Frequently Asked Questions

Bullfrog Spas Troubleshooting

Operational & Technical Issues

Why is my spa overheating?

If the spa is located in an area that is experiencing hot weather, it is normal to have the spa water temperature rise.

To help keep your spa cooler, adjust the spa’s filtration cycles to no more than three hours per day, and only one hour per day during the warmer summer months. Set the cycles to run during later evening or early morning hours when the outside air temperature is cooler. During the summer, set only one filter cycle per day.

Open the cover for several minutes, long enough to allow the water to cool down. Repeat a couple times weekly as necessary. For safety reasons, never leave your spa unattended with the cover open.

If OHH is displayed on the control panel, this means that the thermometer has detected spa water temperature above 110 degrees F. Do not use the spa at this temperature. Take the advised steps above to cool your spa water to below 106 degrees F before use.

Why won't my spa heat?

If your spa temperature is low, first check the thermostat to see if it has been turned down or set to low heat range. Adjust the thermostat to desired temperature or set to high heat range.

Another common reason for your spa temperature to be low is because the high limit sensor has tripped. Press any button on your control panel to reset the system.

If neither of the above steps works, your heating system may be defective. Contact your authorized Bullfrog Spas Dealer for further diagnosis.

Why is my GFCI breaker tripping?

Warning: You must be a qualitied electrician and or service technician to perform diagnosing or serial injury or death can result: High voltage components are in use.

If the spa was recently installed, the most common reason the GFCI would trip is the Load Neutral (white wire) between the spa and GFCI which must be connected to the Load Neutral port in the GFCI breaker. If the neutral wire is connected to the neutral busbar, the breaker will trip during startup. The neutral connection must not have contact to the ground on the load side of the breaker or it will trip.

If the spa is not tripping immediately upon startup, a process of elimination should be used to identify the problem. Disconnect one component at a time from the control board and try restarting the spa. If the breaker trips, reconnect the component then try again by disconnecting a different component. Continue repeating this process until the breaker does not trip. Components include pumps, heaters, lights, stereos, ozone, etc. If the breaker does not trip after disconnecting the component, then the disconnected component is the source of the problem. Once you have determined which component is at fault, replace the component.

If you have not found the source of the problem after disconnecting each spa component individually, disconnect all components from the control board and try starting the spa. If the breaker still trips, a certified electrician will need to inspect the breaker and wiring.

Why is my spa making a vibration noise?

A light vibration noise is normal while the spa pumps and motors are running.

If your spa’s vibration noise level seems excessive, the first thing to check for is the spa motor’s shipping bolts. Each spa motor has a shipping bolt that can contribute to the vibrating noise and can be removed once your spa is delivered and installed. The bolts have tags with red lettering for easy identification.

If the bolts have been removed and your spa still makes an excessive vibration noise, contact your spa dealer for further assistance.

Why is my spa pump creating a burning smell or making excessive noise?

If your spa pump is creating a burning smell or making excessive noise, the pump motor is defective. This can happen when running the pump during high ambient outside temperatures or due to excessive run times. Please contact your authorized Bullfrog Spas dealer for replacing the pump.

Why are my control pad and spa equipment not operating?

If your hot tub control pad and spa equipment are not operating, that means you have no electrical power to the spa. Turn on or reset the GFCI circuit breaker to supply the spa with power again. If this does not solve the problem, have a qualified Electrician check the electrical service for issues.

Another reason your control pad and equipment won’t work is if the fuse (20 or 30A depending on the system) has blown. Contact your authorized Bullfrog Spas Dealer for repair/replacement.

Why are my hot tub jets not working?

If your hot tub jets are surging on and off, the first thing to check is your water level as it might be too low. Adjust water to the water level indication mark on the faceplate of the filter assembly. 

Next, check your filters as they may be dirty. If so, clean or replace them. 

If your spa’s jets seem weak or are not working, first double-check to make sure that the valves are open. JetPaks have valves at the bottom that open and close by turning the valve. Adjustable jets on M Series, A Series, R Series, and STIL spas open and close by turning the jet face. Adjustable jets on X Series spas open and close by turning the outer ring. 

