Ec = Economy mode versus Standard mode.
all electronic control systems with digital controls, or solid-state controls, have a built-in timer. Jets will only stay on for 15 minutes. Some as long as 20 minutes. They will not stay on longer than that! Because moving water, because of kinetic energy or friction, will heat the water to a boiling point, if Jets are allowed to remain on indefinitely. That is why they automatically turn off, or should turn off.

I have an EC display on my panel


That means your "Heating" mode is in Economy! Without knowing what make our model spa you have, or the manufacturer of spa controls, difficult to assist in telling you how to switch to other modes. Maybe try this:
Pressing the "Temperature" button and then immediately the "Light/Jets" button may change the system back to Standard? Once you press those buttons, the "Ec" code comes on and stays on (flashing), and then you can press the "Light/Jets" button to toggle between Standard and Economy and maybe SL - which is Sleep modes.

Good luck

EC keeps showing on my temperature screen can not find anything in the instructions. Help


Means "Economy"

You probably have a Balboa Control System.
Find the "Code" number on the label of the unit and do a Google Search. Find how to switch between Economy and Standard.
I recommend that spas be on Standard.

But if the spa is hot and is not giving you any problems, and the only irritant you have is not knowing what EC means, you can leave it alone, since you now Know.

Good Luck

What does Ec mean


EC on a Hot tub shows that it is in "Economy mode" meaning the spa will only heat during a filter cycle. Not a setting to be in if you live in "cold country" (you risk having the equipment freezing up)

Over heating spa


Are Jets staying on HIGH?
Are your controls mechanical or digital?
Exact Information of the spa control system, not the spa manufacturer, will help us to help you. The box below with all the wires coming in & out. Name, model, code & serial #'s will help.

When jets stay on & don't turn off, water will heat up just by circulation causing "Friction".

If mechanical, your thermostat may have failed. If digital, your temperature sensor may have failed.

Dirty filter can cause this as well, if your flow sensor is failing.

On my hot tub control panel Balboa M1 is the code Ec?


Your spa is in Economy Mode:
Ecn or Ec MessageEcn or Ec Message

If the Ecn or Ec Message is Alternating with the Water Temperature on the Display, the Spa is Operating in the Economy Heating Mode.

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

Ecn or Ec is Alternating with Temp:
The Spa is Operating in the "Economy" (Ecn or Ec) Heating Mode.

The Water Temperature is Sampled Only during Programmed Filter Cycles. The Heater will Only operate and Heat up to Set Temperature during the Filter Cycles. The Water Temperature will probably drop Below Set Temperature between Filter Cycles. Other Heating Modes are Standard, Standard in Economy, and Sleep Modes.

Ecn or Ec is ON Solid (Not Flashing):
The Current Water Temperature is "Unknown" (- - - or - -) while in Economy or Sleep Mode.

Between Filter Cycles, while in the Economy or Sleep Heating Modes, the Pump has not turned ON and the Last Water Temperature is not Current. To read the Current Water Temperature, either Change to Standard Heating Mode or turn On the Heating Related Pump, and wait at least 2 Minutes.

I received my brand new ez spa today and once I got the water in and pushed test on the gfci the spa came on and so did the jets. I understand that the motor needs to run to heat the water but does the...


Yes, the jets will run anytime the heater is operational. This is neccessary to keep the plumbing from melting, and also to evenly distribute the heated water. Most hot tubs only take 4-5 hours to heat up, but the easy spa takes very long because they use a very small heating element. Usually only 1.5KW.

What does ec mean on my hot tub


EC stands for Economy mode. This is a setting that tells the computer to check the temperature of the spa less frquently, as well as running fewer filter cycles. Spas should be set to EC while you are away on vacation or not planning to use it for a while

Tub is not heating to temperature and flashing a Ec message on the temperature screen.


the Ec message is reffering to the mode the tub is set for. Ec stands for Economy mode. In Economy mode the heater will only come on during the filter cycle you have programmed. It will take a while for the tub to actually heat up in this mode. Change the mode to St mode which stands for Standard mode. Your manual should explain how to do this. usually you hit the temp button then the light button to change from mode to mode. Once the St is in the read out window don't touch anything and it will except the programmmed entry automatically. In the Standard mode the tub will keep heating until the set temperature is reached. then it will come on every half hr or so to check that the temperature is maintained.
