Jacuzzi Air Blower Durban
Jacuzzi Air Blower Durban-
Jacuzzi Air Blower injects air into the water, which allows for increased levels of oxygen. Sitting in these high levels of oxygen promotes blood circulation and helps with skin complexion.
In the diagram below you can see how a blower should be installed. This prevents the water from flowing in to the blower motor.
How To Repair Your Jacuzzi Blower Motor
When replacing your blower motor, it is important to rather get a qualified person to help you, because it can explode if done incorrectly..
If you insist on doing it yourself, you can purchase a blower motor and then install it easily.
JUST REMEMBER: After you have glued the Blower onto the PVC pipe, you should let it stand for an hour or two before switching it on.
The reason for this is that the PVC glue gives off fumes which go into the blower housing. Once it is activated, the spark of the electric motor starting will ignite those fumes and your blower will explode, hopefully not injuring you in any way, but it is better to be carefull. If you are not sure, then its fine if you do not glue the pipe for the blower. As it does not carry water and it does not have to be sealed with PVC weld.
Jacuzzi Jet Pumps Durban
Jacuzzi Jet Pumps play an important role in the Hydro Therapy Massage process. What it basically entails, is a high powered Jacuzzi Jet Pump shooting a stream of water from a specialy designed Hydro Therapy Massage Jet, delivering a refreshing, but healing massage. .
Jacuzzi Jet Pumps come in different shapes and sizes and requires special care and expert advice for some therapy methods. The soothing hot water jet massage has been known to relieve pains associated with arthritis and conditions with joint movement issues.
They not only deliver a soothing hot water massage, but can also be used as a circulation pump to purely heat up the water, saving you large amounts of money on your electricity bill.
Self Priming Jacuzzi Jet Pump
This self priming Jacuzzi pump can pump and suck and sometimes doesn’t need to have water added to start the pump action. This type of pump is used for building installations where the pump is placed higher than the level of the water or on the same level and water doesn’t flow automatically to the pump. This pump is identifiable by a distinct basket (Leaf Trap) attached to the front end of the pump.
Self Draining Jacuzzi Jet Pump
This self draining Jacuzzi pump can only pump. When the pump starts it needs water directly at the suction of the pump. This type of pump is used for portable installation and needs to be placed very much lower than the water level. This pump doesn’t have a leaf trap attached to it and can deliver the same amount of pressure or flow rate as the Self Priming Jacuzzi Jet Pump.
Jacuzzi Hydro Therapy Massage Jets Durban
Jacuzzi Hydro Therapy Massage Jets can come in various sizes and configurations. Currently, the most popular size is the 50 mm / 32 mm variation.This Size gives you the most Jet pressure and is supposed to be the standard, although some manufacturers try to save cost by installing the cheaper 32 mm / 32 mm jets.
The 32 mm/32 mm Jets are used when there is limited space available or on the 4 seater Jacuzzi where only 4 Jacuzzi Hydro Therapy Massage Jets are installed. The size of the jets really affect the flow from the pump and restricting it with a 32 mm pipe takes away most of it’s effectiveness.
On 50 mm / 32 mm jets, the 32 mm pipe connects to a venturi system. This venturi system, when activated, allows for air to be sucked into the water line, thus increasing the pressure, by incrasing the volume.
Jacuzzi Hydro Therapy Massage Jets Venturi System
If you do not have a venturi system installed on your Jacuzzi then the manufacturer is trying to rip you off. Easy to identify, it looks like a small dial on top of your Jacuzzi and on more advanced systems, you will find 2 or 3 of them installed. Easily activated by simply turning the dial.
Jacuzzi Hydro Therapy Massage Jets Hot Seat
Hot Seats are very popular and must be installed before the time, as installing these jets afterwards could be very costly. Easily identifiable by 2,3 or 4 Jets placed together on one seat, the hot seat delivers a better massage experience and is recommended.
Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell Durban
Manufacturer from SABS approved acrylic, the Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell meets the highest industry standard and comes in two variations. ABS, which is a low grade sanitary acrylic, used to manufacture contractor type baths. This ABS material does not have much of a life expectancy and dulls fairly quickly.
On the other hand, High Grade Sanitary Acrylic is UV resistant and delivers a superior finish that will make your Jacuzzi stand out in any environment. With 5 Colors to choose from you are sure to get the right color for your taste. The nice thing about High Grade Sanitary Acrylic is that if your bath should dull, you are able to restore it to its full splendor in a matter of hours.
The Acrylic is basically the finish of your surface and is reinforced with fiberglass at the back to give it strength. There are a few things to do that will help your Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell shine and perform at its peak for years to come.
Over Heating a Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell
When the Jacuzzi gets manufactured originally, a flat Acrylic sheet is used and then heated to about 141 degrees. Once at the desired temperature, it is removed from the oven and placed on a vacuum mould that extracts the air and leaves you with the desired shape and size. After that it is reinforced with Fiberglas to give it strength.
Where the problem comes in is when the Shell is then again heated above 45 degrees the acrylic wants to return to its original flat state. Once this happens, small cracks start to appear on the surface of the shell, just a few at first, but will eventually cover the whole surface of the Jacuzzi and then its time for a new one.
Cleaning Your Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell
Most of the household detergents leave a residue, so its not advised to use things like sunlight liquid or Handy Andy to clean the Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell. Simply get some metholated Spirits and gently wipe the Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell till clean.
Metholated Spirits can be used to clean the cover too.
How To Repair Your Jacuzzi Acrylic Shell
Cracks sometimes develop because of faulty installations or misuse of the Jacuzzi. Repairing these cracks are simple, but you must remember to keep in mind what caused the crack in the first place.
If it was a faulty installation, repairing the crack might be senseless unless you reinstall the bath so that it is supported correctly. The only way to find out if your Jacuzzi has been installed correctly, is to take out the water and then with your knuckles, tap the floor of the Jacuzzi to feel for support.
When tapping and you do not feel solid support under the floor but rather a hollow sound, your Jacuzzi might not be installed correctly. This will lead to the Jacuzzi hanging on the rim. With some Jacuzzi’s taking up to 1600 litres of water this would mean that the rim of the Jacuzzi is supporting 1,6 Tons of weight and was never designed to do that.