The next thing to check is the suction fitting(s) normally located at the bottom of your spa shell to see if they are blocked. Remove any debris you find by hand or with a spa vacuum. 

If your jets are not working after filling your spa, you most likely have an airlock in the pump. Follow the directions in the “how do I fix an airlock in the pump” section below.

Why won’t my spa won't work after draining and refilling it?

If your spa pumps/jets are not working after filling your spa, you most likely have an airlock in the pumps. Follow the directions in the “how do I fix an airlock in the pump” section below.

Why won’t my spa won't work after draining and refilling it?

To prevent airlocks when filling your spa, be sure to open all valves in the JetPaks and all other jets in the spa before filling to allow as much air as possible to escape from the system during the filling process. Fill your spa through the filter by taking the filter cap off and put the hose directly in the filter. Detailed instructions for filling each spa series are found in your owner’s manual.

Your hot tub’s pumps must be primed directly after filling to ensure correct operation of your spa and get rid of any airlocks. After initial startup, verify that the home status screen appears on the panel.

Depending on your spa model, your spa has either 1,2, or 3 pumps. To prime the pumps, press the “Jets 1” button once to prime in low-speed. After the pump turns on and water is visibly flowing from the jets wait a few seconds and then press “Jets 1” again to initiate highspeed operation of Pump 1. The pump has primed when water is flowing from the jets.

If your spa is equipped with a second jet pump, repeat the priming process for Pump 2 by pressing the “Jets 2” button once to turn on low speed and then a second time to turn Pump 2 on high.

If your spa has a 3rd pump, press the “Jets 3” button to prime the third jet pump. All pumps will have primed when water is observed flowing from the jets associated with each pump.

On rare occasions, priming the pumps will not get rid of an airlock. The next step is to remove the front panel and locate the pump with an airlock. The wet-end of the pump has a bleed valve—loosen this until all the air escapes and water starts to drip out, or loosen the union on the pump to let the air out until you see water. Do not attempt this while the spa pump is running. If you need help doing this or this does not resolve the problem, please contact your authorized Bullfrog Spa Dealer.

Why do my spa jets turn off during operation?

If your jets turn off automatically after either 30 or 60 minutes, this is completely normal. The automatic timer has completed its cycle. Simply turn the pump back on to start a new cycle.

Another reason your jets can turn off unexpectedly is if the pump has overheated due to the vents on the equipment door being blocked. Clear away any items from the vents and wait a while to see if your jets work again.

The last reason your spa jets can turn off is if the pump motor is defective. In this case, contact your authorized Bullfrog Spas dealer for service.

Why are my hot tub jets/pump not turning off?

If you are trying to turn off the pump for jets 1 on your spa and it appears that they are not turning off, your spa is in the middle of a filtration cycle. Spas not equipped with a dedicated filtration pump will turn on automatically, using jet pump 1 on low speed, to filter and/or heat. This is normal spa operation.

What do I do if my spa is leaking?

If you notice your spa is losing water, check all fittings and equipment in the equipment compartment for the source of leakage. If a leak is detected, tighten the fitting by hand. If the leak persists, you cannot find the source of the leak, or the leak is coming from the shell, contact your authorized Bullfrog Spas Dealer.

Water Quality Issues

How do I get rid of green water in my hot tub?

The first reason why your hot tub can turn green is from algae growing in the spa. This happens because of a lack of sanitizer (chlorine or bromine). Super sanitize (shock) the spa water to get rid of algae and other growth in the spa.

If the spa water has had algae growing for too long of a time, shocking the spa water may not be enough. At that point, you would want to drain your spa, give it a good cleaning, and refill your spa. Be sure to properly maintain your spa pH and sanitizer levels going forward to prevent future algae growth.

A second reason why hot tub water can appear green is from metals and minerals in the water (usually copper). Check with your spa dealer about local water conditions to see if your area has copper in the ground water. If this is the case, your dealer will be able to provide custom tips for keeping your spa water clean and clear.

How do I get rid of mold in my hot tub?

