If its set at 104, but only heats to around 80 degrees, then your heater is not working. Either the heating element is bad, or the pressure switch is not closing. The reason why the water heats up to 80 degrees, is from the friction caused by the mechanical shaft seal when the pump is running. Either way, you should really have it checked by a qualified spa technician. It is not something that the average spa owner can normally repair themselves. Sorry.

Our hot tub temp keeps dropping daily into the 90's temp when it is set at 104 degrees. When we turn the high speed blower on, it seems this is the only way we can get the temp back up to the

calcium will stick to heating element 1st and make it less able to heat water , eventually it will consume the entire surface and insulate the water from touching it and warming it and finally overheat it and cause burnout , high calcium (limestone) is usually a condition that occurs when filling via a well or stream , consider getting a load of pre softened water from a municipal water system , there should be a list of haulers in your area that can provide this service

I have an intex spa and is heated to 96 and it's warm but not hot. What can I do ?

First thing to check would be the filter to make it is clean however if the tub is not getting to 104 degrees as it should you probably have a thermostat problem.

How can i increase the tempature of my oasis hot tub from 101 which seems to be max to 105 degrees

That is not adjustable. It is set from the factory and the manufacture has to legally limit the temp for medical reasons. The tub I had and the highest temp allowed by law is 104 degrees I believe.

I just installed my new X400 Dreamaker Spa. I filled it with water (although cold) and it has been warming up for approx. 18 hours and is only at 80 degrees? Is this normal? How long should it take to...

This is normal with the dream maker spa. The dream maker spas are poorly insulated, and only run 120 volts with a very small heater.
When the unit is first filled, the hot tub will not heat full time either. Most new hot tubs will have freeze protection below 50 degrees F. They will recirculate automatically using the friction and the pumps heat to warm the water above 50 degrees, and then the heating unit will kick on. These hot tubs do not heat while the jets are on high either, so once you are in it using the jets on high, the temperature will start to fall.

Now that you are up to 80 degrees, it should heat up fairly quick however.

When the setting is at 104 my spa only heats to 98 i have a pentair mini max

Hi there.

You probably don't want health advice ... but ... well ... Im going to give you some anyway cause ... it is my dime. 104 degrees is not only very expensive to maintain ... it is also dangerous at exposure levels in excess of 15 minutes for ADULTS -- IF YOU ARE IN GOOD HEALTH. Less time if you are in less than perfect health. For children, deadly! I am not interested in what your neighbor may have told you - believe me when I tell you children in a hot tub near that temp is big trouble. Please don't do this.

Ok, your machine MAY have a internal safety that will not allow you to heat the water more than 98 degrees. It may require a professional to change that internal setting. It may also be that your heater is not capable of heating that amount of water to that temperature.

Did you or someone calculate the heat requirement and loss for your body of water? Do you know how many gallons of water you are heating and what is the BTU rating of your boiler? Gas, Oil or Electric?

If you can get me this additional information, Id be glad to do a calculation for you.
