If your home owner insurance should covers flood damage, be sure to take photos of the tub from as many angles as possible. Email these photos to yourself and your insurance agent.
Turn off the Power
Cut off all power to the unit; this is most important. Turn off the circuit breaker. If the spa is 120v, unplug it from the outlet. Contact a professional electrician if you have any doubt.
After the powere is turned off open the equipment panel. Take a look at the electrical connections. Check for burn marks and places that look corroded. Replace anything that looks damaged. Contact us to complete any repair - we have access to all parts no matter the make or model.

Dry Out the Entire Tub, and All Equipment
Before you even think about turning on the power, all the equipment must be completely dry. If some of the electrical equipment is wet, a power surge can damage it further. Use a shop vac to remove any excess water in any of the compartments. Immediately spray the insides with a Mold and Mildew remover.
Leave the door to the equipment area open with a fan blowing inside during dry days to allow moisture to evaporate, and prevent mildew. After it is dry, spray it again with mildew remover - and dry again.
