Vita spa L700C
Kevin Galeas posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasI Have a vita L700C whenever I try to use the topside panel it always blinks no matter what setting I am in and it wont heat up. The clock will blink, when I change the setting to see the water temperature it continues to blink, when I change it to the set temp of 102 degrees it continues to blink. I have replaced the recirculator pump and the heater element. I am going to put in a new topside panel due to it being hard to read due to the condensation that has built up over the years. All 3 pumps work as they should. I tested the new heater element and the Ohms were within spec. When i turn the breaker on and test the heater for voltage it only reads at 0.023V. The heater element is a 4kW @ 240v system. Any ideas or help to guide me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
Vita Spa 700 series Mystique
mythander889 posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasHi -- we're in the middle of purchasing a hot tub, and are considering the Mystique from Vita Spa ('mystique' on https://vitaspa.com/hot-tubs/). We're a little bit lost trying to find reliable or reputable information about it -- there are very few reviews, and it's hard to get a sense of which of the stats actually matter. The main draw for us on this tub over others we've looked at (from Bullfrog, dimension one, and hot springs) is the size -- it's a little bigger and should fit a few more people Has anyone had any experience with the mystique, or with Vita Spas in general? Are there any things you wish you knew? Thank you for your help!
Vita Spa Prestige advice
Karalk posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasWe have narrowed down to the final choice of the Vita Spa Prestige 500. We are doing a wet test next week. Does anyone have one? Pros and cons? Thanks!
Iowa Steve posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasI have a 700 Series Vita, about 10 years old. Has been a great tub overall. About a month ago, (with tub set at 102 degrees), found the water temp reading at 99. The circ pump was running but the heater indicator on the control panel was not lit. If I press the "temp up" button, to 103 or 104, the heater indicator on the control panel appears for 2 seconds and goes off again. (and it is not an indicator problem as I can tell the tub is not heating) if I come back a few hours later, the tub will be up to temp again, and if I adjust the temp up or down, the heater indicator goes on or off accordingly. this is a daily occurrence now. I have reset the tub to factory specs by turning off power for 5 minutes and then holding clear for 10 seconds per the manual. I have replaced the temp sensor, no change in symptoms. so, 1/2 the time the tub functions as designed, and 1/2 the time, it will cycle down to 97 to 99 degrees and not kick on the heater, or when I manually adjust the temp higher. so, my issue is one of a few things (I think). Either there is a "time issue" that it will not function in some time window, or it is a limit issue...ie; the tub runs and heats for a period of time and then it shuts down until something cools off and resets?, or just an intermittent "fault" somewhere. scratching my head.... (and of course this is happening in the middle of an Iowa winter..hoping not to convert my tub into a 300 gallon block of ice)
Vita Spa Schematic
malibujason79 posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasI have a Vita Spa 700 series Chateau, model DC780 and I'm looking for a schematic and repair manual/guide. I'm having a problem with both jet pumps not coming on, but the air pump, heater, and circulation pump work just fine. I'm thinking this is a board issue, I check for voltage at the pumps, and not getting any. I would like a schematic to make sure I'm checking for voltage correctly. What else could cause both pumps not to come on? Thanks for your help!
Vita Spa Ls Error Code
mdautel posted a topic in Portable Hot Tubs & SpasHi All, Just joined. I recently purchase a used Vita Spa (LC500/L700C Series) Circa 2003-2004 (I think).which had been in storage for several years. Got it all cleaned up and replaced the leaking heater and sensor. I ran the self test and all the functions seem to work with the heater getting warm during the test. After the test, I get the LS error code. All the pumps including blower seem to work. Also, the filter icon stays on all the time while the display is flashing the time indicating something is wrong. I can manually run both pumps, blower and lights. Any suggestions ? Thanks, Michael
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/need a hot tub is for my husband. He is 6'5, 40 years old and has early osteoarthritis. He is in a lot of pain after work if he walks or stands alot. He does residential and commercial construction - all aspects. So the hydrotherapy aspect is what we need it for. Money is tight - I'm forgoing getting a car and taking the bus because he needs a hot tub more. Doctor recommended it years ago, but we've never gotten around to getting one. We also have a small yard, but decided we can put it on the side of the house. The tub would probably be used every day by my husband and occasional use from myself and my 11 & 17 year old sons. We live in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and have very cold winters. It's not too humid here since we're in the prairies. I have psoriasis and occasional bacterial skin infections, so I would want a system that doesn't make it worse. We don't travel, so looking after it regularly would be no problem. We know we want a lounger and a cool down seat. Because my husband is so tall - 6'5, & my 17 yr old is 6'6, a tub with a long lounger is best. We've sat in all these tubs I'll list below, but he has only wet tested the used Down East spa so far. Warranty is very important to my husband, so we're looking for a comprehensive package, & my husband is more partial to insulation that is easy to get to - not the sprayed in full foam. UPDATED: We've decided not to go with #1 -the used tub. Moving it would be a hassle & we'd prefer to have a warranty. Also a no for #2 - the Sundance Peyton. 