Priming can be done many different ways depending on thetubs design. Some tub manufactures provide bleed valves located on the plumbingjust beyond the pump and heater unions. Some pumps have a bleed valve locatedon the pump. If there are no bleed valves then you will have to release theunion nuts to allow the air to escape.

My HotSprings Hot tub does not heat after draing and refill


I am betting your pump has air in it. You will have to figure out how to purge the air out or prime your pump.

Hot tub stuck in PR mode.


Are the pumps primed, the code represents that the pumps are being primed and should only stay on 2 - 5 minutes. If the pumps are not primed then you may have an air lock or dirty filters. You need to release the air or clean or replace the filters and your pumps will prime.

Will a flow switch stop the tub of any operation


Is the board getting power, is the control lighting up?
Do you see any error codes on the top side control?
Improper flow will give you an error code, caused by flow issues or a faulty flow switch. Make sure all gate valves are open and the water can flow freely.
If not then check your Hi Limit sensor. This is the overheat safety sensor if it fails the tub will not function at all.

I assume that it pumps from/to the hot tub. If so, the pump is fine. Look for any air leaks in the piping/hoses from the connection in the pool to the inlet of the pump.

Self priming hot tub pump won't prime


If you have had the tub empty and refilled this could be an air lock and all you may need to do is open the drain valve till you get water out of it. Good luck

QCA Dream Series, Mystic SPA. Drained, cleaned and re-filled. Following power restore (and 5 min or so prime cycle), the the pump runs continuously at low speed - it NEVER stops. Everything else works fine...


After refiling a spa, typicall the water is below 50 degrees F. Spas have a freeze protection in their programming so that when the water is that cold, the pumps run constantly to keep it from freezing. It will correct itself

Flahes from FL to the temperature (13) after refiling. Temperature level will also not increase.


FL is usually a flow sensor/switch fault. If you have just filled the tub, the pump may not be properly primed. The best thing is to fill the tub through the skimmer when you first start filling it, that ensures the pump is filled with water and is not air locked. You may have to force water into the skimmer to push the air out of the line or loosen a union on the discharge side of the pump to get it primed. FL will not let heater run because it thinks that there is no flow.
