Fixed

The spa heater stopped working, it’d ignite but not stay lit (yes I paid the gas bill). So following the logic, there’s enough gas pressure to ignite but not enough gas flow to keep it alight. Point the finger at the regulator and lines remove. Lines clean, adjust the regulator and say they really should spec stainless for outdoors. The adjustment thread broke, reassemble with liberal thread sealant and after cure (yes and the bubble test) I had a nice hot spa.

It’s a poorman’s fix and I’ll fix it/have it fixed later when there’s money.

    Thanks, but why use aluminum outside?

    A nice hot spa must feel nicer and hotter when you have had to do a bit of problem solving to get it.
