Used hot tubs or jacuzzi (ג’קוזי) spas wear out like anything else. Many people buy a spa or for the very first time and within a period of years decide to sell it. Most never take the time to service the spa and worse, never use an exterminator. Underneath the tub is the perfect climate for ants, rodents, mice, rats and even snakes! Rats really love the foam insulation and nibble away creating all kinds of potential leaks that usually show up once the hot tub is moved. That is where you come in. You move the spa, connects the electricity, fills the tub with water and “Lo and Behold”. Now a spa technician is summoned. At $85 to $150 per hour plus parts and as much as $1500, the spa is ready. But wait! The pump goes out only after a few weeks or months and the spa technician is called back and another unexpected charge.
Take the time to look under the spa. What is underneath? If you see bits and pieces of foam, stop and step away slowly until you are back in your car. Never buy a used hot tub or jacuzzi (ג’קוזי) spa on impulse. You will live to regret it. Do your research and then make a wise choice.
