  1. Greetings, here's my first post on the forum. I have a 2007 Tiger River Sumatran that developed a bartop crack in the past month. I've order a Watkins Binding Resin Bartop Kit and a Watkins Acrylic Filler Kit. Before I dig into the spa and use the two products, I was wondering if I should drill a hole into where the crack terminates at the top to prevent further migration. An internet search reveals some people recommending this but I'd like to hear from an professional if this is a technique used. If this a viable way to help stop the crack from growing, what diameter drill bit would app
  2. So after months of online research, visiting local vendors, wet-testing, etc. I finally pulled the trigger on a 2019 Caldera Geneva spa and couldn't be happier. I have waited several months to post this because I tend to be dismissive of product reviews that people post with limited trial periods. I'm much more trustful of reviews from people who have owned something for enough time to truly test a product and live with it. My spa research and shopping and decision making is really a topic for a separate post and I want to keep this related to the Freshwater Salt System, which is the 2019
  3. Hello, I have an IQ 2020 control board that I am trying to replace for my Watkins Prodigy hot tub. My current IQ 2020 has the label that reads Watkins PN: 0974201 REV C. I found an IQ 2020 control board with PN: 1302501 REV F. Does anyone know what the difference is between these two IQ 2020's and will both work on my hot tub???
  4. I have a 2006 Watkins’s vanguard vv2h2936. I just got it hooked up and can only get jet 1 to come on. If I plug the leads from jet 2 into the terminals for jet 1 jet 2 will work. I’m not getting any voltage to the leads on jet two. There is also no jet display on the control head coming on like it does when I turn on jet one. Also I have no voltage to the heater. Heater ohms out at about 17. Incoming voltage is correct and landed correctly. Control jumpers are on jp1, jp8,jp9. Could the problem be in the control head? I pulled it out and looked it over and the only thing I seen was the
  5. I need to know if it is possible to reset the control panel. The temp got set to the max ut4 which is 107 and is too hot. The down button for temp doesn't work at all, but all other buttons work. Aside from replacing the control head which is difficult to find the old one that goes with the IQ2000, I want to know if I can reset to the 102 factory setting? Unplugging just remembers the last set temp but there but be some way to clear the memory. Thanks!
  6. We bought a house in South Dakota that had this Bengal Hot Tub. It worked fine for 5 years. Last year we spent the winter in warmer latitudes so we decided to leave it empty. Drained it and used a shop vac to suck out any remaining water. Filled it back up in May and noticed that it was leaking. Tried using that spa stop-leak stuff - didn't work. Using a car screw-jack, jack stands and a few blocks of wood, I stood it up on its' side. Found an old repair site and dug through the foam. Couldn't find a crack so I made a couple of repairs where I found hardened stop-leak. Th
  7. How does one remove the Jet Face (#2 in diagram)???? Directions say… Remove the jet by grasping the jet faceplate and pulling it away from the spa shell. With jet in hand, two o-rings should be on the rear portion of the faceplate. If either o-ring is not present, inspect the inside of the front wallfitting and remove the missing o-ring. To reinstall the jet, reverse steps 1 to 3.Important: Make sure that the o-rings are properly seated. It rotates cw and ccw and comes to a dead stop, but it won't pull out. I tried prying it off with a plastic panel r
  8. Went out to hot tub running, but no heat. Recently replaced heater, been running fine for a few months. See picture below. Thank God house didn't burn down! Thinking maybe electrician didn't hook these up very well, as it looks like maybe that's what caused this? This doesn't look like the normal relay burned out normal problems, does it? https://www.dropbox.com/s/lgn7630cx9osmhs/2017-12-21 21.55.46.jpg?dl=0
  9. I have a 2016 Hot Spring Spa Vanguard. When I have more than a few people in tub, the 30 amp breaker will trip. When I'm in by myself or with one person, there are no issues. Hot Spring replaced my 30 amp breaker -- but the issue is still happening. Has anyone experienced this?? I'm trying to figure out how bather load could make the breaker trip.
  10. Just wanted to share my experience with the community repairing motomassage jets on my Hot Springs Grandee 92-95 by Watkins, which came in "as is" condition with the house we bought. Besides of few other problems (that I fixed earlier), both motomassage jets had their "spine cords" broken, with some pieces pushed away and floating on the surface. All related tubes were in more or less good shape. A recommended jet replacement of "73307 Hot Spring Spas Moto Massage Jet Assembly" would cost me around $100 each. Spending $200 to replace these plastic pieces didn't seem to be fair, so I was loo
  11. Hi I have a 2000 hotsprings jetsetter model j that I'm attempting to repair. So far I replaced the heater circulation pump which got the hot tub working after 2 or 3 years of sitting for about 5 days after which it started to blow the gfci plug. I ohm'd the heater and it reads 10.8 ohms. When I reset the gfci it starts up Until it hits the heater and trips. With the heater unplugged it operated normally. What could cause the problem in the heater if the resistance is In spec?
  12. Hello, I bought a house 1 year ago, and it came with a HotSprings Grandee Spa, which worked great even after I refilled it back in April 2016. From the looks of it, it was manufacturd in 1999 or 2000. Anyway, I recently refilled the spa, and noticed that the heater wasn't working. TO be honest, I am not sure if the heater had been working before the refill, or if it stopped once I'd refilled it, because we hadn't used the spa in a couple of months. When I reset the heater, it clicks and clacks, I can see water moving through the inlet and outlet lines, but it kind of moves back and fo
  13. I've got a Caldera Geneva hot tub that I bought new in the fall of 2012. Aside from replacing the cover this year, I've really not had any major issues with it up until now. Yesterday, I noticed water on the ground around the edge of the spa. I pulled the side panel off to check things out. There was water around the circulation pump. It was leaking out slowly. It appears to be leaking from the large ring that you can tighten with a pair of channel lock pliers. I tightened the ring but it did nothing to stop the leak. My questions are: Is there an O ring that I can change within the
  14. He ya'll, its my first post altough i've been following the forum for a few years now. I have A HOTSPRING VANGUARD, serial VV3M2392, which I bought used, I'm not sure what year is it, and I have been using it for maybe 18 months, but recently it began to shut off itself more often, a message on the screen says "protection mode" or something like that because is in spanish, and says to check filters for cleanliness, to reset main switch or to call service. At first I fixed it temporarily by cleanning filters more often, but then I began to shut down more and more often. on the manual says tha
  15. Recently acquired my parents Hotspring Sovereign 2003 model. Had to replace heater relay board and small circulation pump. Panel lights operating as they shoukd now, spa is properly primed from what I can tell, ozone with bubbles working as they should. Now when I turned on heater breaker, set temp to 102, after about 5 minutes the breaker trips. I feel the water warm where the bubbles rise so it seems to be heating. Heater is Watkins no fault 6000. Any suggestions or advice would be helpful.
  16. I recently came across a Caldera Hawaiian Spa from a friend who said it didnt heat anymore...thus the cheap price. When I filled it up...everything worked except the heat. I thought it was strange because the heater itself wasnt bad...it just wasnt getting a full 240V. I rapped on the relay and thats when I saw the spark. I removed the board and sure enough...the soldering joint had melted off the relay. When I researched the internet I found out that the Caldera and Hot Springs IQ2020 first generation boards werent powerful enough to handle the heater. I mean, just looking at the rela
