Got a BLB code on your topside control? SmartTub app saying its time to replace the bulb? Jacuzzi Corp. just released a new video explaining simply how to change your ClearRay bulb. Click the video below and watch how to do it. Remember you can consult your owners manual for help, and after installing a new bulb you should reset the timer for your ClearRay system.
If you don't know, ClearRay is only found on Jacuzzi and Sundance hot tubs and is a fantastic system for killing bacteria by destroying it's DNA cycle and allowing either ozone and/or your sanitizer system to finish it off. Because it's on the inside of the tub, some people may think that it could be a service related request or that it might be difficult. It's really quite simple though and the blb code is no cause for alarm. Simply come to us for your bulb, get 20% off your bulb if you bought your tub with us, and put it in your spa. The bulb timer is 365 days, and it lasts about that long and it can go over, but after a year it loses its functionality and doesn't release the right wavelength of light (UV-C) to kill bacteria. Thus, we have to replace it every year.

The three hot tub chemical issues that damage hot tub covers
Covers are an important component of your spa. They not only keep out debris, but help keep the water insulated and keep heat in. This helps to save on your power bill. Thus, it is important that your cover works efficiently. This can be a challenge since your cover takes the brunt of the beating from the elements. If left uncared for, the vinyl and stitching on your cover can become brittle and begin to crack and break down. Here are a few easy steps from our Service Center to help prolong the life of your cover and keep it working efficiently.
