I've owned a used pool and jacuzzi for about nine months now. They were installed in 2009 I believe. I just started maintaining them myself with the BBB
method about three months ago. The pool has been quite easy even in dealing with algae and pump motor problems but, the jacuzzi has been quite a pain in the
rear. The company that sold the pool and jacuzzi to the previous owner is scum and I want to do whatever repairs my self if at all possible! Where can I
get a service manual for a Caldera Spas Martinique??? I have looked everywhere on this site and cannot find the solution anywhere.
The current jacuzzis info:
Caldera Spas Paradise Series Martinique
pH - 7.4
TA - 40
CH - 250
BR - 7
CC - 0.4 (after about a 30min soak last night, first soak in several days)
I've got two problems with the jacuzzi:
1. The CC just keeps coming back (usually around 0.2 or 0.4 but as high as 1.0) and for no good reason. Even after shocking withbleach (10x the CC, and
sometimes much more) and/or MPS (1 or 2oz.). I have even seen it come back after NO bather load. All the while the chemicals are in spec. Also, I'm not sure
if this is related (I hope it's not!) but, I have been noticing quite a dark even black looking line on the tub at the waterline. It even felt almost
rubbery. I have drained the tub thinking I didn't startup right to no avail.
2. The temperature on the jacuzzi is behaving erratically. It started a week or two before the CC issue I believe. The actual temp was always off a degree or two from the temp setting but, a couple of months ago the temp was often getting up around 106 to 108 degrees for no apparent reason. I was trying to find a service manual (Where can I get a service manual, Please Help???) and could only find one thermostat on the internet that I thought might resolve the issue but, all of a sudden the high temp problem went away and the temp was spot on more accurate than before. Well, two weeks later the temp issue is back and worse than before at 109 degrees.
Anyone know what is going on here???
