Chinese hot tubs have been available in the UK for a few years now and there are an ever increasing number of importers/dealers selling them, either from showrooms, on websites and on action sites like Ebay. Chinese hot tubs look rather impressive to the unsuspecting buyer, they're packed full of features, several pumps, loads of jets loads of lights and quite often even a TV. They are also very cheap in comparison to the competition, the prices are so cheap that it's very easy to get carried away and think that you're getting a fantastic deal.
Well the truth of the matter is that you're not getting a good deal at all. Chinese hot tubs are miles behind the competition in terms of quality, reliability and more importantly safety. The prices are cheap, because the hot tubs are cheap!
Over the past year I've had many people contact me with a faulty Chinese hot tub, the first question that I usually ask a customer is, "what make is the hot tub". The response is usually either, "I'm not sure, it doesn't say" or, it's some obscure name that we've never heard of before. As soon as I realise that the owner doesn't even know the maker of the hot tub it sets my alarm bells ringing and 99% of the time it's a Chinese hot tub.
The most common problem that I encounter with Chinese hot tubs has been with the control system. The control systems on these hot tubs are of a very primative design and have been incredibly unreliable. Most of the time, the best solution is to replace the control system with a system made in the USA or Canada like Balboa or Gecko, however, this is not cheap most replacement systems will need a control panel, a topside display and occasionally a replacement pump as many chinese tubs utilise pump 3 for heating and jets.
Replacement systems can range from around £500 to £1500 depending on the spec of the tub.
Don't Wait for the smell of burning, the tripping electrics or the acrid smoke.
Don't put YOUR family and friends at risk, if you have a chinese tub, it could be a ticking bomb.
