Spa pool burping

Trying to burp the air out. I can't seem to get it to work. I fitted a new heater. Pool was empty. Had it going till I played with temperature control panel. Then it stopped with FL, flow low I think.
How can I burp it. Please help

I hope I can send some help to you from the other side of the globe. I work at a hot tub factory in the states and the most common failure on your type of pack is the pressure switch. I know it's mounted on the top left of you spa pack on the heater barrel thanks to your video. If the pressure sensor goes bad it can shut down the entire spa. I'm almost positive that you don't have an air lock based on your video. Pull the 2 leads off your pressure switch and use a wire to bypass the sensor. If the spa kicks on you know it's the sensor. FYI, if this works DO NOT run the spa without the pressure switch because it can be a fire hazard. Use that trick for diagnostic purposes only!!!!

    I tried by passing pressure switch but that didn't work. That came with the new heater so I would think it would be fine.
    Yeah, got the spa running. Refilled, and wouldn't go. Put hose in jets, got lots of bubbles, still no go. Got a bit more air out. Still nothing. Pulled bottom wire of pressure switch, and wham it went. Put wire back on and still going. Water start of @12c, I've only set to lowest 19,see if will stop/start again once at 19c. If dose will crank up the heat. Crossing my fingers. Could be the pressure switch, it's new but would try the old one if it plays up again. Or try the wires around the other way maybe but I'm sure they are the right way. Red at bottom and black on top. Took photos before I pulled to bits.
    I emptied the pool and fill from the filter, last time I just put hose in pool, didn't make a difference. It's got me buggered but here's hoping it continues to work? I'll repost the outcome.
    Thanks for your input.
    Oh yeah, the screen fault showed "FL" what I could find out on net was only "LF"memeaning Low Flow. FL has me stumped. Could be the same?

Pull the cover off the control panel. You will probably find a button which would be accessible from outside the panel with a paper clip or pencil but is unlabeled. On the board itself by the button, in small letters it should say "reset". Push the button and see what happens.

SOURCE: i have a Raypak Digital Millivolt pool/spa htr which stopped heat

Don, I suspect the error message is the cause of your problems. A flow error is either real (low flow) or not (bad flow switch). Either way, you get the error code displayed. Always take the filter out of the equation first to make sure it's just not a dirty filter causing the issue. A sand filter can be placed in the "bypass" position or a filter cartridge could be removed. Restart the pump and see if the error code goes away. If it does, clogged filter, real flow problem. Clean / replace the filter. If it does not go away, locate the pressure switch, pull off the two leads and jump them together. If the code goes away, false problem, bad switch. Replace it. Rob

SOURCE: pool heater is not working properly

So I assume you have pressed the button by pool to select the pool thermostat? If this doesn't work sounds like another mother board problem, or try powering down the unit a few minutes then restart. IF you haven't pressed the pool button, the read this: The heater comes factory set at 78° F. for the pool mode and 100° F. for the spa mode. If it's in spa mode it's trying to get to 100F. Using the up and down arrows,you can set the thermostats to a minimum temperature of 65° F., or a maximum of 104° F. If you desire to heat only one
body of water, the thermostat is capable of an off mode. As an example, if you only wish to heat the pool and not the spa simply depress and hold the spa down arrow, and the thermostat will lower its setting to 65° F. then go to an off mode.

Pool pump surges water no steady flow


Check your water level, skimmers and weir gates, and the o-ring on the pump lid where the basket is. Air is getting in somewhere between the pool and the pump basket.

Burp air bubble coolant system of dodge neon 1998


I don't believe you have air in your system. It sounds like a sticking thermostat to me. But you better figure it out quick those neon motors don't like big temp changes. Your playing with cracking or warping the head. Any way here's what i know about burping.
When you drain & refill a cooling system air is often traped in places like the heater core. If so the coolant level will appear full before it really is. To burp you need to add coolant till full or just over. Adjust the heater control to MAX heat. This will let full force of water pump to push air out of heater core. Fan speed dose not matter. Next start the motor & let it idle. As it warms up the thermostat will begin to open and close. This is when you should see fluid level drop as trapped air is pushed from system ( add fluid as needed). If this is working right you should fell quite hot air coming from heat vents. If air doesn't seem hot enough adding RPM by pulsing gas pedal should do the trick. And that should do it.

Just bought house with aqualink pool spa, one of our teenagers pushed the buttons, we dont know which one and the spa has emptied and the pool is full and we dont know how to get the water back in the spa...


You cannot drain the spa using the indoor controller, unless the valves out at the equipment are set wrong. go to the outside pannel and put the system in" service mode"(using the button on the left). then push the button on the right till it says "spa fill".There are 2 "accuators" (or automated valve turners) They are black rectangular boxes connected to the water valves. Use the toggle switches on the side to turn the vales to the correct positions. You want the pump to **** from the pool and return to the spa. Now turn on the filter pump and let it run till the spa is full. Put the system back in "auto mode" and you are done.