Mold, mildew, and fungus like to grow in warm, damp places. The first step in preventing these from growing in your spa is to maintain your spa water. You should add sanitizer following every use.

It’s also important to regularly clean all surfaces on and around your spa, including the cover (the underside and the top), cup holders, headrests, etc. We recommend cleaning those surfaces every 30-45 days.

Why is my spa water cloudy?

Cloudy spa water is usually caused by non-filterable liquid waste (e.g. perspiration) and a lack of proper maintenance. First, check your spa’s pH level and adjust if needed. High pH levels are a common cause cloudy water.

Next, test your sanitizer (chlorine or bromine) levels. If the sanitizer level is too low, add more. Wait two hours and test the water again. Add more sanitizer as necessary then wait two more hours. Repeat this process until the sanitizer levels consistently read correctly. Always run the pumps for 15 minutes with the cover open after adding any chemicals.

If you are using the FROG @ease for Bullfrog Spas water care system, first make sure the SmartChlor cartridge is not empty. Replace the cartridge if necessary. If it is not empty, turn the dial setting up 1 number and monitor chlorine levels for a few days while maintaining water balance. If needed, turn the dial up again. The entire FROG @ease System including a FROG @ease Mineral Cartridge needs to be replaced every four months. Without the minerals, SmartChlor will not be enough to sanitize the hot tub.

If your sanitizer levels are generally testing at correct levels and your spa water is still cloudy, you can increase filtration times to see if that helps.

You may also want to clean or replace the filters if you have not done so recently.

Non-filterable micro-particulate waste (e.g. dust) can also contaminate the water leading to cloudy water. To remove these substances, use a water clarifier product as per the manufacturer’s instructions.

How do I get rid of foam/bubbles in my hot tub?

People and their swimwear introduce most of the unwanted contaminants that cause foam and bubbles in a hot tub. To reduce the amount of foam and contaminants introduced to your spa water:

  1. As much as possible, avoid entering your spa with sunscreen, lotions, deodorants, shampoos, or similar substances on your body, or detergents on your clothes.
  2. Do not wash swimwear you intend to wear in your spa with detergents. Many people keep a dedicated “spa” suit that is never laundered with detergent but simply rinsed well after use.
  3. Rinse off in the shower before (and after) spa use.

For a temporary fix for foam and bubbles in your spa, add an anti-foam or foam remover as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This will get rid of the foam almost immediately but will only be temporary, lasting a day or two.

The best way to control foam is to super sanitize (shock) the water. This will destroy the soap agents that normal levels of sanitizer will not. Make sure to properly maintain your spa pH and sanitizer levels and avoid introducing the unwanted contaminants listed above to prevent future foam and bubbles.

How do I prevent a yellow water line from building in my spa?

With normal use of the spa, oils, lotions, and hair products can build up on the surface of the water in small amounts. This could leave a yellow water line around the perimeter. This buildup can be easily removed using a spa surface cleaner or its equivalent. Avoid using cleaning agents that leave soap residue in the water.

WARNING: Never allow your spa surface to be exposed to alcohol, acetone (nail polish remover), nail polish, dry cleaning solution, lacquer thinners, gasoline, pine oil, abrasive cleaners, or any other household chemicals other than those listed. These chemicals void the warranty.

What do I do if my skin is sensitive to hot tub chemicals?

If your skin is sensitive to hot tub chemicals, make sure to rinse off after you get out of the spa. Using lotions to moisturize your skin can also help.

It’s also important to making sure the pH and sanitizer levels are correct in your hot tub. Low pH levels (less than 7.4) can cause discomfort to your skin and as well as corrosion to the spa equipment. To increase pH levels, add a pH increaser.

If your sanitizer levels are correct and you still experience discomfort, try switching to a different sanitizing agent—If you are using chlorine, try bromine, and vice versa.

Your dealer may have additional tips based on the chemical makeup of your local water supply. Any allergic reactions should be treated by a medical professional.

How do I get rid of debris in my spa water?

