On this episode we’re talking about some common problems you might have with your hot tub and how to troubleshoot them. There are 5 common problems that can take place with your hot tub. If you experience one of these issues, you might be able to troubleshoot it yourself. Otherwise, I highly recommend hiring a professional if you’re unsure or you have to deal with electrical components. 1. My Hot Tub Won’t Heat Sometimes a heating problem is as simple as replacing a heater element, which is the most common cause. But you should also check the pump to make sure it’s running at a good flow. 2. My Jets Aren’t Working Most hot tubs come with adjustable jets that can be turned down for less pressure, or closed completely. So check first to make sure all your jets are open. If you recently refilled the spa, it could be an air lock. To remove an air lock, loosen either fitting on the pump to allow the air in the pipe to escape. My friend Dan from http://www.PoolandSpa.com has an excellent video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GS_SO4YhWcM 3. My Hot Tub is Displaying an Error Code Flo or FLC = Improper water flow. The first thing I would do is check the filters to make sure they’re clean or replace them. It could also be a broken pressure switch, which will shut off your heater if you have a low flow. Or it could be the pump itself. OH = Over heat. If the temperature of the water is actually 108° or hotter, the temp sensor should be replaced. If the water is cool, the high limit sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. Dr/Dry means there’s not enough water in the heater. This is similar to the Flo error, so make sure your hot tub is properly filled and your filters are clean. If you suspect it something else, hire a professional. COOL means the water is more than 20° F cooler than the temperature set, so just cover your hot tub to let it heat up. SnA or SnB = This means that sensor A or sensor B is bad or has a poor connection to the circuit board. Check the connection or replace the sensor. If that does not work, the problem is in the circuit board itself. Need more help?

My Pump is Making Loud Noises This usually means the bearings in the motor are shot, which can be caused by a leaking shaft seal, or old age. The best thing to do is replace just the motor or the whole pump. Personally, I would just buy a whole new pump rather than replacing or repairing the motor. 5. My GFCI Breaker is Tripping If your breaker keeps tripping, it could be your heater element, pump, blower or ozonator. Find the problem by unplugging each component one at a time and turn the breaker on to see if it trips. If you’ve unplugged all the components and the breaker still trips, it’s probably the heater element. Bonus Tip! Today’s bonus tip is brought to you by The Hot Tub Handbook a illustrated downloadable guide covering everything you need to know about hot tub maintenance. Get your copy at http://www.SwimUniversity.com/handbook. Most of the time, hot tub issues are caused by the water chemistry or the filters. So by maintaining a good water balance and keeping your filters clean, you’ll be able to avoid and even fix a lot of these common hot tub issues. Make sure you pH is always between 7.4 and 7.6, your alkalinity is between 80 and 120ppm, and your sanitizer level is correct. Also be sure to rinse your hot tub filters at least once a week and use a filter cleaner at least once a month. Replacing your filters regularly will help, too.

On this episode we’re talking about 3 ways to keep your pool water warm to make the season just a little longer. I got an email from Gene who asked, "what's a good, cheap way to heat pool to make season last a little longer?" There’s a few different options for heating up a pool including buying a gas heater, heat pump, or solar heater. But if you want something good AND cheap, there are 3 ways to heat the pool using the power of the sun. - The cheapest and most effective way to keep your pool warm is to use a solar cover. These are the bubble-wrap like plastic covers that you lay bubble-side down on top of the water. If you have a really big pool, you may need to buy a solar cover reel OR you can cut your solar cover into more manageable pieces. - You can use liquid solar covers, which last about a month and slowly release a tiny bit of non-toxic liquid that floats to the surface. It creates a thin coating that keeps the water from evaporating. And I’ve been asked so many times, and yes it’s totally safe to use. - And finally, you can buy some Solar Rings. These are round, floating mini solar covers that you can just toss in your pool. They connect with magnets and provide up to 21,000 BTU's of heat per day. So those are the 3 cheap ways to heat your pool, but if you already have a pool heater and want to save some extra money, well, that’s why we have a.... Bonus Tip! Today’s bonus tip is brought to you by The Art of Pool Care, which is an illustrated downloadable guide I created that covers everything you need to know about pool care. To buy it, go to http://www.SwimUniversity.com/Art and enter the promo code: VIDEO to get $5 off. All of these cheap pool heating methods can actually help save you money if you have a more expensive heating system, like gas or electric. You can heat your pool up to the temperature you want using your main heater and then use either a solar cover, solar rings or liquid solar cover to help keep that heat in your pool. It’s like heating up your coffee and putting a lid on it to keep it warm.

DIY Solar hot water heater in extreme temperatures is still pumping 180 deg. under 27 deg. and this morning it was -5 and didn't freeze even with out antifreeze. Tubes are ice cold and inside tube hot as hell. I don't use it that much but if I did it would run between 90 - 120 deg in the winter. This past summer I was not using it and it was making steam at 225 deg. yes, that's wright, steam! AMAZING!!
As of 2013, the coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth was reportedly 135.8 degrees below zero Fahrenheit…this chamber is 220 degrees below Fahrenheit.
