Once vacuum formed, the Rim Flow Jacuzzi shell is re-enforced with fiber glass to give it strength.

Voted as most popular executive style Jacuzzi sold it is sure to satisfy your wildest desires.

Designed with an overflow system that allows the water to be skimmed continuously this beauty delivers a much high level of water cleanliness. The correct way to use a Jacuzzi is to shower first, before getting in. Your skin sheds oil, hair and dead cells, which ends up in the water. Some manufacturers install a protein skimmer as a standard feature in their Jacuzzi’s, if they do not support the Rim Flow feature.

Rim Flow only means the water flows over the rim, where other models can only be filled 4 fingers above the jets, or the water needs to cover the safety feature of the protein skimmer. With the water flowing over the rim, it brings a new set of challenges when trying to install these big complicated Jacuzzi Types. There are a few manufacturers in South Africa, who specializes in the manufacture and installation of these executive units.

Bellow you can see an example of a Rim Flow Jacuzzi we installed for a customer and they finished it off with a beautiful wooden deck. The balancing tank is placed underneath the Jacuzzi and must be installed in such a way that it is accessible after the finishing has been done. The balancing tanks capacity on a Rim Flow Jacuzzi Should be 500 liters.

The purpose of the balancing tank is to control the Rim Flow feature, with the water overflowing constantly, there needs to be ample room for the water to be displaced once people start getting into the Jacuzzi. So at any given time there should be 200 liters of water in the Rim Flow Balancing Tank. As people start getting into the Jacuzzi, the water that is displaced fills up in the empty space of the balancing tank. When those people get out again the Rim Flow System pumps the water back into the Jacuzzi maintaining the Rim Flow Feature seamlessly.

 The 110 mm over flow pipe is attached to the one end of the rim and feeds the balancing tank by means of gravity, the water flows into the tank and then back into the Jacuzzi. This system makes it compulsory for this Jacuzzi to have a double pump system. The heating system is then plumbed into this cycle. So the water flows from the Jacuzzi into the balancing tank, then into the heater, the filter and back into the Jacuzzi, but doesn’t flow out of the main Hydro Therapy massage Jets. There should be a separate aim flow where that water returns to the Jacuzzi.

If this is not the case then you need to check how many water jets are installed. In most cases if the water jets are 50 mm/32 mm, then one pump can take up to 8 jets. Some manufacturers put a series of smaller jets in place of the larger jets, but the Rim Flow Jacuzzi should still only use 2 pumps. So most times the balancing tank is connected to the one pump and the water jets are connected to the other pump, the pump connected to the tank is usually the one that also heats the water and is controlled by the thermostat.
