Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity

I have a new home (1yr). It is almost time for the 1 yr warranty. The one problem is that the jacuzzi always runs out of hot water. I have a 40 gallon capacity hot water heater. I don't use the jacuzzi anymore becuase of this problem.I believe I need to ask the builders to install a larger capacity water heater. Am I correct speicications-wise?

Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub.  Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.

Newly installed jacuzzi only has hot water for about 30 seconds, then water is tepid only.


This issue will have nothing to do with the jacuzzi tub. You will find the problem exists in the way your home was plumbed by the plumber.
Somewhere there is a clog in the water line going to the hot water faucet.
Find that and you will solve your problem.

Jacuzzi hot tub, Water is too hot. Heats until it trips the system. I have replaced the analog temperature control,


1) Safety question first
Why hasn't the GFCI tripped.
If your spa is not protected by ground fault., then you are at serious personal risk.

2) Replace the element.

3) If element is cracked, it can continue heating to ground wire, causing runaway heating.
This applies to spas, and water heaters of all type.

We have a hot tub or jacuzzi inside or on the side of our pool. We had a new heater installed. The jacuzzi should heat up very quickly but now the pool tech claims the drain from the jacuzzi is blocked,...


Is the equipment to heat and filter the hot tub separate from the pool equipment or do both bodies of water share a common heater and filter pump? In most cases they share a pump and heater with valves that direct the flow of water depending on how the pool owner wants to use the pools.

The first thing you need to determine then is if the equipment is working properly. Is there flow of water to and from the spa? If so, is the heater burner kicking on? If it is running, is it running properly with sufficient gas pressure, 3-4" tall bright blue flames and stays on continuously during the heating cycle for the spa?

What is 'very quickly' for the time to heat the water? In other words, if everything appears to be operating normally but the water is not warming fast enough or at all how much time is elapsing before deciding the heater is not working?

How old is this equipment and how much experience do you have with this pool tech or the company they are from?

Hi,
No you cannot safely increase the output of a tankless water heater. The alternatives would be to install a heater in your Jacuzzi or to add a tank type water heater to hold water for the tub and then run the haot water from the tankles into the tank. This way all the tank is doing is holding water for you to use and not heating it. Kinda defeats one of the purposes of having a tankles though.
Only other option would be to exchange the tankles for a higher ouput one. Also an exspensive option.

Jacuzzi whirlpool hot tub, flashes Fl-1 has new filters,


Sounds like a bad heating element. This is located in a stainless steel tube under or around the main control box behind the cover around the tub. It is not hard to replace but should be done by a pro. The part is avaliable online.

The cover needs to be closed completely to keep the heat in the cabinet. No problem.
