  1. hi I am new to the hot tub scene and have just bought a 2004? coast nassau hot tub, ( needing a little work ) my current problem is the 3 dots on top side panel, red led on printed circuit and not being able to clear the air in the lines, I have changed the pressure switch ( the 3 dot go off when I switch to 2nd speed) the temp is set to 100f but is maintaining about 82f ( it has got to 100 previously) the heater tube is only normal temp not boiling i keep releasing the air from the filter bleed screw but within minutes its back again ( i do have about 10 out of 40 jet missing at the moment - waiting for replacements) any suggestions, or is it due to missing jet sucking the air back into the lines and then causing the low flow? thanks

    How Much Does Hot Tub Maintenance Cost?

    Hot tubs can be pricey, but many people don’t consider the cost it will take to maintain their hot tub when they are budgeting for a new spa. For proper maintenance, you will need to purchase chemicals, filters, and even more products that will keep the spa looking and working like it is new. Not everyone realizes just what it takes both financially and time-wise to take care of a hot tub, but after this article, you will! One-Time Maintenance Costs When it comes to caring for your hot tub, most of the costs will be ongoing, but there are a few things that you will only need to worry about once. First, purchase and installation fees, which may seem obvious, are one-time fees that can greatly affect how well your hot tub performs. The cost of a hot tub can range from about $3,000 to over $20,000. The price is dependent upon the size, brand, and features associated with the hot tub. The least expensive hot tubs are generally between $3,000 and $5,000. The spas in this range are usually small and made out of durable plastic. Typically, these hot tubs are lighter and require only a 110V electrical connection, which makes them much easier to install. A mid-level hot tub will cost between $4,000 and $8,000. Spas in this group are often made with acrylic shells and will have more features like lights or jet-lined seats. Called value-priced hot tubs, these will have better features than less expensive hot tubs, but they will contain a lot of cheap parts that will need to be replaced more frequently. Premium-level hot tubs cost between $6,000 and $10,000. They will likely run better for a longer amount of time than those that are less expensive. They will have features that are similar to those in the mid-level range but have better parts that are more durable. They also tend to have more controls that allow you to customize the settings of your hot tub better. Luxury hot tubs are the most expensive option. They will range from $9,000 to more than $20,000. They are the best-made hot tubs and are made with high-quality, durable parts. These spas tend to be more beautiful than those at lower price points. You should expect a spa in this price range to have the best features and require the least amount of maintenance. Installation fees are also necessary. Installation costs can be dramatically different depending on the electrical set-up, location, delivery fee, and installation company. When having a hot tub installed, you should expect to spend well over $1,000 for everything. If you are on a tight budget, you may need to figure out how much delivery and installation fees will be before purchasing the hot tub, so you have the money for everything you intend to purchase. In some cases, you may need to opt for a less expensive spa to account for delivery and installation costs. Yearly Hot Tub Maintenance Hot tubs require a lot to stay clean and sanitary. It isn’t easy to keep a hot tub in good working order as well as clean. Once your hot tub is set-up, the costs don’t end. You will need to use a few different chemicals to keep the water in your spa safe and clean. You will first need a clarifying product that will keep the water clear. Second, chlorine or bromine is necessary to disinfect the hot tub and its water. Alkalinity and pH balancers will be needed to make sure that the water is safe for use. A shocking treatment will frequently be needed to kill any bacteria that is living in the water. Test strips can help you test the chemical levels of the water, so you know just when you need to add spa chemicals to the tub. All of these products can range from $10 to $20 a month, which is well over $100 each year on the most basic maintenance products. Larger hot tubs may require over $100 each month on chemicals. Filters are also necessary when running your hot tub, and filters will need to be replaced fairly frequently for them to work properly. Depending on usage and how long your filters last, you may end up paying an additional $100 per year on spa filters. You should also expect your bills to rise. Electricity and water are both necessary to run a hot tub. Unfortunately, that means that you are going to be using more water and electricity than you did before you purchased the hot tub. In the summer, it won’t be nearly as expensive to keep the water in the spa warm, but you will still need to figure in an additional $30 to $50 per month. In the winter, you are likely to spend $100 or more each month to heat the tub. Annually, you could be spending as little as $350 or more than $1,200 on electricity bill payments. Water bills may be an extra $50 per year depending on how often you need to drain and refill the spa. Many hot tubs have UV light bulbs that kill bacteria. These bulbs are $75, but they tend to last a while. You may need to purchase one per year, however. If you can do it yourself, then you won’t also incur the additional labor cost of installation. Hot tubs are pricey to purchase and own, and many people tend to underestimate these costs. Now that you know just what a spa entails, you can make a better decision on whether you are ready to buy one and what price level you should be considering.
  3. We had a power failure. Ordinarily the screen shows 4 straight lines when the power fails. It is showing the power and the ready light flashing. The pumps will run, lights work but it’s down to 88 and won’t heat? Any help? thank you

