  1. The salt system it’s an unregulated device that’s actually a salt chlorine generator which works in conjunction with a titanium cartridge that breaks down salt to produce chlorine. You will pay a good amount of money for those cartridges plus for all the additional chemicals to get it to run. And because salt is so corrosive, you'll be replacing all kinds of parts and equipment prematurely. In a market where everyone tries to copy each other ideas, hence, so many trademarks and registered products, the Salt System is something that everyone but one manufacture agrees that its bad for the
  2. To fix a bogus heater limit error I finally replaced the Main PC board (Caldera #77089) on my 2004 Caldera Paradise Martinique, after having exhausted all other avenues--including replacing the heater unit. Finally, no more heater limit shutting down the heater (yay!). However, while Pump 1 can be started and run, Pump 2 does not start when the button on the Display panel is pressed. Pump 2 did work fine before replacing the board, and connecting the Pump 2 wires to the Pump 1 board tabs as a test proved that Pump 2 does still work. (There is a note associated with the 77089 boa
  3. I bought a house with a Caldera Spa (Series: Vacanza, Model: Marino, Serial: MRN2T1132). Any idea how much it is worth?
  4. I just obtained a Caldera Sarasota model from a neighbor, which I believe was manufactured in the late 1990’s. The filter cycle is set to run for 4 hours of every 12. The user manual says this can be adjusted, but doesn’t provide any information on how to change. Anyone know how to adjust the filter duration through the keypad for this old model? I’d like to adjust the runtime to either 2 or 3 hours.
  5. Looking at a Marquis Vector21 (V84), definitely a higher tier than initially intended, but price is ON PAR with entry level Caldera and HotSprings (Vanto. Rhythm, shocker!). Can anyone with experience confirm if $11,500+ is a good buy for Marquis V84 in SW Ontario? No matter how we look at it, other models with few accessories add up to nearly $12,000 so may as well splurge, right? Thanks in advance!
  6. Our panel has been acting up for a while and the last time I tried to adjust the temp it started flashing 4 dashes and the word power on the display panel. We just ordered a new panel which I know we needed anyway, but the new panel is still still flashing the same thing. We also replaced the high temp sensor but that didn't help. Can anyone offer advice? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi all, We recently got a 2004 Caldera Spas Utopia Geneva from some friends, built a deck and had it wired up but I'm having a problem. After turning both the 30 and 20 amp breaker on, the spa starts up. The 'LIM OK' light comes on and the 'HTR OK' as well. The circulation pump starts working and after 5 minutes it goes into the auto clean routine. The air blower starts and runs for a minute but when Jet 2 turns on low it trips the 30 amp breaker after a second or so. If I manually start Jet 1 or 2 it trips near immediately. I released the union on top of both pumps and only found one to
  8. We have a very small space - at most 7 x 7'. I am interested in a 2-3 person tub for our moderate climate home. I will use it the most (and maintain it, my husband is not as interested) and am average size with back, knee and shoulder/neck problems. A corner unit would fit best but am concerned about proper jet positions and if they are deep enough. Lucky to have well-reviewed dealers locally - but haven't found a filled corner unit to test. Considering Hot Springs, Caldera and Marquis. Grateful for your advice.
  9. Maybe someone can help. We lost power last week, not sure if that has anything to do with it. But hot tub was at 65 degrees the next day when it was set at 102. Any suggestions, no air stuck in the pipes. Heater on light is on , there are no error codes on the display. And hot tub will actually heat to about 74 degrees when the jets have been running for a while, but wont get any higher, and goes back down to 65 when you shut them off. Thinking maybe the heater just went or the hi limit sensor..yet no error codes. Any suggestions will help. Thanks a bunch
  10. I have a caldera Tarino hot tub. It is a 115 or a 230v model. When I received it from the dealer it had the 115 cord hooked up to it and I wanted it hooked up to 230v. How do I know that it is set up fully for 230v 50a and able to run the heater on high jet and not only on low. I also got it with speakers that are not hooked up does anyone know what I have to do to to make those work. I was told by the dealer I could by a Bluetooth adapter for it but I haven't found one that looks like it will work. And can I use the USB port located inside
  11. I'm down to these 3 manufacturers for my new hot tub, replacing a 12yr old Cal Spa. Wet tested all. Most concerned about Marquis being the smallest local shop. The debates over all foam or no foam for insulation is still a bit confusing. I'm looking for any pro's or con's with recent experience on any of these (warranty support, energy use, leaks, jet problems or other operational issues) Tubs being considered are J375 for Jacuzzi, Utopia for Caldera and Marquis Signature Epic. Thanks. Paul
  12. Replacing the Jet Pump motor on my 2004 Caldera Spa, and cannot get the pump section off of the motor. There doesn't seem to be any bolts/screw/nuts I can loosen to remove it.
  13. Hello everyone, we purchased a Caldera Geneva. The electrician came out today and asked us a bunch of questions we didn't anticipate. So we are looking for others input to make a good decision. We got the basic pro-lift cover, but were told the pro-lift IV, would give us more privacy from the neighbors. I was wondering if anyone has any advice/experience to offer? Also any advice on which direction for the recliner to face would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  14. I have a 1999 Caldera Spa's Martinique. Yes, I know it's an old model, but I'm renting a house and it's permanently installed, so it can either be a swamp (as when I moved in) or a functional tub. It seems to work fine, but I have one problem and one question: Problem: the circulation pump kicks in for a minimum of 2 hours twice a day (4 hours total), and when it does, the heater kicks in as well. This is a problem because the minimum temperature on the spa is 80F, so for 4h a day it's running the heater to get from 60F (or whatever ambient is) up to 80F, even though I don't plan on using
  15. Hello, We just received our brand new Caldera Salina spa yesterday and noticed that there were little puddles of water on the seats, and the cover was wet inside...Do they rinse it before they deliver it and that's a left over? Is it normal? I will call the dealer but want to know first if it is common Thanks!
