  1. I'm preparing a concrete patio that will have a 7'x9' hot tub with a Vac-Formed ABS Pan Bottom. Master Spas shows the location of a 6"x6" location underneath where to run the electrical. The local hot tub shop where I purchased the tub however said NOT to come up through the pan bottom but have the electrical come up through the slab outside the tub and the run the conduit through the side wall of the tub. That sounds easy enough but isn't very appealing to the eye or friendly to toes and shins. I'm looking for recommendations or Pros/Cons for doing it either way. If we
  2. I just picked up a 1998 Dakota Skyler with a 4kW heater controlled by a Balboa LiteLD CCAJ board. The heater wasnt working, was corroded... I replaced it with a new 4W coil. Still no heat. Temp probe is good, pressure sensor is good. I'm wired on 240V. Pump works on both speeds. Supply AC is correct. Heater measures 120VAC above ground on BOTH sides when call for heat is on (heat light on panel on). Both sides of heating coil are 120 V above ground, 240 V above black, and 0V above red. Thus 0V across the heater coil and no heat. So both sides of the coil are electrically
  3. To anyone who can help, I have an M-Spa J-213 Luxury Exotic portable spa, which had been having some electrical issues. I got a newish power distribution board from a friend to fix the problem but I have no idea where all the wires plug in at. If anyone happens to have this spa, I would very much appreciate a picture of the board correctly wired up so I can get this thing running. Equally valuable would be some advice from someone knowledgeable on the subject. Thank you
  4. Folks, Have a 2002 Maquis spa, with a 1 (of 2) new pumps and a new heater. Wired myself. Ran fine for several months, now that it's winter, seems to consistently be tripping the supply (not the GFI cut-out box) CB. Have some milder weather, so testing again, but what is reasonable to expect? In "standby mode", with only the one pump on low and the heater on is when this is happening. Is this a hot tub problem, or an electrical problem? Seems to run fine, even with all pumps on, for about 10 mins, then trips the CB. Thanks!! Z
  5. I have a need for some lighting and therefore a separate 115v 15amp circuit and the nearest location is the Hotsprings spa sub panel. Now I know the Hotsprings spa requires a dedicated 50amp circuit. Still I was considering - if okay to tie in to the 20 or 30 amp breaker for some low voltage led lights. I realize this is not code but I believe the spa draws near the maximum required amps on both the 20 and 30 amp breaker. 1. Has anyone else done this tie in successfully? 2. Did you tie in to the 20 or 30 amp circuit (i'm considering adding a single 15amp receptacle) 3. I ha
  6. 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
  7. What position are the white, red and black wires to be attached to the back of the motor? Please end my confusion. We have a Leisure Bay spa with a Series S2 Board built by Balboa. It allows the spa to be wired 115V yet can be wired as 220V. After removing the motor for cleaning out dead bugs reinstalling it was easy until it was time to wire it. Now I cannot figure out where the black or the red wires go. The phrase that appears Jeffery where is: red is high speed". My motor is connected: 2 is White, 3 is Black and 4 is red. Now two sources say the red should be number 3 and the back number
  8. I am expecting delivery of Beachcomber "Copper Cove" soon. It is rated at 55 amps and calls for #6/3 and no longer a length of wire than 70'. Well, That aint happening because the shortest distance that I can possibly run service from the main breaker box to a cut-off to the tub is about 140'. So, my plan (indeed I have implemented most already...I guess I'm just looking for reassurance or a wave-off if I am asking for trouble) is to run #6 wire (red, white, black, and green) all in individual insulation within a 1" PVC conduit from the GFCI breaker cut-off to the tub itself. That distance is
  9. Just purchased a variable speed motor (10A max), and decided to completely re-wire from the house to the pool. Old switches and receptacles were rusty, etc and seemed like a good time to upgrade everything. Running 10-gauge wire out to pool inside pvc conduit the entire length. Would like to install a plug end on the pool motor instead of hard-wiring, so I can easily remove pump/motor assy for the winter here in CT. Using a US MOTORS/EMERSON ECOTECH EZ #EVSJ15-NS Variable Speed Motor wired for 230V. Motor only calls for 3-wire connection (L1-black, L2-red, and Ground-Green). However, when I lo
  10. Hi, Three wires are disconnected from the circuit board near where external power comes into my Hot Spring Sovereign. The wire colors are green, white, and black and appear to run to the heater. Where should these wires be connected? Terminals P2 and P3 are open, and the GND hole appears to be missing a screw. Here's a photo: http://imgur.com/PKHGaY8 I don't have the manual and am not sure what year the tub is. An electrician told me that if it's 240v then it doesn't matter which terminal black or white go to since polarity doesn't matter. It would be nice to see a photo of what it's su
  11. I purchased a used Hot Springs Prodigy H hot tub. They originally had it wired using the 115 VAC wiring. When I installed it I went ahead and converted the tub to the 220 VAC converted Spa wiring. I did everything as described. Used 8-3 wire from the panel to the sub panel (55ft). then 10-2 and 12-2 wire from the two (30A & 20A) GFCI breakers in the sub panel to the hot tub (8ft). All wires are sealed in the liquid tight casing and fittings. I removed the jumpers on the Terminal block and installed one at the 4 & 5 locations and installed the program jumpers in locations 1, 2, 3
  12. Hello All, I acquired a hot tub from a buddy who bought a new home with the tub left behind. He didn't want it, and the tub was in really nice shape, so I figured what the heck? I've read as much as I could about how to wire up the tub correctly and to code. Not looking for a shortcuts, but would like to save what dollars I can. It's a 220 / 50 amp set up. The tub sits on my deck. I was able to run four #6 THWN wires from the tub to the shut off box mounted on a deck post (about 6 feet away) from the the tub. I ran these wires in pvc under the deck to the tub. (The deck is high eno
  13. The Story behind the tub. i purchased a balboa hot tub from a spa company in my city and this tub is a 1998. when i first set everything up they forgot to send me the pump so when i called them they couldnt find it and gave me a brand new ultra jet pump. when i wired everything up the lite leader board wasnt putting out the right voltage so i had to get it replaced. once i finally had everything said and done the problem im having is the following When i wired the pump up the diagram on the lite leader showed brn blu and blk going to pump as high low and common. and the wires that i have fo
