Hot tub maintenance

I'm considering a Vita spa and a Marquis spa. The Vita spa's owner's manual looks like it requires much more upkeep. Is this true, or is the Marquis spa manual just minimizing the amount of work?

There will be the same amount of basic maintenance on either spa. The difference will be in water chemistry. you definitely want an ozone generator on either spa. Both are awesome Mfg of spas. they both have been around since the 1980's
Ozone will keep the water cleaner, fresher smelling and reduce the total amount of traditional chemicals used in any hot tub.
There are many other solutions for taking care of water chemistry out there without using the traditional types.
some are all natural.

SOURCE: just looked at 2000 coast spa hot tub with 1 6.5hp

a 6.5hp motor produces quite a bit of force. It should be able to support 30 jets just fine. Most spas range from 2hp to 7hp. Depending on your preferences, the 6.5 should be plenty but if you really want a powerful therapy jet, two 7hp pumps should be more than sufficient. They will also kick your electric meter up a few notches...
Two pumps give you more options, you don't have to have half of the jets turned off so one area can have more power, the dual pumps give you the option to run nearly all of the jets at the same time if you have more than just a couple people in the spa a once.

Balboa hot tub.. how to turn up the HEAT / TEMP , no owners manual, and does anyone know where I can get one?


You do not have a Balboa Hot Tub. That is the company that made the control panel for it. Id venture to guess it's either a Hawkeye, Barefoot or Master spa if it came with no owners manual. To turn up the heat simply press the Red "up" arrow on the digital control pad. Check out the link below. It's a quick reference guide to what I'm guessing is your top side control.

Hot tub wont come on


What do you mean "Jump it"?
Check with a meter, ACROSS both hot wires to get a reading of 220-240 volts. do not test across 1 hot and the meter lead on ground! You probably are not getting proper voltage to the hot tub. Or you may have a burned system fuse normally 20-25-or 30 amp fuse, which is found within the control box of the spa.

Balboa hot tub m7 wont power on at all


Either the spa is incorrectly wired or one of the fuses is blown in the spa pack. Typically this is due to your electrician wiring the spa incorrectly and blowing the fuse on accident.

I just bought a used balboa hot tub and have no expertise. Does the pump kick in automatically even when you turn it off it will turn back on instantly? Is that normal? If it is not normal what could be...


This does not sound normal, but in order to better diagnose this I need to know exactly what model of controls your spa has. This is easily found on a label on top of the control box in the spa cabinet. If the label is missing, then remove the control box cover and look at the inside of the cover for the schematic, should be a model number on it.

Control panel on hot tub is flashing ECN


The hot tub is in 'Economy' mode.

If you have a 'mode' button, press it until 'STD' shows. This will put the system back into the Standard mode.

If you don't have a 'mode' button drop me an email with a picture of your keypad and I'll try to advise you on what to press. hottubengineer@hotmail.co.uk

Need a users manual


Kathy,

I think what you're looking at are the part numbers for the heater and control systems used in some Jacuzzi hot tubs rather than the Jacuzzi model number. I ran into the same issue and discovered through some cross-referencing on the web (jacuzzi parts suppliers) that this is the part number control unit made by Balboa. Odds are they were used in multiple Jacuzzi models.

My suggestion: Look here http://clearcreekspas.com/model_id.html to identify the control panel for your Jacuzzi and then follow the link to the correct manual. Some cover multiple models so you will need to know the electrical requirements of yours (120 V or 240 V?) and then check the layout of each tub shell to determine which model is yours.

I figured out mine is a Jacuzzi Essence Model 350 this way.

Good luck!
