The topside controls aren't fused so the fuses wont be the cause.

It can only be either the PCB, the topside controls, or a bad connection at fault. Check that they are plugged in correctly, make sure that the PCB is configured correctly for your topside controls.

It's rare for both the main and auxilary topside controls to fail. You can try plugging in another main topside control without fully installing it... at least you can then return it (ask whether or not return are accepted, I don't personally accept any returns if parts are specially ordered) if it doesn't cure the problem.

Do I have the correct controller for my Hot Tub? I have a Jacuzzi Lexus L.C. with a Balboa F1089R1A processor. I ordered a topside control panel online and received a Balboa VL701S but nothing is working...

Curios, why did you order another control panel? I need some history, when it worked, how it failed, any other information like if it was moved or rewired for power...etc.

Balboa hot tubs..I just bought a used Balboa DU70CCAH hot tub. I need to know whether to use 8.3 or 6.3 from the tub to the breaker box. It looks like it is 8.3 wiring inside the tub on the panel but thats...

It will depend on how far away your breaker is from the control box. General rule of thumb is the larger the wire the better.
One of the biggest problems in our industry is customers end up going with a smaller wire because it will work and it is much cheaper.
Amp draw through a smaller wire from a long distance will kill your hot tub electronics over time.
The bigger the wire the better.
I say use the #6 size wire.

I have a Balboa vs 500 second speed inop clicknig sound from board,but when fill tub halfway both speeds work. with jacuzzi full second speed not working and no heat. please help!

It sounds like you have the possibility of a couple of things going wrong here. It could easily be a board issue based upon what you are saying. However, it could also be a pump issue because you are having limited success with filing the tub up half way. The best suggestion is to have a spa technician come out to assist you in determining what exactly is going wrong here.

You really have not provided enough details on the problem to help you diagnose exactly what is going on here.

Balboa vs500/501/502 gs500/501/502 I just refilled spa yesterday and now I'm getting error codes HL and dr both indicate low flow issues, The water level was re-filled to where it's always been. Any help...

A lot of times you can get an air lock as the spa fills. All you need to do to fix this is open the drain valve for a few seconds till it runs just water and no air. Or start the pump wile the drain is open. This should fix your problem. Good luck.

There should be a drain hose or hose bib type of fitting inside the equipment area. You may have to pull the cabinet panel off where the equipment is to find it. Some spas have the hose coming out of a hole near the same area and you can pull it out, they have a shutoff valve and are usually capped as well.

Hot tub maintenance

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.
