Spa Savant (3/5)



  1. Understood. I’ll investigate the threading there and get a better pic. I will order that split nut and try to find a flat gasket on that site also, just need to make sure I understand and order the right size… thanks!
  2. Yes I use an oil filter wrench it is very tight… Reposting pic below larger. I don’t see any gasket but maybe it’s tricky to see and I’ll try again… Thanks!
  3. It doesn’t seem like there is a groove for this gasket to fit into, the union is flat. Is there something else that should butt up against the ring? See pics. I placed it regardless and it is still leaking a drop every few seconds. Thanks again!
  4. Thanks for the quick reply. I’m a novice, how do I know which one to order online? I think when the person disconnected / winterized everything they may have lost the o-ring…
  5. When I reconnected my unions a week ago and refilled my hot tub I noticed there was a small leak from one of the unions. I tried tightening it but it still continues to leak. See photo. What is the best way to ensure this no longer leaks? It seems as if the water is coming out above the union (see arrow in photo). Thanks in advance!
  6. @RDspaguy Hopefully my final question: I noticed with this new system when the spa is idle for a while and I open the cover, the temperature is not displayed, there are instead 4 dashes. I click the pump on and the temp is then displayed and in range of the set temp. I checked the manual and all it says for the dashes is: “water temp unknown- after pump runs for 1 minute, temp will be displayed.” Is this normal to show up every time the hot tub is idle for a while? I’m just not used to seeing this as the prior system always displayed the temp, no matter how long it was idle. Not sure if it means I may have an airlock or some other issue... I did empty and refill the tub yesterday. Thank you!
  7. @RDspaguy I spoke with the seller, who contacted the manufacturer and they said I needed to set dip switches 1,3 and 6 to ON while the breaker was off, then after turning breaker on, to let it run its startup course and then move 1&6 to OFF. In addition, I followed your previous message instructions while 1,3&6 were ON, and selected setting #20 on the control panel, then turned 1&6 to off and Pump 2 now works!! THANK YOU!!
  8. @RDspaguy Got it. The Tech Sheet doesn't have a diagram for setup 20, only 21. I'm attaching here the jumpers like you asked yesterday. I labeled the pics, let me know if you see anything wrong here? -J88 to J6 -J1 to Expander Board 1 Thank you!
  9. @RDspaguy Thanks. I don’t see a separate diagram for Setup 20. I think I have all setup properly except for Dipswitch #3 for the 2nd high speed pump. Can I do damage to board by changing this dipswitch being as everything else is running properly?
  10. @RDspaguy There was no manual or card. Can I find setup 19 online somewhere? It does seem that I may need to flip dipswitch #3 ON to be in line with my old setup, but not sure if I should try… Also, I’m not sure if Pump 2 is one speed or two speed. With prior system, Pump 2 has always just functioned HIGH or OFF. I don’t know if that was a function of the pump or the setup. here was the link: https://pool-spa-supplies.com/balboa-control-balboa-water-group-retrofit-kit-bp7-tp600-g6406?utm_source=google_shopping Thanks!
  11. @RDspaguy @cranbiz See dipswitch pic as well as the diagram. Will post the jumper connections when I can access it again later tonight. Thanks again.
