Rapid Heater for Jacuzzi

I just installed an AMIGA PLUS Jacuzzi bathtub that came with a Rapd Heater. When I turn on the jacuzzi, the heater light doesn't come on. I checked to make sure the breakers didn't pop and they didn't. Is the light supposed to go on with the heater is on? (I am assuming yes) When does the heater go on, as soon as the jacuzzi jets are going or does it go on when the water temp starts to drop? I can't find info on how the heater works anywhere.
thanks

The light is supposed to be on when the tub is full of water and the pump comes on. Make sure the heater is plugged into a seperate breaker, it cannot be on the same line as the pump.
Look on the heater for a label. If your heater is installed on the discharge side of the pump it should say "pressure heater" on it. If it is installed in front of the pump it should say "Vacuum Heater" on it.
Once installed, fill the tub with water and turn the pump on. If it is installed in the correct position the light will come on when the pump turns on.

Can Jacuzzi Rapid Heat inline heater be installed upside down?


You do not want to install any heater upside down because if any debris gets inside the heater pressure switch while it is running it will NOT shut off once the pump shuts off.

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.

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.

Rapid Heat Bath Heater - indicator light on but not heating water


Bathtub heaters will not produce the heat out a the jets like you would feel coming out of a return jet in a swimming pool.
Bathtub heaters will ONLY maintain whatever temperature water you put in there. they only heat 1-2 degrees an hour. that is for a 1500 watt heater. Many heaters today are only 650 watt or perhaps 700 watt.
