Beachcomber hot tub water recommendations:

  • Maintain water pH between 7.2-7.8
  • Maintain sanitizer level between 3-5 ppm
  • Maintain total alkalinity between 100-120 ppm
  • Maintain calcium hardness level between 150-200 ppm
  • Drain hot tub once Total Dissolved Solids exceed 1500 ppm

Rinse off your hot tub filter (or as Beachcomber refers to it as a Microfilter) every week or two and spray it with a filter cartridge cleaner every month or so (or place it in an overnight filter bath).

Beachcomber Hot Tub Problems

As with any hot tub brand, problems may arise on occaision with Beachcomber hot tubs. Some of the typical problems may include leaks at the slice valve (or a stuck valve). These slice valves (knife valves) which are meant to provide easy service, are usually located on either side of pumps and/or the heater to facilitate service without needing to drain the spa. The problem with these slice valves is that they can become stuck in mid-position or leak. Always be sure that they are completely open (up position) when the spa is being used so that there is no flow restriction in the plumbing.

Heater Problems

FLO Problems - Pressure Switch

Older Beachcomber hot tub models used a pressure switch which may need adjustment or replacement in the case of a FLO or flow condition. Sometimes the problem is solved by cleaning the filter. The flow message may be solid or may flash depending on what the issue is. If the error code is flashing, then there could be an obstruction in the line or a clogged filter. If the message is solid, chances are the switch may need to be replaced. The pressure switch can also fail for many reasons including improper water chemistry. In that case it will need to be replaced.

Newer spas use Balboa built-in sensors and no longer have pressure switches. The pressure switch, when used, usually is mounted on the rear side of the heater tube.

If the pump is surging, first of all check that the water level of the spa is correct. On Beachcomber tubs, the plug in the center of the filter basket may not be properly in place. Also the RFM jet nozzles may be pointed toward the small suction in the footwell. In that case, redirect the jet so air is not pushed into the system this way.

Beachcomber jets can be exchanged with like jets of the same size. To remove the jets, just turn them counter-clockwise to unscrew them. To reinstall, turn the jet insert clockwise to screw them back in. Most jets can also be individually controlled by turning the jet face or ring around the jet. Turning it clockwise will turn off the water flow and turning it counter-clockwise will turn on the water flow.

The "Heatshield" is nothing to be frightened of, they just mean that is the spa cover.
