  1. just because water/ice is on one side does not mean the leak is on that side I learned that last year.... check each side thoroughly if its a full foam tub the foam will be wet
  2. I need new cover for my 2001 sundance altamar anyone in Canada GTA area have any advice from whom to order a cover from or what to look for?
  3. just use a putty knife all the way around its just a double sided foam tape both mine came off easily 2001 altamar
  4. I tipped mu 2001 altamar up with just my 18 yr son helping lift (were not big muscle guys) I used a big pry bar and stacks of wood got it tipped up about 12 inches sitting on wood then we grabbed it and tipped it lift with your knees! up was easy down was harder.... get help putting it down we did it just the two of us and it was very heavy last time I got a third person made it easy
  5. the control panels are just on with foam backed adhesive tape use a metal putty knife and work around it a new control may or may not come with a new "adhesive gasket: so check when you order If its just the small remote panel check to see if its plugged in in the electrical box (turn power off) it plugs into the ribbon cable from the big control the small one is often unplugged because they cause errors I unplugged mine for that reason. IF you decide to replace small panel tie a string onto the cable end BEFORE you pull the cable makes install much easier to use the string to pull new cable big control pulling it up wont allow you access to to fix the screen they are sealed you would need to replace it
  6. If you have compressed air you could try with power OFF to tub blowing out the pump motor I had a pump on my sundance altamar that was shutting off same as yours I used my air compressor to blow out the motor and all kinds of junk came out (leaves, insulation ect) and after that it never did it again cost you nothing but 10 mins of your time to try f you have a compressor
  7. old post not sure if your still around Ok easy way to check is disconnect the heater install new fuse and see if it blows then do each pump until you find what's blowing the fuse also disconnect ozone generator if you have one are you sure its wired correctly to the disconect box
  8. so my 2001 sundance altamar is acting up again control panel randomly goes into lock mode AND the pumps if on will run on beyond the 20 min cycle (when you start them they should normally run 20 mins then shut off) But when it goes into lock mode they just run and never shut off i left them running 45 mins tonight then tripped the breaker to shut tub off lock mode goes away main board appears undamaged and is original control panel (top side) also is undamaged no cracks no water inside it so my question is is it the topside or the mainboard? I do have a small pump leak currently but water in NOT in contact with any electronic parts
  9. If you turn on the 2 speed pump does flow go away? remove your filter and see if flo code goes away if you turn on the 2 speed pump with the side panel off you can see if the flow switch moves my 2003 altamar my recirc pump was working BUT it was not moving enough water to close flow switch i replaced that pump to fix my problem (flo switch closed for me when i started the 2 speed pump)

  11. My hot tub cover hinge seam the threads came out we sewed it up but the thread only last approx 8 months then let go is there a special type of thread we could use? fishing line? its inside so it wont be visible when closed
  12. water in it? are you in an area where it could have frozen? if so not worth it if your handy and like to tinker you can trouble shoot for little cost and decide once you diagnose the problem(s) for the tripping breaker open up the tub panel (power OFF) disconnect the heater wires cap them take a pic so you remember where they go turn breaker back on if no trip its a heater if it still trips disconnect pumps/ozone one at a time until no more trip once you can get it to run you will see what works and if it leaks and at this point only have time into it
  13. so my tub had been 100% for months a few weeks ago I had my 2 speed pump fail (orig to 2001) the start cap went and the wet end impeller broke on removal I swapped in a spare pump and wet end I had and all was well last night I noticed the lower drain plug was leaking so i got my oring kit and tried noting would stop the leak it went form bad to worse at this point i suspect the wet end where the drain plug screws in might be cracked or damaged (cant see it) I got it down to a steady drip when pump was running I also tried the plugs from spare pumps and no go still leaks (all old orings) leak is running away from everything all electric staying dry we jumped into tub after 20 mins no problem did another 20 and my control panel went into lock mode (did this last year with remote panel plugged in, still not plugged in) got out about 5 mins tub still locked I tripped breaker still locked waited 10 mins finally unlocked seemed to work fine Ill go out later and check it I have 1 sundance dealer 45 mins away I'm going to see if they have the correct oring in stock today Now questions pump wet end plugs are plastic as is wet end is cracking common/normal (if it is cracked) its black plastic will any glues/epoxy stick to them? lock mode I did NOT touch or move any wires in the past 2 weeks I messed with the pump plug leak which is not getting anything wet except base wood
  14. I did mine last year I used a putty knife all the way around to free the foam then it just came off the small panels were know for failure or causing errors it may just be unplugged from the main control panel harness I replaced mine within months I had errors so I unplugged it
