  1. Hi All, Question on running multiple pumps from a single board connection. As background, the Thermospa spa I inherited has 5 jet pumps, a circ pump, a blower, a light and a diverter valve for a wave lounge. I had no idea how 'over-featured' this tub was, but it's all mine now and I'm working through a series of issues slowly (with much help from the guys on here). On my existing board (Balboa EL8000 Mach 3), pumps 2 & 4, and pumps 3 & 5 connect to the same connector on the board with a 'Y' or splitter connector. Then the 'hot' pin on one of the split connections is jum
  2. Hello- I am looking for a RS81 Pack for our new AquaRest/Balboa 2 person spa. Everything is out of stock- Any ideas? Used OK if not shot- Thank you very much!
  3. We are having trouble with our spa it is signature spa - balboa GS501 when we turn it on from the isolator the 188 comes on the control panel/topside, no pumps running. Nothing at all happening. sny suggestions on what to do or what the fault could be ?
  4. Hi team! I have a balboa hot tub. I have had to replace the heater twice in the last 8 months. I know that this shouldn’t be the case. They seem to last 4-6 months before blowing (trip the board and ohm tests show no current running through element). They don’t seem to show any obvious sign of damage, maybe just a bit of white and green around the connections. Does anyone know why the heaters don’t seem to be lasting too long? I am about to order another heater but wondering if I need to check or replace any other parts? could poor water health cause this?
  5. Hey when powering up my spa after being shut off for refilling. A message comes up on the top screen “J29” then says priming. once the normal spa screen comes up the message of “possible freezing conditions” appears. And pumps cycle on and off. the j29 is a jumper message and in the manual it says shortened durning power up and heater will not run until J29 is no longer shortened anyone have any suggestions Thanks
  6. I am writing to ask for help. We own an Aspen Hot Tub with Balboa parts. (M7 2000 parts) Our nightmare started about 6 weeks ago when we noticed our tub was not running right. It started to continuously cycle through the start-up mode like it was possessed. It could never move beyond 3 minutes post-prime. We were told that the Balboa M7 board was malfunctioning. We had 2 options . . . replace it or have it repaired. We opted to have it repaired. We sent it to a guy in Arizona who reported back to us that a 5v regulator was bad. He said he replaced it AND tested the rest of the board, w
  7. I just picked up a 1998 Dakota Skyler with a 4kW heater controlled by a Balboa LiteLD CCAJ board. The heater wasnt working, was corroded... I replaced it with a new 4W coil. Still no heat. Temp probe is good, pressure sensor is good. I'm wired on 240V. Pump works on both speeds. Supply AC is correct. Heater measures 120VAC above ground on BOTH sides when call for heat is on (heat light on panel on). Both sides of heating coil are 120 V above ground, 240 V above black, and 0V above red. Thus 0V across the heater coil and no heat. So both sides of the coil are electrically
  8. I have a Catalina Ventura with a Balboa EL8000 pack and an ML900 topside panel. The jets 2 button has become more and more intermittent on the topside panel to the point that it no longer works. The spa has a 2 speed pump for jets 1, a single speed for jets 2, an no third pump. I can see by the lights on the panel that the jets 3 button works. What are the ramifications (if any) to plugging the second pump into the jets 3 connector on the EL8000 board thereby using the jets3 switch for the second pump?
  9. Hi team. Anyone able explain the filter time option too me. Goes F1 to f8 , does F8 mean filter once every 8hrs or for 8hrs at a time ? Picture of controller attached
  10. I have a CAT200 Catalina Spas Hot Tub. Just replaced the large pump, small pump, circuit board and heater as well as the flow sensor. Now I turn on and get a FLO error. I have bleed all pipes I can. Primed the jets. Removed and replaced the filters. I even tried adjusting the pressure sensor. The hot tub will just not circulate. I may have mis-wired somewhere, I guess. The tub will heat and work when jets are on too. I am about to break down and pay for service but want to see if anyone has fixed this or has a CAT200 to compare wiring. Thanks!
  11. Hi I just replaced my brainbox and heater in my 30 year old spa with a Balboa VS500 unit. I am regularly getting a "DY" low flow code and have had no luck troubleshooting. The small 3/4 circ pump is installed after the filter, is it possible that there isnt enough flow through the filter to keep the heater supplied?? Any other ideas anyone has? thanks Dan
  12. I have a hot tub with a balboa system. I have had it and used it for years, I recently cleaned the tub and refilled, it was working fine until I accidentally overflowed the tub topping it off ( not the first time) ever since its been in EC mode, I know how to change it and I keep setting it to St mode but the system will not stay in ST mode. no matter how many times I flip thru the systems. I am at a loss.
  13. I've got this problem with my Balboa spa. Here's the problem. They heating element will not turn off when the pumps turn off so the hot tub reads as overheat. You can actually hear the water boiling inside of the heating chamber. I have replaced the board, water flow pressure switch and temp sensor. Still having the same problem. Does anybody have any ideas?
