Question about Pool & Spa
Trying to burp the air out. I can't seem to get it to work. I fitted a new heater. Pool was empty. Had it going till I played with temperature control panel. Then it stopped with FL, flow low I think.
How can I burp it. Please help
I hope I can send some help to you from the other side of the globe. I work at a hot tub factory in the states and the most common failure on your type of pack is the pressure switch. I know it's mounted on the top left of you spa pack on the heater barrel thanks to your video. If the pressure sensor goes bad it can shut down the entire spa. I'm almost positive that you don't have an air lock based on your video. Pull the 2 leads off your pressure switch and use a wire to bypass the sensor. If the spa kicks on you know it's the sensor. FYI, if this works DO NOT run the spa without the pressure switch because it can be a fire hazard. Use that trick for diagnostic purposes only!!!!

Pull the cover off the control panel. You will probably find a button which would be accessible from outside the panel with a paper clip or pencil but is unlabeled. On the board itself by the button, in small letters it should say "reset". Push the button and see what happens.

Don, I suspect the error message is the cause of your problems. A flow error is either real (low flow) or not (bad flow switch). Either way, you get the error code displayed. Always take the filter out of the equation first to make sure it's just not a dirty filter causing the issue. A sand filter can be placed in the "bypass" position or a filter cartridge could be removed. Restart the pump and see if the error code goes away. If it does, clogged filter, real flow problem. Clean / replace the filter. If it does not go away, locate the pressure switch, pull off the two leads and jump them together. If the code goes away, false problem, bad switch. Replace it. Rob

So I assume you have pressed the button by pool to select the pool thermostat? If this doesn't work sounds like another mother board problem, or try powering down the unit a few minutes then restart. IF you haven't pressed the pool button, the read this: The heater comes factory set at 78° F. for the pool mode and 100° F. for the spa mode. If it's in spa mode it's trying to get to 100F. Using the up and down arrows,you can set the thermostats to a minimum temperature of 65° F., or a maximum of 104° F. If you desire to heat only one
body of water, the thermostat is capable of an off mode. As an example, if you only wish to heat the pool and not the spa simply depress and hold the spa down arrow, and the thermostat will lower its setting to 65° F. then go to an off mode.
