Sundance Altamar, one owner. Installed in 2005 at our previous house. By the time we were ready to move in 2014 the small control panel had stopped responding and just before we were going to list the two speed (?) pump had developed a bearing noise. I pulled the pump meaning to have it rebuilt (there's a good shop in Tacoma, WA) but getting the house ready took precedence. We had the hot tub moved to our current house and set down on the driveway under the existing deck. Plan was to rebuild the deck to hold the hot tub. Plan came to fruition this year. Poor Altamar sat on the driveway neglected and ignored for about 7 years. I did little save for making sure to put a couple of heat lamps in the surround during the few below freezing days we have here in Seattle. It's now cleaned up inside (mostly) and out, waiting on some work on the surround wood and a good stain and seal. I did get the motor/pump rebuilt and it does hold water with seemingly no leaks. We are looking forward to using it (after a deep clean inside!) after we get the electricity run to it. I do need to pull the control panels up and off for obvious reasons- the small one doesn't work and the large one had some Morning Glory grow through it (I'm a bad person). I've had a cursory look but can't really tell how these pull up and off. Any suggestions? Thanks- Val I also included two of moving day; one of it on the driveway and one about to be lifted up on the deck. FYI deck has been structurally engineered to hold weight of hot tub and occupants.
I have a 2003 Sundance Altamar. Awhile back my blower stopped working, but I never used it, so just left that alone. However yesterday I tried to turn on the main pump (2 speed one) and the indicators light up on the display, but pump doesn't come on. I hear a low humming/buzzing instead. Is the pump dead? If so, I know the part to replace it with (Jacuzzi 6500-261) but I'm also curious if I could just replace it with a 1 speed pump and save money. I never run it in low speed anyway, so having a single speed would be fine. That leads me to 2 questions.... 1. Will it mess up the board in any way if I replace the 2 speed pump with a single speed one 2. The outlet is at a 45 degree angle on this pump. Does anyone know of a compatible pump that has a 45 degree outlet on it in a single speed? Thanks for your help!
Hi everyone, I am interested in buying a used 2009 Sundance Altamar in Charlotte, North Carolina. I'm looking to hire a mechanic to evaluate its condition before I would buy. Are there any mechanics near Charlotte who know this model who would be interested? If so, you can reply to this thread or email me at mjgold1 [@] gmail.com. Please let me know how much you would charge. Thanks! Mark
Hi, I am thinking about buying an older model Sundance Altamar and trying to retrofit it with Sundance's new technology, such as the Fluidix jets and ClearRay system. Does anyone know the Altamar models for which this would be possible? Would it be cost effective? For example, a new 2013 Altamar in my area costs around $10,000. I see 2002 Altamar models selling for around $1,500. If I could get the total retrofitting cost to around $5,000, I'm tempted to do it. I don't know if that's possible or not. Thanks!
