How do you remove the cover for the water intake on a hot tub? It's a cool nights CN10000 but I imagine they are all similar? There isn't a screw holding it on and I'm not sure if I should pry on it or twist it and it needs to be removed for proper cleaning. Of course, the manual is useless.

The best ways to know if you need a new spa cover or hot tub cover are the following:
The hot tub cover weighs over 100 pounds.
You need more then one person to remove the hot tub cover.
The hot tub cover is ripped and torn past repair.
Faded cracked and just aesthetically ugly.
The seam in the middle is ripped past repair.

This may help?
Fill spa to highest level possible.
Heat to 100 degrees or higher.
Then, with your bare hand feel throughout the bottom rim and anywhere else you are able to: see if you can feel "Warm/Hot" water. Any "Cold" water is not the area of the leak, that water has "Travelled" there. The warmer the water, the closer you are to the origin.
Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is
overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water
temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a
variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot
tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub. Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures. Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat. Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature
FL could be a code for low flow. If you have no circulation this sounds like it. If your pump runs and you have no flow you could have a problem with your pump. Or if you have the tub drained then it could be an air lock, if you open the drain valve till you get water out that should fix that. Also check to be sure the isolation valves are open under the spa. I hope this helps.
Sounds like the screen that is at the hot and cold water intake has moved into the selenoid valve.
You may want to remove the valve and inspect it for pieces of screening. You should be able to run it under the sink faucet to clean it.
If that is not the problem, then order a replacement (they are fairly cheap and VERY easy to replace)
most inlet water hoses have screens in them. You could remove the hose from the back of the washer and see if there is water flow. If there isn't, the hot water valve assembly is defective. These are solenoid operated valves that admit water into the tub. They can be accessed behind the washer after you remove the back.
If this is an electric unit, you have to remove the cover to locate the thermostat. It sounds like the thermostat is malfunctioning. The excessive hot water can cause a unit to leak due to the expansion of the unit due to the overly hot water. Make sure that your breaker is off before you remove the covers to expose the thermostat.
you probibly ran the hot water tank out of hot water shut off the hot water comming out of your fausets for a few hours and check it again u could also try to reset your tank by pulling off the front cover and hitting the reset button and my last thought is sadly you burnt out your heating elements and they need to be replaced good luck man
