SOURCE: bath tub water doesn't stay hot

it is because the tub has a temp control valve in it so if you were to put more cold with the hot it will last longer but still won't be all the way hot,, now a days people are suing the manifacture because they are getting burned form the hot water so they put these saftey temp controls in place of the old style 2 or 3 handle faucets,, there fo no more real hot water nothing you can do outside of change to the othere type of faucet 2 or 3 handle tub shower diverter,, that why the water is hot in the sink but not the tub.....

SOURCE: How do you replace a flow switch in a spa, or hot tub

turn off the power to the spa. remove the cabinet under the topside remote to expose the equipment compartment. You should see the flow switch, it's usually a threaded 3/4" plug with a single grey wire coming out of it. Most of them are threaded into a tee or a special transparent fitting. If the water level in the spa is above the flow switch, you may have to drain the spa down unless you're very fast about getting the new switch in. Unthread the old switch and thread the new one in. Follow the wire on the old one to the spa pack. You'll have to remove the screws on the cover to expose the circuit board. Follow that wire into the spa pack to see where on the circuit board that it is plugged in. It may be good to run the new wire to have in place as soon as you unplug the old one you can install the new one with no question as to where it plugs in.

Reinstall the cover on the spa-pack and turn the main power back on. Make sure that the arrows on the new flow switch are facing the correct direction (direction of flow). Once you have the spa on and it starts back up, run everything to check for leaks and proper operation. If the flow switch was the only problem, all your faults should be cleared and you should be in good shape. If there are no leaks, you can reinstall the cabinet panel.

The new switch should already have teflon tape on the threads, if not, use teflon tape, apply the tape in the direction as if you were threading a nut onto the threads. You only need a few wraps of teflon tape, too much can crack the fitting you threat the new flow switch in to.

SOURCE: Bath tub faucet will only run hot. Just started

It sounds like the seals are going bad. Moen is probably rebuildable. You can go to a Menards and ask if they have the replacement guts for your particular model.

SOURCE: shower/tub combo hot water problem

Hello,
There is a restriction in the faucet or the piping to the faucet on the hot wtaer side...this will be very hard to find and fix... The shower uses less water so it will get hot.... the tub spout allows more water flow so you cannot get the water more then warm...

Take the faucet apart and blow out all the passage ways with air... also run some water from the piping while the guts are out of the faucet, to flush the piping...
Hopefully this will fix you up...

How to clean a whirlpool bath tub


There are three main things to tackle when cleaning a hot tub or whirlpool bath. Those things are:

1. Bacteria
2. Grease
3. Grime and dirt

To address all three of these issues you'll likely need separate products. There are liquid versions of the degreaser and cleaner, and there are tablet versions for sanitizing.

Simply fill up the whirlpool bath with warm water, put the cleaning liquid in the cleaning outlet (or if you don't have this, just pour it into the bath). Put the tablet in the bath and then just run it.

This should do the job.

My hot tub is not coming on at all and is giving me a Pr code. What can I do?


please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
If the unit won't start, make sure power is on at the electrical panel or the electrical panel . Then test the pump and the motor. Check for and repair broken wires or loose or corroded terminals. If necessary, have the pump switch control tested and serviced professionally.
If the jets do not work, clear a blocked water intake of hair and other particles (see below) or replace a broken jet (see below).
If the water in your spa or hot tub is too hot or too cold, check to see if the high-limit reset switch has been tripped and, if needed, reset it. Adjust the thermostat setting and have the thermostat serviced if the problem persists. If necessary, test and replace a faulty heating elements

Kohler led lighting and jacuzzi motor + jets stopped working but automatic line clearing air still blows when tub is emptied.


Air Switch Repair
It sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

You should start with checking all your breakers to be sure the breaker did not pop just half of your breaker. This is something you should do with all your breakers. When you do this you should shut down all your 220v breakers so you don't get bleed back through the system. Other than that you need to look for resets on the tub. The heater is a good place to start and don't forget the gfci's on the tub or in the bath or laundry room.

Stale water odour when jets havent been used on massage type spa


There are several cleaning methods on the internet. I would contact the maker of the tub and see if they have a cleaning agent. I know that Jacuzzi and Aquatic industries have a cleaner that works rather well. I have seen one on the net that uses 2 teaspoons of powder dishwasher soap mixed with bleach. I have not tried this one so don't know how well it works. The ones from the tub companies are not cheap, but if you want something that is going to do the job, spend the money.

Bath Specs Comparison


Generally, the size of the bathing area in the bathroom will determine whether a 5-foot, 6-foot or corner bath is selected. If space is not an issue then other factors can be considered. Most people compare the features, performance, style, comfort and price of the various baths being evaluated.
