Hi all, New to this forum but not to Hot Tubs...
Tub: Jacuzzi J-345 50th anniversary model
Capacity: 336 gallons
Power: 240vac @ 60amp, can run pumps and heater at same time.
Circ Pump: Yes
Use: Year round, once every weeknight, sometime twice a day on W/E by two clean average size naked humanoids.
Last week we had a storm and it killed my outside driveway light and my Jacuzzi's ozonator. I was chatting with the Jacuzzi support guy. He told me the ozonator originally used on my tub had a problem of gunking up with brown acid, and they now install a new design that does not have that problem. I asked him for the part number but he could not find it. I called back today and his recommendation is to contact a dealer... I am an Electronic Engineer and can replace this myself, but I have no idea what to order. Can anyone shed some light on this problem?
The ozonator it has now is a blue box smaller than a shoe box. I think it's a CD type as it used to make a high pitched noise. Two ports, one unconnected and one with a long 1/4" tube. There are two check valves, with a flow restrictor between them, and then it connects to a fitting on a larger tube.
Help me please. I don't trust it without the ozone. Thanks, Jim
