Question about Pool & Spa

Open Question

Hi. When my hot tub has been sitting on economy mode for some time it starts to switch the jet 1 on and off and it seems to go through a surging cycle.

The only way I can get it to reset is by switching if off at the mains and leaving it for some time. My Atlantic 2 hot tub is fitted with a Balboa VL801D controller.

SOURCE: hot tub stuck in 'SL' mode

Need to know what buttons your topside control has... depending on the model, some have a mode button which you press and release and then immediately press the temp up or down, to select SL for sleep (no heat), ST for standard (heat as needed) or EC for Economy (only heat during filtration). If the mode button is not present, and you have a single temp button and light button, try pressing and releasing temp and then immediately pressing light button, repeat until choice appears, then wait, it will hold last displayed mode.

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

How do I return my hot tub to factory settings


to get your tub back to Std setting it is a matter of pushing the combination of the mode button if you have one or the temp button along with the jet button or the light button at the same time.
this sequence will go from Std, Economy or sleep mode.

How do I get my hot tub back to standard setting instead of Economy mode


This is a combination of buttons on your topside. Either push the mode button and the up/down arrow of the temp settings or the jet button the up/down arrows of the temp setting.

How do I tell if my spa is in standard mode


I don't think this unit has a switch between economy and standard, it must always be in standard mode. Below is filter cycle programming in case you need that info.

Filter Cycle Programming
The first filter cycle begins six minutes after the spa is energized. The second filter cycle begins 12 hours later. Filter duration is programmable at the Master Control Pad for 2, 4, 6, 8 hours or for continuous filtration, (indicated by
"FC"). The default filter time is two hours. To program, press "Temp", then "Jets." Press "Temp" to adjust. Press "Jets" to exit programming.

In econ mode my 1998 spaform hot tub does not appear to heat but it is ok in standard mode.


in the economy mode it will only maintain a temperature so that it will not freeze. Economy mode is mostly for vacation time or for winter if you are not going to be using the hot tub for an extended period of time.
Put it into the standard mode and you will be able to have a HOT tub and will function as it should
