What Is a Spa Blower?

Save

Spa air blowers are an essential part to any spa. Air blowers are used in various types of jetted, heated and water-filled tubs for therapeutic effects. When defective, these devices should be replaced, not repaired.

Function

  • Spa air blowers introduce air into the water-filled spa through multiple injectors placed throughout the tub. Blowers are designed to enhance a person's experience using a spa by creating a massaging sensation and providing relaxation.

Specifications

  • Spa air blowers are made up of a fan motor and housing. They may be installed so that they run through one single channel cavity with multiple holes in it, or to a manifold that distributes air pressure through smaller lines into the water. They typically run on 110V circuits but some may use 220V.

Replacement

  • It is recommended that spa air blowers be replaced if they become defective. Since there are not many parts to an air blower, repairing a defective unit is not cost effective. Safety precautions should be observed when dealing with electricity in a typically wet environment.
