Rated 4 out of 5Â by SidK This product is really valuable and works as advertised. Some installation challenges and use issues.
I'm really glad I got this whirlpool heater. I'm enjoying longer, hotter baths. And that is very good for sore muscles and medical conditions.
Installation notes: You will need a channel-lock pliers large enough for the pipe - probably 12-inch handle. If you are not comfortable with both plumbing and electrical installation, hire an expert. Follow the instructions carefully. Installation is dependent on having a good grounding location for the heavy grounding wire available under the tub. That is supposed to be on the pump, but it may not be there or may not be reachable. If it's not there, installation may be a real hassle. A 3-prong GFI outlet is also essential.
Use: The heater will keep a hot tub hot indefinitely, and will slowly warm a warm tub to hot. But it is not regulated - it will keep heating until the bath is 104 degrees F. If this is too hot for you, there are two options. You can run a trickle of cold water into the bath. Or, since the heater is tied to the pump, you can turn off the jets, and the bath will cool. You may want to buy a hot tub thermometer, as the heat can fool you.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RexWin Works great! Make sure to read instructions - GFI!
This will not heat a tub full of water very quickly (e.g., from warm to hot); however, it does keep hot-water hot very well (great for a relaxing 2-hour soak). To answer the earlier reviewer's question, the heater works automatically by sensing water flow. It is set to heat the water to 104 degrees and does not have any adjustment feature that I could find. When you install, be sure to follow the grounding instructions, including grounding the chasis and testing the GFI circuit.
