Heater


Water heater can be added to any incoming water line, either on hot or cold.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-under-counter-water-heater.html
Under-counter water heater located near tub will supply hot water just like ordinary household water heater. But it will not reheat water that circulates inside the spa tub.
Otherwise, a spa heater is made with electric element that can work with 120V or 240V. Water from tub circulates through tank that holds element. Element must be fully immersed in water.
To retrofit spa tub with this heater would require cutting water line near pump, running both ends of water line into tank with element.
Then of course you would need to retrofit adjustable thermostat to control when element is on. And integrate element operation into air control switch at tub that can override thermostat so element is not heating when tub is not in use.
Unless there is a pre-packaged kit to retrofit heater, I think adding heater would be difficult.

Jacizzi tub and water is not hot enough


When filling the tub if there is not enough hot water to fill the tub you will probably need a bigger water heater.
You can add a Bath Heater to your tub if the water is cooling down too quickly while you are using it however, a Bath Heater will NOT heat the water. They will only maintain the water temperature you start with.

Bought a hot water heater made by whirlpool for 2 weeks only had enough hot water to fill 1/4 of the tub then the water turned cold . They have replaced the hot water heater and still has same problem....


The down tube in the tank has fallen off or the hot and cold lines are reversed at the tank. I'm going to assume it is gas , if its electric you need to test the heating elements for continuity and temp settings. as well as the down tube in the top of the tank that sends the cold water feed to the bottom of the tank..

Is it possible to install a small on-demand hot water heater in lieu of an in-line heater for a jacuzzi, so the pump will circulate the water through it? Is there a benefit to this?


Hello, I not sure if your having a problem with your current in-line heater and can't get to it to repair or replace it but, this is the most effective way of heating your tub water without adding water and I say this assuming that the heater is 220 volt and not 115volt. An on demand electric water heater would cost more money to operate then your current unit. A gas on demand heater would not function properly and would fail to provide the hot water you need. If you install a gas on demand water heater and use it to just fill your tub with hot water then you would save money in the long run and be able to use it for your whole house. Hope this information is helpful. If you have more questions please feel free to ask.

The bath heater you have is not designed to HEAT water - they only Maintain what you start with.
You need to start the bathtub with the hot water you want. It will only heat about 1-2 degrees an hour.

There is no hot water after we installed


If you currently have hot water coming to other parts of the house, and you have patiently waited for the hot water to reach the tub, then you don't have a hot water line connected to the faucet. Also, because a hot tub or whirlpool can hold more water than your water heater holds, an inline heater is often used. It attaches to the plumbing system on the whirlpool.

I have A whirlpool hot water heater I can get hot water downstairs but not upstairs through the shower and tub


Upstairs do you get hot water to your sink faucet. If you do this indicates to me that the temperature valve in your Shower & Tub may need to be adjusted.

For single handle please remove handle to gain access to dial that adjusts hot & cold water mixing.
Remember where it is and take it out and replace about a 1/8 to 1/4 turn counter clockwise and reinstall and try.

It is a plastic adjustment dial that will slide off after the handle is removed.

Trace lines if possible to assure correct pipe's are connected to valve.

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
