Hi curlyall,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have just brought a secound hand spa, you are woundering what sort of chemicals etc are required, there are no instuctions with it

If your spa is the type that you fill once, then you must treat it just like a swiming pool. Go to the local pool supplies store. They will be happy to set you up. Don't forget PH testing kit! Test it every day. And I prefer non chlorine chemicals. It's also helpfull to have a small submersible pump in case you need to replace the water sometime. Happy soaking!

Feel free contact me again!

When I turn on the jets there are a lot of black specks that come out


Sounds like you need a major clean out. There are chemicals that need to be run through, then the water gets flushed and changed. Check with the spa chemical supplier.

Air switch doesn't return to top position


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clear a blocked water intake:
  1. Twist-off or unscrew the intake cover.
  2. Clean the intake cover with an old toothbrush and powdered laundry detergent. Rinse any soap residue from the cover before reinstalling.
  3. Replace the cover.
Replace a jet:
  1. Identify the damaged or inoperative jet and make sure it requires replacement.
  2. Follow the owner's manual instructions for removing the old jet. Some twist out by hand while others require a special wrench.
  3. Find an exact replacement jet (through a pool or spa supplier) and install the new jet.

Jets will not turn on just humms was smoke smelled like something burned.


THAT smell was probably your motor burning up. That happens quite a bit actually however, for you this means you will need a new pump. Get the pump out and look at the pump model and name then you can find the correct solution.

Spa / hot tub does not heat


Your temperature control is way out of calibration or, it's wired wrong. Remove it and check it in a glass of water. Use an ohm meter across the heater wires. As you add hot wwater, the heater contacts should open.

Spa issues


Is the spa inground also? If so you need to turn off the filter return at the pump and use the circulation pump only. this is only a best guess as I am unsure of the pump setup.

The blower turns on intermittenly by itself on my inground spa


It sounds like the circuit board has a bad blower control relay which kicks on intermittenly. If the blower off button is pushed, the blower shuts off, right? Sometimes the problem is in the blower itself, but very rare. The spa should be on a dedicated circuit as stated in the installation manual, no with the pool.

Bathtubs Safety Question?


Yes. They are every bit as safe as your standard bathtub or shower. Unlike outdoor spas or hot tubs (which are similar to swimming pools), your indoor whirlpool bathtub is emptied after each use. There are no chemicals or stored water involved.
