Newer hot tubs have a digital display for error codes that can assist with troubleshooting. A message such as “dr” or “dry” or “heater dry” is a warning that there's no water in the heater tube. If the water is low, add water to the proper level and try restarting the pump and heater.

Also to know, what does no flow condition mean on a hot tub?

There are a couple of common causes for flow errors in hot tubs; low water level, dirty filters, clogged circulation pumps, and bad flow sensors. If the water gets too low and the spa's filter well is not completely submerged it can cause air to be drawn into the system giving you a low flow error.

How do you test a hot tub circulation pump?

When your hot tub pump is dead…
Check that your power is on, the breaker or GFCI test button are not tripped, all valves are in the open position. Follow the circ pump plumbing, and look for any kinks in the hose. Pull out the cartridge filter to see if flow improves and the circulation pump is doing better.

Should I leave my hot tub on all the time?

Yes, you should leave your hot tub on all of the time. Hot tubs are designed to always be switched on and it's more economical to keep the water hot than it is to heat it up from cold each time you want to use it.

Should my hot tub pump run all the time?

Many modern spas are designed so the water is circulated continuously, 24 hours a day. If this is the case, just make sure your pump runs quietly and constantly. Older spas may run on a timer mode or automatic mode which means it doesn't run all throughout the day but will kick on at regular intervals.

How long do hot tubs last?

A hot tub can last anywhere from 5-20 years or more. Cheaper hot tubs made with lower quality materials won't last long. If those hot tubs are not well maintained, they may not last more than 5 years.

Why does my hot tub have no power?

The first step to take is to check the circuit breaker panel that your hot tub is hooked up to. If this restores power to your tub temporarily before the breaker is tripped again, consult an electrician – the problem is likely with your breaker and not your spa. If this does not fix the problem, check the GFI switch.

Where is the high limit switch on a hot tub?

A limit switch will be located in your heater enclosure, mostly in its lower left corner. It is usually white in color with a red button at the center. If your water is not heating up and you think the heater is the problem, one heater element that you need to check out will be the limit switch.
