    Quick hot tub question

    Hope somebodyís awake that can answer a quick question. My daughter and I were in the hot tub (bull frog). It lost all power and popped the GFCI. I canít get it to reset. Guess somethingís wet. But itís Saturday night at almost midnight. Not sure i can get it dried out. Will call the repair man tomorrow. But tonight itís supposed to get down to 0 degree F. Am I going to be ok to cover everything up until morning or do I need to try and do something tonight? Thanks

    Covered it up and found an old reading light with a 60 watt bulb that I turned on and put inside the front cover underneath the tub. Hopefully that keeps things from freezing underneath. If not Iíll be doing the above.

    GFI breakers get weak over time. How old is it?


    I had to replace mine about 2 years ago.

    Quick hot tub question

    Fairly new install. Maybe only 4 months. I was able to reset it this morning. We
    must have gotten some water somewhere it shouldnít be??? You would think a hot tub would be sealed up pretty tight. Surprised how warm it stayed. Water was still at 98 degrees. Had some good help checking it out this morning. Click image for larger version.

    Set up a good fan or blower to dry the inside of the cabinet and electronics well.

    Give it a try after a good drying out of everything.
