  1. Howdy! first time on this forum, hope everyone is having a good day. I'm trying to replace the circulation pump in a Balboa EL Neptune (pretty sure that's what its called) Original pump in Hot tub was a Waterway cp-1/15-1n22a 3410020-0E motor The pump motor specs are labeled as follows 1/8 H.P. 230v 0.8A S.F. 1 1725 RPM Continuous run time. Just about every reasonably priced pump ive found (sub $200) is rated at 1/15 H.P. Does it matter? Should I spend ~$300 to get one rated 1/8HP even if the lower HP motor has the same RPM? also the one i keep seeing (Iron Might 341
  2. I have a CAT200 Catalina Spas Hot Tub. Just replaced the large pump, small pump, circuit board and heater as well as the flow sensor. Now I turn on and get a FLO error. I have bleed all pipes I can. Primed the jets. Removed and replaced the filters. I even tried adjusting the pressure sensor. The hot tub will just not circulate. I may have mis-wired somewhere, I guess. The tub will heat and work when jets are on too. I am about to break down and pay for service but want to see if anyone has fixed this or has a CAT200 to compare wiring. Thanks!
  3. Thanks to Itchy & Scratchy, I don't even have my spa yet but after reading his experience with a used Marquis Spirit, I joined this Forum before going any further with my research in purchasing a spa. I have determined I want a Marquis. I would LOVE to have the Spirit, but a big price difference for me ON TOP of the costs for the concrete pad, electrical, rerouting my irrigation lines, etc., it is not doable. I originally wanted the Rendezvous. I love the size! I would be the only person using basically. I like the shape. Did not do a wet test, so uncertain as to how it actually per
  4. Hello, everyone, Another Newbie here asking your opinions to help validate my own purchase decision. Some background, Family of 5 with 3 children 9 and under. Looking for large tub, from a good, established manufacturer with solid dealer service/support. We obeyed rule number 1 on these forums and wet tested many brands and tubs, as well as online research to make our decision. We decided on the Artesian Island series Margarita. So now i'm at the negotiating stage and looking for advice on pricing, obviously Hot Tub pricing is anything but transparent, so as much as we have planned and prepar
  5. Hi Gang, OK, so first time spa owner and someone gave it to me. I pulled out both motors and had them tested, both OK and no cracks or leaks. It's called a Coast Spa but it's made by Northwind Hot Tub and it says it's a "Deluxe Series" its from about 2009. It's in place now freshly filled via the filter and now the startup questions since I have no clue. When I first power it up I see the display show: - the display initializes - it flashes 100 - it then flashes 93 - it then flashes 43 - it then flashes 12 - it then shows " Pr " after about 5 mins, you head a click and the Pum
  6. Hello, My wife and I will soon be a new hot tub owner. We are currently looking at the Sundance Chelsee and Jacuzzi 365. We are leaning towards the Chelsee as it seems to be more of what we are looking for in a hot tub. The Jacuzzi is really nice but the price is a little higher than the Sundance. We have received a quote for the Sundance Chelsee ou the door for about $8500. My question to you guys is is that a good price? They are also offering us 50 months of interest free financing. Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated!!
  7. Newbie buying advice needed. We live in Minnesota and looking to purchase our first hot tub. Brands we're looking at are Dimension One, Bullfrog, Sundance, Cal spas, Hot springs, maybe Marquis (based on some good suggestions I've seen in these forums). So far we've wet tested Hot Springs and Dimension One. Looked at Sundance (no wet test). Like the vibe of our local Dimension One dealer - they seem like nice, regular guys - no rehearsed hard-sell pitch. And they've been around awhile. We're leaning toward a 7 - 8' open seating tub. We're "wee folk" (all definitely under 6 foot) with two 15 yea
  8. Hi recently bought a used garden leisure spa don't know the year but the model I believe is a Camillia standard. it seats 6 and has 2 pumps. when I power on the spa normal or low pressure will come through the waterfall and the jets on the seats next to the waterfall. this is pump #1 when I press pump #1 a second time more pressure comes out of the same location mentioned above not a problem. the issue is that nothing is coming out of half the spa the jets are on . if I press pump # 2 button the #2 pump blows water out of the diverter about 2 feet high and the jets that where off are now
  9. We are staying at a friends house. My daughter innocently dumped in a bottle of bubbles, you know the kind that kids blow bubbles with? I don't know much about hot tubs but I do know that the bubble solution should not have been put into it. How can I clean and if necessary repair the hot tub before I leave? I should say that my friends are not around. They are allowing us to stay at their place during their vacation. While they will be understanding, I would rather have the problem fixed before they return. Please help!
  10. Good morning, I purchased a home a few weeks ago and have had enough time to start to get settled in. The home came with a hot tube and I've never owned one before. The person who owned the home didn't leave with me with any instructions, all he said was that it worked. I'm looking for some help on what to do to test everything on the hot tub to verify it works and get me going for the winter months. Check for leaks? Verify Heating element works? Verify Pumps work? Verify sprayers work? I'm just looking at how to do all this stuff and anything else i might need to do to verify I have a good,
