Your economy spa is equipped with a hot stick. This "hot stick" is nothing more than a PVC manifold that forces the water through multiple 1/2" ports that creates enough friction for the water to heat itself. YOUR HOT TUB HAS NO HEATER. The benefit is that there is no heating element to corrode and replace. The down side is that it takes quite awhile to heat the water. If you start with water that is 55-60 degrees it will easily take 48 hours to hit 100 degrees. Keep in mind that is dependent on the outside air temperature. Good luck with that!

Balboa filter circulation will not shut off. Temp OK. Not in continious mode.Contacts not stuck.


What model of balboa control do you have?
Will it come right back on after power down / power up?
Does it have a mechanical time clock?
Is temperature of water Hot?
when temp control is scaled down, will it turn off?
what do you mean - Temp ok?
If a mechanical time clock, pull the wires off of terminal 3 & 4,
isolate them! They will be HOT.
1 & 2 are for the timers internal 24 Hr. Motor.
but... First turn power off!
Turn power back on, if pump stays off, bad timer.

My Balboa 300F hot tub will not heat up. I am not able to get it out of economy mode. What can I do?


First, balboa does not manufacture hot tubs! They make control systems for hot tubs. If you are no longer able to switch between modes, then your topside control panel buttons are dead or falling. But... Even if you are still in economy mode, spa should still heat up. Once a demand for heat is recognized, you have a "Heat Call" and heater should come on. Is the "heat on" light, illuminated? If so, water should be heating, if not heater element may be bad? A multi meter would be good here: is there proper voltage at terminals on circuit board to heater? If so, bad element! If no voltage, then heater is not necessarily bad, probably just fine, I would then look at sensors? Good luck

Balboa hot tub wiring diagram


CAUTION: Electrical work and repairs can be dangerous, especially around water. There is a risk of shock or electrocution, which could result in serious injury or death. We strongly advise that hot tub electrical wiring be referred to a licensed electrician. Local code requirements for wiring vary and may differ from the educational examples on this web site. The local code regulations must be followed, with permits and inspections obtained. The installer should read and follow the hot tub owner's manual and associated electrical component owner's manuals and instructions.

Hot tub keeps running all night keeping me awake. How do you shut it off? It's a Great Lakes.


If the system is the Jacuzzi 52221-05 system mentioned in the subject header, there could be a stuck relay causing the problem and you might need to get a spa technician out to assist you in repairing the problem. However...

If it is a Great Lakes system as mentioned in your message body, then there could be a programming issue allowing the filter cycle to run continuously. Provide a model number off of the Balboa control. Then we can provide you an instruction manual or reference card to assist you in resolving this problem. you can also search our online manuals at our website. You can find them online at:

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.
