How to use the Air Controls on Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spas

Air controls are an essential component of hot tubs. Spa air controls regulate the pressure, temperature, and flow of the hot tub jets. These controls are typically located on the top sides of the spa.

The air helps to enhance the massage effect of the jets, making for a more relaxing spa experience. When the air control is open, more air is released into the jets, creating more massage bubbles and a stronger water stream.

Certain jet systems have their own “toggle” on/off air control. Each control introduces air into the water lines that supply specific jet groups. Simply press any air control button, or press the opposite side of the button to close.

Pro Tip: To minimise heat loss, all air controls should be closed when the spa is not in use. Certain ets may not draw air when Jets Pump 1 is running at low speed; this is considered normal.

How to adjust the individual jet flow on Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spas

The water flow through individual jets in your spa can be adjusted or turned off by rotating the outside jet ring. Some jets offer an adjustable centre nozzle that allows you to change the water discharge angle. To customise your personal massage, simply rotate the outside jet face.

What are Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spa Lighted Cup Holders and how do they work?

Cup holders in Jacuzzi® Spas are designed to keep glasses, cups and bottles secure while you enjoy a soak. Mounted on the top side of your spa, the cup holders feature a drainage hole on the bottom so that any excess liquid can easily drain away.

The Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spa features lighted cup holders that display soft light and illuminates the area around holders, creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere for spa users.

Additionally, the lighted cup holders make it easier to locate drinks in the dark and illuminate the spa area for added safety.

How to use the Massage Selector Valve on Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spa

Your Jacuzzi® spa has a massage selector that allows you to choose the massage experience you want.

The Jacuzzi® J-400™ Collection Spa massage selector consists of a valve that can be directed in three different positions.

Simply turn the valve to positions A (combo), B or C to divert water pressure to various jet groups.

Important reminders:

  • The valve is intended to operate in positions A, B, or C for optimum performance.
  • It is considered normal for sound levels within the valve to increase between these positions due to the large amounts of water flowing through it.
  • For optimum filtration benefits, always leave this valve in position A when the spa is covered and select positions B or C for maximum jet performance during spa use.