7 feet isn't large enough for my tall family. A few inches extra definitely makes a difference. NO for #3 the Ciara - instead possibly the Olympus - I'll type over the Ciara specs in #3. Same with #6 - the Bullfrog spa. The price was just too high. Question though, is 2 - 2 hp pumps enough? That's what the Makena has, and for the price, we thought it would have higher hp. (Prices are before tax) 3) http://www.jetsensationhottubs.com/#!olympus/cpyc http://alpsspas.com/models/olympus/ Alps spa Olympus model: 1st link is to the actual Winnipeg distributor and the 2nd link is to the Alps line. The warranty on it is pretty good. This tub larger and deeper, has ozone and 2 6hp pumps. The price for $7250 is a great deal. It has 3 pumps, ozone, full lighting package including cup holders and a stereo system. Comes with a breaker panel & she would give us a deal on cover lifter and steps. This one has 2 loungers though, so I don't know if we'll like it. We can sit in it, but not wet test it. We have only seen the pics on the web. The problem is these are in her back yard ,(new & packaged though) and she hasn't opened an actual store or warehouse yet, so we're concerned about warranty in the future. She said Alps would still take care of us if she stopped selling them. 4) http://vitaspa.com/2011/05/envie/ Vitaspa (by Maax) at Crown Spas store: The Crown store has a great reputation & great warranty. We spent time talking with the guy and sat in the tub. It's really nice. Its on sale for $7300 but that doesn't include ozone or any extras. We're waiting to hear tomorrow on what he can do with the price. My husband likes that its not spray foam insulation. We've heard that Maax is a good brand as well. After looking at this last week, we thought it was too expensive but after deciding warranty and a better tub is important to us, we're willing to finance a higher price. They will also give 3 years warranty from their store on things that are usually 2 years. They said they could fill the tub for us to wet test it this week. We're leaning towards this one if they can bring down the price even more. Their quote today includes ozone, clearzone II uv, steps, & cover lifter but total is $8900. 5) http://www.calderaspas.com/en/shop/paradise/makena/#tech-specs The Caldera Makena from Hot Springs/Oasis dealer: We saw it tonight, but didn't have time to wet test it. It's a really nice looking tub. The price is on sale for $8800, but he would give us the floor model, taxes included for $8200. It comes with the spafrog bromine system. The lighting package is great and we love that their is actual handles that light up too. There are speakers installed, but no stereo. The price for ozone is kind of expensive, but I wanted to ask about whether we should just buy an ozone kit online and install it ourselves. Is it worth getting ozone? Guess that's kind of another topic. The dealer would include cover lifter and stairs, and give us a deal on railing and anything else we want. The no tax or free salt system ended last week, but he's willing to honor it, so it's a pretty great deal. This tub also has the best warranty out of all of them. 5 years on most things as opposed to only 2 or 3 years for the rest of the tubs we looked at. I think I may bus it down there and wet test it later. We've heard great things about the hotsprings brand - our friend has one. We originally wanted the flair, but the lounger was too short. 6) New addition to list: http://www.northwindhottubs.com/freedom.html Northwind Freedom: It's the largest out of all of them at 92x92 and 40 inches deep. The other tubs were either 36 or 38. They said for $7800 we could get the floor model with ozone, upgraded insulation, a lighting package, steps & free delivery. Warranty wasn't that great, but it could be upgraded. The thing is, this one has NO LOUNGER, and we think we want one. The guy says most people don't like loungers & if they had one on their first tub, they get no lounger on their 2nd. I'm going to make a new post to see what people think about loungers. Does anyone here own the Freedom or a Northwind tub. I have no idea what the quality or reputation is. I also am not sure on what the best & easiest sanitation system for problem skin to use is - enzymes (we were told enzymes are the newest and greatest thing to use), bromine, chlorine, salt etc, and I'm not sure if we should let ozone included or not be a deciding factor. If ozone makes a big difference, would you recommend paying a lot more for the dealer to install it, or ordering one online. My husband is extremely handy, so it would be no problem for him to install himself. His (new, but small) construction company also has plumbers or electricians we can call on, (though my husband used to work with an electrician). Anyway, thanks again for your time & answers. I can't wait to read what you all have to say & I hope you're all enjoying your hot tubs! I'm so happy to have found this forum. Trish
