I bought an early 2 thousands thermospa Concord Deluxe and have put money into it and finally got got it working with all new jets and a lot of new hoses and pumps. However I am missing a relay that I believe mounted to the top of the control panel that allowed me to use pump 3 I believe. Thermos ball does not offer that relay anymore and I guess I'm just hoping to find somebody who has the relay for sale. Right now I just plugged that pump into another port and use it that way I only have one seat not working
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 jumpered straight to one of the 240V spade connections near the incoming electric hookup. Is this a common and acceptable way to run 2 pumps from a single board connection? Where the hot connection on one is coming from a different 240v connection I’m guessing that it only shares the ground with the board connector. Is there any downside to this arrangement? Does this change any of the power requirements on the board, or as long as the incoming power is 240v does it not matter? The GFCI would remain rated the same at 60W. As a follow up question, even if this is an acceptable/common practice, these pumps would need to be controlled topside separately. In addition to my main control panel (heat, pump 1, 2, blower and light), I have a single button panel for pump 4, a single button panel for pump 5, and a wave lounge panel that controls pump 3 and the associated diverter valve. My board has control connections that allow me to hook these all up and control the corresponding pumps/diverter as required. The ultimate reason for my question is how I would shop for a new PAC/board if I ever need to. When I read the specs for spa PACs or individual boards, they mention the number of jet pumps supported (never 5), but how would I know if there are enough 240v spade connections to reproduce the scenario I currently have? Then, assuming I have available 240v spade connectors for all of my pumps, how can I tell if there are sufficient topside control connections to be able to control them as needed? As of now it appears that the EL8000 is still available, but the price varies up to $450. This is more an exploratory exercise to see where the breakpoint is between replacing a board and replacing the entire PAC. This is a Thermospa and I’m continually running into challenges finding replacement parts as in some cases the part was specifically manufactured for Thermospa and has a different part number, although in most cases it just a rebranded standard part which I find out after some research. Thermospa is now defunct and this spa is coming up on 12 years old. Sorry for the long post. I’m trying to learn as much as possible to prepare for future repairs and bring my stress level over this spa down. Who said hot tubs were relaxing? Thanks, Rob
Hi All, One of the buttons on this topside control (for a wave-lounge) has stopped responding. How do you remove this? I can't see any screws or other fasteners from underneath. Is it just sealed on with an adhesive sealant? Do I pry it off? Use heat? I don't want to break anything if there is a trick. Also, once I get it off are there any serviceable components that I might be able to fix, or is this a replacement job? Thanks, Rob
I am trying to decide between the Thermospas Olympian exercise hot tub and one of the Artisian South Seas spas I do want to exercise in my hot tub, I am just not sure I want to spend twice as much on it. Thermospas has the best warranty I have seen so far and great ratings. The quality seems excellent, however, I do also want to relax, enjoy the jets, and have fun in my hot tub as well. Excercise spas don't seem to cater to that as much. Artisian has good ratings as well, however, they have the worst warranty I've seen with only 3 years. The spa is just the right size with the right amount of jets in all the right places so that is great. However, when I asked about how long it would take to heat it up 10 degrees in case I tried to exercise in this spa, he told me 1 degree per hour. That seemed awefully long compared to Thermospas 10degrees per hour. I am also a little concerned about the quality of this spa compared to thermospas after seeing/hearing all of the information. Any advice on the hot tubs or my decision? Thanks!!
