EC stands for Economy. Change the mode until you reach ST and then it will stop flashing and function as normal.

Economy mode only allows the heater to function when the hot tub is on its filtration cycle.

My catalina spa keeps popping the breaker and won't turn on


First, we have to establish what you mean by turn on the unit. Is the GFCI breaker set on when you try to turn the "unit" on? What are you activating to turn the "unit" on? A switch, a disconnect, a button on the topside controller, etc.? Need clarification before we proceed to diagnose. At what level do you understand electricity? Is there a licensed electrician available?

Please answer and we will take it from there. OK?

The instrumentation panel says "SL" and the spa isn't heating.How do I get it to heat again?


You have it in "Sleep" mode. Spa will not heat normally in this mode...

If the SL Message is Alternating with the Water Temp in the Display Screen (we call this "Flashing Sleep"), the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode.

If the SL Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) in the Display window of the panel, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

SL or SLP is one of the Modes you can program your spa into:
EC - Economy
ST/Std - Standard
SL/SLP - Sleep

It is advised you keep your spa in Standard mode. Push the Jets button then immediately push the light button. Each press of the light button will scroll between these three modes.

Good Luck

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 in EC with light flashing


Ecn or Ec Message
Ecn or Ec Message

If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

If the Ecn or Ec Message is ON Solid (Not Flashing) on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode, but there is No current water temperature because the Spa is between Filter Cycles.

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

Hot tub stuck in 'SL' mode


Need to know what buttons your topside control has... depending on the model, some have a mode button which you press and release and then immediately press the temp up or down, to select SL for sleep (no heat), ST for standard (heat as needed) or EC for Economy (only heat during filtration). If the mode button is not present, and you have a single temp button and light button, try pressing and releasing temp and then immediately pressing light button, repeat until choice appears, then wait, it will hold last displayed mode.
