Exclamation Frozen hot tub

well, I win the Einstein award this year. I let our new hot tub freeze . I got all the water out of the tub before it froze solid but the jets and pipes are froze. Should I try to fill it with warm water now to thaw the pipes or do something else? It's about 25 degrees out today.

Thanks

Well...you can try some warm water, but the damage may already be done. Pipes and fittings as well as pumps don't like to be frozen....they have a tendancy to split..don't ask how I know. Try putting a worklight or something (NOT a heater) in the pump compartment as well. Be prepared to pump or drain it out quickly once the leaks start appearing.
