SOURCE: I bought a old hot tub that utilizes a timer and

It is very easy to trace an air switch...go to the control panel and find where the air switches connect. put it in a cup of water and start pressing switches to see which one is which (bubbles). Make sure that they are dry before you reconnect them. Try switching the air hoses and then pressing the corresponding switch to turn on a function.

SOURCE: Spa tub motor need replacing

I havent seen to many motors this old, but today all you really need to know is the horsepower and the frame (either round or square). Pull the old one off and take it to a pool store, and they can probably get it for you.

Also..im not sure but i think A.O. Smith bought out magnetek some years back....

SOURCE: QCA Opal hot tub display reading OH.

The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.

SOURCE: Jets don't work in the jetted tub.

First the obvious, most are electrically connected to a ground fault device, ether an outlet or a breaker. BEFORE ADDING WATER, check these out to make sure they are not tripped. Most all tubs have a minimum water level which must be reached before the jets will operate. This is usually a piece of trim located above the depth of the jets. Make sure the tub is filled to cover this part. If you cant identify the water level device fill the tub so that all the jets are covered by an inch or 2. Some tubs have push button switches or touch pads to control the motor, some have touch sensitive trim. There may be some sort of medallion from the maker on the tub, simply touching it will start the tub. Once you get it going most tubs have a built in timer that turns off the pump in 15 - 20 minutes. For more tub time just hit the switch again but keep in mind that extended exposure in a hot tub can mess with your blood pressure and cause you to loose balance or pass out, hence the 20 minute timer.

SOURCE: how to remove jet rings on jetted tub

It depends on the brand of jet and tub, if it is a gold or silver trim ring, they will generally pry off with a screwdriver, just be careful not to damage the tub when doing so. When prying, move the screwdriver around the jet an inch at a time, just like opening a can of paint. Some rings will screw on, but most just pry off.

I need to know how to clean the jets in our eljer spa tub


Cleaning your Tub
There are several options for cleaning the piping on a jetted bathtub.
The reason you have a residue on the bathtub surface when you are done bathing is because there is bacteria built up in the plumbing of the jetted tub. In order to remove that and reduce the amount of "yucky stuff" coming into the tub when using it, we recommend a regular usage of a jet cleaning product about once every couple of months
Here is a link to the cleaning products I can find right now. There may be other out there that I am not aware of but I do know these products work well in all jetted bathtubs.

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets


The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

Regarding a 30x60 indoor jetted tub (Jacuzzi). When I push the on/off button, the pump slows down but then a few minutes later starts again on its own when there is no water. Any idea what is going


IF that is the one I recall, the switch is not connected to the tub. When you press the button, it sends air pressure to the switch under the tub to activate it;. You need to check the tubing and the switch

I have a Swirl Bath jetted tub that decided to start running on it's own. The motor has a air actuated timer switch that I suspect is the problem. I've looked for the switch in multiple sites without any...


The switch is avaliable online, it is a very common failure, sometimes the switch will stay on and not shut off, sometimes it is the other way around. If the pump is accessable the switch is easy for most handymen to switch out. Be sure to unplug the pump before starting the job. Type is Jacuzzi air switch in google and take you pick of suppliers. the switch can cost 20 to 30 dollars depending on the supplier.

Whirlpool tub, jets come on and won't shut off. No water in tub.


Is it a jetted tub, or a air bath tub with holes or jets in the floor? If it has holes or jets in the floor, the control box is bad and needs replaced. If it is a jetted tub, there may be a water level sensor, if so the sensor may be bad causing the tub to turn on.
