Picked up a 1994 cal spa off CL. 8x8, dual pumps, PS 4B pack, no air, cover, fresh cartridge. leveled it, framed it, filled it up. Ran a temp wire (6ga aluminum) just to see if it worked. GFCI works, pumps work, PS4 works. Never got to the heater, the jets weren't coming on. Hit the booster pump and the collar cracked on the pump. Drained it, pulled a jet, gaskets were shot. All 30 jets. 2 gaskets a jet. *great*. Took the ozonator (Cal Zone) out. Bulb was bad, wasn't hooked up anyway. Got a new collar installed, waiting on gaskets to be delivered, found 30' of 8/4 soow for cheap, built a PVC cover lifter.
So yeah, Hillbilly Hot Tub attempt #2 is well under way.
How do I determine water capacity??
The pillows are falling out, can I glue/silicone 'em in?
4 wires out, 4 wires in, yeah?? no big surprises?
