Customer Question

I received a 1999 Watkins Jetsetter Model J hot tub. Finally got it all hooked up yesterday. Turned it on. The jets all worked but the heater light stays red. And when you adjust the temp to 104 it doesn't tell you the current temp of the water.

does the unit heat?...does the temp of water increase when set at 104? Does heater ever kick off?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The heater never kicks on. And I didn't have the water in long enough to see if it heated it at all.