Debris from wind, trees, and users will occasionally accumulate on the bottom of the spa. The filtration system will remove the smaller debris. Large or heavy debris can be removed with a hand-held spa vacuum available at your Bullfrog Spas dealer.

Hot Tub Parts & Accessories 

Where do I find replacement parts and accessories for my hot tub?

If you are in need of replacement parts or accessories for your Bullfrog Spa, please call us at 406-251-1340.

Why are my spa headrests disintegrating?

Headrest discoloration and/or degradation is accelerated by high sanitizer use and improper ventilation after shock treatments. To prevent your spa headrests from disintegrating, remove the them during and after shock treating the spa water or when sanitizer levels are high. In addition, leave your spa cover open for at least 30 minutes after shocking to ensure the headrests are not affected.

It’s also a good idea to open the cover for just a few minutes a couple times a week even if your spa is not being used or lightly used so that the excess chemical gasses building up under the cover can escape.

We also recommend regularly cleaning all pillows with mild soap, water, and a clean cloth. Monthly, treat the pillows using a non-petroleum-based product such as 303 Protectant. This will maintain water resistance and luster of the product.

How do I replace my hot tub cover clips?

Broken clips are from strong winds or failure to undo them before opening the cover and is not a warranty part.

Contact us to get replacement clips.

To replace the cover clip, first remove the male end of the clip. Then, use clippers to make two small diagonal cuts on the clip loop. This makes an opening for the cover loop. Insert the cover loop into the opening and push the cover loop entirely into the clip.

Why can’t I get a wifi signal on my hot tub?

If you can’t get a wifi signal on your Bullfrog Spa, first ensure that both the primary and partner units are correctly installed. The primary unit should be connected to the spa’s control board and the partner unit to the wifi router. If there is a solid blue light on both units, then the connection is present. If one or both of the units does not have a light, or the light is flashing, refer to the Gecko wifi troubleshooting website.

Why can’t I get a bluetooth signal on my hot tub?

First, make sure the in.stream2 unit is turned on from the topside control panel.

Next, try adjusting the stereo settings to zero (or to center).

If there is no power coming from the motherboard, the control box will need to be replaced. 

If there is power coming from the motherboard but the in.stream2 will not turn on, the in.stream2 unit will need to be replaced.

Control Panel Error Code Questions

My spa has a Freeze Mode error code, what do I do?

Your spa is equipped with a freeze protection mode. When potentially freezing outside temperatures are detected, your control system will turn on to check the water temperature. If heating is necessary to protect your spa from freezing conditions, your spa may turn on and heat to a safe temperature. A notification will display on the main control screen indicating this mode is engaged. If your spa shows this error code for more than 24 hours, contact your dealer for further diagnosis.

My spa has a Low Flow / Heater Overheating error code, what do I do?

First, remove the filters and try running the spa without them. Make sure the area is clear of debris. Turn the pumps on and off several times each to try purging out any airlocks in the pumps.

Next, check for blockage in the pumps. To do so, turn the spa off and drain the spa. Disconnect the intake side of the pump and check inside for blockages. Spa accessories such as a scumball, leaves, or other debris can be sucked into the pumps and need to be cleared away.

To better prevent future blockages, make sure you are using genuine Bullfrog Spas filters as other filters may not prevent debris from entering the pumps.

If the water flow is good and there is still a flow condition code, the sensors on the heater should be tested. The heater may need to be replaced due to a bad sensor. If the issue still persists, the circuit board will need to be replaced.

If the spa is new, check to ensure the power cord is connected properly. In addition, check the power connections to the pump. Finally, check the control set up for proper operation.

What does filtration suspended mean?

This code does not indicate an error, it indicates that the spa filtration cycle has been suspended because a user activated the spa while it was performing a filtration cycle. No further action is required. The next regularly scheduled filtration cycle will occur.

What is a purge period?

In order to maintain sanitary conditions and protect against freezing, your spas pumps will purge water from their respective plumbing by running all pumps at the beginning of each filter cycle.

