On/Off switch for Hydro Systems whirlpool tub suddenly just does not work. Do spa tubs usually have separate circuit breakers? Nothing else in house is tripped.
If in fact it is switch that is broken, I have no clue as to how to try to repair, and cannot find list of authorized local repair services for Hydro Systems.

There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:
3. Grime and dirt
To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.
Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.
The switch is located on the back of the pump. If you have access to the pump and you can see the tube coming out of the black box on top of the pump you might have a chance of changing it without pulling the tub, If you do not have access to the pump, one will have to be made or pull the tub for repairs. If the pump can be removed this might also make the repair go easier. The switch is available at most pool or spa stores. If you are uncertain about doing this repair call a Jacuzzi certified repair technician to do the job.
alot of times if you call the tub builder they have service guys who will come and fix your tub. most tubs have a 3-8 year warrenty against defects so you could get the fix for free. if not you can always try and get fiberglass resin and mix a batch up and seal the cracks yourself
Is it a jetted tub, or a air bath tub with holes or jets in the floor? If it has holes or jets in the floor, the control box is bad and needs replaced. If it is a jetted tub, there may be a water level sensor, if so the sensor may be bad causing the tub to turn on.
If it stopped working suddenly check the GFCI to see if it tripped. If you think it may be a sediment problem go to a pool and spa store, they have cleaners that can help. In most cases salts won't cause it to stop working.
the easiest thing (maybe) is to install an air switch kit on the side of your tub. Here is a link to the part. Basically you install an air button on the side of the tub, install the air tubing from the nipple on the underside of the air button to the nipple on the box that plugs into an outlet under the tub. The pump plugs into that same box and the air tubing from the air button pushing onto the nipple on the box. When you push the button on the tub it will turn the pump on/off. Air Switch Kit
whirlpool tub has jets that circulate the water, where an air bath uses bubbles that rise gently from the bottom of the tub. Whirlpools are typically used for therapy, air baths are used for a much gentler experience. Air baths can be used with aromatherapy/essential oils. Both offer a spa-like experience.