  16. Hi! We are looking at the sundance Chelsee, J365 and Caldera Salina. They all have been quoted at aroud $9600-9700 except for the J365 that we could get for $9234 for a 2016 floor model. Those are supoosed to be sale prices. for president day week end. 1.They dont seem to be willing to negotiate really. Is that common? They all went down from the original price before we even said anything, but that's their final price and that's it. 2. Are those reasonable prices? 3. Is it correct to assume to going to a lower series (j200, sundance 680...) might end up being more expensive b
  17. Hello, We recently started looking for a 5-6 persons hot tub. We have no experience and no idea what we're talking about but we're learning. We looked at jacuzzi, Caldera and Cal spas tubs. A sale person told us that Caldera was the best, and that we would not find any complaints about any model....we quickly find that to be wrong, even though it does seem to be a good brand.He then told us we could get the Geneva floor model for 10000, tax included, with cover, steps, delivery and so on...We went home trying to find what this spa goes for, but it's so hard to find prices anywhere!!!! It
  18. My Caldera Geneva Spa is locked or at least there is a lock symbol on the control's display. I have unlocked temp and controls lock and everything works but the jets and associated bubbles. The manual does not state that there is another issue that can cause the spa to lock. This happened right after draining, cleaning and refilling the spa. Don't have the schematics or wiring diagrams to review although I am an electrical engineer by trade and can understand them. Spa is two years old. Any help is appreciated. BTW - I did turn all power off before draining and turned it back on when it was mo
  19. Hi everyone: I am doing research like I do on everything and think I have narrowed it down to 2 manufactures. Caldera & Marquis They both seem like higher end brands and I am trying to find what the real differences are performance wise quality of pump, jets, maintenance and insulation since I live in New England. One thing that stands out is the Marquis in made in the USA, but they seems more expensive? I work in the manufacturing industry and appreciate products made here. If there is anyone out there that has some pros and cons of the 2 brands it would be greatly appreciated. I will w
  20. I am new to this forum and I have been doing as much research as i can.(about 3 months) to research therapeutic hot tubs, it does not work so well. I go to the gym 5 days a week and know that a good tub will help by body repair. At this point I am leaning towards Caldera Makena. I definitely want a lounger but really want enough quality jets to hit my whole body. As more of you experienced ones out there know, more jets are not necessarily better. There are a lot of manufactures and styles out there is is very tough to choose. I am an engineer so i will research a lot. Any input is helpful!
  21. Hello and thank you in advance for your help. We are purchasing a new hot tub - not our first, but the first time we've purchased ourselves. We are trying to stay under $7000. Powerful jets are my number one concern because I use the tub for serious therapy. I've been looking so far at Caldera - the Vacanza Series, Vanto ($6500 quote), fits our budget but I'm a bit concerned about power and its warranty. The Bullfrog is intriguing - I realize I'll never buy new jetpacks, but it is nice to start with a customized tub (I have a $7500 quote on the R6) I'm hoping to go look at the Dimension
  22. Hi everyone. This is my first post, but I have spent hours reading this forum as well as a lot of other hot tub/spa information online. I'll tell you; my head is spinning! We have been overwhelmed with the different spas and options out there. Why I asked for help asap is because we looked at a used hot tub this evening & we need to let the guy know tomorrow whether or not we want to take it. First though, I'll give you some background information. Sorry, but this post will be long. We are new to hot tubs, so we are coming at selection from a newbie perspective. The main reason we want/n
  23. Hello there! Although we've been talking about it for a long time, last Saturday my wife and I, on a whim, went into our first spa store in West LA, Pacific Spas and Sauna. We looked around at their spas, and (after dry tests only) we're focused on the Sundance Cameo and the Caldera Cantabria. Although the tub will mostly be for me and my wife, we want a big tub for social gatherings. We like the idea of a lounger, but as I said, no wet tests yet. I started doing research soon thereafter, which led me to this place. And I've already done enough reading in the Hot Tub Water Chemistry to almo
  24. HI. We need your opinions & advice please. First, I'll say that this is a much shorter version of my first more detailed post which explains why & who will be using our spa/hot tub. (see here:http://www.poolspaforum.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=45231 We had narrowed our large pool of spas down to 3, but were only able to wet test 2, which we did this past weekend. They were the Caldera Makena & the Vitaspa Envie. My husband wants the Caldera because he likes the lounger better & felt there was more control over each seat, & I want the Vitaspa because I was disappointe
  25. I just thought I would share that my search for a spa had ended! After getting frustrated when despite talking to several D1 dealerships in the Twin Cities I was unable to secure a chance to wet test a tub from their Reflections line, I noticed Dolphin Pool and Spa on the side of the highway as I was heading home from another, unhelpful D1 dealership. I decided to pull over and stop in. Right away I noticed their low key attitude and I liked that. My salesrep, Margo was friendly and helpful. She seemed to answer questions honestly and in a straight forward manner. Since I liked what I saw, I m