  14. Hi All I'm hoping someone out there will be able to help me with an issue I have with my Balboa GL8000 control pack. I have recently replaced the PCB and am trying to get changes to the dip switches to be recognised, I have followed the Balboa Tech Sheet to reset the persistent memory (several times) but the changes are not being picked up e.g. its in Fahrenheit rather than Centigrade, Pump 3 is disabled, blower is off etc despite the dip switches being in the correct positions. Does anyone have any experience of successfully resetting the persistent memory? Many thanks
  15. Hi, I have a 2002 Clearwater Spas St Andrew, it has 2x 3HP Waterway pumps (2-speed, 3721221-1D) and a Balboa SUV M7 control board. Pump 1 acts as circulation pump on low speed. Pump 1 recently failed, which also popped one of the two 25A TD Fuses on the board. I replaced Pump 1 and the fuse with new units, but the pump will not come on in low-speed mode, which is what circulates the water through the heater, so the spa is still unusable. You hear the board relay click when the low-speed should come on, but nothing happens. It works fine in high speed mode. If I swap Red and Black, it wi
  16. I have a Balboa EL2001 Mach 2 circuit board and ML700 topside panel with aux top panel. I am trying to pinpoint if I have an issue with the topside panel or the circuit board. The board was replaces under 2 years ago. The top panel acts like everything works, icons change like it is working, but nothing actually turns on. None of the 3 motors and not even the spa water light. All the fuses are good and I don't see any visible damage on the board. I would love to be able to unplug both top panels and test if I can get the circuit board to turn anything on. Is that possible?
  17. So last night I cleaned up my hot tub to be filled and started back up for the winter. I willed it back up with fresh water, turned the breaker on and noticed there was an ozone circuit board smell coming from the main pack. I didn't get any error messages on the Balboa ML700 control display. It went to "pr" for priming and then after 10 minutes it turned the pumps on and started to circulate the water. I set the clock, and the timers on when I wanted to the cleaning cycles to start (1 is 2:30 am to 3 am - 2 is 3:30 am to 4 am) I set the temp to 85 degrees, noticed that the thermometer icon wa
  18. Background: I have a freeflow tlx with Balboa 54115 Board set to run on 110v. I got it used and not working. I think the guy i got it from got it broken from someone else and couldn't fix it. This is my first experience with a spa. After consulting the wiring diagram, correcting some reversed wires and calibrating the pressure switch, all seems normal. The real problem was poor job of replacing the onboard fuse leading to intermittent board function which i repaired. Question: In a state were its below temperature set point: when I switch the pump to high speed, it st
  19. Question: I installed the Balboa VS500Z pack from Spaguts.com in August 2017. This weekend the control panel started registering code HL (Difference between temperature sensors and a possible flow problem) and eventually LF (persistent Low flow problems) The heater shuts off and the temperature drops significantly. None of the issues Balboa suggest seem to be present. Water level is normal, pump seems primed, changed filter. I can keep resetting the pump and it will eventually heat back up, but I have to be in the tub hitting the pump button every 5 minutes or so to mak
  20. DUMB QUESTION: I REPLACED MY HEATER ELEMENT ON MY 110V PLUG AND PLAY SPA; DOES IT MATTER WHICH SENSOR (A OR GOES WHERE ON THE TUBE? WHICH SENSOR IS CLOSEST TO THE HEATER COIL POSTS/COPPER CONTACTS (ELECTRICAL) AND WHICH IS THE FURTHEST? DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE? THX
  21. I recently bought a home which had a hot tub included with the sale. We finally got it up and running and have noticed it loses heat more than we expected it to. We are in eastern Canada and have had some nights down to -4C already. For example a night not long ago it was -3C and we had 4 bathers in the tub for approx 1 - 1.5 hours and the tub was down to 100 (from 104 set) when we got out. I left the cover off for another half hour after we got out to add chemical and the tub was then down to 98. One set of jets was running most of the time, 1 bather had the air turned on for most of the
  22. I purchased a used 1993 Coleman Hot Tub. I have been using it the past few years. I was getting a "FLO" error message from time to time, but it didn't seem to affect the performance. I was also getting an "ILOC" error once a week or so. It would just be shut down, but as soon as I hit a button or two it would fire back up. I replaced the temp sensor as well as the pressure sensor as I noticed that the wire had broke and had a poor repair job. I just filled it up for the winter and turned it on. It warms up to mid-90s and then an ILOC shows up. I wait several minutes, hit a button on the topsid
  23. Old Morgan Spa I replaced the 50745 board with a new M3 retro fit 52518 board along with a new topside controller-51058. I have 2 motors- 2 speed motors 1- blower No ozonator 1. On the new board I pulled the J10 jumper 2. J7 is on "A" side 3. J25 is on 60Hz There is a flashing FLO code along with COOL. I have tested the continuity of the pressure switch while the pumps are on and it is closed and open when the pumps are off. Pump 1 is running on low speed and high speed when press pump 1. When pressed third time the 2nd pump do
  24. Ok, So my wife decided we needed to get this used hot tub from her friend, long story short, I poured a slab and moved this thing to my backyard. Wired, and found/fixed leaks. Replaced 1 bad pump. (waterway executive 56 5hp Both are 2 speed.) Ok, so no Idea of the manufacturer, Cover around the filters says "Phoenix Spas" Control says Balboa The Spa Pack is a VS501z by Balboa. The heater is an M7 style SO... hopefully these are most of the details needed. I'm a plumber so I understand pumps and what not. Issue #1 The pump connected to the heater, is that supposed to be
  25. Ok to begin this post I need to apologize for the sad story and the length of my post….I honestly don’t want yall to think I am shoveling a sob story…Now that’s out of the way let me tell you what is going on. I am a mother of four kids. I have a son who has neurofibromatosis type 1 and Noonan’s syndrome and is disabled. He is a thriving college student that works around all of his challenges including tumors on his arm, brain and spine. He has pain every day.
