Jacuzzi not getting hot enough

The water is not getting over 90 degrees and they heater is running all the time to try to get it to 101. I just changed the water and the front panel is not shut. Can that cause the heat loss or is there a problem with the heating coil?

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

there is not a thermostat on the bathtub heaters. they only maintain what temperature water you start with. they are capable of heating about 2-3 degrees an hour.

Is it possible to install a small on-demand hot water heater in lieu of an in-line heater for a jacuzzi, so the pump will circulate the water through it? Is there a benefit to this?


Hello, I not sure if your having a problem with your current in-line heater and can't get to it to repair or replace it but, this is the most effective way of heating your tub water without adding water and I say this assuming that the heater is 220 volt and not 115volt. An on demand electric water heater would cost more money to operate then your current unit. A gas on demand heater would not function properly and would fail to provide the hot water you need. If you install a gas on demand water heater and use it to just fill your tub with hot water then you would save money in the long run and be able to use it for your whole house. Hope this information is helpful. If you have more questions please feel free to ask.

Why does it take 12 hours for my tub to heat up. The heater runs for about 3 hours then turns off. I turn off the power, wait 20 minutes and do it again over and over. It only gets about 70 degrees. One...


This is a bathtub heater. it is only 1500 watts. they are not meant to heat the water in a bathtub. They are considered a maintenance heater ONLY.
This style heater will maintain whatever temperature you put in the bathtub. It will only produce about 2 degrees of heater per hour.
solution: start with the water temperature where you want it to be when bathing and this heater will keep it that temperature while the pump is running and the tub is full of water.

The bath heater you have is not designed to HEAT water - they only Maintain what you start with.
You need to start the bathtub with the hot water you want. It will only heat about 1-2 degrees an hour.

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.

you don't have a circulating line in it,, there for it is pulling the hot only,, when you have the 2 systems you have to have it circulationg or take 1 out, it being it is hot water they will vapor lock,, meening no hot water , you could get a circulating pump that actually hooks to the cold and hot side under the sink far away from the water heater and it has a timer on it that will circulate the water at certain times of the day,,, this would solve your problem

Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity


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.
