    hot tub pumps

    After draining my cal spas hot tub, and installing a new heater assy. & pressure switch, I refilled the tub I have low circulation. It will not cycle the pumps on without pushing the button. Thanks

    Welcome to tfp, randerso72

    Sorry no one has responded to your post yet. I am not familiar with your tub, but hopefully someone on here is

    Again, I don't know what I am talking about here...but I would think you would need to push a button to start the pump?

    Is it possible there may be an air bubble in there? Switch wires tight? could there be something restricting the water, maybe a dust cap on the heater or something drawn inside?

    Sorry I don't have a definite fix for you.
