Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

I have a California Cooperage by Coleman Spa with a Balboa Instruments Model # DU-105-CCA panel. Everything works except the heater. Is there a reset buttom somewhere? Is there something I should look for to make it work, or did it just die and needs to be replaced?

SOURCE: Panel reads "water sensor opened"

I had the same problem. The water sensor is on a pipe running into your pump. It will have a circular clamp around it. Remove the clamp and pull the sensor out of the pipe. The wires should run into your control box. disconnect the wires and replace. My water sensor was part 7790. Not sure if you have the same one. Do an online search. bestbuypoolsupply.com has them for $50 plus 9 for shippng. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: layz spa pump

same problem I had so I seperated the globe by taking out the 5 screws around the middle then removed the nut from the hole the filter sits on its a strange fitting and must have a special key but I improvised by tapping it anticlockwise using a screwdriver and rubber mallet, once open identify the heater unit (it has a single wire going into it and is fastened to a length of metal pipe) and remove it by loosening the clamps at either side and pull the heater free, once free dismantle the plastic casing on the top of the heater inside you will see the live, neutral and earth wires, you can see the live (brown) wire goes to the water flow switch then the temp switch then the heater all I did was bypass the water flow switch by disconnecting the short wire from it going to the heat sensor and replacing it with the brown wire coming from the mains and it works fine now

SOURCE: I have power to the spa, but it won't power up

there are at least two separate circuit breakers feeding your spa and two reset buttons. the circuit breakers are located a few feet away from the spa in an electrical box.

the reset buttons are in the mechanical space of the spa where the pump and heater are located.

My pumps will not turn on. i have a ms501s balboa master spa. i checked the pumps and they worked good. but the control panel wont turn them on. what can i do?


Is there a message code on the spaside control panel? That would be important to know. If you see no error codes, chances are that you have 'dead' buttons on the panel, especially if you have tested the pumps via an other power source.

Spa Heater problems- Balboa VS-501 controls #54356.


Use a high quality external temp probe and make sure the temp sensor in your system is correctly reading the water temp.
If the water is truly 110 then you may need to replace the board completely.

I need to replace my Weslo Spa Comand Panel, 4 button, ovel. will the Balboa work.


The best suggestion in this case would be to replace the spa pack and upgrade. this is a really old system. You can replace the entire system for around $500.00 and have the latest working technology along with a new topside panel, overlays, heater, system, etc. The Balboa Value Pack Retrofit kit comes with everything you need along with cables. Since you have Weslo with an oval panel, the best suggestion would be the Balboa 54219-Z Value Pack Retrofit Kit. you can get it online by clicking on the link I have provided.

Hope that helps.

What is the difference between a Balboa VS500Z and a VS501Z


The Balboa VS500Z supports one two speed pump, an ozone, and 12v spa light and an optional circulation pump.

Whereas the VS501Z will support a two speed pump, a single speed pump or blower, an ozone, a 12v spa light and an optional circulation pump.

Basically the two are very similar except that the 501Z will support an additional one speed pump or blower.

The best suggestion if you are doing a replacement is to purchase one of the Value Pack Retrofit Kits available through Balboa. You basically get everything you need for the replacement, including the topside, cables, and overlay.

You can find everything you need to know about making the replacement on the following page:

This is most likely a heater issue. The technician needs todisconnect both heater leads to see if the breaker will hold. This will help you determine where theelectrical problem is occurring and why it is tripping.

My balboa spa says sl and isn't heating up


SLP or SL Message

If the SLP or SL Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Sleep Heating Mode.

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