  1. Is the long life titanium worth it for extra $15? What are the flexible heater cables for an extra $6.95? Thanks.
  2. If I leave the heater leads connected to the board, reset the GFCI and power up the spa, it seems to trip as soon as the heater should become engaged. So I am not getting any reading on voltage across the heater leads in this scenario but I do get about 9 ohms. If I disconnect the tabs from the leads on heater, push them out of the way of the heater leads, the heater reads the same 9 ohms. Where I turn the tub on the leads on the board read 0, but when the board attempts to engage the heater it reads 110v. When I disconnected the tabs I found some white powdery corrosion. I cleaned up the corrosion, reconnected everything and it still trips right as the heater is engaging.
  3. My spa runs on 110V and is plugged into an exterior weather protected GFCI outlet. I was having no functional issues with my hot tub before I recently drained, cleaned and refilled the hot tub. I started the spa, but after about 3 minutes of running the GFCI outlet tripped. I started trouble shooting by disconnecting components one by one from the main board. First I disconnected the top side control panel, but it still tripped. Second I disconnected the ozone, but it still tripped. Then I disconnected the light, and it seemed to run a bit longer, but it still tripped. As my spa runs on 110V and the heater is disengaged when I put the jets on full, I tested the heater by putting the jets on full. When I put the jets on full the GFCI does not trip. When the high jet cycle ends, the GFCI trips about a minute later. I am guessing now that the issue is with the heater element. Where do I go from here? Thanks.