The filtration schedule shown on the screen will apply to the main filtration pump. If your spa uses a circulation pump configured to run 24 hours, the screen will show you the purge setting instead of filtration. The purges are pre-programmed for a fixed number of minutes; therefore, the duration will be set to N/A on the screen, and only the start time can be modified.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I won’t be using my hot tub for a long period or during vacation?

2-6 weeks of unuse:

If the spa will not be used for at least two weeks, lower the temperature to the lowest setting of 80 F (26°C) or place in low range heat mode. Lowering the temperature will cut the cost of operation; however, you will need to adjust the temperature setting approximately 4 hours before use in order to heat the spa to 100 F (38°C).

Even though you will not be using the spa, be sure to maintain the spa water and frequently check that the spa is functioning correctly. Failure to do so could lead to corrosion, staining, or scaling to the spa and its equipment.

During periods of freezing temperatures, a spa that has malfunctioned may be subject to damaged plumbing or equipment as a result of ice buildup within the spa. If the spa cannot be checked and maintained on a weekly basis, then consider winterizing the spa.

 

More than 6 weeks of unuse:

When you are not planning to use the spa for six or more weeks, or when someone is not able to maintain the spa on a weekly basis, you should use Away mode. For extended absences you may also choose to winterize the spa.

How do I winterize my hot tub?

Bullfrog Spas are designed to function well, stay warm, and hold up through the coldest of weather and do not require winterization unless you will be leaving your spa unattended for 6 or more weeks.

Either way, we recommend to check-in on your spa weekly during winter months to help prevent freeze damage.

To winterize your Bullfrog Spa, follow the detailed instructions in this article:

https://www.bullfrogspas.com/blog/how-to-winterize-a-hot-tub/

Can I fill a spa in freezing winter temperatures?

If your spa is being delivered during the winter or you need to drain and refill your spa during freezing temperatures, you may be wondering if the cold weather mean you can’t fill your spa with water.

Luckily, you can fill your spa in freezing winter temperatures. To keep your spa components safe from the cold, just turn your spa on as soon as it is full so the heater and pumps keep everything from freezing.

Sometimes, your dealer may postpone delivery of your spa during winter storms because it can be unsafe for them to deliver a heavy spa with snow, rain, or ice on the ground. Once it is safe again, they will deliver your spa and can help you fill it up and get it started.

If you don’t plan on using your spa during the winter, follow this guide on winterizing your hot tub. However, using a hot tub in the winter is considered the most enjoyable time by many spa owners.

What do I do when my spa loses power in freezing temperatures?

If your Bullfrog Spa loses power during freezing temperatures either due to a power outage or a malfunction and the GFCI won’t reset, you will want to help keep the spa and its components warm until power is restored or your dealer can repair the malfunction.

Do not drain your spa. Leave your cover on to retain as much heat as possible.

Remove the access panel to your spa and place a small space heater inside the cabinet on a low setting. This will help keep the pumps and pipes warm. You can also place a blanket over the equipment area to help keep everything insulated.

Frequently monitor the spa until power is restored and your spa is functioning again.

How do I move my spa?

A cart or dolly that can support at least 900 pounds is the best way to move your spa. Slip sheets or carpets can also be used to drag a spa on most surfaces.

Spas can be moved in the horizontal or vertical position, but do not lift the spa on the door side because the door side cannot support the weight of the spa and you may break the door.

Be careful of common obstacles in your path such as overhanging tree limbs, awnings, protruding gas meters, water meters, and A/C units.

Which filter cycle (water care operation mode) should I use for my spa?

*The following information is for Bullfrog Spas model years 2019 and newer. Please refer to owner’s manual for your spa for the most accurate information.

The best filter cycle for your situation will depend on how often you use the spa and what time of day you typically use the spa. The two most common modes are Standard-beginner and Super Energy Savings. The factory default setting is Super Energy Saver mode.

In the descriptions of each mode below, “economy mode” means that the set point will be reduced by 20°F* (11°C), which means that the heating system will not be engaged unless the temperature falls to 20°F (11°C) below the spa’s set temperature. The filtration schedule shown on the screen will apply to the main filtration pump. If your spa uses a circulation pump configured to run 24 hours, the screen will show you the purge setting instead of filtration. The purges are pre-programmed for a fixed number of minutes; therefore, the duration will be set to N/A on the screen, and only the start time can be modified.

