Jacuzzi Jets are mostly manufactured from SABS Approved Polymers that fuse together very well with PVC Pipes once PVC weld or Tangit has been applied to both surfaces.

There are many variations of these jets on the market. The most common would be the 50 mm / 32 mm pipe combination. Meaning that the water channel runs in the 50 mm pipe and the Venturi Air System is connected to the 32 mm pipe.

 This jet has a venturi system, which allows for air to be sucked in to the water channel to boost the Jacuzzi Jets Pressure.

The other type of popular Jacuzzi Jets are the 32 mm / 32 mm configuration. These type of Jacuzzi Jets are used in installations where there is not adequate enough space.

Jacuzzi Hot Tub Shells are manufactured from high grade sanitary acrylic sheets supplied by Lucite International a UK based Company With branches all over the world.

High Grade Sanitary Acrylic Sheet Sample Colors

There used to be a whole variety of colors to choose from in South Africa a few years ago, but with the economy slowly deteriorating, many of the Jacuzzi manufacturers have scaled down on their production as the demand has dropped significantly.

This resulted in Lucite international limiting their export colors to South Africa to only white and Kalahari Beige, which is a sand brown color, very beautiful and also the most popular sheet color. Unfortunately, sometimes there is only white available.

These Acrylic sheets are heated in an oven until about 141 degrees centigrade, before they are clamped to a mold. The air is sucked out from under the sheet and this causes the acrylic sheet to take on the form of the mold.

Once the sheet has cooled enough, it is removed from the mold and trimmed in order for it to be re-in forced with fiber glass.

Once the Jacuzzi has been sprayed with  Fiber Glass and dried for at least 2 Hours it can then be plumbed according to the Customers Specifications. Be careful not to drill too many holes in the bath, as this could weaken the Jacuzzi support structure.

Many funny and unwanted cracks and bulges will start appearing everywhere. It is very important to support the Foot Well of the Jacuzzi with either Cement or River Sand.

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.

Why is my bath not heating?

Jacuzzi Thermostat

Answer: If you have switched the bath on and off before and it suddenly stops working, the first thing you should check is if the Thermostat is making a clicking sound when you turn it from left to right.

If its not clicking it might be faulty. If it is clicking, then your heater is most probably the problem. Please what ever you do, don’t use a geyser element when replacing the heater.

The first thing that will happen is that it will burn a hole in the Jacuzzi Water Heater casing, after that the power should immediately trip and the element will POP (Burn a hole in the element, if this happens you should hear a loud popping sound.) If you need professional assistance with installing your Jacuzzi Water Heater please Click Here Now!!

The Jacuzzi Hard Water Heating Element is one of the components that get replaced the most often. Sometimes when used incorrectly the Jacuzzi Water Heater will make a popping sound and the lights will trip.

It is very common for Swimming Pool Companies to install Geyser Elements in to the Jacuzzi Water Heater Casing. This will result in the element breaking much quicker than usual.

Inside water you find microscopic particles of metal and other impurities. Flowing over the heated Jacuzzi Water Heater it tends to puncture it after a few hours.

Bellow is an example of an Geyser Element.