    Best Inflatable Spa (hot tub)

    I am really wanting an inflatable hot tub, but am reading a lot of terrifying things. Most reviews are great, but I’m seeing a lot of reviews saying different ones fall apart after a year. I do not want to pay the extra money right now for a fiberglass hot tub. So is there any brand of portable spa that will last me a few years without problem? Or are they all garbage, that will die after one year? Thank you! regards, Ash
  5. Hello everyone, I have recently purchased a 2006 three seater coast spa. With a model of CYSO501. Item number 0189. The dimensions are 2080 1615 970. It is a 3.2kw. Im trying to locate a manual as everything is running as it should do only I can't seem to change the temperature on the thermostat, and get that reading to register. It keeps reverting back to a temperature that must of already been set. The heat exchanger and all other electrics are working. But I cannot seem to be able to adjust the temp. We are in the uk and all models seem to be in the US with different controllers. Any help would be appreciated.

    Winterized Hot Tub issues

    So I drained my hot tub this fall, I thought I had all of the water out, but I didn't blow air through the pipes like I should have. (big mistake I know) I have a 2002ish Marquis Ultimate hot tube. (An oldie but pretty good one for that age) Anyway, I went to fill the tub today and as I was filling the tub it was taking quite a bit longer than normal and water was coming from what seemed like under the hot tub. I eventually got the tub filled, but when I went to turn it on, it kept tripping the breaker, not allowing me to even turn the tub on to begin the cycle process when to re-fill it each time. After doing some investigation I realized I have a major leak. Since I turned off the garden hose, it has dropped about 2 feet and still going. There are are 5 intake filters (I assume that is what they are), 2 floor jets & 1 drain. I will also add, I have changed all three motors (or gaskets) over the years and have easy access to the motors and heater and the leak isn't coming from this area of the hot tub. Suggestions from here?

    Broken Filter

    Hello everyone! I recently moved into a new house and didn’t receive any information about the spa here. We are draining it and trying to clean it but the filter seems to be broken. I’m not sure if there’s a part I can buy to fix it or an easy way to hack it?

    Bromine Issue

    Hello - I have a 450gal tub that is 2 months old and I have a constant recurring issue. I filled the tub, added sodium bromide and shocked with MPS...I also have a bromine floater that is in the tub that I have set to "all the way open". I find it impossible to maintain a bromine readout from day to day. If I add dichlor I get a nice readout, but within 18 hours the readout goes to 0. Last night, I shocked w/MPS to try and reactivate the bromine. I will run a test strip tonight to see if there is anything, but the only thing I noticed this morning is that it made my water cloudy... Please help! UPDATE: Last night I was actually able to get a readout of bromine in my spa, which means something is finally working. The next question I have would be how do I maintain this level of bromine? Just keep shocking with MPS weekly, or is something else required more than that?

