"Excellent company! They were timely,smart,fair,flexible,competitive and honest. Of nine firms considered, they were the only ones who were able to provide a" complete job (pool,electric and paving). They dealt with large 3'x3' concrete pavers. As an architect i am very particular, and they did everything right. The owner and staff were hard working and polite. I highly recommend this company!

& Spa has been servicing our pool for nearly 10 years. we've also used them to repair and replace equipment. We have no complaints" about their service, punctuality, pricing, etc. We're continuing to use them and see no need to consider changing to someone else.

My order of preference - first choice a jacuzzi/hot tub repairman (from a jacuzzi/hot tub/sauna distributor), second choice a plumber (many do not work on hot tubs, jacuzzi's and sauna because they cnanot afford to stock parts). An electrician might be able to fix it if it is a connection problem, but such motors are seldom repaired if the problem is internal, just replaced - which would be a jacuzzi repairman/plumber type job.
?

You will have to find out what your model costs new - looks like they run from about $400 to 1700 depending on size. IF yours is at the lower end, might be just as cheap to replace it, with parts and labor. If not low end, then repair probably works. Typical pricing of components that might have gone out - switch $80, timer/control unit $130, heating element $100 (probably most likely to have failed) - so if only one of these went out, figuring $100-200 labor, probably cheaper to fix it. I would contact your dealer for a better idea.

BTW - here is a Saunatec instruction on maintenance on the heating element and rocks, failure to follow can shorten heating element life, if that is what went out (and probably the simplest to replace) -

I'm sorry to say there aren't many of us on here with adequate experience working on pools, myself included.  My suggestion would be to contact a few local companies specializing in pool renovation and have them give their recommendations and bids for the work, breaking down order of operations so you know what to expect at which stages.  Check Angie's List for referrals in your area and cross check those with the BBB for any unresolved complaints.

It is now January 24th. We called
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
about two weeks ago and again recently we were told that the part was on back order and it takes 2-4 weeks to arrive. When it arrives he will fix the spa the same day . Here we are a month later with the spa not fixed, no part and no idea of when the part will be in. Maybe Monday, maybe Friday. Meanwhile we found someone that can get the part and install it within three days. He is licensed and has his own business. Even though we are out of the money for installation and no part (thank goodness we didn't pay for the part) we felt it better to move on and get the spa fixed.

Signed a contract with
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
Nov 11, 2014, the contract stated that work would start within 3 days of a signed proposal(weather permitting). They started work for the first time on Nov 18. That should have been my first indicator to turn around and run and stop payment on my check. The contract also states that the completion date is within 17 days, but to add 10 days if a diamond brite finish is selected, which it was. They drained the pool on the 18th of Nov to start work and the first time that water was put back into the pool was on

The only thing that I can see that his guys did was repair the crack, remove and replace the mastik around the deck, and service the pool itself. There were many delays in this process and not ONE of them was because of weather. If there was a delay, we the customer, had to call

Guess not with these guys, even though their website claims that customer satisfaction is there #1 priority, don't be fooled. The last thing that I want to mention is that we ordered the midnight blue diamond brite and these guys are supposed to be the experts. After they installed the diamond brite and started filling the pool with water, there were long sweeping streaks in the pool finish that never went away. After 3 weeks of waiting for God to apparently take care of it, they drained my pool again and "acid washed" the pool again. Well now the color went from a nice midnight bluish color to a lighter blue and not what I ordered. At this point I wish I had never seen

They closed down my pool the previous season, fall 2013, and then I used them to open my pool in spring of 2014. When they opened the pool, they realized there was something wrong with some of the equipment, but the issue was created by them when they closed the pool. When they went to turn the pool on, there was water leaking out of a pipe as a result of their previous visit. He said he would need to come back another day to fix the issue, and that there was going to be an $85 trip charge to come back out even though they created the problem to begin with. Before they came back out, they called me to update my credit card information, which I went ahead and updated with them thinking they would take care of the fee. They hadn't come back out to do the additional service yet, and I indicated to her when I was updating my card that I was not okay with the fee being charged. He came back out to fix the problem, but I noticed they charged me the $85 fee. I contested the fee with them, and I did not get a refund. Therefore, I quit using them. I tried reaching out to them again at least three times via phone and email, and all three times I got the run around.

The overall quality of the work was excellent. The workers were professional and courteous and did a great job cleaning up after themselves. The timeline was met and the job was finished to our complete satisfaction.
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
, the owner, is not always as responsive as we would have liked and never actually visits the work site (we never actually met him, just spoke on the phone and communicated via email). Additionally, while the job was completed at the promised time, there were times/days where workers did not show up or only worked a few hours rather than a full day. From my perspective, it was a bit frustrating because the job probably could have been done in 5 or 6 days rather than a full 2 weeks. However, the timeline given at the start of the job was 2 weeks and that is when it was completed. Overall, we are very pleased with the job and would utilize them in the future.

Great. We communicated quite a bit by text because of the differences in his schedule and mine. He came, he saw, he diagnosed, he ordered the necessary part and he came back & installed. Our spa had been unusable for quite some time and now it's great!

I informed
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
that my son's home was inspected by the buyer's inspector. The inspector found the pilot not to be lit, so he couldn't test the heater. This heater is an older model Pentair MiniMax Gas Heater for the Spa. The pilot can go out just from wind blowing or moisture (rain) getting on it, but my son wanted it checked to make sure it is working properly for the new buyers and to pass the inspection. My son's AHS Home Warranty was called twice for the same issue...the pilot is out on the heater please send a service person to see why it is going out. The same service company came and lit the pilot. The first time my son doesn't know if they looked at it, the second time my son was home when service tech came. The service tech lit the pilot light and started walking off. My son asked him if he was going to look at the gas heater to see why the pilot was going out. The service tech actually told my son, "No, I'm just here to light the pilot".
I started making calls from Angie's list pool and spa heater repair.
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
was the first person to call me back.
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
spent a lengthy amount of time explaining how the heater works and different scenarios that could be happening as to why the pilot light goes out. He told me that he would go to my son's home on Monday and have a look at it. He also informed me that he is State Certified to work on LP Gas Pool Heaters. I didn't know there was such a thing. Apparently, there are many LP Gas Pool Heater owners that don't know this. A business that doesn't have state certification can be penalized with a hefty fine and other state recourse. Also, if the gas heater is still covered by a manufacturer's warranty and it is serviced by a non-certified company this would void the warranty. I also told
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
about the pool light and that it's not a wire because that has been tried by the same company that was to check the pilot light issue.
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
recommended a company for me to call.
I received a text from
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
that he couldn't come on Monday. He had become ill, but he said if he would come Tuesday. Tuesday he was still very ill. He was began trying to find someone that he knew would do a good job and was state certified. He gave me names and numbers in but everyone was beyond the schedule we needed to have someone come. I couldn't believe
Arlington Heights Pool Cleaners Provider Name Locked
would do this while he was ill. He stated he takes his work seriously, his business is family run and they're proud of their service record..plus he is a little in shock because this usually never happens to him. He felt very guilty which he shouldn't have felt. He texted me several times during the next couple days...even though he was still ill...I told him to get better but he was bound and determined to find someone to help. Someone else was found to repair the gas heater and the company is state certified. :) It's amazing to me because even though I haven't met

We had another company take a look at the our system because the filter had no pressure. They said that we would need to replace the motor and all of the plumbing around it for around $1000. My husband did some looking and found that

had a far better price on the motor and comparable price on labor.
