SOURCE: What is the difference between

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:

Hi,

DR code - Inadequate water detected in heater.
HL code - Hi Limit, Spa over heat. In your case the Hi Limit is preventing the element from burning out.

This means there is no water or not enough water flowing through the heater.
Common causes:
Hi Limit sensor failure.
Blocked suction, skimmer.
Are the gate valves all the way open/up?
Pump is not functioning correctly, impeller/wet end failure.
These are the most common, but there are also other causes.

I hope that helps

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.

Hot tub emptied while a way found leak have fixed but heater will not work is this a fuse or what system is a vs500z


The heater works when there is flow through the pump. If the pump is working and the thermal overload switch was reset and still no heater, check all fuses. There may be three or four in the control unit.
