I have a 4 seater Jacuzzi without a blower. Is it possible to install a blower?

Micro Air Jets

If there are small holes in the seat or small Micro air jets with pipes attached to them leading to a manifold system, then you just buy a Jacuzzi Air Blower Motor and a 50 mm Black “Union” and Tangit PVC weld and you can change it yourself. an Electrician might have to install it in the Jacuzzi Electrical Box.

If you are a D.I.Y. type of person, you could open the DB Box and then check where the old wires were in and then just match the colors of the wires on the new Jacuzzi Air Blower to the old ones.

PLEASE NOTE: WHENEVER YOU WORK ON YOUR JACUZZI ELECTRICAL BOX, OR ANY ELECTRICAL COMPONENT ON THE JACUZZI, SWITCH IT OFF – NOT ONLY IN THE DB BOX, BUT ALSO AT THE MAIN SUPPLY IN THE HOUSE. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT BOMB MECHANIC / TECHNICIAN WIRED THAT DB BOX.

If there are no holes or jets in the seats and your Jacuzzi is in a Wooden Surround, its easy, you unscrew the pump system lift the Jacuzzi out. Do the installation of the air channel, and then re-install it in the box.

Installing the Jacuzzi Air Channel includes: Drilling holes in the seat and then attaching the micro jets with silicon. Once this is done the manifold system is installed. The manifold, which consists of three parts, is used to disperse the air through 10 mm pipes that are attached to each micro jet in the seat. A normal 2 manifold system, joined with a T-piece, can take up to 8 micro air jets.

If there are no holes or jets in the seats and your Jacuzzi is in a brick installation or cannot be accessed from underneath, I must warn you that this experiment could be costly, Brick work most of the time require cutting of pipes, breaking tiles, chopping cement, dismantling decks and the list goes on. Re-installing it requires that the support on the foot well should be redone from scratch.

Note: Jacuzzi Air Blower is easy to replace, you should be careful not to switch it on, directly after applying the glue. The fumes of the glue go into the electric motor and once activated, it acts like a bomb as the fumes are ignited by the spark of the electric motor.

Usually the back end, which is not attached to the pipes, shoot off. And, depending on the quality of the PVC glue you are using, that will determine the size of the explosion. If you need professional assistance with installing your blower please Click Here Now!!

Jacuzzi Air Blowers, blow air in to the Jacuzzi Air Channel, which is situated in the seat of your Jacuzzi, the Air Channel distributes the Air evenly over the whole Jacuzzi. Jacuzzi Manufacturers use an alternative method of injecting the Air into the water channel. One of these ways are to connect the Jacuzzi Air Blower to the Hydro Therapy Massage Jets, this results in the pressure of the Jets increasing tremendously.

The problem with this is that if you should massage your muscles with this strong stream of water, it could damage your muscles more than sooth and relax them. The whole idea of blowing air in to the water is to increase the oxygen levels in the water

Jacuzzi Air Blowers can be run for 20 min at a time, then it must be switched off. Wait 10 min to cool down and then on again.The reason being that they have a single stage motor

All of these black blowers were manufactured by a company called Quality®, who make a whole range of Jacuzzi & Swimming Pool Products.

The motor inside this plastic casing is also used in vacuum cleaners, but in this specific application it is used to blow and not suck. Most of these blowers have a single stage motor inside, causing it to get very hot due to the air inlet restrictions.

On the two stage motor, there is an extra fan attached to the shaft of the motor allowing the motor to be cooled while in operation. Tests we have done on these two stage motors, have concluded that you can run that motor effectively for 9 hours on end without the glue melting or the pipes sagging.

The most strain this motor can have is when you switch it off and the water from the Jacuzzi fills up the air channel. Once the blower is switched on it has to blow all that water out the air channel before it can start bubbling from the seat.

The correct way to install a blower. If the blower is not higher then the water level, a double goose neck needs to be plumbed in order for the water not to push back into the blower.

When I press the buttons on my Jacuzzi Nothing Happens?

Jacuzzi Mushroom Air Buttons

Try to lift the button up and see if there is an air pipe attached to the back of the button. If there is no pipe then that is the problem.

If there is a pipe, go to the Jacuzzi Electrical Box and look on the side somewhere for air pipes attached to white or sometimes black switches.

If all the pipes are in, then the component your trying to switch on might be faulty.

And please make sure all the switches in the Jacuzzi Electrical Box are up, LOL.
