Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a spaberry hot tub and there is a build up around the side of the spa. It is like an adhesive substance since it is sticky. How did it get there and how do I get rid of it?

I have filled and drained it twice but it continues to come back. I am using the tablets in a floater to add bromine. Is that the problem??

Back to my spaberry hot tub, we have followed all the directions to a t twice and still won't turn on, is there a reset switch? What are we doing wrong?

Hi Karen,

Is the motor turning on? Or no power at all when you turn it on?

I am going to assume that the power is on and the water is just not circulating. If this is the issue you could have an air lock. An air lock is common on a new tub or when you change the water. To remove it you just have to open one of the unions slightly to remove it and your pump should prime.

If in fact you are not getting power to your pump, check your fuse, plug, and cord to make sure they are all working correctly.

Here are a couple articles that may help you as a first time tub owner.

Is there anything on the market to replace chemicals on a new hot tub

Drain the water weekly. IF you really want to dish out the money you can get an Ultraviolet sanitizer or even an ozone generator but those are made to work with chemicas like chlorine or bromine, not stand alone, also for pools. And even then you would have to manage the ph somehow and that can only be done by replacing water or some kind of acid. Chlorine tabs now a days usually take care of both trichlor being slightly acidic for such a small body of water takes care of both. If you have some kind of chlorine smell from your spa and you are not sitting right next to a chlorine floater then you have a problem with the chemical balance and is a byproduct of chloramines.

What do I do when 32 keeps flashing on the controller?

32 is the temperature that water freezes at in farenheight scale , the controller is telling you that y0ur tub is in danger of freezing up , as this will damage its internal parts and such if this occurs , also if this tends to be a false notice (proven by a separate probe) then it could be telling you that temp control device inside the controller is having a problem , and its warning you that your tub could freeze up

I have an intex spa. The air bag that connects to the air channel inside the tub has blown out the valve. What type of adhesive should I use to reseal it?

I would use some silicone, it's waterproof doesn't mold easily, and easy to take off if needed. But whatever you use let fully dry and cure before blasting it with water. But if that doesn't work there's mr sticky an epoxy that will cure underwater.

I have brown gunk sticking to the walls appearing to come from the pipes in my Spa

You have one of four possible issues in your hot tub.

  1. Mold
  2. Algae
  3. Hard water
  4. Calcium
The first thing you want to establish is if the problem is organic or non-organic, because the solution to the issue is different for both. If it is organic mold or algae then you need to drain clean and sanitize everything, tub, filter, hot tub cover etc.. and it may take more then one refilling depending on what it is. You could try and take a sample in a clear jar and put bleach in the jar. If the substance in the water disappears you know its organic.

If the issue is water hardness or calcium then you will need the corresponding chemicals to deal with these issue. We have a chemical called spa control that deals with water hardness. You may also want to use a a pre-filter when filling your hot tub to rid yourself of high content minerals in your water.

Hayward offline brominator won't introduce bromine in pool?

If there is any age to the pool bromine feeder, then the residue of the tablets, which is called "Binder", has gummed the internal workings of your feeder. A local pool/spa retail store should be able to provide you with three things that you can replace yourself.
  • A kit that will replace the hose fittings that go/thread into your feeder and out of the feeder. one of these fittings is a check valve. when that gets gummed/clogged up, you will not have good feed operation
  • A kit that will replace the "Saddle plumbing fittings". These are the hose fittings that come from the feeder and are attached at the plumbing pipes. They are installed very easily by the use of a stainless steel clamp. Loosen the clamp and remove the fittings and replace them. They also tend to get gummed up by tablet binder.
  • And finally if so inclined, replace the flow control valve/knob on the feeder. This too is not that difficult to replace.
With all of these three items taken care of, you will have your feeder back to almost new.

You may also want to consider the replacement of the lid oring, while changing things?

There is a leak and we can not find it. Any solutions

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.