How do I drain my spa?

Step 1: Turn-off the main electrical breaker to spa.

Step 2: Locate the drain below the equipment compartment door.

Step 3: Pull the drain out with a slight clockwise turn. Use pliers if needed. The drain is fully extended at approximately 2 inches (5 centimeters).

Step 4: Remove drain cap. The drain spout will not drain when fully extended.

Step 5: Attach a standard garden hose. Push the drain spout in halfway to actuate the drain. The Spa will drain about 5 gallons (20 liters) per minute. Ensure that the drainage is in an area safely away from window wells or basement entries.

Step 6: Once the spa is fully drained, pull the drain spout out all the way, remove the hose, replace the drain cap, and push the drain in all the way.

How do I remove and replace my spa equipment door?

M Series Door Removal

Step 1: Remove trim strips from trim channels by pulling carefully and firmly, working from the bottom of the trim strip to the top. Place trim strips aside.

Step 2: Remove door – Carefully pull bottom of door out toward you. Carefully grab the bottom corner of the door and pull it out enough that you can slip your other hand in behind the side of the door about 4-5 inches (10-13 cm) up from the bottom. From there you will pull the door firmly away from the spa until the snap on the door pulls out of the snap feature in the rib. Continue to pull the door away until the second snap on the other side pulls out. The door can then be dropped out of the groove on top and removed from the spa.

Step 3: Electrical Disconnect – be sure to disconnect any lighting or any other electrical wiring that is mounted onto the door before completely removing it.

Step 4: When removed, lean door against spa. To reinstall spa door, reverse the instructions above.

 

M Series Door Installation 

Step 1: Electrical – Reconnect any lighting or electrical devices on the door before installing.

Step 2: Door – Slip the upper lip of the door into the top behind the lip of the spa. Lower the door while gently pushing on it until you feel the snaps line up with the snap features in the ribs. Starting from one side, force the first snap into place and then force the other side until the door is secured.

Step 3: Replace trim strips by snapping each carefully into the trim channel

 

STIL Door Removal

STIL spas are designed so that there are no visible fasteners from the exterior. Snap features in the corners and the cabinet panels allow for simple equipment area access, however, it is important to follow these recommended door removal instructions to avoid damaging the door or corner panels.

Step 1: Remove Corners – It is important to remove the front two corners overlapping the door before attempting to remove the door itself. This is done by placing a short flathead screwdriver below the corner and slipping it up partway behind the corner and using it as a lever to pry out the bottom half of the corner outward. Once this is done, grab the corner by the bottom and pull it straight out allowing the top snap to come free. Pull corner down and out of the groove on the top.

Step 2: Remove Door – Once both front corners are removed, look on each side of the front door to see the snap feature built into the cabinet. To remove the door, start by placing a longer flathead screwdriver or short pry bar into the center of the snap feature and use it as a lever to pop the door out of the first snap. Grab the base of the door and carefully begin pulling it out such that the rest of the snaps come free one by one across the length of the door. The door can then be dropped out of the groove on top and removed from the spa.

Step 3: Electrical Disconnect – be sure to disconnect any lighting or any other electrical wiring that is mounted onto the door before completely removing it.

Step 1: Electrical –Reconnect any lighting or electrical devices on the door before installing.

Step 2: Door – Slip the upper lip of the door into the top groove of the extrusion. Lower the door while gently pushing on it until you feel the snaps line up with the snap features in the ribs. Starting from one side, force the first snap into place. Continue down the length of the door and forcefully push the cabinet into each of the snaps until the door is completely in and secured. You can feel along the bottom to make sure all are in place and no gaps are present.

Step 3: Corner – Slip the upper lip of the corner into the top groove of the spa. Starting from the top force the first snap into place, if the corner has slipped down and is not flush with the top groove this is the best time to push it back up into place. Continue down the length of the corner and forcefully push it into each of the snaps until the corner is completely secured. The corner should fit tightly against the cabinet on both sides.
