Customer Question

I have a cal spa and just finished cleaning and filling. I have refilled and the jets will not turn off. I'm wondering if they will run until the water is heated?

My name is***** do my best to answer your question and resolve your issue.
Pump 1 will run low speed until the tub reaches the set temp or completes its first filter cycle..whichever comes first.
240v models heat about 5 degrees per hour. The default filter cycles are 2hrs 2X per day. The first filter cycle starts when powering up the tub and the next cycle will start 12hrs later.
It will usually take overnight or all day (10+hrs) to heat to 100F or higher.
I hope that answers your question. If you still have questions about the pump running, please let me know.
Thank you,
