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: hot tub heating is working but pump has stopped

you may have a system that uses a small circulating pump that circulates the water thru the heater to keep water temp at proper level (this is usually the case with hot springs spas and is because it is the most cost effective way to maintain constant water heat without using a full size pump or two speed pump just to push water past the heater core. therefore the issue is you have a problem with your jet pump and it has nothing to do with the circulating and heating portion of the spa. you can check to see if there are any reset buttons in or near the equipment as well as open enclosures to make sure everything is clean and dry also make use any contacts on spa skirting are secured propertly

SOURCE: What does flo mean on the display of my hot tub.

"flo" means there is none ... flow that is. You may have a damaged impeller.

SOURCE: 1 set of 4 jets won't work properly?

check the face of the jet trim to make sure it is turned on. most jets today turn clockwise and counter clockwise to turn the water on/off on each jet.

SOURCE: My pacific hot tub has LOC on the display and i cant adjust the jets or temp. Is the display locked and how do i unlock it?

Mike,

Yes LOC is a standard topside lock code.

Try these common unlock codes,

Press & Hold Jet Button for 6 seconds
or
Press & Hold Temp Up & Temp down for 6 seconds.

Possibly your jet button is faulty i.e. it is broken internally or when it is pressed the button sticks in the on position and locks out the panel.

If those common codes don't work let me know which brand/topside control your spa has and I will get a more specific answer.

Our hot tub will only heat when jets are on?


Depending on the design tubs and pools need water to be circulating before heater runs to prevent the heater from burning out. If the circulation pump runs constantly the heater should work any time but a plugged or restricted filter might not let it flow like it needs to.
If the pump only runs in the jet mode then it might be the way it is designed.
Try checking with the manufacturers website for an FAQ section.

Our 880 Marin hot tub is constantly running the jets on 1/2 of the tub as if the circulation pump is running. The icon on the control panel does not show the jets are on. When we push the button to turn...


sounds to me with a power surge you could have a relay on the circuit board not working properly.
You will most likely need to change the circuit board to correct the problem.

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.

Just looked at 2000 coast spa hot tub with 1 6.5hp motor,is this enough power to support the 30 jets as opposed to another hot tub that has 2 7hp motors with 40 jets


a 6.5hp motor produces quite a bit of force. It should be able to support 30 jets just fine. Most spas range from 2hp to 7hp. Depending on your preferences, the 6.5 should be plenty but if you really want a powerful therapy jet, two 7hp pumps should be more than sufficient. They will also kick your electric meter up a few notches...
Two pumps give you more options, you don't have to have half of the jets turned off so one area can have more power, the dual pumps give you the option to run nearly all of the jets at the same time if you have more than just a couple people in the spa a once.

Hot tub will not stay warm


You must keep your circulator pump running if you want the water to stay hot. The water is being heated inside the pipes but it isn't getting circulated until you turn on the jets pump.

Tub pump


This may be due to clogged jets. Also, if this is a new application....the valves under the spa may not be in the up position to release the water to run into the pump and through to the jets. It may be a top side control issue as well. Check for error codes.
