Question about Pool & Spa

1 Answer

Why does my Morgan 5 person stand alone spa heat the water so much hotter than the temperature set?

When we get out of our spa (hot tub) we turn the temperature down to about 70 degrees Fahrenheit. When we turn it up we increase it to between 95 and 100 degrees. It heats up so high it is unbearable. The temp on the readout set and actual temp vary significantly. Any advice appreciated.

SOURCE: water temperature thermostat misread

You most likely have a bad water temperature sensor. Replace the water temperature sensor that is probably near the discharge side of the filter pump. That should take care of the problem.

SOURCE: My water temp is reading 50 degrees too high.

This is probally your temp sensor. It will be mounted in one of your pipes and held in place with a stanless steel clamp.and have a wire running back to your control box and plugs in on the low voltage side of the control. good luck.

Your temp sensor has gone bad. This is a small tube with wires coming from it. You will find this on the left side of the water manifold. Follow the wires to the front of the heater and unplug it from the temp board. Install the new one in the reverse fation. good luck.

SOURCE: Pool Heater Mis-reading Temp.

Your temp sensors are on the heater, a small tube that slides into the water manifold, usually on the left side. On the remote it will be in one of the pipes coming from the pump or the filter. If it is after the heater you should move it to between the filter and heater. It will be a tube that is in the pipe with a stanless steel clamp holding it in place.
To find out wich one it is you will need to remove the remote from the system by takeing the wires that go to it from the wireing inside the heater and wire nuting the wires in the heater together. If the heater runs normal then it is the sensor for the remote if not it is the sensor for the heater. Let me know how you do and if need be we can get a little more specfic for your system. good luck.

Heat will not shut down, continues to get hotter


there might be a broken hot water pipe somewhere and so that might be causing the heater to stay on as its not getting to temperature.

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.

Jacuzzi hot tub, Water is too hot. Heats until it trips the system. I have replaced the analog temperature control,


1) Safety question first
Why hasn't the GFCI tripped.
If your spa is not protected by ground fault., then you are at serious personal risk.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-GFCI.html#arc-fault

2) Replace the element.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html

3) If element is cracked, it can continue heating to ground wire, causing runaway heating.
This applies to spas, and water heaters of all type.

If a floating thermometer is more than 3-4 Degrees F off what the control panel display temperature then the temperature sensor has likely failed.

Spa thermal overheating


Turn off all power to the hot tub as soon as you realize it is overheating. The spa should have an automatic shut off when the water temperature reaches about 112 degrees fahrenheit. Call your hot tub dealer or manufacturer for service options. There are a variety of conditions that could lead to the overheating of your hot tub, but may differ in various hot tub models and brands. Check the water level of the hot tub. Low water levels could be the culprit for the over heating, so you may just need to add more water to the hot tub.
Check the shut-off valves in the hot tub. If they are closed while the hot tub heater is on, it could cause the water to reach unsafe temperatures.
Clean the hot tub filter. A dirty filter could be blocking the flow of water, causing the water to sit in the hot tub and overheat.
Turn the power back on after finding the problem and talking to the hot tub dealer. The hot tub will probably not start back up until the water reaches a safe temperature

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.

Its been on for six hours now and its not really getting any hotter, and i cant turn off the jets. how long should it take for the spa to heat up?


It can take up to 24 hrs according to the manufacturer. It heats the water by overheating the motor by the water jacket around it or by cavitation of the water. Depending on how old it is. I have had one for a few years. Once the water gets up to temperature it can maintain it.

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.

Pump is running ever 5 minutes. The heat in the


Sounds as if the 'mode' for the tub is set to sense the temperature of the water. see if there is a setting on the control box to a 'timed' setting for filtering and heating instead of controlled by the temperature setting. the problem is the the control box is away from the water and when it calls for heat it is because the water is cooler there than in the hot tub. so when it calls for heat and the water starts to circulate it gets the hot water from the body of the hot tub and then shut down because it senses the 'hot water'. make sense?
