We just got a brand new hot tub and its freezing outside.
There are 2 cups of antifreeze in the lines and as stated by the hot tub company (strong bought thru Costco) we were to fill the tub with 12" of water to help flush it out.
So we did...and nothing happened.
Called strong and they had no answers for us except to put hot water in the end of the line to try to get the anti freeze moving....yeah, nothing happened and then they were closed and wont reopen for 2 days!
I believe there are air bubbles in the line. We proceeded to follow the manual about priming the pump using the sequence of button pushes without success. Next step, a strap wrench to open the valve to release some air...nothing happened.
The jets are almost all working, I can see air bubbles in the line for the top jets on one seat.
The blower works the water is moving, but its -20 here and those lines are going to freeze if I cant get the bubbles out. We've used a hair dryer on the lines and have a portable heater in place under the tub skirt to keep it warm. no matter what we do we cant get the heater working.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
