The heating component of the wholesale hot tubs spas may be the most important feature for someone who has purchased or is thinking about purchasing an Island Escape spa or Baja hot tub. Choosing which kind of heater you will need for your Island Escape and Blue Ridge hot tubs depends on your intended use of the wholesale hot tubs spas. If you use it more frequently, you may want to consider a smaller heater because you can predetermine when you will be using the Island Escape or Baja hot tub and set the heater ahead of time to make sure it is fully heated. On the other hand, if you don’t use the spa as frequently, you may want to consider a larger heater. This is because you won’t always be anticipating the usage of the tub and will want to heat it faster at the spur of a moment.
The three types of heaters used in wholesale hot tubs spas are electric- fueled, gas-fueled and solar. The electric-fueled heaters may be inconvenient for you if you want your hot tub heated in a hurry. They can take up to several hours to heat up even a small Island Escape or Baja hot tub. They are typically controlled only by a thermostat. If you are using this type of heater, you can help the heating process by always placing the cover on your Island Escape or Baja hot tub when it’s not in use and you can consider using a thermal blanket to retain heat as well. The gas-fueled heaters are typically used for larger Island Escape or Blue Ridge hot tubs. These heaters usually involve a more complex control circuit, not just a thermostat, but follow the same operational concept as the electric-fueled heaters.
Aside from the gas and electric-fueled heaters, if you are interested in a cost-efficient way to heat your hot tub, you can consider the solar heating approach for your wholesale hot tubs spas. Just like the gas and electric heaters, the solar heater passes water along in the pipes and then that will heat up the Island Escape and Blue Ridge hot tubs water. These heaters work with pipes that are laid out inside of panels that are located somewhere that can get direct sun rays (i.e. a rooftop). The panels get warm from the sun, and then that warms the water.
Two common heater problems to be aware of in your wholesale hot tubs spas are reduced water flow and a broken or burnt out heating coil. Reduced water flow is often caused by something clogging the water filter. Check to see if anything is stuck in the filter or if there is bacteria growth hindering the water movement because the lack of hot water flow causes the entire hot tub to cool down. The second, more serious problem is a broken or burnt out heating coil. This problem will completely stop the heating process all together in your Island Escape or Blue Ridge hot tubs. To fix this, you must locate the tripped hi-limit switch on your Island Escape or Baja hot tub and merely reset it. Some other basic problems that may be affecting the heat in your wholesale hot tubs spas are broken thermostats, open doors on spa cabinets, a damaged insulating cover, improper water chemistry, or improper venting. So before you decide to spend time and money on a new heater, be sure to check all possible causes for the lack of heat in your wholesale hot tubs spas.
If you are experiencing no heat from your Island Escape or Baja hot tub heater, it is most likely a burnt out of broken heating coil. If you are experiencing significantly less heat coming from your hot tub heater, the problem most likely is being caused by a reduced water flow in your hot tub. This may also be related to abundant scale and mineral build up caused by poor water maintenance which will clog your filter and reduce water flow.
- A couple useful tips that are worth acknowledging in prolonging the life and efficiency of your Island Escape or Blue Ridge hot tubs heater include:Never bend, twist or deform the electrical terminal when you are first installing a new heater in your Island Escape or Blue Ridge hot tubs
- Avoid air locks as best as possible. This means, make sure there is not air trapped in the plumbing before filling up an empty hot tub such as a Baja hot tub.
- This may sound repetitive but, keep the water balanced! You don’t want buildup to form around your filters or any other spa parts to begin to corrode.
- Similar to above, maintain proper sanitizer levels in your wholesale hot tubs spas water.
- In order to prolong heater life, if you can set your controls to a timer that would heat the Island Escape or Baja hot tub by time of day instead of following a thermostat will put less strain on the heater.
- A damaged thermostat can turn power on and off repeatedly and cause premature failure of the wholesale hot tubs spas heater.
