You went out to check your hot tub and found the water cool and three dashes on your control panel. Or, you might have seen a FLO message on the LED.:
When you have a FLO error, your hot tub is telling you that it doesn’t think it has water flowing through its heater. If there’s no flow, the hot tub turns off the heater to prevent it from burning out. This error is caused by one of two problems:

The winter is the worst time of year for a hot tub failure. Put together an emergency first aid kit to make sure your hot tub can survive winter’s emergencies.

You should close and winterize your pool ahead of the frost to keep your equipment and water lines from freezing. Try not to close your pool too early though - if you wait until the water temperature is consistently below 15 degrees Celsius (60 degrees Fahrenheit) then you'll have less algae growth throughout the Winter season. The following guide will work for inground pools sanitized using chlorine or salt water.

I have a Calspa 5000, I believe it is a 2006, and it's intermittently overheating. I started having issues with it after our electric went on and off at least a dozen times a few weeks ago. I have read on different forums that it could be the temp. sensor or a relay sticking. My question is would the thermostat still be showing the correct temp if the sensor is bad. I have the spa set to 100 and it will just keep raising the temp until OH finally appears. So to me this shows that the t

Every year in Texas many homeowners choose the wrong pool builder and the worst case scenario becomes a hard reality - the builder goes belly up before finishing their pool. The homeowner is left with a big whole in their backyard and their initial checks of payment cashed and gone. These questions can help you avoid that situation. These days, it is easy to look big and successful on the internet, even if the company is a small startup with no cash flow to support a dump in their operations.
I have four main concerns.
My swimming pool builder tells me the wall of the swimming pool must be at least 30 cm. away from the wall of the house so as not to disturbe the foundations of the house. I have however seen photos of pools that are right next to the walls of the house. How can this be achieved?
My swimming pool builder tells me that in order for the watter not to spill outside the pool a wave breaker must be built all along the edges in the form described in the attached picture.
I have a aqua pure salt water system. i just purchased a new cell which lasted about 5 years. My problem is when i try to set the percent of chlorine on the front panel of the system i have to put the aqua link in service mode to change the % of chlorine and than go to time out and than auto. when the system goes off at night and restarts in the morning the setting is back to 0% i am not sure why my setting is not staying in the system. i hope someone out there can answer this.
Among the luxuries we know of, swimming pools are surely one of a kind. While one has a refreshing experience while swimming, he/she also burns a lot of calories with the help of this activity. Also , the presence of a swimming pool adds more appeal to a residence – it is more than exciting to have a pool party with friends or even a meal with the family sitting at your poolside table.
All the enjoyment of a swimming pool aside, anyone who owns it has a major job to do, that is maintaining it.
I have a 2001 cal spa. We have replaced heating element. Tested to make sure everything has power. All filter and inlet for water is clean. Bypassed thermostat to make sure heat light would come on and it does. Not sure what else could be wrong. Need some advice thanks in advance.

In my experience their warranty isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
They will try to blame any fault within the warranty period on you, even though you have followed the guidelines.
If you are unlucky enough to have already purchased from them and your unit develops a fault, please make sure you are present to see what the engineers do when they check the fault. Unfortunately, we we’re out and they
I am looking to sell my D1 Nautilus spa and have no idea what it is worth. The guy I had come out and service it when I bought the house thought it was installed in early 2007. A dealer offered to buy it so I wanted to get an idea of what it might be worth since I am a newbie. It is in great shape.