  10. We currently have an above ground, 500 gal hot tub with ozonator. It's only 4 months old. When we first got it, we did the Ahsome flush. The last new/clean fill we did was about a month ago, and things were going really well. We use 10% sodium hypochlorite to sanitize. CC was consistently at .5 or below. With this last fill, I tested the overnight demand and there was a 60% loss. I think, due to the ozonator, this hot tub has a high chlorine demand. My husband and some friends hung out in the hot tub last weekend for hours and didn't replenish any of the chlorine. The next day, I tested and FC was 0, CC was 1. The water was also very cloudy. so I thought I would try to SLAM. I've been doing it for 3 days now keeping it at 13ppm (as best as I can). The water has cleared up and is no longer cloudy. Initially, I was losing 5ppm chlorine every hour. Now, it's about 1-2ppm every 3 hours. Unfortunately the CC is still somewhere between .5 and 1ppm (I'm using the Taylor K-2006 kit, at the 10ml level). Am I understanding this correctly, I keep chlorine levels up until CC drops below .5ppm? Thanks! pH = 7.4 CYA = 30 Temp = 96%F
  11. The other day my hot tubs hush pump return split nut collar had broken which caused a water like explosion due to the pressure; after that had happened my hot tub shut off right away. Once the new part was installed I went to flip the breaker for the hot tub only to notice right after flipping it, it trips again. I had gone to the hot tub management system and unplugged the pumps one by one to find that it did not trip with hush pump disconnected, now the hush pump was fine and working up until this point, also which nothing had happened to it other than the split nut break. Model number is 750E
  12. Hi, im hoping somebody can assist me before I need to go down the professional route. I have a 6 person hot tub which I recently topped up by sticking the hose straight into the hot tub - only about 2 inches, but the next down I had a Low Flow Error and then DRY - weirdly the jets work fine and I have I have bled the pump, but the DRY error still appears and the 2 fountain and 1 waterfall don't work, yet everything else does - any ideas? Cheers Karl
  13. I have a caldera Tarino hot tub. It is a 115 or a 230v model. When I received it from the dealer it had the 115 cord hooked up to it and I wanted it hooked up to 230v. How do I know that it is set up fully for 230v 50a and able to run the heater on high jet and not only on low. I also got it with speakers that are not hooked up does anyone know what I have to do to to make those work. I was told by the dealer I could by a Bluetooth adapter for it but I haven't found one that looks like it will work. And can I use the USB port located inside
  14. The zipper on my hot tub cover is broken on one half of the cover near the hinge. Otherwise, the cover is in fine shape though it is likely 10 years old. (I'm not sure of the age as we just bought the house. The hot tub is 10 years old.). Is thtere a way to repair the zipper or seal the seam? I'm a new spa owner. Recommendations and knowledge are very welcome. Thank you!

    Nordic Sport Hot Tub

    hello, I have a Nordic Sport hot tub. I believe 2002. The control panel will go dim and when it does the only button that will work is the Temp Up button and it is what will turn the jets off and on. When it is normal lit the correct buttons do the correct functions. So you can't control the temp or light when it is dim. If the power goes out or your reset the power box it resets the temp back to 95. I also have noticed it is getting stuck on low jets and not turning off after the 20 minutes of circulation. Any thoughts on how to correct these problems. Thank you.
  17. My hot tub is 3 years old and has a ClearRay UV sanitizer system installed. I have changed the UV bulb once, about 8 months ago. When the filtration pump is running then the ClearRay system signals that is working by illuminating two indicator lights. Both of the lights are out and I am wondering how I should start troubleshooting the system. Thanks in advance.
  18. Im trying to settle and argument between my father in law and I. The previous owners left a fairly new "used" 6 person in-ground hot tub uninstalled near the pool. I wanted to get rid of it but my father in law thinks that we can just build an above ground "shell" for it and incorporate the piping into the in-ground pool system. Im fairly certain this CANT be done. I once read that there was a difference in how the in and above ground hot tubs were made. Am I correct? Is it possible to build an above ground frame to house it? Or can In-ground hot tubs ONLY be installed in-ground for water displacement reasons? Please educate us! Thanks in advance!

    Non chlorine shock

    I have a 1200L hot tub and use chlorine granuals as my sanitizer and non chlorine shock as well. Lets say I go to use the hot tub... The free chlorine level reads 2.5ppm. After use the free chlorine would be converted to combined chlorine and would read 0ppm free chlorine. So now do I... A) add the non chlorine shock first, then add chlorine granuals. or do I add chlorine granuals first then the non chlorine shock.

    Hot Tub Water Milky

    Hi! I have a problem I hope someone can help me with. I have a 400 gallon Four Winds hot tub. On Sunday I noticed the water was rather milky. On Sunday it was a white opaque color. I tried various methods to clear the water including non chlorine shock, chlorine, enhancer, and clairifier. The chemicals were all fine except for the chlorine (which fluctuates as it does in a hot tub). After nothing helped, I did a plumbing purge overnight then cleaned and refilled the tub. Today, two days later, I open the cover to get in and guess what?? Same milky water. Did a chemical check and all was fine except, again, low chlorine. I am at a loss. Help!!
  21. Hello all, i have a hot tub heater that has a problem, when powering the hot tub on from the mains in the house the heater turns on (without pump on) and sounds like a kettle while control panel is showing heater is off? it then eventually trips the red button near the heater element after about 40 seconds.if i turn on the control panel the heater on the pump starts and heater does not trip until up to temp. After opening the heater cover the wires around the heater and ''sensors'' look like they need replacing,i have opened main control box and the heater relay also looks like it has been very warm. what could cause heater to turn on without the lcd controller's main power light on??? what would you suggest i look at 1st? the lcd works as it should fine on everything else. there is also lots of flow when the pump for heater is on. https://www.flickr.com/photos/25806980@N04/25502362986/in/photostream/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/25806980@N04/24901783923/in/photostream/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/25806980@N04/25435745211/in/photostream/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/25806980@N04/25232878030/in/photostream/
  22. I'm getting ready to get a concrete pad poured for a new hot tub any suggestions on what the size and specification should be. What's a reasonable cost to pay in the Northeast. Also should we run conduit inside the concrete

    Algae Attacks Newbie?

