Older BeachComber 500 Spa Pack question


Recommended Posts

Good Day all!

I'm in the process of refurbishing a 2001 BeachComber 500. New Hush & Main Pp, cover and the spa pack/topside control panel looked in good shape so i installed it all and wired it up yesterday. There's power running through the spa pack and up to the control panel but the control panel seems to be no good as it doesnt light up or respond. Its all Balboa parts in these BeachCombers. what's compatible as a replacement control panel is my question. I'm in Canada and went to Hottubsupplies.ca; the control panels don't have any product description in them so i cant verify if the plug will plug into the Spa Pack or not. please help

Ref; the Spa Pack is a Balboa 2000

outstanding thank you so much. 

what in your opinion would be a economical spa pack replacement? i would hate to spend $300 on a control panel only to find out i could have replaced the whole kit and kaboodle for not a whole lot more.

Last one I replaced was due to a similar issue (not saying this is your issue) was able to buy a topside through the Beachcomber outlet in Oakville ON 905) 829-3175 they had it in stock. When you power up the spa does it start up the pumps automatically? Disconnect the topside and see if it runs on automated. Circ pump should run and spa should heat without topside. Let us know results

there was no activity at all. power was registering through the whole spa pack via a multi meter but that was it.

@CanadianSpaTechFelt really good talking with Pool & Hot Tub Depot on the phone today. You weren't kidding, their customer service was amazing. I ended up doing the wifi gateway on top of the spa pack. We'll see if that's worth it. She also hooked me up with a bromine tablet starter pack and shock this, and ph that. i have a lot to learn. I should upload some pics of my install for you guys!

 

update: for the firrst time in literal years, i figured out how to easily get my phone pics onto my laptop for the purpose of uploading them to a forum. i feel like a teenager again.
