Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

1 Answer

Hi. No i haven't got any trees near the spa so i tryed to do what you said about taking the filter out. But then i turned it on at the power point and the spr worked with the jets working then it stopped and now nothing works so i pulled the cover off the electrical box and i have a voltage tester and there is power going to the unit from the power lead but not to the two plugs on top of the box which lead to the control buttons that operate the spar jets on the side of the spa [cream coloured buttons]. It looks like it may have a sort somewhere. I carn't find a reset button on the power box and we have circut breakers in the fuse box [house] and they are working ok [The box is making a cliking noise].Have you got any idea what maybe wrong with the box

Have you attempted powering off at the circuit breaker level, leaving it flipped off for a good 5 - 10 minutes minimum and then flipping it back on? That may well reset the whole spa and get it working again.

Please give it a try and let me know, do you still not have power to the two plugs on top?

Thanks, please reply to me here and I can get right back with you..

Why can't my brand new Meade Polaris 127 telescope not even show me stuff in broad daylight or night. No matter the lens, eye piece, eye, object near or far. I only see eyelashes sometimes if I try.

I suspect that what you have is a combination of two problems:
1. you are very far out of focus,
2. you have too much magnification.

Here's what I would do.

Point your scopt at some distant trees. Use your lowest power eyepiece, and run the focus all the way from one end to the other. At some point, you should see the tree leaves....

Keeps turning on and off

Need more info...

Is it a heater that keeps turning on/off?

check your filter, it could be dirty.
clean the cartridges, or backwash: Sand or DE?
If DE, you may need to do a complete breakdown and cleanse?

There is a flow switch in the heater, that monitors correct/proper amount of water flow. If you are near that cutoff point, the heater will turn off.

Good Luck

Pump on sand point well keeps running

I take it its electric. if there is a leak in the supply line somewhere then it wont turn off. if you can cap the supply pipe near the pump and see if it turns off then. if it doesn't then the pressure switch needs adjusting or replacing. good luck

Lay z spa pump has E02 code which is water flow problem,have changed filter.flushed through ,set reset button but fault code still appears.

If this is an outdoor spa near trees, its almost a guarantee that the impeller is blocked with debris (pine needles can cause this in a hurry)

If the impeller is clean of debris and this is still happening, replace you pressure/flow switch.

My spa keeps on pulsating the same way it does when I refill it when I first start it up

Either your circulation pump is "air locked" or you need a new filter, or both.

to release the air-lock shut off power to the spa . remove the filter element(s). take a garden hose to the hole under the filter and try to get a good seal. turn it on and let it flow for a minute to try to "prime" the system. REMOVE garden hose and turn power on WITHOUT the filter. this should unlock it.

replace the filter and monitor. If it starts happening again with the filter in place, get a new filter.

This is assuming that you know that your pump is good.

Hi! I have a Hayward Pro pool/spa system with Jandy valves and I'm trying to figure out how to switch them from pool to spa. Either I empty the spa or I'm heating the whole pool. Help please!

This is tough cause I can't see the valve setup. I have to assume they are manual valves. Normal operation probably takes some water out of the pool and spa than puts it back into both. To heat the spa, set the intake valves(the ones in front of pump) to take water from only the spa. Set the jets(valve(s) on output side of filter) to send water back to only the spa. The pool will be out of the loop. Normal operation usually has water taken out of pool and spa than put back into both. Make sure to put more water back into spa than you take out, (Adjust valve)

Hopefully you have not fried the motor. To free a stuck motor: try to reach past the strainer to the impeller and turn it. If you can't do that, remove the electric end cover and find a double flat for a wrench where the shaft goes into the motor. Or maybe you can remove the spring thing from the end of the motor and move the shaft with a pair of vise grips or pliers. Don't damage the place where the spring thing mounts. Don't try to move the motor with the plastic fan thing near the pump, you'll just break it, and then you really have problems.
To keep a motor from sticking, thru off season occasionaly spin the pump, just a few seconds will do, don't need water.
