Is Your Spa’s Ozonator Working? + Ozonator Troubleshooting

Found in newer model spas, ozonators keep water clean & fresh feeling while minimizing the amount of chemicals needed for water health.

A working ozonator produces a consistent stream of bubbles that is noticeable from the water’ s surface.

Have an ozonator but don’t see any bubbles? Watch the video below or read on to learn how to troubleshoot and get your spa back to its bubbly best!*

Note: to keep your ozonator in top shape, it’s important to check & clean it every 4-6 months 

How to Know if Your Ozonator’s Working:

  • Look for bubbles: a working ozonator will produce a regular stream of bubbles from your hot tub’s drain. No bubbles or small bubbles could mean your ozonator needs to be cleaned.

Tools You’ll Need:

  • Pair of adjustable pliers
  • Eyeglass or flat-head screwdriver
  • Pair of working gloves

How to Clean Your Ozonator:

  • Find the ozone unit: typically, it will be mounted against the wall inside your hot tub’s equipment area.
  • Find the injector lines: Look for a check valve, a clear line that will be connected to a yellow line. This line is connected to the Ozonator, which is a thick black and white line near the bottom of the equipment compartment.
  • Unplug them: disconnect the ozonator valve from the yellow line. Check if the bubbles in your hot tub stop. If the bubbles continue, call AllSpa service for assistance.
  • Remove the check valve: if the check valve is removed and the bubbles return, you may have a faulty check valve.
  • Clean your injector: with your check valve removed, take the clear injector line and dip it into a cup of white vinegar. The vinegar will dissolve residue in the line and should cause your hot tub to bubble normally.
