Hot Tub

A homeowner was not able to determine if the water in his hot tub was boiling or whether the jets were running, so he stuck his hand in the water and suffered burns. ARCCA was asked whether the water could have boiled. Our mechanical engineer inspected the hot tub, focusing on the circuit board, and he found a short circuit that allowed the heating unit to remain on unchecked, thereby bringing the water to a boil.
