correct, you can add for a very cheap cost liquid calcium to the spa, just don't go overboard, I find 75-150ppm for calcium hardness is a good level where it's not too hard and not too soft.  Good Luck!

I have a question regarding calcium hardness

We use a Water Softener to fill up the hot tub (I know it is not to be done), but what I'm wondering is, if I was to add calcium to my hot tub, it would increase the hardness level, Which in return should null the effect of a water softener? Correct or am I missing something here with that?

You know how you don't mention a rash for fear it may come back?  What was the Colorado brand that was rebranded Phoenix spas?   ;)

I thought we all agreed never to utter that product or the snake oil salesman? It was after all a haven for misinformation!

Lots of stuff left in spas from the manufacturing and testing (use same water over and over) Purge the system using Ahh-Some line cleaner. Clean filters regularly. Should be able to find generic filters cheaper online than branded filters from the store.
Keep going with the Ahh-Some. Have had used spas that I have had to flush 5, 6 times. Where in Canada?

So we just bought a house here in Canada which came with a 3 year old Hydropool Serenity Hot Tub...exciting right? Well, not so fast!

The sellers of the house agreed to have it cleaned and serviced..pretty standard stuff.

The local company here in our town came to service it back on December 20th. The servicing entailed a full flush and drain, the running of "Ahh-some" pipe cleaner, shop vac the entire tub, and blow out the pipes/refill. Once the tub was drained, it became quickly apparent that there was some nasty gunk stuck to the suction pumps at the bottom, which looked like oatmeal(see photo links below).

After re-filling the tub and turning on the jets, more and more of this oatmeal-like build up kept coming out out the jets. So, we drain the tub again, suck everything out, and re-fill it. Day completed.

The next day after running the jets again, more and more of this gunk kept coming out of the jets. The local shop instructed me to super-chlorinate the tub, run the jets as much as possible, and keep vacuuming out the oatmeal. Fast forward 2 weeks and close to 50 times of running the jets, the shop returns to re-service it. 

We re-drained the tub(this is the third time), put some more ahh-some pipe cleaner in it (ran it for close to an hour with the jets on), removed all the jets and cleaned them, ran the hot tub without the jets for multiple cycles, shop vacuumed the tub, and blew out all the pipes. We proceeded to re-fill the tub and run the jets, the water looked spotless prior to this point. Almost immediately, the oatmeal continued to shoot out of the jets, and he is similar to me at a loss of what to do next.

This has been quite time consuming and frustrating especially after being told from a few people that we're doing everything right.

What would be the reason for all this build up from a hot tub that's only 3 years old and what would you guys suggest if anything else that I can recommend to the local shop here?

I just want to use this darn tub!

Hot Spring Spas / 2007/8? Jettsetter Charred Board
« Last post by beasuperman on January 13, 2021, 11:26:19 pm »
Iím first time user of this forum.
I have 2007 or 8 Hot Spring Jetsetter and it seems that board caught fire and got charred while running the tub (I had cleaning cycle on to heat up the water to be ready). It would be much easier to explain if I am able to attach the photo but I do not know how...
Have anyone had his issue (cause/fix), or know of this concern and replaced the board prior to get torched? I would like to understand what caused this and what need to be fixed to get the old tub going again or even worth fixing it.
Thank you for your help in advance.
