How do I know if my hot tub has an airlock?
As mentioned above, the most common sign that your hot tub has an air lock is the jets not working when powered on. This can include nothing coming out of your jets when they are turned on or even a humming sound coming from the jets or pump.
Why does my hot tub keep circulating?
One potential problem could be the tub’s thermostat timer. If the timer is faulty or incorrectly set, the tub may continue to run all the time. Another possibility is that the heating element of the hot tub has burned out. This, too, will cause the pump to run constantly.
Will an airlock clear itself?
Airlocks do sometimes fix themselves, but it isn’t a risk worth taking. Airlocks occur when air becomes trapped in the hot water or central heating system. Vapour becomes caught in a high point of the pipework because the gas is less dense than the water in the system.
How do I know if my hot tub circulation pump is working?
CIRCULATION PUMP IS MAKING NOISES One of the best things about a hot tub circulation pump is quiet operation; they make almost no noise. Gurgling, humming or grinding noises on a spa circulation pump are good indicators of a problem.
Should hot tub jets always be on?
In most cases, yes; you should leave your hot tub on 24/7. It is important to keep in mind that using your hot tub inconsistently does not mean you should turn it off. You need to leave it on all the time. It takes more energy to heat the hot tub than it does to leave it running all the time.
How do you keep an airlock from filling up in a hot tub?
One of the easiest ways to prevent hot tub air lock is to purge air from the lines as you are re-filling the hot tub. Instead of dropping the hose directly into the tub, stick the end of the hose into the filter well, and leave all jets completely open.
What temperature should I keep my hot tub when not in use?
Hot tub temperature when not in use If you’re not going to be using your hot tub for an extended period, avoid turning it off completely and keep it at a lower temperature of around 30°C. Turning off your hot tub isn’t necessary as this can use more energy when reheating it and will be less cost efficient.
Should I leave the pump running on my hot tub?
Since your hot tub pump circulates the warm water as well as the sanitizer, a general rule is to follow manufacturer recommendations or leave the pump on for a minimum of eight hours per day. Making sure your hot tub is ready when you are is the ultimate in relaxation—let your hot tub pump do its thing, then soak away.
How do I know if my hot tub circuit board is bad?
You should see 220 volts. If you do not, then the circuit board is faulty and will need to be replaced or sent to us for repair. If you do see 220 volts and it is not heating then the heating element is defective and will need to be replaced.
How do you fix an air lock in a water pump?
In order to blast the air lock out of position all you have to do is open the two taps (the main tap and the air locked tap) and allow the pressure of the mains water to force the air back out of the locked tap. Leave to run for several minutes and then make sure to turn off the air locked tap first.
How do you get air out of water pump?
All you need to do is to switch on your water pump, allow the water to circulate, then turn on the farthest faucet from the pump. When the water stops sputtering and you have a continuous stream of water, then all air is out of the pump.
