Re: spa used once now wont heat up again
There is something wrong with your water balance and/or your sanitising chemical level.
Dump the water. Get the help of your pool supply place to help you balance the water. pH should be 7.4, Total Alkalinity should be in the range required by your sanitiser (80 to 100 or 100 to 120) and chlorine or bromine should be around 10 ppm CL or 20 ppm BR.

im gonna assume your referring to the parts that make a spa work ,
1st theres the main pump most times there centrifugal pumps with mechanical shaft seals , this pump moves water in thru the filters and out the nozzles around pool ,most spa's have a two or more speed motor that runs this pump
2nd some spa's (not all) have a second pump usually smaller these are for the heating circuits , they are also centrifugal and use mechanical or magnetic seals these pumps also intake thru the filters and push water thru the heating elements and also the water conditioner (UV) and on some spa's its also a means to add water treatment chemicals as well
3rd and last but not least theres the blower now not all spa's have one of these , but most do , this blower blows air into the main nozzles exit ports and make the wonderfull bubbles in the spa , now some spa's don't have a blower and use a process called venturi to draw air into a nozzle as water is forced out of it , but this type of system is a bit temperamental and is difficult to keep working well ,
blower motors also have adjustable speeds to adjust the amount of bubbles in spa
The spring bank holiday started as the Monday after Pentecost. This is known as Whitsun or Whit Monday in the United Kingdom. The Banking and Financial Dealings Act 1971, moved this bank holiday to the last Monday in May, following a trail period of this arrangement from 1965 to 1970. In 2002 this bank holiday was moved to June 4 to follow an extra bank holiday on June 3. This gave people a four-day weekend to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. This marked the 50th year of her accession to the throne of the United Kingdom. The spring bank holiday will also be moved to June 4 in 2012 to form a long weekend together with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee bank holiday.

You should always follow the instructions on the manual .. I have a 18X33X4 oval and had to start with over 350 lbs of salt and ran the pump without the chlorinator for 24 hours to properly disolve the salt. Then, I started with 12 hrs pump cycle with 10 hrs of chlorination in between the 12 hrs. Keep checking the chlorine level and adjust time from there. Currently at temperatures of 85 to 100, I run the system at 10 hrs pump with 8 hrs chrlorinator and water is Crystal Clear... In the 2 years with the intex system, I have not added any chemicals to my pool. I once had an issue when the water level went low while I was on vacation, when I came back, the chrolinator had turned off due to low flow and my pool water was green.. As soon as I re-started the cycle, a few days later, Crystal Clear again... NO CHEMICALS OR SHOCK added.... Hope this helps....
You can try using surgical spirit. Its a safe chemical and you might have i in your house. You can buy it in store.
The fact that you get a rash from strap makes me think that it might not be stainless (which is usually inert). If cleaning it does not solve your problem then I suggest you buy another strap from a watch shop.
Your problem is: You have just brought a secound hand spa, you are woundering what sort of chemicals etc are required, there are no instuctions with it
If your spa is the type that you fill once, then you must treat it just like a swiming pool. Go to the local pool supplies store. They will be happy to set you up. Don't forget PH testing kit! Test it every day. And I prefer non chlorine chemicals. It's also helpfull to have a small submersible pump in case you need to replace the water sometime. Happy soaking!