    Firstly, thank you to everyone who shares their knowledge here. I have spent hours reading posts over the last few weeks and it's been a great education for me. I have a 17ft swim spa, so it's bigger than a hot tub but smaller than a pool. Volume is about 2000 gallons. Bromine system with a chlorine generator. Bought it last August. Lots of fun, no major issues. From my reading here I have learned a few things that demonstrate how bad the advice was from the pool store after installation..live and learn... - my FC levels have always been low (1 or lower). The advice of "check it once a week" with a test strip is clearly not enough for a bromine swim spa that is in the sun. Whatever FC is generated from adding oxidizer burns off that day. Weekly checks leave many days where FC was probably very low. - the generator is a nice idea but it really can't keep up with both bather load and sunlight combined. - I have since switched to using Clorox as my oxidizer , putting it in basically every night, using the pool calculator to target an FC level of 5. Hit it over the last couple of days so I am getting a feel for that. The water was slightly cloudy before I moved to Clorox, it's clearer now. The possible algae... - I started seeing what looked like small globs of dirt on the bottom of the spa last week, a week or so after a pool party the kids had (heavy bather load) - tried cleaning the filter etc but it persisted - created a basic siphon using tubing from the local hardware store..it tends to break up very quickly into a wispy sort of cloud but was able to get most of it out...but it returned overnight each time. - pool water is otherwise clear, easy to see the bottom, crystal clear when you go under water with googles on. So... - because I learned my lesson too late and low FC levels have occurred, plus 4 kids using it a number of times on top of regular bather load, I have to think Algae is a real possibility. - given I have a bromine spa I think I have two options 1- shock using instructions I have found in these forums. I would plan to add enough bleach to take FC over 10 and watch for overnight loss. I have a test kit on the way, they are not as easy to find in Canada. Question- given I have a bromine spa, any alterations to the usual a shock instructions I need to know? 2- I could dump the water. Since it's essentially a big spa and not a pool, a water change is an option. But...if it is algae a simple water dump won't solve the problem I would still need to shock I would think, so I am not sure this option gets me very far. I am open to other thoughts and input. I kick myself for not getting educated sooner but I believed the idea that I had a "self cleaning" spa and did not pay enough attention to water chemistry., plus the guidelines I were given really seem woefully inadequate given all that I have learned on these forums. I have found the learning here very beneficial, it's more than I have ever learned from the pool store folks, and I am moving towards using the simple products outlined in the BBB method to manage my water. Thanks all, advice appreciated
  24. I have a 3 year old Jacuzzi 310 hot tub that is inside the house. Wife and I are the only ones who use it and always shower before getting in. I have no problems keeping ph within range. I have the ozone system and use very little bromine occasionally. My problem is the water is hard and makes our skin itch after using it multiple times. Hot Springs dealer wants to sell me a new salt water tub. Another dealer says to switch current tub to a salt water system. Is the salt water system going to prematurely ruin the heater and pumps? I can not find an additive to soften water without leaving a film. We use the tub 4-5 days a week year round. Looking for some kind of solution from you experts out there. Do's and dont's to cure this problem??
  25. Hi all, As a housewarming gift, my parents game us the hot tub they purchased 14 years ago. It was brand new, still in its original box and packaging and never before used. We set it up this weekend and it is in surprisingly amazing condition. Everything is like-new. Unfortunately, I'm faced with a problem. I discovered while trying to prime the pump that there were no jet plugs in the box. The company who made the hot tub sold the brand to another company. That second company is defunct. I can't get an answer from any official vendor as no one knows who that is anymore! So I come to you. I have an Image Renew 815 Model IMHS81591 (Manual is here: https://www.iconservice.com/CustomerService/manualsProductManuals.do?model=IMHS8159&modelName=IMAGE+RENEW+815+SPA&version=1&company=21&language=) . I need 4 jet plugs. Are Jet plugs a universal size? Is there a way to figure out the size I need without draining the entire hot tub, getting in and measuring it?
