I'm getting really impacient up here in WI, my spa is under a foot of snow and all my pipes are also covered in snow, sitting on the ground cuz I'm not done. As much as I LOVE snowblowing I hate having unfinished projects like this.
So, once more, I post a thread asking for help. This time about the air buttons used to control pumps and such.
Here's my issue... My Spa is approx. 35 ft(by pipe run) from the equipment. Air buttons control the light, both pumps, and the air blower. I had to remove the stock control panel from my spa because the wires(indicator lights and temp control) weren't long enough. I now have an unsightly hole there and I'd like to mount the 4 air buttons in this space.
The issue is, this means the air buttons will have a 35 ft. run of pipe(1/8" clear plastic) between them and the equip. They aren't designed to be this far away and subsequently, I'm not sure if they will still have sufficient pressure to actuate the switches. They seen to work ok with a 6ft run(longest piece I have now) I think the tubing will be able to expand and absorb any pressure the buttons will create.
Will this actually happen???? If yes, how can I combat it? do they make special buttons for long distance runs?
