Question regarding pump amperage

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had a board burn up on me with a loose heater wire.  I contacted the guy who sold me the tub and he gave me an extra board he had laying around.

My question is: 

Old board pump 1 and 2 are labeled as 15FLA

New board pump 1 and 2 are labeled as 14FLA MAX

If I install this new board will my pumps trip the breaker or worse burn up this board?  Or is that 1 amp difference not a concern?

If it matters I have Dynasty Spa with a Spa Builders Gecko board (old one)

New one is a Gecko S Class

Labeled where? If the relays on the board are rated for 15 or 20 amps (typical) then you will be fine. 

Control system amperage ratings are about circuit breaker size and what can run all at once. The individual components are standard ratings, usually 15, 20, or 30 amp.
