Grass in hot tub, now I'm not heating


 Share

Recommended Posts

I recently had a party with a lot of kids. They were running around the yard and jumping in and out of the hot tub. I didn't realize how much grass they were tracking in and out til the next day when I went to add chemicals.  The code on the display read, dr, and heating was disabled.  I checked the filters and they were loaded with grass, and so were the intakes in the lower well.  I think grass got into my lines and has clogged them and now I have low flow to the heater. Is there a way to check this out without having to pull pumps and heater?

Try running without a filter.  When my filter got a little clogged up, did not build up enough pressure to activate the pressure switch, so that's how I troubleshot mine.  Washing didn't help, I bought a new filter.  And a back-up one, online.

Running without a filter usually helps in such cases. But if I were in your place, I'd take care of the yard first. I guess the problem is in uncontrolled weed which grows too fast. I sometimes have the similar problem, but the weed killer spray usually helps. It'd be also extremely helpful to use weed mowers or weed pullers. You can read at  https://www.growgardener.com/best-weed-puller/ about the best tools available for today. I think you can find there smth that would be practical for you.

P.S. Be careful next time with kids.

I've been looking for a cordless garden trimmer for a long time too. Couldn't find one. I know there used to be one here. The electric mower is less noisy, unpretentious. However, the service life of an electric trimmer is several times shorter than that of a petrol one. Also, electric mowers are significantly inferior in performance, there is no possibility of working away from the power source. I would like to buy a petrol-powered brushcutter, as the description says it is much better. Has anyone used the milwaukee string trimmer or any other brands? What have you got to say about operation or service life?
