  1. I picked up a 2004 Hot Spring Envoy that has sat a few years. After getting it moved, wired up a new 50amp gfci spa disconnect, I filled the spa and everything started up fine, all the jets worked and heater was going. The next morning it was warming up good, one jet pump quit working(you could hear a relay click), after it got to Temp(104), both pumps would not work, now when you press either jet button or the clean button, it throws the breaker. Any help you be great, thanks
  2. My pool, built about 15 years ago, does not have GFCI protection. I bought a Siemens 125 Main Lug Load Center to install (Sold as a Spa Panel), as my existing panel is an older Westinghouse panel, and finding the proper GFCI breaker for it was daunting, and when I finally found one, is was crazy expensive, too. The Westinghouse box has two 20a breakers in it. One breaker is 110 volts. It is used for the light, a mechanical timer which controls a Pentair power supply for the salt-based chlorinator, and a small Orbit sprinkler timer with a single zone on it. The other breaker is 220 vo
  3. Hi. I’m baffled. The pool lights will not go on. The GFCI outlet connected to AquaLink RS doesn’t give electricity to either plug. I replaced it....same issues. Voltage tester showed power. But test button doesn’t work. There is a PX100 transformer. That’s mystery box to me. Any thoughts on what I can try? All the best. jim
  4. 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
  5. 2001 Hot Springs Grandee in near perfect condition used daily. Again, tube is in excellent condition. Has been used daily since new. Have replaced normal stuff over years to include circ pump, main pump impellors, jets, etc... Recently main heater 30AMP GCFI has started tripping after hours or days. I cannot tell you exact circumstances that trip the GCFI. It seems always to happen when tub is open and jets are turned on (requiring heating mode). I have replaced IN ORDER : 30AMP GCFI , HEATING ELEMENT , HEATER PCB CONTROL BOARD This is a standard HOT SPRING setup so
  6. Hey there! I have a Hotsprings Vanguard. It has a 50 amp GFCI for the heater, and a 20 amp GFCI for the rest. On power up, the main board goes through self test, and the moment the power is applied to the relay board, the 20 amp GFCI trips. I've unplugged the heater, pumps, primary circ pump and salt system, but the 20 amp circuit still trips as soon as the relay board is energized. I've looked closely at the relay board, and see no burn marks or indications of a short or or arc. Any ideas on how to diagnose this further? Thanks! Jim
  7. I have a pool light (no others) which will not turn on. The GFCI would trip immediately after I flip the switch on. My setup is this: I have a timer box with circuit breakers and one GFCI receptacle. The light and pool pump are not tied to the timer, only my chlorine generator is. The pump is not connected to the GFCI, only the light is. I turned off the circuit breaker that is dedicated to the light. I was going to plug a hair dryer into the circuit breaker and leave the light switch off to see if something other than the light would trip the GFCI. However, after turning the circui
  8. My tub was running fine. I shut it down for a good spring cleaning purging it with ahhsome. I cleaned the tub and filled it, now when I try to turn the GFCI on it trips after about one second. Does anyone have an idea why it would be fine yesterday and today not reset on startup.
  9. Hi, The GFCI is tripping right away when I turn on the breaker. I do hear a click coming from the control box when I flip the breaker ON. I have disconnected both pumps, the ozone and the heater but still get the same result. I have checked the GFCI breaker by disconnecting all load, flip the breaker ON, and the breaker stays on. Any ideas? Thanks, Kevin
  10. I've done a searching and read a lot of posts. I think my problem may be a little different. I moved this spa to a friend's house in January. It had been working fine for me, but I moved. He already had wiring in place from another 110v Hot Springs Spa, one model larger. That spa had started leaking through the shell, but otherwise was working for years. We plugged the Prodigy in and it worked for several months. Then he drained it for a while and left it with just a foot or so of water. (Probably irrelevant, but part of the history.) When he decided to start it up again, the gfci off the m
  11. I have a Legacy Whirlpool Enterprise VS that I purchased in 2011. The tub is hooked up directly to a dedicated 50A GFCI breaker. About 5 seconds after power is supplied, the breaker trips. I have tried troubleshooting the source of the issue by isolating each component one at a time and powering up the tub in between each disconnect. No matter which component is connected, the breaker trips. Even when all of the components (including the heater) are disconnected from the circuit board, the breaker will trip. Each time power is supplied, a few seconds pass, and I can hear something click
  12. Hi, new member I am helping my brother with an install of a hot tub he got off craigslist. He was told it was in working order, but it has been disconnected over a year so no way of knowing for sure. Installed a new GFCI disconnect for the spa. It does not trip with no load. However when we connect that spa and power on the GFCI it trips. We have disconnected all blowers, sensors, heater from the main board. With only the main board connected as soon as power is applied the GFCI trips. A small popping noise can also be heard from the main board. We are thinking that there is a problem with t
  13. I have a problem with my spa pump tripping the 50amp GFCI breaker. I have been through everything I can think of with this spa. It has 2 2 speed pumps, one which connected to the filter and heater (pump 1) and one that is attached only to some jets (pump 2). Both pumps are identical, new 2 speed 240V pumps. I have also recently replaced the heater, ozonator, and GFCI breaker. I have a Balboa MAS225 control board. Pump 1 runs on schedule because it is used to filter and heat, it comes on as soon as the hot tub is started up (breaker turned on). Pump 2 only comes o
  14. I have a 2007 Solana TX i got for free a month ago. It won't heat up, and to me it won't stay on long enough for it to get hot, yet the breaker doesn't trip, something isn't telling it to stay on. The ready light is constantly flashing. The manual says one of the sensors. So I replaced all sensors (Thermistor, high limit and pressure switch) still flashing ready. So I moved on to the heater. I replaced it and still nothing. So that only leaves the circuit board and the GFCI power cord. Well i tested the power cord GFCI and it trips, but it makes a quiet buzzing noise and can feel a vibration.
  15. Had some work done to the spa lately and not sure if I really trust the guy that worked on it 100%. At least his memory is bad. I have two panels in my garage...one for regular house...one for the 220 stuff including SPA, and the circuit breaker has a GFCI as part of it. THEN, I have another 'panel' thing near the hot tub with breakers for the hot tub, and another GFCI thing. How many of those do I need? Spa guy says the one in the spa panel needs replacing...says it may have been causing an issue with my spa's heater basically never turning off. First time he was here he looked at
  16. Let me first say that I am not attempting to do any electrical work myself, but my landlord sends his general maintenance guy to do the electric work on the pool. I'd like to be able to know if he's doing the work correctly. Our light went out a few months ago and a pool guy came out last week to replace it. He tried to check the GFCI but we don't have one. He wouldn't replace the light and recommended an electrician. The junction box is a few feet from the pool and is a box with a front cover (no GFCI). The light switch is in a breaker box that is dedicated to the pump and light. Do I just
  17. We purchased a C45 caldera spa which is used. My husband ran all the electrical. We have the breaker box which is new. The gfci is popping on this box. The breaker in the house is fine. Not popping. We thought it was a bad breaker so we went back to Home Depot and got another breaker. He put the new breaker in and it is doing the same thing. We are having the electrician come out and check the spa later today. I hear that each motor should be checked separately, as well as the heater and other parts to try to figure out what may be wrong. The spa runs for a few minutes then the breaker po
