Hi Pondeli, Great question! Good ventilation is key for a successful indoor hot tub set-up. Also, be sure the floor is tiled and has a drain for excess water to escape. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you, Kaisa The Spa Depot

Thank you for the advise thespadepot. Unfortunately i didnt get a chance to dry out the motor right away, only the mother board which seems pretty dry. I took apart the motor and everything seems to be ok, no corrosion on the copy wires or connections. Bearing seeems to work fine and I will go thru all the rest of the components and spray the CRC and wish for the best. Happy New Year to all!!!

Hello Pete Smyth, This is from one of our Spa Techs: Any submerged motor, such as pumps and blowers, should be replaced as the internals will become corroded in near future. Any ozonator with a light, chip, or circuit board may work for short time, if properly and completely dried out prior to powering them. Any and all electrical boards, relays, sensors, and sensor connections should be cleaned with electrical contact cleaner spray. This will remove any corrosive debris and protect against further corrosion: Description: The CRC 2-26 5 oz. Multi-Purpose Lubricant is a plastic-safe lubricant, penetrant and corrosion inhibitor. This lubricant helps prevent electrical malfunctions and restore damaged equipment caused by water penetration, humidity, condensation and corrosion.

I have a few questions about a Sandy flooded hot tub. Before storm, hot tub was turned off at the breakers and left full of water. Sandy came thru and water was at the hot tub cover level. I decided i should replace the motor (Wavemaster 9000 Version 2) as it was completely submerged in salt water. I replaced the pump last year, but the pump looks water tight. Is there anything else i should replace? I see there is a Fresh Water III High output Ozone Systerm in there as well. Should i replace that as well? The motherboard has been dried out and there is no rust on any of the connections. Thank You for reading this and have a Happy New Year!.
