Normally I get $175 and hour for consulting services...but, if you want to send me the the watch, I'd be happy to give you 1/2 hour of my time and answer any questions you might have.

In Topic: Gfci Tripping After 30 Seconds Of Running

Did you disconnect the heater element COMPLETELY (ALL wires going to it)?


HIGHLY unlikely the problem is the pump. In fact, of all the things it could be, the pump would be last on the list.


In order of commonality;


Bad heater

Bad ozonator

Bad blower



And no, a dirty filter would not cause a GFCI to trip.

Put it all back together, fill and turmn on the spa. When the spa calls for heat, is the element getting voltage? If it is, what is the amp draw?

What country are you in? (there's no such thing a dual phase, and it's EXTREMELY rare if not unheard of for a private home to have 3 phase in the USA. There's single phase and three phase. Perhaps you're talking about voltage??????).
