Starting up older dry tub
skb1022 posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasHi- I inherited someone's hot tub a few years ago (Garden Leisure 8-man, nice tub but a little older), and a crew brought it over and set it in the driveway, where it stayed for three years or so. So the other day we wired it up and filled it. Several diffusers are missing and I was getting ready to order all new ones, but figured it wouldn't hurt to fill it and start it up to see if it worked. At first the pump leaked a bit (which I anticipated). After a bit I kicked on the jets and water was dripping out all over the place, on all sides. So we shut it down and drained it. I'm no tub expert, and I've been reading enough to determine that there could be cracks or bad gaskets throughout. The tub is foam-covered and the jets are not easy to get to, but not impossible. I'm pretty handy and have thought about trying to redo this thing, but I don't know if it's even worth it. My questions are: 1. is there a way to perhaps seal these jets without getting to the underside of each of them? 2. does the missing diffuser have anything to do with a leaky jet? 3. is this tub beyond repair? Thanks for any advice, suggestions, words of wisdom.
Please help. I have a spa crest hot tub. We have recently replaced the circ pump, and entire balboa box with circuit board and heating element etc. Circ pump is 24 hour continuous but kicks off when jets 1 is turned on causing dry and overheat error codes. The circ pump will continue to run simultaneously with jets 2. Im at the end of my troubleshooting skills. Any advice will be much appreciated!
A few year old (4-5?) legends series lsx masterspas tub. It is throwing a few different codes, SnS, dr, then dry (and sometimes Ohh) I suspect these are all related, maybe a non working circ. pump? I have tried to bleed the circ pump, I have checked the head of the circ pump for ease of propeller spinning and no clog. I have turned power off for 5 minutes after each attempt, still not good. (I also started with trying to run without filters, which are clean, just in case was a simple flow issue) Symptoms are that it is not heating. All three pumps seems to work, 2 at both of their speeds, and pump three at its only speed. It does, sometimes, rapidly raise the detected temp. up to the 118 shut off limit, but not always. Water temp is in the 65-75 range right now, as it's not been working for a few days, and it's getting into the 40's-50's at night up here in New England. Upon opening the front, there is a small pump maid by "Laing" that says circ. pump, and I don't seem to see this running. But truthfully, I don't remember if my circ. pump ever ran on its own? Never really paid attention. It does connect directly to the heater tube tho, so being that the dr and dry codes mean not enough water in the heater tube, am I correct in assuming that it is not pushing water into the heater and should start by replacing this? I'd hate to replace it, to find that it's a sensor or something, since the other two codes point to them as well. .? Please help, I am unemployed and can't afford serious costly service reps, but my wife has a bad back and needs this tub working. Thanks in advance, John
