SOURCE: Spa Pools, setting up spa pool with chemicals etc

Hi curlyall,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

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!

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,

SOURCE: redout on jacuzzi spa model j340 has --- code.has been working

The condition you see on the topside control is known as "watchdog" Which usually means that the spa thinks it's "overheating"
Turn off the power to the spa for a couple of minutes, then restart, Watch the topside control if the temp. starts to climb & read a lot hotter than the actual water temp. Then it goes into watchdog, most likely you have a bad temp sensor. In some cases just resetting the spa will clear the watchdog & everything works fine. (Voltage fluctuations, "spikes" can freak out the electronics & the tub goes into watchdog to protect itself) If the spa immediately goes into watchdog when you reset it, you might have a bad board. (Let's pray it's not) 90% of the time it's a bad temp. sensor.

SOURCE: Kohler bathtub spa does not work at all

If the air tube is still connected to the air button on the side of the tub and you are pushing it with no results then either the motor is no good, the air button is no good or the air switch in the box is no good.
process of elimination, start with the pump. take the switch off the motor or out of the box and make sure you can get the motor to come on. If the motor comes on then move to the air switch and hook it back up and see if you can blow into the air switch with a new air button or a straw and see if the switch will activate the pump. if it does then you most likely have a bad air button ($12). If you cannot get it to activate the pump then the air switch is bad ($21).

SOURCE: spa air button cable has came off

You will need to pull the apron. If it is faux marble, you will need to be careful not to break it. Usually the apron is only held on by silicone adhesive.

Motor will not come on. flashing OH on tub display dial. Dream maker Model #8003 x 400 series 86L Just purchased used spa and have no manual or directions. thanks


OH stands for Over Heat situation.
If the motor is not working at all, you are getting the OH code because of that. The OH happens when there is not enough circulation in the hot tub which causes the water near the heater to overheat the sensor located in that area. It sounds like either the pump has failed, the wiring has shorted to the motor, or the control board is not telling the pump to come on.
Its probably a bad motor since the heater is obviously activating, which it wouldnt if the pumps motor was getting no power. Replace motor and all should be well again.

We have a brand new Oasis Mohave spa and we wanted to run through a full cycle so we ran the tub for a week, no problems. then we drained and refilled the tub. Now we get dr or dy as error codes on the...


The dr error code is for "dry". Meaning that the control system is not sensing that water is flowing through the heating element.

With a new spa, and you just having drained it , it is probably an air locked pump.
What this means is that you have a small constant circulation pump with not much power, that got ait trapped in it when you drained. When you went to start back up, this "air lock" prevented the pump from fully priming.
Power down the spa at the breaker. Remove the filter element.Stick a garden hose with lots of pressure into the skimmer hole and open the hose valve to let water inject into the skimmer.
Restore power to the spa and check operation.
If after attempting this a few times you still get the code, there is an issue with your flowswitch, or with your circulation pump.
With a brand new spa, id like to hope that you just have an air lock.

Good luck

Hot tub heating is working but pump has stopped


you may have a system that uses a small circulating pump that circulates the water thru the heater to keep water temp at proper level (this is usually the case with hot springs spas and is because it is the most cost effective way to maintain constant water heat without using a full size pump or two speed pump just to push water past the heater core. therefore the issue is you have a problem with your jet pump and it has nothing to do with the circulating and heating portion of the spa. you can check to see if there are any reset buttons in or near the equipment as well as open enclosures to make sure everything is clean and dry also make use any contacts on spa skirting are secured propertly

Whirlpool Pump - Hums, no water flow...


The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

QCA Opal hot tub display reading OH.


The tub experienced an overheat situation. This may be due to leaving the t stat turned all the way up and not monitoring or the hi-limit sensor is defective. The hi-limit sensor will shut down the heating cicuit if temp gets above 105 D optimally.the fact that the heater light is on is a good sign that things are working at this point.Whether or not a suitable temp(100-103 D) will be arrived at is to be seen. If spa heat kicks off before set temp is reached then replace hi-limit sensor.

Tub pump


This may be due to clogged jets. Also, if this is a new application....the valves under the spa may not be in the up position to release the water to run into the pump and through to the jets. It may be a top side control issue as well. Check for error codes.
