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 will not reach temp pumps do run?


If your hot tub is running but NOT heating then you need to look at a couple of things.
First, on the topside, is the heat indicator light on?
If it is on and the tub is not heating then the temp sensor or the high limit sensor is not working and need to be replaced.

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.
