filter compartment. The filled, heated spa goes through a 24-36 hour wet test to ensure quality operation.
Preowned spas that come our way get their spa cabinet thoroughly inspected, and if necessary, sanded and restained. Many of our customers are "wowed" by how new the hot tub looks at this point. We also go over the surface, bartop, cover locks and base, bringing them up to selling standards. Almost all of our refurbished Hot Spring Spas receive a brand new cover.
