Make sure the electrician check visually the ground wire on all components of the jacuzzi , motor pump heat element .etc..etc and make sure all connected .
After that make him use a special ground tester to check the heater element and all the ground connections to your main home electric box .

Jacuzzi tankless water heater code 12 appears


For my Jacuzzi tankless water heater model #J-SN180F: It turned out to be an exhaust issue. If I take off the exhaust vent completely then the talks heater works with 3 baths at full hot water. I get the error code 12 again as soon as I put event an elbow of the vent. So my conclusion is I need some sort of straight vent.

Is it possible to install a small on-demand hot water heater in lieu of an in-line heater for a jacuzzi, so the pump will circulate the water through it? Is there a benefit to this?


Hello, I not sure if your having a problem with your current in-line heater and can't get to it to repair or replace it but, this is the most effective way of heating your tub water without adding water and I say this assuming that the heater is 220 volt and not 115volt. An on demand electric water heater would cost more money to operate then your current unit. A gas on demand heater would not function properly and would fail to provide the hot water you need. If you install a gas on demand water heater and use it to just fill your tub with hot water then you would save money in the long run and be able to use it for your whole house. Hope this information is helpful. If you have more questions please feel free to ask.

We have a hot tub or jacuzzi inside or on the side of our pool. We had a new heater installed. The jacuzzi should heat up very quickly but now the pool tech claims the drain from the jacuzzi is blocked,...


Is the equipment to heat and filter the hot tub separate from the pool equipment or do both bodies of water share a common heater and filter pump? In most cases they share a pump and heater with valves that direct the flow of water depending on how the pool owner wants to use the pools.

The first thing you need to determine then is if the equipment is working properly. Is there flow of water to and from the spa? If so, is the heater burner kicking on? If it is running, is it running properly with sufficient gas pressure, 3-4" tall bright blue flames and stays on continuously during the heating cycle for the spa?

What is 'very quickly' for the time to heat the water? In other words, if everything appears to be operating normally but the water is not warming fast enough or at all how much time is elapsing before deciding the heater is not working?

How old is this equipment and how much experience do you have with this pool tech or the company they are from?

Jacuzzi hot tub, aero select. pops circuit breaker as soon as switch is thrown. I disconected both motors and panel. still blows. Unit is about 8 Years old. Is there anywhere I can get a schmatic or any...


Your Jacuzzi should be connected to a large GFI breaker. If it pops as soon as you turn something on, there is an imbalance between the legs supplying the power to your device. When my (small "J") jacuzzi (at about age 15) did this, I discovered a small leak that had dripped onto the circuit board and had left a deposit causing a "short". I was able to clean the deposit off of the board physically, I fixed the leak and return my tub to service.

The GFI is very sensitive and for good reason. It protects you from dangerous electric voltages, even though the danger is low.

My Jacuzzi won't turn off or heat


The heater will only fire if it has water in it. If you just got the house, make sure the gas/electric to the heater is on. Turn off the pump and turn it back on.. See if that works. good luck

Rapid Heater for Jacuzzi


The light is supposed to be on when the tub is full of water and the pump comes on. Make sure the heater is plugged into a seperate breaker, it cannot be on the same line as the pump.
Look on the heater for a label. If your heater is installed on the discharge side of the pump it should say "pressure heater" on it. If it is installed in front of the pump it should say "Vacuum Heater" on it.
Once installed, fill the tub with water and turn the pump on. If it is installed in the correct position the light will come on when the pump turns on.

Jacuzzi Hot Water Heating Capacity


Depending on how you heat the hot water, whether gas or electric, is a missing detail in your problem, but if it is electric then your problem is the size, being only 40 gal, and needing probably about that to fill the tub, will always lead to your current position.
If the hot water heater is gas, the chances of it keeping up are slightly better, but again things like the temperature of the water leaving the tank, any mixing valves, etc. will effect the water temp at your tub.  Before raising any temps, make sure you follow local code, as not to scald yourself or others.
